Sounds like the battery is knackered - happened to me once, the thing wouldn't even take/hold a charge. :(

I'd guess your battery has had it. Best get on to eurocarparts and get another.

Regarding the button - a picture is worth a thousand words - but I'd be guessing that is something to do with an aftermarket alarm system, as there are no buttons in the footwell on a standard car.
