RENAULT CLIO BATTERY PROBLEM

2003 Renault Clio • 36,000 miles

I have a starting problem with a Renault Clion Authentique 1.1. I installed a new battery but it seemed to lose power over the last three months. Believing it faulty I bought a new battery yesterday but when I tried to start the car it just clicked once. I can bump it very easily but when driving with the new battery the battery warning light is coming on and ghoing off at times.

I am guessing that the alternator might be playing up, although the warning light was not apparent with the old battery, but there must be something wrong with the ignition system to prevent the car from starting at all, the alternator aside.

Any assistance in basic guidance would be appreciated.
