Battery low on cranking amps, the car will not crank with jumper cables no power (not even lights).
Battery may be stuffed, also check your earth wires may have corrosion between terminals and clamps. clean with a wire brush then with some hot water.reconnect jumper leads and see if you have power to vehicle. also your jumper leads may not be heavy enough cable to power your battery, hope this can help you,cheers, darren

either your alternator has gone or your fan belt is not there which helps the alternator to charge the battery get a volt meter on your alternator to see if it is kicking out what it should be

Alternator problem, the alternator charges the battery when car is running, so it has probably died now. Was working at reduced capacity for a while, which is why you were only getting a partial charge for some time. Now you have an open circuit completely as alternator has failed completely, time for a visit to an auto electrician. PS replacing acid in battery with distilled water is not a good idea. It probably was time for a new battery anyway.
