Check the starter relay switch.

Could be any of the following....your battery, battery cables, starter, starter relay. Always check the easy stuff first. Clean the connections at the battery and the starter.

Sounds like the alternator is not recharging the battery.

I have the same problem with my car also and it is a 2012 Chrysler 200, I think it must be a defect in the car. I replaced the battery and it started and worked for about an hour of driving time and now it will only run with the jumper cables hooked up to it.

I had the same problem. Check the jumper posts located by the fuse box. make sure all connections are clean and tight. I found my connection to be a little loose and dirty, after a quick wrenching and cleaning..... All is fixed. For now.
