    Need more info. Does the car crank over? Is there a clicking noise when you try to start the car? If the car is 5 years old with only 80 miles on it did you replace the battery? When you tried to jump the car did you let the battery charge a little before you tried to start it?

    can't count the number of times I've been told battery is good...did you check it for 12v and have it load tested? Have you cleaned the contact surfaces on both battery terminals and cables?

There are a few thing that could cause this. It prob. is not your alt. you would still be able to jumpstart it. I would suggest having your starter checked first. You can have it tested at most auto parts stores for free. It will save you some $$$ if that is not the problem. hope this helps

Infiniti G35 wont open

You can not jump a dead battery

That is also an unsafe practice

Have to disconnect any battery that is
dead & try to charge it first or replace,
if it is over 4 to 5 years old & died

My battery wont start my lexus ls 400

More then likely your vehicle has a parasitic drain on the battery . A control module may not be powering down or something is on in the vehicle. Testing the electrical system like in this video is the way to find out .

Car won't start until jumped

Most likely the battery. Most auto parts stores will check it for free with the hopes that you will buy your replacement from them.
