      Anyone ever have their T8 just completely shut off while driving?

      I drove down the block and stopped at a stop sign today and the car just completely shut off. Was so odd you could hear everything power down in an instant. I just turned the ignition switch and everything came back on. No error lights or messages. Was very surprising. Anyone else ever experience this?

      I’ve experienced mine’s Sensus restart a handful of times mod drive. About half of those the DIM would also reboot (going completely dark then coming back along with Sensus booting up). In fact this weekend, as approached the end of our street as I was leaving home Sensus and the DIM Bothel rebooted. It changed drive modes from Individual back to the default Hybrid and the DIM was momentarily in the default display mode vs. Sport display (red) Mode. It all restored back to my custom settings and I had to switch back to Individual for drive mode. This was only the 2nd time that in the reboot my drive mode changed which also alters my ride height as part of the reset.

      Odd, mine has all the latest soft ware installed, infact it was just done about 2 months ago.

      different situation, my car died out completely like someone disconnected all power.
