The Battery is dead... same thing happend to me... the only thing keeping your car going is the Alternator trying to charge everything... my car did that, ran every bit of 5 mins then shut down cause the battery barely could handle it, then jumped it again and kept foot on gas and it stayed running, turn car off then car died and wouldn't start again unless i jumped it.
