The battery in my 2014 Sonic keeps dying and leaving me stranded.

Asked by Nov 14, 2016 at 11:00 PM about the 2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT Hatchback FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I took it to Auto Zone and the battery was unreadable. Took it to the dealership and "they charged it" and 3 days later stranded again. My question is WHY didn't they replace the battery instead of CHARGING it knowing it was gonna happen AGAIN???

Sounds like they didn't follow through with the testing, this really sounds like a charging system problem, when they charged the battery and test d it it most likely checked good so,they didn't replace it, but they didn't go the next step and check the charging system, granted it is new enough that you shouldn't need an alternator, but this is a computer controlled charging system it maybe something else entirely.
