One suggestion on the battery drain is to check your door dome light switches. After you have turned the car off at the end of a journey, the power windows and seats stay active until a door is opened and the light switches on (at least in my 86 - I don't know about earlier models.) One of my door switches hangs up in cold weather, and if I don't open the other door, or remember to pull the switch out with my fingers, the battery drains much quicker than when the light comes on when leaving the car. I have a 7 year old battery, and it's good for three week naps between drives, unless I was forgetful about the dome light. Soon, I'll pull the switch out and fix it, but at least I know the source of my problem.
