Re: Touch screen opens and closes by itself

First post!! Thrilled to be here!!:):)

I live outside Ottawa by a more than a few country miles, had the car floated to me on a truck just last week.

And this weekend the dreaded up/down screen horror show...

Was negotiating with dealer to come and retrieve when I tried the button trick.
- car off, hold start till beep, hold screen close button til stop, let go.

did that twice and the screen is staying still! I had been pulling the starter battery cable all weekend till
this was sorted out. And no trip back to the dealer!!

This is an ominous leap for me...I am an old school gearhead, three rides in the yard (bike/camper/convertible) that
are 30-50 years old. I can see how this is going to be a whole new experience:)!!!

oh, the audacity and hopefulness of a noob :oops:

Yeah, that button thing worked....once.

Just drove the car and same deal; up/down with the Nav screen once the car is turned off.

Could not recreate my earlier success with the button pushing dance, so now its a bit of
cedar taped to hold the OPEN/TILT button down, that keeps the screen up.

And send the truck, we are off to the dealer!!

I sheepishly will admit I closed the deal on the car thinking it was sold soon after the build date
of 4/15. But it didn't sell until 9/15, so I believe this will be under warranty.

I was about to load the car in my buddies car trailer for the trip to the dealer in Ottawa and the screen
would no longer open/close on its own!

I guess the cleaner used in the detailing dried out?

One week in, love the car!
