    Wiring EVSE on 230V Three-Phase Without Neutral

    Hi Vincentlevet, Unfortunately I can not share the image from my tesla charger app, because I am not using a Tesla wallbox. Currently I have a wallbox that I made myself, but basically with the above schematic. Sorry. The Tesla car app on my phone shows what the display in the car does (as...

    Wiring EVSE on 230V Three-Phase Without Neutral

    I did not need any special equipment. When connecting the charger to the power supply I did like in the drawing in my original post: - supply L1 - charger L1, - supply L2 - charger L2, - nothing - charger L3, - supply L3 - charger N, - supply PE - supply PE.

    How do clear "replace 12v battery" warning?

    Today I replaced my 12V battery on my 2015 Model S and the "replace 12V soon" warning did not go away. Tried the two wheel reset and all the usual tricks. I suspect this was because the new battery was at 12.01V when I installed it. I decided not to charge it beforehand thinking that the car...

    Drive Unit Version

    Got the version Q yesterday in Brussels, Belgium. This is most probably the latest version that RWD cars get (1025276-00-Q). Hoping this will last the million miles.

    POLL: Have you had to have your 12V battery replaced?

    Can you update on your experience with the BattMobile Batteries after a while and after the one you get goes dead. It would be good for all of us to know. By the way, it seems absolutely unacceptable that the battery for a car needs to be replaced that often. My previous car was a 15 year old...

    SMA Sunny Home Manager + Mennekes Amtron

    I am in the process of installing solar panels on my roof. And would like to create a system, where the car is charged on excess electricity and it is exported to the grid only if the car battery is charged. The solution that I have found is to add Sunny Home Manager to the SMA system, and use...

    AirBnB destination charger programme in Europe?

    Yes, it exists in Europe. You can see the the chargers on the map here. Unfortunately, I don't know how to join. Charging when staying somewhere is always a big plus for me. Good luck!

    Wiring EVSE on 230V Three-Phase Without Neutral

    UPDATE: I have wired the charger as described. The result on a single-charger (16A) Model S 85 is as expected. I can charge with speed 32-33 km/h. It shows 27/28 A.

    Germany - Poland - Lithuania - Latvia - Estonia

    I have gone from Belgium to Latvia and back 2 times already. But I never did it by road through Poland. I always went through Sweden and then took a ferry. The best ferry route to take in my experience is Karlshamn-Klaipeda, because it is the shortest. I had some good people from Sweden and...

    Wiring EVSE on 230V Three-Phase Without Neutral

    Wiring EVSE on 230V Three-Phase Without Neutral

    I have just moved in a new house in Belgium, where I have a 3-phase electricity without neutral (L1, L2, L3, PE). In my previous house I had only 1-phase (L1, L2, PE) electricity. In both cases the voltage between any two phases is 230V, but between a phase and ground is less. I know that there...

    Yes, now there are at least 3 people who reported having the update on ev-fw.com.

    Software update question

    According to http://ev-fw.com/, nobody has received 8.0 yet. It is very likely that you are just getting 7.1 (2.36.31) security update.

    Electrician Recommendation in Brussels, Belgium

    Maybe a stupid question, but can you connect it to 3 phase connection without neutral? Or it will handle only 1 phase connection (230V between 2 phases)?

    Electrician Recommendation in Brussels, Belgium

    I have just moved to a new house and need a good electrician in Brussels who could help with installing a charging station in a "neuterprobleem" environment (40A 3 phase connection of the house with 230V between each 2 phases). I have a 1 phase 32A EVSE from the old house, which worked with the...

    European SuperCharger rollout updated

    You can do your statistics if you check supercharge.info, but building itself seems to be quick - a week or two, or can take a lot longer. I would not put a lot of hope on the "promised" timing. They will build them when it is strategically best... probably once you can drive through Spain to...

    Tire rotation - $200?

    Why don't you just do it yourself? Any particular reason? It is very easy to do and I truly enjoy it. Saves me some 50 eur every time as well, although that is not why I do it myself. Just don't forget to switch on "Jack mode" if you have air suspension.

    Dumb question about car jacks

    I ordered this BGS jack on Amazon (BGS Hydraulischer Wagenheber, 2,5 Tonnen, Aluminium-Stahl-Konstruktion, 1 Stück, 2889: Amazon.de: Baumarkt). The quality is amazing. The jack is very heavy (28 kg), therefore it is very stable. If you get something similar, you will not be disappointed. I am...

    Suspension Problem on Model S

    I am looking at that picture of the ball joint and cannot believe that one cannot hear that and notice before failure occurs. I have had ball joints in much better condition replaced on my previous cars. I think that the OP was completely neglecting any suspension sounds and that is something...

    Dual chargers

    I am in Belgium and am also considering installing a second charger. I very often see 3 phase 32A charging stations available where I am driving. It seems useful if I were to charge more outside home and on Superchargers. Additional benefit would be that you would also get 32A on single phase...

    Paper card falls inside the drivers door. What should I do?

    That for sure will not work in Belgium. Any court case in Belgium will take years and is very expensive for both sides. After all, the court building in Brussels (Palais de Justice, Brussels - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) is the largest one in the world. :smile:

    Paper card falls inside the drivers door. What should I do?

    I called Tesla about this. The employee said that this is "one of the strangest problems" he has been asked about. :smile: The local service center sent me a quote of 110 eur for the work. Does not seem that much for the hassle, but I am not sure it is worth doing it at all and could just go...

    Paper card falls inside the drivers door. What should I do?

    I am good at having interesting situations... Yesterday as I came back to my car someone had stuck an advertising card on my door like this. I took a photo with another one of these laminated paper advertisement cards. I did not notice it, because the parking spot was narrow (as they always...

    RÖMER Kidfix in Model S

    A forum member asked about the fit of the Bébé Confort Rodifix, and since it might be relevant for others, I post some photos here. I hope it helps others to choose. This is how Bébé Confort Rodifix looks in the back seat of the car with standard leather seats. I keep a cut sleeping mat below...

    A 10 minute Survey of Tesla Model S Owners

    Dear Greeta, The question "How often do you charge?" is really strange. There is no way to answer it, because any Tesla will be plugged in any time that it is in garage and not driving. And it usually charges after it is plugged in until finishes, or when the state of charge falls to a level...

    Amazing driving skills of a Tesla driver in Brussels

    Yesterday I was walking not far from my home in Brussels, on Rue Froissart. I saw a blue Model S owner getting out of her parking with an amazing skill: she went up the ramp out of the parking garage of her building backwards! On top of that, it was so tight that she had to fold her mirrors on...

    Speed limit indicator on Belgian highways

    I have not gone on those R0 stretches, but in the Brussels tunnels I have had times when it shows 30 km/h instead of 70. It is true that this is mostly due to construction works. And in Wallonia it seems to be worst. But I have the impression that it nicely picks up the motorway start signs...

    RWD performance Improvement from v7.0 - how much?

    Fremont SC only drawing 10A on my car.

    We had a similar situation at the SC north of Stockholm (Sweden). I plugged in at the service center supercharger and came back in an hour (after breakfast). The car was drawing 10A. The person working for Tesla said they "have a problem today". Could it be that they had a similar problem but...

    European single charger upgrade in the works?

    European single charger upgrade in the works?

    In that case I admit not to know how to charge my car! :redface: I have a Dutch Ratio 30A one phase chargar with type 2 plug.

    Does Your Tesla Make You A More Aggressive Driver?

    For me the knowing that I can be quicker than anyone on the road is enough. That alone makes me smile. I sometimes use the acceleration I have, but far less than ever before. Also, there is no noise of the engine, which makes me more aggressive.
