if it tests bad yes. Batteries normally last 3 years if maintained and kept clean. Inside vehicle batteries should last 5 years but if you use your reserve (use a lot of things with the car off) or have a stereo of any thump, its not at all uncommon to hhave em wear sooner. A new battery will fix your issue. have someone check the alternator during install

make sure you disconnect the dashhawk from the dlc at night. I know it seems like a pain but when the pcm sees something plugged in their it stays awake thinking its being diagnosed by the dealership. The modules should sleep within an hour of key off but sometimes will not if there is something on that line.
