    Model 3 2021 not recognising music from USB-C stick

    Hard & a PITA. Example, My 2013 Volt could play media off my iPhone when plugged into car usb . Apple changed things & feature stopped working or feature went away in iOS. That’s just one phone manufacturer to worry about.

    Those don’t work in 2024 model y, the car Jennym said they own. Notice the disclaimer “Temporarily not compatible with HW4.0 ”. It’s had this disclaimer for months.

    Media App Gone since last software update

    The 2024 model y usb-c are for recharging devices only. They can not handle data. You’ll need a device like this plugged in to your glovebox usb-a port or search the forum on how to hook up larger storage device to glovebox & setup that device to handle music & dashcam. https://a.co/d/01BzYkiw

    Media App Gone since last software update

    It seems you have a model Y which is a 2024. I saw another thread where you wrote that you just bought a model y. Model years 2022 & newerdo not have center console usb ports which can support data operations. This means you can’t playback music on a usb device or use game controllers which are...

    @diamondkidult , tips. 1) when using FSD click the right steering wheel button left or right and a menu appears on s deem which lets you set FSD to chill, average or assertive driving style. You can read about those settings. There is also a button you can press so FSD doesn’t perform as many...

    Second summer with solar and it feels great

    Just a reminder. Electricity rates in California are much higher in areas that rely upon private utilities such as SoCal Edison & PG&E. Many cities in California operate their own power station’s & infrastructure and those areas tend to have lower rates. Examples, City Of Los Angeles, Burbank...

    2020 MY - TeslaCam Dashcam - USB no longer recognized

    Sentry mode consumes a lot of energy. Just saying this in case there are new Tesla owners reading this thread. You say you might not remember to run the Tesla app. This plan can help you. I did the below. Make an iPhone (I believe Android has a similar system) shortcut via shortcuts app (made...

    Moving from my CarPlay car to new Model 3

    Another benefit of CarPlay, it can use the media saved on my phone’s local storage or try to stream media via cellular. Tesla’s apps can only stream data from cellular. I’m often in areas with no cellular connection so I can’t listen to Apple Music or podcasts when using tesla eco system...

    Moving from my CarPlay car to new Model 3

    Carplay in my tesla center screen is an awesome enhancement and coexists without issue with my Tesla ecosystem. When text messages come in I hear the notification via Tesla speakers and can say “hey siri, read my messages”. I am able to reply via voice. Siri reads back my message and allows any...

    Dashcam unavailable check usb drive

    Issue of computer not detecting devices connected to Tesla computer center usb port seems to affect hardware 3 cars with intel atom cpu. Minority of hw3 owners have amd ryzen cpu. In hw 3 setup the glovebox usb port (older cars lack glovebox sub) is detecting devices, so many owners don’t...

    This trick seems to help many model y owners who lack glovebox usb-a and have the same issue of the computer not noticing the center usb data port upon waking from deep sleep. Before opening the doors, try waking your vehicle each time using Tesla mobile app. Wait for full connection to happen...

    Remove rear trunk trim

    Do you mean the trim kinda pushes inwards where it meets the side floor trim near passenger seat cushion? I have this issue after trying to put the trim on again. Haven’t figured out a fix.

    2020 MY - TeslaCam Dashcam - USB no longer recognized

    No it is software issue. All our center ports data device detection got wonky around 12/2023 - 02/2024 since software updates are rolled out slowly across the fleet. A work around is mentioned in this posting. Post in thread '2020 MY - TeslaCam Dashcam - USB no longer recognized' 2020 MY -...

    Unreliable [music] USB mounting on startup after sleep?

    A hack to ensure devices connected to center usb console ports are detected is to use the tesla mobile phone app to wake the car before you open the door handle. Open the app and wait for it to fully connect to the car. You can do this 10 minutes before heading out to car. Some people recommend...

    Intermittent Electrical Problem Tesla Can't Fix, 5 Months Left on Warranty

    On another thread someone had their computer replaced, it did not help. Our usb ports functioned fine until around 1/2024. It is a software issue and not hardware. Pretty much everyone I talk to is getting an usb device error alert once per day when car wakes first time for the day even if they...

    Intermittent loss of USB stick icon and playback/security until reboot

    Yup The trick of waking the car via mobile app to make car detect center usb ports for data operations works for me too. I made an iPhone shortcut automation to make the mobile app flash my car lights every morning about 10 minutes before the time I usually get in my car. Another workaround...

