They were told by Tesla that the battery was sending a failure to discharge signal.


To my knowledge, a total of six Toyota RAV4 EV's have had the main traction battery replaced. We will start this thread to follow that trend in the future.

My 2014 with 50,500 miles has been at dealer with this warning message since Saturday afternoon. Unlike others who've had the message pop up and they can continue driving, mine appeared when I attempted to start the vehicle and I was not able to start it. We were barely able to get it into Neutral to load it on the flatbed. It was towed to Cabe Toyota in Long Beach, CA. They determined the 12 Volt battery was dead but vehicle generated other error codes that after Toyota Techs reviewed, it was decided a new main battery was needed along with the 12 Volt battery. Driving a 2016 Camry while I await the battery's arrival and installation.

Jonathon B. In San Diego: "Mine was replaced in 2013 only a few months after I got the car."

After 3 weeks at the dealer, Cabe Toyota, we're thrilled to be back in our 2014 Rav4 EV. We were at 50,500 when the double failure occurred. A new traction battery from Tesla was installed along with a new 12 Volt battery. We were in a 2016 Camry SE for 3 weeks and while it's a nice sedan, I prefer the all electric Rav4 EV.

While I have no pictures of the traction battery, clink link below to see the Toyota 84 month 12 volt battery they installed for $100.00

It appears my battery died. The dealership picked one up from Tesla yesterday, hope to have it back by end of this week.

I have extended Toyota warranty on my car, but I think the normal warranty covers it anyway. Battery is 10/100K maybe?

I had a new EV battery installed yesterday. Originally I thought I was seeing my range going up quite a bit, yet after further driving. It appears the new EV battery is smaller than my old one? On full charge with a full battery reset, I am only seeing 108 miles on the screen starting, about 89-90 with extended charge off. Did Tesla swap a smaller battery in or limit the battery further.

Why did they swap the battery?
