The effects of EMI have proven costly and impossible to duplicate since its discovery. With billions upon billions of signal combinations possible through the myriad wiring circuits lumped into wiring harnesses in the average car testing is not economically feasible. The automotive industry refuses to follow in the footsteps of other industries and design out the potential for EMI up front.

Why do you mention HAARP? It can only broadcast to within 30 degrees of vertical, directly above it.
Principal instruments installed at the HAARP Research Station include a high power, high-frequency (HF) phased array radio transmitter (known as the Ionosphere Research Instrument (IRI), used to stimulate small, well-defined volumes of ionosphere, and a large and diversified suite of modern geophysical research instruments including an HF ionosonde, ELF and VLF receivers, magnetometers, riometers, a UHF diagnostic radar and optical and infrared spectrometers and cameras which are used to observe the complex natural variations of Alaska's ionosphere as well as to detect artificial effects produced by the IRI. Future plans include completion of the UHF radar to allow measurement of electron densities, electron and ion temperatures, and Doppler velocities in the stimulated region and in the natural ionosphere using incoherent scatter techniques.
Since the sun's radiation creates and maintains the ionosphere, sudden variations in this radiation such as those caused by solar flares can affect the performance of radio systems. Sometimes these natural changes are sufficient to induce large transient currents in electric power transmission grids, causing widespread power outages. Lightning is known to cause substantial heating and ionization density enhancement in the lower ionosphere, and there are indications that ground-based HF transmitters, including radars and strong radio stations, also modify the ionosphere and influence the performance of systems whose radio paths traverse the modified region
To the OP - I think this is something that the automakers certainly know and are just biding time until it can be proven. Until then I'm sure the "acceptable loss policies" are in full swing.
The problem can't be fixed.

I honestly think they are not telling the truth. HOWEVER, I did find one flaw with the video. The Tach shot showing RPM's revving was faked.
As you can see, the BRAKE indicator and Door Ajar and Seatbelt icons are lit.
I am a video editor by trade and it would seem logical to shoot this as a "cutaway" after the fact and edit it back in. But I felt compelled to share. Makes you wonder who to believe. There was another TV News show exposed some years ago for a similar stunt.
