I hooked wife's car up to mine with jumper cables for 30 min or so, charging the battery as best as I could, and with the other car hooked up, it started, with a short squeal(sounds like sticky bendix in starter), but as soon as cables were unhooked it failed to start again, even with the jump box plugged in...

Not sure if bad cell in battery or just severely discharged, or bad cables somewhere between battery and underhood fuse box
