hi richard. the shortest time between starts is 48-72 hours, and has gone as long as a week to two weeks between starts. but most of the time, it is happening in that shorter time span, around 3 days between starts. the battery was just replaced with a brand new one a week ago!
hi richard. thanks for the info so far and for providing the bulletin number. but just one last point... do you have any advice for what I can do to possibly get reimbursed for that battery it sounds like I probably DIDN'T need to get replaced? It sounds like the dealer *should* take care of the true issue no charge, under the bulletin and also because the vehicle is still under warranty, but do you think I am out the $125 I just spent getting a probable "perfectly fine" battery replaced by an independent shop?
