Question about 2004 Dodge Intrepid
Car sat for approx 8 months without being cranked I believe. after jumping the battery, when I turn the car off it won't crank and I have to jump start it again
Just to add to goalie39's post, the battery should have a voltage reading of about 12.4 volts for the battery to be fully charged. Also the water that you add to the battery needs to be distilled water not regular tap water so as not to add impurities to the electrolyte mix. You can also pull the battery out of the car and drop it off at an autozone store for them to do the charging and testing for you.. for free!

The battery should be taken out for a long drive or put on a charger for a few hours to determine if it is dead or not. a few minutes with the engine running will not let the battery recover sufficiently.
Check the water level in the battery, ensure the water covers the plates but is below the rings.
If you have done this, then the battery has probably sulfated and will need to be replaced.
