    home charging dropped to 15 amps

    To the questions about the plugged getting unplugged or halfway out, I don't know how it has happened. It has always had a tight fit for the three years I have been using it (insert Michael Scott response here). It is on the side of the house and in a enclosed housing, and no one really walks...

    home charging dropped to 15 amps

    OK, messages all received! It is clear I have dodged a bullet, and to all the comments, your corrective feedback has been received and learning has happened. I am calling a new electrician and will supercharge until it is fixed

    home charging dropped to 15 amps

    Have been charging at home since I took delivery July 2018, using a Nema 14/50 installed just for charging using the portable charger that comes the the M3. A week ago, I got a lot of messages over night about charging interrupted due to overheating at the box, and long story short, the...

    auto pilot sudden stopping

    Ok, will do a "phantom braking" search. Tried searching with "sudden braking" and autopilot but no luck.

    auto pilot sudden stopping

    I have an extended range on a first day reservation with the stripped down autopilot, added during the brief window of time you could get it for $2K after purchase. It does lane steering and cruise control, but not navigate on autopilot or lane changes Anyway, I'm getting weird sudden stopping...

    EAP and FSD Order Delivery Wait Time

    I had a false alarm last night, it gave me an alert for a 45 minute update, but when I checked after the update, no AP. Just more on security...4th day for me

    Access Denied

    I'm back in and the autopilot price is now changed to $2000, was $4000 last week and $7000 (!) two months ago. I did not buy EAP when I purchased last July. So I just lost access while they were updating that order page.

    Confused about Autopilot discount

    I bought my M3 in July 2018 and did not get EAP. Now, if I read tesla's release correctly, I can upgrade to Autopilot for $2000 and then also get Full Self Driving for $3000 more? Is that right? And when is this happening? My tesla.com account still shows these upgrades as costing $4000 and...

    Problems with software 9.0

    What’s the average Wh/mi you are getting

    just to give more info if anyone cares: I am getting 198 wh/mile, 18 inch wheels, aero covers always on, tires always at 45 psi, and I drive at 68 mph on the freeways here (when traffic allows). I don't want a speeding ticket, and my freeway commute has lots of hidden CHP radar traps along the...

    What’s the average Wh/mi you are getting

    5350 miles 198wh/mile. I started over 300 wh/mile, but have stopped drag racing at each on ramp and red light and use regen more consistently.

    My free trial of Autopilot ended...

    I have a 90 mile commute three days a week and a 25 mile commute the other two. I would use it every day, and I started to feel the benefit, as my driving is all on our freeways out here. BTW, freeways are considered surface streets in SoCal, every one gets on the freeway just to get their Big...

    My free trial of Autopilot ended...

    My two week trial ended, and much like Red missed Andy when he escaped from Shawshank, I miss my friend... At first I wasn't that impressed with autopilot, but as the days went on and we got to know one another, a real collaborative relationship developed. I learned what I could trust...

    Only one question to answer for any fence sitter

    For anyone reading wondering about ordering a model 3, here is my advice after having my 3 for six weeks: There is only one question to ask about the model 3: Can you afford it? That is it. Any other question is moot, the 3 has it's many strengths and some quirks, but I have yet to find a...

    My Autopilot Trial

    Spiceware: what I mean is it can't look ahead and see what is coming a quarter or half mile ahead, like we can see ahead and see conditions changing. And that is just a limit of the cyborgs right now, and really an obvious limitation. It is just I get a little impatient as I can spot trouble a...

    My Autopilot Trial

    Got Autopilot yesterday, some quick thoughts on my experience so far: -It is cool. -It has no finesse. Autopilot can't see more than the car ahead of it, so it can not make any anticipation of things to come. One of the drawbacks of not having a frontal lobe, to be fair. -It is all digital...

    2018.28.1

    got mine last night. It gave me a message that it added overheat protection (but I already had that) as well as the extra clicks and sounds. I am looking to see if it fixed my false brake light and windshield fluid low, that I was still getting. Also hoping it minimizes the substantial...

    Energy Cost?

    LOL, yes, if only it was .11 cents...Burbank TOU is complicated, kind of like figuring out the charges in a PPO insurance plan (co-pays, co-insurance, deductibles, etc.).

    Energy Cost?

    Burbank Water and Power, (California), is .11 cents per kwh for first 300, then .16 after that. There is a TOU plan, .08 cents kwh from midnight to 7 am but .26 cents from 4 to 7 pm during the summer and .16 all other hours. Have the wife and kids unable to keep the AC high from 4 to 7 so I...

    FM radio stopped working

    That did it. Now I just have to figure out some other "quirks": headlights come on during the day at random times, overheat protection still doesn't come on even after I have driven the car multiple times during the day, and still get the random brake on and window washer fluid low warnings...

    no, didn't try a reboot: will do so and see what happens, thanks

    FM radio stopped working

    All of a sudden, my FM radio is not working, no station comes through. It has worked since I took delivery a couple of weeks ago, and I ordered back in May. Did I miss something about this ending? Or am I doing something wrong? Or maybe I disabled something by accident? I hit FM radio and try...

