He said the computers had a hard time dealing with the cold, so strange things were bound to happen. While its not "normal", its not uncommon, hard to replicate enough to require repair, and to just ignore it.
that's odd. My radio used to do crazy stuff too, but when my window motor went out, they had to update the firmware on the radio () and when it failed to update every time, they replaced the radio too. no more weird noises, and my windows work!

when it gets hot out, my passenger seat gives me a seatbelt warning usually goes on about 2 minutes before shutting off. kind of annoying actually.
