Question about 2001 Dodge Intrepid
Tried to jump start the vehicle. It started as soon as I hooked up the cables. As soon as I take them off it dies. No lights nothing. Is it just the battery?
You're alternator is dead. Once started the alternator should generate enough power by itself to keep the engine running.

Connect a volt meter to the - and + posts on the battery must be around 12 volts if not charge or replace battery. If ok connect the meter to the battery cable terminals should be 12 volts, if not remove cables, clean the battery posts and cable terminals till shiny clean and refit, if voltage ok check for faulty fuses or circuit breaker . start engine switch on head lights ,battery voltage should be around 14 volts if not alternator or regulator faulty.

The battery light came on while I was driving, when I got home and shut the car off, I turned it back on and it was completely dead. No clicking when it tried to turn over, no power at all. Waiting about 10 minutes and then the car started again. This has happened twice.
