Hi everyone, I have a 2016 glc 300, about 47300 miles .
This morning on my drive in to work, I got a message on my dash board with symbol of a battery which read, “ stop vehicle leave engine running.” I pulled over left car running, I was not far from work and drove in to work left the car running for 15 min. Turned car off, then on , no battery message. But I had to start my shift, I called dealer /service department they instructed me to do what I did & to try to bring the car in if able, but was warned that my Vehicle could stop and it could be battery. I work in healthcare and need to be at work right now. I might be able to take to service on Friday, but my question is: if it is the battery 1. Can this be something AAA can help with? 2. Can one replace a battery themselves?? 3. Should I absolutely take it to dealer??
im going to turn car on at lunch , assuming it turns on and leave the engine running again. I appreciate any advice! Truth be told I’m a caregiver too, and need my vehicle to be reliable , especially during this time ... but I want to do whatever is efficient without paying an arm and leg . Thankyou!

Echobee Hi, I had a similar problem on my Land Rover Disco. If you have any warranty on your car, call out your breakdown agent and they should change your battery FOC. If no cover the new battery won't be cheap. If you do a lot of Stop/Start driving it doesn't help. If you can, take it out for a good 50 (ish) mile run, that will also help help your DPF re generate.
