Do this self test and youll get an idea where your at, can you jumpstart the car?? if you can do so. then remove either cable from the car battery its self, if it shuts off you have a bad alternator, if it doesnt then theres a bad/losse cable somewhere between your battery/starter and or losse ground from battery to to enigine block or chassis. i would start with check the alternator, then creep under or above and check for loose cables ar starter, grab the cables by hand and move them around. send me a feedback or let me know if you need more help.

First question is - is the check engine light on ?
If so you need to start with the trouble codes in the computer.
