2008 Porsche Boxster Questions

Why won't our Porsche start without checking the oil first? (1 answer)

I know you can check the oil by turning the key to the first stop. However now every time we try starting the car it won't let us start until it checks the oil level. And sometimes it makes you check it twice before starting. This every time now.

Radio and heater fans worked, the blickers worked even though I could not see the indicators on the dashboard.WhenI got home, and restarted the car, the battery was very low like it had been drained by the lights. Where do I start to look?
