It won't start. There is corrosion on the terminals maybe. Take it to a parts store and they can test it.

if your cranking it but it wont start, your lights dim, plus if you turn your key towards you to run off of the battery, the gauge will let you know how much juice you have left.

When you see the Energizer Bunny dead in your driveway. Actually, Wal-Mart will test your battery for free. So will Auto Zone.

When you jump-start it and it won't work..but it could be your starter/ignition switch. Take it to AutoZone or somewhere that offers a free bench test (many places do.) Search your glove compartment/look on the top of the battery for the date it's warranted to...you might be able to have it replaced for free. AutoZone will take your old battery and give you a discount on your replacement.

When you stick the key in the ignition, turn it, and get absolutely no result. Therefore your battery is dead. Also they have experation dates on them if you want to check that out.
