    might be

    Is she still trying to start her exp witht he jumpers on the Jeep?
    If so remove them and restart.
    There is a possibilty that if the cables were but on in reverse that is has killed your battery.
    You can have the battery tested free at most DIY auto parts places.
    You might want to see about resetting the theft system, although i am sure this has nothing to do with it.
    Start simple check the battery terminals for clean tight fit.

    I worked with a fellow mechanic and his battery went dead. I trusted him to hook up the cables right (After all we are both ASE mechanics) well he hooked the cables in reverse. He got his car started and we were both on our way till the next morning. We both left our houses and batteries were junk. The reversing of the polarity of the batter killed both batteries.

    My .02 cents

    Your girls explorer battery was low to begin with, just able to start her truck.
    Put the load of the cousions Jeep in the picture and your girls battery is now a gonner.

    Easy fix - Replace both batteries.

    When you try to jumpstart another car, NEVER start the "donor" car in the first 3 minutes. Trying to charge a dead battery (in the other car) plus top-off the "good" battery that just started the engine will kill the alternator.
    Let the "good" battery charge the "empty" one for some 3 minutes before starting the engine/alternator on the "good" car.
