could be. you should have around 12.5 volts with the car off and around 14.5 volts running. if you dont have enough juice to start it. slow charge it then check voltage.

yeah that does suck man. just check your alternator and battery for voltage. then you should be able to find the problem. also check you battery cables and grounds.
