    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    I haven't been in this thread in a while, but it is coincidental that last night when shutting everything down to go to bed, I heard the Tesla in the garage. I opened the door and the fans must have been at 100%. Keep in mind, at this point it was probably 78% SOC (was charging to 80 and it...

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    Just another satisfied customer of Tony and EVFixMe. My '15 85D was acting as if it was on its last leg, so I shipped it off to Tony. He texted when he received it (which was nice) and turned it around in only a few days. My only issue wasn't with him but USPS. Because of the pandemic, they...

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    Just to make sure I understand, the 12v trickle charger needs to be connected in all cases right? Even if you are reconnecting the MCU while waiting on the EMMC replacement?

    Preventive eMMC replacement on MCU1

    Mine hasn't failed, yet. Its showing all the signs (rebooting, laggy, audio tracks get stuck and skipping). I wonder if I could file one even though it hasn't officially failed yet? If enough complaints pile up, maybe we can force their hand on a recall.

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    Just a follow-up. I thought it was going to be a common battery heater/cooler issue that I have seen others with these alerts. However after no updates they finally texted and said no diagnosis yet and they are involving engineering. Hmm.

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    Mine's at the SC right now for "Car needs service, may not restart" and "Acceleration and top speed reduced" errors. I was hoping for the magical "Battery charge level reduced" or whatever it is. Sounds like a battery heater issue. Probably out of warranty. Sinking more money into this car...

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    2015 85D 125k miles. Battery capped and charging throttled. Good God it's borderline unusable for any trip requiring a supercharge session. Pulled up at 37%. Battery fully warm (90 min drive to here). Outside temp 60 degrees F. No shared charger. Maxed out at 62kw, and started to fall...

    Model S85D slow at supercharger

    Just throwing another data point in there. '15 85D with abysmal supercharging rates now. I don't SC often, but the other night I did and with just 15% on a warm battery (cold night though) and I think it topped out at 65 kw, then quickly came down. This is borderline unusable on road trips...

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    As an original owner of a 2015 85D with 121,000 miles (a chargegate and batterygate victim), after seeing some people online indicate that their account now says 8 year, 120k mile battery warranty instead of original unlimited miles I went to check mine. It now says 120k miles. They can't do...

    Is this real? I mean. This feels like a prank.

    Tesla Cybrtrk

    Well I was wrong....it's 99% weird.

    Tesla Cybrtrk

    Totally agree. Back in 2015 when I had my Model S, I was able to talk to 100% of people. Progressive minded all the way to global warming is a hoax minded. Even some in my own family who made it rich in Oil & Gas and think the California lefties are as crazy as they come, when he saw it and...

    Tesla Cybrtrk

    Gonna go in and agree with those saying they are nervous about the design. Sigh. I'm SUPER in the market for a pickup and would snatch this up in a second if the design isn't bonkers. I'm out in rural Texas where every other vehicle is a Chevy, Dodge or Ford. If we're going to convert those...

    Collision, Repair and DV/LoU Lawsuit: My Nearly 500 Days of Fun

    Well one of the main quibbles the OP had was with the DV, which is always going to be handled directly with the other party's insurance carrier. You won't ever get DV from your own insurance company. So the initial total or not total question may have been handled the better (or the same) with...
