Check the output from the alternator.

Use a DMM (Digital Multimeter _ Voltmeter function) and connect it across the battery terminals with the engine running, (Be careful when you do this as the engine is running!)

The Voltmeter should read between 13.8-14.4V DC. If it is less than 13.8V DC then the alternator is not charging the battery and it will slowly go flat.

If this is the case take your car to an auto electrician to get the alternator checked."
