RLaguna First time posting :D

First posting here, so it would be unfair for me to mark an option without airing my problem

I registered before i had a problem tbh, and this morning i found that when i went to unlock the car (using the remote plip'er type key thingie) i didn't get my indicator flash nor the sound of locks i inittially had two thoughts.
One) the battery is dead in my remote (range has been diminishing somewhat over the last few months, but i went out for a ride last night, and range was a good solid 10ft everytime)... so i thought it must be
Two) The car battery is dead.

I unlocked manually, and tried to start the car and nothing.
Anyways, i just bought a battery charger and connected the battery, but it apparantly has 50% charge in the battery.

I'm assuming that isn't enough?
With the fans and lights off, the Aux panel lights up, and the fuel guage flickers...but that's as far as it gets.

I'll leave the battery on trickle til tomorrow and connect it up there, but it just seems odd that i went out last night and today it won't start. (Odd in the sense i didn't leave a light/radio/anything on that could drain the battery).

I'm hoping this will be one part of the problem rectified, i say one part, because of course when you disconnect the battery for some time, you then have to input the radio code which i don't have.

If it's not one thing...... [sigh]

Anyways, thanks for reading to the end
And thanks in advance
