    Decode battery help

    Yes, correct. Uncorking as we discuss here I think is limited to AWD or MS D versions. Those RWD built after July 2018 were factory uncorked.

    Decode battery help

    N Not exactly, but I was told by SC that several important components including some wirings are different between the older models and those built after July. I used to have an MS pre-Jul 17 and had to trade in to get the latest as they said they could not upgrade.

    Decode battery help

    If your car was built before July 2017, then I am afraid it cannot be uncorcked. It is not the new drive unit only that improves the performance. There are a few other parts that should be present to have such acceleration, performance and torque.

    Decode battery help

    This is not accurate. I have a S75 RWD built Oct 2017 and it is with the new drive unit and already uncorcked. I have run several test and I even registered 0 to 60 mph at 4.1 S. All RWD Model S built from July 2017 until end of RWD have the same acceleration.

    Blog Tesla Enables Speed Limits Through Mobile App

    How about acceleration? What is acceleration range? Apparently it only works with firmware 2018.24 (and later) mine is still 2018.21! So even though the app is updated I cannot access the feature for now!

    A very good idea. You have my support :) And yes it happened here in Switzerland :) and worst of all, happened to me!

    Someone unplugged my car

    It happened to me with a destination charger. A model S next to me had disconnect mine after charging was done but I don’t know how. I have been trying it myself more than 20 times but only once I managed to remove it other times it is locked. Go back in this thread as well as other thread under...

    Someone unplugged my car

    I think this still is the case. We do share and help each other. I am just coming back from a short trip to lake Maggiore in northern Italy and I accidentally met another nice local Tesla owner and when I asked him about a nearby place to charge my car, he kindly offered me to use the industrial...

    Someone unplugged my car

    Why not? I have been in many restaurants without booking and they said I can only have 30 or 50 minutes because I don’t have booking and all tables are booked. In fac it is better solution for busy stations Maybe for bigger or less trafficked Sc location it is not necessary but for a very busy...

    Someone unplugged my car

    But the stupid guy you referred to, evidences show he was either committing suicide or had a stroke or heart attack as he ignored all signals autopilot gave him. Re the app you mentioned, I would love to see it. Perhaps the developer didn’t know how to market it otherwise it can be very...

    I think you read my comment incorrectly. You are right in saying education will not resolve stupidity but I wasn’t reffing to those stupid unpluggers!! I was talking about sophisticated, handsome/beautiful, educated, intelligent Tesla owners who can learn a few code of conducts and rules among...

    Someone unplugged my car

    Yes I agree with you totally. But where is the fun part? It is good to stimulate people’s mind and brain to figure out how to contact me. Also stalkers are not rare. I just read on the news that a woman sent 65,000 SMS to a guy after their first date! Now imagine someone handsome, rich and...

    :D Very true! Typed using a UK keyboard didn’t bother to go and find how to get “accent” but the missing “n” how did that happen!!! :mad: ;):):D

    Someone unplugged my car

    Yes but you expose your personal info to anyone passing by! No need to have a scanner app. All new Iphone and Android models have the scanner built in. You just need to point your camera to the code (same was you take a picture) it recognises it and takes action by taking you to SMS messaging...

    Someone unplugged my car

    Dear Graffi Thank you very much for the kind words. I fully understand and agree with you. In my view, The forum is a good place to exchange ideas and experiences we have with our cars. There might be different issues with the software, firmware or even hardware of the car which might trigger...

    Someone unplugged my car

    No need for any apology. I said that no offence was taken. In fact it was funny and I appreciated your humour! Some said it is a mechanism of wall connector to unlock after charging is complated. But I can never remove the charger from my wall connector even when charging is completed. It only...

    Someone unplugged my car

    This is what I thought and as I explained Tesla ranger experienced it at my place and I also reported to them the issue again but they have no clue where to look at! Everything seems to be just fine with the car as it locks the charge port while charging and also when the charging is...

    Someone unplugged my car

    @scaesare thanks for the message. Are you suggesting I am making this up to blame Tesla or you suggest I am so stupid that I don’t understand difference between a locked car and unlocked one? Either way no offence was taken. The key fob was at my apartment far away from car park and no, my car...

    Someone unplugged my car

    Not correct. My Tesla was unplugged from a Tesla destination charger while the car was locked a few weeks ago. I reported to Tesla but so far no answer and no explanation. There is an issue with either locking mechanism or wall connector. Sometimes it is completely locked and no way to...

    Tesla wall connector issue

    After few experience of my Tesla being able unplugged by other people, I decided to make a notice and put on the car while charging and politely ask them to contact me if they need the charger. It is in 4 languages and for privacy reasons, instead of putting my telephone number I used QR code...

    Tesla wall connector issue

    Hello everyone I encountered the problem again today. I made a short film so you can see how it works. I did not have the key fob with me and the car was locked! Please have a look and note the ring around the charger is off. Anyone having wall connector please check if you do have the same...

