Most probably battery. Do you have a voltmeter handy? Probe the terminals and see what voltage you get. Anything less than 12.3V and 5 years old and it's time for a new one.

The non-clamping end of the black 1/0 battery cable as it attaches to the frame/chassis is a trouble point....this connection to the chassis (so that the computer will work) as well as the additional 1/0 cable to the motor (usually around the alternator) need to be able to pump 300 cold-crankin' amps through there too....and get a new battery if yours is older then five as they tend to heat-up the alternator if it's pushin hard to charge a dud battery~
