Have you battery checked. The lights will not take much electricity to work, but the starter takes a lot of amps. If you battery is low or has one or more bad cells, it will not turn the motor over. Jumping it will do it because your adding enough electricity power to engage the starter. Also make sure your alternator is charging enough, an the correct charge is gett9ng to the battery.
