Default Prius only starting with Jump.

I have a 2007 Prius that can only be started by "jumping" from the front terminals. I have checked the 12 volt battery and it is okay. I connect it to another non-started car via cables to the front terminals and it starts and I can drive it until shutting it off. I have driven it for 15 minutes and then try to restart it after shutting it off and it is completely dead. The jump start procedure will not work with the rear terminals just the front. It seems like the the connection from the rear 12 volt battery and the front starting electronics is gone. How can this be checked and corrected?
Very Confused...
