You may have just simply had an issue with the alternator. Sometimes these can become stuck or not put out enough power to re-charge the battery, and this is why your battery was going flat. However a bad earth, open circuit or other similar electronic fault could cause your battery to drain and go flat. In addition to this, if your battery was to develop sulphur crystals (white solid crystal like things appearing from inside the battery) then this can cause your problem.
Each and every way you look at this, the main thing here is that your battery was not providing enough power to your ignition system and was either totally chargeless or about "flat" at time of need. So changing the battery was sensible (no point staring at something as interesting / annoying as a flat battery)
Might also be a good idea to perform a routine service on components in order to prevent any further mishaps. So changing things like your oil, filters, HT/ LT leads and spark/ glow plugs will all be of benefit. Also might want to take a look at that alternator, and even possibly the ignition coil. While about all of this, a simple visual inspection of your drivebelt and timing belt/ cam belt will possibly prevent something fatal from happening to your engine (if a timing belt breaks while engine is in service, then you will find that you will be replacing costly components if the whole thing is not KAPUT).
I hope that all of this has been useful and that the further advice will keep your vehicle in tip top condition.

I had the same problem. it sucks the key is still in the on position and the battery WILL DIE. so what u need to do is under the streering colum there is a plastic screw u remove it and stick a thin pointy object up in the hole push in the cloum lock its a metal piece while u are pushing it in turn the key. this will fix your problem.......

It's a small draw if it takes that long, I would start by checking the under hood lamp, they have a mercury switch which if it is not on level ground have tendency to stay on, the switches also plain and simple fail and keep the light on. Same holds true if it has a trunk lamp, and the third is the glove box lamp. The best was to check these of course is in the dark.
Typically you would remove one of the battery cables use an Ammeter in line and this would give you an amp reading if there is a draw an how much, once you have this, you can pull fuses until the draw stops. which ever fuse or disconnected item will now be exposed.

Check the cells on the battery, if they are dry or not full of water then they can go bad. That would incorporate the battery to keep dying. When you start the car it feeds off the alternator, and then starts to die.
Check your charging system, test the battery.
