    yes, Tesla replaced my non-working keyfob for free

    someone posted awhile back complaining that tesla charged them to replace a non-working keyfob on a vehicle under warranty. I just had the Tesla mobile service guy out to do some recall service items and told them when they called to setup the appointment that one of our keyfobs was dead. The...

    16 mi per day phantom drain, sitting in an airport. 2nd car on the same app the problem?

    2018X is sitting in a (covered) airport parking lot for the past 10 days. We peeked at it for the first time yesterday and the battery was way down. Sentry mode is (and was) off. Car interior says 85deg, and interior climate control is off. We've lost ~160miles of range in the past 10 days. We...

    Tesla Buys $1.5B in Bitcoin, Will Accept as Payment

    why? so there aren't enough whole bitcoins. Fine. price inflates by 100x and the unit of trade becomes 1/1000th of a bitcoin. I'm not a BTC fan, but this isn't a reason to be against it.

    2020.48.30 Firmware curse - now AP and pillar cams gone

    Recently got the 48.30 patch. This is the first non-trivial drive since the update. The cruise-control is behaving weirdly. - no one else around, but multiple times it's acted like it detected something and dumped the speed - twice when that happened it dropped the target speed from 65->55...

    What have you named your car?

    Puppy. Every time you walk out in the garage while carrying the key it perks up like it wants to go for a drive....like a puppy when you walk near the leash.

    Supercharger Connector and Covid-19

    we did a long-haul trip 2.5 weeks ago and were concerned about exactly this. A thing of disinfecting wipes solved the issue, trivially. Before picking up the handle, you just wipe it down, and use the wipe to hold it with while you plug it in. solved, without any real extra fuss.

    what's needed to plug the mobile charger into 220?

    Recently took the X half-way across the US and we'll be staying put where we are for several weeks, likely months. I brought the mobile charger, since this house doesn't have a wall-charger installed. I forgot to bring whatever adaptor it needs for 220. :/ Since we aren't going _anywhere_ for...

    COVID-19: Superchargers Unavailable due to Closures

    Can confirm the larger (new, 250kw) Reno station is closed. There was a truck parked across the entrance through the adjacent parking garage. The older, 6 plug, Reno site is avail but 2 are down. Expect it to be very slow due to heavy demand

    supercharger stations are still up - even w/ everyone hunkering down?

    we've arrived. Over the weekend there was rather more traffic in California than I would have expected. Everywhere else it was pretty much just semi's. We have 3 drivers, and didn't want to stay in hotels, so we just rotated. The only stops were @ superchargers to power up (and nap!). The car...

    supercharger stations are still up - even w/ everyone hunkering down?

    We need to make a treck half-way across the US. Elderly MIL is in the mid-west and there's no one else around to help her. We're heading out from CA tomorrow AM and will be driving the X to get there. (we have a place near her, so we're fine as far as where to stay once we're there). It'll be...

    iPhone ap deleted my X?

    "logging onto tesla.com I still see everything." X was always there @ tesla.com Went to check it this AM and the car was in a weird state. doors unlocked automatically, car would shift in to drive, AC was on...but both screens were blank. I had to scroll-wheel reboot it to get them to come...

    iPhone ap deleted my X?

    went to up the target charge to 100%. There's discussion here about packing up the X and driving to the summer cabin because everyone would rather hunker down for a month or two there than our rest-of-the-year place. As soon as I opened it I got a notice that 'puppy' (the nickname of the X) was...

    heat under passenger seat?

    the other day I was rummaging around in the back seat foot-well while sitting in the drivers seat and was surprised to notice it was distinctly warm. I think it's related to the heater (forced air, not seats) being on. It's directly UNDER the front passenger seat, and not under the driver's...

    Blog Tesla’s Full Self Driving Option to Receive $1,000 Price Increase

    I know a fair bit about how this sort of ML approach works. It's less push-button, just add data, than people describe it as. Overfitting is the biggest concern w/ insufficient data, and yes - more data makes that less likely, but you may need __A LOT__ more data if you haven't tagged things...

    Only hitting high 60s? I checked it was a 150KW site

    Thanks for replies. -> it was ~65deg F outside, sunny and dry. Yes, we Nav'd to the chargers but in both cases I was charging for more than an hour, so doubt that'd be the issue. -> it's a late 2018 w/ ~8k miles on it...I'd hope there aren't modules failed that would limit this, but it'll be...
