The battery is 2.5 years old, I think it's still good.

How much longer do i have to leave them connected? Also i thought I was jump starting the car by connecting the battery to another car's battery.

It can be a 'good' battery that's just lost its juice...from too many short drives and not enough long ones.

Make sure the starter cable is tightened (under + terminal).

You do jump start the way you said...though our hood terminals put power closer to the starter.

Leave the cars hooked up a few mins. at least.
