Is this still true if someone turns the car on? Is this essentially a high pedal lockout scenario?

If there's no 12v supply hooked up to the 12v power, the controller will never allow the main contactor to close, since the microcontroller decides when to close that relay. So, it would be impossible to turn the car on.
