Re: How long did you wait for a motor replacement?

Yes it is D0013, I probably heard them wrong on the phone. Still minimal communication with lots of misinformation from Toyota Carlsbad. I hope to hear more today. I also asked if they will replace the coolant heater with a used unit since there are no new ones available. They don't want to but I sa...

Re: How long did you wait for a motor replacement?

So, Toyota Carlsbad is waiting for authorization for the warranty replacement on my DU. It has a coolant leak. They also say that this could be causing the car to prevent charging, and that Tesla will not help them proceed with further diagnostics until the faulty DU is replaced. They also say the c...

Re: How long did you wait for a motor replacement?

My car is at Toyota Carlsbad due to a charging problem. They have not communicated with me about resolving the charging problem, but they did check the speed sensor for coolant and I need a new drive unit. So, we will see how long it takes to get a DU. But hopefully they will fix the charging issue....

Re: New California Corridor Fast Chargers Installed

Anything for the poor neglected southern route - I-8 East from San Diego to Phoenix? So far I'm only aware of the Electrify America(?) chargers at Bank of America in El Centro, with only one Chademo plug. I'm considering approaching the owner of the gas stations at the Jacumba exit. He spent a ton o...

Re: Preferred Dealers for Repairs / Warranty

The first step in diagnostics listed in the service manual is to check your 12V battery, as this error code can be improperly set by a drop in the 12V battery voltage. Batteries more than 3 years old are often suspect. Beyond that, it's either a problem in the wiring harness (which is what your dea...

Re: Preferred Dealers for Repairs / Warranty

I normally (which is nearly never) use Toyota of El Cajon. I have a check EV issue now and I called them for an appointment. They quoted a $155 diagnostic and they would have the car 2 to 4 days for evaluation. This might be realistic but it didn't make me happy. So I declined and contacted Toyota C...

Re: Leviton EVSE issue

I have seen issues with house wiring and plugs for EVSE equipment. After the charger has run for an hour or more I check temperature at the breaker, plug and cables. I have found connections that become loose or oxidized mostly at the plug, but also the wiring connections at the breaker or inside th...

Re: Cannot charge

[/quote]Thanks for the pictures. What were the symptoms of a fuse malfunction on this car?[/quote] I went to use the car and realized it did not charge. I reconnected the charger and started a charge. It tried to start charging a couple of (few?) times but was not successful. I tried a different cha...
