Default Lease vehicle question

So my whole life I always purchased a vehicle, being I was in the automotive field doing maintenece and lift time was always available.
Fast forward 20 years and now I have less time and more money (first world problem.LOL) so I have leased my last 3 trucks

Woke up this am to a dead battery in my 2016 leased silverado - Is this something that is taken care by the dealer, or am I on my own with this?
BTW - didnt leave and lights on or anything like that - 99.9% its a bad battery.

Have to lo9k at your agreement but generally that would be a maintenance item. Especially after 6 years.

Depends on the lease, my wife's AMG is on a full maintenance lease; everything is taken care of during the 36 month lease. They bring a loaner and pick it up and return it fixed no matter what. We leased it because one accident report kills the resale/trade value. With the lease it not my problem.

Typically not covered unless it was a defect covered by warranty.
