Question about 2008 Buick Lucerne
Dangerous practice to try & jump a dead battery
The battery cables could be loose at either end or corroded internally
Most likely the battery is worn out, if original to car
since it was new, or the starter solenoid is worn
You do not want to jump any vehicle made after the
year 2000 or your asking for possible problems with
You need a good battery that has been tested & fully
charged, then only jump with a jump pack,not another car

Given the steps you have taken, only one of two things this can be is a resistive connection between the battery and the starter solenoid terminal. Or the battery itself has a bad internal connection. Bear in mind: you cannot crank the engine through the average set of jumper cables unless the battery in the dead vehicle will hold and deliver a good charge. Jumper cables are not really intended to start the car, they are for boosting the good, but low battery in the car being jumped.

Loose or coroded battery terminals or starter, clean battery connections, try it, if that doesnt work, probably starter
