NEED HELP ASAP

my car has been on the side of the road for 2 days...if i dont get it fired today im gonna give up and tow it...i had a friend of mine switch out all the fuses and he was just putting fuses where ever...something got crossed cause when i first pushed in the clutch the engine fired up....i was like what?...the igintion and starter were crossed...well i fixed it but ever since then the car takes about 3-5 secs to turn over when i turn the key,,,it just chug chug chug then fire....well at the gas station the other nite i turn the key and the starter grinded but no fire....DEAD BATTERY i assumed...well i rolled it down a steep hill and popped it and nothin...did it again (BIG HILL)..and again..then it felt like it had turned over but no lights or anything came on and it died out....not when i turn the key nothing comes on...i let it charge for 15min and it still want even turn the starter on....what could this be!....last time it died it was at the gas station and i got a jump for about 10min and it fired right up..,,,u think this could be a dead battery? im thinking not cause when i connect the jumpers to my babtter and tap the other 2 together it sparks...like it has power but its not getting to the car!

Re: NEED HELP ASAP

sounds like a dead battery cell IMO. you will nedd a new battery if this is the case. i would take the battery to wal-mart and have them test the cells. they can tell you if its good or not. best of luck though. hope this helps

Re: NEED HELP ASAP

yea. i helped out some guy that needed a jump. he could jump it, and run it, but the battery wouldnt hold a charge. we first thought it was the alternator. but then after changing it. the same thing happened. so we checked the battery. and it had a dead cell. so most likely, its the same story
