I would test your alternator and then your battery. You can do this without paying the price for a new one.

Your ecu has a fault code in it that the battery is causing.. if you start the car with a battery that has a charge of less than 7 volts on it it sends a fault code to the ECU that shuts down a whole bunch of sensors for protection therefore the car may not start or run like crap if it does start. have it checked out then have the codes taken out of your ecu
