    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    Homelink works as well now, but that may have been a separate issue - the eMMC replacement caused loss of Homelink in the first place, but failure to add my garage door to the Model S again may havre been an issue to do with training the receiver, now sorted out.

    Tried the soft scroll wheel reset (again) and now the iphone pairs correctly, AND I'v e got my Homelink working again! Many thanks, TonyT's advice regarding resets was the solution .

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    PPS - Just tried another scroll wheel reset - not the first since this problem arrose - and.... lo and behold, my iphone now connects! Haven't tried the Homelink yet, but this is looking more promising. Many thanks for your good advice, TonyT

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    PS - By 'factory reset' are we talking about a soft reset - by pressing both scroll wheels on my 2015 Model S - or a hard reset, which seems to involve disconnecting the 12Volt battey as described by this rather useful blog on the subject...

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    Homelink to my Seip universal receiver and bluetooth to phone have worked perfectly for 7 years on my 2015 Model S. I recently had tyres replaced and Tesla offered a free VCM replacement to upgrade eMMC - well it was free so why not? - BIG MISTAKE! Homelink wouldn't work when I arrived home...

    Beware SMETS2 meters

    After 18 months, Telsa and Landis+Gyr, the meter manufacturers, have agreed a solution (single phase but the meters are dual single/ 3phase). My electricity supplier, EDF, have replaced my L&G E470 Type 5424 meter with the olderType 5394 version. Result Kama! I have to say that once an EDF man...

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    I just had this upgrade to my 2015 MS. My advice is 'BE CAREFUL'! If it ain't broke, don't fix it' is good advice. I just had this upgrade to my 2015 MS. Free so seemed a good idea at the time.

    Locked out of Model S

    I’ve been locked out of my 2015 Model S five times now. First time 18 months ago, fortunately in the club carpark. No mobile connection either. Cleared after 2 hours. Same in July, same place. Tesla Support couldn’t access the car either. Now it’s occurred 3 more times, twice at the same place...

    nav map not updating?

    Found the traffic light symbol in the manual. Have set message to SWMBO, awaiting developments. Thanks for your suggestions.

    nav map not updating?

    Good point, sduck, just checked and you're right, she's got the satellite view back. But apparently the traffic is not showing either. I'll have to check the manual to see if that can be turned on and off.

    nav map not updating?

    I'm away but wifey says that for the last few days the nav screen has lost satellite mapping and only the basic mapping is there. An update loaded, possibly ly via the wifi connection in the garage. Looks like 3G not connecting but can't check it out myself until I get home. She tried a hard...

    Home Charge Rate Halved

    Well the problem persists. And Tesla (service centre) have now admitted that there is a firmware problem. Unfortunately, it seems that sorting out firmware problems that affect 2015 MS's is a low priority. I can force it to change at 32amps but unplugging and re-plugging. That seems to work if...

    Model S adapter for new V3 superchargers (U.K.)

    Thanks for that advice, DJP31. Planing to drive to Bath on Sunday and puzzling why my 2015 MS map doesn't show Amesbury as accessible. I guess I can't just drop into Gatwick, 20 mins away, tomorrow and get the upgrade on spec, but might give it a try. Slightly off topic but I need to book a...

    Can't login to Tesla app with ios9

    Damn! Thanks Zanary, I feared I was going to have to spend money. Oh well, I suppose people who can afford a Model S should be able to afford to 'keep up with the Jones's'! I am in the normally happy situation that my wife doesn't like spending our hard earned cash....

    Can't login to Tesla app with ios9

    Hi guys Since Tesla increased security a few weeks ago, my iphone 11 and 2019 ipad mini connect OK, but my wife's iphone 5 and old ipad running ios9 (can't update higher) can't login. It won't accept the username and login that works on my iphone 11. Should we be able to login or have I got to...

    Thanks Sonix. I found that my ipad was connecting OK. I tried logging out and then could not log back in, again no connection.Then I realised that my iphone had not updated to 14.3, so I updated it and now the app works fine! Yery strange.

