My 2007 Kia Sportage was sitting in a hot driveway with windows up all day till 3 pm and when I went out to start it, I put the key in the ignition but didn't start it, I just turned the key so I could get the battery on and roll down the windows. All of sudden the locks started locking and unlocking randomly several times, the stereo had no power and the front windows will slowly go up and down, but the rear windows will only barely go down and will not go back up now. A little green light came on on the dash and the battery seems fine--I don't think the battery is the problem....what I'm afraid is that it's an electrical problem caused by the heat?????? What do you say?
