    NHTSA asks Tesla to recall 158,000 [now 135,000] vehicles for eMMC failure. Voluntary Recall issued

    I had a "Replace MCU Touchscreen Panel" done 9/2019 due to the glue leakage issue-- would this replace this faulty chip or does mine still need to be recalled?

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    Are the fans the constant high pitched humming noise? My s85 has been doing that for at least several weeks when charged to 90%- at least when it is plugged in and in the garage. I changed my daily SOC to 60% and I no longer hear the buzz.

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    From the wiki calculation my battery capacity is 74162 aka 74 KW. Not as bad as I feared but still annoying. Hopefully stabilized now time will tell.

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    Ok this was my recent road trip to Katy & back which wasn't a problem with max charge. From my napkin math if 52.7 KW used results in 18% capacity remaining that means I have roughly 62.18 KW storage available in my 85 kw battery correct? So roughly 28% loss? And yes I know that even new the...

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    Mine was limited in the summer, improved for a bit, and recently was slapped down again. Pretty typical for S85 from the 2014 time frame seems like.

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    I finished morning clinic early so I went home and plugged in. It stalled out at 98% then dropped to 97% but no change in max range looks like. I took my Boxster to the meeting so I will have range tonight but this situation is very frustrating and the lack of information from Tesla is...

    Supercharger - Katy, TX

    Ugh I really need this done with the recent battery capping my car is suffering from. This would make the Aggieland - Katy round trip a breeze. It is getting to be a stretch over the last 6 weeks with my range dropping from 255 to 244 due to software limitations.

    Oh I also just installed the new update so will let you guys know. This is like the 3rd or 4th update in a month.

    This is my dash yesterday with pretty severe limitations worse than I have ever seen. You can see it is a "cold" 50 degrees in Texas and even after driving > 10 miles @ 75 mph it has my regen and max limited. Just awful. I charged to max today and reads 245 (new 265- a month ago 255). This may...

    Ug I guess I have to actually make a Twitter account, I've been avoiding it for years.

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    Ok with the most recent update my previously recovered range is gone again (March 2014 S85). My max charge seems to be around 247 when original was 265 and most recent recovery was 257ish. Also when max charging there is a constant electric buzzing/humming in the garage.

    V10 on MCU1

    I got a new screen due to bubbles the same day V10 downloaded but it seems much sharper and quicker. Web browser works well and loads full web pages. I am really enjoying the spotify as I have never really messed with it and like all the features and playlists to explore. No movie stuff but it...

    Bubble formed on screen ... :(

    Mine is getting the new screen in a few days, $1400 out of warranty with roamer. I have ceramic UV absorbing tint and have had overheat protection on from whenever it was added. Annoying. Seems like it should be a service bulletin as common as it seems to be on 2012-2015 cars.

    V10 on MCU1

    I actually logged into my dormant Spotify account and made some playlists just in case Tesla blesses my "old" car with this update. If nothing else I can use it with my android auto radio in my 2008 Boxster.

    bubbles on touchscreen

    Yes. However that feature wasn't added to the vehicle until it was a few years old. Let me see if google knows when. Nope cannot find exactly when it was added but I know it was not present for at least two years (2014-2016). My bubbles appeared rather suddenly while parked in the garage...
