    Strange regen braking problem - shaking

    I've been having this problem for 3 years and it just keeps getting worse year after year. The shaking on mine can be quite violent some times. I have figured out how to reliably reproduce the issue even if it's not cold. The issue definitely has something to do with the SoC being at a certain...

    Supercharger Proposal for NC - Warsaw, NC

    Rumor is this site has finally been decommissioned. Can anyone confirm?

    Supercharger - Cary, NC

    This afternoon around 4:30 they looked like they were cleaning up and all the pedestals had cords attached and signs were up. They had removed the fencing that was in place around the POD that was onsite. I suspect they're done and just need Duke to power it up and Tesla to come test it. I'll...

    Group Buy for Power Trunk/Frunk Liftgate!

    Opening from inside works regardless. It's closing from inside that requires this modification because without it, if the car thinks the trunk is open, the OPEN button is greyed-out on the touch-screen. My use-case for needing to close from the inside is when my kids grab their bags from the...

    Group Buy for Power Trunk/Frunk Liftgate!

    The Hansshow instructions obviously leave much to be desired, but I'm pretty sure it's actually showing it going through the blue grommets that are behind the bumper, but I could be wrong. I think trying to insert it through the tail light hole could lead to issues because there's not a lot of...

    Group Buy for Power Trunk/Frunk Liftgate!

    I ran into this as well. Took me a bit to figure out that Torx screw was there and I had a heck of a time getting one of them back on because the clip on the bumper side fell off and I had some trouble getting it lined back up again.

    The Hansshow kit has light connectors that you reconnect your existing lights to so that they work. Not sure if the kit being mentioned here is the Hansshow or not.

    Group Buy for Power Trunk/Frunk Liftgate!

    How did you manage to wire the cables from the actuators into the trunk without removing the bumper? I had to remove mine because I couldn't find any other way to get to the two grommets to get the wires in. That said, removing the bumper wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be.

    FWIW, stopped by today and still in the same state waiting for pedestals.

    Group Buy for Power Trunk/Frunk Liftgate!

    Ok - I'm done installing mine successfully. I followed a combination of the instructions that were provided by the manufacturer (which are terrible): Tesla Model 3 electric tailgate installation instructions | Intelligentized Auto Parts | Hansshow And this YouTube video: I wasn't...

    Group Buy for Power Trunk/Frunk Liftgate!

    I'm in the process of installing mine right now myself. The documentation is pretty bad. I've got almost everything working except there is one more cable that seems to connect to the CAN bus so that you can close from app/inside the car, but no instruction on where this cable connects to...

    Got a few photos of the transformer. It's done from the Duke Energy side, but no runs from the Secondary to the switch gear yet. Ball is back in Tesla's court to finish this up.

    Didn't get a photo, but they were busy installing the utility transformer this morning, so that should be done.

    Supercharger - Cary, NC

    Not much has changed in a week. Looks like they didn't actually get the transformer installed the other day. They just put down the concrete pad and ran the utility cables. Now need to wait for the transformer. Also, nothing run from the transformer pad to the switch gear yet.

    Supercharger - Cary, NC

    Crew was busy installing the Utility Transformer today. All the supercharger cabinets are closed up now, although nothing is run from the switch gear to the transformer or the supercharger cabinets yet. You can see the 4 conduits that go to the transformer and the 6 that go to each of the...

    Supercharger - Cary, NC

    Some work going on today. Looks like they ran the cable through the conduit between the supercharger cabinets and the pedestals. Also, the switch gear is now on the pad behind the cabinets (it was sitting in the parking lot before).

    Superchargers needed at the N.C. beaches

    In the past when I've gone out there, I've just plugged in with a 110V outlet for the few days I'm there since most of the time I'm just at the beach. There is a pair of HPWC's by the Lowe's Foods before you go over the bridge to Emerald Isle. They are free and I've never seen them ICE'd.

    Supercharger - Durham NC

    This photo posted to the Triangle Tesla owners group forum by one of the members. Looks like it's likely going on the back side of Southpoint near the Apple store where the entryway to the Tobacco Trail is that goes up to the pedestrian bridge over I-40.

    Supercharger - Savannah, GA

    They were the new stalls when I went though in December 2017. In fact, all the ones up the east coast that used to be the old ones were replaced from what I remember.

