On the Tesla supercharger page, it lists a supercharger coming to Point Harbor, NC ("coming soon"). Point Harbor is near the Outer Banks on Rte 158. There is also a more specific page where it says "Target opening by end of 2018".
Anyone heard of any more info about this one?
I think I have a blown fuse for the cigarette adapter plug. I have a 2014 classic. Can someone point me to where the fuse box is located and how to access it? I don't see this info in the owner's manual.
There have been several threads and approaches described to help with cooling the 3rd row seats. With the weather getting hot again, I wanted to post my revised system.
First, I thought it might be helpful to try to summarize the prior approaches (of which I am aware/can recall):
The only options in the design studio now are 70D, 90D and P90D. I'm surprised to learn that no RWD cars are being produced. Sorry if this is already well known, but came as news to me.
I believe that the base 70 (RWD) was recently removed, thus making only -D models available.
I have two questions about the Summon feature - from a 'classic' MS owner. I have not seen this addressed in the v7.1 thread, but maybe I missed it.
1. What size object(s) can the car detect (and not detect) when driving itself into or out of a parking space? What type/size of objects...
I was recently gone for about 2 weeks and collected the below data on lost range while my car sat untouched in our garage. Energy saving was set to off and 'always connected' to on. Range mode was on, if that matters.
Net result was that I lost an average of 6 RM per day. Miles lost correlated...
I'm considering getting a dashcam. It seems a lot of folks here have selected either the BlackVue 550 or 650. But yet there also seem to be reports of problems with the BlackVue systems (this thread).
So - please help me decide on which dashcam is the best option. Specifically, how did...
I'm trying to better understand the recirc vs fresh air modes of the HVAC system. I'm asking to see if there are creative ways to improve the air flow to the 3rd row, which is generally lacking, although it can be improved using a combination of 1) fresh air mode; 2) tinting the windows...
Does anyone have a silicone fobpocket? I believe they are made by a Tesla owner. I'm thinking of getting one, and I'm wondering if anyone has one. If so, I'd appreciate your input on how it works and if you like it or not.
I've noticed that my HVAC has seemed to always be in fresh air mode lately. I am trying to test it out more and am wondering if there are scenarios when the HVAC would be expected to be on recirc. Over the past couple weeks, I have not yet noticed the HVAC in recirculate mode when it is...
Please let me know if I am doing this math correctly. I am taking a road trip soon, with 6 people and a roof box. My testing is that my energy usage is 375Wh/mi at highway speeds with the box on and A/C running pretty good. To be safe, I'm going to assume 400Wh/mi.
What is the most...
I want to route a 12V cable from the center console to the trunk (right behind the rear seats). Can I simply fish it under the rear seats? Have others done this and any input on whether it is straightforward? I am aware the chargers are located there, along with related HV wiring.
The other day I charged at work (J1772). My car finished charging a few hours before I left to go home. When I unplugged and started driving, I was surprised that I still got the dashed yellow 'limited regen' indicators. Shouldn't the car 'keep the battery warm' when it is plugged in? Or am I...
How have you positioned 2 carseats in the MS? We will have a 3 year old and a new baby (in a few months). I'm aware of the LATCH restrictions, but am curious how people have arranged carseats, in terms of how to get both kids into the car and buckled. We have the option of putting...
I received a pop-up today saying 'Congratulations! Your maps have been updated' (not word for word, but that's basically what it said).
The maps definitely were updated, as a road I know has been changed is now properly reflected.
I noticed for the first time today a blue pin on the map. I don't see anything about it in the manual. I don't know what I did to make it appear, and now it is gone. But I did get a cell phone picture of it. Any clues?
Can the voice recognition dial a specific number for a contact? I have not been able to get this to work and not sure if it is possible. A bit disappointed, since even by prior Prius could dial the right number when I said "Dial John Smith home" or "Dial John Smith mobile".
I'm planning a trip and may need to rely on some slow overnight 120V charging. Will turn on the "sleep" mode to reduce drain, of course.
How many miles are people actually getting back at 120V? I understand I can expect 3-4mph - but it would be helpful to know if it is closer to 3 or 4mph...
I've noted that the energy "since last charge" does not usually match the average "energy consumption" (over the latest 5/15/30 miles). It appears to me that energy "since last charge" is usually greater (on a Wh/mi basis) than my average consumption. In my case this comparison is easy...
With navigation and searching for a location (i.e. 'Target', or any chain store), what determines the order that results are displayed in? A few tests seem to indicate that my desired destination (almost always the nearest one) is not first on the list (or even second or third).
Is there a...
I see that on the App, it tells me what the actual inside temperature is of the car. But, I cannot find where this information is displayed on either of the two in-car displays. Can someone help me out?
I've noticed that my MS will turn on the HVAC (or continue to run the HVAC) even when the car is off.
For example, I get to my destination and exit the car. Then start to unload - my son, bags, etc - and the HVAC continues to run.
Similarly, it turns on as soon as I open the door in the...
Would there be interest in putting together a wiki site with tips/tricks for the various MS functions? There are tons of valuable nuggets of information spread about this forum (many in the "things you didn't know about your MS" thread). It seems it would be very helpful to collect them in one...
Just receive my MS on Friday, and super excited!! It's an amazing car, a true game changer. We took it on a short road trip this weekend (~2-2.5hr driving time both Sat and Sun).
I found that the lumbar support rod seemed poorly padded and I felt like I was leaning against a metal rod...
We're planning a short weekend trip from the Raleigh-Durham area to Wilmington. One night stay only, so would be looking to replenish ~150-200 rated miles overnight. This will be our first trip in the MS, so I'd like to be prepared. Can anyone offer tips on EV-friendly hotels in the...
I'm trying to decide about financing via Tesla or elsewhere. I see the value of Tesla financing in that in guarantees that the users of Tesla financing can sell the car at a set price in 3 years. But I don't see how it benefits other MS owners.
Others have said that the Tesla buyback program...
I noted a slight space or gap at the top of my HPWC following install (done myself with wiring by electrician). I'm referring to the way the metal cover fits on the body of the HPWC. The bottom appears flush, but there's a small gap along the top. Is this normal?
Any recommendations for an area electrician to install a HPWC? May also need to add a sub panel.
Also any ideas on expected cost would be great. Location of charger & sub panel will be right next to main panel.
I'm considering the high power home charging option, largely because of the dual charger. I don't need HPWC charging speeds at home. Instead, I'm thinking of installing a NEMA14-50 outlet. Conveniently, the location will be directly next to our main breaker. Also, the NEMA 14-50 outlet...
