    Upper Control Arm Sealing DIY?

    This greasing of the internal ball itself is extremely DIY in most cases when squeaking. There is a metal coil holding the rubber boot closed and to the housing. Get a hook tool to uncoil and drop the spring a bit, get a good syringe and inject a bunch of grease in there. DO NOT USE WD-40...

    Powerwall 2+ "incompatible" with existing powerwall 2

    Adding 4 more kw to the roof and one new pw+ to my 2 pws, and the advisor said it had to swap to normal pw2 since it was incompatible. Not only did my buddy who is a Tesla energy installer call BS, but even the sales people said it was compatible. As an EE, id never jump to conclusions on a...

    Fixing service center routing optimization issues.

    1. Don't have me drop my damn car off unless the part has actually arrived. 2. Don't schedule my drop off until you are within a day (or couple hours) of being ready to actually start the work. 3. Don't keep legally drivable cars more than 1 day unless something catastrophic is discovered or...

    New power wall 2 install - Internet connection?

    Lol I only posted in case someone else needed it. So far so good!

    New power wall 2 install - Internet connection?

    The wifi works great, but make sure it is using the lowest frequency possible as the signal needs to travel through lots of layers of building materials depending on house size. It may only support 2.4ghz, which should be fine. I notice when it rains, the bricks my gateway is attached to...

    Rear defrost strips falling off window after 17 mos. Tesla wants $820.

    Trending on that subReddit is not a problem at all. So many people added the correct info and demolished the anti-Tesla sentiment there, it is already pissing off their various echo chamber moderators - which is awesome! This window issue is an exceedingly rare one. One guy even rightly showed...

    Rear defroster ribbon cable broke

    Lets hope they continue to recycle these (or better yet, refurbish it) like they do with most of their RMA's materials.

    The End of my MY Story (at least for now)

    I good on ya for not accepting this! I cancelled both my Y orders due to the myriad quality issues Tesla thinks they are going to get away with. Not this time. I was happy to receive my perf 3 falwlessly without issues (except tear spoiler not being ready yet, which was all good) but not...

    What do you think the “Rectifications” are costing Tesla?

    Thankfully my first 3 was pretty flawless, sans a few minor issues remote rangers took care of. When I pick up my Y in a week, it will get absolutely rejected if it doesn't hit the mark for BASIC stuff like paint and panels to the level of every other car I have purchased (to be fair to Tesla)...

    2020.16 update

    This is normal. Tesla does not publish details on bug fixes in notes usually. The more decimals you see, the smaller the update and the lower liklihood of a new note amendment. Usually new notes (and major features) are in XX.X releases. XX.X.X.X will generally not

    That is absolutely phenomenal! Previously, it did indeed show the cones upright and in the correct location when knocked over. Does it point in the right direction as well?

    1200 bucks for 19 horsepower increase on Mustangs.

    2020.12.5.6: Traffic Light & Stop Sign Control

    Great post. Another interesting thing I found was that if I was going over a flyover (short bridge/overpass over train tracks), where a stopsign exists on a parallel street below, it thought there was stopsign up top. This is presumably due to the fact that technically the 2D gps location shows...

    Forbes biased article again proves misunderstanding of how Tesla’s betas work.

    If you have ever used traffic aware cruise control on any car, and have not crashed due to understanding its limitations, you are not part of the groups of morons who abuse the systems by sitting on their hoods and hanging outside the doors etc. Why on earth would this article not once mention...

    Forbes biased article again proves misunderstanding of how Tesla’s betas work.

    Agreed about the common sense (read "basic/default sense") is lacking in people. The system is naggy now while developing and learning, and eventually will not prompt when a customer is in the car. The way they implemented it here is actually very good and errs on the side of absolute caution -...

    Forbes biased article again proves misunderstanding of how Tesla’s betas work.

    There aren't enough zero's in the universe that I can type to portray how much I agree on this point, so I will stop at 100% agreement. The authors ignorance is absolutely glaring and shows he is still massively tied to the old world and methods of doing this. If humans don't need HD maps...

    Forbes biased article again proves misunderstanding of how Tesla’s betas work.

    I have been using this feature since release, and it has never once slammed on it's brakes, even for last second red lights. It gives a 600 foot warning, then at around 200 feet starts slowing down, then comes to a soft stop (albeit not as smoothly as I would personally do it, but not jerky at...

