If your needed to jump a supposed fully charged battery then I suspect that the battery is unable to hold a load, a simple test is to make sure the battery is fully charged, then turn on the headlights for 15 minutes, if the light stay on nice and bright then the battery is good, or you could take it in and have it load tested. A lot of parts stores have this capability and it free of charge, plus if your battery is bad your right there to replace it and sometimes they will do that too. HTH

Agree. If the battery is 5 years or older its time for a new one anyway. Slap a new one in and see what happens. If its newer than that go the load test route and check all connections and grounds.
