Highlander Hybrid

  • 905 miles
The vehicle is designed to continue to charge the batteries even after the key is no longer in the proximity of the vehicle. This could result in a safety issue when the vehicle is parked in a garage - generating co and also potentially overheating. Propose the vehicle control logic will shutdown the vehicle after a designated period following the key not being in proximity. (it makes little sense for the vehicle to continue to operate if it has been stationary for an extended period of time without the key in proximity). Suitable logic could be installed for the driver to override if required (in the case of a breakdown, stranded in inclement weather etc.).
