The most common cause of battery drains is that one of the interior lights is on, check the visors if they are lights and the glove box light under hood and trunk lights, check the interior at night to see if any lights are on, the next step is that the Alternator has a failed diode and is causing a draw. Also have the battery tested for a bad cell, that to will draw the battery low.

most likely a bad cnnection from the battery or at the starter. next time it will not turn over at all have some one tap on the starter with a hammer (or a long bar if you can't get to it with hammer) while you turn the key over.
