Hi - Is preconditioning really important?
I saw a youtube video stating that it does not make a difference in energy saving but it is good for the life of the battery.
What outside temperature should I condition it at? What temperature is considered cold for the battery?
It was only 55 degrees...
Can anyone clarify what this alert means? So far the local Tesla techs have told me "there is an external isolation and your vehicle may not restart". Exciting!
@Jason F : I see that you have been helpful on Alerts; hope you have some words of wisdom.
Of course my 12v died last night...into the 3 day holiday weekend. ohmmu is out of stock so even if I wanted to wait for that battery I can't get it. I checked interstate battery they don't even offer tesla 12v batteries. Where can I buy a 12v battery for my Model 3 TODAY in the Houston area?
My car Tesla Model 3 2018
I bought new SLA 12V battery, after replacement, after 4-5 hours the error appears again
Tell me what could be the reason? Appeared after update 2022.20.7.
According to Sandy Munroe, the structural battery pack has a repairability factor of zero (1:16). Not good if it turns out to be true. And it's going to make it harder to recycle and recycling is what makes the environmental costs of making the battery less of a burden long term.

This is an incredibly well done video by Lucid to explain their battery pack. A lot of it is similar to how Tesla does their cell/module design in the older Model S battery pack but it goes a long way to demystifying how they work.
Give it a watch!
