If your car will not start absolutely nothing when you turn the key even after putting in a new battery so why will it start if you jump the car?

check your battery cables and you ground. You may want to check your alternator, if the car only starts when jumped started. IMprovement to answer: If the new battery doesn't start the car, obviously it's not the alternator causing the car not to start... Check the starter relay under the hood if it is equipped and if that works then check the starter solenoid located beside the starter motor. If that's working then you can be pretty sure it's the starter motor causing your problem - maybe worn brushes or excess resistance in the circuit.

In most cases a new battery will be charged enough to start the vehicle

the only way to start a car when the remote key is dead is to start it by putting the key into the ignition.

Out of gas versus dead batteryRunning out of gas in and of itself would have absolutely nothing to do with a dead battery.On the other hand, IF someone, not realizing that the gas tank was empty, were to continuously crank, and crank, and crank the engine erroneously thinking they could get the engine to start, then it is for certain that they will drain the charge from the battery and thus "kill" the battery.It's not the being "out of gas" that kills the battery, but the vehicle operator that kills a battery.

There is absolutely nothing you can do to make your legs longer. Better start liking the ones you have.
