    2021 vs 2024 Model S

    What kind of 2021 is it? The refreshed one, or the last run of the old generation? I really wish Tesla hadn't rolled over the year until Palladium production had started, none of the older 2021's were even produced in 2021. If it's the old one with a vertical screen, definitely go with the...

    Driver's door won't close... have to wait 2 weeks for service!

    Interesting, maybe the behavior has changed with Palladium? I had a door handle sensor issue with my 2018 Model S where it immediately popped back open and I was able to lock it while the door was still open. Doing that prevented it until service was able to replace the handle. The "lock" on...

    Driver's door won't close... have to wait 2 weeks for service!

    Get in the car, press the lock button on the screen, then close the door This should prevent the door from popping out and make the car drivable until it is fixed

    Transferable FSD available for S/X/3/Y: Jun 24 - Aug 31, 2024 - One last time?

    IDK how it is still hard to offer FSD transfers The first time they did it, it started as a very manual process By the end of that they had automated it, it's done by the user via the app.

    Trade with an LR owner I really don't like having wood in my car. Thinking about upgrading to the Plaid, not having wood is a nice bonus to the acceleration.

    The new headlights and taillights didn't even show in the car immediately. It took a few months at least, I remember there was an update that finally started showing the global taillights in the visualization, well after I got my car.

    The integrated GPU (on the CPU) is used to run the UI, the dedicated GPU is only used for the Steam functionality. Not worth having some special UI that requires the dGPU in S/X.

    I've been wondering what would the software do if you were to plug a camera into the front camera port that exists on HW4 and set the configuration to enabled on it. The OS must support it since the Cybertruck has one, but maybe that hasn't been merged into the build for other vehicles, and...

    You really shouldn't be driving a Model S or even any big battery EV if you believe the situation is this dire. The extra performance in the Model S contributes to the emissions. The extra materials required to make a Model S contribute. What are you doing??

    Are you sure? Seems like it's for towing.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Towing is an interesting one. The parts catalog has a tow hitch for NA listed, and the service manual has retrofit instructions and includes instructions specifically for NA. I wonder if you can request to get a hitch installed form the service center.

    Too bad, his solution looked great. Unfortunately his only posts on X lately are just Tesla bashing constantly.

    Interestingly, this has now been the longest time between Model S revisions https://service.tesla.com/docs/ModelS/Circuit_Reference/ https://service.tesla.com/docs/ModelS/ElectricalReference/ It has been almost 16 months since the last revision (SOP16)

    Take out HV batt pack / cut out bad cell? (S P85+)

    How is it that people are able to take modules from these older S/X packs and do EV conversions with them? Are they always using modules from the same donor pack? Are these systems unsafe due to the mismatch? Do they have a better way to balance than what is built into the Tesla pack? Is the...

    Slight chance that improves things. They seem to know exactly what causes the issue and in over 2 years they haven't fixed it. You'd think a slight component redesign to make it a little tighter or the latch a little more springy is all that's necessary. That's what it the latch issue sounds...

    Why refuse to tape it? Takes a few minutes and fixes the issue. I had to remove and re-apply tape after a year. Not ideal, but better than dealing with the constant creaking.

    There's no reason for either of those things to have to wait for a significant refersh. The design and wiring for those features has been nearly complete since launch. There is even precedent in China of adding RGB to the existing Model Y (dashboard only). Who knows what's holding it up, maybe...

    How well does phone key work compared to the old key fob?

    You don't need to wait for the app to connect before pressing a button. That loading is for the internet-based connection to get the car's status but if you are within Bluetooth range the commands will work over Bluetooth immediately. If your app isn't connecting over Bluetooth and must send...

    Did we ever figure out what happened with those? I don't recall anyone saying they were delivered a car that was half a year old. I remember while they were there gathering dust, new ones were rolling off the line and being delivered.

    EPA rating on the Palladium LR with 19" wheels appears to be 238 wh/mi according to Teslamate. That makes sense with 405 miles corresponding to 96.4kWh usable. I was able to achieve that this summer when driving on small highways going about 55mph. My old 2018 P100D with 19" wheels had 310...

    USS was removed in early 2023. You can find some early 2023 VINs (manufactured late 2022) that are the second version of Palladium (SOP15 with new lights, HW3, with USS, without radar). According to this page https://service.tesla.com/docs/ModelS/Circuit_Reference/Palladium/ SOP16 started...

    Is Elon harming the future of Tesla?

    Spaceship man bad. He must be happy that the competition mostly sucks. Cybertruck competition doesn't though.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I think people are mainly concerned if there was an actual change to the cars other than the EPA rating. Tesla did reduce the pack size going from Raven to Palladium by a small amount, and we're concerned they reduced it yet again. A 35 mile reduction for the Plaid isn't insignificant.

    I have no idea, but the exception mentioned earlier could very well be it. LR could still be using the old rating, while the Plaid got a new rating possibly due to the new sport seats that were leaked a couple months ago.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I don't think so. Both LR and Plaid have a mode that the manual says conditions the battery (Insane and Plaid), although no one seems to notice any actual efficiency difference using this mode. I leave my car in Insane at all times and it doesn't appear to be doing anything over Sport for...

    So the Plaid got significant changes but the LR did not? I guess if the Plaid is getting those new sport seats that could have triggered the new range test. But the LR did get a new higher range on the 21".

    This is weird. Acceleration mode should have no impact on the EPA cycle. Will the ride height impact be severe? Worst case scenario for ride height is disabling auto lowering and setting it to high, but at highway speeds it still automatically forces it down to normal. Could that really account...

    Maybe it's fast on cars where the previous owner has released ownership, and manual on cars where the previous owner has not done so.

    Looks like Tesla brought back the standard range Model S and X!

    The Palladium isn't compatible with the old style batteries which those 90kWh batteries are.

    Model S/X minor refresh coming soon?

    The matrix headlights on the S are a massive improvement over the old reflectors even if none of the matrix functionality is being utilized. The old lights were so terrible.

    TIL: Plaid acceleration mode continually conditions battery and affects HVAC?

    The refresh doesn't have Insane+, it has drag strip mode which is basically the same thing. Yes that uses a lot of energy.

    Hmm I wonder if that's true. I leave mine in Insane mode and it's very efficient.

    The issue with the brakes is when you are using them repeatedly. A single use should be able to stop the car fine.

    How well does phone key work compared to the old key fob?

    It's not as reliable or as accurate, but the convenience of not carrying a fob is worth it for me. My new S auto-presenting handles only auto-present about half the time with my phone key but my old S worked >99% of the time. Just pressing the handle wakes it up and presents them though.

    This has happened multiple times already why would you expect any difference? Especially knowing the price increases were due to supply and demand mismatch.

    does refreshed model S come with ultra sonic sensor?

    HW3 cars built in 2021-2022 have USS, HW4 lose the USS and get better cameras and radar. I don't think they'll work as well as USS at the front of the car because they still haven't added a fascia camera so there is a large blind spot.

    HW4 and Center Horn on 2023 Model S?

    Brain dead Model S in cold region

    This sounds like a bug I had in ~2021 with my 2018 P100D. The bug lasted about a year before a subsequent update fixed it. I also started lowering the charge threshold so it wouldn't do that. Big waste of energy. It would wake up constantly when it barely lost any energy to top off. It hadn't...
