Battery keeps dying on me.

Dealer service advisor states to replace battery it will cost $299 and to install and program (program?) it will cost $199. This really seems to be way to much, and whats with programming the battery?

The battery died. Replaced it with new battery now the radio and the dome light won't work.


It could be the body control module. Have you had the car scanned for codes? Most auto parts stores will do it for free, but it might not show BCM codes.
Your best bet is to ask the dealership to do a specific scan for your make and model even though it will probably cost 80 bucks or maybe not if you had the battery replaced at the dealer.
This also could be a faulty diode that was installed at assembly which blows out after a while. The part is inexpencive ($5 unless's it's gone up?) but would be costly to have done by the dealer (maybe not, never hurts to inquire) and if your looking to do it yourself, it sounds fairly easy to do.
Hope this helps out a bit!

If the dealer already looked at this then your going to have to go by thier recommendations or go to a car audio installation shop. They may have more insight than the dealer. As far as getting the disks out once the unit is out of the car it can always be taken apart to remove the disks.

XM radio ''NOT READY'' message


I have had this problem at least a half-dozen times, and the simplest solution is to pull the 2 fuses labeled 'audio 1' and 'audio 2.' It resets the radio, but it will work for a while after that (until I have to do it again). Had the xm unit replaced 3 times, new antenna installed, replaced the antenna connection wire - it always dies within a month.

I just checked a site which provides an estimator. Apparently those plugs are hard to get to. In my area, the estimate is $48 - $72 for parts (plugs), and $199 - $254 for labor, depending on whether you use a dealer or an independent shop. It would seem that the price you paid was reasonable (good even!).

Battery died. Now electronics don't work


If those items were dealer installed instead of factory, there may be a separate fuse servicing those accessories and it could be installed in series with a 12 volt lead under the dashboard and not part of the standard fuse box. Fuses do fail from metal fatigue and it's possible a surge from a fresh battery took one out.
