I had the same problem. I kept mine on a tender too to prevent all those problems. But after several software updates for various problems and possibly a few 80mi drives, the problem went away. Thought I'd need a new battery, but I no longer keep it on the tender and I've stopped having the problems that you report. Get it checked by your dealer and don't give up.

Regarding what I discovered after buying it: The creme beige leather is beautiful to look at, but it gets really dirty really fast if I drive with the top down. I spend lots of time cleaning it with a damp cloth and then occasional Lexol cleaner and conditioner. The matching floor mats are the same. I bought some dark blue mats that match the exterior color and I"m MUCH happier.
