Possible Electrical Issue?
Long post warning. Sorry.
Well, think I'm starting to see the beginning of an electrical issue with my Compass Trailhawk already. Less than a month into my ownership, and 1300 miles on the odometer..
Anyway, my issues started one morning with me getting ready for work. Remote start as usual, below zero outside. It starts, and I finish getting ready to leave. I get in, push the button, and an error message pops up saying "start stop feature unavailable. Service start stop system", along with a warning light. I let my dealer know. They basically shrug it off. They take the vehicle but never looked at it. By the time I got in to go to lunch, the message and light do not come up. We call it a fluke and I decide to not really pressure them.
Fast forward a week. Same scenario: getting ready for work, below zero, remote start. Get in, push ignition button, error message and light come on. Take it in, they schedule me for this last Saturday. Brought it in, of course message and light would not come on that morning or while they had it. There was a stored code for a communication error, but the tech explained that stored codes don't give much info. Makes sense. He explained a few things and mentioned that there's a bulletin for a loose ground. He checked said ground, all is well. I take it home.
Fast forward to tonight. Just went shopping. As I'm checking out, I push remote start button. Not sure if it picked up that signal as I was a ways away. Anyway, get outside, see it isn't running. Remote start it again. Honks at me but fails to start. Do it a third time. Finally starts. Load my stuff in, get in driver's seat, push button and car shuts off. Wtf? You always have to push the button when remote starting. Ok whatever, let's start it back up with the push button. It starts, but my climate control settings are now completely different from what they were previously set to. I always have it at 80 degrees and set to defrost and floor, and fan speed 4 or 5. When it started, I saw temp was at 72, fan speed at 1, and set to vents...
I know this is a long post, but I'm curious if anyone else had seen or had a similar issue..