    Forbes biased article again proves misunderstanding of how Tesla’s betas work.

    This exactly illustrates my point to a sharp T. The article basically has this underlying negative tone to it that is as loud as the authors lack of experience. The numbers and stats not only show autopilot to be very safe, but well-tested and vetted, while continually improving. Also, this...

    Forbes biased article again proves misunderstanding of how Tesla’s betas work.

    My overall contention is the fact that the feature being released adds protections to the car, it doesn’t take them away. Before the update, the car (and all others with cruise control) would allow it drive right through stop signs and traffic lights, and now will slow to a stop at them by...

    Forbes biased article again proves misunderstanding of how Tesla’s betas work.

    To some extent I agree that there is some risk that someone may enable the feature then go out and fall asleep while the car goes out on the roads. But realistically, no one in their right mind is going to test out a beta feature that drives this roughly without their foot hovering over the...

    Forbes biased article again proves misunderstanding of how Tesla’s betas work.

    Specifically the following are what I point to. “Any manufacturer of any product that pushes out a safety critical feature that is not fully developed, tested and validated is guilty of negligence” It’s not negligence to release this feature unless it is released on-by-default, and without a...

    Forbes biased article again proves misunderstanding of how Tesla’s betas work.

    This article by Forbes completely misses the point of how autopilot development works and essentially ignores the fact that other cars don’t even attempt red light stops or allow users to opt in to testing the feature.

    P100D ludicrous+ loses to Model 3?? What the??

    Don’t forget that the model 3 perf is now a 3 second car after the latest 11% power increase (over 2 updates). 3.2 was the original spec. Also, what was your charge percentage?

    MASTER THREAD: 2019.36.2.3 and .4 [nothing new in release notes In comparison to prior version]

    This is actually how the car measures available charge power so it knows how much power to pull and for how long. Once it knows, it will calc what time to start the charge in advance and hit the range+cabin heat usage target. After a day it should normalize.

    Wheel Wells & sound deadening

    A db meter us good, but one that measures frequencies that get throughout the car is better. The foam in the tires will filter high frequency noise better than loud lower freq noises.

    Does AP use regen?

    Yep, it uses regen when slowing and balancing stopping power. Depending on wether the stoping speed senses enough regen capacity is available to stop within its (rather over sensitive) stopping/slowing distance, it will mix in calipers as needed. It will use slightly more physical breaking than...

    Powerwall and solar acting very sporadic in full sun - no charging

    Got an update from Tesla. They said that the Powerwall “brain” Was not “communicating” with the inverter, so put itself into protection mode since it couldn’t sense grid phase or inverter status. If it happens again, they will send someone out. Just had another storm so will see once morning...

    Powerwall and solar acting very sporadic in full sun - no charging

    We have ours set to "Self Powered" mode so it makes sense that it powers everything during the night (but I agree with the time shifting/time-based mode not doing so). Initially when the system was just dropping out and not charging at all, I first assumed it was warming the battery or...

    Powerwall and solar acting very sporadic in full sun - no charging

    The interesting thing about this is that we didn’t have any outages. The choppy graph issues didn’t occur until well after the rain ended, and no shutdown had to happen.

    Set charge rate remotely

    It would be great to be able to set charge rate,charge start/end times and integrate better with Powerwall software (remotely for charge rate limit instead of just on-screen charge capacity limits) For Powerwall integration, if I am plugged in, the Tesla should charge automatically if the...

    Powerwall and solar acting very sporadic in full sun - no charging

    For sure. I noticed it was reading the grid connection and not showing the “updated x minutes ago” message when the app can’t connect, so the network was definitely good. My nagios server also showed nothing was down to the wan nor to the Powerwall gateways. Tesla said 1-4 business days they...

    Powerwall and solar acting very sporadic in full sun - no charging

    It’s usually kept at 5% for backups so drains to then. This weeks I kept it to roughly 20% since weather may have gotten worse. The whole day it only charged +2% when it’s at 100% by 3:30-4:00 ish. after the sw update it reliably charges now like normal, but the weird gaps are always just...

    Powerwall and solar acting very sporadic in full sun - no charging

    After a rather normal rain storm (batteries in garage, only solar inverter outside) the next morning the powewrwall was not charging when it normally does. During the first few hours, my 10.4 kwh system would spike to 10+kw (nowhere near solar peak time), then drop off completely. The app...
