Hello, my name is***** you for the question. Most of the time this is due to an issue with the battery or the connection at the battery. I would remove the cables and clean them and reattach them. If the problem continues then you need to tes tthe battery either with a voltage meter or a load tester. Did you plan on fixing this yourself?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am not that mechanically inclined, how hard would it be to replace that battery?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Would it take more than just a ratchet set and a screw driver?
Expert:  Fixitman replied 1 year ago.

That really is all that you should need as long as you have deep sockets. I would havde it load tested by the parts store first.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What do mean load testing?
Expert:  Fixitman replied 1 year ago.

A load test is what a part store does to check the health of the battery,
