Is that an OnStar feature or something? If it is through OnStar, is there a fuse that could simply be pulled for the day to kill the OnStar?Daughter has 2017 Volt. Abusive husband insists on Family Link to track her movements. If she wants to visit a shelter or a lawyer for an hour to get advise and not be followed, how can she turn off tracking (and turn it back on as she heads back home?)
After some googling it seems as if killing the 4G portion of onstar will do what you're asking.
Anyone know where the 4G antenna is? Or the module? If she kills onstar entirely the pile of **** may get a email or alert that it's having trouble? I'm not sure how they correlate.
x2How about a couple friends visit this husband for an hour....
You sound like a trying father, can you give her a ride or anything?
Indeed. The only three pieces of advice I'm going to give is:That might cause more problems than help. If the abusive husband can't locate the car for an hour, he's going to grill her about it. As Bill said, have a friend, taxi, or Uber take her and have her park at a nail salon for an hour.
Agreed. There is no hardware fix for this problem, get her out of reach before it gets worse.Indeed. The only three pieces of advice I'm going to give is:
1) Assume that the abuser is willing to murder their target rather than lose them.
2) Do _not_ disable anything.
3) Contact an organization that deals with abuse instead of asking an Internet forum.
