djn, I believe you have some accessory that is on when the key is in the off position.
Check to make certain glove box light is not on when the glove box door is closed and the trunk light is not on.
If you have an aftermarket radio or any added accessories make sure they are not wired direct to battery voltage.
If all that checks out, disconnect the battery negative and connect a test light between the battery and battery cable. If the light is on you have a drain in the electrical system. Leave the light connected and begin removing 1 fuse at a time until the light goes out, that will tell you what component or circuit is draining the battery.
Last resort, you may have an alternator drawing the battery down.
Good luck and let me know.

it is possible that the low beam headlight bulbs went bad at the same time, need to check for power at the headlight connections. if no power it is possible that you could have blown a fuse since the car has had other electrical issues. also will want to check the dimmer switch on the steering column, it to may be bad not allowing the low beams to work.
