A couple days ago, I noticed that my car was starting in Street mode, rather than my Custom mode. Figuring it was just a glitch in the matrix that caused the setting to get changed, I went to access the Tazer menu and found I couldn't pull it up.
"Oh no biggie, my spirited driving must have knocked something loose."
Unfortunately that wasn't the full problem. I have a 2018, which necessitates the use of the bypass which hooks the tazer directly to the battery. When I opened up the trunk I saw this:
There was small puddle of water in the battery compartment of the trunk, and the end of the Tazer was sitting in it.
I took it apart and attempted to dry it out and clean it. The rust and water seems to be limited solely to the small port. Virtually the entire circuit board is still mint.
It cleaned up well, and looks almost good as new, but alas, it doesn't work anymore.
Oh well, at least the non-live features, like track mode and eco mode, are still accessible. But I guess if I want to enjoy the live features again, I'm gonna have to spend another $300 on a new one.
And now a related question: Should I ever want to, is there anyway to restore the factory settings now? The device was married to my car with the factory setting saved to it. If I buy a new Tazer, how would it be possible to save the factory settings to it if I cant restore them with the old one?
