Should have a low voltage alarm -
Reminds me of this thread, seems like they have some defective inverters they are recalling:
Part recall for Model 3
Eclectic - are you the same troll in Twitter with handle "Tesla is WHOMPY" ?
How do you know? It is these kind of subtle characterizations which will attract trolls like fleas to sugar.
Interesting -- the same post, verbatim. "Tesla is Whompy" is keef.
Someone is infringing upon my copyright. Oh, wait, I disclaim copyright rights in anything I post here...
But no, that's not me. Someone with good enough taste to steal my words, though.
I don't use Twitter but if someone cares enough to respond to that account, after I wrote my original post I found out that two of my neighbors have Model 3s and I asked them about their experiences. Neither had any catastrophic failures, just pretty minor interface/phone stuff. So Mr. Whompy should also include the post I'm writing right now in his or her next copy/paste.
Do I get an award for seeing two Model 3s within 10 minutes this morning while not being within 10 miles of Fremont or Palo Alto?
Copycat trolls are fun.
Good pickup, rest my case.
from the timestamps it would seem the TMC post (3:37pm) came after the Twitter post (1:54 pm) but it is hard to say which came first because of the timezones.
Just received an update from Tesla Service:
The drive unit DID in fact fail which they say caused the DC converter to malfunction. The new drive unit arrived today and they will be replacing that and then testing the DC converter to see if it charges the 12V battery.
Again as always, very polite wonderful service. I am enjoying the Model S loaner so the wait is not too painful (although I do prefer the 3!)
You were lucky you were located near a service center. Think about poor Starman when his battery prematurally died.
"Starman and his electric-car-turned-spacecraft were equipped with cameras that live-streamed the car’s journey as it floated through space. Unfortunately, the Roadster’s transmission didn’t last quite as long as expected. The batteries were expected to broadcast for at least 12 hours, but they ended up dying after only 4 hours of transmission. Sadly, that left space enthusiasts in the dark, wondering how Starman was doing as he piloted his convertible through the cosmos."
I think there's a ranger on Mars who can meet him when he crosses Mars orbit.
I believe that the only Rangers out in space went towards the moon, not Mars .
What's your VIN? I picked mine up in Tampa on Feb 12th with VIN 60xx. At 302 miles driven, the car became inoperable after a software update and shortly lost 12V power afterwards. I pick up my car tomorrow from the service center and they said it was due to a fault in the rear drive unit. I'm curious if we were part of the same batch of cars. Tesla Model 3 Down: Won't Power Up, and is Inaccessible
Vin is 50xx. I was told that shortly after my drive unit failed, a service bulletin went out to replace the drive units on a whole range of Vins. I tried to get more details but unsurprisingly they would not give me any more info.
Woke up to this, in the morning. Tesla towed to a service center.
So they are replacing the rear drive unit. ETA 3 days. They gave me an Infiniti qx70 loaner
There was a thread here about a possible firmware bug causing a failure. Something about shifting between drive/reverse while the car was still moving. Seams to me I recall the symptoms were similar?
Hi, I had a similar experience. The first time, model 3 was about a month old and tesla replaced the 12v and said I should be fine. When I got the same error msg 2 weeks later, I called roadside assistance who said I just needed to drive the car more (I drive it everyday) and 12v would recharge itself. I decided to drive it to the service center. After I got there it died and they couldn't get it started. They need to replace the rear drive shaft. Curious how your issue was remedied and if you've experienced any other issues? I too am excited to get my car back, but also anxious, hoping that 4 visits to the service center in 2 months is all I'll have to make for the year.
Rear drive shaft or drive unit?
I had exactly the same issues a few days ago. Model 3 2019, about 1000 miles. The messages I got:
The car cannot charge
Unable to drive
Pull over safely
The car is shutting down
Car is now in service. Waiting for a resolution. Got a loaner.
