Check the output of the alternator. If it is fine then sulfur build up on plates in battery. Replace it.

You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.

The first thing to do is have the battery tested, just because you charged it doesn't mean it will stay charged if the cells are sulfated up or shorted.

If my vehicle receices a jump start and it won't hold a charge , what is wrong with it ?


Depends.
If the alternator is charging, and the battery will not hold a charge, I would suspect the battery.
If the alternator is not charging the battery, I would look at the fuseable links and connections.

When i stoped the car 24 hr the battery cant start the car


Check the fuses inside your power distribution box by the battery. I think there's a small (like 15 amps or less) fuse there for the alternator. If they are good,problem could be a weak alternator, loose belt, or poor connections at battery, or a battery that won't hold a charge.

The car was running fine one day then the next day it would not start. We tried jumping it thinking the battery might be dead and it still would niot start. The car has power until we take the jumper...


Sounds like you have a toasted battery or alternator. Have you performed a load test on the battery? Have you tried to charge the battery? First remove the battery and charge it externally from the vehicle. If the battery won't hold a charge, or won't hold a charge of 12 volts, replace it. Once you have the vehicle started, test the operation of the alternator. It should be putting out at least 13 volts back to the battery to keep it charged - if it is putting less than 13 volts or more than 16 volts, replace the alternator.

I have a 98 S 10.The battery won't stay charged but the volt meter still shows 14 while running.Any ideas will help ,Thanks.


Ya, when the car is running, you're using power from the alternator. So it will show 14 volts as long as its running. The fact that it won't hold the charge means the battery is shot and you probably need a new one
