2005 Nissan Maxima won't start Sign In

My 2005 Nissan Maxima wouldn't start but I got a friend to jump me off and it started right up. A couple days later my car was completely dead and a jump wouldn't do anything. I figured it was the battery so I went and got a new one but my cables won't fit the new one because the original battery just had a screw to hook up to. Do they make an adapter for this, or does it definitely sound like my battery is the problem?

If the old terminal ends had a "screw" in it, then its worn out & the cables need to be replaced..

Replace the cables, install the new battery and check the charging system. It sounds like the alternator isn't charging the battery....
