Engine can be started by jumpstart, when cable's are removed engine shuts down and will not restart without a jumpstart. Battery was tested out of vehicle, tested good, strong. 5 out of 6 compacts have been replaced. Is this a common problem shared before?

Get the battery fully bench charged and load tested and get the alternator charge rate checked as well, start here.
