This morning we discovered our beautiful GV80 completely dead. The battery wouldn't even jump, it was so dead. Towed to the dealer, they're saying the car must be started AT LEAST TWICE PER WEEK due to all the network comms, otherwise this will happen, as if it's a known issue. The car has been parked for 7 or 8 days. Anyone familiar with this issue?

There are numerous posts about the battery issue. My battery was dead after two days of being parked. Called Genesis for road service to jump start it. Dealer could not determine what was draining battery.

Sorry to that happened to you. My experience has been very different. I recently had knee replacement surgery and did not start the vehicle for about two weeks or more and had no problem. With that in mind I would think that something in your car is draining the battery. Good luck.

It ia best to lock the car when leaving it for more than a day. That cuts off certain features that use battery power when the car is sitting unlocked.

We started this same conversation back in September. Our GV70 had to be towed in twice and we mostly got the same comments you did. We didn't want to accept the lame excuse of starting up the vehicle and taking a drive a couple times a week but they insisted there was nothing wrong with the battery. We like you do not drive every day but it was determined to be a defective battery mostly from draining on the long ship ride from Korea. We got a new battery from them but we do keep it on a battery tender. My husband routed the wire thru the grill and we have a little pigtail we can unplug and tuck into the grill and plug back in we we bring it back home. Works great and no problems sitting idle for awhile. Good luck to you...hope this helps.

My GV80 is 16 months old. The electronics continuously eat into the battery charge even with the car stationary and idle. I recommend if you are leaving your car more than two weeks, put a “trickle charger” on the battery. Access to the battery is easy in the rear. We were gone for a few weeks last year and I began getting messages on my Genesis phone app of low battery. When we traveled earlier this year, I put the charger on the battery and it was perfect when I returned home. No warning messages.
