    Moved and now Sentry Mode won't turn off at home

    If you have multiple driver profiles in the car, make sure to change the home location(in the navigation area) in each. That solved it for us when we moved Edit-reread your text. I think you already did it

    Can my wife pick up the car?

    I picked up 2 cars in Fremont that were “contactless pickup”. The profiles were completed before pickup. Papers were signed, and ID verification was online. When we got to the lot for pickup, we got app access automatically and drove away. We didn’t have to talk to anyone, sign anything, or do...

    Annual subscription for connectivity

    FWIW, I just checked mine and I am having the same issue, I no longer see the option for annual subscription via the app. Ill need to check back in the car and see if its there. I used to see it in the am for sure so maybe it was taken away?

    So if I don’t have premium connectivity and then use hotspot or Wi-Fi, I can use the Tesla screen Spotify app?

    Aftermarket Tow hitch-bay area

    Any reason to keep or not keep the bumper bar? It feels weird to remove it but I guess we are placing a strong piece of metal in its place?

    Unexpectedly fast (3 weeks) delivery for Model S - something fishy?

    I had the same issue that they switched it from pick up at Fremont to home delivery. They said they just didn’t have a place to park the car while I come pick it up…

    Road-trip San Fransisco to Redwoods NP

    I am looking to do a trip from SF to Redwoods NP up north. I have a 2021 Y LR. We will have 5 adults so a packed car with some luggage. We are likely doing a 3-4 night trip. Anyone do this trip and have any insight? I do have ABRP and looked up some charging options. I have booked a place in...

    Tow hitch installer in Bay Area?

    Hi just seeing what you decided on. I’m looking for a hitch for my Y, also in the east bay. Thanks!

    Aftermarket Tow hitch-bay area

    Hm I’ve looked into some that I can install at home but seems like a bit much for me. I did find someone here who can install that particular model for ~$300. I have to supply the part so total is about $6-700… kinda wish I had just gotten the hitch when I ordered the car. Hindsight

    Aftermarket Tow hitch-bay area

    Do you know if mobile service can do it or it has to be done at the service center? I feel like dropping it off at the service center is a black hole and you’ll never know when you’ll get the car back…

    Aftermarket Tow hitch-bay area

    I have a model Y and looking to get a 2in tow hitch installed. Tesla is 1300, uhal is 700ish. Any good recommendations in the Bay Area? I am just looking to attach my bike rack. I’m not doing any heavy duty towing. Thanks!

    Auto frunk options

    Agreed. The convenience factor seems great but I am also worried about failure rates. I’ve decided to not go with it in the end. I hate that the front dents so easily so I don’t really even use it

    Auto frunk options

    My big worry is with the occasional faults that happen. I want to get it but dont really want to deal with an issue if it happens

    Auto frunk options

    What are the pros and cons of auto frunk systems from hanssow vs ev offer vs teslarati? Any pitfalls or regrets? I have a 21 YLR I’m in the Bay Area and it seems the go to installer is Larry https://hansshowbayarea.com/ Thanks!

    New app shows charging stats

    Agreeed. At 0.196 80kw is $15.68 vs .2 is $16. The bigger thing is the cost of gas. My app says it’s using California average, what ever that might be…I agree it would be nice to set it myself for my specific area.

    New app shows charging stats

    Are you primary owner on both? For us, the Y is under my account and the 3 is under my wife, but she gave me access to it. So I can see the charging stats for the Y(my car) but not 3(guest access car)

    New app shows charging stats

    Alright so they were able to integrate my EV charge rates from my electric company and it knows my TOU schedule. Next step is to implement this in the charging so it’s not this whole mess it is now. I want to be able to plug it in and just charge during not peak rates. Plain and simple.

    Confusing outlet vs breaker

    Since I dont see a ground wire, it’s likely they didnt use Romex? It is likely they just individually wired it?

