In our '89 100, the battery died soooo dead that jump starts were
ineffective, not even a solenoid click--until I did a partial
recharge of the battery. After that, a jump-start worked easily. Try
a little recharging, but connect your charger directly to the battery
terminals and give it some hours before trying to jump-start.
