Battery Warranty Process ?

i recently (2019-07-15) purchased a 2018 Lariat, i have done some Forscan mods and installed a Blackvue dash cam.. during both these endeavours i have run into battery cutoff's which resulted in my having to throw a smart charger on the truck.

The camera monitors while parked and has a battery minder which turns off the system at 12.2v which is 40% charged. After charging the battery to 12.68v which os roughly 100% i can get a day before it depletes the battery to 12.2v and this thing pulls no amperage at all.

I think my battery probably froze on the lot as here in Alberta it gets dam cold, it sat for 12 months before i purchased it.. ( 12 months and here it gets to -40C for weeks at a time) I think it is in need of a replacement.

does anyone have experience getting a battery replaced ?

Jgleadle, I donít think the stuff you installed has anything to do with your issues. Iíve got a 2018 with no problems until about 2 months ago. I havenít change one thing. It never went into save batt mode and I have trickle charged it many times. Just took it in and the dealership called and said they couldnít find anything wrong with the charging system. Donít think they looked for a parasite. Theyíre keeping it over nite to see how it acts in the morning. Iíve done some research and this battery appears to be new and thereís other complaints. I noticed right before they called, my app said that my truck went into save batt mode. Itís only supposed to do that after youíve parked for a couple of weeks. I AM NOT taking it home until they change something. I have found a way to get it to crank if youíre in a bind (I was at the airport). Tap each battery post with a wrench (hard enough that you donít cause damage). Iíve used this method twice. The battery does take a charge and it lasts about a week and then I have to do it again.

Just called and my battery has one bad cell. These batteries must be moonrocks because theyíre waiting on one.

I looked at my battery and they are big monsters. They seem to retail for about $200 at the parts stores. I guess this is a compromise between one large battery and two smaller ones
