Take your alternator out and have it tested, that could very well be your problem. If it is good then you might have a short somewhere. My best bet is that your alternator is starting to crap out on you, mine just went out last week and cost me almost $200... The alt was not charging my batt and the car was starting to sputter, like if you were about to run out of gas but luckly I was close to home and made it back but when i tried to roll up my window, nothing happened. My batt was drained and the alt was making just enough juice to bairly keep the car running. I turned it off and tried to start it back up and nothing happened, completely dead. So yeah, get your alternator tested, depending on the age of your batt, you might want to replace that too. Good luck!
