I used to have that problem in my (VR) commodore - had to go remote  
heads and move everything to the boot, as otherwise she'd cause probs  
for the BCM, and shut down the engine..  Of course, hitting transmit  
on 2m at 50W while passing pretty much any VN-VS commodore on the  
highway will cause their engine to die until you're a car length or so  
past them..

The Fiance's Astra (05 model) has no problems with my D7 sitting on  
the dash.. Haven't actually tested anything in my VT wagon yet.. (Of  
course, the old diesel hilux didn't care about it ;) )

We rode on the winds of the rising storm,
  We ran to the sounds of thunder.
We danced among the lightning bolts,
  and tore the world asunder
