My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

From what you have described here this may be due to a fault with a position sensor sending a false signal on what position one or more of the jacks are in.You will have to have this tested further to locate if this is a position sensor as well as if anything else is found to be an issue needing to be repaired or replaced to resolve this fault here.Being a 2017 model this may still be covered under factory warranty to be diagnosed and repaired by a dealer or repair shop that can honor the warranty at no charge to you.This is the best thing to do here as in some cases if it tampers with this can void some warranty.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
