The past two mornings I went to start the car and it was dead as a door nail. Nothing was left on to drain the battery, and I replaced the battery one year ago.

It seemed to do the trick and the car started right up. Why did this happen again this morning?

After removing, cleaning and topping up the coolant reservoir, the battery doesn't seem to hold much of a charge. I.E. The engine cranks very sluggishly before kicking in. As well, the clock loses the time setting after each start. In fact initially, right after putting back the coolant reservoir and reconnecting all the hoses and sensor plug, the battery was totally dead. I needed a boost to start the car again. It drives the same, no stalling etc., and no warning lights appear on the dash pane
