The battery is weak and needs a complete charge or replacement. Batteries last 3-6 years on avg. I would suggest you get a jump start again and drive right to a local auto parts store. They will inspect and check your battery free of charge. They can also determine if they can charge it back up or you need a replacement. Installation is free. HTH's.

Your battery is to far gone for the alternator to charge. One thing good about the old time generators (pre-1970). They would charge a battery almost completely dead.
