2015 PMC, also bought in 2016, same problem here, just across the river in nky, was away for four days out of town, came back my promaster city slt wouldn't start. Jumped it, took it to autozone they ran their diagnostics, battery defective. Looks complicated to change out with all that stuff on top of it, dealership visit in a couple days

Im in Tx and just replaced my battery. It's not that hard to do. There's a lot of complicated-looking stuff, but you can just go past all that to the standard battery lugs. It's just like any other battery. The only real difference is the two small screws that physically hold all the complicated stuff to the top of the actual battery.

I'm definitely disappointed the battery didn't last longer.

You'd think that you should be able to get 5 years out of a new battery? jeeezzzz

Most Mopar & Ford cars and truck usually have an indication of the battery going dead through the radio/clock. If your battery is getting low or going bad, the clock would reset to 12:00. If you reset the clock thinking nothing of it, 1 or 2 days later, it would go back to 12:00 again. Have any of you noticed this feature?
It used to be stated in the manual, but I didnt see anything in PMC manual about this.
That is a shame. I've had Ram trucks for years and the batteries lasting me for 4-5 years with more than 100,000 miles. Cheap ass crap!!
