Charging system is probably not able to provide adequate charge, and the battery is weak or has a dead cell. You need to have both alternator and battery checked. Any of the big parts stores can do this free of charge, then take it from there.

Gotta be a short somewhere, I would have the alternator checked out, and look at the wiring to make sure it is not grounding out somewhere, good connections, even look on the way down to the starter at the wiring.
