    Current Sensor

    Anyone know why there is a current sensor around the negative battery cable? What's that used for?

    Thx.

    That's good info. Thanks. It cracks me up that they have such a complicated system for charging and monitoring the battery, but the batteries in these cars still only last 3 years!
