Your lucky it lasted this long.


Ok, start with a fully charged battery, disable the trunk lamp, close the latch (with the trunk open) and check for dark current draw, if its over .5 amps, start hunting, otherwise, get a new battery. (spec is more like .2 to .3 but I've noticed a lot of them with .4 and .5, as long as driven frequently that do fine)
