    2015 Model S D85 Battery Warranty

    So water intrusion not covered under defects in workmanship? If the pack wasn't installed correctly, or service done prior and it wasn't secure, that would qualify in workmanship failure. I don't buy water intrusion being the fault of the owner. Unless damage can be proven from the owner. I've...

    Replace the 3G with LTE, Same SIM card?

    If you replace the 3G modem with an LTE in the MCU and it doesn't come with it's own SIM card, the original SIM card will not work for the LTE hardware. Correct?

    Battery day and used Tesla prices

    Considering buying a Tesla. Not sure used/new. Should the news bring EV revelations that depreciate the capabilities of prior models, would it be wiser to hold off until after Sept 22 to make a new purchase? Or F it and just buy the damn thing?

    I’ve never tried this with a lithium cell, but I remember in inorganic chemistry my nutty professor threw elemental Mg in water and BOOM! Since Lithium (unsure if elemental or not) needs oxygen (Oxygen in dihydromonoxide <— causes cancer lol) to combust, I think you’ve got it backwards...

    Coolant isn’t flammable. If you submerge batteries completely in water, there is no oxygen to combust. However, water with solutes creates a galvanic process that corrodes metals and creates an environment for ignition. If cells become exposed because of corrosion, oxygen, short, spark, heat are...

    In light of the known defect that risk battery fire due to the cooling system, Tesla likely used it as an excuse to gimp all our packs to keep from having to pay out for replacing packs that wear down from normal use. That seems like the most likely rational.

    Model 3 Battery Heating?

    One of the more recent RichRebuilds episodes they mention adding a battery heater to a model 3 battery pack. Is this something that can be purchased online. I’d be interested in getting one for longevity purposes. It’s really important to get the pack to 40°C to anneal dendrites when supercharging.

    Who is still on v8?

    If you update, that gives Tesla plausible deniability to the changes they made. There will be no way to compare before and after to validate that the changes they made were legal and valid. Depending on what Tesla claims in court, the NHTSA may not have the ammunition to hold Tesla’s feet to...

    This is strictly a hunch. There isn't absolute certainty in anything I share on here. Invitations to agree/disagree. Maybe the cap was a temporary tolerance analysis whereby the BMS was put into study mode. Each pack as a device was set to operate so that the battery temps are tightly monitored...

    Urban supercharging is 72kw max useable but I guess it's theoretical max is 74kw. It should show the max charge in the Navigation UI when you select the station.

    Sudden Unexpected Acceleration today

    with quick reflexes, can the driver hit the stalk to put the car in neutral? I've had an Infiniti QX4 get the pedal stuck on the hwy and turned off the ignition immediately to coast safely off the road. Going into neutral should stop acceleration promptly.
