Question 2008 jeep srt8 battery problems

I have a 2008 Jeep srt8 and today this morning it turn on ok but after leaving it parked for a couple of hours I tried to turn it on and it wouldn't turn on and it also got lock from the shifter on the control panel it will appear on the system that to check my gauges and that the transmission got over heated so I just jump started the Jeep with another car and it turn on easily so I drove around and when I parked it again and turn it off and turn it back on it turn on easily so I waited about 20 minutes and tried it again and it didn't give me no problems so I turn it off again and waited about 2 hours came back and the same thing happen it wouldn't start. Any idea of what could it be ill really appreciated
