it could be the battery bud. try taking the terminals off the battery and then putting them back on to make sure they have good contact. Also its a good call to get the battery tested, its free and will letcha know whats up.

As suggested above, check your battery and connections.
If you have cheap replacement battery terminal ends make sure the cable is clean and tight.
Wiggle everything and look for loose connections, repair as necessary.
