    2013 P85 Defective Rear Toe Link

    I ended up getting Unplugged rear adjustable camber arms. My tire wear has improved significantly. I feel my tires after a long drive and its much cooler all around. Camber is set to roughly -0.9 on both sides, compared to -2.5 previously.

    Access to the heater assembly?

    Approx $950CAD. They replaced a few fuses in there and resealed with new sealant. This was after I replaced the PTC heater core myself.

    2013 P85 Defective Rear Toe Link

    I'm thinking of getting some aftermarket adjustable camber arms! My new toe links are working well now.

    Access to the heater assembly?

    Tesla service ended up replacing my 1st gen DCDC converter heater fuse. I personally replaced the heater core too as a precaution. The PTC heater core replacement went well. It's hidden behind the MCU in the passenger footwell. Lots of trim to remove to get there. DCDC Converter is located...

    2013 P85 Defective Rear Toe Link

    They have moved me to Sept 7th for service and offered an enterprise loaner vehicle. Will take a few days. Much better time frame for a defective installed part.

    2013 P85 Defective Rear Toe Link

    I've been waiting since Aug 10th for a parts warranty replacement toe link from Tesla SC Langley. Now they have me booked in for Sept 23rd and there seems to be a lot of play in the rear toe link. All four of my tires have extreme inner wear. Tesla admits they installed a defective part or...

    changed front louvers, now AC does not work - 2013 Model S P85

    Pulled thermal controller fuse, reinserted and now AC works again. Louvre flaps open and close now. Still some errors remain for thermal controller.

    changed front louvers, now AC does not work - 2013 Model S P85

    Hey guys, I replaced the microswitches in my passenger door handle, then replaced my front louvers today. Nothing was damaged but the car doesn't want to start the AC. I made sure to install the louvers in the closed flap state on both sides. I could hear them slightly move when plugging them...

    New 85kWH battery for my 2013 P85+

    Cotran Consulting - the guys who sent me a rooted Tegra said they could change my digital badge to a P90 with the included unlock. Still thinking about doing that or waiting for a rootable MCU2. Not sure if Tesla would rebadge.

    New 85kWH battery for my 2013 P85+

    See my thread if you want to know what happened. I had a 85kWh B type pack before it died on the road during the last few weeks of warranty.. Here we are today with a new 90kWh software limited pack of 91.6%. Tesla is offering me $2900 to unlock the extra capacity, or Cotran Consulting is...

    2013 Model S P85 vehicle shut down while driving

    Soft capped 100% is 4.1V cell limit. I also noticed Supercharging will pull 28kW or so until 100%. The estimated time remaining is accurate now. It feels faster when acceleration, but it could be power limited by the cell voltage limit.

    2013 Model S P85 vehicle shut down while driving

    I haven't got my car back yet. I only use root access for observation and diagnostics. I don't have the experience to change anything via root access. With the motor replacement back in Aug 2020, Tesla was weird about the root access but just made sure I could turn off the startup scripts if...

    2013 Model S P85 vehicle shut down while driving

    This is a great point! Had not thought of that. So my 100% charged cells will not reach 4.2V? I will test that. I think 90% will be enough for most of my needs. Parts ordered: ASY-HV BATTERY,90KWH,SX Part #: 1014116-00-B

    2013 Model S P85 vehicle shut down while driving

    They apologized for the miscommunication. He then clarified that I can pay $2900CAD to unlock the 5kWh at any time in the future. So my battery is a software limited 90kWh pack. They limited it to 91.6%. I was shocked at first and thought they were going to put a 85kWh in after I denied the $$$...

    2013 Model S P85 vehicle shut down while driving

    2013 Model S P85 vehicle shut down while driving

    It's not over yet! They say it will be finished by March 22. I'm hoping my air suspension just needs a calibration, and my brake pedal booster boot needs to be cleaned. They called me asking for $2900CAD to match the difference from a 85 to 90... I told them I've been scouting Tesla forums for a...

    2013 Model S P85 vehicle shut down while driving

    They told me its a 90 B type pack. Interesting how 2 modules are missing. I had 72.5kWh software full pack energy with my previous battery. I'm also getting my rear saggy air suspension and squeaky brake pedal serviced. Really amazing how fast they got that battery pack in. Here's some...

    2013 Model S P85 vehicle shut down while driving

    I was driving about 50km/h with about 5-10% throttle, then my rear drive unit went KLUNK and my accelerator pedal stopped responding to my input. After my power stalled out I had to coast into a nearby driveway last second on a busy road. The car would not allow me to put it back into Drive...

    Yep and I learned a valuable lesson about insurance. I'm getting comprehensive coverage moving forward. Glad it wasn't anything bigger. I'm looking for a gas beater while I wait for repairs and trade in. Next SC appointment is Jan 11th and the radiator, nosecone will have to be replaced. Thanks...

    I couldn't find it.. it definitely got sucked under and I don't think he hit my wheels. Might be alive still, hopefully it's not suffering :(

    Ordered a 3, but I hit a coyote with my trade in vehicle. What do?

    This is a fair opinion and point. I did the math and my monthly payments would be the same, but stretched out 3 more years. Air suspension would cost $5k per axle to replace once the inevitable leak happens. That's my biggest concern about the S. Maybe I should try for a used AWD 3 in the 50k...

    Ordered a 3, but I hit a coyote with my trade in vehicle. What do?

    I hit a coyote today with my 2013 Model S. I have no comprehensive coverage with ICBC since COVID19. The car has no basic warranty and my motor/battery warranty ends this March. The damage is a cracked bumper, destroyed nosecone, coolant leak and possible radiator damage. I have dashcam footage...

    Steering wheel and floor vibration

    Got the wheel back and a 4 wheel balance done. It feels so much better! Stabilizer links definitely helped too. Still some feel in the steering wheel. Not as bad of vibrations as when I park and run the climate control. Will get alignment checked soon. One lower control arm bushing has slight...

    Should I buy a Tesla?

    Yes. Mine bricked in January. Cotran Consulting helped me out and sent a replacement Tegra board for $1000CAD . A lot cheaper than replacing or upgrading to MCU2 with Tesla service. My lcd panel still has bubbles but I don't mind. Not the biggest issue unless you enable PIN2DRIVE before the brick.

    Should I buy a Tesla?

    I think that the Model 3 is more reliable. Try the Raven S and Dual Motor 3 before you jump on an older S. If you do consider an older S be aware of the common and inevitable MCU brick issue. Another thing to consider is coil or air suspension on the P85D. I wouldn't worry too much about the...

    Steering wheel and floor vibration

    So it turns out that my front right rim was bent.. Didn't think to check since they were so new. Getting fixed on Monday by Panther Precision in Surrey, BC. Luckily I have a spare wheel. A few other wheels need a re-balance too. I am super relieved that it is not a suspension issue.

    Access to the heater assembly?

    Find the service manual online. You can find it for free or buy it/subscribe. Follow all the precautions and order the right parts. Make sure to seal it up good too afterwards. Maybe Rich Rebuilds has an old video of DCDC teardown? Or contact Electrified Garage.

    Liftgate latch metal clank when driving over bumps

    I've tried adjusting the bumpstops, electrical tape to dampen the metal on metal noise, plastic seemed to be the best remedy. Time to take latch out and re-position? Any ideas? It is such an annoying sound.
