    Warranty on 'goodwill' service?

    So here's an update regarding the warped rotors. I will be picking up the vehicle later this afternoon. To me their justification sounds like BS but perhaps the informed folks on here can correct me. Can powder coated wheels cause such issue? 'Test drove vehicle. Performed further inspection...

    Model S long range refresh pulls hard left on hard acceleration. Need help!

    Pull to the side 100% on hard acceleration. It was worse from the stand still. Initially, the service center said it was torque steer and they recommended to do the alignment but that didn't fix the issue. Next, they said it was the suspension bolts that needed to be tighten up and that didn't...

    Model S long range refresh pulls hard left on hard acceleration. Need help!

    I had the exact same issue on mine. It took me three different service visits to get it resolved. The issue was with the steering rack column. As per the tech, the steering rack was unable to find the 'true zero' therefore the right side/tire was compensating and that's what caused the vehicle...

    Warranty on 'goodwill' service?

    Found it in the service manual. FYI -- it's Correction Code 33013000 in case any one else wants to look it up.

    Warranty on 'goodwill' service?

    Exactly my thoughts as well. But it seems like Tesla likes to use 'goodwill' to limit their responsibilities after the repair has been done. Could it be because of my powder coated wheels? I've Model X (20 inch) wheels that are powder coated in matte/satin black. Maybe that's causing the pads...

    Bay Area tint and rim/tire shop

    Cal Wheel Technology in Belmont, CA. I paid $110 to repair curb rash on my Model S wheel (20). Excellent work and price!

    Warranty on 'goodwill' service?

    But Tesla will repair even the warranty items as 'good will' instead of warranty repair or similar. Is this a some type of loop hole to limit their responsibility?

    Warranty on 'goodwill' service?

    Long story short, I had some issues with the brake pads/rotors on my Model S. Now I do know that the brake pads/rotors are wear and tear item so they aren't covered under vehicle warranty unless the initial supplied parts were defective. In my case, it was exactly that, the brake rotors were...

    For Sale: BNIB Neurio Meter (Tesla)

    Please move this post to 'For Sale' section if it should be listed there. I read and it looks like it's only for vehicles/vehicle accessories. I received an extra set of Neurio meter from Tesla that we didn't end up using for my solar installation. This item is a Tesla branded Neurio meter (not...

    Lets see pictures of who has the most crazy blade disconnects

    That's correct. Tesla had stated that the exposed gas lines must be relocated/hidden.

    Using a Credit Card or Paypal to pay for TESLA Solar

    Highly doubt you can use it for loan. I tried many times and they only accepted ACH for the down payment. If it's in full, I think you have a better chance of them accepting a CC for it.

    Electrical issues with new load center

    Yeah I wish I knew that but it looks like our electrician used the part of the kitchen circuit since the unit is right across in the attic.
  17. komrade

    Electrical issues with new load center

    You are correct. The thermostat is getting the 24v from the HVAC unit that's on 120v (same circuit as the microwave). The main AC unit is 240v/50 amp.
  18. komrade

    Electrical issues with new load center

    Update: Electrician just left few moments ago. Below are the findings: Microwave and Nest thermostat share the same kitchen circuit. Therefore, both lost power when the 15 amp breaker tripped. The AC did have power but obviously won't run if the thermostat is offline. The breaker was...

    Tesla is coming out later today to look at it. I will provide updates after the visit!

    Electrical issues with new load center

    I see. If I understand you correctly, are you saying that 12 ga wire (purple) is being used for AC? I see a thicker ga wire in the middle on the 50 amp and that looks like the wiring for AC to me.

    Electrical issues with new load center

    Understood! I will be requesting Tesla to send out an electrician to look at this since it's all their work in the load center. I just don't like signing the SVA for potential $200 charge if they come up with BS reasons and say it's not their fault...
  23. komrade

    Electrical issues with new load center

    It does look like 12 ga wire. I will have to check it again. The neutral wire seems to be right below the pink wire in white. Is it normal for AC to be off as well if 15 amp trips? Does the whole breaker becomes inoperable until reset?
  24. komrade

    Electrical issues with new load center

    Here's the picture with the cover removed. Breaker is highlighted in red box. AC doesn't work either. I've to reset the 15 AMP breaker and then it all works until it trips again lol I'm not sure of the microwave breaker size in the previous panel.

    Not sure why they are sharing the circuit but AC is 240V.

    Electrical issues with new load center

    I just spoke with Tesla service over the phone. It looks SVA is a new requirement and is being enforced for all site visits.

    I'm going to try and replicate the issue later today. I tried chatting in and both times I was told that Site Visit Agreement is required to schedule the service. Yes, the AC and microwave both are on the same quad breaker.

    Electrical issues with new load center

    Just received my PTO this week and the system was finally importing! Later in the day, I noticed one of the breaker (quad 15/50) had tripped when I turned on the AC and the microwave. The quad breaker is in the load center and all work for was completed by Tesla. I reached out to Tesla this...

    coolant leak in rear drive unit (12k miles on odometer) and Tesla says someone touched it so the warranty NOT applicable

    Why would they start working on the car without obtaining authorization from the owner? Consumer protection exist for this exact reason.

    coolant leak in rear drive unit (12k miles on odometer) and Tesla says someone touched it so the warranty NOT applicable

    Did you accept the initial estimate before they did any work? If not, I doubt they can charge you if you never agreed/accepted the invoice/estimate. FYI -- Auto Repair Basics 'An estimate – Before beginning any repairs, the auto shop must provide you with an estimate showing the estimated...

    coolant leak in rear drive unit (12k miles on odometer) and Tesla says someone touched it so the warranty NOT applicable

    'After they do an estimate and make a conclusion, that ends up in the system and the next SC would be biased by that...' -- this isn't entirely true. I had issues with my car and one service center denied to cover it under warranty because of BS reasons. I took it to another one and they...

    coolant leak in rear drive unit (12k miles on odometer) and Tesla says someone touched it so the warranty NOT applicable

    @sparklehunt If you are unable to check out another service center (I can recommend one near you), it maybe helpful to file a BBB claim. In my opinion, this is a very effective way to escalate issues to higher ups (service related). Good luck!

    Powerwall-Monitor: Is this normal?

    I'm running everything on a VM. I wasn't aware that InfluxDB will grab all the available memory. Most likely that's what causing the issue. What's the decent cloud/hardware solution to run this on? GCP free tier clearly isn't worth it.
  42. komrade

    Powerwall-Monitor: Is this normal?

    I see. I'm running the instance on GCP. What's the recommend memory allocation for Grafana/InfluxDB? PS: Is there anyway to check the logs of Tesla Gateway to see if the connectivity is being dropped?
  43. komrade

    Powerwall-Monitor: Is this normal?

    Running the Grafana dashboard and noticed that the data stream is occasionally offline/no data for few minutes everyday. The Gateway is connected via the ethernet. WIFI is off. See the following image. Is this normal? Thanks!
