We've changed the battery.........it's now brand new......... once i turn on the heat an lights an it does this process & I shut car off, it won't even start AGAIN until it's jumped.....it sounds like a "dead battery"......... We've noticed the "SRS" light has flashed a couple times during the car doing this process too but it does not stay on........

I believe this vehicle has a computer controlled alternator, you need to have this checked out professionally, it could be an ECM causing the whole problem.

Where is it located at
