    Car shut down after car wash, Tesla says oil pump seal

    I took our older RWD LR model 3 through a no-touch car wash and about 2 miles later, it flashed a bunch of errors and then refused to move again once I stopped. Then after about 30 minutes, it started working again and was fine all weekend. I drove it to service and Tesla says, "Upon diagnoses...

    Charging 120V @ 32A

    Not sure when you'd ever do this out in the wild, but in case you are curious, it works. The highest current 120V outlet you are likely to encounter would probably be 120V @ 24A at TT-30 camper outlets. There's an adapter for those outlets that works. I'm curious to know if the UMC will accept...

    Transition to higher voltage batteries / DC fast charging

    I've been wondering, how will Tesla (and other manufacturers) transition to higher voltage DC fast charging? I can only see two options: 1. Change the battery, motor and other car systems to 800V or higher. Cons: You lose the ability to DC fast charge at all existing supercharger and Chademo...

    Valet mode with frunk access for body shop?

    I dropped my car off at the body shop to replace the front bumper. They needed me to take the car off of valet mode to be able to access the frunk. I'd prefer to keep the car in valet mode. Is there a way to keep the power and speed limited, while still giving them access to the frunk? I guess I...

    Building NEMA 6-20P to NEMA 5-20R Adapter

    I thought I would make a new post with pictures I took while building my NEMA 6-20P to NEMA 5-20R Adapter. This adapter allows you to charge at 12A or 16A at 240V from a NEMA 6-20 receptacle. The NEMA 6-20 receptacle is easy to install if you have an existing 120V outlet on its own dedicated...

    Wh / mile

    Driving around a service loaner Model S today I noticed that the Wh / mi for the Model S seems to match exactly what I get in the Roadster at 65 mph: ~267 Wh / mi. Interesting. I knew the Model S was slippery, but I still thought it used quite a bit more power / mile, since it weighs almost...

    Recommendations for mechanic / tire shop in Raleigh/Durham, NC?

    Any recommendations for a good place to get tires and an alignment done in Raleigh / Durham? My Roadster needs new rear tires and Tesla won't install the AD08s, only AD07s, and they want $299 each. I also need to get an NC-state inspection for the Roadster. What kind of inspection do they even...

    Tighten your valve stems!

    I went for a drive yesterday and got stuck on the side of the road with a flat tire. Luckily, I didn't use the tire slime. I called AAA and they inflated the tire again. We found a leak coming from the valve stem. We tightened up the nut holding the valve stem (and TPMS, I assume) to the rim and...

    Line Voltage Lost Sync when using J1772 charging at Eaton chargers and CAN JR

    I've noticed this error twice when using public J1772 chargers with the CAN JR on my 2.0 Roadster. "Line Voltage Lost Sync" I'm realizing it may have been the same Eaton charger in both locations. It seems to happen when the Roadster is nearly fully charged. Restarting charging seems to work...

    Potentially buying a 2008: Battery questions.

    I'm looking at buying a roadster. It is a 2008 model that is reporting 169-171 mile range in standard mode. It has about 20k miles on it. That range seems low to me, based on the study. The owner says part or all of the battery was replaced within the last year. Should I be concerned about that...

    P85D 1/4 mile time?

    I'm wondering how the P85D can be 1 second faster 0-60, but only 0.5 seconds faster in the 1/4 mile? P85D was announced to be 11.8 seconds, but there are videos of the P85 doing it in 12.3. I'm guessing the 11.8 time is pretty conservative and we'll see faster real-world times. What do you...
