Question about 2006 Toyota Corolla
I had it jumped and it started right up drove 60 mi home and turned off and tried to start it again and it wouldn't start just the clicking again. Do I need a new battery?
You definitely need a new battery. replace it, and have the charging system checked when you do. If you do it yourself, use a volt meter to make sure that your battery is holding at least 14 volts when the car is running. anything less, and your alternator is bad. I dont think your alternator would be bad, though. your whole engine and transmission is electronically controlled and runs off of the power generated by the alternator. the battery is primarily there to start the car. without the power generated form the alternator, all of these things start drawing power from the battery. and since the battery cant recharge itself, it will eventually die, and so will your car. so, my guess is your battery just went bad, and your charging system is good. have it checked just to be on the safe side though.

Sounds like your alternator is letting go, because your battery is not charging, and this would mean that you could probably just make it home before the juice runs out. Get your alternator checked out, if your car has 50k, this should be under warranty, otherwise could cost hundreds to replace/repair.
