Unhappy 2002 Ford Explorer wont start/ respond at all!!!

Backstory: 2002 ford explorer with 88,000 miles on it. Old battery died in August, replaced with brand new battery two days later. no problems, had car inspected by dealership and recieved all clear. Traveled over 1,200 miles to school in Pennsylvania with no problems at all.
Problem: one week ago the truck would not start. Lights came on, but no engine action or response, was able to jump start the truck, and it ran smoothly. Two days later the same thing happens. Truck gets jump started again, and I went back made sure to run the car longer to make sure battery charged. Attempted to start it several minutes after turning it off that day and it started fine. Tried to start truck again the next day and it would not respond at all, no lights, and no noise whatsoever. I have to wait a week for money to take it to a mechanic. I feel bad just letting it sit there without knowing what could be wrong. Very confused right now and scared of what might be wrong with it.... plz help

Well I think you should maybe look at battery cables that may have corrosion on them, preventing a proper flow of electricity to the starter. If you were able to boost the truck to start it could be connections. Try to start there.

Keep in mind that cables can corrode from the inside. So, they may look fine, but be faulty. Next time you have the no start issue, have someone jiggle the cables while you try and start it. It could also be a bad solenoid.
