Hello ,take the cables back off and use the cable wire brush to clean them and the battery post, reconnect them and see if that fix the prob.. , if not then you have to check the solenoid on the finder if it has that stile , you can also short them across to check them , but not a good idea if you are not mechanic inclined

1997 Dodge Dakota Sport, V6. Truck died while driving and won't start.

You need to know if it is getting spark to the plugs and fuel pressure before you start replacing parts.
It could be as simple as the ASD relay.

I have a 2000 Lincoln LS V8 car runs fine, but the wheels will not move! My husband hit the car in the snow and the car drove down the street and then completely stopped while it was still running. Starts...

if he hit a snowbank he may have ripped a transmission cooling line off..check fluid level in transmission..look under the car for a collasped trans filter cover also..look for reddish or brownish fluid on the ground under the car..looks like weird colored oil.also look at cable shift linkages and see if they are dammaged.. fix if broken..repost findings please..and do not get cold doing this...

My truck won't even turn over. I can jump it and it runs but when shut off it won't startagain

if it turns off as soon as you take of the jumper cables the problem is the charging system. it could be the alternator or relay or a fuse. and after that you need to charge the battery.
