Let's start with the simple stuff. Is your battery fully charged and tightly connected? One time I lazily changed my 2012's battery and left the negative connection loose. I frequently got the three bars of death and other bizarre issues. Tightening that negative did the trick.

Outside of that, I'd also be making sure all of your grounds are secured. Maybe someone can chime in with all of the locations, but I know there's one in the driver footwell on the left, one next to the battery, and I think there's one next to the engine bay.
