I am almost sick to my stomach, had my 2016 f type 5 weeks and today on my way home the cat freaked out electrically. I first got a message that the gear box had a fault and then so many other issues and warnings started I couldn't process them all on the road. Battery charging failure, blind spot monitoring, and then the engine light came on. The car alerted me to some type of limited performance. It wouldn't go over 60...which was some type of computer enforced mode...lucky I could get off the highway. I was able to get home, i have to take it to the dealer Monday. After it sat for a little bit I restarted it and it was fine....no errors at all. One thing I read is that electrical/computer issues aren't covered under warranty. Does anyone know if that is true? I am starting to go down a pretty ugly path in my mind.

Thx

Something similar happened to me. I have a 2014 jaguar F type transmission light went on that it went off parking brake went on that it went off low battery sign went on I took it to advance auto parts have battery checked and it needed to be replaced. With new battery all those symptoms have gone away. Hope this helps it’s definitely a cheap fix. My battery was about $220
