My Dad's car has sat for one year because he died I bought a new battery so I could start it upn occasion because it is not registered to be driven yet The battery is now dead but takes a boost.?

How often do you start it? Newer cars should be started at least once a week to maintain a charge on the battery (the computer drains a little all the time to save its memory). Have the battery fully charged, then try starting it once a week to see if it will work fine then. Good Luck!!!

My 88 year old father bought a used car yesterday and He now realizes he wants to reutrn becaseu he can't afford the insurance can he?

Only if the seller agrees. Legally there is no buyer's remorse or what is commonly called cooling off period. That is a myth. You bought the car so unless the seller agrees to take it back you are legally bound by the deal.
