TOYOTA CELICA HOOD PROBLEM

1995 Toyota Celica • 200,000 miles

The battery is dead. I jump the car of and it purrs like a kitten, but as soon as I shut the hood, it stalls. It seems that as soon as the metal of the hood makes contact with the clasp that locks it in place, the engine stalls. When I run the jumper cords, it starts back up and only stalls when I shut the hood before driving off.

Thats because the alternator is not charging the battery. Have it checked to confirm
