Get out a volt meter, With the car not started check the battery you should be getting round 12volts.
Now turn the engine and check the terminals again you should be seeing about 13-14 volts. If its high it means the regulator on the Alternater has gone and it wont charge the battery because to much going to it and that would cause other eletrical issues, and if its low your looking round the same problem with the Alt.
Also check the serpenteine*sp is not to worn as it wouldnt be turning the pulleys as good and would cause issues as things can't work correctly.

Check to make sure that there's power from the alternator to the battery on the charge-back wire. If nothing's there, then your alternator is junk and you'll have to replace it again.

SOURCE: Just put a new battery
the alternator probably isn't putting out as much as it should be... did the old battery go dead or......
I have the same kind of car and these things are about as simple as it gets on this car.

Yes, most likely. I noticed this with my F150, but it was only doing it when the engine was higher than idle. Take off (after removing battery connector) and have it tested. Most stores do it for free. If your nearest store charges, so somewhere else because they are going to be too expensive.

Under the hood is a fuse panel. On the left side of the panel there is a door that lifts up. Under that is a 175 amp fuse. You can check it with an ohm meter or just replace it.
