Two quick fixes come to mind, 1, remove and cleane your battery post and terminals with a good wire brush, re connect and make sure they are very tight, (cant be turned by hand), brush can be bought at a auto supply store, cheap! #2 while you are at the supply store have them do a load test on your battery, most supply stores have this service, call ahead. im quit sure its one of the two! batterys in my option are not reliable after 3 yrs max. good luck, hoped this does it for u.
