Working on fixing up a non-running Tesla Model S, we finally get a computer to talk to the car to clear out some errors. Hopefully, this will let the car run!

We finally got the computer connected to the car! Unfortunately, our short-term rental of the Tesla Toolbox software was already up! We got a call back from our 3rd party Tesla repair guy. We were able to have him remotely control my computer with it set to a local connection to the car. We cleared out the Battery Isolation Error, but ended up having another issue – a High Voltage Interlock error. Once we figured that out, no MORE ERRORS!

The car’s service manual is available through Tesla online:

You will need to first have a Tesla account and then purchase/rent access to the software:

A laptop is connected to the car with an ethernet diagnostic cable like this:
Keep in mind that the cable for the S/X is different than that for the 3/Y.
The cable connects to a port in the car behind a panel in the dash which is covered when the driver’s side door is closed.
