The battery itself may be internally shorted.

Dont know is this is related to the problem but since last week its doing something else, sometimes when I turn the key to turn on the car its doesnt star and the dashbord lights dont work, I leave the key open and wait till the lights come on and then the car starts

You need another mechanic here that can track this down. I take off the negative post and put in a test light to see if there is a drain. If there is start pulling fuses till the light goes out and then you will know what circuit is drawing it down.

Lots, you need a wiring diagram to see what else is in the circuit.
