So I was driving down the road when i noticed my headlights dim and my charge light came on. I kept going hoping I would make it to my friend's house. About a mile later, my RPMs started going everywhere and it cut out on me. When i tried to start it again, my battery was dead. A kind man came along and we tried to jump it. It would turn over fine but it wouldn't start. I had it towed home and charged the battery. It turned over a couple of times but wouldn't start. After a few tries it just went click-click-click-click and then nothing. I still haven't got it to start and I was told it was my possibly my ignition coil and a bad alternator. Iknow I need a new battery, but if it was just the battery, wouldn't it start if I tried to jump it? Any help is appreciated.

more then likely it was your alternator that went bad...then drained your battery. but first things first, take off your alternator and get it checked for free, just to be sure that's the source of the problem.
