This is most commonly caused by a burned/loose alternator connector or a defective rectifier in the alternator itself, have the battery tested as well, if the battery is LOW OR STARTING TO GO OUT IT CAN RUIN THE ABOVE PARTS FROM OVERHEATING OF THE ALTERNATOR, Kragen and Autozone do this charging system test for free, but still check the alternator connections.

My car not stating. If jumped it stat after 12 hours if not using it is not stat until I jumped it

Check the battery, either it is nearing the end of it's lifespan or something is draining the battery. Try another battery and see if the problem persists, if so, you will need to find the cause of the battery drain, could be a trunk light staying on or some other unseen fault
