Have the alternator checked to make sure it's working properly. The battery is just a storage device, that stores electrical energy for NEXT time you want to start the vehicle. If the alternator has failed, your battery won't be getting anything to store, and it will slowly be discharged as all of the stored energy is used. On the other hand, if the battery has failed, it won't be able to store electrical power.
