The only fix is to buy their battery. gruhhhh!!
that new batt is way under-charge, put it on battery charger overnight; you'll be fine.

The same thing is happening to me. I took my car in for recall last week and now my battery is completely dead this week. I read that the battery has lifetime warranty. So ask before u pay.

Had mine done last week. Feared that something might happen to my car (scratched dent etc) while getting it fix. Well my instinct was right, came home and saw a 3 x 2 inch gash on the rear passenger side bumper. Ha next time I let the battery spark the car and burn down before I take it to the F*in dealer.

What battery did you get with a lifetime warranty?
