I have Ultegra di2 on my cross bike. It's about a year old and previously worked fine. I haven't ridden it since cross season and when I checked the battery it was dead. I charged it and it went dead in about 2 days. I charged it again and when I checked the status the green light came on and then the green and red lights came on together. It went dead again in 2 days. I did update the firmware. I don't have the diagnostic box and live in the sticks so my local bike shop is not familiar with di2. Can anybody help?

No one can do anything without plugging the battery into the diagnostic software. Does your shop even have a SM-PCE1?

Sounds like your battery is shot, where did you get it?
There may be a fault in your setup draining power though. When it is charged and in the bike, does everything work or is it acting up?

Charge the battery fully and then disconnect it from the system. Let it sit for a few days while disconnected and then plug it back into your system. If there is a good level of charge, then one of the components likely has an internal short or is not powering down properly.

Good luck!

This...
But the batts do go bad so there's that. Will the diagnostic catch a RD or FD running down the bat? Just curious.

I had a bad front junction box that caused my battery to drain prematurely. It took a while to track it down but once I swapped it out my battery life was fine. A year old battery is not old enough to be having issues.

I did that. In four days it was flashing green when I checked, in five days flashing red.

charge your battery to full, leave it out of the bike for a week, check it. If it is full charge, it is not the battery.
