I just replaced the battery in my Tesla but the "Replace 12v Battery Soon" Alert is still present, what do I do to reset it?
This alert usually self-clears after replacing the 12V battery, in about 10% of cases, it does not (depending on certain conditions of the vehicle). If your error did not self-clear upon install then you need to do a "deep reset" which involves resetting the DC/DC converter. The procedure depends on the vehicle but the goal is to fully power-down the vehicle so the DC/DC converter resets itself and learns the new battery.
Summary of Procedure: "Power Off" on MCU, Remove 12V battery, Remove First-Responder Loop (S or X), wait 2 minutes, Reconnect First Responder Loop (S or X), Reconnect 12V battery, Step on Brake.
For Model 3: Rather than using First-Responder Loop unplug the harness located under the passenger side rear seat (easy to access via small lever under seat), the plug will be covered by a foam protective cover and will be black or grey in color (NOT ORANGE).
Battery is reading 0.0V with MultiMeter, what is going on?
Our batteries have a built-in BMS (Battery Management System) which has the ability to "disconnect" internally in the event of a dangerous situation, this includes OVER voltage, OVER temperature and OVER current (shorting of terminals included).
In these scenarios a RESET is needed.
To reset place battery in a cool safe location without anything connected to it for 5 minutes. Then apply 12.0V - 14.8V to terminals. After a few minutes remove the voltage from terminals and check battery voltage again, it should be restored.
First Gen Model S installation, Battery Negative lug doesn't seem to fit when battery installed?
