    Alert warning: "Vehicle may not restart. Service is required" Code BMS_a035. "Electrical ...."

    Did that work? Just got the message today.

    2021.4.15.12 now...?

    My 3 updated to .4.10 just a couple of days ago, then updated to .4.15.12 this morning. my Y updated to .4.18 yesterday. There definitely isn’t any order to the releases. no new features have been noticed on any. And I haven’t come across any animals in the Y yet to see that “change”

    Last update 48.26 Netflix [not working]

    I always just touch the battery icon, so I’ve never run into this peobblem. But a very interesting observation. And more proof that this was a very half baked UI.

    Difficulty swiping trip and tire pressure cards in new driving visualisation

    I’ve turned the heat up trying to do this, and I was nowhere near the heat. the only thing I like about this update is the bottom menu, but it still has its flaws. I can’t really swipe right to raise the volume anymore as the volume is now so close to the edge. I can lower the volume...

    Last update 48.26 Netflix [not working]

    I’ve noticed the loading time is a lot longer now. To the point where I think it’s frozen, but it’s actually still loading. it’s taking about a minute on my 3

    Are SR3s hard to sell? [tesla model 3 SR / SR+]

    Sadly there really isn’t a good method to see degradation. The system is using an educated guess. And the reported number is thrown off by seasonal changes. I have about 16mi more range in summer then winter according to the BMS This is why I leave my car in % rather then remaining range.

    Precondition car plugged in vs not plugged in

    This is my experience as well. If I didn’t leave myself enough time to sufficiently warm the car with your step 1, I have to use your step 2. Sometimes I’ll set the temp higher then I’ll need, but not “HI” to give it a little extra, but still have it cycle.

    Are SR3s hard to sell? [tesla model 3 SR / SR+]

    I was curious about this too. But I think quite a few of them will be leases which will get returned to Tesla. Only time will tell.

    Mt Vernon IL to Louisville Ky

    The 3P is pretty bad on range compared the anything with stock wheels. Our model y feels like it could easily out distance our 3 by 50 miles. A lot of this has to do with resistive heater in the older 3 and the heat pump in the Y. make sure you do a good solid prewarm, set tire pressures...

    Badly missing the lane change feature in Y (with no FSD package)

    I think you’re missing the point of subscription. No matter the price, it’s an ongoing income for the life of the company. It creates stability, that is more valuable then a large chunk of money at once. It has also been proven in the last few years that there is more money to be made with...

    Badly missing the lane change feature in Y (with no FSD package)

    This is the boat I’m in. I have FSD on one car, and was hoping EAP might come back for the other car. Time will tell. EAP is best bang for buck in many (not all) respects.

    Favorite part about 2020.48.26... changing the charging threshold

    I’ve been having this too more recently, until a recent cold snap.

    Favorite part about 2020.48.26... changing the charging threshold

    beat me by the smallest of margins.

    Favorite part about 2020.48.26... changing the charging threshold

    Go to Settings > Display > to a little toggle near your temperature and psi settings where it says “energy” and kms/miles or something like that. I can’t remember what it is without going to the car. But once you switch it will change the battery indicator to % instead of distance remaining...
