I would think that your most cost-effective option is to buy a battery charger (they're around 15-20), and if the battery isn't a sealed one, some deionised water and a hygrometer - this should rush you around 25 all-in. you can then ensure your battery is at its best once charged up, and if the problem is cured - voila! If it isn't, then you know to investigate further. I had a problem with a non-sealed battery losing its charge - turns out there was a lack of water in the cells - topping it up & charging it has cured it.

This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
