    XM Possibilities with MCU Upgrade

    I was told they add the antenna to the lift gate arms. I haven’t checked with the service center yet about my “new” antenna

    XM Possibilities with MCU Upgrade

    Any update? My XM preview channel doesn’t work either

    21” Arachnid Referral Tires Advice Needed

    You were smarter than the service center that rotated my arachnids front to back ... definitely caused some issues for me. I actually have 2 sets of arachnids but went back to the 19”s because of tire costs and the 21”s don’t last that long. So yes staggered is normal. I found they had way...

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    Yes. Same thing happened to me with my first MCU1 replacement. OTA fix is possible. I tried checking everything before I left the service center but that one was missed by me. You’d think Tesla service would have a checklist to catch things like this ...

    XM Possibilities with MCU Upgrade

    My car is in the shop due to 2nd MCU1 screen failure so now I‘ve decided to get the MCU2 with the radio option. I too don’t have the sunroof (which means my car didn’t come with an XM antenna) but I’ve been told by the service center the XM antenna for the new MCU2 and radio is built into the...

    MCU upgrade question; is it possible to add XM?

    My car is in the shop due to 2nd MCU1 screen failure so now I‘ve decided to get the MCU2 with the radio option. I too don’t have the sunroof (which means my car didn’t come with an XM antenna) but I’ve been told the XM antenna for the new MCU2 and radio is built into the unit and doesn’t require...

    I’ve reported this issue to service and tech support, hopefully they’ll eventually write a software fix

    2015 MS 70D Odd Tire Wear Pattern

    When was the last time you had your alignment checked? I have the same car with coil suspension, I’m on my 4th set of tires with over 107k miles. I’ve had both 19” and 21” tires ... I’m back on the 19s after 2 sets with the 21s ... I recall the rear tires generally wearing out faster than the...

    24.6.11 HD Audio Playback via USB Stick - Loading Error FLAC

    I have 2 usb sticks with audio files and I’ve noticed the buggy update doesn’t show the name I have for each stick which makes it harder to find the songs I want to listen to ... years ago I was at a lunch at the Fremont factory where a question was asked about the media player and audio files...

    What firmware does your car have? Perhaps they fixed it on the firmware your car was delivered with ...

    Navigation won't work. Says "Service required"

    I got the same message after my mcu was replaced but it came back after my car went to sleep (I did a regular scroll wheel reboot). I wasn’t aware Before but a “full reboot” requires you to power off the car (in the service menu) and then sit still in the car for 2+ minutes, then hit the brake...

    Automatic Emergency Braking Slams on Brakes Often

    I was recently in for service and the technician told me that the maps and nav was completely a google product so the maps should be as accurate as what google has online. I have AP1 and it seems that whatever speed the camera reads supersedes what is listed on the map database. If you have the...

    Automatic Emergency Braking Slams on Brakes Often

    Best suggestion is to not use autopilot on undivided roads. A Tesla driver was killed (wasn’t paying attention) in a similar situation on autopilot so it sounds like they’ve over compensated for that scenario.

    24.6.11 HD Audio Playback via USB Stick - Loading Error FLAC

    I just got a new MCU and I thought they somehow changed the hardware that prevents high res audio playback. I guess I’m glad it’s a software thing. The media player has been the greatest disappointment with my Tesla.

    +1 availabel for Cybertruck event

    Like the “race the Tesla Semi” prize that I won (with many others) that doesn’t seem like it will ever happen either ... I kinda fell off the referral game after all the mishaps with prizes, but I still love the cars and will recommend them to everyone

    +1 availabel for Cybertruck event

    Thanks

    What will this cost to fix my broken steering wheel scroll button?

    Mobile tech fixed it for free, I’m out of warranty and he used a saved part from an airbag recall replacement. You don’t need the whole assembly just the scroll wheel. He did the whole thing in about 15 minutes. Way more awesome than shelling out $270 to replace other parts that aren’t broken

    +1 availabel for Cybertruck event

    According to my referrals I thought I was to receive an invitation to the Model Y unveiling, that didn’t happen... I emailed the referral program at the time and they said it was full ... so I emailed them again when Elon announced the date for the truck event but no invite came. I’ve been to...
  19. GasKilla

    Have you received your Model Y event invitation?

    Anyone get an email after 11PM last night? I’m supposed to get an invite according to the referral program but have yet to see an email. I’m local and can make it so I’d love to go, been checking my spam folder every 5 minutes but haven’t seen an email yet ... if anyone can’t make it and wants...

    Anyone have an extra ticket to Model Y event?

    I’ve been to plenty of these events and they barely check who your +1 is or email for them etc.

    Anyone have an extra ticket to Model Y event?

    Has anyone gotten an invite? As part of the referral program I’m supposed to get an invite to a “future” Tesla event ... I do live in LA and would like to go but this is certainly late notice for everyone that didn’t know already.

