    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...

    SWP: APS off, but no pulse from BPS

    Saw this error message this morning. Any idea what it is for. I could not find any information on it.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Soft top padding deteriorating

    Anyone else have a problem with the "foam" padding in the soft top deteriorating and turning into a fine yellow dust? I initially thought it was just spring pollen but then discovered that the yellow foam padding had deteriorated into a fine dust that was just getting out everywhere. I tried...

    OpenEVSE - coupon?

    I am looking to get an OpenEVSE Advance charger for my Roadster. The price is not too bad but I heard that current owners get a 10% discount code, so I was wondering if anyone has one … Thank you!

    Accident (ugh)

    My beautiful Tesla Roadster was in an accident last week. (I am fine, though it is/was very traumatizing.) So far it's been a nightmare dealing with the insurance companies (mine and the other side's) even though the accident clearly was not my fault. I honestly drive like a grandmother in my...

    Low Beam Problem

    My new Roadster has a problem with the TRS Xenon low beams. I initially thought it was just a broken bulb but that did not solve the problem - no light. Maybe the ballast or canbus adapter is broken? As far as I can tell there are three parts in sequence: 1. A black box labeled Morimoto 3Five...

    Title Skipping

    Looked at another Roadster today that I would like to buy BUT: the title was not transferred to the new (current) owner. It's filled out by the previous owner with blanks for the new owner which I supposedly can just put my name in. I am in CA and I am a bit weary that this will be a huge mess -...
