I have to agree with everyone that it sounds like the battery, however before you do it would be worth checking the earth cable. Make sure it is intact/fitted/not corroded. On a 03 it should be fine but I would hate for you to buy a battery for no reason.

I would also like to add be wary of breakdown checks. My missus got swindled for a new battery after she left her lights on. They jump started it and did a test while the battery was still flat and just started charging, saying one of the cells had gone. If the battery is flat and just started charging of course the test will say there is a problem.

Let us know how you get on?
