    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

    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...

    Battery replacement 11/15 P90D

    I have now had the new battery for a few months. They could not tell me what was wrong with the old battery and could not tell me what the new battery is. I called various Tesla #'s and no one could help. Very strange. I did see that I now have and INSANE +. level I can set. Yes, the car is...

    Autopilot worse after latest Update

    I had the braking problem after the "Atari" update also. It happened on the open road and when I looked at the map screen the car was not on the freeway but on a parallel service road. It was almost the car was trying to stop because of the service road conditions. I took it in when they...

    New Battery for P90D. A Big surprise :)

    My problem was that it said 245 miles at 100% and I got about 185-195. I am in S. Cal by the water so it doesn't get really hot or cold. No heater use and conservative driving, for the most part. Now I have more power for sure! But I expected the 245 to go up and the driven miles to go up. I...

    New Battery for P90D. A Big surprise :)

    Just got back on the board after another trip. I was shocked that the max milage did not change. After all that was one of the reasons to replace it. I used to get 245 and I now get 245. Thoughts??

    New Battery for P90D. A Big surprise :)

    My P90D battery was just replaced. The tec in Oceanside said he did not know why. He said the test said replace and the factory said yes. It is lousy that you can't find out what was wrong. They also said they could not tell me anything about the replacement battery. Just that it is...

    Used P90D’s with ludicrous?

    They just called and we are getting the 3rd generation 90 battery, refurbished. Warrantee is only for the rest of the original 8 year period. I think tis is the best result base upon the information you have given me. Agree? Thanks for your help!

    21's or 22's on my 2018 Model S 75D?

    19's but if you must 20's. I had a side blowout also on the 21's. In So. CA. it is mostly good weather. I would not put 21's in poor weather. They look great but not worth the risk in your area, unless it is a summer car :) JMO

    Used P90D’s with ludicrous?

    Certainly hope you're correct! I will ask what the replacement battery is. So far though, the service center "only knows it is a 90 battery like the one I have". Hopefully they don't even have that battery (my original) anymore. Heck for an original cost of $142,000 I would hope they...

    Used P90D’s with ludicrous?

    Where would you suggest I go to find proper information on my P 90 D ? It is in the service center now with 23,000 miles and having a battery swap due to a faulty controller in the battery. I have a 2018 75D loan car that seems faster then my P90D? Is this really possible? Also if the 90 is...

    how to: Battery degradation

    I would simply take it into Tesla and ask them. I felt my car was losing way too many miles. I took it into Tesla and they calculated it (I think from new) and told me I had a battery problem. They are replacing the battery now.

    I understand "Rated Range" but PLEASE explain this to me

    7) You didn't ask, but if you have the charge timed to stop just before you start driving, that will save a bunch of energy which would otherwise be required to bring the pack up to operating temperature. Thanks, that is very helpful. I got up and unplugged the car in the garage and it sat for...

    I understand "Rated Range" but PLEASE explain this to me

    You make a lot of sense. As I look back it as closer to 50 degrees out. We are on the water and it is not as cold as inland though. We DID have the heater on AND there was more "use of miles" going rather then returning. I had no idea that the heater was the most milage killing part of the...

    90D has a more dense battery?

    I was wondering the same thing about weight. I would have expected the car to be slightly heavier also. I also have found that my P 90 D gets EXACTLY the same number (265) rated miles as my 2014 standard "85" got. I was told that the "P" in my new car is what lowers the rated miles and a...
