does that have a silonoid on the starter or seperate from the starter? either way i would test the silonoid. i usually take a screw driver an touch it post to post on the. make sure to keep your hand on the handle an not on the metal because you might get shocked. usually when a vehicle wont turn over but clicks its the starter but if it doesnt click then its the silonoid. hope this helps.
That would make sense, because when he jumped your car if he left it hooked up for awhile. Then he charged your battery up, so it started the next day. Then you drove to his shop and back it ran the battery down. It's easy enough to test and change alternators you could take it to autozone or O'Reillys if there is one close they can test your alternator. If you have more questions about this or if you would like to try and change it yourself just reply to this post and I will walk you through it.
check the conections of the wires at the starter and silonoid disconect battery first as to not short anything out by bumping the engine wich is grounded if all conections are good then the bendex in the silonoid is not engaging all the way to operate the starter or the broshes in the starter ar woren out eather way just replace the starter a new one comes with the silonoid on it and they are only about 45-65 bucks at schucks and have a 1 year warranty. i dont recomend just replacing the silonoid on the starter cause adventuly you will have to replace the starter any ways. or if you are on a budget then u can remove the silonoid from the starter and sand the bendex in the silonoid with some fine grit sand paper and use air to blow any debres out of it and reinstall silonoid and it will get u by for a short time.
bad silonoid on starter
the actual cable on starter is bad even though you replaced the positive battery connector the whole cable could be bad
also your new battery might not be a heat battery example= a battery that cannot handle heat and will die on you this indicates a dead cell in battery
bad alternator not charging battery
bad ignition coil
scorched spark plug wiring
dead cell in battery even though the battery can show good it can still be bad
battery's these days are usually refurbished battery's practically every one recycles batterys so its a chance that you got a bad battery try a jump then while vehicle running disconnect the positive post of battery if vehicle dies its the alternator
i myself had to do a battery swap 4 times before i got a refurbished battery without a dead cell this something that is a pain but once you get a good battery then everything should work
