Default K900 Battery Drain

My 2017 K900 has had a weird battery drain from day one. If the car sits for more than 4 days without being started it wonít start. The car was bought new and has only 10,000 miles on it. Countless trips to the dealer, phone calls, visits from Kia engineers, etc. Have moved keys away from it when parked in the garage, made sure doors are locked when parked, all to no avail.
Our local dealer has told us ďwe just sell and service them, we donít build them.Ē The lack of care from the dealer in Wichita, KS is extremely disturbing. How is it possible that Kia canít pinpoint this problem? If anyone else has this problem maybe itís time for a class action suit. About ready to dump the car and never buy another Kia...

Sorry to hear about the problem, Dguzman. I'm fortunate to be able to say that I have not had this issue, but if you search around here a little you will see that quite a few other owners have.

I don't believe anybody has been able to post a foolproof solution, though. Please keep us up to date as to what's going on with your car--maybe it can help somebody else.
