Thank you for writing in. It souds like you have an electrical problem that could be stemming from a weak battery. If the vehicle is not starting, it is likely the battery has failed or that the alternator is not charging the battery when it is running. If the vehicle is starting, there is likely an seperate electrical issue that may also be stemming from a weak alternator. Only further inspection will tell. Good luck!
