Try replacing your battery as it sounds like your battery is not holding charge. When you get a boost from other car your using the other cars power to start yours. It only takes a little power to light dash lights etc but takes a LOT of power to start motor.

SOURCE: dashboard lights and gauges go out, windows won't work

Your alternator is out. Those are classic symptoms of alternating going out. The alternator recharges your electrical system and when it goes out a list of strange things go on inside the dash, and you won't be able to go very far on just a battery. I'm glad you at least made it home. But yes you will need a new alternator for sure. Please rate this response so I can get my ratings back up to 90% at least.

SOURCE: 2000 Jetta Radio is dead after a dead battery jump start

Some German cars have anti-theft device inside to make it useless to steal...check at the dealership to see if jumping the battery will activate this(the car thinks its being stolen) .

your battery is so dead and or shorted it won't allow enough current to keep the truck running it could be a wire ground or positive not allowing enough current take the battery back to the place of purchase and have it tested it should be under warranty.I wouldn't try to start it by jumping it anymore try a fresh hot battery I think it will fix it

These are indications of a dead battery. Have a load test done on the battery to check for a dead cell. check that the battery posts and terminals are shiny clean and tight.

Battery wont charge but has power, lights come on but it wont turn over


My first guess would be a bad connection at one of the battery posts, or a dead cell inside the battery.

Try replacing your battery. It takes a lot of power to start your motor but only a little to run lights etc. When you get a boost from another car your using the other cars power to start yours.

Sounds as if the Alternator is not charging, alltough it could be a bad battery. Check the connections on the battery and make sure the cables are tight. Jump the car again, and if it starts check the alternator for output, it should be putting out close to 17 volts if the battery is dead. If the alternator charges then you probably have a battery problem, and need to replace the battery.
