You could either jump it or just plug it. For manual transmission cars you can get a push, place the gear into 1st or 2nd, press clutch and when on proper speed, release clutch and the engine could start up. For automatic cars, you need to connect the battery to another battery source to jump it. This is if the problem is with the car battery.

It sounds like the battery only has enough of a charge to run the ignition and the alternator is not contributing anything so as soon as you put additional load on it, the engine dies from lack of power for the ignition coil. If you have a volt meter, check the battery voltage BEFORE you start the engine. If it'needs a jump-start again do so and start the engine. Then remove the jumper cables and test the voltage level in the battery with the engine RPM at around 1000. With the engine running it should be somewhere near 13.5 Volts. If it's anything less than 12 V, you have a problem with the alternator.

AFTER ENGINE DIES, TRY TO SEE IF YOU ARE GETTING SPARK TO A SINGLE PLUG. IF NOT THEN IGNITION CONTROL MODULE IS BAD. MODULE IS LOCATED ON BOTTOM LEFT SIDE OF DISRIBUTOR FRONT OF ENGINE. JUST HAD THIS PROBLEM. First, find out what is failing. After it dies, check to see if you can re-start it with ether. spray a little starting fluid down the throttle body while an assistant attempts to start the engine. If it starts then dies again while spraying starting fluid, you have a problem with the fuel delivery. If not, it's a problem with the ignition. Figure out that part then let's see where it goes from there.
