I own a 1968 VW Karmann Ghia with the 1500 cc air-cooled stock engine.The car will not start, but must be jump startaed. I had the battery checked out; it appears to be okay. I think the generator is not charging . Howc do I find out whether it is the generator or some other problem?

Is it completely dead no power?
Batteery is completely dead. I can jumpstart the car, drive 10 miles and still have a dead battery when I shut the engine down.
Ok it honestly sounds like the battery has dead cells which will not allow it to charge or hold a charge.The first step is to replace the battery with a new fully charged battery.If there is still an issue we will go from there but thats the first step.
