    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    That makes sense. I ran into something similar as I went through my install where the system would beep and actuate the latch but nothing more. In my case, manually closing (or opening - I don't remember which now) the lid convinced the system that everything was OK and it cleared its fault...

    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    Have you contacted EVOffer's tech help? I found them to be extremely helpful and very easy to work with. It may take a little while for them to respond initially as I'm not sure where exactly on the globe they are so there is likely a significant time difference but once they responded to me...

    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    I thought the same thing when I was done but hadn't specifically looked at the movement before so I couldn't tell if it was different. That said, I washed the car over the weekend and didn't see any signs of water in the frunk so it appears to still be sealed.

    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    Install is done. Total time start to finish was probably about three hours but actual work time was probably under an hour. I had to stop a couple times to attend to other stuff and also to wait for them to respond to a couple questions. They were excellent to deal with and extremely helpful...

    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    One quick update - While I won't get to the install for at least another day or two, I did reach out to EVOffer with a couple questions I already had given the updated parts compared to what is shown on the install video - remember, I'm dealing with variant 1 for a pre-facelift car. They got...

    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    I will do my best to document the process but not sure if I'll be able to do a full video or not - don't want to make a 3 hour project into 5 hours to manage the camera. I will take pictures at least of any critical issues if they arise and post a summary once I'm done.

    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    They do for the newer variants but I'm dealing with a pre-facelift RWD car so the only guide is a video from 2020. And this kit has some significant changes/upgrades from what is shown in the video. The biggest difference is they appear to have changed the latch "motor" design from a simple but...

    Order received. Planning on installing it this weekend. I'll let everyone know how it goes.

    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    I don't believe so. They have an excellent install video on Youtube (I'm pretty sure it was linked previously in this discussion) that covers everything. The original design did require accessing the 12V battery and adding a wire directly to the + terminal but even in that video they showed...

    mec0t0 - thanks for all your work getting this together! I'll be putting my order in as soon as I get home.

    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    The control to activate the frunk opening remains the same as it is programmed by Tesla. The power kit doesn't change when the signal can be received, only what happens upon receiving that signal. If you're really concerned, try opening your frunk now while driving.

    Paint colors

    If I ever had the money to do it, one of the chameleon paints would be my choice. They require an absolutely perfect body and are 3-4 times the cost of standard paint.

    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    Does that 12 include just members with the most recent MS or does it include those of us with older vehicles as well?

    How are we supposed to get est range @ 90% 100% etc. now?

    I believe my car is one of those where the charge port will open if you mess with charging from the app when it isn't plugged in. Anyone know if there's a way to prevent this? (Not too critical as I never think about setting the charge level other than when the car is plugged in, and usually...

    Any chance they would accept an order for one or two of the older versions to be included in the deal?

    MCU2 Upgrade with FSD (already), what to expect?

    My car is much older than yours so I don't have any of the AP/FSD concerns but I did opt for the additional tuner to maintain FM/XM radio. This proved a little flaky at first with XM dropping out or being completely unavailable at times during the first few weeks. I'm not sure what resolved...

    Model S temperature sensor location

    Based on the behavior I've seen with mine, I would expect the sensor to be located in the nose cone or near the bumper as the temperature reading is definitely impacted by the battery cooling system when supercharging. If the sensor were in the mirrors, there would be no effect while supper...

    Supercharger - Mahwah, NJ

    When I first saw this location listed on Tesla's website, the due date was 2021 Q4. A couple months ago, I believe it said 2022 Q3. Now it's listed as 2023 Q1 so they are updating their website. I have no idea if these delays are due to Tesla or completely out of their control and due to the...

    Thanks for the various resources and suggestions. I tried DerbyDave's suggestion on the way home today and it worked without a hitch. Hopefully it will stay that way...

    Controlling Navigation Voice w/ Voice Commands

    I often use navigation when I either just want to know when I'll arrive, need directions for only part of the trip (usually right near the destination or in departing from a location and getting back to known routes), or just want to be able to track energy use with the energy app and account...

