    Hi.
    I'm sending an e-mail to ask you some questions about TESLA S 70D.
    I will be really appreciate it if you repond my questions below.
    1. If the battery runs out of power from the long repair period what happens to the car ?
    2. What kind of warning light comes on before and after the accident or the repairs?
    3. What is the solution to the warning light?
    4. Is there a scanner which scans the TESLA that I own? (I have a borsh, for your information.)
    5. A condenser of the air conditioner has gotten damaged. What kind of gas do I have to put? I'm considering 134. Is it okay to put it?

    6. And I found the air conditioner covered with the plastic cover. If I order the condenser, is the plastic cover included in the product? Or do I have to order it separately?

    7. I'm a car mechanic. How can I buy a part that I need without receiving the service from the shop?
    I'd like to know the fastest way to get a part for repairs.
    I'm looking forward to your prompt reply. Thank you.

    Batteries sitting dead isn't a good idea and can cause permanent damage. Why not just keep charging while repairing?

    Sounds like you got a salvage and Tesla won't do much for you. If you did, you might want to try and get parts used or get a non salvaged owner to buy the parts from Tesla.

    If yours isn't salvaged, I would take it to Tesla and have them do the work.

    I know that's not what you want to hear as an auto mechanic. I've turned a wrench for many years but still take mine in for service as it's nothing like an ICE car.

    Good luck

    see above


    In an accident, main battery pack should disconnect.

    I don't know how to re-enable the main battery pack again.

    I guess you can try calling Tesla to remotely re-enable it.

    Fix whatever it complains.

    Tesla should have a tool, I have no idea.

    Tesla mechanic can also bring up a diagnostic screen from the 17" display. I assume it can also be done remotely too.

    I have no idea but I agree with you that since Freon is banned, 134 is logical.

    I have no idea.

    Call Tesla up!
