    Got it, Thanks! The annoying message is gone now.

    How to turn off the “Maintenance Service Required” message

    OK, I've been searching the forum for an hour and I can't find anyone explaining how to access the Diagnostics menus. It seems like it's something everyone but me knows how to do. Apparently there's a PIN for it, but I can't figure out how to be prompted for it. The wrench button reveals...

    Coyote vs. Roadster - Some Lessons Learned

    🤣 I can laugh about it now that it's good as new. After I went back to the accident scene, on the way home I saw more dead coyotes in the northbound lane, making me think they were a pack that was chasing one-another. No roadrunners!

    Coyote vs. Roadster - Some Lessons Learned

    Thanks Lou - Sad to hear about Watertown not being an option anymore. Once they loose their one guy whose been there since the beginning, they lose the capability that's essential to us. South Connecticut is a long tow truck ride if something serious goes wrong. Hope to see you out there!

    Coyote vs. Roadster - Some Lessons Learned

    I was heading to golf early one warm morning in November, doing about 75 in the left lane of Interstate 495 in Mass, when this dog-like thing came rocketing out of the grassy median right in front me. I didn't even have time to twitch. I felt the thud, then began to hear the crackling of carbon...

    Today's Roadster Orphan

    2010 Tesla Roadster | eBay This listing describes #938 as "4WD". Pretty sure it isn't! I do like the non-metallic paint though.

    Wow! That's how they posted the result. Is that a record, even for when they were new?

    Error 56 and 1496, PEM Fault. Tow Mode Not Working

    I had the same error a few months ago, and my Tesla SC was able to find me a new PEM, probably from all the old Roadsters that are being traded in and cannibalized. Not cheap, so prepare yourself for that. Gruber is probably less expensive, and I might have more faith in his rebuild over...

    Porsche -Tesla Ride today

    I own both these cars. I intended to sell my Boxster when I bought my Roadster, but I didn't expect the Roadster to make me appreciate the Boxster more. The Porsche is a lot slower as almost all ICE cars are, but I didn't appreciate the time engineers spent on the little things until I drove a...

    Fantastic restoration! Strange that it had a wheel from a Pontiac Solstice.

    iPhone X Mount?

    I haven't tried one of these yet, but Carl used a 3-D printer to create a wedge for the under dash tray that supports a phone mount. Other solutions are included there also. Link to that thread is below: better roadster phone mount
