    2008 (or 9?) Roadster #278

    In the VDS there is an information screen which also lists a VIN and Build Date ... what does it say ?

    OVMS AT&T GoPhone SIM card installation guide

    Thanks, Tom. Well now, that was simply too obvious for me to figure out all by myself :redface: I did that, but still have the "Permission denied" response to "STAT? MYNEWPW" if done from another cell phone. I am working with Mark on this ...

    OVMS AT&T GoPhone SIM card installation guide

    So ... <embarrassed> The originally registered phone was lost quite some time ago; the Android app (on a separate tablet) has been used successfully since original setup. I think I remember the correct MYNEWPASSWD, but any query attempt using a new cell phone with (for example) "STAT...

    Open Vehicle Monitor System (OVMS) - Technical Discussion

    :-) Sounds good :-) Is the 13A something of a (british/HK) household current limit, or enforced for distinguishing a cooldown cycle (good idea) ? Or some other reason ? If the VDS was limited to 12A, will it still enforce 13A, and will it revert to 12A for manually initiated charging ...

    Open Vehicle Monitor System (OVMS) - Technical Discussion

    Ok ... so it appears we are seeing TmaxBrick. The next question revolves around the CoolDown feature for version 2.5.2. What will be the parameter that controls termination of the CoolDown ? Could Tmax represent a value too far out of line with Tave ? Would it be a "waste" to continue...

    "Thank You !" to all OVMS contributors. This App (and the related hardware) is much appreciated. :cool: :smile: Just got everything installed today. However ... I would consider the "Battery Temperature" ("BT") to be the most important parameter for monitoring (JMHO). And -- based on...

    "BSM Isolation fault" "ID:283 Data:0x2400000" (not sure how many zeros after the "24") Roadster 1.5. Happened yesterday after doing a wash at self-serve with high-pressure gun. Problem is, however, not that I couldn't charge, but that the car wouldn't start ! I had left it "ON" during the...

    1.5 Roadster Tire Thread

    Try reducing the difference of rear versus front psi. In other words, where Tesla recommends 30F/40R reduce that 10psi difference to 7 psi, thus using (for example) 31F/38R. See what happens and report back. HTH. The 2.0+ has a "Tire Learning" mode that does not exist on the 1.5. Also the...

    EXCELLENT info ! Thank you djp. Question for the Canadian Roadster 2.0: is the blue always blinking, or only in winter ? Reason: I believe it should be solid blue (while handshaking with EVSE; pilot signal, etc), and blue blinking only while battery is being heated prior to the (blinking...

    Roadster ChargePortRing Colors

    Thanks, guys. I am not so much worried about "flickering". But yes, those are the colors I am aware of, and the "speed" of "blinking" (not flickering) is controlled by the firmware. Some colors blink, but not all :-) which brings up a (mystery-related) question: which color(s) can blink ...

    I am trying to solve a mystery. I do have a theory, but without revealing it ... let me start by asking as follows: Does anyone know how the different colors are produced in the LED Ring around the Chargeport of the Roadster ? Are there separate LEDs for each color ? ( White, blue...

    Is there a feature which allows the creation of a cumulative history file ("CHF") from all of your old individual TAR files ?

    I know the following reference is to a very old post (almost 2 years), but I believe the info is still useful, if not 100% accurate due to its age (for example: Newport Beach Tesla Store: was probably converted to J plug ?). But the public locations (non-Tesla-store) should still be the same...

    Charging a Roadster with Varying Terminal Voltage

    Weird ... originally worked for me. Anyway ... look at the Google Map and click on the icon in front of "Florin" (south of Sacramento, on 99, above "Elk Grove"). If you "hover" over that icon it says "Lowe's of Elk Grove: Up". After clicking, comments are on the right.

    Other possible causes from what I have heard: a) If the USB stick has a large number of other files in other folders, or deep sub-folders hierarchy, or many files in the root folder ... it may also cause issues. b) I heard one report that a "CHKDSK /F" on the USB stick solved someone's...

    2.0 / 2.5 Roadster / Roadster Sport Tire Thread

    What are you cold PSI pressures ? Try increasing the rears by 2 psi, or creating an additional 2 psi differential between rear/front ... this will depend on how close your current settings are to recommended pressures. HTH. EDIT: I corrected this post below ... try the opposite (thanks, hcsharp!)

    Roadster Owner Based Study of Battery Pack Capacity Over Time

    Of course, he means HOURS. But yes, that would be a nice "reminder" feature. As an immediate alternative the Trip Meter (which also logs hours) could be used -- if you don't mind resetting (and checking) it regularly.

    Roadster Owner Based Study of Battery Pack Capacity Over Time

    What's interesting here is (assuming you did not charge after taking it out of "Storage Mode") that the car, even if it was fully charged at the start of StorageMode, still had 142+ (+30? depending on how you drove) Ideal Miles left after "the last few months" sitting in StorageMode. So ... do...

    Traction control with new tires

    Try adjusting the tire pressures, keeping the fronts near recommended, but lowering the rears a little. The T/C on acceleration probably will be impossible to fix until the tires are worn-in a little, but the pressure adjustment should take care of the T/C during regen problem.

    Walgreens planning to offer EV charging nationwide

    The two locations I visited in Elk Grove, CA have the stations installed at the REAR of the building, one corner to the "right" (if you exit the store) -- if that makes sense. (The entrance is at a corner location.) So, actually, they did it "RIGHT" ;-) ... being a less congested location :-)

    Umc 2.0

    Hmmm. True. Of course I don't expect a Model S owner to steal. But ... you make a good point, so ... to be on the safe side, the car should tell the difference between a UMC and an EVSE being plugged in and only release the UMC if it's the owner's fob. :smile:

    Umc 2.0

    If TM is going to put proprietary infrastructure in place it actually makes sense that ANY fob can unlock the cable on ANY Model S. That would make sharing the EVSE much easier. It does not unlock the car, obviously, just the charge port/cable. So ... if I am done charging, I can plug in the...

    For a 1.5 Roadster the location is on the rear right of the car, along the right edge of the PEM. But I am not sure it also disables the ESS. On the 1.5 it appears to only disable the SRS, but the fact that is located along the PEM where the main HV cables attach ... hmmm ... does anyone know...
