Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Yes the Hybrid Battery has never been a problem, the small starter battery is charged
this is a problem that seems to get worse after I bring it back to a dealer and they update software from recalls.its stopped raining here and I hope after work I can some how get it to a dealer.I have had it do weird things like the mirror light not go offTurn the car off and instead of the radio and dash go off (turn Off) they stay on when I open the drivers door which should close the circuit (turn every thing off)
also strange things something happen when I use the button to open the rear hatch

Ok this sounds like this vehicle has a problem with a shorted body control module or even the ignition switch have any of these been checked?

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
