The battery has a shorted cell and needs replacing.

So battery just needs replaced my door light works and stero works. Could it be altanator?? Im not good on cars and little cas at moment. Just trying to double check.

Have the battery tested, also have the alternator tested. Having your door lights or radio working means nothing regarding the condition of the battery. Lights and radio draw very little current.
