Question about Cars & Trucks
Could be all manner of things, but i would start with the regulator/rectifier - get that replaced & work on from there, you could have seriously damaged the internal workings due to consistent jump starting, that should have been the time to ask what was going on , now you have just confounded the issue

Sounds to me like you drained your donor battery to the point where you can't jumpstart your car anymore. If you jump a car and it runs for a little bit but then dies that means your alternator is toast. If it was a bad ground, you would see sparks or a fire... Your battery only starts the car, once it is running your alternator supplies the electrical system and charges your battery back up. If you need more in depth help in replacing the alternator go to www.contour.org and get on the forums.

how old is your battery,have you tried a new one?Sometimes a really stuffed battery also interferes with the ECU,and can result in switching things on and off.

with the battery fully charged try scraping the positive over the terminal on the battery and see if it sparks like a draw is sucking out amps if theres no draw on the battery it wont spark at all (good) if it sparks (bad) you have something grounded and killing your battery.. gl

okay try this....talk to your parts store and get a battery load tester, and find out if the battery is indeed dead. My guess is it sounds like the Altenator is dying. they are around 50-100 and can be install by a pro in minutes.
