    Have they tried to power off the car, or suggest anything you can do to power it off? Sounds a bit dangerous as things stand...

    Does the car charge, the way I stopped the HVAC, was to disconnect the fireman's loop & 12 volt battery & to re-connect.
    There is a fuse you can pull, which one I don't know.

    Time to let the ACCC know. Maybe Tesla will offer a discount for the MCU2 upgrade, once the recall occurs here

    If there's a recall by US regulators, does that mean that Tesla will apply it worldwide or just to cars in the USA?

    Considering Tesla stubbornly waited for the NHTSA to issue the recall, don’t expect them to act of their own volition here

    Past performance suggests tesla will be pro-active, although they are a much larger company now.....so who knows.
