    I have a Tesla Model S P85 and a message on the screen appeared saying “acceleration reduced”. I took it to 4 garages that fix Tesla cars and they all said that the battery contactors needs replacement so they replaced the battery contactors with new ones but the error message is still appearing and the car is not fixed. They told me that they need to reset the code (bms 161 sw contactor stress) but they don’t know how to do it. Can anyone help me with this?

    No official Tesla service in Jordan? Might need a tech to do the reset plugged into the car.

    Can anyone recommend a shop that will install contractors for an unsupported car? I live in Texas, and Dallas or Austin are within reach.
