Used Tesla Parts For Sale | PART 2 of 10 | Rich Rebuilds | Electron Automotive and Bundys Garage

CHRIS NOSALEK WITH ELECTRON AUTOMOTIVE IN WHAT IS THIS ORANGE RIGHT YEP ORANGE CALIFORNIA
THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME I APPRECIATE IT I KNOW YOU HAVE A BUSY SCHEDULE TODAY AND JUST
WANTED TO SIT DOWN WITH YOU CHRIS HAD DONE A VIDEO WITH CHRIS FIX RIGHT YEAH I SAW CHRIS
FIX VIDEO WHERE HE REPLACES A BATTERY ON A PRIUS YEP AND SECOND GENERATION 2004 TO 2009
YEAH SO I HAD SEEN THAT VIDEO AND I’M ACTUALLY IN RIVERSIDE WHICH IS 30 MINUTES FROM HERE
APPROACHED CHRIS AND ASKED HIM IF WE COULD YOU KNOW COLLABORATE ON A VIDEO TOGETHER AND
HE SAID YEAH SURE WHY NOT LET’S DO IT AND I KNOW WE TOUCHED ON THIS A COUPLE MINUTES
AGO DO YOU THINK TESLA IS GOING TO MAKE IT AS A COMPANY MY PERSONAL OPINION I REALLY
DO THERE GREAT BUSINESS PEOPLE YOU KNOW THEIR BUILDING THIS HUGE INFRASTRUCTURE THERE REVOLUTIONIZING
THINGS I MEAN GOING FROM A REGULAR CAR TO A TESLA IS LIKE GOING FROM A FLIP PHONE TO
AN IPHONE IT’S REVOLUTIONARY BEST CAR THAT I HAVE EVER HAD I STILL LOVE ALL THE OTHER
HYBRIDS THE PRIUS THE CHEVY VOLT AND STUFF BUT IT’S MY PREFERENCE HAVE YOU SEEN WHATS
HIS NAME RICH REBUILDS ON YOUTUBE HAVE YOU SEEN THAT GUY ABSOLUTLY WHERE HES BASICALLY
HACKING INTO TESLAS AND TRYING TO GET INTO THE SYSTEMS AND TRYING TO REBUILD THEM FOR
PEOPLE AND TESLA NOT BEING REALLY COMPLIANT WITH HIM AS FAR AS PARTS OR SERVICE OR TECHNICAL
BULLETINS OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT YEAH YOU THINK THATS FAIR UNFAIR AS FAR AS TESLA HOLDING
THAT INFORMATION BACK OH ABSOLUTLY UNFAIR I MEAN IT’S DESTRUCTIVE TO THE FREE MARKET
WE NEED COMPETITION OK JUST LIKE EVERYONE DOES BUT IF YOU NEED SOMETHING MY OWN TESLA
HAD A PROBLEM MY ENTIRE SCREEN WENT BLANK YOU KNOW GOING ON THE INTERNET SEEING ROUGH
PRICES TESLA WAS $2,500 TO GET IT FIXED ALL I HAD TO DO WAS REPLACE A CIRCUIT BOARD SMALLER
THAN MY CELL PHONE AND IT BROUGHT IT BACK UP LABOR TOOK ME LESS THAN AN HOUR TO DO YOU
DID IT HERE IN THE SHOP YEP HOW DID YOU GET THE PART I GOT IT FROM ANOTHER ONE THAT WAS
CRASHED THEY WON’T SELL ANYTHING TO ME OK SO YOU HAD TO GO FIND ONE THEY WON’T SELL
ANYTHING THERES VERY SPECIFIC PARTS THEY WON’T SELL BECAUSE OF SAFETY SO YOU HAD TO GO FIND
ONE CRASHED ONE YEAH EBAY NO I HAD A CONNECTION OKAY HE WAS ABLE TO SET ME UP TOLD HIM EXACTLY
WHAT WAS GOING ON HELPED ME OUT AND GOT IT GOING BUT I FELL THEY NEED COMPETITION BRING
