    Model S - Power Frunk Group Buy (all years)

    Darn! Missed it by one day! I'll keep a closer eye on the forum for the next group buy.

    A CD player that works via USB - finally!!!

    Actually, I do. I live in a rural area of the Parish that doesn't have dense housing. The common carriers (AT&T, Cox, etc.) won't serve us as they can't get the subscriber density they want. As such, I have two options: satellite and nothing. My neighbor tried satellite and he said it sucked...

    A CD player that works via USB - finally!!!

    This is the best answer for the original posters effort. Yes, one could easily (illegally) rip the libraries CD's to MP3/FLAC and put them on a USB drive, but it's a LOT easier (and legal) to just pop them in, enjoy and return when done. Yeah, not sure why there's so many rude, hateful...

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    4 days in and no further issues. I'm leaning towards whatever hardware issue that OEM USB drive had was the cause of my dead MCU. There was one firmware update in-between my issue and my new USB drive. Maybe that had a fix.

    2021 Tesla Model S Plaid 1:18 Diecast

    When, if ever, is Tesla (anyone) going to offer the 2021 Plaid in the same manner as the previous cars? I really like the detail and size of the 1:18 diecast from Tesla. The closest I can get is the P100D with Arachnids in Pearl White... but the screen is the wrong orientation and the trim isn't...

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    I'm taking a chance today by plugging in a replacement Sentry USB drive. I tried doing a full format on my Tesla OEM drive and it actually failed. It must have a hardware fault. I ordered a new Samsung Bar Plus 256GB and fully formatted it exFAT without issue. It's in the car now so we'll see if...

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    Oh, my good luck continues with the issue at hand. No dead MCU since removing all USB devices. I miss my Sentry clips and my USB music though. 😥 I did install an update a of couple days ago... 2021.40.6 and the most predominate feature seems to be the ability to view Sentry cameras from the...

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    Well, that's interesting and adds some credence to the thought that a simple USB filesystem issue kills the MCU. As a very long time Linux guru, there has always been a pain point with the way NFS mounted filesystems work. This is the basis for the hard/soft mount options in NFS. I wonder if...

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    Definitely "push the envelope" when you get your car back... install a Sentry drive, a console music drive, etc. I hope it holds solid.
  10. Dameon

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    I hope that fixes the issue. I wonder what the problem really is. Like we'll ever hear anything from Tesla. I wonder if it is related to eMMC issues. That would absolutely make the most sense.

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    Going on my 4th day since removing the Sentry USB drive... no further issues. [fingers crossed]
  12. Dameon

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    Oh, and as an additional note, my MCU has been behaving fine since I removed all USB devices. Specifically, the Sentry cam USB device.
  13. Dameon

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    I'm skeptical that this is a firmware related issue... it could be, but this reeks more of a native Linux issue where it is having a hard time dealing with a potentially corrupt filesystem on an attached device. That's not to say a future release won't change the behavior of filesystem...

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    If the MCU is truly dead (which was my issue, but not necessarily Gandalf's issue), the app will not work to pop the frunk... but the fob should work fine. When I presented my situation to my Tesla SM, he suggested leaving the 12v battery disconnected for at least 10 minutes for total drain.
  15. Dameon

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    So your car was online yesterday... i.e. your MCU was running. You pulled both/all USB drives at that time and since then the MCU has died?
  16. Dameon

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    Interesting thread... but in my case, this is the OEM Tesla USB drive. Whether it is actually manufacturer by Samsung is another discussion. Unless you somehow acquired the appropriate .inf file for this hardware, it's going to configure itself as a generic storage device... People on eBay...

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    A couple of observations... I put my Sentry USB drive in my Windows PC and it didn't give me the "drive needs to be checked" message. But the embedded Linux in the MCU may not mark unclean umounts in a way Windows interprets them. The drive wasn't anywhere near capacity: Which is another...

