The alternator might be getting weak or a wire might be loose. Hows your temperature when it turns off?

The temperature stays right were its suppose to be it don't over heat or anything

Try getting your alternator checked to see if it charges, or you can do it yourself by turning on your engine and unplugging your power wire off your battery if the car stays on with wire off its fine, but if it turns off your alternator is bad

I will try that tomorrow thank u bro
