The dealer couldn't figured out the problem so they called the engineering department in Smyrna, TN. They said they will change the OBC, supposed to arrive last Thu, well, now they say it is back ordered and there is no ETA, they gave me a 2010 Sentra in the meantime, but I can't wait forever.
I am an engineer, I know what the problem is and why the battery will die again. There are three simple solutions to this problem:
1) Replace all the lights including headlights to LED.
2) Add the solar panel.
3) Use a deep cycle battery, it will be better if they replace it with 2 6V 4D batteries. This will be the cheapest solution.
Those are not solutions at all.
If my "new" 2013 car were in the shop for a month, I think I'd be demanding a new car!
(and at least a "Z" car loaner, not some 2 year old POS Sentra.
I've had my car for over year.
I've abused the 12VDC system, left the lights on, left the door open all night, hooked up an 8 amp inverter and run it for 12 hours, and left town for 3 weeks on a whim just to name a few.
What I have NEVER done, is discover a dead leaf.. Ever.
You need a New "new" car dude.
Lemon law them.
