California Lemon Law?
I'm just doing my homework in case I'm stuck in the worst outcome.
I'm in SoCal, I've brought the car in for the same problem 3 times in the first year. Traction Battery Fault error.
First 'service' time I just had to restart the car, and it went away. Took it to the dealer, with no fix.
It popped up a few times more with no loss of functionality so I did not take it in. Thought it was a software bug.
Second 'service' time it nearly stranded me. I brought it in, but no fix.
Third 'service' time happened only 5 days later, and it totally disabled the car for 45 minutes, it would not move. So it's back at the dealer.
Just in case they tell me again they can't find the problem, what is my next step?
I've never considered doing this, and have no experience with it.
What is published on the web doesn't always reflect the actual procedure.
If any California owners have went through this, could you give me some info?
I pray they find the problem, as I love my car. But if they can't fix a Traction Battery Fault situation that disables the car, I can't use it for its intended duties.
Best car I've owned so far, and I know it CAN be fixed, but if I'm told a 3rd time it's all in my head when I have pictures of the error and witnesses, I need a new steed.
