Gremlins in XLR since trunk opened in car wash


1. While driving home after picking up the car, the passenger side mirror went to the “reverse gear” position. I was able to control the mirror with the mirror again went to the “reverse gear” position. Putting the car in reverse does nothing.

2. Several times, while starting the car, the driver’s window goes down by itself.

3. WHILE SITTING IN THE DRIVEWAY THE TRUNK, ONCE
AGAIN WENT UP BY ITSELF.

4. Steering wheel does not go to driving position automaticallywhen starting engine,
have to push button.

5. OCCASIONALLY;
(a) when closing the drivers door, with all other doors
fully closed and no one in the car, I will get “three beeps.”


(c) Radio presets change AM & XM

(d) Radio shuts itself off

(e) Was listening to AM when shut down and when started radio had switched to XM by itself.


(f) When pushing position #1 seat button the radio changes stations

(g) When pushing position #2 seat button the passenger side AC turns off and the driver’s side goes from 75 degrees to 72 degrees and the fan goes on full

Hi Skip, this all sounds to me like there`s a ghost in your car.:rolleyes
I think the whole electrical system is messed up, I´m glad nothing of this a - g happened on my XLR.

Sounds like the wiring harness is pinched and shorted, or the main computer module has bought the farm.
One thing you could try is to disconnect the battery for 30 seconds. Then reinitialize the window processor - hold down the window up buttons for 30 seconds.

It is a long shot but easy to do. Between those problems and your roof issue, it almost sounds like spurious commands are being sent on the GM Lan. Usually spurious commands are garbage and nothing bad happens but somehow your spurious commands are valid. Very strange...