    Home Charge Rate Halved

    That kind of makes sense. It does seem that the car is making a decision about what capacity it can charge at. I certainly adjusts the max ampage when using a 13amp socket and sometimes refuses to cjharge at all on old French wiring - I do have the correct opposite polaity chager adapter for...

    That's not impossible. I have a friend nearby with 4 Tesla Powerwalls and he has been having prob lems with grid voltage stability.

    Home Charge Rate Halved

    The reduced charging rate seems to have almost cured itself now! Most, but not quite all scheduled charges are now charging at the full 32amps - Really weird. Glad I didn't unnecessarily spend £2.5K on the new charger Tesla Service indicated was required! Going in to Brooklands tomorrow for a...

    Mobile Service - WHERE????

    Many thanks Tony - that's just the answer I was looking for. As NorfolkMustard demonstrated, it's possible to enter Truggers Handcross, a few miles north of me, but not my home address. I did ask for mobile service at my home, several times, including my postcode, but Tesla Service is asleep...

    Mobile Service - WHERE????

    @NorfolkMustard - it seems that there is a bug in ios 13 that results in incoming messages failing to trigger alerts, even if they are set. This is documented on the web. It's resulting in people missing critical messages and looks a little complicated to cure. I'm getting notifications from...

    Mobile Service - WHERE????

    Hopefully it will be easier for me once the Gatwick service centre re-opens late this year. At present the nearest is Brooklands. I would have been prepared to go there if I had realised that geting mobile service was so convoluted. I tried Truggers, Handcross and that comes up. Moto Pease...

    Mobile Service - WHERE????

    Thanks NorfolkMustard. I've tried putting my own address in and it doesn't accept it so I assumed it would only allow addresses in it's system. Since I've had two mobile service visits before at my home, which is near Burgess Hill, I couldn't understand how the system is supposed to work. Since...

    Mobile Service - WHERE????

    So I've had mobile service at my home before. 2015 MS owned since new, door handle failed last year. Booked on the app and I was contacted to tell me that they could do it via mobile service at my home. No problem..... once I got email communication. Comms via the app and texts is fragmented and...

    Beware SMETS2 meters

    Dilly, it depends what CT clamps we are talking about. My early suspicions were raised because I have one very basic CT clamp monitor, one supplied 8 years ago when British Gas was my energy supplier. That consistently reads 300-500 watts when the powerwall is supplying all the power. Huhh?? At...

    Beware SMETS2 meters

    I';ve just found out how to extract a vast amount of data from my SMETS2 Smart Meter - the method is rather obscure. - over 20 parameters including real, reactive and apparent power. It will take some time for me to digest what it's telling me!

    Beware SMETS2 meters

    Brilliant analogy Jeremy! Thanks for sharing it. Regarding what kVA is, I've been told by a knowledgeable power distribution friend that KVA can actually be either apparent or real; power, but KW is a special case where current and voltage are in phase. Since we are talking about an element of...

    Hi John I now have fairly concrete information form my EDF manager on the case that it looks like my Landis+Gyr smart meter has been incorrectly programmed. I'm expecting a call tomorrow/Friday to confirm what they are going to do about it. I've now been told that although the Smart Meter...

    I’m sorry I claimed Tesla support was helpful

    My onboard AC charger started randomly charging at 16amp instead of 32amp . Always 32amp if charge started immediately. Usually but not always 16amp on scheduled charge. Sounds like a software problem to me. I want to talk to an engineer. No chance. Schedule a service on the app. After a week...

    Beware SMETS2 meters

    Many thanks for the Correction, Wayne. I'm not an electrical engineer and I've had to do a lot of reading up to understand reactive power. My use of terminology is not quite what it should be - I'm learning all the time! My bills and contract refer to kWh, and since purely resistive power =...

    Beware SMETS2 meters

    Hi Jeremy You information has been extremely useful. My energy contract and bill do not refer to any kVAR charges but my smart meter appears to be recording kVAR and adding it to the kVA hours charged. I have put this point to my contact at EDF, my energy supplier and I have just had an...
