When the vehicle quits running, do you notice any warning lights (check engine, low volts, etc) or dim gauge lights, anything else out of the ordinary beforhand?
Does the vehicle not crank over at all before jumped?

There is a 200 amp fuse or fusible link, located in the positive wire running between the alternator and starter. Please have your mechanic check this to see if its blown, or shows signs of corrosion. Let me know how things turn out, and if you need any further help just ask! : )
