    Daughter board?

    I have a November 2015 build a P90D. My MCU has gone out twice in 6 weeks. I have had the car towed to Tesla service both times. The first time it took less then an hour to fix as they said an "update" jammed the system and knocked out my MCU. So they re flashed it? Now 6 weeks later, the...

    Blank Touchscreen, no Nav, Phone etc. ??????

    I went out to the car today (late 2015 P90D 27K mikes) and the drivers screen said, "Please wait for your Tesla to Power Up." I waited 3-4 minutes and the screen in front of the steering wheel came up. But no touchscreen. I tried the brake and holding in the 2 wheels on the steering wheel. No...

    Customer Service

    When I bought my 1st "S" in 2014 I thought the CS was fantastic. I got my 2nd in 2016 and it was good. Now, I don't think there is any in S. Cal. I can't get anyone on the phone to even answer a basic. The sales staff says use the "chat" line to get questions answered. Th chat line says all...

    New Battery for P90D. A Big surprise :)

    My P90D battery was just replaced. The tec in Oceanside said he did not know why. He said the test said replace and the factory said yes. It is lousy that you can't find out what was wrong. They also said they could not tell me anything about the replacement battery. Just that it is...

    Battery replacement 11/15 P90D

    Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with a battery replacement. My car has 23,000 miles and is having the battery changed. Not sure why yet. I will ask if the battery is new or refurbished. Also if I will/can get a more recent technology battery. Any experience or thoughts on...

    The last 3-4 updates I have gotten for my P90D came in the middle of the night, as usual. What was NOT usual was the "explanation" that always accompanies the morning after the update was NOT there?? Rather then a nice long explanation of what was improved or changed there was a simple...

    Radar Detector

    Any thoughts as which one to buy? Also location of mounting etc. ? It would seem a good place to be mounted is inside the small storage area below the large screen. Thoughts?

    Supercharger Pay dates

    I visited a supercharger today and was told by the Tesla Valet that cars purchased after 1/15/17 will NOT get free charging at superchargers. He did not know the rate that would be charged but thought it would be buy the "mile" and not the time charging. He did say that currently all owners...

    Has anyone ordered the rear console or / and the car cover? They look good and the prices appear fair. I'm wondering about the actual quality? Good looks on a computer screen are great but…….. I'm inclined to order both!

    I understand "Rated Range" but PLEASE explain this to me

    First my new P90D is my 2nd "S". I had a 2014 S 85 and owned it for a year. I have been through the #'s not making sense but starting to understand them. We bought a new P90D (I understand it is about the same range as an S 85) and I do love it BUT…… Last night we charged it at home to 250...

    P 90 D Dash Message "No autopilot available call Tesla service" ? Anyone else?

    I have had the car for about a month. It is my 2nd Tesla. I get this message about once a week. If I park the car and leave for a period of time, it is not there upon starting and driving. If I stop for a few minutes only, it is still there. This disables cruise control and all self driving...

    Does anyone think it makes any difference…………….

    That a 2015 is a car made in 2015 (rolls off the assembly line per a Tesla sales manager) even on 12/31/15. A 2016 is a car that rolls off 1 day later on 1/1/16 etc. Now we all know that virtually every other car made cold be a 2016 as early as 7/1/15. People seem top still feel (as do...

    Charging Reduction rather Quickly??

    Just an easy question (probably) for most. I bought the car 2 months ago. "Normal" charge was 261 miles. That being the setting suggested by Tesla for a normal (80% I think) charge. I realize you lose some "miles" as the car gets more miles, but in 1,500 miles (I bought the car from Telsa...

    Interior trunk lights and door lock questions

    A few questions. Maybe I just don't get it or find them :) 1) Are there lights for the trunks. When I open the rear hatch and front hatch there is no light. Is it a setting? Or simply no light? 2) When I pull up to let someone in the passenger seat, I have to open my door so it presents...

    We just bout a 2014 85 with duel chargers. We are retired and don't drive the Telsa every day. We were going to have an electrician run a 50 amp 220 line close to the car. We do have a 110 receptacle within 10 feet already. We also have a super charing Tesla station within 6 miles. Sooooo...

    Anyone else have HORRIBLE radio reception?

    The internet radio is great (I think it is called "slacker"?) BUT AM is terrible :cursing:. We listen to the news from time to time in the car and also get freeway updates on news channels which is important in S. Cal. Lots of echoes and drifting voices on stations that are perfectly clear...
