- a bad one
I have a 2004 Kia Optima EX V6. The battery was a year old in November. The car has not been driven much since May when I lost my job. When I got the oil changed in December they said the battey's "Cold crank" was too low an I should replace it. I told them the battery was under warranty still so I'd look in to it. Anyway, the car has recently developed some weird electrical problems. First the "open trunk" light would not go off when the car was off. I was afraid it would drain the battery so I disconnected the light bulb in the trunk. That worked for when the car is off but the "trunk open" light on stays on when the car is running now. Secondly, every time I turn the car on it wants to run the AC at 25c. I usually crank the heat to the max (32c) but it doesn't stay at that temp. Also, the blower settings aren't saved either. I direct the heat to the floor but when I turn the car on it's blowing on the windshield. I didn't used to have to reset this every time I turned the car on. Finally, I no longer have a clock. It's totally gone. Does anyone have any idea what's wrong with my car? At the moment, I'm letting it run for an hour. Thanks in advance for any help.
