Stupid "fix" for high battery drain, clock reset, etc.
I'm not sure whether this has been discussed. I have been having issues with car resetting clock almost daily and having high battery drain message on every start-up. I reset my battery and did every forum fix available (with exception of switching out comfort module) without luck. Well, I found a "fix" for my issue.
Instead of hanging my keyfob near my garage entrance (about 15ft away from the car through 2 walls), I started putting my keyfob in the kitchen which is far away from my car. My issues disappeared. I think the detection range may be little further than what one can anticipate.
I'm not saying this is panacea, but it's worth a shot if you're having similar problems. Over one week with no reset or battery error message which has never happened before.
On a more important note, I just clocked in over 10k miles on ACL bearings and pleased to announce no issues whatsoever. I never meant to daily the car, but it's pretty much my daily now! I may clock in that 30-50k mile for bearing inspection sooner than later.
