Then all of a suden a morning when i went outside to turn on car it wouldnt strt. so i put the jumper cables and it started. then next day it was dead again, did the same with only difference that when i started the car i unplugged the red post and it was still running so it wasnt the altenator. what can it be?

ok i had kinda the same problem. if your father or bf is decent with mechanics ask him to check any see if there is any spark if not tell him to check the cranksensor to c if there is an current going to it, also when u go to start the car is there a (theft system light that comes on in the dash and flashes if so, turn the key fully as if you were going to start the car but dont crank it and leave it be for about 15-20mins or until the light stops flashing. then turn the key off and try start again. the thing is that when u install a stereo into one of these cars theres a anti theft system that stops fuel from going to the injectors. thats why when u install a aftermarket stereo u are supose to get eh harness so that it doesnt engage the ats(anti theft system). and if there is no current going to the crank sensor cut the wire long enough to hood an extra wire to it and then hook it up to ignition fuse in the fuse box(inside the car) this will send a a current to the crank sensor so when u turn the key on it will start. this is only a temperary fix. just gives u enough time to pick up the money to bring the car to the garage and get it checked correctly. anything else just ask.

SOURCE: cutlass supreme wont start
It could possibly be the starter, but before you get that far make sure the Battery cables are connected very tight. If loose the car won't start or do anything. Also make sure the battery cable is grounded.

I am no expert, but I just had a similar problem. The car would shake and buck when accelerating. It finally just died and would not start. After sitting for some time, the car would start and run a while, then do the same thing. I thought fuel pump. The dealer diagnosed distributor. After replacing, the car is running perfect. Something to think about. Good luck.

If it starts, even after turning motor off (immediately) while the engine and ambient temperature are quite warm, it could be the starter relay (which is inexpensive), a starter- not inexpensive- a neutral-safety-switch, or an host of other electronic problems that Navigators/Expeditions are notorious for tormenting their owners.
The relay is what I finally was able to have fixed- and it was only $56 to have an independent shop do it.
