    Key Fob won't lock door

    I have the same problem, and it certainly seems to be one button, and not the whole key or radio link. After Tesla Service charged $95 to decide that they can't repair it, and another $43 to determine that they cannot program my spare key, I decided to use my EE skills to repair. Opening the...

    Caution - Annual Service - Car power-down - GPS issue

    FYI: The Seattle Service Center (SC) is still waiting for a cable like this. I have no idea what they would have charged ($550?) if they'd received a cable before I got tired of waiting (two weeks) and rescued my Roadster. The estimate included $95 diagnostics to look into my complaint of the...

    VehicleLogs file name year shows 2001 and 2002

    Thanks for mentioning that. I'd been assuming that the date on the VDS was correct simply because the time is correct, but I checked today and the year is 2002 on the VDS as well. I've been trying to get an appointment with Tesla Service, so I'll make sure to mention all of this. I'm sure they...

    VehicleLogs file name year shows 2001 and 2002

    The last VehicleLogs file that I pulled with the correct year was 202009190502.tar Since then, I'm seeing file names like 200103161832.tar and 200208092332.tar Is this a permanent error in the Linux system running internally, or is it a matter of setting the date? I've read on this forum about...

    Any early Roadsters with the original battery?

    Could it be possible that the Roadster firmware needs to know the capacity more accurately in order to properly balance the cells? I'm just guessing here because of the rumor that Tesla Motors decided to do a Range charge when servicing. There must have been some benefit. Could it be that Tesla...

    Any early Roadsters with the original battery?

    My understanding is that it's actually bad to *never* Range-charge. I don't know whether the ideal is monthly, or perhaps less often, but you don't want to Standard-charge exclusively. Rumor has it that Tesla would Range-charge any vehicle that came in for service ... at least once they learned...

    Impact of 2nd gen Roadster on 1st gen prices?

    When I purchased my Roadster, I was basically in the market for a Lotus, but refused to buy another gasoline engine. The new Tesla Roadster is not a Lotus, so in my opinion it's just a name. There is no relation between the cars. Of course, many original owners just wanted any electric car...

    Today's Roadster Orphan

    One thing to note is that 180 miles of range is just in standard mode. This VIN 0996 probably still charges to 225 or more in Range Mode. Not a very knowledgeable description to leave out that detail. The CAC of 148.78Ah tells even more of the story.

    Any record of which VIN were test-driven in Bellevue before production?

    https://xconomy.com/seattle/2008/09/26/test-driving-the-tesla-roadster-and-glimpsing-the-future-of-electric-cars/ This confirms my recollection that there was no shifting. But the gear shift was visible, so I don't know why the author says "no stick shift" - maybe he meant the verb sense, not...

    Any record of which VIN were test-driven in Bellevue before production?

    Anybody remember the date? I could possibly find out if I haven't deleted the emails from that time. DRIVE SLOT TIMES Friday September 26th, 2008 5:00PM 6:00PM Saturday September 27th, 2008 9:00AM 10:00AM 11:00AM 12:00AM 1:00PM <- my time slot Sunday September 28th, 2008 9:00AM 10:00AM...

    Any record of which VIN were test-driven in Bellevue before production?

    by the time I got in the car, the 2-speed was locked into low. I recall them suggesting that I not change gears because it might not go back. Thunder Gray seems right. I recall it wasn't bright. I was one of the last test drivers, and I convinced them to let me take my Honda S2000 around the...

    Any record of which VIN were test-driven in Bellevue before production?

    I fondly recall signing up for a test-drive of a Tesla Roadster in Bellevue. This was held in the parking lot of a Sears store that had been closed for some time. I didn't know anything about VP or other VIN numbering schemes at the time, but now I'm wondering whether anyone has a record of...

    Why do you recommend wrap over dip?

    Anyone pull VehicleLogs in 2021?

    My own macOS software. It's available in another thread on the forum.

    Anyone pull VehicleLogs in 2021?

    Thanks! I recall reading about this here on the forum, but somehow thought I'd escaped.
