So my 2005 Dodge Grand caravan won't start
unless it's jumped, it stays running until it's turned

Weak battery.

Either bad battery terminal connection or bad alternator

test your alternator. With the car running, you should have about 14.5 volts at the battery. if not then the alternator is likely bad. also, check your battery connections and have the battery load tested.

Take off the battery when the car is on if it turns off then your vehicle charging system is not working you will possibly need to charge the alternator it will be wise to change the battery and the alternator so it won't happen again in the near future.
