My 2017 doing the same thing but it want start unless I get a jump. At first I will get the battery light, engine light and the two swirl road. Now I get the engine light and the stability light.
Your engine light is on solid or blinking/flashing?

If you always need a jump to start the car and it doesn't die again while driving, the charging system is likely ok. It's probably just the battery in need of replacement. At 4-5 years it is due. I would get a code scan to verify codes while you have them. Depending on the outcome plan to at least change the battery. Engine light on solid is a problem that needs attention but not an emergency like the flashing light described by the initial creator of this discussion.
