Hi. Has anyone had any electrical problems?? My 3 week old is at the dealer and they haven’t been able to locate the problem yet. Wouldn’t start today, had to jump it. The alarm went off in the middle of the night, I turned it off and secured it. Then wouldn’t start when I woke up a few hours later. Battery tested and no problems.. has anyone any ideas what it could be?
Thanks!

@Lancer3, can you try these steps to reset the battery management system?
  1. Get in vehicle, close doors
  2. Turn on ignition (but don't start)
  3. Wait for battery light to come up
  4. Flash brights 5 times
  5. Press and release brake 3 times
  6. Battery symbol on dashboard should flash after 5-10 seconds

I took to the dealer and they reset the BMS. Seems to be doing ok now. Hopefully it doesn’t drain again! Thanks for sending the sequence over. I’ll try that myself if it happens again.
