No. You have a Bad Connection with the Battery and the Battery Cables. Remove the Battery Cables, Get a Can of Coca Cola and pour onto the Ends of the Wires that Connect to the Battery. They should Fizzle like Hydrogen Peroxide. This will eat away the Corrossion on them. Replace the Battery Terminals and Tighten. Also, Check the Tension on your Belt. If it is even a Little loose it will not allow the Alternator to Recharge The Battery while Driving.
