Did jumping it help at all?

So did this happen before? Is this why it has a new battery?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
no. new battery replaced orig 2002 battery.
Expert:  Neal replied 5 years ago.
Ok, even though it is new it can still be bad, it is not uncommon for a new battery to fail. I would reccomend removing that battery and taking it in to the parts store to be tested and replaced under warranty if it is bad.
