Problems with my MCU 1

Tesla have decided that the main computer on the car should log every file and every autopilot and navigation detail to a chip on the main computer.However this chip was not designed in size and in capacity to last the lifetime of the car.

So in November 2019 owners of cars made before March 2018 all will have a problem and need this chip replacing otherwise the computer might stop working and some aspects of the car will be disabled.

We opted for a preemptive replacement rather than wait for it to be broken and possible needed the car to be towed to a service centre or a third party.

We had this done in June 2020 and are very happy with the the result.It cost about £450 and the Computer is much more responsive now.
