The battery should be charged to full capacity. Then check the charging system to see if the alternator is charging when the engine is running. Battery voltage should be 12.0 - 12.4 when sitting with the engine off. Voltage should rise to 13.0 - 13.5 volts with the engine running. If it does not, you have a changing system problem. If the charging system is working, you may have left the lights on or there is something draining the battery.
