    I have gotten excellent advice here before. So here I go again!

    I drove the car to the store. Everything working perfectly. I get back
    in it and the door beep slowly died and now the car won't start. It
    won't turn over, no indicator lights, no beeps. Totally dead.

    A kind stranger offered to jump it and it started right up. Drove home
    (thank god) and once turned off, it won't start again.

    I searched around under the hood and noticed one of the spark plug
    wires (the one with a gold dot on it) was loose. I pulled it out and
    the metal shield inside it fell off. I put that back on, but still
    nothing. It will always start with a jump though.

    I'm sure this is an easy one. Any advice?

    Thanks in advance. If I figure it out first, I'll post a follow up.

    If your terminals are clean then the battery may have an internal short.
    Instant death is the result.

    Have you checked your ground? If it's not properly grounded, it wont
    start and nothing will work. You might try taking it to your local
    parts store and they can tell you if your battery is shot or not.
