How do you know the battery is good? Did you have it tested out of the car? When you install the jumper cables did you check the connections to the battery? Do you have a voltmeter to check a few voltages in the junction blocks?

the battery is still under warrenty. When I did the connection I checked the panel, horn etc to see if I could see any sign of electrical life. Everything is dead overnight.

At any time was the vehicle jumped backwards even for a split second? Do you have a voltmeter to check the voltage at the battery or the terminals?

I purchased a voltmeter. I could not get a reading. I prayed and looked for info from ask.com on how to remove a battery. So I have it out of the car. I am taking it back tomorrow and getting a new one. Thank you for your help.

You are welcome IT is not unusual to see new batteries fail let me know how it goes.
