Out of the Blue

Well, the cautious part of my cautious optimism about our car turned out to be more accurate than the optimism part, as it refused to start after having a couple of days to drain the battery. It spent the night at the mechanic: He found a problem with a dome light that stayed on when the door was closed, but he's not sure that's the entirety of the problem (and I'm pretty sure he's right that it isn't), so he's taking some more time to suss it out.

Blue dude,

With dead car batteries come shorts in the electrical system. Mostly in the battery itself as a result of other shorts.
Opinion: replace battery, alternator, battery cables and make sure you have new battery cable connectors. Then be done with it.
I know it sounds like throwing money at it and hope it works...but that is what I usually do with older cars. How old is you car BTW?
