SOS - Crazy electrical problems on 2013 LS - Need ANY advice, please!

Greetings and happy holidays!

I have a 2013 Camaro LS with about 41.K miles.

She has gone crazy and become possessed. Electrical problems!

Some symptoms include:
  • Turn signal creates loud static noise
  • Window controls the radio on and off
  • Changing gears creates flashing Christmas light effects on the radio
  • Air conditioner controlled by stereo volume
  • Seat belt ding may not come on up to 20 minutes randomly
Honestly, there is much more craziness.

She's a nasty girl, stealth profile, Kook's Catbacks and CAI. She definitely growls!
Dealers have been nagging me to get this car for $15 - $17K.

She's at my local dealership NOW for warranty work... GASP!

I don't want to loose her from half jazz mechanics in my area!

Does anyone have any ideas this holiday season, please?!?

THANKS IN ADVANCE!

Computer??

If these things worked before it would seem to not be a wiring issue. There may be an area of the computer or a processor that controls basic car functions that has gone amuck.

If your car is in for warranty I would think they could easily isolate a computer problem.

I am NOT mechanically inclined here. Just a driver.

Any advice is appreciated!

The local mechanic is completely perplexed. Small town area!

THANKS IN ADVANCE!

Battery seems like the popular choice.

They're telling my the battery is good to go. Am I being scammed?

If your battery has died and crazy things have happened can you please confirm?

THANKS IN ADVANCE!

Did you buy it used lately ? Hopefully it did not come from any area that may have been flooded ! I bought a used car in the past and had all kinds of crazy electrical gremlins , after researching found it had been partially flooded and I believe that caused most of my issues . Hopefully not yours though !

NO LUCK after changing out the battery... :-(

Apparently, the master mechanics at Kurtis Chevy are well respected in the area.

Thank goodness for warranty repair services.

PROBLEM SOLVED!

Turns out the center console had feedback interference from SIRUS XM RADIO being outdated.

SPECIAL THANKS to everyone who took the time to respond to my questions. Thanks again!

What exactly was "outdated"? I'm no Heinrich Hertz, but it seems odd that signals over physically wired connections would experience interference of that level from a RF source. Even at 2.3GHz.
