Great info.

My question is regarding the Battery. My car tends to sit for a week at a time in a Manhattan parking garage, and when driven during the week, it is often short distances. Of note, the car is also equipped with Comfort Access. Recently, the car has been showing error signals such as increased battery discharge, or the battery charge symbol. It also seems that the remote battery has died as well. Does this car battery require replacement, or simply a charge? And does the car need to have a battery charger connected to it weekly? Certainly a tight Manhattan garage is going to make this difficult, but I can bribe my way into getting it done if it prevents frequent battery changes.

And what is a fair price for "registering" the battery?

Thank you in advance.