    GPS Position Stuck??!

    After my original problem I had this problem and did a center screen reboot and the problem went away ... hopefully you’ve tried that already
  23. GasKilla

    What will this cost to fix my broken steering wheel scroll button?

    Turns out the part is $200 and the labor is $70 ... seems pricey but at least a mobile tech will come out to replace it while I’m at work so that certainly makes it less of a hassle for me.

    What will this cost to fix my broken steering wheel scroll button?

    I'm out of warranty and was wondering if anyone has had this fixed out of warranty? Just broke last night under normal use.

    Help understanding referral award

    My app says my signature wall connector was available starting "June 2018" which was pushed back from a previous "expecting" date. Still waiting on a powerwall that originally was suppose be available in 2017 but was told due to the hurricane in Puerto Rico that everything was being sent there...

    Help understanding referral award

    FYI unless you want the Model S for kids (I don't think anyone has seen a signature wall connector) this will be your first of many frustrations with the referral program. And the only reason you might get a kids MS quicker than anything else is because it's handled by a 3rd party. I've earned...

    What easter eggs do YOU want?

    Maybe an Easter egg that actually gets the media player to work? It's absolutely absurd that I can hop in a POS GM rental car, plug in my USB stick with 14k songs and immediately start playing songs when if I do that in my tesla I have to wait a half hour before I can play one song ...

    v9 Unable to turn on heated steering wheel without first turning on A/C

    I'd like to request everyone experiencing this issue submit a bug report via the car so that this issue will get some attention and get fixed sooner than later

    v9 Unable to turn on heated steering wheel without first turning on A/C

    Yeah this is just super annoying, probably gonna just leave my heated steering wheel on until the summer rolls around. I actually could have turned it off on the way home tonight but it's too much of a hassle to deal with the HVAC turning on and off etc.

    v9 Unable to turn on heated steering wheel without first turning on A/C

    Or turn on anything other than front heated seats without first turning on the HVAC system. Sometimes I like to drive with the A/C off but with the heated steering wheel and seat on ... on v8 I'd goto the cold weather package page to turn on these items independently of anything the HVAC system...

    Version 9 on AP1

    Seems like every day there are new reasons not to "upgrade" to v9

    Version 9 on AP1

    Yeah it's really funny to think that people who drive Teslas are resistant to change. I still haven't upgraded because it appears that many of the functions I like and use regularly (camera on top screen for safety when dropping my son off at school, I'm tall and it's very hard to look at the...

    Version 9 on AP1

    I finally have the option to load the new firmware but haven't yet ... can anyone who HAS upgraded to v9 on an AP1 car provide a convincing argument to upgrade? Mostly all I've seen are the negatives with this update and I'd like some positive reasons to go ahead with v9
  35. GasKilla

    Version 9 on AP1

    If you manually open the charge port door from the charging control screen all your lights will turn off, at least that's the way the lights work on v8 firmware... I haven't upgraded nor have I been given the chance to, doesn't sound like I'm going to given the comments on this thread.

    I didn't think you could get rear heated seats without getting a heated steering wheel

    Version 9 on AP1

    Any screen shots of how the apps work on AP1 cars? Can you NOT have the backup camera and the map on the screen at the same time now? I use that feature regularly.

    Drive unit fluid replacement not part of annual service anymore?

    Don't see anything about "drive unit fluid replacement" but this form is from 2013

    Drive unit fluid replacement not part of annual service anymore?

    Body shop that repairs only Tesla told me power lift gate retrofit isn't possible due to different wiring and structural components. I asked because I was reareded and having the liftgate replaced.

    Question, why is chrome delete so expensive?

    I like the crome delete but I'm not a fan of the red T accents. Don't think that would look good on a TM3 either

    2 Month Old Model S Just Rear Ended - Help on the process please

    I basically had a very similar accident with XPEL too, but my damages looked worse than what I see from your photos. 1. Find an approved body shop and let them deal with the nickel and dimes. You don't have to deal with it but your insurance or the body shop might. 2. You'll need to make sure...

    Speed limit database updated?

    Are you on AP1 or AP2? My car (AP1) will read the posted speed limit signs and adjuste AP accordingly, which is great unless you pass a school zone when school isn't in session

    Dual engine shut down on freeway. Anyone else?

    I'm curious too. I have a 70D and have had no such problems, but just passed 50k miles so I'm out of warranty on everything but the powertrain

    So torn... P100D or something else - lease is up.

    Did you see the design studio today? They added some exclusive options to the P100D including rims and ventilated seats.

    Software Update 2018.18.2 301aeee

    I had an "update available" show up on my phone app but when I got to my car there wasn't an update pending. My steering wheel heater is still broken. Has this "disappearing update" ever happen to anyone else? It's a first for me.
