Have you tried jumping it? Still no start? Check the battery harness for shorts, a big drain like that means a big short somewhere. Have the alternator tested, it may be internally shorted. If the lights are inoperative even when car is jumped, you may have a blown fuse or fuses, or a blown fusible link.
