Call the AAA if you are a member, they have a fantastic battery service for their clients. They will come to your location, check out your charging system, and determine if your alternator and battery is working together. Maybe your keyfob will open the door, but, you need a lot more power to start the engine. Now, if it starts and dies , maybe you have a fuel, air, ignition problem. When did you last get your car serviced? And, do you have a lot of miles on this car?

did you leave your lights on overnight ???also have your alternator checked out maybe it isn't charging the battery

The AAA will check your battery and alternator when they come out, provided you are a member. It's part of their services and they'll even offer to sell you a great battery, with a 3 year unconditional guarantee, really great deal. I've used their services before, you won't regret it.
