Try connecting your charger to a battery that you know is good to make sure that the charger is working. If it is, you probably have a shorted cell in your battery.

This iz embarasking. I called AAA to tow the car to the local dealer. He jumped and started it straight off. I'm still going to have the dealer check it out. Since I bought the car used there was no owners manual. Why do people throw out owners manuals? Any way, after doing a search I found an online manual that calls you to use a special grounding post near the firewall.

You can buy an actual owners manual at helminc.com for $35.

I'm glad that you got the problem solved, and that you let us know what it was.

Why ask for help then ignore suggestions?

So you didn't bother to try and jumpstart the car?
