It certainly can. Also, batteries need to be changed in pairs or you will quickly be replacing one, then the next, over and over.

I would change both batteries, check and clean all cables/terminals, clear the FICM code and then monitor FICM main power for a while. It should never go below 46v. If it does you need to get it repaired or replaced.

I would also confirm the alternator is working properly after battery replacement.