    Potential New Owner Charging Question

    As long as the car is locked, the charging cable can't be removed from the charge port. I'm not sure about what can be done to prevent other Tesla's from using the charger but I'm sure others will have suggestions.

    Supercharger - Mahwah, NJ

    Yes and yes, although I forgot about posting until today. No sign of anything on site. However if they're still in the permit process they wouldn't be able to do anything until that is completed.

    I'll be by there 3/26. If I have time and remember, I'll check.

    From Model 3 to Model Y to Model S

    I have my car set to raise the suspension at home and at my MIL's house as she has some difficulty getting in and out. It helps but at other locations we have to do it manually for her. I have no direct experience with MY but having parked next to one on multiple occasions, they certainly look...

    Periodic Loss of Sirius/XM After MCU2 Upgrade and 12V Replacement

    Thanks for everyone's input. Time for an update. My original SC appointment was schedule for this past Wednesday however over the week or so leading up to that time, the problem was appearing much, much less frequently. Furthermore, my text discussion with the Tesla techs seemed to indicate...

    Periodic Loss of Sirius/XM After MCU2 Upgrade and 12V Replacement

    In your experience, how long does this tend to take? So far I've only done local driving since the 12V battery was replaced and this issue started - nothing longer than 30 minutes. Unfortunately my patience for listening to ads on regular FM doesn't last 30 minutes so I've started using the...

    Periodic Loss of Sirius/XM After MCU2 Upgrade and 12V Replacement

    I saw that thread and assumed that since I had not issues with the old MCU1 nor at first with the upgrade to MCU2 that that particular software issue wasn't my issue. Of course there's nothing to stop them from recreating an old problem that they had previously solved. :rolleyes: I'm on...

    Periodic Loss of Sirius/XM After MCU2 Upgrade and 12V Replacement

    About six weeks ago I sprung for the MCU2 upgrade with the $500 FM/XM tuner option in my 2013 MS. Other than some initial challenges getting the new XM radio ID connected to my account, the system worked perfectly. Last week, the 12V battery gave notice that it was dying so I scheduled mobile...

    2016 Model S wheel alingment price and options

    I had the local Mavis center do my 2013 MS last spring for about $80. They had no issues and were able to give me a same day appointment. When it comes to suspension, these cars are just like anything else. Even the air suspension is very similar to systems used by other manufacturers.

    Driver Screen Stays On

    Thanks for the MCU info. My car still has MCU1 so my memory on what happened with the dual scroll wheel rebut was obviously wrong. Today both screens were off when I checked on the car so yesterday must have been a fluke.

    Driver Screen Stays On

    Just checked again and the screen is off. I got involved in some work stuff so I didn't check as quickly as I hoped so I don't know how quickly it went off. I didn't check the app but didn't see any notifications of open doors/windows and I never opened anything today. At any rate, it seems...

    Driver Screen Stays On

    I was never in the car today and I didn't hang around long enough after plugging it in yesterday to see if it went off after bringing up the charging status screen. I just unplugged it and the screen when off immediately. When I plugged it back in, the charging status screen came up and is...

    Driver Screen Stays On

    I have a 2013 MS and noticed that the instrument cluster screen in front of the driver is on when I went into the garage a couple of times today. The main touchscreen is off. The car is unlocked and plugged in but not charging. I did not have my key on me so the car shouldn't have been aware...

    Complete Reset after Software Update

    My 2013 MS picked up the latest software update earlier this week. The update itself went fine - the app even notified me of the successful completion. Today when I went to use the car, I found that the app no longer connected and everything had reset. I had to rename the car, recreate driver...

    Unwanted Cabin Heating

    Thanks fsch! While I don't have exact figures as you do, I think what you have described is now what is happening. I am certainly no longer seeing the actual heat being on now that I have the charging scheduling set up correctly.

    Unwanted Cabin Heating

    As we get into colder weather here in the northeast, I've discovered an unwanted aspect of keeping my (new to me) 2013 MS plugged-in in an unheated garage: it seems to want to waste electricity heating the cabin even when I haven't called for heat via the app. I spoke to my local service center...
