Dead Battery then Dead USB Ports...

Recommended Posts

So my 17' with 23K miles battery dies on me last week parked in the middle of a severe rain storm. Called AAA and they jumped it. Went to dealership next morning and they tossed it on the GR8 Battery Tester and the battery was toast. So they replaced it under warranty and off I drive.


Couple of days laster I plug my X iPhone into the console USB ports and nothing, dead. Tried them both. No power, no ApplePlay. The USB's under the armrest and in the back seat however do work. Take it back over to the dealer and they check the fuses and they are fine. So the tech pulls the USB module from the console to check it for moisture (and to make sure I did not dump a drink on it probably) and it's fine. No burn smell. So they order me a new one and put the old one back in the vehicle and guess what, the old one now works again.


Go figure.
