    Battery percentage drops when parked at work

    This happens to me---and as I said in another post, I park indoors. No one can determine why it happens. Lose about 5% while my car is parked at work.

    Vampire drain issue

    I don't have smart summon. And as I said in my post, I have read the manual.

    Vampire drain issue

    I have an 18-month old Model 3 SR+. When I'm at work, I park in downtown Chicago in a fully enclosed temperature-controlled garage in a high-rise office building. I am losing anywhere from 5% to 7% when parked, during my 8 hour work day. I have tried shutting off WiFI and that didn't do...

    Voice command for phone calls

    Thanks to all. This happens when I have cell service---and with numbers that otherwise dial just fine from the car. So, for example, sometimes it will call my wife, sometimes it won't. Sometimes it will call work, sometimes it won't. These are not occasions of bad cell service. And I can't...

    Voice command for phone calls

    Model 3. SR+ I'm running 2021.24.4. (I have read the manual. Please don't yell at me). There are other threads on this topic but they are all pretty old. In fact in some, they indicate that their problems have been resolved. But I am having a current issue that is intermittent...

    What is the Model 3 SR+ battery size?

    Fascinating. The bottom line is that everything seems to be functioning normally. I recently drove from my home near Chicago to St. Louis. The car had me stop twice en route---to throw in a little charge here, then a little charge there, before I arrived at the destination. I have never...

    What is the Model 3 SR+ battery size?

    This is unbelievably helpful! Of all the posts I've read this best explains what I'm seeing. Just one question---do you know what Teslike bases its table on? In other words, who did the tests? Thanks a million. This is a huge help!

    What is the Model 3 SR+ battery size?

    Great post. (Yes, I'm just now reading it!) That still would come close to the advertised 240 mile range had you taken it to zero? I'm not seeing that kind of efficiency. Even driving conservatively, in perfect conditions, flat terrain (Illinois), and no significant use of air, I ALWAYS get...

    New Range Question

    To everyone who gave me a kind reply, thank you very much. Many of your answers were really useful and constructive. And you were nice. But not everyone. It's astonishing that on these boards, one has to say things like, "Please don't flame me," and "I've read the manual." Once again, many...

    New Range Question

    It's me again. Model 3 SR+. I had been charging to 80%. A Tesla technician told me I should go ahead and start charging to 90%, and just not charge it every night at home----let it go a few days. So I did. Using 77% of my battery, down to 13%, I went only 135 miles, over about 3 days. That...

    Strange development---need your input please

    The only app I have is the Tesla app. I briefly tried Teslafi but found it confusing and deleted it.

    Strange development---need your input please

    UPDATE: The Tesla folks were correct. The breaker had tripped on my 240 outlet (not sure why). That's what had interrupted my charge.

    Strange development---need your input please

    Folks keep telling me that. But I found their interface really difficult to understand and really sort of 1998 looking. Wish they'd update it to be a little more contemporary.

    Strange development---need your input please

    Many thanks to everyone. Tesla tells me they believe it may have been a power failure which interrupted my charge---or that possibly the breaker tripped on my 240 outlet. I will check that when I get home. I am concerned about what seems to be excessive vampire drain---but hopefully this is...

    Strange development---need your input please

    This morning I had something weird happen with my Model 3. I always set it to 80%, and have it set to begin charging at 1am. This works well. This morning I came out to drive to work, and the battery was at 62%. That is more than where it was when I pulled in last night, but far short of...