    Model S expensive repair making me feel like I'm losing the faith...

    This is the 3rd or 4th instance of this exact issue that I've heard - there is some kind of short that occurs in the heating element which results in a blown fuse inside the DC-DC converter and the only way to repair is to replace the entire DC-DC. I'm guessing if there was an external fuse it...

    Supercharger Proposal for NC - Warsaw, NC

    Wallace would be really out of the way for the routes that this charger enables - getting out to the beach in the Emerald Isle area. There's already a charger in Wilmington so Wallace I don't think would add much value. I'd rather see something like Kinston or even Jacksonville.

    Supercharger - Lumberton, NC

    I'm pretty sure most if not all sites were already 120kW capable. That said, I had been having lots of issues at several sites and the logs sometimes indicated over temperature errors on the charging cable handle. With the new pedestals they also replaced the cables and handles and I didn't run...

    Supercharger - Florence, SC

    When I went by last week on Dec 20, there were at least 8 of the stalled ICE'd :-( They really shouldn't have put the chargers so close to the mall. They should have been further away in less-desirable parking spots. I suspect this is going to be a problem at this site for some time to come.
  29. pgiralt

    Supercharger - Lumberton, NC

    No expansion. Was just there yesterday. Although, as you mentioned, they have replaced all the stalls with the new light-up design. In fact, it appears that they have replaced all the old ones all along I-95 from here down through Florida as they were all new on my trip where several sites (e.g...

    Supercharger - Orlando, FL - W Sand Lake Road

    I didn’t pull in to check. I drove by at night and noticed the Tesla logos were off so didn’t bother trying to go in to charge.

    Just drove by and still powered off.

    Is the battery post under the nose cone fused?

    The fuse can be removed and replaced. It seems to be held on by some nuts.

    I think John meant that the meter was operating, not the superchargers.

    Supercharger - Fayetteville, NC

    Thanks to a member of the Triangle Tesla group for finding this one. Looks like it's under construction off of I-95 Exit 49 across the street from the Cracker Barrel.

    New Superchargers Proposed in Greensboro and Raleigh, NC

    That transformer looks waaaay too small for the superchargers (especially for 6 of them). Maybe that's just for the J1772's they're going to put back in place?

    I sure hope not. I've depended on Warsaw to be able to pull of day-trips to the coast. Without it, this is not possible.

    Heading to South Carolina for the eclipse. Where will you watch from?

    I was there a bit earlier in the day - got there around 9:30 a.m. and it was a full house. Had to wait just for one car in front of me. Interestingly, in your photo there are cars in all stalls, but that morning, 3A (I think) was not working. Several of us called it in, so maybe they were able...

    I'm thinking of heading towards Greenville. I'm worried about supercharger availability.

    Also should mention, my graph is change rate vs. SoC (in miles) as opposed to charge rate vs. time. I think mine is probably more accurate, but the results are similar.

    Supercharger Proposal for NC - Warsaw, NC

    Zeb, to continue your off-topic thread :-) I've seen almost identical issues as you see in your graph. I made the graph manually by taking screenshots of the app while charging and then going back and graphing in excel: This was in Glen Allen: And this was in Port St. Lucie: Both...

    Drive Unit Replacement Poll

    My story is similar to @David99. I had 7 replacements as well. My last one was a -Q revision unit in March 2016. I've driven it 36k miles and it's been perfect. I think they finally got it fixed. No unit before this one lasted more than 10k miles without starting to make some kind of sound.

    While technically no interstates go through Wilmington, I-40 basically ends at Wilmington.

    Just reported on Facebook today. Someone found a Supercharger under construction in Wilmington! This is a nice addition to the NC map. Apparently it's in the Mayfaire Town Center.

    Supercharger stations in North Carolina

    It's anyone's guess. There's actually been a pin in this area since the 2016 map, but that never materialized. If I had to guess, it will be somewhere along I-40. There are a few mall locations they could go for - The Streets at Southpoint, Crossroads, and even the nearly abandoned Outlet mall...

    Supercharger - Bethesda, MD

    So is Bethesda finally closed? It's not showing up on the tesla.com map anymore, so I assume it's not in the Nav anymore.
