if a battery is bad it wont hold a charge no matter what though right? everything inside the car works lights the seats mirrors heat all that shit the head lights work to just no enough power to crank the engine untill i get a jump. would a new battery solve it?

If the lights shine bright, headlights, power seat doesn't "stutter", you may have a bad connection going to the starter, I would start there..
