Today we take a deeper and more comprehensive dive into the flooded model X. Things get more interesting and I'm wondering if this thing will ever run again

    Rich my man, 1st off.. i Love your vids.. i have learned sooooo much from your work! I have many plans of my own design for some DIY EV toys.... but thats all for another time. Thank You for all the hard work you do for the rest of us. I just wanted to say thanks and to say how sad i am that you're so far away, i often do complex rework on PCBs of all kinds and could easy swap the chips you mentioned, as well as repair on any other boards you come across in your projects.... alas, shipping to and from WI would make this far more expensive than the worth. (shucks) Anyways, keep up the good work and GL in future endeavors!!!!

    Great video,. You might want to forget the ultrasonic cleaner, instead use your home kitchen automatic dishwasher. I've used mine to clean many smoke and fire damaged circuit boards in the past. Try it you'll love the results. I usually flush with alcohol after removing from dishwasher then blow drying with compressed air and hair dryer on low.

    I'm watching your videos about dissembling tesla and what supersizes me is that you took out a part and saying "Oh this is BMS", "this is that", "this is to manage that and it is working with that" that is quite a knowledge you have there! Did you even think about creating some "manual" about tesla or a "map" where are most important parts like BMS etc?

    There is no technical reason to require the drive unit to be matched to the controller / key. It's soley to prevent repair; just like Apple is doing matching motherboards to displays in their new displays, so even if you crack it you cannot just replace it; you need to buy a new computer or have them essentially give you a refurbished computer at a super high price. I think John Deere has been pulling similar garbage on some of their recent tractors and what not, where the engine and transmission have some sort of security on them so if one breaks you can't replace just one, and third party units won't work at all. This sort of crap should be illegal.

    Hey Rich, I see a freescale processor on that Central Body Module board which typically contains vehicle related information. I can read/write using our specialized electronics tools at my workplace, what's the mask information on that freescale? As for U14 and U39 you mentioned, any mask information on them? We work with complex chips when creating keys for most high end vehicles and always read and save dumps prior to resoldering on to new board. I'm the electronics tech lead at Auto Key Pro in Canada and would love to get involved in a Tesla project. DM to discuss further. P.S. After seeing this video, I ordered the same module from eBay which I should receive next week and will be attempting to read the data from the chips you identified.

    Rich, This will probably get buried but I have a full compliment of SMD rework tools and do work like you need there on a daily basis. I even have the means to backup and flash those eeproms, so if something does not go right it can be restored back to original condition with replacement eeproms. Hit me up if you need some help.
