What was the reason you replaced the battery? Was it sluggishly starting? If so, your starter may have been the culprit all along, by drawing too much power. Sounds like it may have gone out on you.

Also, this morning when I discovered my car wouldn't start the lights worked and the alarm. At 8PM it was completely dead. Why do you suppose that happened.
