    Charging port not opening sometimes

    Another update- Friday's scheduled repair was rescheduled again for September 5th due to Parts not arriving yet. I did get confirmation that this fix would be under warranty and the invoice reflects no charge.

    I think I'm going to turn OFF cabin overheat protection

    Not so! Tesla had problems with cabin overheating due to the solar effect of the glass roof and so much black in the interior. If you read what Tesla says in the manual, they state exactly the opposite. That you should never leave children and animals in the car even with cabin overheat...

    Keep cabin overheat protection on permanently

    Sorry, English is my second language. Bad English is my first. ;)

    Keep cabin overheat protection on permanently

    Good question. I have two Teslas. The Model S is driven maybe twice a week locally plus road trips on supercharging. The Y, my wife drives 5-6 times a week and a few days does 150-175 miles. She uses the wall charger with the timer set to give her 80% SOC at her departure time for the long...

    Keep cabin overheat protection on permanently

    Also the TeslaFi app can be setup to keep the car awake by simply polling. This might be more efficient than sentry mode which seems to really hit on that phantom drain number. I've never experimented with it but as I recall it didn't reset the timer on COP which is something I'm looking for.

    Keep cabin overheat protection on permanently

    Keeping the car plugged in has been recommended. Setting the charge current to low is the way the EVSE works when plugged into the 120v outlet with a 15 amp breaker. I could set it higher but that would frequently trip the circuit breaker. It works fine at maintaining my SOC during my off...

    Keep cabin overheat protection on permanently

    For when I travel I use an igloo cooler for drinks and sandwiches too. I added a 12v receptacle that is not switched with it's own fuse I use to keep it running. I believe it draws 5 amps or 60watts. Not bad at all. I've been to Arizona a number of road trips and I agree with you about...

    Keep cabin overheat protection on permanently

    When I reset Cabin Overheat Protection in the morning the car never goes above 105° which is spec according to Tesla. At 105 the fans come on and circulate the outside air to cool it down to 100° when the outside air temperature is the same. On cooler days the fans shut off about 96° when the...

    Charging port not opening sometimes

    Just an update- Based on my photos Tesla decided I needed the new assembly so they ordered it and postponed my repair until Friday the 19th waiting for the part to come in. I got a response back today that they are ready for the repair now. Still confirmed to be done at my house. My SC is...

    Keep cabin overheat protection on permanently

    I also am looking for a solution to this. Sorry if I offend any who live in Alaska but here in Florida the car gets excessively hot. I don't drive it every morning to auto reset the COP. Like just now I forgot to reset it and just checked and the temperature is 148°F. There is some glue...

    Charging port not opening sometimes

    recalibrated? I'll post back what they come up with. Supposed to be mobile service on Monday the 15th. Hope they can fix it here. The local service center is a zoo now with many people picking up new Teslas. Hard to get into their driveway lately. Some friends had similar problem and...

    Charging port not opening sometimes

    I recently noticed a similar issue with my 2020 Model S. It doesn't open with the press on the left. It doesn't open with the Supercharger or Wall charger button. However, if I want to charge I now use the screen unlock button. Then connect. Then I have to touch the start charging for the...

    FSD Beta 10.13

    That's where we disagree. I've seen it too many times creep into a T-bone collision unless I abort and back up quick, same as Chuck had to do. It's what humans do because we don't have eyes at the front of the car. But unlike FSD-beta Humans can put it in reverse and back out of the lane or...

    FSD Beta 10.13

    Only the cars with FSD purchased would get the free hardware upgrade if Tesla determines that is need to fulfill their listed features. I already got one chip set upgrade on my Model S for free as HW3 came out right at the time my Model S was being built with the remaining HW2.5. That was a...

    FSD Beta 10.13

    I don't need to. Chuck uses that corner case because it is right around the corner from his home. But there are probably 10-100 million occluded intersections, some more or less blinded that Tesla will need to solve besides Chuck's corner. You can play games with your micrometer and...
