I found similar topics in the older generation but not on the BP.

I tried to start the car today and the error message saying parking brake malfunction and I couldn’t start the car. The starter sounded funny so I decided to jump start the car anyways. After a couple of tries, I was able to start the car bit another error message —battery charging system malfunction came up. I suspect it’a a battery issue. I took the car to the dealership about two weeks ago and they said they updated the software that prevents the 12V outlet to drain batteries issue. Yet, I am not sure if the 12V plug disables power even longer after the car is shut off. Has anyone experienced similar issues?
