If your battery is the original one, it is probably getting very weak (that's 13 years old). Batteries last approximately 4 to 6 years then loose potential rapidly from that point on. If that is not the case, then you have a short somewhere in the wiring that is draining the battery.

1996 toyota camry starts with a jump, replaced alternator still does it

Sounds like you have a bad battery. If it won't take the charge the alternator is giving it, then it won't start. Take it up and have the battery tested to see if it is taking or holding a charge.

Check alternator voltage at back of alternator ( big wire ), if you have no less then 13.5 volt's, alternator is ok, check for blown alternator fuse or break at wire from back of alternator to starter then to battery, could be a bad fuse link at starter.

87 toyota camry new battery wont keep charge, alternator checks okay, in dash bulb for charge and brake and lights stays illuminated?

Generally if charge light is on, alternator has a bad diode in it. This lets the charged battery lose its power by flowing in the reverse direction. It sounds as the alt., is either not connected right or is swtill bad

Vehicle starts, howwever transmition does not shift.

as soon as you say that the battery goes flat it pins one thing at me
your alternator
most cars these days run from the alternator and not from the battery
this can stop warning light ans wipers etc
it also charges the battery while driving
however it dose not explain the transition not shifting into gear
change the alternator and let me know what happens
