2008 compass won't start

will not turn over when key is turned. no keyless entry on this compass,battery is good ,all dash lights come on. it will start when jumped with a 200 amp battery charger but not on the standard 30 amp charging position.
funny thing is when you turn the engine off the cooling fan on the radiator will run for about 30 seconds
then shut off even with a cold start.the cooling fan has never run on after turning the engine off before,even in the summer.another thing is it will start back up normaly without the 200 amp charger while the ciooling fan is running but will not if you wait till the cooling fan shuts off. any ideas?
