my tesla show me to chenge the battary 12v but my car was stoped for tree months !
if i take it and charge it ? it's will be better or i must to buy new one !

You can keep the old one and keep manually recharge it until it completed dead but it's quite inconvenient.

It's better just to buy another 12V battery.

Some people pay lots of money for Lithium 12V battery but Lithium requires more care in extreme heat and cold than a conventional one.

It's your choice.
