Just curious if anyone else has seen their handles flashing?
They do not fully illuminate.
The car is unlocked in the garage looks like everything is asleep but the handles flash once about every 20 seconds

Thanks

I would bet at some kind of warning feature for voltage or the security system. Sorry not very helpful but try googling and see if you come up with anything on the interwebs

Thats very odd. Never heard that one. Please let us know what you find out. I had a (kind of) similar issue with a used car I bought once. It would randomly flash the parking lights. Turns out it had an aftermarket alarm system and one of the remote fobs was faulty and would randomly trigger the lock/unlock button. After removing the fob battery it was fixed. The cars door or front door isnt locking or unlocking when the handles light up correct? I dont think they light up any other time.

Haven't done anything with this yet . left for vacation, hopefully it fixes itself lol..
Doors are not locking/unlocking.
And no aftermarket alarm.
I do have a fob with a low battery I'll un plug and test next week

I replaced the car battery within the last 6 months.
Could be bad, good idea
I've bought new batteries before, and they were done in mere months. Defective. Especially with QC down the drain due to Covid.

So as far as I can tell that little flash in the door handles only happens when the car is locked.

At this point it doesn't seem to been enough of a draw to keep the car from starting (even after sitting for 3weeks).
Car battery tested good and I really don't know if I want to leave it with a dealership and have them monkey with it lol
