check the resistance on the wires from the battery to your fuse panel and your ground wires also check to make sure you have good connections inside your fuse box if all is good there try to bench test the starter by applying a direct 12 volt power supply to.
IT's those short drives that burn down a battery! The starting of an engine requires mucho electric to get it running. The alternator then charges the battery, but slowly! If you also have the lights and stereo on it is even slower. Get the battery FULLY charged with a commercial battery charger. Then check to see if the alternator is charging up the battery after you start it. If not, replace the alternator. If the battery dies overnight or in a few days...replace the battery.
Unfortunately this is indicative of a failed alternator. When teh vehicle is started teh battery provides teh initial power to turn over the starter and then it stops and allows teh alternator to provide the power required to keep teh engine running (fire needed requires spark, air, and fuel) When an alternator dies the battery has a RCA or reserver capacity amps that indicate how long the car will run on batter power only. Since you indicated a sudden decrease in the car and a dead conditions with failure to turn over then it leans towards the bad alternator. Depending on your mechanical ability you can remove the alternator and have it checked at the local aprt store. Try jumping the car and then ave someone follow you to the part store.. yo uwill like have to rejump it several times... if you arent comfortable removing alternator. If your battery has been running the car on RCA than having input back into it from teh alternator then its likely it is burned out... So replacement of alternator and battery are recommended.
If the engine is turning over and it still wont start try shooting a little starting fluid in the air cleaner to see if it will run .. if so your fuel pump is either bad or the fuel filter is getting dirty.. thanks and holler if you need more Jerry
