If there are complaints for these vehicles that the battery is empty or that the vehicle will not start, a possible cause could be partly incorrect installation of the interior lights cable harness.
Due to improper installation of the interior light cable harness (under the bracket of the additional interior mirrors for the rear seating area), the cables may have been pinched and damaged. Consequently, there is the possibility for a short circuit or fault current.
In this situation, repair and optimise/properly install the interior light cable harness or replace it, if necessary.
