It sounds like you may be having a problem with the battery. There is also potential for issues with the alternator and charging system. You should have your battery, alternator, the wires involved with the charging system, and the connections of those wires checked and tested. You may also want to check your drive belt, as it is responsible for powering your alternator and supplying the vehicle with power. Good luck!
