I had a problem last year with my Prado where each time the HF APRS
transmitted it would cause the climate control to go haywire. Ray Wells,
VK3TV suggested getting earthing braid straps and bonding the chassis to
the body to the bonnet to anything else that is floating.  I have to
admit that I was sceptical at first but It sorted it a treat. 

But do late model Commodores even have a chassis? :-)
