My battery died yesterday. I was finally able to get it to start, but now everytime I shift the car it dies. What is causing this? Do I just need a new battery?

Do you
have the same problem?

Have batt and alt tested. Recent repairs? Last tune? Does car start right back up? Engine, miss? Down on power?

Recent repairs that I have had done are front hub bearings replace about 2 weeks ago, and driver side window motor replaced. Its been a while since last tune up, I was gonna take it in in a couple weeks. When I jump the car it takes a minute, but then starts right up.
