Well, the switches need to be replaced on the hatch. I think that one may have been intermittent for awhile, and the computer indicated that the battery was shot, so they replaced the battery, too. Unfortunately, not unexpected, they had to order the switch assembly. I think it may have been triggering the computer into getting ready to open the hatch, or that it wasn't fully closed, and this put a drain on it. The parking/emergency brake switch was bad a couple of days after I picked the car up in Munich...maybe just a bad day for switches? Anyway, hopefully, it'll come in while I'm here, otherwise, they'll have to send the switch to a dealer closer to home (I'm away) to be replaced when I get back. Was hoping to get it fixed sooner, but it is what it is. They recalibrated the auto hold braking function (it was getting a little abrupt) and flushed the brake system (it's coming up on two years, maybe a little early, but hey, I was there).
