    Smart meter how long without electricity

    Gas meters are battery powered, they don't need the power off to replace. They only need the power off to swap the electric meter. Usually it's a very simple job. Obviously they wouldn't tell you that.

    Smart meter how long without electricity

    Hardly any time at all, was about 15 minutes when mine was swapped out. The longest part was the commissioning when the power was back on.

    2022.16 to fix the boot!

    Voice command from inside the car. As to what both their hands are up to and the scenario is a different matter.

    Boot strut recall

    I've already been around that loop a long time ago and had the strut changed. Unfortunately even when Tesla do swap the strut out for a new one, it doesn't last long before the issue returns. It's probably worth seeing if the software update does help, because even if they do change the...

    How Secure Are Teslas?

    I don't think anyone suggested any customer should worry. It's Tesla's problem to fix, let them worry.

    Boot strut recall

    The root cause is bad design and components, the hack fix is now a firmware change. It's all one and related. This powered boot issue sadly isn't new, like many I've had it since the car was new in late 2020. It's just they finally figured out they are changing rather too many struts, so...

    How Secure Are Teslas?

    Clever, it was only a matter of time. https://research.nccgroup.com/2022/05/15/technical-advisory-ble-proximity-authentication-vulnerable-to-relay-attacks/ This effectively makes BLE have the same vulnerability as traditional keyless entry. Tesla should therefore implement the same...

    Text from Tesla to schedule and inspection

    Or I would say they are just working out who actually replies to the text, as those people are more likely to be susceptible to scams. Multilayered scams are sadly quite effective. They don't just go in with the first hit anymore, they lead the victim slowly and build trust. When Tesla did...

    Text from Tesla to schedule and inspection

    I think your correct suspicion tells you everything you need to know.

    Just noticed my middle seat doesn't have a seat belt locking clasp?

    Well even if there was any doubt about lack of quality control and PDI, it's definitely gone now. Maybe Tesla has statistics for how often the middle seat belt was used, like passenger lumbar support.

    Service centre flexibility?

    Are you sure? It definitely allows it. I know it's not intuitive, but it's always worked for me right up to the morning of the appointment.

    Service centre flexibility?

    You can add it to the appointment now, without changing the appointment date and time. The app allows this. Just add a new service item for the lights. Open existing service appointment - Mange appointment - services (drop down arrow at top) - select service - click new issue type.

    Elon Musk warns Tesla may stop taking orders on some vehicles due to “ridiculous” demand

    Clever, nothing like telling people there is a shortage to trigger panic buying. He's got everyone wrapped around his little finger.

    2022.16 to fix the boot!

    This boot issue is really begining to annoy me. I know on the grand scheme of things it's not important, but the number of times now I am carrying several shoulder bags plus other bags, I can just about reach the release button and it only half opens. Now I can't reach it to press again and it's...

    Tesla loan question

    Same for me, absolutely no annual statement anywhere which is rather naughty of them. Interestingly that does indeed look like the creditor is now non-compliant.

    No front lights at all, even indicators (Whoops did I do something....)

    I can only really offer some general diagnostic advice to help work out the issue. Roll back each electrical change one by one, especially any wiring harness connectors that were needed, checking at which point the headlights start working again. Because it's such a clinical failure, I do...

    2022.16 to fix the boot!

    No harm in more people hassling them however, they love making decisions on statistics. And by that I mean, design it right to begin with.

    Sentry mode - no longer able to view live

    Well I've happily used free Spotify for 6 months, I wouldn't call that "not prompt" My reading is that the consensus is that Spotify isn't part of premium connectivity, even Tesla no longer list it as included with premium connectivity on their website. I've not heard of anyone loosing it.

    MY lack of rear seat heater buttons and kids !

    The S3XY buttons look like they basically come with a Bluetooth OBD adapter and the model 3/Y adapter. Does anyone know that OBD adapter therefore works with scan my tesla? So no need to swap OBD adapters to use both.

    119 Miles And Paint Chipped Already

    Welcome to the club, wait until you've done a fair few thousand more miles as there is plenty more to come.

    Sentry mode - no longer able to view live

    Just for info, the free Spotify works over a WiFi hotspot as well even without paying for premium connectivity. It's not actually part of premium connectivity, but obviously the internet access bit is. But yep, you do need premium connectivity for live view.

    [UK] 2022.12.x

    For me, this has always shows £0 each month after a payment is made and until a few days before the next one is due. I think it only shows if an outstanding or scheduled payment is due that month

    [UK] 2022.12.x

    Version 4.8.0 of the Android app has indeed stopped showing miles on the slider next to the percentage when the car is set to show percentage. Previous versions did show both. I suspect this is why some see it and some don't

    What temperature does overheat protection kick in? Any way to check its working?

    Yep, I definitely had the notification arrive days later. The phone beeped when it arrived, it wasn't a notification I missed. The time it displays since the notification arrived was even showing as just now. I did leave the boot open a few days early but fortunately noticed myself. Yet the app...

    What temperature does overheat protection kick in? Any way to check its working?

