Battery and check altenator for charging you should be within dealer warranty. advance and autozone auto parts will check for free and replace battery if required when you buy their battery of course. because the dealers pro rated battery may cost you more under warranty than for you to just buy one from some one else. if your charging system is defective then the dealer should handle the whole job so it can be warranted.

you have to loosen the mounting bolts on the fuse panel and on the bottom side the fuse is held in by 2 8 millimeter bolts.

Testimonial: "Very helpful and exactly right. Saved my neighbor a towing charge to the dealer. His car is back up and running. Thank you!!! "
That is the 1st thing to check, especially as the battery is most likely 5 years old now.
If the battery checks out, I would bet your starter relay is failing.
A starter solenoid (or starter relay) is the part of an automobile which relays a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion. In many vehicles the solenoid also engages the starter pinion with the ring gear of the engine.