    Cabin overheat not engaging

    not being sarcastic, but is 202 considered "low" for the battery?

    Wait, now it is on! All morning it wouldn't engage, but after turning it off and on several times on the touch screen, it seems to be on. Climate down to 109. o_O confusing...

    Cabin overheat not engaging

    My cabin overheat seems to only come on when it wants to. It is set to ON in security settings. some days it functions fine, and other days, like today, I can't get it to engage. The cabin is at 120 degrees right now, and still no overheat protection. I have 202 miles of charge, drove last...

    Red not the best color for Model 3?

    Took delivery of Red with Aero wheels: The best combo! For me that is...to each their own...for me it was, as my daughter said, "go big or go home!" Going big was going red and I am more than happy with this choice, couldn't imagine driving another color

    Took Delivery today

    Well, I wasn't planning on doing anything about it. It doesn't bother me and hasn't created any performance issues.

    Tip - make the service appt ASAP

    sorry to hear that. I have a June build and so far, it has been perfect, no rattles, all body panels lined up good, everything works. I do have that intermittent brake and windshield wiper error show up, but other than that, I have a good June build.

    Red Brake Warning Light Stays On

    +1 on having this issue: it is intermittent, happens with either the brake or the windshield wiper fluid warning light, not both at one time. And it happens every 7th or so time I start the car. I am going to try the reset suggestion tonight and see if it makes a difference

    Do you carry your EVSE in the car?

    OP, I was wondering the same thing, leaving it at home as my primary charger (installed a 14-50 outlet) and take it for any trip longer than my daily commute.

    Took Delivery today

    Thanks, we will have to be careful not to park next to each other at Gelson's....I see you went with aero wheels too...I'm gonna keep them on for now.

    Do I have to ACH down payment or can I take a bank check when I go to pick up?

    In So Cal, I used a cashier's check for the full amount, the funds for my loan were deposited by the bank right into my checking account. I could have used ACH, but felt safer going with the cashier's check. When I got to the delivery center, they let me know that I could have used a personal...

    Took Delivery today

    I would expect you will have a good experience, they seemed to have a good system and flow. It's in a weird part of Marina Del Rey, tucked in an ugly corner off the Marina Freeway, but no matter, the facility is clean and shiny.

    Am I going to regret the aero wheels?

    went with aero wheels with my red model 3, NO regrets. I hated them when I say them in pictures, but then I saw a Red M3 with aero wheels in the wild and it looked much better in person. I am very happy with my 18 inch aeros

    My delivery..

    Took delivery of mine today, came with one of each phone cable. I was told I had to buy another one of the iphone cords off the tesla website and install it myself. It's 14 bucks. But they gave me a Model 3 die cast car as a gift in red, my color, so all is good!

    Took Delivery today

    Delivery of my Red Model 3 today, aero wheels, PUP in Marina Del Rey California. I was first day reservation, on line during the presentation, non-owner. April 18 invite, May 24 configuration, if anyone cares anymore. Everything was great, except the traffic there SUCKED, took over an hour...

    Process

    +1 on this: my documents to sign came thru in an email, July 11, my delivery is July 14. Decided to bring a cashier's check, got nervous about ACH not clearing in time.

    27 hours from delivery and I don't have a final balance due yet!

    I got my final amount late in the day July 11, but I decided against ACH and got a cashier's check for the amount. My ISA said either ACH or cashier's check. I got nervous that I wouldn't have time for funds to transfer for my delivery tomorrow, so I am bringing the check. Now I am afraid to...

    ACH vs. Cashier's Check

    I decided to go with a cashier's check as my ACH tab only showed up late last night. Don't want to take a chance that it takes 3 business days to go thru or anything that might delay getting the car on Saturday. Have the check, going to sleep with it until then to keep it safe :)

    ACH vs. Cashier's Check

    I'm scheduled to pick up my Red Model 3 this Saturday, and wondered if anyone had trouble using ACH to pay. The ACH button has not shown up in my account yet, and the ISA says it will "a few days before delivery". But I am worried that if it shows up too close to Saturday, the transaction...

    NEMA 14-50 8 gauge wire

    Just to those asking why am I trying to save money on the wire, that is not the issue. my electrician recommended #8, not #6 wire, and I don't know anything about electricity so I was asking for advice. This is not a money issue, especially if it is just 30 bucks, just looking for why he would...

    NEMA 14-50 8 gauge wire

    eprosenx: Thanks for your detailed analysis. To some degree this is still all French to me, but your last comment I understand! The electrician told me he would run the wire in conduit. I am thinking of going with him, as he has wired my whole house, upgraded my panel and wired two outside...