    Homelink issue: Auto open and close stopped working

    @milleron I am not sure how you have setup your Home link but it is worth recalibrating it. Basically take your car in front of the garage door from outside (not inside the garage) and try to reset the location. The distance from where the home link triggers the signal is adjustable from...

    Hepa Filter Biodefense Model Upgrade and Option Code

    @richrootes by the way I forgot to mention that I got the Tesla invoice this evening on my email for the service they provided. So all done correctly.

    Hepa Filter Biodefense Model Upgrade and Option Code

    @boaterva Yes, Obviously the car was reboot and restarted when the option was unlocked or turned on on the car. The button works perfectly fine. The car was also rebooted after the latest upgrade 2018.16 but the option is still showing normal filter.

    Hepa Filter Biodefense Model Upgrade and Option Code

    Oh. No.. I originally contacted SC and asked them for the upgrade but as the Ranger was coming to do some adjustment on one of the door handles, he also kindly installed the part. By the way I think we got distracted and my question still remains unanswered that if the options is unlocked why...

    Hepa Filter Biodefense Model Upgrade and Option Code

    @richrootes Agree but that package also had other things such as sound system etc... After all this is just a higher quality filter and as far as I can see, all the new button in the display does (by the way the logo is scary!) is to increase the fan speed to maximum to create a positive...

    Hepa Filter Biodefense Model Upgrade and Option Code

    @richrootes I hope not. I asked the service centre and not the Ranger. The Ranger only installed it. He was extremely nice and helpful. I don't see any reason why anyone cannot order the part. There are many videos on the youtube and internet showing people changing their own filter with the...

    Hepa Filter Biodefense Model Upgrade and Option Code

    @Bebop Yes, exactly! Please bear in mind that I live in Switzerland and there might be different procedure here. I heard they were offering the same in the states but it was discontinued recently.

    @DKPowers Sorry forgot to mention that I thought the option codes can change when the software is updated.

    Tesla wall connector issue

    @harry Nothing wrong with it as long as the software and hardware allows it. But this option is still not available plus the fact that in shared garages like for example where I live, we have our communal garage and if this is open for anyone to use it then people can start using your wall...

    Hepa Filter Biodefense Model Upgrade and Option Code

    @DKPowers Yes, I asked them and they only charged me for part which was about 180 USD plus another 50 USD miscellaneous. The Ranger was extremely nice guy.

    Tesla wall connector issue

    I really appreciate it if the guy who disconnected my Model S and connected the charger to his own Model S in Car Park Central (Flon) (Lausanne, Switzerland) last Saturday around 6 pm to contact me here. No hard feeling at all but everybody is just surprised. A Ranger from Tesla Switzerland...

    Tesla wall connector issue

    @Kristoffer Helle Well please let me add to the problem by reporting that my car since yesterday locks the charger when the door is locked. No way to detach it! What this guy did to my car to disconnect the charger, I have not idea!!!!

    Tesla wall connector issue

    @Kristoffer Helle Thanks but this was not the case before and all friends above confirm they cannot disconnect the charger from a locked car. So I am still confused about what is happening!

    Tesla wall connector issue

    Thanks for all feedbacks. My fob was with me and car surely locked. My home Tesla charger also used to lock the charger and it still does during charging but after charging completed (to my usual 90%) and the led ring around the port goes off, it does unlock the charger with the push of the...

    Tesla wall connector issue

    Hi I was out over the weekend and parked my car in a car park with Tesla destination charger. I plugged in the charger and left for a couple of hours. About 10 minutes before returning to the car, got the message on the phone that the charging was completed. When I got back to the car, in my...

    Software Update 2018.14

    Well, I got this problem after last update 2018.12 and reported here in a thread about Regn brake. It definitely is less responsive than before. With a steep downhill near my home, I have to descend everyday to get to the main road, I used to control the speed of the car easily by not applying...

    Homelink issue: Auto open and close stopped working

    Hi, I encountered the same problem with my MS after it was working perfectly for several months. When I did the last update (18.10.4) my car behaviour changed and a few things are not as before. First the auto-open on homelink stopped working. I tried to reset the system and it started working...

    Regenerative Braking Behavior Poll

    The issue is without applying on acceleration pedal, on the downhill the car builds up speed and this was not the case before and it is not the case on the highway and high speed. Before the update on a downhill I had almost full -50 indication on the display and car was going down at a steady...

    Regenerative Braking Behavior Poll

    @RAW84 and @RogerHScott: The setting is on “standard” and not “low”. Everything else same as before update. I never fully charge the battery and the car is always preheated. Same route, same slope, everything the same but regen brakes less responsive and steep slope. I am puzzled!

    Regenerative Braking Behavior Poll

    Hi everybody I am not sure if this is relevant to this thread but since the latest upgrade 10.4, my regenerative brakes are less responsive than before in lower speed. There is a relatively steep slope near my home which I have to use everyday to get to the main road. Before the latest update...
