Dealer is my guess. Bad sensor somewhere? Maybe reset the car by disconnecting the battery for 15 min?

I'm not sure that is good advice. I thought from reading other threads, that after a battery change (or disconnection), there are many items on the car that need to be reset. By disconnecting the battery, the OP may be in a worse situation than he is currently.

Sorry, but I never really understand these threads. If the car is under warranty, then take it for warranty service and have it repaired correctly. That is why you are provided a warranty.

Ok then. Maybe you can tell the OP what "good" advice is then other than the dealer? I figured all that he may lose is his preset radio stations and he might have to pair his phone again. That's why I hate all the damn computers in cars these days. Too many things can go wrong. Love my 57 Chevy pickup. The only thing made of plastic is the distributor cap. I'd rather replace the points versus a whole electronic ignition system of something were to go wrong. If he's worried about getting "MIXED" advice then maybe he should bypass the forum and just call the dealer. I was explaining what I would do if I were in that scenario. He doesn't have to follow if he doesn't want to.

I was just pointing out there could be some risk, that's all. Of course, he can choose whatever he wants to do. When I have a problem with my vehicle under warranty, I don't fool around and try to fix it myself -- I let the dealer take responsibility for any actions -- it's on them, not me.
