A new member brought this to my attention. I'm not sure why the guy did not try turning off the car. Let the sleuthing begin.
The icon would be green if it was set.He's says - as you can see the cruise control is not on? I see the cruise control icon on the driver display.
Yes, if 'set', but being on during a malfunction, hence speed just ratcheting up - his first move would be to turn the cruise control totally off. He probably did - but wanted to make this video - so he turned it back on.The icon would be green if it was set.
I'm pretty sure he's going down a mountain. That would explain the accelerating part. Unfortunately it looks like he has a brake problem too though. Wonder if he tried L.
I'm glad he took an opportunity to document it. Problems can only be solved by engineers when engineers know that problems exist and (preferably) can observe how the vehicle responds to various commands (i.e., braking, shifting, etc.).Press power button twice. Car turns off and slow down on shoulder. Call tow truck. It's that simple, what's wrong with this guy?
He DID shift into N one minute into the video. He shows it on the DIC and on the gear indicator next to the shifter....or shift into N. It's not a real transmission selector after all.
Not with the foot off the gas in D. Should be regen-ing 20+kW at that speed.He's going 81 mph and drawing 4 kW. Going downhill perhaps?
He shows the pedal moving freely when he pumps it multiple times in the video.I wouldn't be surprised if the floor mat is pushed under the accelerator pedal causing it to stick.
Coasting in N always draws more power than while in D.I find neutral could at times draw more current coasting than D does
Really? You really think that? The guy's jamming on the brakes -- that would normally be enough to cancel CC if it's set.his first move would be to turn the cruise control totally off. He probably did - but wanted to make this video - so he turned it back on.
What??? There are trees and cars going by at significant speed outside the car.I'll say this was simply a creep speed or even a standing still, with speedometer malfunctioning.
There was positive power draw shown in the DIC Power Flow display. You don't get that with the car turned off.The Ready light is off - I believe this was standard starting in 2013 (maybe 12i?) and given there is a power use gauge which came along in 2013 - this means the car was already turned off!
Can't rule it out, but that would be a lot of effort to doctor this video -- and for what? If it's some kind of conspiracy to undermine GM, you wouldn't just let it sit on youtube for 4 months with nothing but a few hundred views.I suspect fraud.