    Confusing outlet vs breaker

    Thanks for you input! Matched what I’m “researching”. I’m liking the idea of repurposing the neutral for ground, and opens the door to a 6-50 down the line if I move out. I’m really annoyed that this house came with a 10-30. Just had an electrician come out who unfortunately wasn’t versed in...

    Confusing outlet vs breaker

    In theory could someone use a “white neutral wire”, wire it to the ground bar of the service panel making it now a ground wire in a white sheath and labeling it ground?

    Confusing outlet vs breaker

    More things to think about. The NEMA 10-30 is hot/hot/neutral while the HPWC needs hot/hot/ground. In my receptacle I only have 2 hots and a neutral, no ground wire. So…how do I make this work? I cant even swap out for a NEMA 14-50, presuming the wire gauge is correct. Gotten a few quotes, now...

    My $55,000 work truck

    I used my Y to move a majority of my boxes when moving. And we had movers come just for furniture. I think it took about 10 trips but with all the seats down, using the floor space of the back row, and all the compartments, this thing has so much room! Def gave it a good wipe down after. Luckily...

    Confusing outlet vs breaker

    Yeah I had my doubts as well about the outlet because the house was built in 2018ish. But I looked it up and bought the 10-30 adapter from Tesla and it works.

    Confusing outlet vs breaker

    Can anyone think of any reason why my house would be wired with a 50amp breaker to a nema 10-30 outlet? I’m not sure why they didn’t do a 14-50 outlet. I’m having a few electricians come out for a quote but it’s going to be a few days. My goal is to swap out the outlet and hardwire a Tesla...

    Current supercharger activity

    Unfortunately it only shows nearby. I’m curious to see what charging is like on my road trip

    Current supercharger activity

    Is there a way to check supercharger activity. What I’m looking for is the information that you can find in the car, but on my phone. Figuring out what kw the charger supplies, and current free stalls. I don’t see it on PlugShare, ABRP. Thanks!

    Road trip help

    Well it looks like Death Valley is the hard one, since there is so much driving between places. There is a hotel group that has about 6-10 charging spots, and then there Is another hotel a little ways away that has 14-50 hookups for RVs. I booked the latter, and hopefully will get a spot...

    Road trip help

    Ohh thanks! I’ll look into that. I guess my other important step is to figure out where I’m staying…I guess that’ll dictate a lot regarding my charging plan. I hope it doesn’t interfere much with the trip. Seems like it won’t if I’m start about going into the park well charged

    Matrix headlight

    So are projection setups always matrix lighting for teslas? We have the projection setup. I thought matrix lighting wasn’t allowed in the states but then there are videos of peopling having it. I guess I can try the holiday light show.

    New update 2021.44.25 adds customizable app launcher like Model S refresh plus other major upgrades to system.

    Tesla loaner car supercharging

    I got a loaner Tesla while mine is being fixed. If I supercharge, am I responsible or is Tesla? It’s not anywhere in the agreement, and being a weekend, there’s no one to ask… I found a thread from early 2020 but wasn’t sure if new info has come about. Thanks

    Don’t have to tell me twice. You look online and see one price, then when you’re ready to buy you have another 8-10k in fees/taxes.

    CA Waiting Room

    1. Destination fee is just another fee. See my favorite Brian Cooley explain it. I picked up my car at Fremont and had to pay. https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/new-car-destination-charge-what-to-know/ 2. At least the order fee is part of the overall car cost. But it’s easy money for tesla if...

Does it matter if I am on the trial premium connectivity? Edit: I may have answered my own question partially. It seems I need...

    CA CAV HOV Lane Decal - Wait times

    I’m curios to know to! Just mailed out mine today, should get there in the next few days. Then the wait begins… I am a little confused on specific use cases. For those of you in the bay, I can go on the 880 express lanes with this decal with a single driver for free, right?

The 3 trunk closing sound after pressing the button is terrible, while the Y is nice. Any way to change...
