    Can't start heating from the app while charging at a CHAdeMO when at low range!

    My dear Californian car is silver must be blond in the inside because there are a few things she doesn't understand very well, especially about Winter. It's my 6th Winter with the car, so I'm used to it, but there are some new strange behaviors (at least to me) that must result from recent...

    Sponsoring a plug in St. Barbe, NL?

    Hi all, We're back from a fantastic "circum-Gulf of Saint Lawrence" trip in our 235 000 km MS! We saw nearly a hundred whales total (a humpback whale even saw us form 20 feet at the Blanc-Sablon wharf), 7-8 icebergs, hundreds of puffins, 5-6 bald eagles, seals, what else? Plus fantastic...

    Used MS 19" mag or compatible for spare tire

    We'll be traveling East to remote locations this Summer (Côte Nord to Natashquan, then Blanc Sablon, Anse-aux-Meadows, Gros Morne, Fogo, St-Pierre-et-Miquelon, St-John, and back through NS) and I thought I should not push my luck too much and I should bring a spare tire & wheel with me. (Last...

    Small dent: front bumper wrap in Montreal?

    Hi, Bad luck today: an old lady driving a Yaris backed up in our car while we were supercharging in Magog! There is a dent in the bumper (picture) which already got a couple of other scratches anyway. The car is not like "brand new". I hear many of you saying: "just fix it through the...

    HPWC & temperature-dependent peak electricity rates

    A similar question has probably been asked before but I was not able to find: Do you know if there is any way to tell the HPWC to stop charging, based on an electric signal (e.g. 0-5V or 0-12V)? Here is the long explanation of why I need that: Here in Quebec, we are in the special situation...

    Reversing light bulb replaceable? What type?

    Is it possible to replace the bulb of the reversing lights, an if yes, what type of bulb I should buy? My 2013 MS85 with Tech Pkg has the left reversing light burnt (or at least not operational) with some moisture inside the housing. (I'm in Canada so I expect to have two reversing lights...

    Current fluctuation with new UMC

    Weird behavior of a new UMC that the Tesla service center gave me about a month ago in exchange for a perfectly working one. As you can see in the video, 35 seconds after starting to charge, the current reaches the nominal value (32 A), but then, 1 min into the video, the current starts to...

    Wiper mechanism broken: how do you remove wiper arms?

    The wiper on passenger-side stopped working while under heavy rain this weekend. We drove back home (150 km) hoping the drive-side one doesn't break. Surely, this had to be one of the arms in the wiper mechanism since the other wiper was still working. As I'm out of warranty for long now and...

    The end of the road

    ...or more accurately, the end of the paved road in that direction. My challenge for this summer was to go visit relatives who live in a remote location in the North of Quebec, that is, the Mistissini Cree Reserve on the shores of the Lake Mistassini (the largest natural lake in Quebec, 100...

    New owner on tight trips

    For three weeks now, my wife and I are the very happy owner of a used Tesla Model S 85 of 2013 with just over 100 000 km (or 60 000 miles) on the odo. It has a rated range of 406 km (252 miles) at full charge. So far, we are very impressed with the car performances and all its features...
