Improper interventions in the vehicle electrical system
External devices (e.g., navigation equipment, head up displays, etc.) connected to the diagnostic socket can impair the function of the vehicle systems.
Loose devices or hanging cables in the driver footwell
Loose devices or hanging cables in the driver’s footwell can impair the free movement of the pedals or catch between the pedals when braking or changing direction.
If external devices (e.g., navigation equipment, head up displays, etc.) are operated from the diagnostic socket while the ignition is switched off, the battery will be discharged. If the vehicle is parked for an extended period, the battery can run down fully and be damaged (exhaustive discharge).
