    HELP! 3rd Party MS P85 Service near MI!

    As noted in a reply to your duplicate posts in other threads and in your ticket with us, we can do contactor replacements without a problem... HOWEVER... Without first diagnosing the issue ourselves, we will not guarantee that replacing the contactors will fix your issue. The error in...

    Recell: certified replacement battery packs for low-range/bricked Model S

    Probably wouldn't post a phone number on a public forum... should probably edit that. Pretty sure you have a ticket in with us and we were trying to gather more information, since most likely replacing the contactors is not the actual issue based on what's been described. (We're not the 3rd...

    Recell: certified replacement battery packs for low-range/bricked Model S

    It usually only takes one full day of supercharging powered driving (several cycles worth of charges back to back) to really imbalance a pack with a mismatched module. Regular daily use will also slowly grow the mismatch imbalance to uncorrectable levels. This is because the BMS's ability to...

    Please Help... Tesla Model S: Maximum battery charge level reduced (cannot get past 20 miles)

    @MP3Mike linked above to some posts I already made detailing issues with module replacements and why the car was never designed for this (thanks!). The modular design wasn't for repairs, it was for ease of manufacturing using the processes available at the time. The modular design made it so...

    2013 Model S sudden battery failure

    They didn't really address all of the known issues until maybe 2018. Even then, there's some things impossible to address. So while I suspect the failure rates of the packs will decline with the newer versions, it's probably plateaued, barring any future design screw ups. The 3/Y packs are...

    Please Help... Tesla Model S: Maximum battery charge level reduced (cannot get past 20 miles)

    If a module was actually replaced, then the pack is on life support and will need a full replacement at some point, likely within a year of normal use. For the same issues you described (only one bad module) we'd do a full replacement pack at about $4500 (plus transport costs). A full...

    2013 Model S sudden battery failure

    The Model S was never designed to be a cheap or easy repair, especially the battery pack. In fact, let's look at some history. When Tesla designed the S battery pack, it was designed to be 100% non-serviceable. If any component within had an issue, it would need to be replaced entirely. How...

    2013 Model S sudden battery failure

    The reman part number isn't super useful, because the internals could be basically anything on a reman unfortunately. Without hooking up to the pack to examine it, no way to really know. We're doing battery replacements pretty regularly over at 057 Tech. Even with freight costs it's usually...

    Limited Time: 100 kWh Battery Upgrade (S/X), Ludicrous+ Capable, 2 Year Warranty

    It's a weird situation from what I can tell. My understanding of the situation on Tesla's side is this: The S/X module production lines were doing double duty making S/X 100-type modules as well as Powerwall/Powerpack modules, and now they're fully Powerwall/Powerpack... however, they can still...

    Battery Failures

    I did put a note on my old site that you're probably looking for 057 Tech ;) 4 replacements on an X sounds interesting. Would love more details on that. Supercharging degrades the batteries faster than the slower AC charging, but wouldn't cause them to fail more readily. The bulk of failures...

    are there any level 2 home chargers that can charge faster than 48amps/12,000 watts

    Can upgrade the onboard chargers of most non-Plaid S/X vehicles to 72 or 80A, depending on the vehicle. There's some caveats to it, such as the 72A onboard chargers predate any CCS support.

    Yeah, we got it worked out. The guy did stop about a half mile away after the shoulder opened up a little. He claimed he thought he only hit the barrier and the white SUV that he tried to avoid, and followed the SUV to a stop ahead. 🤷‍♂️ Dash cam saved the day on that for sure. I highly...

    Limited Time: 100 kWh Battery Upgrade (S/X), Ludicrous+ Capable, 2 Year Warranty

    I mean, if your wallet can take it I can make a RWD Tesla with a 100 kWh that has roughly 650 HP (pulled from the battery, so ~600 at the wheels). RIP tires. (Only had it pushing about 530 HP at the wheels when I did this ^)

    Limited Time: 100 kWh Battery Upgrade (S/X), Ludicrous+ Capable, 2 Year Warranty

    A RWD 100 isn't a standard configuration, and we decided not to promote non-standard configs at the moment. While we can technically do it, there are a lot of caveats that would make it less appealing than just purchasing a new vehicle (no more firmware updates, for one).

    Punch in your VIN on the new site for an upgrade quote: Upgrade Your Tesla | 057 Technology Keep in mind that this site assumes a working core battery pack, so the true cost will be a bit more if the car is dead (although not by much if coming from a 60 since these aren't worth much either way...

    We thought about doing an auction for it, and I'm still considering that. To be fair it'd just have to be completely refundable, though. My main thing is I don't really like us holding on to someone's money without something actually being in the works for the order, which isn't really doable...

    Unfortunately the only thing that is kind of doable is to downgrade the entire vehicle to early 2019 firmware. Only really possible on MCU1, and even then you'll have to contend with some other issues related to being that far out of date. Given the rationale behind the throttling and other...

    Crawl under the car and check the front passenger side for a recessed panel with funky bolts. If it's not there then it's on top. Extending the line is fine as long as it doesn't get clogged.

    The original signature S batteries were actually the best on degradation-per-mile that I've seen out of every pack type to-date in my testing. Ever since then it's been a bit of a balancing act on performance/range vs degradation... with some worse than others (looking at you, 90 packs...)

    We went back and forth on the brick6 issue a lot internally, and decided that if it's corrected by the stock firmware with no related errors and the vehicle is completely usable, then we don't consider this a failure or disqualify based on it. If you're getting errors related to it "Maximum...

    Was discussing the 2012-2013 situation with a friend just now, and he actually noted that it "sounds weird" for me to suggest purchasing our service plan for a variant of vehicle that I'm confident has a high chance of failing within the term of the plan. So it's worth explaining that it does...

    There were a LOT of revisions in 2014 and 2015. Some are better than others. I don't believe any of the post-2013 packs suffer from the same issues as the pre-2014 packs, however, so I'd expect them to have significantly fewer failures. It'll be hard to quantify with certainty until more are...

    Vendor Tesla Model S Battery Extended Service Plans from 057 Technology

    We do our best! :) Those errors suggest an issue with a HV component other than the battery pack. Specifically, a high voltage isolation fault outside of the battery pack. This could be as simple as the battery heater failing, or could be as serious as the drive unit failing. Normally this is...

    On a side note, at this point I'm pretty convinced a huge percentage, if not every single one, of the 2012-2013 S battery packs out there are going to fail at some point within the next few years. Have gathered plenty of data on this. When they fail, the issue is not really correctable aside...

    Tesla refurbished packs are different. They don't attempt to replace modules or butcher them by cutting cells fuses.
