    Is there an update on out of warranty battery replacement cost

    I Good point - should have checked the sticker. Looks like I got lucky and Tesla snuck in a 90kWh pack. I’d assume DRasheed’s story would be more typical with an 85 replacing an 85. I did try out supercharging today - from 17% to 90%, started at 116kW, 90kW in the middle, and 40kW by the end...

    Is there an update on out of warranty battery replacement cost

    Finally! After 4 months (of driving a loaner, so no complaints here) the battery replacement is complete. Didn’t help the first battery installed failed during installation so they had to order another. Interestingly, the loaner was a 2015 S with only 60k miles, yet it already had abysmal...

    Is there an update on out of warranty battery replacement cost

    State is VA, but battery is two weeks shipping so assuming it is from NV or CA. I wasn’t offered an option for new, so that might not be available for the earlier model years, but might be able to find out more when I get the battery installed this Thursday.

    Is there an update on out of warranty battery replacement cost

    Adding a data point for out of warranty battery replacement for those interested…2013 S85, 135k miles, $10,500 quote for remanufactured pack (1088815-01-B) plus 2hr labor ($380) plus tax ($630). With a 4yr/50k warranty, this won out for me over going a 3rd party repair.

    12V battery life

    First time it happened, I waited ~4 weeks before replacing with no issues other than the warning. At that point the 12V was about 5 years old. Second time I got the warning that 12V battery was about 4 years old and I ended up doing a hard reset and the warning went away. It’s been about 5...

    12v Battery Charging Schedule

    I haven't been able to find detailed info on the 12v battery charging on the forum, so I figured I'd ask...then commence the experiments. I'm interested in: 1 - min/max volts (or time) that trigger charging commands from the main pack 2 - any difference in behavior depending on if the car is...

    Main Battery Replacement

    Had a main pack failure ~25k in September 2014, vin P13102, 18 months old, not an A pack (can't remember exactly which one it was though). A friend was driving so I don't know the exact details, but shutdown occured a minute or two after warnings appeared. Never had any degredation or issues...

    Power drain while idle (Vampire Load)

    I was on 5.0 build 1.35.98 at the time. I don't recall being able to enable/disable sleep mode with that build. Also, others may have been seeing better results with 1.35.102.

    Power drain while idle (Vampire Load)

    Must be REM sleep - a cars gotta dream, right? I agree, though it is significantly better than 4.5. I was hoping after a week or so of no activity, it'd go from sleep to hibernate. Maybe that'll be a 5.1 upgrade. :) brianman - it pained me also to leave it for so long, but business called. My...

    Power drain while idle (Vampire Load)

    Thought I'd quantify the idle power drain with 5.0. The car was left unplugged for 5 weeks. I checked the charge (using the iphone app) less and less frequently to see if it would go into some deeper sleep eventually. Overall vampire loss was 6.2 miles per day. Also, I'd say at first look...
