    Those of you that use SSDs for sentry mode. Does it get extremely hot?

    Ive been using a 2.5inch WD Passport drive (platter drive) for a while and it had no issues. Didnt heat up too crazy (just got warm). I decided to switch to an SSD, and oh my gosh. Even just driving around with 'dashcam' mode on it gets really warm. When car is parked under the sun with sentry...

    Dashcam Unavailable Check USB

    I have a mechanical (so basically infinite write cycles) WD Passport USB drive (made so that it can take vibrations from driving). Was working great for over a year. After updating to 2022.12.3.5 I got this issue. I took out the drive, did SMART check and checked every sector. Didnt find any...

    Master Thread: Definitive 14-50 NEMA Outlet Guide

    I agree Back on the main topic, I ordered BRYANT 9450FR for ~$46 from Grainger https://www.grainger.com/product/BRYANT-50-A-49YY93 Seems like the best bang for the buck. According to OP its same quality as the $100 HUBBELL for half the price. I dont think we'll be seeing those close to OP's...

    Master Thread: Definitive 14-50 NEMA Outlet Guide

    Well, its multi faceted. Not being to code means that if your house burns down its an excuse for insurance to not pay out. But this may actually not be a problem. His link says 40A, but if you click it it actually says rated for 50A. As long as that thing will accomodate 6AWG wire (which it...

    Master Thread: Definitive 14-50 NEMA Outlet Guide

    Its rated for 40A, 14-50 is rated for 50A. Tesla Gen 2 mobile connector pulls only 32Amps, so it would 'work' but it would not be to code and would be a fire hazard if someone in the future (perhaps next house owner) plugs in something that actually pulls over 40 Amps (by 80% rule of NEC any...

    Master Thread: Definitive 14-50 NEMA Outlet Guide

    I am currently (and for the last 2 years or so) have been using LEVITON cheapo Home Depot one with 32A draw from mobile adapter on MY. Works fine most of the time. But if my charge is low enough for it to charge for more than 4 hours or so then it will trigger receptacle overheat (Blinking red...

    Master Thread: Definitive 14-50 NEMA Outlet Guide

    you wont be able to find a small switch because it needs to support potential full draw from the 14-50R downstream from it. I used something similar to this - GE 60 Amp Non Automatic AC Disconnect TNA60R1CP - The Home Depot

    High battery degradation from brand new MYP.

    Isnt it still a guessometer? While its better than nothing it does mean that if one number is wrong then whole thing is wrong and in some cases you could never know you are looking at bad data.

    What goes into the trip kwh usage calculation?

    Just did a 600 mile trip in LR MY. Trip computer states the following: 603 miles | 183 kWh | 302 Wh/mi I left the trip at 100% charge (74Kw in the pack). I supercharged during the trip for total of 125Kw. I arrived back with 7% battery. This means that I have put in total of 199Kw. Taking out...

    Any reason not to install 2021.32.22?

    Anyone know if with the driver monitoring in last update, the radar is still active in cars with radar (Model Y specifically) ?

    Lets talk mud flaps, spot welded nuts and loose bolts (also why every Model Y owner needs mud flaps)

    Got about 1500 miles with this setup. Its working great. In my previous post I mentioned water can make it past the mud flaps by simply overwhelming them during rain, but a quick wipe and its like new. Anything that makes it back there glances right off the PPF.

    Lets talk mud flaps, spot welded nuts and loose bolts (also why every Model Y owner needs mud flaps)

    Update 1 month after original post. Mud flaps are holding up well. Ive driven about 1000 miles so far with them. I am keeping track of efficiency and it is still the same watt/mile as it was pre mud flaps. Ive also had a chance to drive in rain. I am definitely seeing some road water make it...

    Lets talk mud flaps, spot welded nuts and loose bolts (also why every Model Y owner needs mud flaps)

    Quick update from the original post. I have now had 2 weeks of driving with my flaps (Abstract Ocean scoopy ones). Definitely see them stopping stuff. They arent collecting anything but I do see occasional sand splatter on the inside of the scoop (falls off on its own after driving a bit), and...

