Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2008 Cadillac CTS won't start. Gave it a jump
and it almost cranked. Do I need better Jumper
Cables. The ones I have are thin and cheap. Plus
I'm trying to jump the car off of a2013 dodge

If the battery is very low, it may not take a charge. Try leaving the battery cables connected to each vehicle, and let the running vehicle try and charge up the battery a bit. The low battery may have a short in it as to not accept a charge. At least make sure you have good battery connections to the battery from the battery cables.
