2012 X5 with 14.5k miles, same symptoms - yellow icon, no halos when unlocking. Brought the truck in late Nov., checked and charged battery, recoded (SA claimed the car wasn't going to sleep). 6 weeks later, now I'm getting the same. I assume they need to run more diags to see if a module is draining and/or replace the battery.

Anything else I should specifically ask for? I'm taking it in again in about 2 weeks for my 15k.
