Sounds to me like you drained your donor battery to the point where you can't jumpstart your car anymore. If you jump a car and it runs for a little bit but then dies that means your alternator is toast. If it was a bad ground, you would see sparks or a fire... Your battery only starts the car, once it is running your alternator supplies the electrical system and charges your battery back up. If you need more in depth help in replacing the alternator go to www.contour.org and get on the forums.

The battery needs replacement. Also , the starter could have frozen up on your car. take off the starter, then remove from the car. get some jumper cables and connect from a good battery. Connect the negative cable to the housing as ground. then carefully hit the hot wire bolt of the starter with the positive cable. If the starter is OK, the starter should spin freely and kick up. Be careful when doing this. Also , be sure you mark the wiring so the starter can be replaced exactly as it came off. if it does not turn or turns slow and sluggish, the starter is your problem. replace with a good starter.

check thoroughly the battery cables..remove and clean/tighten ground especially...i'm talking about the other end of the cables especially,as well as at battery.....charge battery out of car fully and then retry ..with jump assist if necessary..then you can use lighted current probe to determine parasitic electrical draw and health of powers/grounds after getting it started to find cause

Have you checked to see if the starter itself was good? Could also be a loose or dirty battery cable at either ends. Ignition fuse under the hood. Hope this helps. Best wishes to you.
