    Any tips for restarting the internal computer? I had a log transfer interrupted, and now I get a "memory stick failure" every time I try to pull the logs. Any tips?

    Try opening and closing the charge port door rapidly for something like 5-8 times.

    If this doesn't work, message me and I'll give you a more elaborate method of resetting the entire thing... But hopefully this works!

    Assuming it's a 2.0 you can pull fuse #13 and the aux battery fuse (listed as a 30A?), or disconnect the aux battery. It's possible just waiting for the car to sleep is sufficient, but I doubt it. This is a guess from the wiring diagrams, sadly there are a number of other fuses that are associated with the VMS, but I believe they're all for switched actuators (trunk, locks, etc).

    Another possibility is to carefully unplug one of the connectors from the VMS module in the passenger foot well, see this for more.

    This is what Tesla does and what I do whenever the knickers get into a hissy with the USB stick:

    How and where to pull plug / power to the VDS?

    Just be VERY careful with the connector plug, its brittle and needs to be correctly and gently pulled or else it'll break.

    There is not a it of room down there, but pulling the plugs on the VMS did the trick!

    You can drop the VMS box if you need more room....
