Update for Outside of North America Users

On July 27, 2018, Tesla updated their online EDR Reporting Service portal at The current report generation service version is v18.30.1.

As you recall, when the EDR Retrieval Kit for Tesla vehicles was released for sale through Crash Data Group, there was a disclaimer that stated, “The Tesla EDR Retrieval Program and Tesla EDR Report Service are designed for vehicles configured for the North American market region only. Report elements found in this report may not have not been validated for vehicles configured for regions outside of North America.”

As a function of this update, effective immediately, the Tesla EDR Reporting Service will no longer generate a data translation report from EDR data files retrieved from vehicles configured for distribution outside North America. When an EDR file from a non-North American configured Tesla is uploaded to the Tesla EDR Report Service portal, the result will be a dialog box displaying:

Tesla Event Data Recorder

This will occur no matter what retrieval hardware is used and no matter what region of the world the file is uploaded from. The EDR Retrieval Kit for Tesla Vehicles will still successfully retrieve the raw EDR data from all Tesla vehicles (except the Roadster), but the translation of that data into a report will only be available for North American configured vehicles.

Contact Crash Data Group for additional information if needed.

NOTE: This is not a Bosch product and does not work in conjunction with the Bosch CDR Tool.

Accessing the EDR Data

To access EDR data from a Tesla vehicle you’ll need a Windows computer, the EDR Retrieval Hardware Kit, the Tesla EDR retrieval program and a MyTesla account

Report Service

Tesla currently provides a free online service at where users can generate reports from retrieved EDR data files. After registering at, the user may upload EDR data files from their computer and generate reports in a PDF format. These reports contain important information regarding data polarity, application limitations, and other data limitations that should be reviewed carefully by the user in the context of the facts of a given event.

Data Retrieval

EDR Data can be retrieved from all Tesla Model S, Model X and Model 3 vehicles. Tesla Roadster, which was produced from 2008 to 2012, is equipped with a RCM but does not have an EDR.

Accessing and retrieving data requires connecting to and powering the vehicle’s RCM. There are two methods for accessing and retrieving recorded data from the RCM:

  • In-vehicle retrieval: requires that the vehicle is capable of providing 12 V DC power to the RCM and that the CAN connection between the CAN connector and the RCM is intact. Unless both of these conditions can be satisfied, direct-to-module retrieval is required.
  • Direct-to-module retrieval: In the Model X and the Model 3, the vehicle’s RCM is located on the floor of the passenger compartment, under the center console and between the seats. In the Model S, the vehicle’s RCM is located on the floor of the passenger compartment, under the center screen.

For Model S and Model X in-vehicle retrieval, the CAN connector is located behind a trim panel under the vehicle’s center touchscreen.
