    Open Vehicle Monitor System (OVMS) - Technical Discussion

    I have one OVMS which now works beautifully, including the location at home turning the cell modem off and on when entering/leaving the home location. I have another OVMS module which is giving me nothing but trouble, including the local website interface being unresponsive. I did notice that I...

    roadster 2010 rear view camera installation

    I am in the process of doing the same. I installed a Joyingauto Headunit which is awesome. You probably need to remove the entire dash area - potentially twice, since you may need to figure out wiring, then buy the relevant ISO part, then install the new headunit. At that point it is easy to...

    Want to buy: Roadster Tow Hitch

    etrailer.com just referred me to Torklift. I really need someone that made them and is willing to make more. Torklift and Uhaul no longer have the measurements and would need a car to make a new batch. Curt never responded. That only leaves the couple of custom ones that were made if anyone has...

    Want to buy: Roadster Tow Hitch

    I guess I missed the Tow Hitch that recently showed up for sale. I have been desperately trying to find a tow hitch to buy or find a place that can make a tow hitch for our Roadsters in LA. I even ended up getting two tow hitches from Uhaul because they showed it for sale but obviously sent the...

    Is there a resource to show what language the OVMS uses or a repository of scripts?

    Cooling cycle non-stop?

    Maybe try the service disconnect? First in the VMS (make sure the car is open and unlocked - i usually have the roof off when doing any work) and then by unplugging the big cable (someone more qualified should describe the proper procedure, you can maybe find a proper description how to do it)

    Open Vehicle Monitor System (OVMS) - Technical Discussion

    Is there any way to change the config so the device only updates GPS location every couple of minutes - and maybe other info once or twice per day? PS: The modem seems to also always stay off upon some reboot, despite the checkbox in settings saying otherwise.

    Open Vehicle Monitor System (OVMS) - Technical Discussion

    Thank you. I use Server v2. I just turned off TLS. The rest is default, though I did also change the power management settings for the model to off after 1 hour (I want it primarily as a theft tracker) Where do I find the 'module summary'? Any way to force the modem off when Wifi is available...

    SWP: APS off, but no pulse from BPS

    Weird. Showed once and then never again. Maybe it was an error during charging. We sometimes have mini power outages.

    Lots of wiring questions (Homelink and the purple plug cable)

    Got a new project fixing some stuff on a second Roadster with lots of cable issues in the dash area: 0. If anyone has a wiring diagram, I would love that. The service manual seems to assume that wires require no servicing. (Ha!) 1. Homelink cable: Does anyone know where the homelink cable goes...

    Broken Windshield Wiper Arm

    You can order the arm from them. It's actually cheaper than buying the Lotus arm. Just happened to mine a few months ago. I removed the arm in the meantime. Keep all the parts!! Especially the little plastic bit that connects the blade and the arm. The new arm will come without that! I also...

    Roadster Battery and PEM for the future

    I am curious if anyone has considered any NON-Tesla Roadster options for the battery and the PEM. Gruber and some others are obviously doing a great job refurbishing and repairing the PEM and the battery but it probably won't be a long-term solution, given the closed source nature of the...

    Program Key Remote

    I tried it but it did not work. Not sure why not. The manual is pretty clear that it should work but my car had extensive changes to the wiring made (very different stereo setup), so I am wondering if the wire got clipped.

    1.5 owners: How to ditch your JVC HU for one with ISO connections.

    I switched my (after market) radio for a more modern, android-based radio. (Best thing I ever did) My recommendation would be to look up the wiring/pin layout based on an installation manual for the old radio ... and then matching it to the new radio. In my case, I just got a bunch of wire...

    DIY: Roadster 2.5 PEM cleaning - step by step

    So I tried to get my 1.5 PEM off today, since my PEM has been overheating since I had it in for annual service with Javier. So much for letting a "pro" do it. I was progressing nicely until I got to the 13mm bolts that hold the PEM to the batter (one by the pump reservoir and one on the other...

    Battery Service Required (Battery Bleed Scan) Error

    I am starting to think that the annual service at Javier's screwed something up, since I had no issues prior to it and now there are suddenly multiple faults. Driving the car for the first time since the above issue, it all worked fine until I was driving back home: I live up a pretty steep hill...

    Battery Service Required (Battery Bleed Scan) Error

    Ugh. I have been driving my Roadster pretty rarely due to COVID and I discovered the dreaded Battery Service Required error message. Going into the VMS, the debug code is apparently Battery Bleed Scan. The car charges fine as far as I can tell. Below are pictures of the VMS. Anything I should...

    Caution - Annual Service - Car power-down - GPS issue

    I have a 1.5 so probably have an 80% chance of having the GPS sensor that doesn't have the bug. I was just going to take advantage of the cable being in LA. But for $300+ it's cheaper to but the alternate sensor (if I ever need it)

    Any Interest in JdeMo Bulk Buy?

    Just saw the poll stats: interested in the combined Chademo/CCS but would have to cost less than $3k. The Roadster is really just a city car, so this is a nice to have and not a must have. Also: why would we ever pay more than it cost before (when there was no BULK buy)? Given the volume buy...
