What voltage does the battery have (before starting)?

What voltage does it have when engine running?

When the other battery is connected what voltage are you getting on your battery?

I think the minimum voltage for a battery to start and run an engine in warm weather is 9v in winter/cold this has to be a higher voltage probably 10-11v.

If you have a battery charger give that a go.

How are you connecting the jump leads?
