Sounds like your jumps leads are not good enough / getting a good connection . If cheap , light jump leads that often happens . You may have to charge a battery that has lay for that length time and is completely dead . Then try jumping again if needed . If battery dead , bump starting wont work .

Thank you . Hope that is all that is wrong and replacing / charging the battery gets you on the road again .Hope you and family have a nice , peaceful Christmas , enjoy the day .

Forgot to add , if battery has any weak / dud cells it wont hold a charge no matter how long it is charged .
