If the car itself is under warranty (2008, right?), shouldn't the dealer be responsible for the fried controller as well?
If the "dealership" referred only to a battery dealer that has nothing to do with your car, or the warranty is expired, then unfortunately yes, the battery was damaged due to outside influence and the replacement is out of warranty (Unless you can demonstrate they are responsible for the fried controller or were negligent in the installation).
