Called a repair service; tech. came and jumped the battery. He said a reset button needs to be engaged after a battery looses it's charge or, it will continue to discharge after charged. Has anyone experienced this? Has anyone had to replace a battery after 2 years?

    Thanks for your prompt respone. I suspected that the original batteries were junk. Had a brand new Dodge Omni GLH in 1984 and the battery lated one year. Was told that that was the life expectancy of their new batteries. Some things change and some remain the same in the auto industry.
