    If you haven't had a load test done on your charging system, With a Voltmeter and engine running set meter to DC volts and read across the battery terminals. It should read 13.5-14.5 volts. If below this then suspect your alternator, if OK then I would assume battery is not holding a charge, thus needs replaced. Play close attention to your Battery terminal connections to be sure clean and tight.
