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.

Got the "we sell trickle chargers for $65 because your 20 mile round trip commute isn't long enough to charge the battery" quote from the SA today. Will try another SA to at least try and get a new battery out of it.
