I have seen several people have power/battery issues after doing the battery cable recall. No Idea what the techs are doing but it seems like they often screw something up during the install. How old is your battery?

If you are having issues after rain then I would check your drain plugs ASAP. When they clog water runs into the trunk where the NAV and stereo amps are located. If water takes out the NAV it's $2K+ to fix. There are 4 rubber grommets on the floor of the top storage compartment. From the top closed position, press the top open and let go of the top open button once the top storage compartment lid is fully raised, then check the drains. Pour a little water down each hole with a turkey baster or large syringe. Use a coathanger or thick weed-whacker cord to clean out the drains if water backs up.
