    I have limited information right now as I am at work right now. My wife called saying she had some issues with the roadster.
    She was driving when the screen displayed "communication error". She dismissed it and then couple of seconds later it said the same thing along with power reduced.
    She was able to get home but unable to use homelink for some reason so opened the garage with the OVMS. When she got in and turned off the car the screen locked and was asking for a code but she never locked it. She said the OVMS wasn't saying it was locked. It told her to leave it alone and let it charge and then see if anything changes.
    I was curious if anyone has any information about this? Could this be an issue with the OVMS causing problems? I have had the OVMS installed for the last 3-4 weeks with no issue.

    In such cases, I suggest you unplug OVMS and see if the behavior changes.

    It is possible that there is a loose connection on the cabling that causes such issues.
