Less than a week ago I purchased a 2018 limited 4x4 14k miles. Drove it home 15 miles then only drove it a few miles over the weekend. Drove to work this morning 15 miles. Got in it to leave work and when I started it every warning light on the vehicle went off lights blinking everywhere. Drove it back to the lot. They’re gonna call tomorrow. Any thoughts?

battery possably if it sat for a whiler before being sold... That being said it could be a bunch of things . Just wait for diagnosis and take it from there

I just mentioned this in another thread. I had that happen once. It was winter and I backed out of my driveway, crashing through the road rind so my neighbor could plow my driveway. I parked and when I restarted, like you, my dash lit up like a Christmas tree. I shut it off briefly and when I restarted all but the CEL were gone. I went to a store that does free scans and when I got there the CEL went out before he even checked it. There were no stored codes.

I also had a problem with the TPMS warning for no reason. Tire pressure was fine and the light went out when I restarted.

Too many electronics in these new vehicles.

I hope it’s just some freak thing. 🙏
