Charge the battery, turn everything electric off (drive during the day) and it'll probably go half an hour +

trust me. when i had this freaking vectra do the same thing, we fully charged the battery with NRMA, waited for about 30 minutes and charged it fully, started it up. drove it out the driveway, got to the first set of lights 100m away and it started to play up. got it towed to work, well i quit the next day and made them pick the car up

Charge the battery. Start the car then measure the voltage. If it's less than 13volts then your alternator is stuffed. Go to a wrecker and buy another one. Fit it and try again. Take off your skirt and stop being a girl

Agreed with mikey, a flat battery takes a good 12hrs to charge.
But all cars are different. Some may run when the battery is down at 5v others will switch the ecu off at 10v. In my old laser when the alternator died, it barely started at movie world and I made it all the way to my auto elecs 45 mins away at night with the lights on.

I'll be charging it up this arvo so she will have a good 12 hours + by the time I pick her up tomorrow.

Went in today and jump started the car. I found there was ZERO water in the battery. What a shocker that is. If I find the owner.......

Filled her up, jump started the car and it ran fine. The plan is to do that tomorrow as I didn't have the tools to take the battery out today. What are the chances the lack of water caused my problems? Also, could it be the solenoid?

battery being empty is not related.

would not surprise me if the battery is on the way out though, and in theory the extra load of a dying battery cold have taken the Alt...but really the Alt should be able to deal with just about anything short of a short circuit.
