Have you checked if your terminals are secured tightly onto the battery posts and your earth lead onto the chassis as well? If the battery is old, it probably is better you invest in a new one if that is the cause of your problem. Does your car have a main fuse tat turns everything off if it blows?

If you change your battery, you will need to make sure that you don't have a failed alternator that has caused your old battery to drain; do I need to mention the alternator belt?

Good luck.

P.S. Check prices before buying because they differ greatly and mostly have a similar lifespan.
