1997 Nisan Altima no start

1997 Nissan Altima

We bought a used car standard trans 3 months ago and its been running fine. No problems what so ever. Then tonight we went out to the store (3 mins from house) and now it wont start. We tried pushing the clutch in and out several times and nothing. We were able to jump it and the gears worked great on the way home. The trans or clutch has never shown signs of slipping or anything. What could cause this?

Nothing at all wrong with your clutch. The problem is with the battery. Either something was left on and ran the battery down or the battery has gotten old and weak. Replacing the battery would, in most cases, fix the problem.
