    Single DIN Radio Options

    My Roadster has the JVC KD-NX5000 single-DIN navigation head unit installed. The hard drive has died, causing the unit to click incessantly and restart twice when I start the car. My first inclination was to purchase a used replacement and clone a good hard drive for future repairs, and I made...

    EV-CPO.com CPO Consolidator support thread

    When filtering the "trim level" for the Model X, you've only got the option for P90D, P100D, and P100DL. When selecting these options, the P90DL's are filtered out. Any chance you can add that as a filter? I've resorted to adding the 0-60 column and sorting on that to find the...

    Head unit update with volume control buttons

    Did you consider any head units that are equipped with a remote control? Both of the singe-DIN JVC units originally available with the Roadster allow for the use of an IR remote control. It’s be pretty easy to affix some Velcro or a magnet to the remote if you want to mount it somewhere. Are...

    Roadster Service E-Mail

    Oddly enough, the email they listed in the body of the message is not the email that that message came from, nor the email that a trade-in request goes to. I got a reasonable quick response to my trade in email.

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

    I should have asked to keep the original part. I wasn’t confident in the diagnosis, but I wasn’t in a position or mindset to argue. The GPS issue manifested as the inability to locate the car in the OVMS, but the only way to demonstrate the issue in the car was the lack of directional and...

    The screen assembly. Hopefully VDS was the correct TLA.

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

    In the end, this problem set me back over $2k. Service said that the antenna had to be replaced, and then the whole VDS had to be replaced. I have no idea if they figured out how to flash the antenna or if they somehow got a new one with updated firmware. I’m sad to say by schedule didn’t allow...

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

    I just had my annual service on my 1.5 and the date came back wrong with the elevation showing NA. Is this the issue, or did the GPS module fail?

    Trunk wouldn't latch -solved (kind of)

    There were some parts that the technician could access without removing anything, and other parts where he had to remove the trunk and rear bumper. I don’t have the car back yet.

    Trunk wouldn't latch -solved (kind of)

    Mines in the shop right now for this very problem. They’ve replaced so many parts, but the problem seems to be the cable. A bracket appears to have broken, causing increased pressure on the latch release and preventing the latch from resetting. It’s taken 4 months so far to get parts. Hopefully...

    TPMS CONTINUES TO FAIL... [RANT] And they are gonna send people the mars?

    Is that a US signature (out of 100) or a European signature (out of 250). The European signatures should all be 2.x, so it would be compatible.

    less than 200 miles. . .

    Pull the logs and check the cac over time. Also, give it a full charge and drive it down to below 10% in one session (one key turn). Then charge it back up and see if the cac improves. With the weather in the Austin area lately, my cac has been dropping a bit, too. It tends to be cyclical...

    1.5 Roadster Tire Thread

    Has anyone tried the new(?) Yokohama Advan A052’s on the rear? They look to be an update of the A048’s, but with a much increased tread wear rating, 200 instead of 60. That’s better than the AD07’s and the same as the AD08’s. However, the initial tread depth matches the A048’s at 6/32”, which is...
