Help with Electrical / Computer gremlins
I hope someone can help me. I'm experiencing electrical / Computer "Gremlins". It started (as I think back on it) a week or so ago with my remote control not always locking the car when I pressed the button. Sometimes it would ... some times not. Often if I pressed the unlock button followed by the lock it would lock. Then it started having problems pairing the bluetooth phone that had worked for months (years?). then last night when I would shift the car would shift "very aggressively" with a very firm kcik in the butt. I reset the transmission with the double paddles thing and all was well until it sat overnight. This morning it won't pair the bluetooth at all (and I can't turn bluetooth off at all), I can't change a lot of the other setting, the aggressive shifts are back (double paddle fixed it again). It's sure act like a computer that is "stuck" and not taking inputs. I tried the computer reset with the mute/eject button on the CD but that did not clear it up. I'm wondering...
1. has anyone else had problems like this and if so what was the cause and cure?
2. Is there some more aggressive reset of the computer that might help?
