A weak battery and/or corrosion on wires can cause all sorts of seemingly unrelated issues in these computerized cars. Some have shared that the battery test even said it was good.

Lower than expected voltage can wreck havoc on modern cars. Clean the connectors and terminals good, reconnect and spray some Fluid Film on them to protect from future corrosion.

Or at least put the anti corrosion washer under the terminal clamps.
