Just so everyone knows this an option if the situation suits them.

I've driven the car with the traction battery physically removed for a week with much success. 12 volt charged by itself with some hardware mods. But if i'm correct, IT WILL NOT LEAN BURN without the traction battery for some reason. If i didn't need to pass inspection once a year i would leave it out. An option would be to "borrow" a friends healthy pack once a year for inspection. Of course doing this will not help your traction battery's health at all.

I have a feeling no one has spoofed a fake HV battery circuit because that would pretty much kill the market for gridchargers and aftermarket hybrid batteries.
I try to be helpful. I'm not an expert.