    Lets talk about laminated glass retrofit for 2020 Model Y (all you need to know)

    I should add that Tempered glass is ~$230 from Tesla, Laminated glass is ~$280 from Tesla. If you have Tesla do it, they will most likely not install laminated if your car originally came with tempered since their system says the yare not interchangeable. But they charge about $60 for labor...

    Lets talk about laminated glass retrofit for 2020 Model Y (all you need to know)

    For those that dont want the details. Can you do the retrofit? Yes. Should you? Probably not. Now for the details: Here is the laminated (2 sheets of glass that are installed on 2021 and newer model Y's in the front) on the bottom and the tempered glass on top of it - Yes, the shape is a...

    Has anyone successfully retrofit laminated side glass to Model Y?

    cant edit original post (been over 60 minutes), but doing some more research found this article on someone doing Model 3, and they state its a direct fit: Primary Tesla - Laminated Glass Retrofit here is the quote in case something happens to the link. keep in mind this is for Model 3 not Y...

    Has anyone successfully retrofit laminated side glass to Model Y?

    I watched this video of the comparison. And the glass looks the same shape as far as anchor points. Its just on the new one because they used metal they didnt have to use as much glass at the bottom. But as far as attachment points where the motor is attached, from this video it looks the same...

    Has anyone replaced door windows? How much did it run you?

    Thanks for the link. For anyone else looking. In that video they show an invoice, states: $260 for laminated double pane and $225 for tempered single pane window (directly from Tesla). Prices not too bad, in line with other cars. I did see different attachment points at the bottom, BUT they...

    Has anyone replaced door windows? How much did it run you?

    Something got stuck in the window seal, scratched the window as it rolled down (front passenger). Contacted a few glass shops around everyone refusing to try and buff out scratch out of tempered glass. Said I need to replace the glass. So curious how much that would run me? I have the 2020...

    2021.4.18.2 on new MY

    Well since no-one was confirming one way or another. I am happy to confirm that after updating my Model Y (with radar), it does NOT require Auto High Beams for auto-pilot. And no mention of anything about internal camera in the notes.

    Planning a Trip

    Ive used A better Route Planner for several 1000+ mile trips and it works great. It even allows you to specify how much extra weight you will have in the car. Fine tune how long you want to stay (like if you rather charge longer but fewer times) etc... highly recommend it.

    2021.4.18.2 on new MY

    My concern is that even if it is confirmed that this update doesnt mess with any of that, the code could be there, and potentially enabled at a later date (without another update). is it confirmed that Auto High beams is a requirement after this update even on with radar cars?

    Thoughts on carrying a tire patch kit instead of

    So I know that using slime stuff is bad idea due to the sensors in the wheel. Even the Fix-A-Flat sold by Tesla says that TPMS has to be replaced if used. And I dont want to buy a spare to carry around. I think a small patch kit is a perfect balance, it may take a while to get it patched, but...

    Turn Signal Light Fault - Service Is Required To Restore Functionality

    Did any of you figure this out? Just got the fault on my 1 year old Model Y when signaling right, turn signals seem to work just fine and I used the right turn a bunch to try and make it happen again but it wont, so only happened once. Just did get 2021.4.18 software last night, not sure if a...

    Getting new tires??

    I apologize for probably the most basic of question. But I got a Y, and need new tires soon. On all my previous cars id just find a local tire place with cheapest tires, pay them a few hundred bucks and be on my way. I didnt really care about the tires. But on the Y, I kind of do. And because...

    App charge limit percentages are off?

    This has happened before and ended up fixing itself later. But I cant seem to be able to set the charge limit to 100%, going all the way to the max sets it to 98%. And setting it to 90% (I even feel the phone vibrate indicating I set it right on the mark), it sets to 89%. Anyone experience this...

