SOURCE: cutlass supreme wont start
It could possibly be the starter, but before you get that far make sure the Battery cables are connected very tight. If loose the car won't start or do anything. Also make sure the battery cable is grounded.

The fact that a jump made the thing work really rules out starter and solenoid. If you got a clicking but no start, then a jump fixed the problem, there are really only 2 possible causes. Since the first is a dead battery and you have said the battery was fine, then it has to be the second, which is a poor connection between one of the leads and the battery. Sometimes, oxidisation builds up under the connector and this will cause the connection to fail although it looks good. Clamping jump leads to the connector probably disturbed it and made the connection good again. Remove each cable clamp, clean battery connector and the clamp on the cable thoroughly with emery cloth and reconnect, As you're doing this, also check that the connections that hold the cable into the clamp are good and tight and have no corrosion.
REMEMBER that if you disconnect your battery, you may loose the security code to your radio/CD. An easy way to avoid this is jump onto the cable connectors from another battery (Like you were jump starting it) so that the power to the radio is maintained during the procedure.

Agreed, you can do one of two things. Replace the alternator, or get some new brushes and try out your soldering skills. Good luck.
