I suspect the battery is at the end of its life. You can get a superficial charge on a battery but that does not mean it is good. You could have it load tested to know for sure.


I also suspect your alternator.

Bran new battery


Make sure the connections are clean and tight. If the problem continues I would still test the battery.
