The dealership is full of ****. Something is trickling the juice out of the battery when it sits for a period of time.
THEY need to find out what that something is.
In the old days, it could be a bad alternator.
someone forgot to turn the radio clear off.
There was a short in the wiring, somewhere and that was a bear to trace.
I am lost with the newer vehicles that run on so many computers BUT, something is draining the juice.
You could force them to put a new battery in just to be sure it isn't the battery.
You could put the truck on a trickle charger, continually ---- <<----- as in non-stop for the rest of its life.
It's not a big deal. We keep both of our diesel tractors perpetually on trickle chargers and my John Deere also gets plugged in during the colder weather because it gets used a lot more than the farm tractor.
FWIW, even though DH has worked for Ford his entire life, he builds his own race cars (Fords, lol) I'm going to ask him if your GM dealership is handing you a line of B.S. I think they are but what do I know, lollol
