    Fan noise behind driver display

    Most likely it's the cooling fan behind the display. Not that difficult to replace if you can find the replacement fan. I had to order one from AliBaba. There are a few threads here covering the display. If you take it apart you may want to replace the screen as well.

    2012 Model S - Limp mode - BMS_w172 (Vehicle may not restart) , BMS_u008 (Acceleration and top speed reduced)

    You could try the "Change Wheels" reboot. See if it resets things for you? My $.02 Kaveman

    Tesla 1st Gen TPMS Sensors Issues

    JSD17, that IS the updated "conti" system. Some sensors can just be reprogrammed to work with it. It depends what sensors were installed Kaveman

    Tesla 1st Gen TPMS Sensors Issues

    JSD17, I am going to assume(you know what that means), that you car doesn't have the newer "Conti" system installed. That means you will only get a warning if any of the sensors stop working or you actually have a low tire. The original Balong system didn't display actual pressures on the dash...

    Tesla 1st Gen TPMS Sensors Issues

    What brand Sensors are they. I can say from previous experience that Autel sensors unfortunately don't work well with the older Balong system used in earlier cars. They will connect and reset with the car, but in use, they lose communication with the module.

    Tesla 1st Gen TPMS Sensors Issues

    Sounds like one of the batteries in the ones you received is dead. You can get New ones via [email protected] ITM, and they come pre programmed, you just need to tell the car to do a TPMS reset after you install them. Some other brands claim to work with the older Balong System, but they don't produce...

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

    tldickerson, Depends on the year of your S. Mine is a 2013. There are 2 fuse boxes under the cover, frunk, front of the windshield. Left box should have fuse #51(20A) for the touchscreen, and #49(5A) for the instrument panel. Do this at your "own risk". The post 2016 cars, the boxes are in a...

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

    CB198 There are Fuses to pull power for the MCU and the IC. I had the 2 stop communicating, pulled the fuses, waited a bit, plugged the fuses back in, and back in action. Plenty of info on which fuses, but depends on your year car as to which ones. Kaveman

    Replacing instrument cluster

    The Revision 1 I did, the glass peeled off pretty easy... But it was already missing quite a bit of the goo. After the "fun" with the goo, I ended up getting a Reeldeal. Worked perfect, nice and NEW.

    Software update. Next day Power reduced with Dl_w126 error code

    Did the update last night. Drove the car to work this AM. No adverse issues. Everything looks and functions as it should. It would be good to get a follow-up from the OP on their resolution. Another $.02 Kaveman

    Replacing instrument cluster

    I believe it'll work fine. The glass came off pretty easy, just be careful not to crack it, I cleaned the goo off with ice cream sticks, lint free rags, and electronics parts cleaner. The goo is Nasty... glove up, don't touch anything, it stick to EVERYTHING! :^)

    4 Post Lift?

    Thanks for the suggestions. There is an issue or two with a 2 post setup. 1st: the concrete you bolt it to has to have 8" thickness( I believe). most residential garages may be 6". 2nd: If you plan to store a vehicle, not sure I want the suspension to just "hang". As for Quick Jacks: I'm tired...

    Pump Running While Connected to Wall Connector

    Charged to 85% overnight(says 83% charge complete, but that's something else). NO pump running...? Either it's temp related(was a bit cooler this AM), or the pump died? I'm going with ambient temp... Just another $.02 Kaveman

    4 Post Lift?

    Anyone here put their Model S up on a Home version 4 post lift( 7-8000lb versions)? Most of these lifts are in the 73-75" wide ramp to ramp, and a Model S is 77.5" rim to rim. Any particular brand(s) that have been tried/purchased? Looking at maybe getting one, but want to be sure it'll work...

    Not Charging to Set Percentage?

    I set my 2013 P85 to charge to 85% overnight( Gen2 Mobile 14-50 @32A). Get out to car in the AM, still plugged in and it shows 82% "charging complete". It used to charge to where I set it, now it seems to not reach the set percentage. Tried 74%, "charging complete" at 71%. Not sure why this...

    Pump Running While Connected to Wall Connector

    Followup: I charged to 85%, when complete, pump ran as long as the charger was connected(Gen2 mobile NEMA 14-50 @32A). Could hear it just being in the garage. Ran the car, then charged to 74%, (charger still connected) pump ran at a much lower speed( I'm not sure it was the same pump?) Barely...

    NEED HELP Tesla model S 2013

    The things I would check into would be: Has the Battery ever been swapped, Drive unit as well, and the MCU emmc. Any service history would be really a plus as well. Kaveman

    Pump Running While Connected to Wall Connector

    I have the same issue as the OP... 2013 P85. I did lower my battery charge to 78%, pump still runs. I will lower it to 75% later today and report back if the pump is running while plugged in. I thought the threshold was under 80%? Kaveman
  33. Kaveman

    2012 p85

    I'd say that there is some wiring issue as I don't think both speakers would die at the same time... Just another suggestion.

    Ohmmu battery installation by mobile ranger

    I'm pretty sure that Tesla won't install that battery for you. I replaced mine about a year ago with an OhmMu. I'm pretty sure the OhmMu has a BMS. Mine is still working fine here in the FL heat. It's not that hard to do yourself, but earlier cars with the battery under the cowl is a bit of a...

    12v Battery Options - Which is best?

    BTW: You are right the one that lasted only one year may be an outlier... But I am also interested in working/trying newer technologies...

    12v Battery Options - Which is best?

    My 13 MS P85 is on it's 3rd battery. I put in an OhmMu this time around as the last one made it exactly one year before giving the "12V battery" error. It is definitely Expensive, but I haven't had an issue so far. I believe it has a 3 year warranty... So buy a lead acid every year for $100US or...
