its possible the alternator is not putting out enough amps to charge the battery, but is able to keep the car running while. u will need to test the alternator for that. it is also possible that there is a draw over night(something staying on). to test that u can disconnect the battery overnight and reconnect in the morning and see if it starts. if it does it would indicate a draw
