Out of the 1642 days that I've owned my P85DL, I've done WOT acceleration an average of 6 times a day so I think that's several times the 2500 limit
So the "Battery Needs Service. Avoid Hard Acceleration" message I got 3 weeks ago turns out to be BMS Error 159 WOT Cycles Exceeded.
The fix is they want to upgrade me from V8 to V10. My power, range, and charging speed are all still good.
What did others who've had this error have done to correct it in the past? Battery replacement or not?
How did you find out the meaning of the "idiot light"?
Didn't Tesla just remove the error message in a future software update? (After a lot of uproar over the WOT limits.) And they said they would just deal with things that break as needed. So maybe they are correct, and that you just have to update the software to get the message to go away.
can you share the cost of this battery replacement?Some data points to share.
Tesla replaced my V1 1063792-00-A battery on 12/14/2016 , Max charge was 246 rated miles ( was 268 at time of purchase 9/2015 )
with a V3 battery 1088792-00-A Max charge 270 rated miles ( car had 24k miles at the time )
On 10/03/2018 Max charge 260 rated miles ( loss of 10 rated miles after ~ 2 years )
On 3/25/2019 Max charge 258 rated miles
On 12/5/2019 Max charge 258 rated miles ( car has 60k miles on it right now 12/16/2019 )
The V1 battery had a loss of 8.2% in one year and 24k miles.
The V3 battery has had a loss of 3.7% after 3 years and 36k miles.
I went through an entire year of service visits and emails with Tesla service. I was VERY upset that I paid $3k for the 90kw upgrade which for my car was an increase from 250 rated miles to 268 rated miles, and after a year it was gone. I finally gave up dealing directly with Tesla and went to California dispute settlement program. They accepted my claim and shortly thereafter Tesla agreed to replace my V1 battery with a V3. So the silver lining for me was that since it took a year, the V3 battery was available. Which should be the battery every 90 model S has installed. Most especially for anyone with ludicrous mode. It is the only 90kw battery that hit the sub 11 second quarter mile time.Can you share your battery issue? What did you experience and how did service determine this can be fixed under the warranty? Thanks in advance.
I noticed this thread hasnt been commented upon in a few months. I had to get my P90DL battery replaced 1 week after I purchased it. It had a range of 190 at that time. They replaced it with the 1069582-01-E REMAN battery. My range has been 240 since then without much variation at all after 6 months. After reading this thread I see this battery is not preferred at all. I bought used from Tesla with the advertised range of 270 miles, as everyone here knows. I know 240 range is a 12% degrade over new and is within "limits." I was more upset to see the limit in power available in this pack being 430kw . With this being said, has anyone here experienced the issue getting fixed via updates? Should I pursue Tesla in trying to get a V3 battery? Apologies if this was addressed, I read through many pages and didnt notice anyone experiencing updated power with this pack.
I dont. I bought it and went from San Diego to Sodona, AZ. It was a terrible experience as A/C went out, 100 degrees outside, 180 miles "rated range," and max 60 kw supercharging. I will say it felt snappier but zero proof.Do you know what version battery you had before it was replaced? And how much power you got out of it? You could argue that you should have that level of performance. I had I think about 480 kW peak from the v2 battery on my car, back in 2018.
