Check all your battery connections, at both ends, positive and negatives/grounds, for corrosion and to make sure they are connected tight. Make sure battery is fully charged, then do a voltage check at the battery, first with engine off, should read around 12.5 Volts. Next check voltage at battery, with engine running, should be around 13.5 Volts.
I was a Shade Tree Mechanic, but had to cut down the Shade Tree to make room for the garage. Does this make me a Mechanic now?
