That does seem awfully crazy. I have traced electrical problems in a car before and it can be difficult. When my friend's car would hit a bump, a fuse would blow. Turned out one of the wires to a running light had a nick in the wire. When he hit a bump the wire would sometimes hit the bumper, short out the circuit and blow the fuse. Took a while to figure out since the short only happened when he hit a bump.
I wonder if there will be any dealers that will indirectly sabatoge the Volt because the dealer is not a fan of EVs or some other crazy reason.
