    How to remove passenger seat?

    We were having the same issue until my wife suggested we use a long spade drill bit with a hex end on it. I think it was a 1/2 or 3/8 inch long drill bit. The hex end fit the bolt exactly and we used pliers or a vise grip to turn the bit. Worked like a charm.

    will paint chip on front sensor disable autosteer, cruise control, and auto emerg brake feature?

    We're on FSDb and for the past two or three weeks have had similar issues. While on FSD, we get a random red steering wheel "panic" and then the AEB/CC become disabled. They stay disabled even after a reboot. They re-enable after the car "rests" for a short period. We set up a SC visit and was...

    Open Vehicle Monitor System (OVMS) - Technical Discussion

    Wouldn't we use the command "cell setstate PoweredOff" instead of "Power cellular off" to turn the modem off? And use "cell setstate PoweredOn" to turn it on? The commands "PoweredOff" and "PoweredOn" are case sensitive, I believe.

    Cooling cycle non-stop?

    Check your HVAC coolant to make sure it doesn't have a leak. I had the same problem (twice) where the coolant pump would continuously run preventing the car from "sleeping". The SC checked it and found leaks (both times) at the TVX valves (there are four I think - two at the battery box and two...

    Ugh. Tesla Service takes another notch downhill.

    We have a little over 59k on our Roadie and we had her in last year for it's 10 year service. This is what they did and it took about a week: - Transmission (Gearbox) Fluid R/R - Vented Transmission Plug replace - Wiper Blade (as usual annually) - PEM & Motor Fans Clean - ESS Bleed Test...

    Open Vehicle Monitor System (OVMS) - Technical Discussion

    I got the 4G modem from Fastech after about three and a half weeks (two and one half weeks in customs). Before starting installation, note the IMEI on the 4G chip to update the cell provider. Here's the tools I used. Connect to your OVMS module via your browser or through the app and...

    Open Vehicle Monitor System (OVMS) - Technical Discussion

    I do not believe the SIM determines 3G or 4G (please correct me if I am incorrect). I believe it's the modem in the OVMS module. I would suggest contacting Carl Medlock (@CM_007) to see if he has any in stock. I have purchased one from Fastech in China and it's on the way to me (probably stuck...

    New Car Wash Mode Not Working

    Tried out CWM on my M3 yesterday. As per the updated manual, I added the required water, wash cloth, car "shampoo", grease from my elbows, and buckets. After about an hour, my car magically went from nasty to spotless!

    There are other differences between Gen 1 & 2 HPWCs. I have a Gen 1 for our ☰ and a Gen 2 for our Roadie. Both work flawlessly on 50A breakers.

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    Waypoints would probably do the same but, what I am inquiring about is somehow changing the car's preferred route to one I would rather follow. For an example, we have this one restaurant and when we enter it in as a destination (we are on 44.15) the navigation routes us through a very busy and...

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    One question I have for those with the FSD beta (and I did not go through all 21 pages of this thread so I apologize if it's been asked previously). If I set a destination but I want a different route than what the car choses, can the route be changed to my preferred one? Thanks for any response!

    Roadster 2.x TPMS Tool

    ok, my thoughts 1. Car can read temps from sensors. - yes 2. OVMS reads temps from sensors - yes 3. OVMS TPMS "read" command does NOT return sensor id's (ignition on) - yes Possible solution (?) - go to tire shop and have them use their TPMS scan tool to read the sensor id's and enter them...

    Roadster 2.x TPMS Tool

    It depends on how much you will use it and how much you want to spend. Fluke are real nice but if it's going to sit in the toolbox after being used once, . . . I picked up an inexpensive one at Harbor Freight or Walmart and it works just fine. It sounds a tone on continuity.

    Roadster 2.x TPMS Tool

    @Roadster Your soldering looks ok to me but I would do continuity checks from the db9 pin#1 to the da26 pin#21, 20, & 22 just to make sure that nothing got crossed. Also, what's the mfg date on your OVMS (before or after July 2018 - before requires the jumper)? Are the switches set - SW1 set to...

    Roadster 2.x TPMS Tool

    Turn the key to the "on" position (so the instrument panel lights are on) and then try your read command. If it comes back with the same result, . . . @markwj would need to assist. I get the same Error when I do a "tpms read" with the key in the "off" position. With it "on" the read command...

    Roadster 2.x TPMS Tool

    Before soldering I noticed the surface of the OVMS module was "shiny" due to the clear surface applied to it. I took a very small piece of 330 grit sandpaper and removed the clear coating on the connectors. I then referred to @Roadster's link to soldering to make sure there were no issues. I...

    Roadster 2.x TPMS Tool

    @markwj - We received the TPMS board last week and installed/configured it today. Our OVMS did require a jumper. Installation was fairly straight forward with your instructions. We verified it's operation with the "TPMS read" command. Everything works! Thanks again!!

    @nicky _cwt are there any other Roadster owners in Hong Kong that can assist you with replacing the connectors or the harness? The last time you had your car serviced for it's annual PEM cleaning, did the tech check the connectors for issues? If there was no evidence of burnt pins then you...

    @nicky _cwt, I continued to have issues with the fan side connectors so I just rebuilt the entire harness from the PEM to the fan connector. Luckily, I have skinny arms and was able to reach the PEM side connector without removing the PEM. I would suggest reading the thread (the entire thing)...

    Trip from SF to NY

    Last March (2019), we drove our 3 from Carson City, Nv. to Vero Beach, Fl and back (~6500 miles). We used evtripplanner, plugshare, and the car's navigation. We took our time, stayed at hotels with free charging or proximal to superchargers. We had no "range anxiety" and had no issues. My one...

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

    The tech did not mention any cost so my "assumption" would be there is a cost (especially on a ten or more year old car).
