Di dyou check to make sure nothing is on like the glove box light or trunk light. Without a multimeter you're guessing but is the battery light on when the car is running? IOf not then it may be a battery. This has to be a replacement battery in the car now anyway.

test it with a voltmeter, with the engine running it should have 14+ volts otherwise the alternator is bad. and your battery 12.6 atleast with the car off once it is fully charged
