    Charge Thermal Limit warning

    Thanks Greg - I sent the logs to Gruber and Tesla today. By the way - Tesla's special Roadster email hotline "[email protected]" said they could not download logs remotely -- they said "We have never been able to connect to the roadster as they have no way for us to connect...

    Charge Thermal Limit warning

    Thanks Mark - Debug mode is on. Pem fan is new - was replaced when I rebuilt PEM at Gruber this year. Exhaust motor is single fan and was replaced by Gruber. The warning is gone now after the car sat overnight. Will have to keep an eye on it.

    Door release breaking

    Seth: I received my 1291 Roadster from Gruber 2 weeks ago after a 7 month stay. It was worth it. I can now drive it with confidence and am back in my love affair with the vehicle. From CT it was about $1,400 to transport the car each way. The PEM rebuild was charged at the price in their...

    Door release breaking

    I drove a green Roadster in late 2010 that Michael Sexton brought up to me in New Haven form the NY sales office to entice me to buy my red car. I don't know the VIN... but it did the job and I ordered had my car #1291. I don't think its yours since the wheels are different.

    Door release breaking

    EPARES: I use the Milford, CT SC. They are TERRIFIC. They have 2 original techs there who have worked on my car from the day the SC opened here and only Roadsters were on the road, and this was the first SC outside NYC. I believe they have more Roadster experience than anywhere else in the NE...

    Door release breaking

    Hi Seth: I reported our comments to Pete at GMC and he said his staff was rolling on the floor laughing at our descriptions. At least somebody had a good lauch about my Roadster travails! 1291 is all fixed now and good to go. Firmware issues, CIC board issues, all fixed. PEM and CIC boards...

    From the NE to Gruber is over $2k round trip... not something you would do casually. Mine has been there since February for major brain surgery.

    How Many Roadsters are Left?

    if the number left running is decreasing then I wonder why the value of those left seems unchanged in years. I see them listing for between $55-$78k. Tesla offers far below that to trade in. I am happy to say my #1291 is still great, although its at Gruber getting the PEM rebuld so I can get...

    Odd charging behavior (seen in logs)

    Henry is right about the car not balancing if you basically stop the charge and drive off, although the car will balance on its own even unplugged. I meant to point out that to me, it made more sense not to risk damage to the contactors in the relays from excessive cycling for no reason. I never...

    Odd charging behavior (seen in logs)

    A few of us did extensive research on this awhile back and one owner visited Clipper Creek. The owner of Clipper. Reek wa snot aware of the issue in his own Roadster until it was shown to him! The Roadster was developed and built before the J1772 protocol was written. The handshake for the car...

    Roadster 3.0

    Basically TM has moved and forgotten us. EM thinks we are suckers/guinea pigs for buying the Roadster. Makes me a bit bitter! I had the plug and socket for my cooling fan melt in August and it took TM 4 weeks to replace the board. First they said I need the whole PEM $8,000 .. but after I...

    PEM Fans

    I have the same issue now. Car shut down while driving and had to flat bed to Service Center. They say the fan socket nad board are burnt and melted. Also need new dual fans.

    "Charging Problem" error message, unable to charge

    ElectricLove - will you do a PEM fix in Connecticut? My Roadster #1291 will not charge and its either the fuses as noted above, or something bigger. Drives but cannot charge. Luckily it died after I drove it only a short distance fomr full SOC. Now at Tesla shop waiting for their diagnosis.

    Looking for a plug-in Home Charger recommendations

    As I had mentioned in the post before this - the Clipper Creek HCS-40 is not going to be compatible with a Roadster unless you will be around when the charge is done to unplug the car. In fact none of their products will work. The car will finish a charge, and then a minute later will click the...

    Looking for a plug-in Home Charger recommendations

    Last year Greg D., Henry Sharp and I discovered a standards problem for the Roadster and most J1772 chargers on the market. We confirmed the issue with Clipper Creek, the original maker of the Roadster HPWC. Roadster was built before the J1772 standard was finalized and the issue is that modern...

    OVMS Installation

    I would recommend you get a SIM fomr Hologram.io - it is great and low cost. You will also have to register with OVMS and set up the APP on your mobile phone. Mark told you what to do with the firmware. Tom Sax has created a great step-by-step instruction set to use to set it all up - I believe...

    Odd charging behavior (seen in logs)

    Clipper Creek accepted a return of the HCS-40 for a full refund upon our having convinced them of the compatibility issue. They have been extremely cooperative in investigating this right up to the point of helping us resolve the problem, as noted above. I cannot blame them totally, but it seems...

    Odd charging behavior (seen in logs)

    Henry: I know your are a Roadster specialist... But do Model S and X handshake differently from Roadster when they are plugge into an EVSE ? I suspect that the CC charger works fine with my X because the pilot is either more stable at teh 6V and 9V levels of the square wave, or they are set at a...

    Odd charging behavior (seen in logs)

    Charlie contacted me too. My electrician arrived today and we switch out the original charger to the replacement charger they sent. I will report tonight when I get home and try to charge. I completely expect the same situation as they just sent another HCS-40. I will give Charlie Henry's email.

    Odd charging behavior (seen in logs)

    Henry: Nobody has more experience with the plugs and handshaking than you do - so I am anxious for your evaluation. They would need your CAN J1772 to Roadster most probably since the charger is made with J1772 plug. Greg said he has a 2.0 I would think Clipper Creek can solve this easily...

    Wayner: Yes, it is valued highly by investors, but read the financial pundits and you get the opposite view. I hope TSLA shows them woefully wrong in the end. In fact the Solar City plan is brilliant - wait for the 500,000 Model 3 owners to start paying for Supercharger juice and see the...

    Odd charging behavior (seen in logs)

    Thanks Greg. My car is a 2.5 - Tesla checked it all recently and said my car is fine - but they really have little to measure on this. Since I can charge fine everywhere else it is the Clipper Creek/Roadster interface for sure. The cycling is clearly noted on my OVMS. I bought the Clipper...

    I was thinking about this thread today and musing about if I will be able to keep the car running in 10 years.

    Hi Bob: I have had this problem also. Tesla service lubricated the cylinder and it was fine for about a year, and then started again. If it happens and you want to be sure the car is off, just push the cylinder in a few times to see if the spring will return it far enough to get of the button...
