How are the battery cables? Try disconnecting them at each end and cleaning them. Reconnect and try jump starting. Ifbatterycables are not making a good connection, the alternator can not charge the battery and the battery will go dead.

Car wont start need help no power when when try to start

Will it start with a jump from another car or booster? You may just have a dead battery, or a bad alternator that isn't charging your battery. Usually it is one of the two. The battery doesn't hold a charge so it is junk. or the alternator/generator is bad and not charging the battery. Easy way to check alternator is, If the car will start with a jump? while it is running pull positive terminal off battery. If the car stays running it is the most likely the battery is not keeping a charge. On the other hand; if the car stops running when you pull the terminal off the alternator isn't providing enough electricity to charge the battery or run the car.

There is also the possibility nothing is wrong and you left the interior lights on all night.

Could be a bad battery, and or alternator, if the alternator does not charge the battery when the vehicle is running your battery will drain causing no start.

What could be wrong if the battery light came on and not long after we lost power? when we got a jump start two times it would not hold the charge long enough to even move it?

It sounds like you have a bad alternator. Be sure to check to make sure your battery connections are tight and clean. If it is your alternator you will need to charge your battery before you run your car after replacing your alternator. You may also have a bad battery but generally if you jump a bad battery your car will stay running as the alternator will keep it running but if you ran your battery dead a simple jump start will not keep the car running if your alternator is bad. Most part stores can test your alternator and battery. Your battery will need to be charged before it can be tested. They do not need to be in the car to test them.

I have a 2000 Dodge Durango 5.9l all wheel drive, 120,000 miles I have replace the alt and battery within the last week check every wire comming and going, the car will start sometimes and most of the time...

Your alternator is not recharging the battery. You need to check the connections on the alternator. You should have 12V on the "FIELD" terminal on the alternator. If not, find out why. Check for a blown ALT fuse.

Also, check the voltage on the battery when the engine is running. It should be more than 12V if the charging system is working correctly.

Won't hold a charge

its the battery. the battery holds the charge and the alternator charges it so when you jump the car it stays running because you alternator is providing power when you shut the car off you have a bad battery that isnt holding the charge needed to start it again.

Car won't stay running.

alternator does not hold a charge it simply charges the battery by unhooking the battery you are taking all voltage from computer and car will not run the proper way to test your alternator is use a multimeter and check voltage at battery while car is running if you have 13-14 volts it should be fine.