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    Yes, the Sentry USB drive is something I've spent way too much time on... troubleshooting normal behavior and understanding its limitations: Wiki - 2021+ Model S Refresh - Missing/Incomplete Software Features Wow, that's an interesting observation. I'll try that in a bit and report back. It's...

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    So last night about 8:30pm, my SM in New Orleans texted me and said my car was now online. I ran out to the garage and it was! So my outage was about 48 hours. I checked everything... DIC, MCU, phone app, all were working normally. Since the car was back online, he pulled all diagnostic logs...

    Yikes! I feel even worse for him as he only got to enjoy a week before problems started.

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    This isn't my first Model S. I bought a P90D when they first came out (late 2015) and was very happy with the Ranger service. Available 5 days a week and they were usually at my house within 48 hours of scheduling. That response has diminished significantly in the last couple of years. I guess...

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    You have a Plaid on 19's and have the ~45mph shimmy? Although I haven't been following the thread for this, yours is the first 19" tires I've heard of with the problem. So that eliminates tires/wheels as the issue. I never suspected that anyway, but others did. My Service Manager at the New...

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    Thanks for responding and confirming this is a "known issue" at least by 2021 Model S owners. Your issue seems to match mine exactly... only mine didn't come back in an hour.

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    Not sure what the first statement means... drivable is relative. As I originally stated, I was able to drive it by eventually getting the manual gear selection soft buttons to function. My concern was the number of MCU controls functions that weren't working... like all of them. I was able to...

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    I was able to verify the lights did work in this "offline" mode. As do the external markers, like turning signals, but I can't easy tell from within the car that they are on or not. The tactile buttons for signals have always been hit or miss. Sometimes I press them and it will blink once (flash...

    2021 Plaid was DOA this morning...

    Overall, I'm happy with car. Yeah, I don't like the driveline shimmy at ~45mph, but as long as it isn't damaging anything, I can live with it until a fix comes along. I'm less happy with Tesla Service. This morning, for no apparent reason and without warning, my car was dead dead. I parked it...

    Wiki 2021+ Model S Refresh - Missing/Incomplete Software Features

    I am now retracting this confirmation. I'm not sure if something changed in one of the three updates I've received in the past couple of weeks, but the 1TB drive in the glovebox is NOT working for Sentry/Dashcam. Mega fail there. It does act like it's working...allows me to format without error...

    Another question for Plaid and new LR refreshed owners - usb music

    Aaaannndd yet another this weekend... 2021.32.22... At least the Release Notes changed this time. I signed up for FSD Beta, but not approved yet.
  29. Dameon

    Another question for Plaid and new LR refreshed owners - usb music

    There is likely a lot more. I assume the session is encrypted and I can't decrypt it "on the wire" without the cert they used.

    Another question for Plaid and new LR refreshed owners - usb music

    Quick note about my media player woes... I have noticed the past couple of weeks that I haven't had any issues with USB drive media. The music has been starting right where it left off and the drives haven't gotten confused about each other (the console music drive and glovebox Sentry drive)...

    Another question for Plaid and new LR refreshed owners - usb music

    Annndddd another update. 2021.32.20.1 dropped yesterday. Same Release Notes as last two updates... see above.
  33. Dameon

    Another question for Plaid and new LR refreshed owners - usb music

    On a slightly related note, after installing 2021.32.10 last night, the release notes seem to be from the previous update... I am quite certain I had sub woofer volume control and Immersive Sound a couple weeks ago. I know because I was showing it to a friend specifically. Maybe "Media...

    Wiki 2021+ Model S Refresh - Missing/Incomplete Software Features

    And it does! So now I have a 1TB Sandisk in the glovebox for Sentry/dashcam and a 64GB USB in the center console for MP3 songs... both working (as well as before).

    2021 Model S Plaid Blackvue Dashcam Install

    Looked for something related to dashcam install, but he seems to only post race videos... https://www.youtube.com/c/TeslaPlaidChannel/videos Is this the correct channel?