    UI_a112 - USB device malfunction - I/O Error

    @diamonddave64 , it’s software issue most likely. Did you try the trick of waking your car via Tesla mobilebphone app & preconditioning cabin to desired temp before opening the doors? If that works then you can adjust your arbitration claim to be more correct. The two people I know of who had...

    2020 MY - TeslaCam Dashcam - USB no longer recognized

    You don’t need to turn on sentry mode 24/7 unless you want to waste a lot of energy. Start simple and before you get in your car, use the Tesla app to unlock the doors before you get too close to the car.

    New MYP tire squeak

    Issue vanished for me when I switched to 19” hankook evo ion suv tires and wheels from oem 21”. I asked the tire shop to remove manufacturers sticker from 21” but they forgot. Will ask them to remove the labels when putting 21” on again….if I ever do. The 19” bring a bit of comfort and more...

    2023 MYP suspension questions

    if you are not a car person, I’d do this. 1) Switch from 21” wheels to 19” and get Hankook Evo ion suv tires (I did this). Benefits, about 30 miles more range (it’s physics/science stuff) a bit more comfy ride due to tire having sidewalk , less road rumble & feeling every gravel in road due to...

    2020 MY - TeslaCam Dashcam - USB no longer recognized

    Personally I didn’t have issues with my glovebox usb-a port nor my Tesla OEM USB dashcam stick which is a Samsung Bar Plus, a very sturdily built for extreme heat/cold, airport x-rays & lots of data writes . It has a 5 year warranty if not bought from Tesla. Best of all, they are relatively...

    2020 MY - TeslaCam Dashcam - USB no longer recognized

    Yup. I just made a daily 7AM automation on my iphone (via shortcuts app) which uses Tesla app to set my preferred temp. If that doesn’t wake the car from deep sleep running preconditioning would & some other options. My test will be seeing if my music usb-c stick is recognized when plugged in...

    2020 MY - TeslaCam Dashcam - USB no longer recognized

    Or….you could save a lot of wasted energy & money over time and let the car deep sleep overnight. Sentry mode consumes a good deal of watts. Then use the Tesla mobile app from your phone when you wake up in the morning so car detects all plugged in usb devices and not just the glovebox. The...

    Media App Gone since last software update

    Known issue since 1/2024 for many of us with data capable center console usb-c ports. Including my car. Here is a fix, kinda. Have your usb device plugged in to the usb-c port. Let the car sleep, it has to be turned off for many hours. Before opening the car door manually, use Tesla mobile app...

    2020 MY - TeslaCam Dashcam - USB no longer recognized

    If you use the Tesla mobile app to wake car via unlocking doors or climate actions, etc before physically opening the door then the center console usb ports will detect the devices plugged in to them.

    Ah interesting. This is first time I hear that an AMD Ryzen based hardware 4 infotainment computer is affected. Previously only older intel atom hardware 3 computer had the issue. Also of note, your center usb-c ports have no data abilities , only power. Just info in case you thinks they are...

    UI_a112 - USB device malfunction - I/O Error

    Here is what has been making my center usb ports detect devices. My glovebox usb-a has been working fine. I typically get 1 UI_a112 error per day. Vehicle software 2024.14.9 . 1) before manually opening the car door, use Tesla mobile app to wake the car by unlocking door via app & I turn on...

    Bluetooth constantly disconnecting and reconnecting

    Make sure your phone entry in Tesla car is set to priority device. Also in phone, make sure no other device is connecting to Bluetooth such as a nearby car you own which your phone is setup to use . maybe Bluetooth headphone are connecting to phone and set to be primary?

    Self Driving Observation

I’ll probably rent it every few months as my current car is not my forever car. I bet the unexplained rapid...

    UI_a112 - USB device malfunction - I/O Error

    I believe have seen people with older model 3 which lack glovebox usb port (so they claim) have the issue in their center console usb-a ports. Basically they have no way to have functional dashcam feature & sentry mode…nor usb music. Personally my 2022 model y with Tesla OEM usb-c module which...

    Model 3 2021 not recognising music from USB-C stick

    Non usb-c data capable ports happened in cars built around 12/2021. First Tesla used a non data capable usb hub but left data cable. Then they removed 1/2 the data cable, it was two connected cables if I recall correctly. Then they removed the second half. When Ryzen mcu3 computer came out it...

    Soundskins Cabin Noise Dampening Kit

    Found a place near me in downtown Los Angeles which says they’ve installed soundskin kits on about 60 teslas so far. $600 for the install (prices change all the time) & said it was a one day job requiring two installers working together. Probably will try them out.
