Should have the charging system checked, may be a bad alternator. You can have it done at an auto parts store.

If you have a digital multi meter, check at the battery with the engine running, there should be 14 to 14.7 DCV if the alternator is working. Rev the engine up also to see if it holds the proper voltage.
