Drive by wire on a toyota.
The cars can't be turned off cause it would lock the steering, so they die by wire.

Intentional corruption of the term "fly by wire", i.e. an aircraft who's flight control system has no physical link between the pilot's controls and the external control surfaces, relying instead on computers. A complex and malfunction-prone system, leading to a certain background amount of low-level panic amongst those required to fly such aircraft, either as crew or passengers.
