This is a failure of the main Telsa Motor, not uncommon in the Toyota RAV 4 EV to have failures between 15k and 100k miles, just polling the group here to see if anyone has had a DU replaced under the 4 year 50k mile Mercedes Warranty. The DU is the single most expensive part other than the battery pack (Traction Battery) and the "Gateway" computer interface/controller.

You can see the description of my replacement in this topic:
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1172&p=6830#p6830

Mine has been replaced twice this year. Once in March and the other two days ago.

Was yours replaced?

Why did yours had to be replaced twice in such a short amount of time, Gleearch?

First welcome. Second, Gleearch was nice enough to direct you to the thread that has the detail you asked about. Please read there.
