I have 00' 528, I started the car one morning and the car will not start, I jumped started it, and it worked fine, five hours later, the battery died again. Got a new battery from Autozone, two weeks later which is this morning, battery dead again, so am I missing something or a technician told me, could be the amp ? I just left the car at the dealer today, but hope I can get help from you guys, I've had the car for a month now 50K miles.thanks
Sounds like you have a parasitic draw on the system (if you have aftermarket stereo equipment it could be the cause) They will find out what's going on at the dealer, shouldn't worry too much until you know more
thanks guys, everything is stock, I just got a call from the dealer, and something about a computer module that needs to be replaced, I don't recall if he said climate control module or computer module, anyway I also mentioned about morning starts, with the idle going up and down for about ten minutes til it warms up, he said I should update the computer program to 2006, gets better gas mileage and might fix the idle program.