THE PRICES DOWN THEIR REFUSING TO RELEASE SOFTWARE SO THAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE NOT ABLE
TO SERVICE IT AT LEAST THAT’S MY UNDERSTANDING OF IT JUST KIND OF UNFAIR TO THE MARKET YEAH
ABSOLUTELY YOUR IT’S MONOPOLIZED WHEN SOMETHING GOES WRONG YOU HAVE TO GO TO TESLA IF THEY
WANT YOU KNOW $10,000 DOLLARS TO FIX PART A YOU DON’T HAVE ANY OTHER OPTIONS YOU HAVE
TO GO WITH WHAT THEY SAY THERE ARE A FEW PEOPLE THAT ARE RISING LIKE RICH REBUILDS AND I BELIEVE
THERES ANOTHER GUY IN BERKLEY I THINK CAN’T REMEMBER HIS NAME NOW THERE BRINGING A LOT
OF ATTENTION TO IT AND I LOVE THAT I THINK THE MORE ATTENTION THAT TESLA GETS ON IT THE
MORE LIKELY THEY ARE TO OPEN UP THERE SOFTWARE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC SHOPS LIKE US DO YOU
SEE IN THE FUTURE ELECTRON AUTOMOTIVE BEING A FULL TESLA SHOP AS WELL I WOULDN’T FULL
TESLA IN REGARDS TO SPECIALIZING ON THEM EXCLUSIVELY NO SERVICE ABSOLUTELY OK WERE ALREADY PERFORMING
A LOT OF THE SERVICES NOW BUT WERE LOCKED OUT OF A LOT OF OTHER THINGS BECAUSE OF THE
LACK OF SOFTWARE YOU KNOW ANYTHING THAT REQUIRES A FIRMWARE UPDATE OR A REFLASH WERE NOT ABLE
TO DO AT THE MOMENT DO YOU HAVE COMPUTERS THAT WILL TALK TO IT SEE IT OR I YES MAYBE
MAYBE NOT NOT ON THE LEVEL THAT I WOULD LIKE IT’S VERY PRIMITIVE OK BUT YES DO PRIUS I
MEAN THIS IS KIND OF OFF THE SUBJECT DO PRIUS AND LIKE HONDA ELECTRIC VEHICLES DO THEY USE
OBD II YEAH ABSOULTY THEIR SYSTEMS ARE VERY SIMILAR TO ALL THE OTHER CARS YOU KNOW THEY
HAVE MAIN MODULES GATEWAYS BETWEEN THEM YOU RETRIEVE ERROR CODES THE SAME YOU DO IN ALL
OTHER CARS DOES TESLA HAVE OBD II THEY HAVE A CONNECTOR THEY COMMUNICATE THROUGH A DIFFERENT
CONNECTOR THEIR PRIMARY COMMUNICATION THROUGH A DIFFERENT CONNECTOR BUT YES THEY DO HAVE
YOU HEARD THAT OBD III IS COMING OUT SOON YEAH THERES BEEN A LOT OF TALK ABOUT THAT
FOR AWHILE IVE HEARD 2021 22 OK BUT I DON’T THERES VERY VERY LIMITED INFORMATION ON THE
INTERNET I’VE TRIED LOOKING IT UP BUT I DON’T JUST YEAH THERES BEEN TALK ABOUT IT FOR AWHILE
IM ALWAYS EXCITED ABOUT NEW TECHNOLOGY YOU LOVE IT OR WHAT YEAH ABSOLUTELY THATS WHAT
WERE ALL ABOUT HERE ITS THE CARBURETORS AND STUFF THAT I HATE BUT A LOT OF THAT PROBABLY
HAS TO DO WITH MY INABILITY TO WORK ON THEM THE PRIUS AND THE HONDAS HAVE A BATTERY PACK
ARE THEY THE ALMOST THE SAME WEIGHT AND SIZE OR ARE THEY DIFFERENT DOES ONE WEIGH MORE
