Simultaneous 12V battery fail and LTE fail?


Sep 30, 2012
United States - NY
I just got the mildly dreadful "replace 12v battery soon" message. This will be my 2nd 12V battery in 8 years, so I'm not complaining as 4 years per battery seems a decent life expectancy all things considered, and the cost to replace is not _that_ bad.

The message is slightly different this time - "updates will not be downloaded until 12V battery is replaced". That's a new one for me. I also notice that my LTE is disabled. WiFi works fine, but LTE is crossed out and does not work.
I looked around the threads and can't find a correlation of the two.I am curious if the two are related - and replacing the 12V battery will also fix the LTE. I have a service appointment in a few weeks to have the battery replaced, but they could not tell me if the two were related. I guess I'll find out then. Wondering if anyone else experienced this?