    Wiki 2021+ Model S Refresh - Missing/Incomplete Software Features

    Another feature request/bug fix: if you have an alternate horn sound (like Old Horn) configured and you're playing music (streaming or USB), when you honk the horn it plays the Old Horn sound, but your media playing goes into spinning mode and doesn't return unless you skip track or switch sources.

    Wiki 2021+ Model S Refresh - Missing/Incomplete Software Features

    Okay, some progress on my various USB drive issues. After updating to 2021.32.5, I'm not sure it rebooted the MCU, so yesterday I removed all USB drives and did a scroll wheel reboot. I then put my Sandisk 1TB NVMe (as above) in the glovebox and it recognized it (as before), I used the MCU to...

    Wiki 2021+ Model S Refresh - Missing/Incomplete Software Features

    So I accepted 2021.32.5 last night as yet another hope to get my USB music back... and nope. Dammit. Am I stuck without USB music forever? How in the heck is this so screwed up and seemingly unreversible? But I did get another rearrangement of buttons and options... :rolleyes:

    2021 Model S Plaid Blackvue Dashcam Install

    I have the electronics knowledge, but not the "remove the black plastic thing behind the rear view mirror" knowledge. That was a majority of the reason I started the thread. I've pried and poked on that piece, but it looks rather fragile and I'd prefer not to break it. I assume it would take...

    Wiki 2021+ Model S Refresh - Missing/Incomplete Software Features

    That's funny considering the Tesla OEM USB drive is exFAT (which is why I used it).

    Wiki 2021+ Model S Refresh - Missing/Incomplete Software Features

    Well *sugar* (I actually typed that so the forum wouldn't have to)... too late. I was so pissed off about the cached USB issue, I was getting desperate. But seriously @WilliamG , let me know if you get your drive working. It'd like to know if this is my issue or a known issue. Thanks.
  42. Dameon

    Wiki 2021+ Model S Refresh - Missing/Incomplete Software Features

    Yeah, good luck with that. I was at CostCo this weekend and they had a heck of a deal on a Sandisk 1TB NVMe drive. Normallly $139, on sale for $99. Since my OEM Tesla USB drive was only holding 1/2 a day of dashcam footage, I figured 1TB would hook me up. Got home, removed the OEM drive...

    2021 Model S Plaid Blackvue Dashcam Install

    Yes, I did a search in the entire forum for "Blackvue Plaid" and had no hits. The auto suggestion feature of the search engine suggested this link, but it was for a Model 3 and had no bearing on my situation. I was fortunate enough in my P90D to have the unused 12v constant power plug (unused...

    I still haven't applied the badge. Still undecided. For the majority who voted on a position (not the majority that poo-pooed the idea), it seems to be over the "Plaid" is the preferred position. I'll try to get it applied in the next couple of days and post a picture.

    Another question for Plaid and new LR refreshed owners - usb music

    Yes, USB songs have cover art if they have it embedded or you have the cover art files with the song. It will not attempt to pull them off the Internet based on song/artist. Yes, the USB drive randomly disappears while you're away from the car and when you return it has defaulted to "select...

    Plaid Vibration around 38-42MPH....

    No update (I have a service visit in New Orleans next week), but I have shared communication with a local Plaid owner (newer build than mine) and he "insists" that his car doesn't have this issue. He is, for whatever reason, unwilling to meet up and compare. Yes, here in the same town. Anyway...

    Aftermarket Plaid Graphic Emblem Placement

    I did a search on eBay... there are several. I bought this one: Automotive Tesla Plaid Badge 3D Logo Clear 3M Self-adhesive for Model S X 3 Y | eBay I'm happy with the build quality. Heavy metal and paint seems to be within the crazy lines. Comes with 3M adhesive applied on the back and they...

    Aftermarket Plaid Graphic Emblem Placement

    Agreed on fake badges, but this isn't a fake badge. It is a Plaid, just not one of the delivery event cars. Well, maybe that does make it a fake delivery event car.
