    Could be the battery or alternator. Have you checked the fan belt around the alternator is still there? I unknowingly ran an old Astra for a good number of miles with a broken belt before it ran out of juice.

    Could be the alternator, sound defo like that, see if you can get a voltmeter on the battery and see what power it gives off.

    right just tried to start my car up this morning and started first time a bit sloppy mind but it did start. if it was dead last night surely it cant be the battery if it started this morning?

    As im always saying, get the simple things tested first like battery and alternator, then start looking for peoples ideas once you've checked the basics
