problem #1

Sep 242017


  • 3,800 miles
Upon starting vehicle within garage with only 3,800 miles, dashboard warning messages indicated daytime running, tail, and turn signal lights not functioning (similar to earlier 2015 and 2016 issues searched on web). Lights are physically operating with false warning messages - no bulbs out. At same startup, drivers side power seat not functioning at same time warning indicators seen for lights. Seat inoperable and cannot be repositioned manually. Upon fuse and relay change out for seat, warning lights did not reappear after restart of vehicle, however seat still non responsive and stuck in current full back position making it a hazard for a driver less than 6 foot tall to operate safely. Next day, dealer was called and is unavailable to see vehicle for over one week. To try something different, vehicle was started by remote starter and power seat now functioning. Probably a coincidence only that seat now works however vehicle to be taken to dealer for electrical troubleshooting.
