Strange Electrical Problems
It all started with the automatic headlights flashing intermittently when the car was parked. Dealer said I needed a new sensor, but have just operated the lights manually instead.
Next, when first starting up, the CD changer in the back would act like it was cycling thru searching for a CD. I solved that by removing the disk cartridge.
Now, the programmed commands for auto door lock at 15 MPH and unlock all doors when driver's door opened work sometimes, and sometimes not.
These are just inconveniences. My big concern is that now, when starting the car, it sounds like the battery is really dragging down, but the car starts and the battery gauge looks normal. It is getting progressively worse and I am afraid that one of these mornings the thing will not start.
