    Charge it up, then have it load tested. Cable lugs corrode.

    Might also pull the DTC's and check for a power drain with the car off.

    You might just have bad battery. Unhook it at home and check after couple days. may just not be holding a charge. You need to see it holding at least 12 volts after sitting for a day or so.

    I'm with rodnok on this one -
    charge the battery - let it sit a couple hours - then check the voltage -
    after a couple days - check the voltage again -
    that will tell you if you have a battery problem or something draining the battery

    A doorbell? Couldn't someone just knock on your window to get your attention?

    The bell in your car is actually a physical bell and striker, somewhere near the glovebox. I'm not sure exactly where, but I'd start by removing the glove box (liner).
