    Service Required after 12v battery replacement

    Can’t help debugging the problem but I believe if you swap out the DC-DC converter for a used one (not bought and installed by Tesla) you will have to reload the firmware, and I don’t know how you will get Tesla to do that for you. So before you buy a used DC-DC converter look into this issue.

    SolarEdge Generation Monitoring - hardwired (ethernet) network connection

    Yes, this is only an issue for those without powerwalls. If one has powerwalls, its a no brainer to have the powerwall TEG report to Tesla and connect an Ethernet cable to the SolarEdge inverter to have the inverter report to SolarEdge, providing the best of both worlds. I’m still in the permit...

    SolarEdge Generation Monitoring - hardwired (ethernet) network connection

    Someone had posted that they installed a Solaredge Home Gateway Zigbee SE1000-ZBGW-K5-NA in place of the little Zigbee box Tesla provides, and he was then able to use both the Tesla app and the SolarEdge app. He did not mention whether he still had energy consumption data on the Tesla app. I...

    Considering solar panels, looking for sizing/financing advice

    I’m supposed to get the SE11400 inverter also. According to Tesla, they expect the County permit to issue around October 9, with an install sometime thereafter. I am under the impression that the current inverters no longer have the display. As for when your inverter was manufactured, it has a...

    Considering solar panels, looking for sizing/financing advice

    What device is displaying that information? My understanding is that the current SolarEdge inverters no longer have a screen to display data.

    Considering solar panels, looking for sizing/financing advice

    I contacted my project adviser this morning and he assured me that a powerblaster will be installed in the electrical panel box (even though it is not shown in the design drawings) to enable energy consumption monitoring. He indicated it is one of the last items installed and that every solar...

    Considering solar panels, looking for sizing/financing advice

    That is what I was trying to find it; whether the consumption data would show in the Tesla app so that a third party app is not needed to get this data. I guess I’ll have to call the Tesla Project Advisor on Monday and ask about Tesla providing the powerblaster in my install.

    Considering solar panels, looking for sizing/financing advice

    I’m curious to know whether anyone that had a solar install in which the Energy Aware Technology (now called Neurio) powerblaster PB1 was not installed by Tesla went and installed a Neurio W1 themselves (as the PB1 does not appear to be available to purchase) and whether they were then able to...

    Stay away from SolarEdge inverter

    You don’t have to agree with me. It’s nothing off my back. I just request that you call SolarEdge’s toll free number and select the option to speak to tech support and then report here what they tell you. I’m can only report what the tech support person I spoke to told me, including his telling...

    Stay away from SolarEdge inverter

    I think the reason people are experiencing issues with the SolarEdge inverter is due to improper inverter selection by the Tesla design people. I’m having an 11.56Kw system designed. Tesla originally spec’ed the SE7600 inverter. When I questioned them about this selection they informed me that...

    Considering solar panels, looking for sizing/financing advice

    Tesla had no issue with customizing the design to stay under the Tier 1 system for Florida; hence an 11,560 watt design instead of Tesla’s standard 12,xxx watt system. The problem is they verbally tell you one thing but the purchase agreement says something else (or nothing at all). Doing...

    Considering solar panels, looking for sizing/financing advice

    We eventually agreed to use the Hanwha panel with SolarEdge P400 power optimizers and a SolarEdge SE11400 inverter. But they will not list these items in the purchase agreement. I did suggest making the design plans a part of the agreement if they do not wish to revise the agreement, but they...

    Considering solar panels, looking for sizing/financing advice

    First swing is no good. They already prepared such drawings bec HOA needs to approve the install. Drawings indicate design is typical and subject to change. Regarding the second swing, do you really want to get into a confrontation about the equipment on the day of installation? Lastly, what...

    Considering solar panels, looking for sizing/financing advice

    I would like to get peoples opinions on an issue I have with a Tesla solar proposal. For background, I currently own my second model S and a model 3. I am also a Tesla shareholder. My first model S was delivered with the features that I ordered. My second model S was not. After several...

    Retrofitted automatic charge port for older Model s

    (1). What is the approximate cost? (2). Is it using a brand new charge port purchased from Tesla or is it a charge port pulled from a parted out vehicle? (3). Also, is a vehicle firmware update required for the car to recognize it, or is it plug ‘n play? Thanks

    SolarEdge Monitoring w/Tesla Solar Panels (Using GWY10 Zigbee Gateway)

    If someone could test this out it would be great. It’s going to be some time before my system is installed (still pending HOA approval) but I’ve been following this thread intently. Your proposal would be a great way to get Tesla monitoring and SolarEdge monitoring, even if not real-time. I am...

    SolarEdge Monitoring w/Tesla Solar Panels (Using GWY10 Zigbee Gateway)

    So you have both Tesla and SolarEdge monitoring at the same time? What did you do? Did you request Tesla to forward the data to SolarEdge? Did you set up an installer account with SolarEdge?

