Jump start the car, then check the battery voltage using a meter. If the voltage is below 13.5, you probably have an alternator or other charging problem. You might need to step on the accellerator a little to bring the charging voltage up. If you don't have a marginal alternator voltage, you might have a loose connection somewhere between the battery and the accessory connection on your fuse block.