    Do you use Electrify America as a Tesla owner?

    wait, is this for real? howly shyte! that would explain it! But it costs them to operate doesnt it? If noone is using them due to high costs, then they'd be losing money?

    Do you use Electrify America as a Tesla owner?

    Over here in California we got Superchargers at 36c/kw, which isnt cheap, but level 2 chargers are around 20c/kw. We got the first Electrify America station open near me, never seen one in person before, and its 46c/kw. And from what I understand with $500 adapter I can get 50kwh charge rate on...

    Creaking sounds when closing liftgate, and strange buzzing sound when first starting to drive.

    You clearly saw me refer to it as rear liftgate multiple times. I mistyped it once. No need to latch onto that. You knew what I meant. I cant go back and edit it as edit option goes away after some time.

    Creaking sounds when closing liftgate, and strange buzzing sound when first starting to drive.

    Its not, my Y is before they added the speaker. Also see my post just before yours, I figured out what the noise is. Question is... is it "per spec". Since left side actuator is much louder than right side. Looks like possibly this part number: M3, IP, AIR VENT, ASY, DRIVER 1083320-00-F Picture

    Creaking sounds when closing liftgate, and strange buzzing sound when first starting to drive.

    After experimenting a bit it appears that the buzzing noise is from the actuators that control the air direction. Can be triggered by moving the direction from one extreme to the other. The noise is non existent on anything higher than 5 fan speed, on 1 its pretty loud. The right side...

    Creaking sounds when closing liftgate, and strange buzzing sound when first starting to drive.

    Just curious if you guys have heard the read liftgate make creaking noises when closed? If so, whats the cause? And also I noticed that sometimes (not every time) I start driving Ill hear a buzzing noise, seems like its coming from front left, it lasts about 2 to 3 seconds. Sounds kind of like...

    Does anyone know how the right side 'dummy' charge port door is attached?

    My tail light got replaced, and that fake door is no longer sitting flush. Tesla said its 'within spec'. Im thinking about trying to adjust it myself. Anyone know how its attached? Also, does anyone know what tesla does to adjust panel gaps with things like tail lights? Do they put some sort of...

    Is car's charge voltage accurate for you?

    ah, gotcha. I misunderstood, I thought you were saying you did no loops before and now do a loop. But I get it now. How much does one of those thermal cameras cost? and what brand/name of the one you use? Seems like a useful tool.

    Is car's charge voltage accurate for you?

    Thanks for the input guys. Yeah, I am not concerned about heat too much, I just hate wasting energy, every watt wasted makes electicity vs gas pricing skew towards gas by tiny bit, the only part that gets warm is the Tesla's own cable (between the brick and the car). @MY-Y , nice point about the...

    Is car's charge voltage accurate for you?

    Just checked again, Tesla is reporting that its charging at 238V 32A on 15ft run. So sag of ~2 to 3 volts. Im curious, are you guys getting zero voltage drop on short runs?
  46. C

    Is car's charge voltage accurate for you?

    Well, I mentioned in the original post that my 1772 charger also gives voltage/amperage readings. So for there to actually exist a voltage drop, both of the runs would have to be bad in some way, plus this charger's measurements would have to be incorrect. This is why I am assuming that Tesla is...

    Is car's charge voltage accurate for you?

    I have two 14-50 plugs, one side of the garage ~50ft run. And other side ~15ft run. Both runs are 8AWG copper. I have a J1772 charger (with a readout of Volts, Amps, Kwh etc...) and the Tesla Mobile charger. When plugged in and not pulling any power, the readout on the J1772 and On Tesla screen...

    Would like some education on PPF please

    Hello, after a recent roadtrip and getting a couple stone chips around the hood I decided that I need to get full front PPF. Ive been googling and reading around, trying to educate myself on what is possible with PPF. I found a shop around here (on the forum, Yelp reviews are 5 stars), stopped...
