1- defenitley check battery for 12 volts

2- check alternator for charging 14 volts with all loads on like a/c headlights etc...

3- have the diagnostic scan done and retrieve fault codes ,if you replaced battery and charging system works and problem stays and post them back here

and we can go further if need be .
