asked by on

The car has a low mileage of around 29,000 miles. I've been experiencing some electrical issues lately. I had the battery checked and it is properly charged. The main issue is with startup. The dash has been showing a warning, which indicates that the key isn't being recognized by the car. There has also been some problems with the windows and doors malfunctioning from time to time. Occasionally, I wouldn't be able to unlock the doors or the windows wouldn't roll down. What could be done concerning these issues?
