    Alert warning: "Vehicle may not restart. Service is required" Code BMS_a035. "Electrical ...."

    Now this problem changed to "Vehicle is Shutting Down: Pull Over Safely". I think I will ask Tesla to test drive it for a couple of days before I pick it up this time.

    Alert warning: "Vehicle may not restart. Service is required" Code BMS_a035. "Electrical ...."

    I have a 2018 M3P with 28000 miles. I got the BMS_035 "Car may not restart" error starting in June. I finally got into service Aug 12 and they replaced the HV wiring harness to the port and the Power Conversion System was not replaced until today, Aug 25. Unfortunately, when I got the car home...

    New 2021 Model S Unveiled January 27, 2021

    I was thinking about upgrading my P3D+ to an S, but looking at the new S controls? NO WAY. First, I am pissed at Tesla for crapping up the Model 3 UI with the recent update that hogs all sorts of screen for white space and puts the speed and other indicators in hard to see smaller locations...

    Software update 2020.48.26.x update, font size problems

    This new user interface is terrible. Much less elegant. All those numbers cluttering right next to the speed indicator. I find the text harder to read.

    New Model 3 Performance only getting 294 miles on full 100% charge

    When I first purchased my P3D+ in Sept 2018 it regularly stated 307-310 miles on a full charge. 19,000 miles later it states 297-299. I mostly charge to 90%. But I sometimes charge to 100% on road trips. It is cold here. Regularly 40F in my garage and 32-20F outside. In all reality , this is...

    Lifetime Wh/mi

    P3D+ 326 wh/mi @ 18,000 miles and 14 months of ownership in Michigan. Sticky tires and cold weather eat efficiency. OTOH I have had no problems with range. Highway range is better as the car and battery warms up.

    Battery drain while parked or car in storage

    Turn off sentry mode and make sure you don't have summon on "standby" mode. Both eat battery. Last year I left my car at the airport unplugged and lost maybe 10% over 3 weeks. But you have to have all of those modes off so your car can go into deep sleep mode. I definitely want to have at...

    Model 3 Winter Tire Pressure Recommendations

    My experience last winter with my P3D+ and Michelin Alpins on the 20 in wheels was that 42 psi filled around freezing was best. It often drops to 0F here and so then pressure is more like 38-39. I prefer not to let the pressure drop too low lest I damage the rims. Too low a pressure and you...

    Fall leaves in the frunk!

    I opened my frunk yesterday to refill washer fluid. It was filled with leaves.

    Model 3 - 175 miles from a 277 mile charge?

    I've had my P3D+ for a year in Michigan. So I have winter experience. The start/stop mileage craters as the temperature drops. What I mean by that is that you use the most energy taking a 5 mile trip, warming up your car and battery and stopping for a few hours at work and cold soaking your...

    Charging to 90%?

    I've set it to 90% or 100% even for a year+. Went from 309-308 new to about 305 after 17000 miles.

    Thoughts on Michelin Pilot Alpin 4 snow tires for 20" performance rims?

    I had the Alpins on my car last year and need to switch out my summer tires soon. The Alpins drive about as well as the summer tires on cold dry and wet roads. So dry roads 0 deg and aggressive driving - no problem. I don't think performed better as snow tires than most all season tires I've...

    For those with Free Unlimited SuperCharging: Mine is showing "Pay Per Use" but I'm not charged

    Mine says "pay per use" for a few months now. Used to say "free unlimited supercharging." But, I'm not getting charged.

    Tesla glass: corners were cut

    I've had two windshields replaced and I have chips on the 3rd. It would be nice if the windshield was tougher.
