Either your car battery is 12 yrs old (not likely) or its a second battery. Good batteries shouldn't discharge if ignition is in ACCessory position unless headlights are on. Everything but the EFI system is powered for use; power windows, power mirrors, HVAC controls, etc.. Pushing on the brake pedal turns on rear brake lights at anytime. The security light is either on, blinking or flashing. With door open, the dome light is on, key chime dings and the door ajar indicator would be on (signal from bcm). If the battery is a few years old, either have it tested by any auto store selling car batteries or recharge it at home if you have a charger. Driving about an hour can fully recharge a dead battery.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
