Probably a bad battery. Bring it to a parts store for a free check of the charging system and battery. They can tell you what the problem is. Either the battery is bad, or the alternator is not charging.

Have a load test done to your battery. if bad replace it. Next check the output of your altenator. If good check the altenator again by using a volt meter to the battery checking the output of the voltage. If normal output volts are showing (13.5 Volts) invert the probes to the volt meter by place the positive on negative and negative on the positive sides of the battery. If you show any reading the same as before the diode is bad causing the battery to discharge without getting no charge at all. The diode keep voltage running on way. If riuning both ways the altenator is not worth a damn to your battery

Engine starts without warning with no key in the ignition


If the battery is not holding a charge, you need to address this problem first. The life expectancy of an automotive battery is 5yrs. For a battery to not hold a charge, there are numerous reasons. The battery may be bad, the charging system may not be working properly, or there is a draw on the system while the vehicle is not running. All this needs to be checked to isolate the problem with not holding a charge. If the engine starts without the key in the ignition by itself, you may have a starter relay sticking or wiring problem

96 olds cutlass ciera sl wont hold charge with new battery and alternator


Well the charge light means the alternator is not charging the battery.
You would need to get the alternator and circuits tested on the car.
It could be a bad connection somewhere or other wiring problem.

If my vehicle receices a jump start and it won't hold a charge , what is wrong with it ?


Depends.
If the alternator is charging, and the battery will not hold a charge, I would suspect the battery.
If the alternator is not charging the battery, I would look at the fuseable links and connections.

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.
