Yes that is it exactly. i like the idea of a switch also, but this will do what i want--drive around in B and N using just one slot. i wanted to have either max power and braking, or coasting, with just one short shift.
No button, no soldering, no relays, no cost, and easily reversed back to OEM config.
Drove the car in to town and it worked great, just as expected.
Later in the hot afternoon on the way home something tripped out and it threw the RBS, ! HV, Aux Battery, ASC lights and then went into Turtle, and the gear position on the fuel gauge was blinking. Stopped and restarted to READY and drove home with no more drama.
Not sure what tripped it, but i may have been shifting to N really fast while the regen was really high in B mode. i will test it some more, probably drive without the rapid shifting B-N-B-N, and then try to get it confused again. Checked the aux battery, 2 yrs old, measured 13.11 OCV, added some water to all the cells, those closest to the terminals were slightly lower than the rest.
Shifting to N while at max regen is probably a dumb move--there is a lot of energy stored up in the rotating magnetic field that will need to be dissipated, and blowing up the MCU would increase operating and repair costs beyond any benefit from this mod...
