He mentions a 2008. I'd chalk it up to a dying battery.
Especially if you make lots of small trips.
Buy a new one, install it, register it to the car and be done with it.

went today and checked the battery and there's no problem with it! so there's no need for changing it

Not sure that's good news. I mean why did it do that? I would be more concerned that point...

Can you kindly load test the battery? You may be able to recharge it, but you need to see how it handles a load.

buy a solar powered battery maintainer. it keeps the battery fully charged when car is parked for extended periods.
