    Tesla iphone app "Cannot Connect"

    Haven't been able to connect via iPhone app for some time. Noticed that the cellular bars were at 0 with a slash across them. Rebooted the display and that appeared to reset the cellular with 3.5 bars now showing. App connect is working again. Fortunately noticed that the reboot reset the...

    Log-in Difficulties

    Having trouble today staying logged in. Everytime I move to a new thread or try to post I'm logged out for some reason.

    Camper Mode Question

    I assume that if you unlock the doors by pressing the shift button, but no one opens the door, then the doors can be opened at any time?

    POLL: Have you had to have your 12V battery replaced?

    I think I'm on my fourth at 6,000 miles.

    How Long Till Solar Powered Car?

    Been there, done that. The solar panels on my A8's moon roof are nearly 20 years old and are still going strong. What do they do? Run the HVAC blower motor all summer long to keep the interior of a closed car at ambient temp. Even though the leather is nearly black, I've never burned my...

    3/4 pvc conduit already occupied with 240V 20A

    You would probably exceed the 40% fill rule if you wanted to add the 6 gauges on top of the existing wiring, and enclosing more than three current carrying conductors requires that you reduce the allowed current to 80%, on top of the 80% you have to allow for continuous current situations.

    New owners and early adopter owners: Do I detect a major difference?

    I agree with Flasher. I think much of the sense of an initial tight-nit community had to do with the very small numbers of owners in the early days. Everyone knew each other. Same thing in the Leaf community and in their forum. Now I see Leafs everywhere, and for most, the car is just a car...

    Do I need to upgrade my garage to NEMA 14-50?

    If you have an extra circuit (say for some outlets you don't need), you could upgrade that wiring to 240V cheaply and double your charging speed.

    Beginning to think something is seriously wrong with my car.....

    This has been am issue since the beginning. My pearl white Sig P85 dropped 300 VIN's out of sequence, I suspect due to a need to start over from scratch.

    When does 12V battery actually get charged

    The 12V charges from the main pack battery from time-to-time as needed, under software control. Driving around or plugging in won't change this. Most folks only get about a year out of the 12V before it needs replacement.

    Aftermarket Product Request - Rear camera heater

    I'd like to see a washer nozzle and a jet of compressed air to blow off droplets.

    A real pain removing J1772 adapter from Model S.

    Somewhat related, I've noticed the time between unlocking using the touch screen and relocking has been shortened too much. I can barely get out of the car in time to slip in my adapter before the port locks again.

    Plastic windows coming for model 3?

    I'd be very worried about scratches and yellowing. Plastic headlight lenses turn opaque and yellow quickly here in the land of high UV. That Gorilla glass sounds like a laminate with glass on the outside which might cut the UV down before it hits the plastic. But if the inside is plastic it...
