try jumping it with a another car if it starts up put a battery gauge on it to make sure it's putting out 14 amps

Sounds like you have a bad battery that is overloading the charger or your charger is bad. Most likely you need a new battery. Once you get the car running make sure the alternator is working too.

Yeah, sounds like the battery cells are dead. If the battery is fairly new or it worked with no hesitation the day before, then your alternator may have gone. Also, if the alternators voltage regulator went out, then it may have applied too much voltage to the battery, killing it.

Once you have your battery checked or replaced. Get a standard digital multi meter from walmart or the like, costs like 10 bucks (very useful to have), and put the red lead on the positive battery terminal, and the black lead on the negative terminal. Start the car, you should be reading around 14 volts DC. This is the charge voltage to the battery from the alternator. If its too low, the battery won't charge, too high and it will effectively kill the battery.

may not be charging because of corroded cables .you need to buy at least a $25 multi meter . your going to need one if you plan on doing any elec. work . meter will tell you volts in battery . if your battery has clamps check volts at the center of the posts . check at the clamp . thats post to post and than clamp to clamp .should be 12.5 to13.5 . than again you could just clean the cables and try to charge again
