Question about 2006 Dodge Stratus
Well, while the engine is running (especially above idle), the alternator should put out enough power to keep everything running even without the battery. It's possible you have a bad connection somewhere, especially between the alternator and battery.
I would start by removing the battery cables (negative first) and clean the posts and cable clamps. Make sure the battery is full of water (if the caps are removable), be careful and wear eye protection etc. Connect the positive cable first, negative last.
If the battery is 3+ years old, it might be getting time to replace anyway, but I don't think that is your problem.
