Have you or a mechanic check the distributor cap inside for any wetness or dampness, checking to see if the moisture has harmed the internal components. If you can still start the car, bring it to a parts store where they can do a free check of the battery and charging system (alternator).

I'd suspect that your battery earth/negative lead has a poor connection to the car bodywork. The second problem could be that your alternator is bad and not charging your battery, in this case you will need to replace your alternator. Since you said it starts with jumper cables, it is most likely a bad battery.
In other words, all the jumping power is diverted to the short circuit inside the battery. When there isn’t enough charge to turn the starter motor on, you left with only two options: Have you or a mechanic check the inside of the distributor cap for any wetness or dampness,checking to see if the moisture has harmed the internal components.
That will determine if it is still good or not. Replaced the battery and the +connection, car started fine for a couple days. This can help you diagnose why you have a new battery but car won’t start without a jump.
I got a new battery. I can let the vehicle run for hours but once i turn it off it will not turn back on. I have a new battery that is showing 13.5volts via ecmlink and autozone determined was good.

When you turn the key you would hear the clicks of a dead battery but you dont hear it it. This morning it would not start on its own, just clicking again. If the car battery in the dead vehicle failed due to an internal short or bad cell, it creates such a huge drain on the jumping vehicle, that it can’t start your engine.
If they are damaged or corroded badly, they can prevent proper amperage draw for the starter. The car won’t start, but the dash lights are on. So even after a jump, your car won't start because the starter itself is malfunctioning.
Won't take charge and only starts after jump. Your engine is running on battery, the jumping would be adding some little power to it, enough to crank once, but after the engine is running, no power is being supplied to it by the alternator, and in the contrary, the engine is sucking the little power. Craftsman riding mower only starts with a jump from a car battery [ 2 answers ] hello, we've got a craftsman rider (~15hp) and it won't start on it's own, but it will start with the help of a car battery.

So i was thinking that the starter motor has gone but that wouldn't explain why it cut out on me and died. Hard starting can have many root causes, everything from simple tune up (spark plugs, injection cleaning, air filter) to a more complex sensor issue (bad crank sensor, dirty mass airflow sensor, etc). If your car’s problem of having a new battery but car won’t start without a jump only occurs in certain weather conditions, this could be due to excess dampness inside the vehicle.
