    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    I experienced the same issue. One of my coolant pumps failed and tesla was unable to diagnose for about a year. After repeat visits for excessive charging noise they did replace it and the notes showed pump failure so techs can easily miss this failure even when repeating the same service...

    You still can. The settlement offer is paltry enough and dodges both the safety and charg issues that they themselves bring up in their "charge and thermal settings" fire safety admission on the day 2019.16 was released to make accepting this offer somewhat pointless, but a great starting point...

    Temperature. They are looking for elevated temperatures between groups of cells especially when parked. This is why the pumps run without cooling for drain gate. They move coolant without actively cooling it to see if heat is higher in a specific group of cells than the next group or module over.

    Model S 2014 - Takes longer than usual to charge at the Supercharger

    Tesla crippled you. It's basically the same thing apple got caught doing. If you ask your service center to fix it they will tell you to buy a new tesla.

    75D battery degradation

    This is normal, especially considering software reductions over the last few years

    Are you running Falken Azenis tires? (Warning)

    I had a set that bubbled in the same place as the photo. The road side tech said I probably hit a pithole but I never hit anything.

    Remember when Musk promised swapping batteries instead of charging?

    You're in the Model S forum. Your battery can be removed in 90 seconds!

    Tesla ordered to pay $16K to each customer for batterygate

    They also still fraudulently misrepresent battery gate as "a few minutes" and occasionally "5 minutes" more when it's more like hours more now. Honestly always goes farther in Court than lying.

    Tesla ordered to pay $16K to each customer for batterygate

    If they do I'll put my money where my mouth is and pay. I have said all along if they let me help buy them out of this hole I will. I just want the company to be honest, forward planning, and customer friendly. Fraud is not their best look, I'll pay up to help reinforce a return to honesty...

    Value of 2012 Model S Signature P85 w/out working battery

    OP spent $12k keeping a $25k+ car on the road, saving the environment from more unnecessary production. Not everyone considers Teslas to be single-use disposable cars. Many of us believed in the enticement of sustainable transportation and still try to adhere to the idea.

    Since they charged you for diagnosis, get the actual diagnostic data handed to you. You paid for it and it's illegal for them to refuse to turn it over. Either they lied and will refund the diagnosis fee to hide the lie, or they told the truth and you have proof they charged you for their own...

    An abundance of caution, an investigation, a whole slew of crippling battery nerfing updates... They didn't reduce maximum battery charge to stop it from going too low.

    Anything over no cap is illegal without a recall exemption. And recall exemptions like GM and Hyundai are only short term until the cap can be completely removed safely. Tesla didn't derate our batteries or sell them with a cap to wiggle around. They do now, and this is probably why.

    We should welcome all hypothesis and when the facts prove the hypothesis is wrong discard it in favor of another hypothesis that is supported by evidence. This is the scientific method. A thesis based on selective denial isn't a valid hypothesis it's just misinformation. It can help us get...

    we know this has always been about fire safety. If it wasn't, Tesla is in big trouble for not disclosing their other fire investigation and they still don't have any kind of mitigation to stop the danger!

    What does it cost to replace the defective daughter boards? I'll write that check today. They sold them for the MCU recall, and it's all I have asked for. I'll put my money where my words have always been. Tesla doesn't need to foot the bill for me they just need to make repairs possible...

    They're easy to look for since there are so many. People feel a need to post "positive" used tesla deliveries to combat the flood. Look for "delivery experience" or cpo etc.

    What does MCU look like on prenavigation cars?

    "Tech package" included GPS nav, fob automatic unlock, power trunk, automatic garage doors, and when they added AP hardware it included autopilot for a while until AP became a separate option.

    You should hear it a few times per drive as it levels itself or if you manually adjust something. It shouldn't be constant like this. I only hear it kick in for a few seconds.

    He's the reason we know the gates are likely caused by a difference between A batteries and later hardware. A is completely unaffected, while the later batteries are greatly crippled. This tels us the defect is in the physical differences, or in the software induced effects of those physical...

    Plaid vs Plaid+ visual differences?

    Back in 2012 they were the same. The spoiler and red brakes came later and base 85 even had the same P motor at first. It was just a software change.

    Tesla legal claims MCU is a wearable part, like tires

    This was a voluntary recall with an "or else" attached. Go read the NHTSAs request for recall. They "request" it with demands and finish it up with threats if Tesla wants to say no. Involuntary recalls involve the courts. The NHTSA gave them that option but it would not turn out well for...

    Tesla legal claims MCU is a wearable part, like tires

    people were talking about MCU failures already by then. I don't know if the public knew it was EMMC yet but Tesla probably did. They have been stringing thix along for a long time - I remember at one point Elon tweeting it was "all better" years ago when it was getting harder to ignore the...

    A lot of us with Chargegated cars don't have a profile like that any more. If I try to use a catchall #-SOC% that works at one value it only works at one value and goes into negative Kw at another. example at 10% I charge at peak 60kw for a few seconds. 70-10=60. But by 50% I'm charging at...

    Long Term Depreciation of the Plaid S

    Never? Tesla might currently build disposable single use cars, but EVs in general can be maintained forever. Most other companies have battery replacements and upgrades to keep them on the road, and Jay Leno has one with a 100 year old battery running fine. Don't let teslas current slump...

    I think P100D was the same price as Plaid at launch ($150k) I remember cross shopping p90d and p100d when they were both available and the price difference was memorable.

    Don't believe Tesla's lawyer when he said that - he's incompetent and lying (though I don't know if he lies because of his incompetence or if he's just too far over his head to realize what he's said). They probably designed it to fail in a reasonable span, but the image size grew from 200 MB...

    Give them some benefit of doubt JP. I don't choose to believe they intentionally designed cars to be unsafe from the very beginning though I can understand why you say so. They just designed a lot of things poorly, used substandard parts to save pennies, and have a moron in legal saying...

    We could be close. Even Tesla's most fervent are using longevity as their only excuse. It appears the batteries, like MCU, were designed to fail . I don't think either was intentional, but cost cutting is probably also involved in batterygate. MCU is showing us exactly how Tesla treats...

    Do you have 2 profiles? Link yours to your fob and then try to link the second profile to a second fob. It will only allow you to link fobs that are detected so if the second fob is under a seat or something you will know.

    I saw someone above quote Tesla's misinformation "5 minutes more" lie. This is just not true. They slowed charging and reduced the curve so a 20-80% charge now takes 45-90 minutes longer than before (depending on how badly they gated your battery). People with non-defective hardware or who...

    Every Chevy bolt battery made before 2020 was recalled just a few weeks ago. Their emergency temporary "fix" to stop the fires was a software capped 90% charge limit in the BMS just like Tesla. They are probably going to replace every battery affected. Take both of your Bolts to the...

    Tesla is still concealing the depth of the damage from the world, but yes.

    Regen in cold helps build up lithium plating. it's still high C charging to full voltage and Tesla wasn't managing it's charge thermals safely, which is a well documented way to produce battery fires. They might be able to bring back Regen later but they're still worried about cars that were...

    I think Tesla just didn't design it with much overhead and Performance cars wear it out faster. Newer replacements have lasted longer but I had one like @islandbayy that was faulty right away. It lasted a lot longer than 60 miles though! Maybe lack of over-design is a Tesla pattern. DUs used...

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    It's not unusual, unfortunately. Just look at how many fires Tesla has had after it announced it needed to perform a recall (but still hasn't). The good news for Hyundai owners is they will be made whole because the safety issue is under scrutiny rather than being actively concealed.
