    Hello I am new to this forum. I am having big electrical problems where interior lights flicker and the blind spot detection fault comes on then transmission shifts bad. The next warning is low brake oil every time I hit brakes. Then when I get home the truck eventually dies and all electrical is flashing including lights and door locks. If I wait 20 minutes - truck will start and no issues. But seat setting and steering wheel reset. This only seems to happen when driving on highway and upfitter aux lights are on and seat heaters on. Any ideas?
    It’s still under extended warranty

    Sounds like you need to let warranty work on it and try to lemon law it. If you are new to gen 2 raptor, do some research on these.... Not the most reliable problem-free vehicles. You may want to get a gen 1 (tried and true 6.2) or wait for the gen 3 which goes back to a V8. Or, just switch over to the RAM TRX.
