Follow-up:2018 Clarity Touring: I can't turn the power off on my car. There is a warning light on in the upper right corner for the "Electric Power Steering(EPS) System Indicator." But the manual does not offer instructions on what to do to shut off power. To the car? Any suggestions?
I went back to the car and kept pushing the Power button. It finally turned off. But I can't recall if I had my foot on or off the brake. (One helper thought the car was in "accessory mode," and I should try powering down with my foot off the brake. But, again, I didn't focus on where my right foot was located -- sitting on the floorboard or applying the brake pedal.)
I noticed something else when I went back to try again: the "12-volt battery charging system indicator" was illuminated red. Now, I've been playing "car roulette" with that battery because it's still the original one from December 2017 when I bought the car. (And when I looked at the indicator on the battery itself, there was no blue circle, only white, indicating "needs charging.") If everything starts up in the morning, I'll head to my dealer to see about a new battery.
