Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

Repeatedly Locks without being prompted by fob

My 2010 Forester will randomly lock/make the armed confirmation sound after I park, remove my keys and exit the vehicle. I have a head light out (right hand) and have seen that is a common factor in similar problems.Could this be the source of my issue? I have unhooked the battery and it stopped after I hooked it back up. the problem returns days later. I couldn't find ant blown fuses.

    Why don't you try a spare key that has no fob, or temporarily take the battery out of your fob--just to see if the fob itself is the issue.

    I tried that also.

    Could a loose/ corroded terminal cause this problem

    Why don't you replace the headlight now?

    Yes, loose, corroded terminals and bad grounds can cause problems.
