    Tekonsha Prodigy RF trailer brake controller setting on Bowlus

    I am getting ready to tow our Bowlus Road Chief with our 2016 Model X 90D for the first time and tried to adjust the trailer brake today. The instructions say to increase the power setting until the manual override locks up the trailer brakes then back it down, but I was not able to lock it up...

    NHTSA Investigates Failing MCUs

    I was quoted a diagnosis charge when I made the appointment, but it came out as goodwill. I think they don’t charge it if it turns out to really be a problem.

    NHTSA Investigates Failing MCUs

    As you predicted, they were not willing to put it under warranty, but she offered to waive the labor fee, and quoted $410 for the part. I sent her the bill attached to an earlier post showing $120 for the part and, after asking management, she was able to match that for a total of $130.80!

    NHTSA Investigates Failing MCUs

    I also just got a quote for replacing the daughterboard. Same part number but asking $696.30. This is in the SF Bay Area. I am asking if it is possible to do under warranty since it died the month after its 4th birthday

    Model S REST API

    Feel free to PM me or add an issue on Github with the steps to reproduce the problem. - - - Updated - - - Yes, it is. I should document this on the instructions so people would use caution, or Incognito mode.

    Driving from SF to LA

    I believe you meant EVTripPlanner and EV Calculations :)

    Driving from SF to LA

    You understood correctly what I meant by tracking rated range. I took a picture of the dash when we arrived at Tejon which I attached. Looks like we started climbing 10 mi before Tejon, not <5. So there, my contribution to the art of brodering! Trip A (Harris to Tejon @70mph): 116.2mi 41kWh...

    Control your Tesla from your browser

    I found it quite ironic that we can view and control our cars from our phones and tablets but not from our computers, but I share the concerns with sending my credentials over a third-party site, so I have written a bookmarklet which dresses up the Tesla portal (documented by timdorr) to allow...

    Driving from SF to LA

    Agree that we should have a comfortable buffer, which was why we waited at the 70A charger till we had 145 mi rated range before we set off in spite of the sign claiming 135 was enough. Tesla support, BTW, told us that we could make it to Tejon without charging, with 93 mi rated range!! At speed...

    Model S REST API

    I found it quite ironic that we can track and control our cars from our phones (and tablets) but not from the big computers that we sit in front of, but I share the concern of sending credentials via a third-party website, so I created a bookmarklet that layers a user interface on the API...

    Model S REST API

    I've also been wanting to track/control my MS from the computer, but I share the concern of sending my credentials over a third-party site, so I've created a bookmarklet which will dress up the api endpoint. It is bare minimum right now, but I am planning to put jquerymobile on it for more eye...

    Before Tesla provides that to us, we did update the status on the Model S-optimized Recargo: Recargo

    Driving from SF to LA

    My wife and I just did this trip (Los Altos to Fullerton, specifically) last night. The Harris Ranch Supercharger seems to be broken :( We were on the phone for a long time with Tesla Support trying to debug but in the end we had to use the 70A roadster charger instead. Fortunately there is a...

    Charging cable removed repeatedly at SFO

    Instead of trying to lock each other out, why not share the precious chargers more efficiently by leaving our contact information and charge required: EV Charging Protocol Ford Offers Rules On EV Charging Etiquette (Video + Dash Charge Card)
