Battery died after upgrades.
I just had Apple Car Play installed on my 2018 P380 SE R Dynamic in order to prepare for our family vacation.
I had the car back for 2-1/2 days before my wife and I would take a mini vaca and be gone for a week. The Velar stayed in the garage and when I returned to take it out for a spin, the battery was completely dead.
I jumped it with my truck and let it run for a bit prior to taking it out. While backing it up, multiple issues with power steering and some flashing on the dash.
I didn’t think too much of it and wanted to take it around the subdivision. After 1/4 mile, multiple lights started to flash, jerking in the car, power steering failing, and I tried to loop back to my house. Didn’t quite make it.
Called RR Roadside and had to have the car towed to the dealer. Complete system failure is what I’m being told. Crashed the computer.
Needless to say, I leave for family vacation in five days and my wife isn’t thrilled with taking this car on a 900 mile trek.
Anyone else heard of this issue? Could this be related to the infotainment/Car Play upgrade? Why the dead battery after one week? Only 12,600 miles on this beautiful car that is now leaving a very sour taste in my mouth.
