Learning how things break is the best way to learn how to improve them.

I think my controller failed while sitting turned off in the parking lot after I got to work. Weird, I know, but I attribute the failure to thermal cycling and/or vibration. I didn't realize the failure (despite the warnings) until I started the car and pressed the pedal (which closed the main contactor).

If you haven't see it, there's a lot of details in this post, including the root cause and corrective action (ha, stole that buzzphrase from work).
