    Software update - frozen

    At least in the US, when I’ve made an appointment in the Software category and asked for a re-push in the notes, it always came a couple of hours later even if the appointment date was days away.

    New Service Centers Coming To The Northeast!

    Sorta. Anything up to Rutland gets the guy out of Hartford, CT who comes one day a week and covers a lot of ground, so mobile availability for the southern half of the state is very limited. The northern half has their own mobile service base and the situation is much better there. At least this...

    Weird noise fron rear left wheel, bad wheel bearing??

    My car has successfully cupped three separate sets of tires (MXM4s, Sottozero 3s, and CrossClimate+) over 55k miles. I've had it aligned by several different service centers a bunch of times, had the suspension checked over, tires rebalanced, and etc. In the end I just got used to the...

    Got into an accident...

    Tesla does have to balance enforcing the requirements with having enough certified shops to actually handle repairs too, so they're probably not religiously strict about these standards. But overall, based on conversations with a certified body shop owner - yes, they do keep track and will issue...

    Supercharger - Fairfield, CT

    Same as with any property damage, I'd imagine - initially can be either (if the injured party has an appropriate coverage in place, they can typically file with either their carrier or directly with the responsible party's carrier). But ultimately the claim will get subrogated to the insurance...

    Got into an accident...

    Per the Tesla body shop standards doc, body shops are required to place no more than 2 parts orders per vehicle to maintain certified status; one initial order and one with additional parts once the teardown is complete. So chances are this is going to be it for you, although my repair ended up...

    Wonder why 2021.4.21.3 is going out

    Multiple branches being active at the same time is not really that unusual, especially during periods of heavy backcoding like the one we've been in since early 2021. It looks like cars that got 2021.4.18.11 are the only ones receiving 2021.4.21.3, so a pattern is emerging. Last time around...

    Supercharger - Fairfield, CT

    I noticed a new cabinet that was unloaded and waiting for installation when I drove by on 7/25

    Supercharger - Hamden, CT - Dixwell Avenue

    My first time stopping here and I saw 251 kW hold for a good five minutes. Tesla nav is listing four stalls as out of order, but it doesn’t look like there’s a specific bank out as there were cars charging on all three groups.

    Supercharger - Cheektowaga, NY

    I’ve owned my car for over 2 years and have driven it for over 60k miles, so I’m quite familiar with preconditioning :) No, I’ve seen the full 250 kW rates at single digits SoC.

    2019 3D+ ambient temperature reading 102F while it's 30F outside

    Final (hopefully) update: the SC installed an overlay harness from X901F to X527 ("last mile" of the circuit between the front body controller and the ambient temp sensor) and replaced the sensor itself once again. So far everything is back to normal, so this was an electric connectivity issue...

    Supercharger - Williston, VT

    It’s been a few years since I lived in the area, but from what I remember, getting past the first light off of 89 was a royal pain in the rear even before all of the apartment complexes sprung up. Given that this location is next to the new Healthy Living, I feel like it will be quite...

    To add to this, Tesla does not allow any frame geometry work at all, so if there's any shift to that, then it's a total.

    New Service Centers Coming To The Northeast!

    I lived in Grand Isle for a while. It's either mobile service or taking a trip down to Boston for anything mobile can't do (which is a decent amount, anything that requires lifting, most suspension work, a lot of electric work that requires disconnecting the battery and anything that requires...

    2019 3D+ ambient temperature reading 102F while it's 30F outside

    Just received an estimate for the upcoming appointment at Deadham. Full heater replacement (likely not going to be needed, heater works except for when the ambient temperature readings are too high for it to do anything) and, interestingly, SB-20-17-010 (check circuits at X-950 and X-952)...

    Brake replacement already?

    For comparison, USD 68.25 at Deadham this week for non-performance brake service.

    2019 3D+ ambient temperature reading 102F while it's 30F outside

    Just another update for posterity. 1. I had the ambient temperature sensor replaced by mobile. It didn’t help, the ambient temp racing to high values returned shortly after the replacement. So it’s not the sensor itself. 2. I removed the number and cleaned the front wiring harness best I could...

    B-pillar cameras fogging up?

    I actually tried applying a little bit of a scuba mask anti-fog compound to the parts of the inner surface of the appliqué glass that I could reach through the opening. I wasn’t very successful and the effect didn’t last.

    Supercharger - Williston, VT

    I have invoices from there from as early as 2018, it used to be by the minute then. So can’t be that new. I used to live about 20 minutes from Burlington.

