Failed software update turned off electric vehicle
“Unfortunately, a recent software update was not successful,” the screen stated in the image, which was first posted Dec. 19 by a user identified as “HandyMan131.” “Your vehicle cannot be driven.”
It’s all about control
How many other reasons are these corporate overlords going to find to shut down your car remotely? Late on a payment? Shut down. Bought an aftermarket part? Shut down. Had someone other than the dealer make a repair? Shut down. They certainly have the capability to do these things.
Drove too many miles because of climate change regulations? Shut down. Drove in the “wrong” locale (See London)? Shut down. Drove too fast? Shut down. Didn’t put on your seatbelt? Shut down. Missed a toll on the toll road? Shut down. Don’t have a city tax sticker? Yep. You’re done.
Then there is the problem with privacy. Many EV drivers are blissfully unaware that if they make the mistake of utilizing their car’s hands-free phone options and pair their cell phone to their car that the automobile’s computer downloads everything in the phone, including texting data, and stores it on the car’s computer. Worse, owners have no option to turn off data collection and also have no option to selectively delete that data except for a complete factory reset of the car’s electronics.
