Sounds like your battery is losing it's charge. Could be the battery's failing or the alternator is not putting out well enough to keep the battery charged. I'd guess the battery's failing. Is the alternator light on when the engine's running? If so, the alternator's not working. Get the charging system and battery checked out.
