During the fast charging process or the preparation for the fast charging process, the infotainment processor ("CPU ") may not cool sufficiently to avoid higher than expected temperatures. This can cause the CPU to slow down or restart processing. Slowed or restarted processing can cause the middle screen to appear laggy or blank. A sluggish or blank center screen display may in turn result in the unavailability of the rear view camera display, driving modes (Drive, Neutral, or Reverse) and indicator lights, increasing the risk of a collision.
