I have 23000+ miles with no problems.
Jdemo installed in September, only used a half dozen times September and October. No problems.
On Sunday I drove several times. Finally stopped at an ATM, left the power on, but on getting back in the car, I reflexively hit the power button, shutting it off. I immediately turned it back on and got the EV Systems Error, take car to dealer immediately. Went through a power on/power off cycle 4 times to clear the error, but when I put it in gear I got the error again. I had a little bit of motive power, but the car bucked a little like a gas engine that was missing. Then no power. Even the power steering was out. All computer functions on the center stack seemed to be working.
Had the car towed home, recharged the 12V overnight and tried it again on Monday morning. Same thing. Unfortunately I had gotten just enough power to pull out of the driveway, but not enough to get back in. The car is now parked at the curb waiting for a tow tomorrow morning to Carson Toyota.
Is this a drive unit failure?
My warranty is still in effect (6yr, 75K miles) so hopefully it is covered and they will authorize a rental.
The service manager at Carson had never heard of Jdemo
(Tony, you have to advertise better
)Is this going to cause a problem?
I'll keep you guys informed when they diagnose the problem tomorrow.
