    Loud whine under hood

    yesterday i went into my garage and my model S was off and plugged in on a trip charge. There was a soft wlectricwhining noise I hadn’t heard before. It kind of sounded like the whine you get when the A/C is on all the way but a little different. I took our ICE on the trip, didn’t want to...

    Service calls

    when I had questions or concerns for my local service center I used to pick up the phone, dial the number, and just like with my Honda dealership, spoke with my service department within a few seconds. Now...apparently Tesla has changed things and every time I try to talk to someone I can no...

    i was told by my SVC to do a hard reset of my MCU and Instrument Cluster all the way to the grey Tesla T weekly to try and help minimize issues. For the past two or three weeks when I reboot the MCU everything comes back up except for the climate system. I have to manually turn it back on. I...

When I looked at my mobile tesla app, to...

    Preset temp changes when I open the door

    i wasn’t sure if this was happening or not. Over the last few weeks it seemed as if I’d set my temp on my tesla app to one temp and when I got in the car it was something completely different. I have been having a lot of weird electrical problems but tonight just confirmed the temp change. I...

    I have my steering set to sport mode and a couple of times, while driving around a curve in the road, I have noticed that the steering wheel suddenly loses its sports mode resistance/stiffness for a few seconds which causes me to have to move the wheel a couple inches to compensate. It felt...
