    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Not sure when it ended, but you are not wrong. I was one of those.

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    Fair enough. I think it is a matter of degree. Stand your ground, for sure. But sometimes getting angry is just a waste of energy. Especially with anonymous people on the interwebs.

    I love snowflakes! Check out my barn! I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of your new car! :D

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    Well, I've been attacked now by you and others. And you haven't stopped. Should I take my marbles and go home? Or just let it roll off my Teflon cape? As I pointed out, I never questioned the veracity of these posters myself, but reserved judgement. Yet you treat me as though I have called them...

    Tow package worth buying for one time use and then never again?

    Might be even cheaper to just rent a UHaul or other truck, or borrow a friend's truck and drive it one way. Otherwise, hitch mount bike rack, ski rack, hitch mount cooler rack, boat... We pulled a UHaul from Michigan to Idaho. It was fine. Plan to use the hitch for a lot of other things, however.

    Coronavirus

    https://www.rutgers.edu/news/trust-clinical-covid-19-signs-over-negative-rt-pcr-test I think I would assume positivity and behave that way regardless of the PCR and Antigen tests.

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    Excuse me, but I never accused anyone of making something up, so where was I "wrong"? Please share if I am mistaken. People showed up here with good news and were treated with healthy skepticism, and were disappointed. Some of them took immediate umbrage. Don't take it personally. That's all I...

    I didn't say anything toxic about your good news. Settle down.

    Man, stop taking this so personally. Nobody knows you yet here, so it isn't about you. All we know about you after 14 posts is that you have a sensitive nature.

    Software update date is not aligned with current date

    Seemed to correct itself for me a day after downloading 2022.16.1.2 three days ago. Downloaded 2022.16.2 last night and it is correct this morning.

    A lot of truth in there. Unfortunately, corporations have more rights than people.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Interesting that this "news" item from Sawyer is almost completely the regurgitation of a thread from TMC.

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    That would describe my car, except the order date. It will be very interesting to learn the details of what differs. Looking forward to your posting them.

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    Not quite a year, here. Around when I placed the order. Tremendous amount of education prior to getting the car. There's lots of activity in the waiting room threads which should tell us how many people join prior to getting their car. It's a lot!

    Dash Cam Not Working Check USB

    I find it fascinating that it's been fixed for me and others for a month and yet for many people like you it is still an issue.

    Regenerative braking setting in V. 2022.16.1.1

    https://www.notateslaapp.com/software-updates/version/2022.16.2/release-notes "Note: This feature appears to be in testing and is not available for production vehicles." I guess we can stop guessing. 🤷‍♂️

    software update 2022.16.1.1

    FYI re: blended brakes https://www.notateslaapp.com/software-updates/version/2022.16.2/release-notes "Note: This feature appears to be in testing and is not available for production vehicles." Oh well. Maybe someday.

    Settle down, Grasshopper. Your edited screenshot describes my car and probably thousands of other blue MYLRs belonging to members here and obtained over the last several years. Be patient and don't take it personally. We are twice bitten, thrice shy on this sort of thing.

    software update 2022.16.1.1

    Updated to 16.1.2 this week. Alas, no blended brake option. Maybe they are rare birds. Still says it's up to date as of June 12. Weird bug.

    I still have not had a problem with the red x since last month.

    Yes, I upgraded yesterday to 16.1.2 and it still shows Jun12 as last check, same as it has been since June 12.

    Another price increase

    100% agree it will be a rare situation where the numbers make sense. For me, it was the challenge of hearing an Idaho Power yuppity yup with a home here declare it is impossible to do net zero solar in our snowy mountain town. Just had to do it!
  23. DrGriz

    Another price increase

    This is roughly our situation. When we installed solar panels 4 years ago, we basically covered the available south facing roof. The calculated production roughly matched our usage. We did not have an EV at the time, but we did do some things to reduce our overall usage (thermostat settings...

    range anxiety

    Yeah, the heat pump. Last year in the worst of winter there were some serious heat pump failures. Supposedly fixed with software, but we've heard that before. I would suspect that at rest at those temperatures the heat pump would have to rely on the motors to generate any significant cabin heat.

    Dash Cam Not Working Check USB

    I have not seen the problem for almost a month. On 12.3.12 since 5/25. It did happen once after I installed 12.3.12, but not since. Standard Tesla stick.

    What exactly does “Trailer mode” do.

