    Tesla Battery Warranty

    There are no specifics, the warranty says 30% degradation. But is there actually any example of a battery with more than 30% degradation during the 8 years warranty ? One Tesla technician told me that either the battery keeps it's charge with minimal degradation (actually most batteries performs...

    Maximum battery charge level reduced and charge complete?

    I got this message in january 2020 on my 2013 S85. I contacted the service center and they told me the battery was to be changed under warranty. I've always been very skeptical about this error message and the subsequent battery change. I have the feeling that this message was fake and was a way...

    Maximum battery charge level reduced

    Just got a replacement with this exact same part number and mine is a total *sugar*. Are talking about rated range ? (not nominal). Because at 50% I have 145km (90mi) so this is another clear indication my battery was ****ed up from the get go.

    Maximum battery charge level reduced

    YES ! So the final episode is... I'm screwed ! Tesla affirm my battery is better than my old one (no proof whatsoever I have to believe them) even so the rated range is 30km less than my previous one and the quantity of kwh I can charge in a supercharger is 5kwh less. My 'new" battery can...

    Maximum battery charge level reduced

    Just called Tesla Service to explain my range loss problem with my "new" battery pack. They told me that the battery needs about 2 WEEKS of charge/discharge in order to stabilize and that "cells" will be activated during the process and that my range will increase progressively up to full...

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    My previous battery gave me 215 miles range before I got the infamus "Maximum battery charge level reduced"... after replacement under warranty I'm down to 186 miles of max. range. So DO NOT INSTALL ANY UPDATE ANYMORE... EVER !

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    I honestly don't remember the exact the version number but it was the version that said they were making change in the battery management algorithm. When the car was at Tesla Service I received on the phone App a software download/installation message, so they obviously installed another version...

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    My battery has just been replaced under warranty and I've lost 12% of range, from 9% degradation with my old pack to 21% degradation with the refurbished one ! My S85 has now a 85kwh pack that could barely hold 64kwh ! If they don't want to replace that shitty pack with a good one I'm gonna sue...

    Maximum battery charge level reduced

    I've done the calculation of the capping based on another thread... Conclusion : my pack has 64.3kwh usuable !!! Since I charged from 1 to 98 soc and the computer told me I've charged 62kwh this make sense. So they screw me big time !!!

    Maximum battery charge level reduced

    I have no idea, the technician just told me that new battery needs to be calibrated and that's why I have such a poor range... I've done a 1%-98% supercharge and I just got 300km of range... and the computer said that I recharged 62kwh of energy... so this is a joke. The calibration will never...

    Maximum battery charge level reduced

    Tesla just came back to me and they have run a remote diagnostic on the car. Result : high voltage battery failure. I'm gonna have a replacement under warranty. No idea of the delay or the type of battery they are going to install. Will keep you posted.

    Maximum battery charge level reduced

    I just received the same warning two days ago on my S85 12/2013. The new maximum range is now 137km, I can charge at home and on supercharger but it is very slow. I requested an appointment with the Tesla Mobile Service for 27th of January. My car has 219.000km and it is the original battery pack.

    I bought the car used from a Tesla dealershop in Belgium (www.nikola-brussels.com) with 206.000km in August 2019. I only supercharge since I have a grounding issue at home preventing the car from charging. Every 3 days I go to the supercharger near me and charge to 95% then I go home and...
