Sounds like a bad alternator.

I would first assume that the battery may be dead. If that is not it, make sure the battery cables are nice and tight. If that still doesn't work, I would check the starter and the fuel.

It could be the alternator or igniter, not the starter because you would just hear clicks. If it turns and doesn't start then it's the igniter, if it starts with a new battery then it's the alternator.

Have some jump your car. If it starts, let it sit for like 15-20 min.Remove the battery cable while the car is still running. If the car dies right away, you need a new alternator. if the car continue to run for a while, you need a new battery.

Although it may be your alternator be sure to check your positive and negative battery connection,the positive can be prone to corroding to the point of no connection,if it is green put baking soda and water on it then make sure it is still connected. this wire being corroded can also block the return charge from the alternater .just remember crusty green is bad
