Wk2 SRT electrical issues

Well the big fella is having a bad day:
- not recognising key fobs
- tyre pressure service lighting up (no flats so this is wrong)
- alarm goes off until you restart it
- Central locking or unlocking not working
- starts then loses key fob and beeps relentlessly
- after stop won't start again

Had roadside assist see it. Did a battery reset and no fix. Into dealer tomorrow. Done 5000kms.

Hopefully it gets fixed and it's something small.
Thanks

That is quite a healthy list of problems. Did all these problems came to light all in the same day?

Yeah all in one go. Should all be related. So whatever the issue is should have cause all those problems.
Not happy though, brand new car

Whether this applies to you or not, a loose ground in a vehicle's 12V electrical system can cause weird behavior such as yours. That's probably where I would start.

Have you done anything recently like drive through a large pool of standing water, went off-roading, updated your uconnect firmware, or etc. just before you got this cluster of problems?

Nah nothing at all. It's summer here too so no random pools of water to drive through.
Hopefully dealer will fix quickly today
