Check the light next to the shift level, if is going out after 10-15 min. after you park the car Check the operation of the windows, interior lights, sunshade lights,alarm, central locking,windshield wipers, as they might indicate a culprit in the GM III (general module). Also navigation, radio issues?
Also do you have a correct battery replacement?
