    Battery

    If I can't keep a new battery charged for a week, does that mean I need to get that battery run-down fix?

    I'll leave the car in the garage for a week sometimes and the battery will be too weak to start the car. The battery is less than a year old.

    PJ is having the same issue with his. It was to go back to the dealer so you might PM him and see if the dealer found out anything.

    My PM does not work. It was never re-activated after I was banned.

    I did take it to the dealer. They spent 2 hrs looking at it. Said that they ran all the electrical tests on the car w/without the battery in and on the battery itself. Said that nothing was wrong with the car or battery. My car has sat for two weeks and my battery is dead again. There is something wrong. I will be making another appointment soon.

    P.J.

    Have all the updates been performed to address battery drain as I have previously posted?

    Then enter your VIN; and print out calibration for ALL modules -- If your car is under warranty; and you have a dealership with more than 2 moving brain cells -- explain your issue -- they should know exactly what to do and can all be performed with a Tech 2.. at most it takes 1/2 hour labor time.. Don't let them try to pull any BS.
