Is your driver's door sagging? If so, the door may not be closing properly and the dome light stays on and kills the battery. Do you have a spare key fob? Sounds like the one you're using is worn out. Have you checked or replaced the mirror switch? Could be worn out. There are codes stored in the computer if the "check engine" light is on. Have it scanned and post the code(s) here so we can help. Advance auto parts or Autozone will do it for free. HTH. -Jim
