SOURCE: low battery gauge indicated
Not necessarily,this can also be caused by poor battery cable connections or a bad battery cable or a bad connection to the gauge or just a bad gauge.Check or have them checked first,and then have the alternator output tested,a voltmeter connected at the battery posts should measure 14.5 to 14.8 volts at an idle,any lower than this than the alternator is the problem.

Before buying a new battery ...have your electrical system checked ...usually about 35 to fifty bucks or so ...worthy it ....instead of buying some thing you don't need ....like a battery ,alternator ...good luck
If you still are having problems let me know ...Joe
