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!
