Okay so I've had this car since Tuesday (12/02/03) and it has been running great till I tried to install my car system. I have the cd player installed so far...and it's been working fine, but when I tried to leave a friend's house earlier around 8:00 pm the car would not start. I had to get some of my friends to jump my ass off. Every time I turn off the car I need a new jump...battery or alternator?

Okay first get it started and take it to your local autozone, pepboys etc. have them check the charging system and battery.. its free.
Then if the battery is okay and the charging system is fine then somethings pulling amps. Check your wiring for the stereo...make sure you didnt mix up the 12v and Ignition On Power.
Good luck

It ended up being the battery. I checked the alternator by jumping my car and taking the negative off...the car still stayed on so I figured it was the battery and just bought one. Thanks for the feedback though.

Regards,
Paul

PS, I just got the car painted so I should be posting some pics real soon.
