If you took it in for repairs and it's not fixed, why not take it back to the shop that did the repairs and have them check over their work?

Correct, take it back, the longer you wait the more time will pass and your warranty will expire. By the way, did they give you one, in writing?

No they didn't give one in writing but they said its a year warranty. We agreed tomorrow I'm gonna drive the car and have them check it themselves because they say it's charging on their system but on my car it's not, and now they sending me to have the car checked and there is no problem with it . Thank you I'll update you tomorrow
