Got following error. Any idea what is wrong...?

I had same error…I made a mobile service appointment, but they changed it to a service center appointment and said the mobile guy was not equipped to fix it. SC Fixed it under warranty.

A quote from my service record: “Checked connector at belt tensioner per article and could not find issue. Checked connector at VC left per article and could not find issue. Found internally damaged wire in harness. Replaced seat harness. System now working properly.”
 
I'm seeing a slightly different error code. RCM2_a146 on my car.
Its been frustrating trying to reach Tesla service to understand if my car is actually drivable in the current condition or not.

Got an appointment with the mobile technician originally for Thursday, July 8 but that got rescheduled to a service center appointment on July 19.

Does anyone know if the car is driveable?
I looked around to see if any of the wires were amiss but I didn't see anything.
 
Was finally able to get the car in to the service center last week, after a bunch of haggling with the service team.
They took 3 days to diagnose the issue as a faulty safety restraint module.
Apparently it needs to be ordered and then fitted, which will take another 3-4 days.

This car doesn't seem to be off to a good start. More than a week in the shop in the first 3 weeks of ownership.

Did you get a loaner? I put in request and scheduled a appointment with mobile tech. Then my mobile tech messaged saying I should take it to a SC myself and then rescheduled me to next week mobile.... Can't message him anymore so guess I'll wait for next week... Really don't wanna deal with the hassle of driving to a SC and getting uber credit...

Sorry to hear about your troubles.

Yes, I did get a loaner. I had to go to the SC 3 times to finally get one. It does help that the SC is only about 15 mins away and along my commute route.
The loaner is a really old beat up model S with crappy range but whatever, I still can drive and am not car-less.

Good luck with your issue. Hopefully it gets resolved soon!
