There have been a lot of debate on this subject but it seems the majority agress that you'll need to have the new battery registered by the dealer or it won't last too long.

Sam,it's due for a new one, according to the manual the oem battery is only good for 4 yrs and 3 months. you are right tender might have extended a few more days..but i figured since i was driving it everyday it would stay charges..
