But it will still continue to start, with a jump?
This sounds to me like the OEM ground has come disconnected from the chassis somewhere, if you are jumping the car correctly, by using the positive battery terminal, and a chassis ground. If you are jumping the car by connecting both terminals of the battery, to both terminals of the other car's battery... Then I got nothin', beyond my already attempted fixes.
You can test this theory by connecting a jumper cable from the negative battery post and the chassis, effectively "repairing", "replacing" or "bypassing" (chose your phrase here) the OEM ground wire.
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."
