I have a 2007 GT/CS. About a month or two ago, the battery died on my car. I think it was because my husband left the running lights on. We jumped it off and went through all of the rigamarole (sp?) of re-setting the system by driving 10 miles and not turning on any superflous systems, etc... Since then I have had the following electrical or computer related glitches happen off and on (we have since again reset the system a couple times in hopes of re-setting whatever is causing the problem
- Windows do that little "roll down a half inch" when the door is opened, but fail to roll back up. Also they won't do the "fast up" when I flip the window switch up - instead I have to hold the window switch "up" until the window is all the way up. Until today it was only the passenger window, but now the driver's window is also failing to operate properly.
- Overdrive "off" light is backwards - it says that the overdrive is off when it's really on and vice versa.
- Interior lights - at the end of a trip they sometimes stay on after car is turned off, passengers have exited, factory alarm has been set and doors are properly shut. The amount of time the lights stay on varies.
- Remote issues - tonight when leaving the factory remote wouldn't work to unlock the car and turn on the lights. When I got home (after 35 miles of driving) the remote worked fine.
These problems are a bit maddening because they don't happen continuously, though they are getting worse and are happening more continually. I don't work or live near a dealership (I'm still under warranty), so I'm hesitant to go though all the hassle to drop it off, get someone to drive me around, etc...just to hear the ol' "we can't fix it if it's not happening right now" party line.
I am brand new here and I'm sorry if it's bad form to ask a question right off the bat, but I'm desperate to have all the info that I can before going and dealing with the dealership just have wasted my time and have all the malfunctions pop back up the next day. Also, if this topic has already been discussed, I'm sorry, but I couldn't find the right key words to search for it.
Thank you all in advance.
