    "Special Modes Unavailable"?

    I have a 2017 XE 35T that I bought brand new in August 2018. Earlier tonight I came across something strange. As I was driving (going 50 mph on normal streets) I got a message saying "Special Modes Unavailable" and my car was taken out of the rain/snow mode and put into Showbox Tutuapp Vidmate normal drive settings. I couldn't change it to anything else and kept getting the same message. When I turned off and restarted my car, the message disappeared. To be safe I took a look at the engine but everything seemed good there. I'm a little confused by what happened. Has anyone encountered this? If so, what was wrong?

    I’ve heard a few reports about this issue, seems that to most people it’s a one off that disappears after a restart. If it doesn’t return I wouldn’t worry about it.
