Unfortunately this is a common problem with this model Hands free link unit. What has happened is the HFL unit in the roof light has failed causing it to stay "on" and drain the battery as well as stick in the booting up mode.You can either replace the unit or disconnect it to keep it from draining the battery . If you give me the vin# ***** the car I can give you the part number of the HFL Unit and instructions on replacing it.
