gooooooooooood chance its the alternator. the battery is used to start the vehicle. once the vehicle is started...the battery goes back to sleep & the the runs mainly off the alternator. if ur alternator is bad...it'll just give out all of the sudden. but if the battery is bad...u can run for 1,000,000 miles on a bad battery as long as its started. if the battery is bad or is faulty...it could drain the alternator. once ur alternator is bad...its bad. u can go to a checker auto parts now known as O'Reilly auto parts or auto zone & have ur alternator tested for free. ur alternator is the brain & what keps ur car goin. the battery pumps the lifeblood or juice to that brain. if it cuts off all of the sudden...just like that...im guessin its the alternator. im 90% sure.

if u have a bad battery......dont keep jump starting it. that'll drain & fry the alternator. im guessin ur battery is shot too. they both work hand in hand like conjoined twins.
