    Car turned off while supercharging

    My experience and hence expectation is that if you sit in the car for 0.5 hours doing nothing, it purposely goes to sleep, shutting off the screen and climate control. I assume this is to save power. Doing virtually anything including touching the touchscreen will wake it back up.

    Overheat cabin after fully tinted with 3M crystalline in 72 degrees outside

    In Settings-Safety, turn on “cabin overheat protection”. This will use a fan or even the air conditioning to keep the interior temperature below 105 degrees. It does use some battery power. Or, just don’t worry about it and use the app to turn on the climate control a few minutes before you...

    Homelink Garage Door Button Locations - Left vs Right

    A much easier solution would be to just leave the buttons programmed as they were and back into the garage. Then they would be in the right places ;-). More seriously, glad you found a solution and amused at how difficult it was.

    Did you request utility permission before installing L2 charger?

    I will simply answer the OP’s question. Yes, in addition to getting a permit from the city, I informed PG&E as I had heard you were supposed to do. They gave me no trouble.

    Vendor Tesla Model S Battery Extended Service Plans from 057 Technology

    How does data get from the BMD to you? Does it have its own cellular connection? Or does it connect to the vehicle owner‘s phone via Bluetooth and use the phone’s cellular connection? Or?

    Car could not call 911

    Thanks for doing this testing. Could you please tell us exactly what you used for the phone book entry. E.g. did you put “911” in for the last name or “nine one one” or what? In addition to that I assume you simply put 911 in for the phone number.

    AP1 ONLY Please -- life after 2018.50.6

    Not everyone loses all settings. Virtually all mine were remembered. I only had to reconnect Bluetooth and wifi if I remember correctly. I’m happy with the upgrade. For me, but not for everyone, it fixed the problem where streaming music frequently skipped the last part of a song and went on to...

    Tesla is an AWFUL software company

    It sounds like you are using a non-Tesla charging cord since you mention an adapter. First, make sure the car is unlocked. Press AND HOLD the the button on the charging cord until the light on the charging port turns white. That means the charging cord has been unlocked. Continue holding the...

    Any tall drivers take delivery of the refreshed S yet?

    I’d suggest you make a post asking for someone to let you sit in their refreshed model S. That is the only way to tell for sure.

    How can you tell that the alarm is activated?

    Leave a window open. Lock the car. Leave key far from car. Reach through the window and open the door. If the alarm sounds, it was on.

    No one can tell you. Sometimes an update gets rapidly rolled out to nearly everyone, sometimes only a few get it.

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    They are getting more than you would get. Elon says others, including you, can have it in 1 month. He tends to be optimized though.