    SolarEdge Monitoring w/Tesla Solar Panels (Using GWY10 Zigbee Gateway)

    Hiw do you switch between the Neo GW and the SolarEdge GW? Is it easier to just plug in an Ethernet cable into the inverter and switch the inverter between the Zigbee interface (for Tesla monitoring) and Ethernet (for SolarEdge monitoring)? There should ge a way to do both at the same time...

    I've loved Tesla for 7 years. But after years of abuse, I'm out

    Under both warranty and ESA. The failure of the door to stay closed seems to occur on about a yearly basis. This is the manually closed door, not the automatically closing charge port door.

    I've loved Tesla for 7 years. But after years of abuse, I'm out

    I didn’t take it that way. I want Tesla to succeed, as I own two cars and a fair amount of stock. But it’s the change in the way Tesla operates that has me concerned for the future once they get competition from other car manufacturers.

    I've loved Tesla for 7 years. But after years of abuse, I'm out

    I’m not asking Tesla to accept responsibility for me fixing the door. I was just asking for what adhesive they recommend. Actually, I got two emails after my post. The first was from the department that sent the estimate, asking me to review and approve the estimate. I replied to the estimate...

    I've loved Tesla for 7 years. But after years of abuse, I'm out

    Here is an example of the frustrations with not being able to talk to a service problem. The magnet on my manually operated charge port door separated from the backside of the door. As it's impossible to speak to anyone at Tesla, I “made” an appointment via the app. I said I do NOT want to...

    Charge Port Door Magnet Detached

    This just happened to me. As it's impossible to speak to anyone at Tesla, I “made” an appointment via the app. I said I do NOT want to take the car to Tesla or have mobile service come to me during the current virus situation, and that I can reattach the “washer” (magnet) myself if they advise...

    I've loved Tesla for 7 years. But after years of abuse, I'm out

    A car is not like a cellphone, tv, computer, etc. A car is not thrown away after 5 years, 8 years or even 10 years. I read recently that the average age of vehicles on the road in the US is 14 years. Yes, many cars are junked at a younger age (usually due to an accident or fire), but there...

    I've loved Tesla for 7 years. But after years of abuse, I'm out

    I own a 2013 P85 and can confirm that Tesla’s service has gone downhill. When I got the extended plan in June 2013, the plan indicated that there was a $200 deductible for the first occurrence of a covered repair, and that subsequent repairs for the same thing would NOT incur the deductible a...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I’m glad everyone that has done the MCU2 upgrade is happy with it. But to me, it is not worth it in its present form. Losing the radio is a show stopper for me (and likely many other people). I have 2 Tesla cars; a classic model S and a model 3 with (not yet available FSD) ability. I have...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Did you pay for the second MCU? If you paid for the second MCU you shouldn’t have to pay for the third MCU. Replacement units under warranty only have the remaining new car warranty. But if you pay for the MCU you get a 4 year warranty.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I’m curious as to how old your MCU1 is (was) and how much stuff (navigation addresses, etc) were stored on it. I ask because I had been complaining to service that the seat memory would constantly forget its setting when the car sat for a day or would take seconds to adjust to its memory...

    Service nightmare!

    You answered the question yourself. Almost every failure of the MCU1 is due to the failure of the relatively inexpensive eMMC chip that Tesla uses.

    Tesla coercing software updates!?!

    I took my car in for its annual checkup (part of the 8 year maintenance plan). Tesla updated the firmware to 2020.4.1 due to a notice in their system about the need to update to maintain connectivity. So be aware that if you received the update notice requirement and take the car in for...

    Dash Cam Error - Says Drive is full but it's nearly empty?

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Really? The numerous states I deal with charge tax only on parts, and not on labor. In any event, it’s not that much of a money difference on a per unit basis. I just hope that if Tesla is charging tax on the $2500, they are paying the full collected tax to the respective states, and not...

    UMC Failure

    UMC (and HPWC if purchased at the same time the car is ordered (at least back years ago)) is covered for 4 years under the new car warranty. An HPWC and/or UMC purchased afterward only has a 1 year warranty.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    As someone that has a classic P85 that uses a MCU1 and a model 3 that uses a MCU2, I can say that I have never had a desire to have (use) camper mode, dog mode, basic Atari games, Spotify streaming, or improved voice controls in the Classic P85. In the model 3, the only feature used from your...

    MCU1 S Owners: Logic FOR/AGAINST Tesla's $2,500 "Infotainment Upgrade"? (Not required for FSD)

    MCU1 S Owners: Logic FOR/AGAINST Tesla's $2,500 "Infotainment Upgrade"? (Not required for FSD)

    The MCU in the model 3 does not include a tuner module in it. The tuner module is located in the back of the car. If I remember correctly it is made by Harmon Kardon. I don’t know if the MCU2 for the models S and X has a built-in or external FM tuner.
