when it turns on certain things stop working ( driver
tail light, interior lights , dash board lights, head

be ?

If the battery was dead, your next step is to replace it. Your symptoms might go away. I can't see how the lights won't come on after a jump start, unless you hooked them up wrong at some point? I would say it was from a shorted cell in the battery and it's too low for the systems to work on the car.
