You clearly had a short that is draining the battery. Charge the battery run the car for a few hours with accessories on, shut the car off and start again, if the car fails to start then you are running off the battery. Another way is to put a multi meter on the battery that fully charged throttle up the car. The battery should raise, it it goes diwn then you are running off the battery. Are all the lights off in the car...maybe a courtesy light that you cant see that might be on...
