Why does the car start when given a jump and then die as soon as the cables are removed?

it could be the alternator not putting out any juice. the alt could b to blame but the regulator is more likely if it's an internal regulator there not that hard to change

Jump starting a Pontiac include jumper cables and another vehicle with a battery. A person will need to put jumper cables on each car battery to jump start it.

Probably the alternator is bad. Once the jumper cables are removed, there is no source for ignition if the alternator is bad. Have it tested and replaced if necessary.
