2001 Ford Taurus

Last night my car was running fine, this morning I go to start it and its dead, just a clicking noise, but the lights and radio worked fine, I go back outside to try again after it warms up outside and now nothin works, no lights no radio, still clicking, I got a jump and the car started and turned over after about 10 min, the guy disconnected the cables righ away, and 2 min later my car died again, were the cables not on long enough or is there something else wrong?

Do you

Check alternator and battery as described here, you will need a good battery to test charging system, Fords need a charged battery so alternator will not be damaged! At this point I suspect you need to replace both.
