 Description of the problemStarted vehicle after i ran errands and got about 500 yards before vehicle displayed serious electrical issues. The electrical issues included the windshield wipers running when the windshield wiper control was set to off, displaying a warning that the driver side seat belt was not latched when the seat belt was latched, displaying a low engine fuel warning when there was over half a tank of gas, displaying a warning for low tire pressure when the tire pressure was okay. Prior to this incident the vehicle has on occasion been difficult to start, acting as if it was not getting enough fuel or the battery was low. Eventually the vehicle engine would engage after several turns of the ignition switch. This is the second time since purchasing this brand new vehicle that we have had electrical issues. The first time the computer had to be rebooted in the vehicle. This time may require the same thing. When i spoke with the dealers service representative, he stated that it could be possible for the computer to turn off the vehicle when experiencing this type of computer malfunction. He said that it might require the driver to coast to a stop. Seems as if this scenario, would pose a serious danger or threat to both the occupants of the vehicle and surrounding vehicles that could result in death or injury.
