Get one of those portable battery chargers and keep it charged. They have a good amperage - that might help.

It helped the first few times. Then it wasnt enough. So i replaced the battery. But still wont start. It sounds like it wants to.

It could be a bad starter or some bad system causing a general power drain.

Does the vehicle when you try to start it cranks normally and just not fire off or does it crank slowly?
