Sat for 2.5 weeks. 12V Battery died! :(
While waiting for the broken window to come in and then recovering from illness, the car sat for 2.5 - 3 weeks. When I went to start it, the car was dead as a doornail. Sooo... after some communication with a service adviser, I unscrewed the cover in the passenger footwell to pop the frunk then tore off some tabs to reveal the battery. Then I bent back the positive terminal cover, attached my jumper cables, and started the car up. The main battery had 97%! I made it to the dealer and got a loaner. I also found out, in this process, that I never got my charger when I bought the car. I've been using our 240v chargers all this time, and just assumed the 120v was in the trunk. It wasn't. I'm not sure if the 120v would jump the car, but it might be worth a try.
Also the Discovery Sport loaner is a surprisingly decent ride with plenty of torque from a 2 liter turbo. Very little spool time or turbo lag. Color me impressed.
