Q: Q: won't crank

asked by on

When I run the car for a while and I shut it off it won't crank back up. At first I thought of the battery but when it won't crank the radio and everything works when it gets jumped it will crank. My husband took it and had it put on a computer the battery, starter and alternator all came back fine. It has broken down 3 times in the last month

My car has an automatic transmission.
