even when i park the car at nightime and disconnect the terminals,the next morning when i connect the terminals to the battery it still will not start. what is discharging the battery if its not even connected?

It sounds like your Battery is on its last legs. If it is 4 years or older, it should be replaced. I find that the best Batteries last about 4-5 years. I replace mine at 4 years because by then it is really working the Alternator pretty hard to stay charged, especially when it is cold outside.
