If you had to jump start it already, unless you put a charger on it,the battery is weak. Take the battery to your local auto parts store for them to test it. I suspect you will need a new one. If it's only 18 months old, you might get a free replacement if you take it back to the original place of purchase, because most are 100% warranted in the first 2 years.
