Well, the Z is back over at the dealer. This time I went to the service
manager and vented. He was "shocked". I hope so. Now the check engine
light is on and the traction control doesn't seem to be working. It has
been one computer controlled device problem after another. I told him it's
time to replace the computer and he said, "which one?" There's one for
every system he said. I figured there was one that ran the whole car.
As I was checking the car in at the service desk, a "kid" (25 year old
computer geek) came in and told us there was a new bulletin on battery
draining problem. Then a couple of hours after I left the dealer they
called to ask me what gear I parked it in. Well, it's reverse, which per
Dad's post below, was only an issue in 2005.
I told them to keep the F**
cking (I starred for Arnie) car all week and put
the geek on it non stop as I'm pissed. Haven't heard from them today.
I'll report as I know more.