    I don't believe that's the case - unless it's new. I've been charged at the Healthy Living supercharger before, here's an example:

    2019 3D+ ambient temperature reading 102F while it's 30F outside

    One of the common ways to refer to a model 3 long range all wheel drive with an acceleration boost, no?

    2019 3D+ ambient temperature reading 102F while it's 30F outside

    Another update: mobile finally made it out and replaced the ambient temperature sensor. Now it's reading 30 degrees lower than the actual temperature. They asked I give it a few days and then request another appointment if it does not normalize.

    Mobile app: can't read message from service after cancelled appointment

    Haha we've been hoping for that for years, yet so far things have been moving the other way. I used to tell myself that I just need to give Tesla a bit more time to figure out the teething problems. Now I am not sure there's any will to actually solve them. Focus seems to be exclusively on cost...

    Mobile app: can't read message from service after cancelled appointment

    Posting this for visibility more than anything else: the new in-app service messaging system is great, but it has a functionality gap: when a service appointment gets cancelled or rescheduled without a firm date date and the service team sends an in-app message, there's nowhere to read it...

    2019 3D+ ambient temperature reading 102F while it's 30F outside

    Just an update that I’ve since had a few instances of blank readings, the issue comes back on and off. Mobile is coming at the end of the month, no estimate yet so don’t know what their plan is.

    2019 3D+ ambient temperature reading 102F while it's 30F outside

    Unfortunately, the problem recurred last night. After the car fell asleep, I got in and watched the ambient temperature reading immediately start climbing again, all the way to a balmy 96 degrees after some 3 minutes. It is, of course, not anywhere near 96F in New HYampshire right now. The odd...

    2019 3D+ ambient temperature reading 102F while it's 30F outside

    I *think* redeploying the firmware fixed this. I just went for a 10 minute drive and the ambient temp only climbed by 1 degree. I'll be able to do a better test later today, but - hopefully - this was it. Thanks again, @bbell - I owe you one.

    2019 3D+ ambient temperature reading 102F while it's 30F outside

    Thanks, this is very helpful - the description fits. This is why I did ask for a firmware redeploy in the appointment request. Hopefully someone reads it soon and pushes out the current firmware to me. I do some QA as a part of my job so I trust my hunch when it comes to thinking this is...

    2019 3D+ ambient temperature reading 102F while it's 30F outside

    Welp, looks like the wrong temperature reading is affecting cabin HVAC - my car is running A/C and blowing freezing air out of the vents while it is 30F outside. Based on the lack of reports on TMC or Reddit, I am guessing a hardware issue with the sensor or the wiring harness is at fault here...

    2019 3D+ ambient temperature reading 102F while it's 30F outside

    That was my first guess too, but there are a few arguments against it: - There is an actual reading. In cases I've read about where there was damage to the front wiring harness, the reading was displayed as "---" - As ambient temperature fluctuates, the reading also fluctuates. For example, it...

    2019 3D+ ambient temperature reading 102F while it's 30F outside

    Anyone observe odd ambient temperature readings on 2020.48.12.1? Yesterday, 30F outside and cloudy, I noticed my 2019 Model 3D+ displaying an ambient temperature reading of 102F: imgur.com After some time parked with climate running, it climbed to 103F, then went down to 90F. A reboot and...

    Supercharger - Rutland, Vermont

    That Healthy Living parking lot can fill up at most random times too. I lived in BTV for a while -- before the chargers went in -- and finding a spot there was often hit-or-miss. I was quite surprised when I found out that's where the chargers were going - it's a crammed and busy lot and there's...

    First impression

    As in Tesla Model 3 or BMW M3? Both have stiffer rides than the Y, with the BMW being substantially stiffer of the two even in comfort mode, at least for the current production model - I’ve not driven the new one yet. Out of curiosity, what did you drive before and which Y did you test drive?

    Winter Tires on Model 3

    For the Xi3, the 235/40/R18 size is available, but 235/40/R19 size that @Face_Disguise is asking about does not exist. With that said, going from 235/40/R19 to 245/40/R19 should be perfectly fine. See, for example, Limited replacement tire options for the 19s?

    Those are limits imposed by your car and battery pack. This is a V3 supercharger, so 3/Y and newer Raven packs can charge at up to 250kW.

    The hardware in the pictures is v3 (thin cable, no silver ring at the base of the want), so it these are 250 kW chargers.
