    Roadster 2.x TPMS Tool

    My original batteries started dying around 7 years, and all 4 failed by year 8. I don't think that you can dig deeper and replace the original battery as I think that it is on the other side of the printed circuit board. I think that to try to remove the original battery would be irreversibly...

    Roadster 2.x TPMS Tool

    I don't want to hijack this thread (and want to start with kudos to @markwj for this awesome work), but I thought it worthwhile to relay to those interested (who have reasonable solder skills, or know someone who does) and may not know that it is possible to "revive" Roadster 2.x TPMS sensors...

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

    Sorry, just saw this [forgot to tick e-mail notifications]. I pulled the 5V supply from the second USB port on my laptop (I didn't want to cut into my standalone USB-RS232 dongle as I have other uses for it). I have many-many-many original, but now almost useless, original iPhone-USB cables...

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

    #0879 had the SERVICE REMINDER trip on 14-August-20, and then VDS thought it became 01-Jan-01. Thanks to all who posted the many helpful comments on this thread. I was able to make my own update cable and execute the update from all the info provided herein [I already had a USB-Serial dongle...

    OVMS - 2G being turned off in US by AT & T

    Just moved from globalsimcard to hologram.io, and, and unfortunately, no improvement in 2G coverage here in Ventura, CA. Very much looking forward to OVMS v3. [Joined the OVMSdev v3 listserv, but couldn't tell if they're looking for beta testers.]

    Roadster Sport: Can anyone describe the procedure for reprogramming a key fob?

    Thanks, Bonnie. I will check with the Service Center. Do you know if the "Security Code" is noted anywhere on the vehicle? Is it different than the "Valet PIN"? I'm still curious if anyone on the Forum has any knowledge of the reprogramming procedure. Thanks, again. Chip

    Roadster Sport: Can anyone describe the procedure for reprogramming a key fob?

    Can anyone describe the procedure for reprogramming a "forgotten" key fob so it can be recognized by the alarm system in the Roadster Sport? I would like to avoid a service visit just to reprogram a "Maytag-ed" key fob. Thank you. cangman

    Security PIN: Method to recover, or return to default 1234?

    SUCCESS: Just to close this out, and maybe provide some useful information to others who may face this issue in the future----- I uploaded the log file as instructed in the Roadster Owner's Manual, and within hours received an e-mail from a local Tesla Service Center (very impressive response...

    Security PIN: Method to recover, or return to default 1234?

    Thanks, Jackyche. That's very helpful. I'll download a log, and send it in with a request for the PIN.....at least there's hope. Thanks, again. cangman

    Security PIN: Method to recover, or return to default 1234?

    Thanks, shrink. Interestingly, when I discussed this matter with my local Tesla Service Center, their response was, and I quote, "we're not quite sure how to do it, but I'm sure if we plug it in and play around with it for a while (@ $200/hr), we'll be able to figure it out". Doesn't exactly...

    Security PIN: Method to recover, or return to default 1234?

    Thanks, Doug_G. Didn't want to bring into the Service Center just for this item, and didn't want to wait until Annual Service (which is six months away), but if I can't find an answer here, I'll just have to wait for the Annual Service. Thanks, again. cangman

    Security PIN: Method to recover, or return to default 1234?

    I recently purchased a used Roadster Sport and the original owner set a Security PIN that was not the "1234" default. Unfortunately, that Security PIN was not provided with the materials that came with the car. Does anyone know of a method to recover that Security PIN, or reset the Security...
