Make sure your battery is good and you have 12 volts, your alternator may not be charging. I will bring the car to AutoZone and have them do a load test on the battery and have them check the charging system, this will be done for free, saving you money.

In addition to what my friend joemom posted...check all the electrical connections at the battery as well as the starter. A loose or corroded connection can cause these strange electrical symptoms.
