    U-Joint Problems

    I have a late model 2015 S and have the same issue. I pulled it apart yesterday and noticed mine had a dustcap on it protecting some already existing bearing grease. Was yours covered? Or was it like the X. Regreasing mine seemed to have no affect but will give it another try tomorrow.

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    My windows worked fine without the MCU. But yes no HVAC, autopilot, nav etc. Also no 12V from the cigarette lighter which was weird.

    DIY Removing and Replacing Interior Trim Dashboard and Center Cup Holder

    There is a video in the consolidated emmc sticky in the Model S wiki/sticky section. Not too bad to do honestly, just put mine back together after the emmc failed on my dec 15 S. Should take less than 2 hours if you take your time.

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    Just installed the upgraded/repaired board from @TonyT Everything worked right at boot up, process was simple, hell taking apart the dash was fun for me as I grew up working on vehicles and every so often I miss it. I do wish that it would not of went out when it did because I wanted to do the...

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    My December 2015 S did not charge with the emmc failed although I did not try under 21%. There is a thread around that is trying to figure out why some cars will only charge up to 21%. For your question yes the vehicle trigger for delayed charging is handled by the MCU which when the emmc is...

    21% SOC - Charging complete - Limited - After MCU died

    Yeah I know. But I decided against the tender mainly because mine apparently died at some point and I didn't have time to get one before my flight.

    21% SOC - Charging complete - Limited - After MCU died

    Mine was on miles, I only tried charging when at around 140 miles on my 90D and with emmc in it would say charging at 2kw but I would actually lose charge. With the emmc out it would just say charge complete. When I get back home next week I can try plugging in to see what it says. I left with...

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    Mine also just died. December 2015 build with 82k miles. Just sent the emmc off to Tony yesterday. Luckily I'm going on vacation, good timing besides the cold, because mine does not charge at all without the emmc board installed. Just says charge complete no matter what :(

    It's too late, my MCU1 Died....

    I sent you a PM. I am out of warranty yes but the drive to the service center is 1.5 hours. I would prefer to not do that with the vehicle like this.

    It's too late, my MCU1 Died....

    Looks like mine failed today. No warning signs at all. Was planning to do preventative emmc replace in the summer. But I guess that was too much to hope for. Went into a store came out to a black screen. Have not had map issues, music, nothing. Kinda pissed even though I knew it was going to...

    Car won't charge past 96%

    Very stupid question and not trying to insult. But did you have the slider to 100%? If so maybe try backing it off and then back to 100%

    Charge loss MS

    I did actually. Even worked with support on it. There is something "special" about my car. Even when set to force sleep and stop polling when home it still drains battery. I gave up. Maybe I will try again since there have been 2 months of software updates since then.

    Charge loss MS

    Are you using teslafi? When I was using it my range loss was severe at night no matter what I did. After disabling that I was down to 1 or 2 miles a night max. 2015 90D

    Bought a Mar 2016 S 90D; screen and battery observations / questions

    Ah, looks like the 77 was from an 85, must of looked wrong. Well it is what it is. Not happy with the loss but am happy with the car. Take my first greater than 200 mile drive tomorrow so I will see how that goes. Thanks for the info on the actual capacity.

    Model S90D Battery Degradation?

    I just got a November 2015 90D myself(going on 2 weeks now). 100% is about 263 miles with 90% around 233 miles. 68K miles. Couldn't beat the price and how clean it was. I seem to beat rated miles on drives but teslafi does show that a 10% drive is 7kwh of usage, so if that is the case I am at...

    Bought a Mar 2016 S 90D; screen and battery observations / questions

    How many miles do you have? I have a S90D with 68k miles and a 90% at 233, 100 around 260. But Teslafi told me this morning that 10% of my battery was 7KWh which would mean over 20% degradation if true.. Edit: November 2015 S90D

    Battery sticker gone?

    Kinda what I figured. But thought I'd ask if they were ever removed for any reason.

    Battery sticker gone?

    Purchased a new to me 90D from a 3rd party dealer last week. Great experience no issues there and loving the car. But this morning I went to go look for the battery pack sticker today and it's gone, there is a mark of it being there at one point. Why would someone remove this sticker? Or is it...

    Convince me to buy used from Tesla vs Dealer

    I just got my 90D from current automotive in illinois. Amazing buying experience. I'm happy I didn't buy through Tesla, all of the horror stories and inconsistent pricing scared me away. I would say if possible try to buy from a dealer that at least understands the car. I'm currently working on...

    Tesla Used Inventory Down 30%?

    There are alot of new ones but if you try to go to any of them they are not available. It felt like it was not even an hour after most of them were listed.

    2014 P85d+. Worth Buying?

    Thank you, I don't know if I would trust an external warranty yet... It will only have th e3.5 years on battery and drive train MCU1 does scare me a little bit with the eMMC issues, but I have done component level board repair and have a nice SMD station so I could possibly fix the issue...

    2014 P85d+. Worth Buying?

    Thanks for the reply. I know it has insane + mode by the pictures of the display. If I remember correctly, Ludacris mode is not available for this model. I have seen a 2015 85d from Tesla cpo for 48,9. But that has sold. For an AP2 car. Most are 55k and up that have the other 2 must haves...

    2014 P85d+. Worth Buying?

    Hey everyone, Long time lurker first time poster here. Sorry if wrong spot but I don't feel this belongs in the for sale thread like other ones like this. If you do. I can move it. I have wanted a Tesla for the last year or so and am in a position to finally buy one. I have recently found a...
