Default starting problems

About 8 hours after shutting off my car (every morning when i wake up) my car acts as if the battery is dead. My lights are dim and when i turn my key in the ignition it clicks a lot, during this time my guages jump on and off. I jump my car and run it for ten minutes, and then its fine for the day. The next morning its the same. Any suggestions?

How old is the Bat?
Some auto parts stores check them for free.

definately sounds like a battery it runs all day because the alternator is charging the battery, but the battery wont charge. its hurting your alternator when you do this.

If that is the orginial battery that came with the car (I doubt it) it is way overdue for a change.
