    12V battery. "Will I ever buy another Tesla? Guess."

    Yeah, it has an additional step or two to remove the inner front trunk liner, but otherwise the same process. Sort of. It is a physically smaller deep cycle battery. More likely to find a replacement at a Batteries Plus store than a Pep Boys. It is more closely related to a UPS battery than an...

    Soft Close Frunk

    That's where I'm at. Waiting for a sale or group buy. I wonder how many orders are needed to qualify for group buy pricing? Do we have a TeslaOffer rep as a member?

    Supercharger - Lafayette, LA

    So that car was likely a 2014 in Brown Metallic. It was extremely clean looking, I wouldn't have guessed it was a 2014, but that was the last year for that color. Very fetching color. Shame Tesla has such limited color choices currently.

    Soft Close Frunk

    Watching this thread. Does it lock out the "open" feature while in Drive? On both the FOB and touchscreen? I'd hate for an accidental press to result in a face full of frunk lid.

    Supercharger - Lafayette, LA

    Stopped this morning. No power. :( Shout out to the gorgeous "Walnut" colored 1st gen Model S that was there "charging". It wasn't Signature Red or Titanium Metallic, something in between. No match on the 1st gen color thread on this forum. I hope the owner wasn't in a bind. There was no one...

    Supercharger - Lafayette, LA

    I stopped by Friday and no power. I stop every couple of days. I post my findings on the Facebook forum mainly because it is local folks. I'll try to remember to post updates here as well.

    Battery replacement 11/15 P90D

    The 265 is the shown range on a 100% charge at home. I don't get anywhere near that. Yes, the battery label shows it is a V1. 12/2015 build date. Yeah, I don't think I'm anywhere near that. Maybe on my next trip I'll use Range Mode and Chill. I don't think I see 3xx on any regular basis... 4xx...

    Where does the liquid chilling occur? Within each pedestal? Or back at the transformer pad by a single big chiller?

    Supercharger - Lafayette, LA

    I drive by about every week. They haven't made much progress since I talked to the guy painting the lines about 4 weeks ago. They took the fence down and cleaned things up nicely.

    Battery replacement 11/15 P90D

    Factory P90DL with V1 battery. At 100% charge on HPWC at home shows ~265 miles. This is what it showed since new. The difference in my case is what it actually gets. On a recent trip between Austin and Houston, I only had 35 miles left when we arrived at the Houston supercharger on a full charge...

    Saved by the Tesla cameras

    I like the Model X cameo at 6:00. Have you gotten this resolved by now? I would think your insurance would take care of you and go after the other driver. It's what they do around here (Louisiana).

    Preventive eMMC replacement on MCU1

    Since you've taken on the task of creating the clone daughterboard, are you going to offer copies of the board to others? If not the board, full schematics, parts list and CAD files? I'd be interested. Thanks.

    Battery replacement 11/15 P90D

    The 100 battery is a higher voltage than the 90. It's "only" about 10%, so maybe the components can handle the overvoltage. Either Jason modified the output (transformer or something) or he's running the risk of burning his BMC, controller, motors, etc.

    South Central Louisana Owners Rejoice!

    For Oklahoma? Still in the planning stage for the station in Lafayette. Nothing new to report. I drove by the site 2 weeks ago and didn't see any markings or other progress.

    Need New Tires - 21" - What's Best?

    I've never heard of the FK610's and TireRack doesn't even list them. https://www.tirerack.com/tires/falken-tires.jsp

    Need New Tires - 21" - What's Best?

    How do the FK610's compare to the FK510's?

    Need New Tires - 21" - What's Best?

    Car model and miles you get out of these tires please.

    Need New Tires - 21" - What's Best?

    Good point. My environment doesn't have ice and snow, so that could be a benefit of the more expensive tires, but they are all listed as "summer performance tires". The Falken's get great traction in the rain in my experience. A spirited jump from a traffic light in the rain has just a small...

    Need New Tires - 21" - What's Best?

    Okay, cost is normally not a significant factor as the various tires are normally "close" in price. Apparently not the case on Tire Rack for 265/35ZR21 (101Y) XL rear tires... FALKEN AZENIS FK510 $208 PIRELLI P ZERO (PZ4) $308 MICHELIN PILOT SUPER SPORT $367 CONTINENTAL CONTISPORTCONTACT 5P...

    Need New Tires - 21" - What's Best?

    Well, looks like my unfortunate prediction is becoming reality. 9100 miles and I'm pretty much on the wear indicators. Another 1000 miles and I'll be at threads. That sucks. So, I guess I'll order the Conti's. 2 sets of tires a year gets expensive.

    Using API to gather individual battery cell voltage?

    I'll do some research in the area you've indicated, but it doesn't look likely. The link you posted is for the Openpilot wiki and doesn't say anything about sniffing CANBUS for individual battery cell voltages. In that thought, it seems very likely that individual battery cell information is...

    Using API to gather individual battery cell voltage?

    Good morning. Were you able to gather the information for the Model S? I'm still interested. Thanks.
  23. Dameon

    Using API to gather individual battery cell voltage?

    Model S. Thanks.
  24. Dameon

    Using API to gather individual battery cell voltage?

    Correct. All my efforts are around the Model S and occasionally the Model X (there are some similarities). That is very strange. Are the displays in the Model 3 consoles model specific like the S? I don't spent much time in the Model 3. They must be different in the more prominent options: like...

    Using API to gather individual battery cell voltage?

    Interesting perspective. I always assumed the specs were in some back end Tesla database and they used the VIN as the SeqID field. I know they can't extract all the option codes solely from the VIN (not enough detail fields). Of course, the big options are there, but certainly not color, wheel...

