Every car is like that and will have even more as we move along. The
good news is, when they work they do a fantastic job of controlling
the engine,, stability control, shifting. etc.
What many people do not know, is most everything else is computer
controlled. Switches, in many cars no longer operate lights. They
send a command to the computer asking the lights be turned on and the
computer sends a signal to a relay and they go on. I was reading where
some cars will not longer have standard wiring, but CAT5 cable
I also read that all the new "remote enabled" features in cars allows
hackers to pwn the shit out of your car from a Starbucks WiFi hotspot
and drive your ass off a cliff or disable your breaks. Computers, fun!
