New car and mad electrics

Well as some of you will know mum wasn't happy in her old car after two accidents one that included a lorry driving into the side of my mums car with my mum, my sister, my nephew, and I in the car. So her and my dad decided it was time for a new car so mum started looking on the internet and decided that she quite liked Nissan. To start with she liked the X-trail but soon decided that she preferred the Nissan QashQai (I swear that's hard to spell). So the day after she had found one we liked we drove up to check it out and make sure she really liked it  and she did, so a week ago (just before all the snow came) my mum, brother and I drove up to fetch it and it is such a comfy car and the plus side Mum's going to be able to pull a horse trailer but we will come to that later.

Mum decided that with my brother being a huge bike fan and taking his £2000 bike everywhere, as well as mum needing to take his mates and their bikes places, that she was going to get a bike rack, this was a huge accomplishment for me to because to do this mum decided that she wanted a bike rack that attaches to a tow bar :) which means that mum is officially going to be able to tow a horse box when I have my own horse so excited!!!!! But the car didn't come with a tow bar so mum had to get one fitted so on monday we booked it in to be done and it took five hours and was finished by the end of the day. 

Then on the way back the radio literally started having a mind of it's own, it was tuning its self, changing stations, clicking like when you press it but no one was pressing it, and if you tried to stop it then that just made it even worse. So mum booked it in to go back to where the tow bar was fitted because our logic was they've done something with the electrics and thats affecting it. So mum and I sat for two hours with nothing to do and in the cold work shop, the next day while they went over all there wearing and it was all right. Strange! Then we discovered that any where on the centre panel below the radio, above the radio, by the hand break, by the gear stick if you even touched it, it triggered off the whole radio thing and the same happens if you went over a bump. They then found wiring that was disconnected at both ends and was going no where, but it was still attached to the loom of the car. Then something even weirder turned up, while the electrician was looking at the car (its an automatic) they found a third pedal hmmm odd, and when the third pedal came down the accelerator went up and it was still attached to the engine :S. Now surely this is dangerous? You could accidently lower the left pedal switching where the accelerator is think your pressing the break and your not your accelerating, it could cause an accident. So mum rang where we got the car up from and to cut a long story short, we've got a hire car and her car is back at the garage attempting to sort out the mess that is the electrics.
