    2015 Model S 85D MCU 1. 2020.36.31 update installation stuck at 80%

    It happened to me about 7 weeks ago. Tesla towed the car in and "re did" the update installation. All was fine. Then 6 weeks later all went black again. They towed it in again and replaced the daughter board. I just got it back last Night. We will see.

    Daughter board?

    I have a November 2015 build a P90D. My MCU has gone out twice in 6 weeks. I have had the car towed to Tesla service both times. The first time it took less then an hour to fix as they said an "update" jammed the system and knocked out my MCU. So they re flashed it? Now 6 weeks later, the...

    Blank Touchscreen, no Nav, Phone etc. ??????

    They found that the most recent update jammed the cars systems and took out the MCU. I had my car towed in and they said (after a few hours) NO CHARGE. I will pick it back up this week. Just give them a call. It might be able to be reset remotely.

    Blank Touchscreen, no Nav, Phone etc. ??????

    One member advised to get the MCU 2 as it would be the same deductible. Thanks for the advice. What is the difference between the 1 and 2?

    Blank Touchscreen, no Nav, Phone etc. ??????

    I went out to the car today (late 2015 P90D 27K mikes) and the drivers screen said, "Please wait for your Tesla to Power Up." I waited 3-4 minutes and the screen in front of the steering wheel came up. But no touchscreen. I tried the brake and holding in the 2 wheels on the steering wheel. No...

    LIftgate glass contacted body during closing, cracked glass, warranty refused!

    I agree with making a glass claim. I, also am quite sure, that you will find there is NO glass substitute for Tesla rear glass. I probably would wait for the "escalated" answer (if you ever get one). If it is still denied I would make the insurance claim. I have had 2 Teslas since 2014 and...

    Hi Tam, I have had similar issues from time to time. I have a P90D made in 11/15. What is the total "miles" you get at a 100% charge? I have even had my battery replaced under warrantee and they gave me the same old type battery, V1, I was having problems with and not the V3 that would...

    Help picking insurance for Model S?

    We have Ameriprise as executive COSTCO members. We have a 2015 late Tesla S P90D. We also have a McLaren (pictured) and a Lexus RX 350. We pay about $1050 for all 3 for 6 months. On top we have a $1,000,000 umbrella with one of their companies for about $350 a year. Great folks to work...

    Losing major amounts of mileage while parked

    I had your problem with my P90D and Tesla came out to the house and tested things. They said the 12 V battery was going out and they replaced it. Of course I still get some drain but much less after a new 12 V battery was installed. This was done under warrantee. Scott

    Battery replacement 11/15 P90D

    Thanks I will look later today and post it. Your are right about the grapevine going northwest's or south. But I find that when you go down the opposite way on the same trip, you make up all the miles. An example is going down into Bakersfield my miles # stayed the same for almost 17 miles...

    Battery replacement 11/15 P90D

    I'm down to 248 on my refurbished P90D battery. Actual miles are around 197 on a drive to Bakersfield from south Orange County. OUCH I have tried calling all sorts of #'s but no one can tell me which of the 3 "90" batteries I got or give any help or advice as to what to do. The drive to...

    MCU is dead, car is bricked, Tesla is being unforgivably terrible

    When I bought my 1st "S" in 2014 I thought the CS was fantastic. I got my 2nd in 2016 and it was good. Now, I don't think there is any in S. Cal. I can't get anyone on the phone to even answer a basic. The sales staff says use the "chat" line to get questions answered. Th chat line says all ?'s...