    Using API to gather individual battery cell voltage?

    Thanks for the response Willow. I have followed Tim Dorr and his posts on here and GitHub. I think I've seen this list, but I'm not sure it is comprehensive or there are some "hidden" values. I've read so much in the last couple of years, that it could have easily been another BMS output I'm...

    Using API to gather individual battery cell voltage?

    Great! Care to share the method?
  28. Dameon

    Using API to gather individual battery cell voltage?

    That was going to be another direction. I have the "console cable" for my model, but I'd like to use the API if possible. Failing that, my next question will be what parameters need to be passed in the console connection to gather that data.
  29. Dameon

    Using API to gather individual battery cell voltage?

    I thought I saw this information somewhere before, but it may have been a screen dump from one of the Tesla hackers rooting efforts and not an output from the API. I trouble-shooting a potential battery pack issue and would like to gather my own data in conjunction with Tesla Service running a...

    Supercharger - Scott, LA (Lafayette Parish)

    I wonder how long we can expect to wait before it's up and working? Is there a typical timeframe to go from "permit" to "active" status? Likely different for every installation.
  31. Dameon

    Supercharger - Scott, LA (Lafayette Parish)

    Awesome catch nh-srt8! That isn't anywhere near the new library. That's the Louisiana exit in front of Target, Office Depot and PetCo. Much more suitable location for a supercharger. This is exciting.

    Supercharger - Scott, LA (Lafayette Parish)

    It appears it will be a generic (likely pay) charging station. My contacts are not responding to emails for some reason. I talked to a buddy at LCG, but this is an LPL project, not an LCG project. I'm hoping it will be a few Tesla chargers alongside the "pay for" charger.

    WTB: Nose Cone - Did I miss the Classifieds sub-forum?

    Okay, I still haven't done much with this (mainly because I'm busy with other things), but I was thinking I could wrap my nose cone in carbon fiber vinyl. I think that would look good if done properly and with the right material. I assume there must be a way to apply wrap to a convex surface and...

    Windshield Repacement and AP Camera Recalibrate

    My install is scheduled for Saturday at Safelite. They had to order the windshield (as expected) and they said the camera will auto calibrate. They seemed pretty confident in their abilities.

    85D vs P85D vs P90DL

    As the owner of a Titanium with tan P90DL, I'd suggest that route. $60K seems REALLY cheap for a P90DL. Maybe I just haven't been watching prices. What year is that car? Mileage?
  36. Dameon

    Windshield Repacement and AP Camera Recalibrate

    I assume this should have been "even though they didn't have to"? So the process I've been approved for by my Service Advisor is: Order and pay for the windshield from Tesla, it gets shipped to a local Safelite facility, they come out to install it, Ranger does the recalibration on-site (or I...

    Windshield Repacement and AP Camera Recalibrate

    I did a search and there's a lot of dialog about windshield replacement and camera recalibration, but nothing about what my service advisor told me today. So my car seems to attract rock chips. I've accumulated 7 in the last year. My insurance covers 3 repairs per year, then they dictate a...

    Model S 2013 US -> EU conversion

    According to the media, most wrecks in Tesla's are autopilot failures that cause the Tesla to plow into things. Finding clean taillights at the Tesla salvage yard should be easy. All you have to do is find a Tesla salvage yard.

    Model S 2013 US -> EU conversion

    You are correct... typo on my part. You would want to test the load of the TURNING signals, not the BRAKE signals. I guess it wouldn't make much sense to measure the brake lamp load since it isn't tripping the thermal contact. o_O

    MS P85D wheel spacers?

    Tongue in cheek I'm sure, but if not, I wouldn't touch a thing on that perfect car!
  41. Dameon

    MS P85D wheel spacers?

    This is an interesting development. What did Motorsport Tech say when you contacted them (as you surely should have)? Did you not notice that you had several lug nuts missing? Do you know what spacers were on what wheels (i.e. which wheel positions had the sheared bolts)? Did you torque the...

    Model S 2013 US -> EU conversion

    The "old school" method is to add a resistive load. I couldn't tell you what additional load you need, but you could figure it out from measuring the load the brake lights add and start with a resistor that matched that. I would be curious to know if Tesla used a traditional spring steel...

    Battery replacement 11/15 P90D

    Oedro Model S All weather mats for $65?

    That worked. Thanks for the quick response!

    MS P85D wheel spacers?

    I used a heat gun and a piece of 2" PVC with a cap on it. It gave a nice smooth, curved, surface to push against the inner fender. Surprisingly, it didn't seem to help much. There's now a slightly concave area, but it still rubs. My next effort is to investigate how to pull that inner fender...

    MS P85D wheel spacers?

    Mine is only slightly larger and on flat surfaces or otherwise. 40% of 245mm is 98mm or about 3.9". The radius of a 20" wheel should be about 10" plus the 3.9" height of the tire, so 13.9" between the center of the hub and the inner fender. This doesn't account for the width of the tire (about...
  47. Dameon

    MS P85D wheel spacers?

    Unlikely. Without a spacer, turn your wheels and look at the clearance... it's very close with no spacer. I would think some enterprising vendor would create an "anti-rubbing inner fender" for sale. A quick visual inspection gives me the impression that isn't a big piece of plastic. It looks...

    Need New Tires - 21" - What's Best?

    I have about 2000 miles on the FK510's. They seem to be wearing normally, meaning they'll likely be ready for replacement at the "usual" 10K miles. Stay tuned. I'm taking a road trip to Austin in April. That might be the last hurrah for these tires. I hope not.
