Ok, so I got the battery replaced, because the jump start worked, but now the alternator isn't apparently, it's pulling from the new battery. Question is, boyfriend is a mechanic but lives 185 miles away. Should I get the alternator fixed before I make the drive or replace it and spend a crap load of money before I go. What do ya'll think? Car is currently running, but apparently just on battery power, it registered at 12.9 amps off and on with headlights on and AC on. Alt registered at low output <30 amp when they double checked, they said, alternator wasn't registering at all on voltage, just the new battery.
