first thing I would check is the connections to the battery make shure they are clean if it is a lead type connection you can use a pocket knife to scrape the corrosion from the connector if it is a copper one use sand paper or a wire brush make shure thay are tight when you hook them back up ...if that does not solve the problem check the connection at the starter and clean it if nessesary

Hey mate... If u find tht the dash's playin up as well, then the trouble must be in the circuit b4 the batteries.... So, once u have made sure the contacts n stuff r nice n clean, i'd suggest, please get the alternator checked :)
