Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

Expert:  p0llinate replied 5 months ago.

Those issues do all point to a faulty battery. Typically batteries should last a few years, but if it is charged/discharged frequently, or often left in a hot car for example, that will shorten the life.

The battery is replaceable, though you have to separate the casing in half to access it.You can order a kit with a replacement battery, the special tools needed to open the case, and instructions for about $15, here: http://amzn.to/2cKgsk2 If you have any other questions, just let me know. Otherwise, please take a moment to rate my service using the stars at the top of the page; hopefully I have earned 5 Stars.
