    Supercharger - Augusta NJ

    New Wawa being built has (at least) 8 pedastals up already. Saw them as I drove by this morning. Will get some pictures this evening. This is the location: https://www.njherald.com/story/news/2021/12/10/wawa-frankford-nj-breaks-ground-first-store-sussex-county/6432826001/

    Tesla Supercharger network

    I used these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M8NRPSZ and replaced them myself.

    Just the bulbs right? I did mine sometime last year as well.

    Supercharger - Woodbridge, NJ

    One month later, still looks the same. Unfortunately I didn't know this was going on and went there expecting to charge. Went over to Edison, which was full and ended up waiting >30min before even getting a spot. Thought I'd be clever and use the EVGO chademo chargers right next to the Edison...

    Supercharger - New Paltz, NY

    Perfect location for me when I'm coming south on the Thruway. New Paltz is my exit with about 20 miles left to travel to get home. Sure beats stopping @ Kingston and then having to get back on the Thruway.

    I retrofit MCU2, IC2, Tuner2, and FSD Computer into my HW2.0 Car

    I have root access to the MCU2. I don't have any trouble connecting to it. I may not have the gateway sorted.

    I retrofit MCU2, IC2, Tuner2, and FSD Computer into my HW2.0 Car

    Can't get redeploy to proceed with MCU2 in car. Been a few months since I tried last, but as I recall, couldn't get the gateway to pull the HWIDs or something to that effect. Pulled the LCD from my IC2 to repair leaky IC1 and waiting on new LCD from china before I try again. Maybe December.

    I retrofit MCU2, IC2, Tuner2, and FSD Computer into my HW2.0 Car

    I'm sure the bulletin exists. Tesla always provides step-by-step instructions to their technicians on how to do work/upgrades on the cars. I've never seen it though. I have seen / do have the MCU1 -> MCU1.5 upgrade procedure that includes moving some wires in the connectors to the back of the...

    Supercharger - New Paltz, NY

    Exit 17 is Newburgh right? It's in rough shape as well. Only 5 pedestals working last I was there. Avoid at all costs.

    Supercharger - Newburgh, NY

    For what it's worth, there is a broken stall now, so only 5 are working. All 5 were full Saturday with a few cars waiting. With all the new options available: Middletown to the West, Fishkill to the East, Kingston to the North (and soon, New Paltz), I advise avoiding this location if possible...

    Rusting of the rear lift gate attachment points

    VW clips fit. I was not aware the service center sells just the clips now. Do you have a part#?

    Rusting of the rear lift gate attachment points

    Did this repair today. One of my clips was totally gone in the middle and the other 3 broke when I removed them. Had to dig the ends of the clips out of the struts with a pick.

    Tesla Parts for Over-the-Counter(No VIN)

    Paramus SC has a parts desk. Nobody responds to emails or voicemails there, so I just walk in and order at the desk. Kind of annoying to drive an hour there and find parts are not in stock though.

    I'm glad you found your nuts.

    I replaced my own battery heater

    Followup: Over a year later, I dropped a screw into the fender (between the fender and the wheel liner). Pulled the wheel liner to fetch the screw, and what do I find? My 10mm snap-on socket. A little rusty, but it cleaned up ok.

    Pano Roof Broke

    Just steps 1-4 (and I've been using a white lithium grease, maybe the Klubersynth 44-702 would work better). The 4 screws holding the glass on are one time use, so need to replace those if you take the glass off. Maybe next time I'll do that.

    Pano Roof Broke

    2015s had v1 of the pano roof. Supposedly the issues are fixed in v2. My May 2015 build has had issues with stuttering and such going back to when it was <1 yr old. Tesla kept re-lubricating it every time I complained, which would 'fix' it for a week or two, then the problems would return...

    Diminished Value in NY

    I used Petty Details - Diminished Value Experts and honestly, given what your claim should be worth, it might be worthwhile to pay another $350. Getting a lawyer is an option too, but likely much more costly. Justin and Jen Petty were very responsive and helpful throughout the whole process.

    Diminished Value in NY

    They straight-up denied my first attempt too. Then offered something stupid like $100. My DV guy was great and essentially wrote each letter for me to send to them. Your DV appraiser hasn't been involved with the negotiations? Insurance companies don't get to decide what their client is...

