Tesla Model S (2012-2024) Service Manual / High Voltage System / Forward Junction Box (Dual Motor) (Remove and Replace)

Warning: Only technicians who have been trained in High Voltage Awareness are permitted to perform this procedure. Proper personal protective equipment (PPE) and insulating HV gloves with a minimum rating of class 00 (500V) must be worn any time a high voltage cable is handled. Refer to Tech Note TN-15-92-003, "High Voltage Awareness Care Points" for additional safety information.

Removal

  1. Disconnect 12V and HV power (refer to procedure).
  2. Remove the wiper motor (refer to procedure).
  3. Remove the LH and RH shock tower to bulkhead struts (refer to procedure).
  4. Release the 2 bolts that secure each fuse box to the front crossmember (torque 5 Nm).
  5. If the vehicle is equipped with air suspension, release the bolts (x2) that secure the air reservoir (torque 2.5 Nm). Carefully set the reservoir in the RH side of the underhood area.

    Note: It is not necessary to disconnect the air lines.

  2. Use a multimeter to check voltages between:
    • B+ to ground
    • B- to ground
    • B+ and B-
    Warning: If any voltage reading is more than 10V, the contactors are not fully opened. Discontinue this procedure immediately. Contact a Field Service Engineer before performing any further work.
  3. Release the bolts (x2) that secure the HV cables to the busbars inside the FJB (torque 4 Nm).
