    2016SP90D 3000mile w/ AP $115000.

    BTW, their phone number provided traces to a female in a land line in Ohio, for what little it's worth. I would say there's about zero chance the landline left mommy in Ohio, and walked to Fort Wayne like a cell phone could.

    LOL -- haven't we reached a point where this has become a bad joke that perhaps the mods could take care of? Well played, SD_E, well played.

    120v charging cable died

    Works like a dream! Thanks! VERY easy fix (though I tested the new cable before, and after, with a continuity test to be overkill safe, to make sure the correct pins were fed the correct juice, just to be extra safe after fixing/improving). For me, I used a GCFI 9 inch extension with reset...

    WTB: Roadster 110v charger cable. $400 shipped.

    If I could delete this thread I would. I am fixing the cable for the new owner, based on the several threads discussing the design defect of "tesla" 120v cables. I have no interest now in buying a used cable that is going to also quickly fail, due to design defect. Thanks.

    120v charging cable died

    Honestly, my friend, I have to defer to the guys who have debated endlessly the pros and cons of slow, low amperage, charging, versus faster higher amperage charging. All I know is my personal experience, and I notice NO substantial difference in electricity cost, personally, between these two...

    110 Volt plug reset button broken... Can't charge. Help fixing it questions...

    Just moved from my old place where I had the 220v. Never used the 120v. Moved to a place I don't know, so rented until I know it better, and don't want to waste good money giving the landlord an RV nema to use my UMC here. Long story short, sold the car. And of course, per murphy's law, on...

    120v charging cable died

    Yes, Rolf. Had a 220v charger nema installed in my old house I just moved out of so I could use my UMC. Moved to an area I really don't know, so I rented. as much as I despised the 120v charger even before it started acting fussy, i Didn't really want to spend $1.5K+ or whatever on somebody...

    75% Failure Rate with Public (J1772) Charging Stations

    Really sorry for your experience. :/ Only drove outside of range before returning home once. Had to plan it to go to the Barstow, California Koa. I hear they used to let people charge for $10 or whatever, but the owner decided now "you need to rent a space." For my situation, given no other...

    120v charging cable died

    I'm just scratching my head on how inconceivable it is Tesla wasn't quickly aware of a design defect. I use my 220v one. The amount of times I've used the 120v one is, well, less than six. :/ Which parallels how darn quickly it's happened to you. Working now, but I trust this thing no more...

    2011 red Roadster 2.5 Sport. Impeccable condition

    Just for kicks, I went over there to take a look. Yup. Found it and a very long list of checkpoints passed on the car very easily. Funny comment, Mlauto, because, well, it's true, LOL. Oh, great license plate! Well played! ;)

    WTB: Roadster 110v charger cable. $400 shipped.

    Thank you again. Sorry that so many owners are experiencing basically, exactly the same problem, grateful for your sand the teams help toward an incredibly easy permanent fix. :) New owners call what we do, but to me, even not considering radical cost differences, sounds to me like there's a...

    120v charging cable died

    Thank you, everybody, and to the person who directed me here. My roadster boards closed transport within probably hours to new owner, and just like you, 120v had the same symptoms, and wanted to wait until now to spring this on me. ;). It's working now, but I just want it reliable for the new...
