I have a 2013 V6 that I've been happy with (aside from the misfiring in sport mode due to the intake I installed, but I've come to live with that).
Recently, about a month and a half ago, I had my battery die (that happens every few months due to my radar detector being always on, if I leave it for more than a couple days it dies). This time, when I jumped it, it had some weird electrical issues that have come up.
When I first jumped it, it seemed to have a lot of electrical abnormalities. The first one I noticed was that my driver window didn't work. That started working again after I turned the car off and back on, though. Another thing was that it wouldn't release my key when turning the car off, it did that for a day or two then that seemed to fix itself. However, some other things have continued to not work since then.
A few things that I've noticed aren't working right since then:
1. The steering lock just doesn't work when in park, the steering wheel can be turned freely.
2. My front left foglight stopped working. Could be that the HID bulb died... but it's unlikely that it happened at the exact same time as everything else, yes?
3. I've just now noticed that I can't get any heat when the car is not under power. The car heats up to normal temperature at a normal speed (at least according to the temperature gauge), but I can't get any heat to come out of the system unless I'm running really high RPMs. If I put the car in 2nd, heat will come out as I'm running high RPMs, but anything short of a good amount of power results in cold air for the first 15-20 minutes that I'm in the car. Unless I'm on the interstate of course, then it is under load and gives normal heat.
The last one is the one that finally prompted me to inquire about this, because where I am, it is now in the 20s every day and the heat thing is becoming more of an issue.
I have checked all of the fuses in the cabin, especially the ones relating to any of the issues I've described, and they're all fine. It's like these are all tied together, but randomly, and are related to something I'm missing.
Has anyone seen anything like this before, or have any ideas of things I might try? Beyond fuses, I'm really pretty lost to what it could be..
