Either your battery is not accepting a charge and it is on the brink of complete failure or you have a loose or corroded connection in the power path from the battery. Check the battery's voltage level at rest. It should be about 12-14 volts. If it is, you are losing the power downstream from the battery. If it does not measure 12-14V then it is either too week or the alternator is not charging it properly.