    Can you hear the car to know if it's actually cooling? I ask as I've recently had some notifications arrive that were from weeks ago, such as the boot being left open when it wasn't.

    Model 3 locking nuts - Halfords

    If someone has locking wheel nuts their probability of theft is slightly lower than someone who doesn't. That may only be slightly, but statistically true none the less Whether that slightly lower probability is worth it in your eyes, is entirely up to the individual. I totally understand why...

    Model 3 locking nuts - Halfords

    I suspect those who are so called "professional" aren't overly daft. They choose their target of the highest value yet lowest risk to them, they won't just jack up, they'll know exactly who to go for. Hence, the only protection from "professionals" is to look the least attractive compared to...

    Model 3 locking nuts - Halfords

    Or, if they are determined, they'll instead go for the nearby car that doesn't have them and not yours. Sad, but ultimately that's how security measures work.

    [UK] 2022.12.x

    That's the one. I'm greeted with that soon after I put the car into drive. A reboot didn't actually fix it, the reboot actually triggers the jingle when the software boots up. I think it happens when sonic is the last game played, it somehow triggers this issue.

    Car alarm - Continuous trigger at night (Solved!)

    Yep, exactly that, it's standard here on every model.

    [UK] 2022.12.x

    Since 2022.12.3.1, I randomly hear the sega jingle play when I start driving. If music is playing that is interrupted for the jingle to play and then resumed. I suspect a reboot may fix it, but in an amusing way I'm kinda use to it now.

    2022.16 to fix the boot!

    Let's not overthink this, it's just a powered boot strut. They shouldn't even be in this mess, there is nothing tricky here, neither software nor hardware.

    2022.16 to fix the boot!

    How unusual for Tesla to spend so long to test a software change. They can push out heat pump software changes within days, yet the complexity of a boot strut takes months.

    Twitter's new owner

    You quoted a post I never made, maybe you had a bit of copy and paste issues. I have no interest in twitter or Elon Musk to have any option at all.

    Yep, or the breath of the increasingly frustrated owner.

    [UK] 2022.12.x

    Yep, tried that many times unfortunately. The only pattern I've noticed, it always opens when I use the app but not always when I press the button.

    [UK] 2022.12.x

    I'm on 2022.12.3.1 and had the boot stop opening half way again this morning. It's still not fixed.

    Multiple warning messages

    I wonder what the insurance situation is as well, a condition of insurance is that the car is road worthy. Those faults would trigger a MOT failure on an older car. I would certainly put things in writing to Tesla, email addresses can be found in this forum. Even if it doesn't get an...

    Elon Musk: A future worth getting excited about

    If that's the only criteria, then I can make my own FSD car tomorrow. It also needs to get from a to b, not damage itself or property, not scare the passengers, cope with any situation without deadlock, etc.

    Is my sound system working correctly?

    Yes, you should hear something when close to each speaker albeit those speakers are very subtle. I've only noticed audio from the upper A pillar speakers when immersive sound is on (not always when set to "auto" however). My caveat here is that I'm using either Tidal or a USB stick for music...

    Is my sound system working correctly?

    Have you got immersive sound enabled. I think the upper A pillar speakers, at least, are only used when immersive sound is enabled.

    Blown pyro fuse & PCS in a new car?

    If that was their exact wording, they have told you nonsense unfortunately. That's like saying a light bulb blew because the electric supply pushed too much current (amps) to it. An over voltage issue might be different, but not current.

    Highway Code: Watching TV in self-driving cars to be allowed…

    I never said the car did learn, which is actually part of the problem as the future is federated learning. The learning is done back at Tesla, the model is constantly retrained from ever increasing datasets. If there is no learning anywhere, it's not machine learning. Plus I was not talking...

    Highway Code: Watching TV in self-driving cars to be allowed…

    It's very frustrating. Even in the USA, where the progress is, it still drives rather like a learner driver. The car isn't learning as quickly as a human, despite Tesla's AI claims. It will happen, but often with technology there is an initial breakthrough which solves many problems but...

    [UK] 2022.12.x

    I just checked and mine is very different when nobody is sat in the passenger seat. However.. I've found that if I click on the left side of the climate control screen, on the picture of the passenger vent, it then equals the heating on both sides until the car is next locked. The display...

    How concerned are you about the warranty (or lack thereof)?

    Maybe I've been lucky previously, my previous car (not a Tesla) had LED headlights and one was changed under a 3rd party extended warranty without issue. It was the only warranty claim in the life of the car.

    How concerned are you about the warranty (or lack thereof)?

    Even looking back and counting only the first year of ownership, I've had 8 warranty claims and total cost would have been in the thousands. The headlights change alone cost more than any extended warranty. So... Understandably I am very concerned if I ever I keep the car outside of warranty...

    [Repair] Just bumped into someone in the car park…

    The M3 is stronger there than I imagined, by the sound of the other car. Sorry to hear about this, it's always a gutting experience. But everyone is safe, that's what matters. After the paint and rubber from the other car is polished off your car, that could just be a smart repair job over...
