    Phone Died and 2FA Reset

    Grid Draw Grossly Wrong

    I am seeing 0.5-1.5 kWh "shadow" current to/from grid on a daily basis. Usually one figure matches the other for any given day, so for example if I receive 0.6 kWh from, then I will also see 0.6 kWh sent to the grid. Nowhere near what you are seeing, so a call to Tesla would probably help to...

    Supercharger - Huntsville, TX

    The supercharger can get busy at times. I don't know if this has been fixed recently, but it has always been plagued by intermittent power output. Either the charge rate would drop significantly or the car would suddenly stop charging. I haven't been there since last year, but at that time I...

    Model S: Best Car ever for the Mountains!

    Thanks OP for this thread. Brings back some great memories. Just a few weeks into ownership of our Model S we made the virgin road trip from Texas to North Carolina. Blue Ridge Parkway was a culmination of the trip and I completely agree that the car was just made for this!

    Software and Camera Issues After Infotainment Upgrade

    Same. One thing that I've noticed is that the latest software was already pending (100% download complete, but still not available for install). I waited a full day to see if it will finish checking the download. Since it did not, I decided to do a full reboot after that. So finally, on day 3...

    Lightening strikes home wall charger can it be repaired?

    If it is a Tesla one, try contacting them and see if they would be willing to replace.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Similarly in my case - I was waiting patiently for an email to arrive (it never did). Then my refurbished replacement MCU started acting up, so I decided to schedule an appointment. I mentioned that I am interested in the paid upgrade of MCU at the same time.

    Also, depending on your current braker, make sure to adjust the settings inside HPWC to match the new setup (in case it is different amperage).

    Contract to Installation times?

    Order placed in July, installation scheduled for Nov 5-6. Like you, I am concerned about qualifying for the 26% before it drops. I was taking notes about the whole process, so figured I might as well document it properly: Going solar!

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Re 1. This could be an option if it becomes really annoying! Re 4. That's about the only thing I haven't tried. I will wait though, it is not that important. I hope I don't end up spending money on more junk like game controllers :P Re 6. Nope, no standby mode. Good call though, went to...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Just a quick update: I've got my MCU2/HW3 done last Friday. The appointment was postponed 3 times due to parts not available, but it was worth the wait. Tesla in Plano, TX did an excellent job with the install and porting all necessary data. The only things I had to do was to configure the...

    Michelin vs. Goodyear, what to get?

    CHeck out Tire Rack as someone suggested. I bought my last 2 sets of tires and am happy with the experience. Also, there was a mailer sent from TR just before the Labor Day. Not sure if it is still valid but there was a discount on Michelin tires. They should not be 300 dollars more than Goodyear.

    Michelin vs. Goodyear, what to get?

    I replaced the stock Goodyear with Michelin tires. The only complain I had was they lasted 35k miles. Otherwise they were great. Some people complain about the noise (Goodyear louder vs Michelin) but I think without an objective and scientific test it is hard to say. We run into a placebo effect...

    Your turn signals work just fine when MCU is dead. You just don't get the audible feedback when blinkers are turned on.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    My replacement MCU (refurbished, about 40k+ miles on it when installed) started having the same symptoms that lead to the death of the one it replaced: erratic reboots, unit was off when entering the car, USB storage not detected or showing 0 songs, no album covers loaded, no sound etc. I put...

    Don't fully charge?

    Congrats! It is OK to charge to 100% if you intend to use it immediately - just don't leave the car in that state for extended period of time. For daily use, pick a value between 20-90% and don't worry too much about it.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I have an appointment scheduled for both MCU2 and HW3 upgrade. Looks like there is now an option to either replace the full MCU kit (for a full price of 2500) or retain the main LCD screen if it is working properly (the price would be 2250 then). I haven't seen this mentioned before, so just...

    Broken HPWC gen 2 for parts in DFW area - free to grab

    Hi all, I inherited this HPWC some time ago from my co-worker, hoping that I could get it fixed. Never got to do this after all. It is a gen 2 HPWC with 24' cable. Here's the photo of the damage: If anyone in DFW area is interested in using it for parts, I can arrange to meet up at one of...

    Possibly. I find it strange though that the cars that are few months apart (my Model S was built in March 2017) don't have the same aux wiring harness present.

    Dash Cam Install for Model S

    Ah, completely missed that. Is it connected to anything or just dangling loose? Sorry, it is at the top of the frame on your pic, so hard to see. I assume it is the same one I connected to on mine, just that mine has been attached to the back of that mic assembly with a tape. Find out if any...

    Dash Cam Install for Model S

    How old is your car? This looks different than my 2017 (MCU1 AP2). The 4-pin connector (on the side of the black box, white cable) is probably the actual microphone module.

    Dash Cam Install for Model S

    As long as you have the aux power source in the microphone grill area, this should work just the same.

    Route 66 Road Trip - Superchargers?

    I would strongly recommend to stay in Tucumcari for the night. Plan accordingly and drive around during sunset. Some great opportunities for pictures with all neon lights on. Spoiler alert: California, here we come! (Road trip 2018 – part 1)

    To add to that, 2500 would not buy me a new car. I can also keep my alcantara, leather seats, pano roof and RWD.

    Can’t stop charging

    Mine started doing this after recent SC visit and consequent 2020.4.1 update. The only way to stop charging is by unlocking the port. Yes to reboot, no to schedule charging.

    Car wont start ! The MCU is off but the Instrument cluster is on

    Mine just did that this morning - The car shows "please wait while the vehicle is powering on" or something similar. Wait a bit and see if you can put it into drive. MCU will remain blank but the IC is working. One other "side effect" - if it is humid outside, your fan will work based on your...

    Yellow line around 17" screen

    I'll let you know when summer comes. Mine was treated couple of months ago. Previously, when my screen has been replaced under warranty, I haven't noticed any degradation until the weather warmed up.

    Model S HW 2.0 to HW 3.0 Upgrades? (Not HW2.5 or Model 3 upgrades to HW3)
