    How old is the battery? Over a year to two years is the life... try charging it or replacing it.

    Btw, also check the battery connections... if they are corroded... mix some baking soda and water and wash it off the cables and battery, clean it off and let it dry and reconnect them.. little sprits of wd-40 or di-electric grease will keep the corrosion away.