    I 2nd the range calibration point. It ought to be able to do that.
  27. DrGriz

    range anxiety

    It's not a matter of the battery. I just wouldn't want to be in a car at -25C if I could avoid it!
  28. DrGriz

    range anxiety

    Totally if at all possible OP should keep his car plugged in, even at 110 with an extension cord. I would not take off in temps of -25C without preconditioning unless I was going to the emergency room!
  29. DrGriz

    range anxiety

    A cold battery will cost you a little range. You need to warm it up before you take off. But we're talking no more than 2% or so over 36 hours, unless you put it into sentry mode. That will cost a little more.
  30. DrGriz

    What exactly does “Trailer mode” do.

    I wondered about that as well, but the issue is supposed to be only providing 12 volt power to trailer accessories (like a refrigerator), not the lights. But, who knows for sure? Maybe someone out there with the Lithium harness can weigh in.
  31. DrGriz

    What exactly does “Trailer mode” do.

    I have exactly the same software, 2022 vehicle but the old harness (12V Lead acid battery). Factory hitch. The screenshot is with no trailer attached. I am able to put it in trailer mode as shown. Perhaps you can put in a service request and they can push a software update to you remotely. I...

    range anxiety

    Where are you planning on going in the winter? How far and how often? Just like with an ICE vehicle, winter driving range is reduced, especially if you are going up and over multiple mountain passes. Fast chargers are further apart, however. Do you have to reliably and routinely travel over 300...

    what can cause 800-900Wh/mi result in consumption graph?

    I will vote for up a hill, or facsimile thereof, as it looks just like what we saw while driving uphill against the wind in Nebraska and Wyoming.

    Coronavirus

    I'm guessing that there was nothing to do in Wyo for the last few months and suddenly ~summer came and people showed up. I passed through 6 weeks ago and there was no reason to stop except to charge. Hotel parking lots were empty.
  35. DrGriz

    software update 2022.16.1.1

    Don't have it yet, but I recall someone driving in Wyoming who had it and reported. It displayed wind and temp in the UI and prediction was accurate to about 1%. Wind in Wyo is a serious factor.

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I have learned to hold the wheel with both hands asymmetrically, left hand at 11:00, right hand at 3:00 or 4:00. It isn't always perfect, because you get tired of holding in the same position. But it works and I'll switch sides to make it interesting. At least I don't have to think about tugging...

    Software update date is not aligned with current date

    That's really useful. So it IS checking, just literally not updating the date of the check in the UI.

    Climate Change / Global Warming Discussion

    Now it's both sidism?

    Climate Change / Global Warming Discussion

    What Salk Institute of Oceanography? The Salk Institute studies biologicals. Jonas Salk was famous for the Salk polio vaccine. I am not sure your memory is serving you well. If rather you are talking about the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, they seem to be pretty clear about the...

    Unfortunately, there are many who don't seem to be susceptible to logic and facts. They are visceral thinkers. A few centuries ago these same folks were insisting that the world is flat and persecuting Galileo.

    New 2022 Model 3 has "VCFRONT a192" issue

    This is normal. Cold temps prevent regen braking, and especially so when your battery is relatively charged up. Once the battery warms and has room to accept regenerative braking, it works fine. Since we have 40 degrees or colder every morning here, so far this year, it always happens to us...

    Horses, dogs, and deers(sp), oh my!

    I have a spot on my drive home where sometimes the car screams emergency and hits the brakes. The visualization is of a person. But it is actually a power pole at the top of a hill on the side of the road. I don't think the visualizations are that exact. Something with four legs can be a dog...

    Horses, dogs, and deers(sp), oh my!

    We have hundreds of mule deer wandering around in our small town. It would be a rare day you don't have to slow down for one (or, usually, more) deer crossing the street. Less often, dogs. Way more common than fire trucks. But there's no reason not to do both.

    2200 mile round trip drive: M3LR or ICE?

    It's a big difference. Plus, you are going uphill. Don't be afraid though, you can always slow down a little and get back range if that's an issue. We were able to do it with those kind of winds pulling a 1000 lb trailer. Just count on stopping at all of the Superchargers in Wyo.

    Say, did you happen to read Michael Crichton's book "State of Fear?" Because your ideas sound an awful lot like his. I've read it. Really enjoyed his other works of fiction.

    Climate Change / Global Warming Discussion

    Your information is out of date. And while sometimes due to climate change some glaciers (change in major weather patterns) do grow for a while, on the whole glaciers are going away, and on a human timescale, not a matter of eons, as you put forth earlier...

    Right. He developed the political strategy for the entire world. For decades. That's what you think? Think again. And why would such a strategy persist if it wasn't founded in reality? No, that is absolutely a nutbag conspiracy theory.

    Climate Change / Global Warming Discussion

    The government owned scientist stuff is conspiracy theory nonsense. Sorry @tangible1, Al Gore doesn't have the money to hire every climate scientist all over the world for generations and make them do his personal bidding.
