@fluffy i was typing something up yesterday but forgot to send it
ford and mazda cars between about 2011 and 2017 *really* do not like when you attempt to externally charge the battery while the battery is connected. you won't damage the electronics but they will act... odd, and the car will work as if the battery were completely dead (even if it isnt anymore) until you disconnect the battery for a while and reconnect it
i worked for a company where we installed tracking devices into fleets of vehicles and we had these ones constantly coming in just because their battery died and they blamed our devices for the car refusing to work properly afterwards (even though some of the vehicles brought in turned out not to even have our devices in them in the first place)
will always follow back, , , they/them/their, egocom
