    I just noticed today, after my RS was repaired last week by Tesla (Airco condensor was replaced) that power was kept limited to 100kW - without warning/notice on the dashboard for the full 10 km trip. No special conditions, not heated up or such, battery ~50% charged.
    I'm used to moderate power limiting when it is really cold. But now it is 15C, normally it would go to the full 200kW.
    I checked the small panel, and the vital stats showed 1 abnormal measure: Ttrans -40C.
    Does that suggest an error measure, or is it historic : first version TR had two speed transmission, but not anymore.

    Any other suggestions why power can be limited to 100kW?

    The Ttrans sensor isn't connected to anything so it's not relevant, Maybe look in the diagnostic menu and see what temperatures you see, Maybe put the car in performance and see if that helps

    I have always seen my Ttrans temperature at -40C in all of my Roadsters, so I believe that's normal, though I could be wrong.
