    Model S 2014 no power

    Hello. I have an electrical problem with my 2014 RWD Model S 85. My door handles aren't working as of two days ago, and the car doesn't respond to my key fobs. I was locked out of the car. I got in using the Tesla app to vent the windows, and then I was able to hook the door handle to open...

    Is this fixable?

    I have a 2014 MS P85 where the car would basically bug out and dies when driven in the rain. I think I might have found the culprit to the problem. I was wondering would I be able to fix it with electrical tape?

    VCFRONT_a180 Electrical system power reduced

    2022 Model 3 Long Range (less than 4,000 miles) got bricked last week after supercharging. It's currently at the service center, but they've been "diagnosing" for a week now and they can't figure out what's wrong. Here is my perspective leading up to the error, bricking, and eventual tow to...

    Plan for Connecting Wall Charger 100+ Feet Away and Future Proofing Setup?

    Hi, I'm trying to figure out the best plan for running power to my wall connector. I live in SoCal. My electrician is coming next week, but I want to have a jump-start and possibly start buying materials ahead of time. My box is a 100 amp panel and only has one more space for a 50 amp double...

    240v Extension Cord Question

    I bought a heavy 15-foot extension cord to connect my Model 3 (via a Gen 2 mobile connector with a NEMA 10-30R adapter) to my in-laws' old NEMA 10-30R basement dryer plug. It works fine to recharge my car. Here's my question: If I get an adapter like this one (http://www.shorturl.at/ruT39), am I...

    Home electrical issue

    About 8 months ago I acquired a 2008 roadster (I’m the second owner) and have been using the 110v plug. I’m finally getting around to having an electrician estimate hooking up the roadster High Power Wall Connector that requires 90amps. The electrician is concerned about running that amount of...

    I'm trying to tap in to the purple wire coming from the rear hatch trunk release. This is the switch just above the license plate. I'm hoping to find the wire somewhere in the trunk, but no luck so far. Does anyone know if it's there and how to locate it? I'd prefer to tap into it in the trunk...

    My electrician just arrived at my house to install the NEMA 14-50 outlet in the garage. I took a peek at the outlet he brought and wanted to make sure this is a good/right/legit one. Can anyone here confirm please? It's a Leviton NEMA 14-50R, and looks just like this...
