What a pain in the ass. I knew this was going to happen soon too. I got in my car this morning and it started up perfect, no issues. I drive about 5 mins away to the tax collector and when I get back in my car it starts up perfectly fine again. I drive another 5 minutes away to the shell station. I get my fuel. Go to start the car. I get a single click from the starter and it gives up. Then all the random errors pop up. I knew right away it was the battery. I go inside the gas station and ask the clerk if there's anyway to get me a jump and a random guy that was checking out said he'd give me a hand. I tried to give him a $20, but he wouldn't take it. Immediately after this I went to grab a battery, already got it back up and running again. 11:30 the battery was dead. By 12:15 the new battery was installed.

Do you think that your repeated 5 minute trips had anything do to with the early battery failure?
