    It looks like all car companies build in visual sensors for lights if they blink fast you have burnt broken and a poor connection on a signal light. It broken voltage on closed loop. Electrical system.

    But car diagnostic tools should locate sensor relay areas of electrical concern .

    Are these insurance or broker damaged sell offs? Insurance companies would be cheaper to buy from or owners who option to keep the right off.

    The gremlins might get worse by super charging and that's why Tesla doesn't want to offer it on rebuilds.

    Its cool to get a $50k car for $25k all in. BUT, what's a salvaged car worth later when you want to sell it? Is this just a fun project or a financial viable one? Would this car sell for the $25k he put into it, less, or more?

    @10:35 ish... Kinda' funny when the ad popping up/ad-sense placed.... is for, of all things, "Evannex" (or similar, didn't catch exact name.. went away too quickly) A company that provides after-market TESLA parts. LOL Nice score IF you know how to source & repair/replace these items! "didn't need..... have more than 7 cars already......." Feel free to slap your advertising & promo ALL over any 1 of 'em & I'll drive it all around Chgo/WI. Situation left in, deems nec of reliable wheels now + great way to market AND save space/make room for another. Win/win if U ask me.. ;) lol ~ Thanks for sharing this one. In the end, should all turn out ok, you'll have quite a beautiful car & for an even better price/overall savings! MUCH better than paying full price or anything near it, for a new Tesla, that's for sure!!!! Being able to fix just about anything, willing to take on that risk, expense, challenge AND having good friends + business connections/associates to pitch in = proves to be an invaluable asset. :) ~Stay safe & be well.

    @m-KHS-1 An actual hard reset means it starts from factory regardless of current state. You cant hard-reset out of any lockouts uploaded (without permissions!) by Tesla. That isn't a real hard reset in my book.

    Good grief, people are toxic ... And I bet those contradictive assheads are the same ones moping about inflation in the economy. A similar issue here in the Datsun S30 community. You've got dummies price gouging every way they can. Some that I found on eBay was some guy in AZ selling brake hose clips for S30s at 15 EACH and that DOESN'T include the extra 8.99 shipping he wants for a single sheet of bent spring steel. Also, some other bloke selling Datsun Skinner Union carbs for a 240Z at 200usd... Until you notice the 350usd shipping and handling fee... It sometimes infuriates me, then I have to stop and laugh at them becuase such crooked tactics will never sell (those carbs still haven't sold... 8 months and going)