    Service Bulletin out on Hard Acceleration "Shudder"

    Yeah, failure to use the shim can result in your front motor shearing off its bolts and jumping into the EPAS, causing sudden loss of power steering. Ask me how I know...

    Those are the worst. I've lost so many of them. And a 10mm socket.

    Supercharger Middletown NY

    I was just there last week and took the last stall. As I was leaving, another car was coming in and I wondered to myself when they were going to add the other stalls. Good news!

    SAE vs CHAdeMO

    I'm sure that's not all of them either. Bet it'd show more if you zoomed in on regions. I know of several in the NJ/NY area.

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    Not that I'm aware of, but others are more knowledgeable on that subject than I. Disassembly to change the gateway SD card is a bit more invasive than the Tegra because the board the Tegra mounts to needs to be removed as well. Overall, it's not terribly difficult though, especially if you've...

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    No SD slot on my MCU1. (Lined up a 1.5 behind it so you can see where it would be.) The gateway SD card is in the same place on MCU1, just you have to disassemble the MCU to get it in and out.
  31. M

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    I'm pulling my MCU1 this weekend to swap the tegra, so I'll check for the slot. I'll take a picture of the SD card too, while I have it out.

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    Pull frunk, check the plastic tubes running from the comrpessor. They commonly rub up against poorly-secured wires and eventually they wear through and leak. Can be fixed with some epoxy. Not sure if that would apply to your situation, but it only takes 10 minutes to look so why not.

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    It's a full-sized (not micro) SD card just needs to be FAT32 formatted. I think the one Tesla put in is 4 or 8 GB? You need to remove the CID and disassemble it to get to the gateway SD card slot. I couldn’t find any pictures online, so here’s a few from a 1.5mcu: I removed the board to...

    Drive Unit Replacement

    I paid Tesla $2500 to do my half-shafts & clevis mount (LH DU mount) last September. In early June the front DU sheared off its RH mount bolts and launched into the EPAS motor, causing a loss of power steering. Under my DU warranty, Tesla replaced my half shafts, front DU, front DU mounts &...

    Diminished Value in NY

    Their insurance covers their liability. If you are filing with your own insurance (like a hit & run, or hit by an uninsured person), then DV is not generally possible (I think only one state allows this). But generally, you should have no problem collecting DV in NY. I got 10k for the dude...

    Don't know the details of your case, but DV is available in every state. NY is no exception.

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    Not what I was asking. I meant: is any of the car's hardware disconnected? Door handle unplugged, etc

    Diminished Value in NY

    How old/how many miles? Mine took less QP damage on a similar hit. Car was 4 months old. Got 10k DV for it.

    When can we expect to see a CCS Adapter for the Model S?

    Furthermore, with dual chargers and a normal, dumb J1772 adapter you can get those speeds on a sufficiently-powerful J1772 A/C charger.

    When can we expect to see a CCS Adapter for the Model S?

    80a with dual chargers, HPWC, and a 100a breaker.

    Home Charge Rate Halved

    2016-11-17 20.08.17 by mmccord posted Apr 13, 2020 at 1:22 PM This was my 14-50 outlet after about 18 months of operating without a problem, followed by a week or two of randomly dropping voltage. I replaced the wire & receptacle . Later I replaced the whole thing with a HPWC.

    I retrofit MCU2, IC2, Tuner2, and FSD Computer into my HW2.0 Car

    IC1 is a computer. IC2 is just a second display attached to MCU2. MCU2 cannot work with IC1.

    Home Charge Rate Halved

    Visually/physically check all your connections back to the main panel. You could have a loose or poor electrical connection. This could cause a fire, so it's pretty important to check it.

    Nearly brand new 90 kWh Non-Ludicrous battery pack, v3 - LIMITED TIME

    @wk057 - I'm curious about the 85D -> P90D upgrade path. Am I correct that this would require a rear motor swap? I'm not looking to upgrade my battery until my warranty is up in 2023, but all bets are off then.
  50. M

    Unable to supercharge, normal charging ok

    Bought them both from wk057: Tesla OEM Parts | Products | HSR Motors
