Everything turned on as normal. Then hooked up cables to car and tried the ignition and now there’s only dome lights, door ding. No dash lights no gauges no radio. Headlights still come on. But no crank at all now. Today we hooked up cables and had spark when connecting but after an hour still nothing. No change. This is third time battery went dead but first time it hasn’t fired right up with jumpers.

Good evening,

Sounds like you need a new battery. The jumper will not work if your battery is shorted. It will drag down the jumper battery.

I would replace the battery since you have had several issues with it already.
