    Both HID low beam lights failed at the same time...

    Ok. I feel silly. I checked the fuses and they were blown. But looking closely and stuff... The Roadster Owner's Manual has very different fuse specifications than the fuses which were installed and the small door has fuse values which match what was installed. I hate finding contradictory...

    Help!!! Girlfriend is on the road in #410 and gets Charging Aborted: Service Required

    I would say have her drive to Fremont service and take a Lyft or something home. Switching to range mode might get a few more miles. Maybe to San Rafael service also. (Is that the destination?) Hypermiles? Stay under 40 MPH. With my 2.x I had this error. It was a fuse in the PEM that was easy to...

    Open Vehicle Monitor System (OVMS) - Technical Discussion

    I have a Google Fi data-only sim and I've tried to get it to work. Sometimes it shows "Google Fi" as a provider. I set the APN to "h2g2" but it does not work. What web searching I've found is inconclusive. There is some mention of an APN of "h2g2-T" and "h2g2-t" and other stuff. Some people say...

    Open Vehicle Monitor System (OVMS) - Technical Discussion

    Probably the easiest way to get 3.3.001 now for an older (v3.1 or v3.2 board) is to go to firmware/flash from web and change the word 'main' or 'eap' into 'edge'. I just did that for my old 3.1 board via this uri: api.openvehicles.com/firmware/ota/v3.1/edge/ovms3.bin I understand that the 3.1...

    Open Vehicle Monitor System (OVMS) - Technical Discussion

    Quite a bit of investigation has occurred and it seems that not having the GPS part of the cellular modem enabled is causing the crashes. The Roadster OVMS uses GPS from the car instead of the OVMS cell modem. If you enable the GPS from the cellular configuration that might fix the problem. It's...

    Open Vehicle Monitor System (OVMS) - Technical Discussion

    You are on the 'eap' thread/release cycle... We're in a strange place where 'stable' is newer than 'eap'. I tried 'eap' and had the problem. Also, 'eap' didn't have a proper dashboard information via the web access. I would suggest downloading the stable release but I don't think that will...

    Both HID low beam lights failed at the same time...

    Both my left and right HID low beam lights are being reported for checking by my 2.x Roadster. It seems that the car is choosing to run the high beams automatically and not showing that on the dash. I've noticed no difference if I turn on the high beams (other than the dash indicator appears.)...

    TPMS Sensors

    My 2.x Roadster is needing at least one TPMS sensor replaced. Tesla service is a pain for me. I've found the following which looks like a good compatible replacement. Anyone tried these Huf sensors. One thing I like is that they have black metal as an option which I think would go nicely with my...

    Open Vehicle Monitor System (OVMS) - Technical Discussion

    I got my new 3.3 Module with 3.3 modem and have yet to get the modem to work. It all works with my home WiFi network with the modem turned off. But when I turn on the modem (I'm using Hologram BTW) in a couple minutes it crashes. Looking in the logs, it seems that the ppp is coming up just...

    2010 Roadster 2.5 shaking at high speeds

    I now have my tires worked on by a racing shop. Roger Kraus Racing – – Lead Bay Area Supplier for Racing Tires I'm really pleased with the smoothness of the ride at speed. They were very attentive to detail.

    The Wrecked Roadster Registry

    Picked up my car from the SC today. Took more photos. Confirm it's 1218 in silver. The Rep confirmed that 75 is Tesla's for parts. Here's 1218, it was really hard to see inside. The rest are 75. Several people wanted more photos so... I just have to say I felt a little emotional about taking...

    The Wrecked Roadster Registry

    While dropping my car off for service at the San Rafael location I walked around and found three roadsters which certainly seem lost. They all have a lot of dirt on them. Vins are 75 (in back, no roof), 718 (getaround), and 1218 (white) I got closer to the 75.

    New Tires should not be this difficult (broken lug nut tool)

    It's a "D" on the lock key. Maybe if soneone has an immediate need for this.

    New Tires should not be this difficult (broken lug nut tool)

    So my 12v battery needed replacement and my tires were pretty well worn so putting in some work on the Roadster seemed required. It took over a month of stops and starts. I'll just hit the high points here... * TireRack took three weeks and a difficult chat with their customer service because...

    Open Vehicle Monitor System (OVMS) - Technical Discussion

    I've been having a LARGE increase in data usage the last couple weeks. Looking at the hologram dashboard I'm using about 5 times as much data as normal. I've had long stretches where there is no OVMS server from the app during this time also. Some days use like 8 Mbytes of data. I'm sure...
