The car will only turn on if I jump it- I have taken the starter, the alternator, and battery to autozone to test if they work. They tested the 3 items and all passed.I checked the wires that go to the starter, atlternator and backery and all appears to be in good condition. When turning to turn the car on it doesnt do anything (no creaking) but if I jump it using jumper cables with another car it turns on ok, but once I turn car off and leave it off for a while it wront turn back on unless I jump it again.I have even checked the fuse box and all is ok. Can is wrong with my car?

If battery tested OK
suspect and check battery terminals for corrosion and pay a close attention to the positive terminals
remove inspect replace if needed and tighten
