Intermittent low fuel warning on startup
 
Re: 2019 Buick Encore Sport Touring, approx. 13k miles.



Car purchased in March, and still loving it. But there is one minor fluke which happens sporadically - but it seems to be a little more often lately: When starting the car, there'll sometimes be a quick four-chime sequence with the "low fuel" warning window. It disappears in a few seconds, before the gauges finish their little back and forth, then all is well. This happens with no rhyme or reason, and even when there's a full tank. It'll go days without happening, then - as with today - it's three times in a row.



I've never let it get so low as to pop the warning on its own (I'm one of those who rarely lets my gauge go lower than 1/4 tank, but anyway...). Otherwise, no false alarms while driving. Could this be a computer quirk corrected by a reflash? Or a hint of possible fuel system issues?

I have the same problem!! 2019 Buick Encore Sport Touring erroneous low fuel warning
 
I also have a 2019 Encore Sport Touring and the same problem with erroneous low fuel warning. Mine started 2 months after owning the vehicle.


I also have false seat belt warnings even though I'm actually wearing my seat belt, the reverse gridlines have randomly disappeared and reappeared when I haven't changed any settings, and my reverse collision warning failed.



What other problems do you have?
