message went away for me. haven't seen it since the weather warmed up. i also agree that the battery seems sub-standard if it isn't holding a charge in cold weather... and like some other's i don't seem to have a long enough commute to charge it.
Was out a short time ago and noticed my comfort access wasn't working either. I'm hoping this is due to the low battery and not another issue.
