    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    I haven't been following this thread lately since I've lost 20+ miles of range after a firmware update. I haven't charged to 90% in a while, but the other day I ended up going that route. I was quite surprised to see my range has gone back up significantly. I think I've lost 3 or 4 miles now...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    They reinstalled the firmware on mine the first time and within a month it was dead without them even looking at it and said I needed a new MCU. They didn't charge me the first time but got reamed when I got replacement. Good to know that I should get a refund though.

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    Had to find my post that had the invoice. It was just under $3k. Just noticed that the invoice said the 12V battery would not hold a charge. I got the battery back due to me requesting it and when I hooked it up to my multimeter, it was still at 12V. Does anyone know where to get the battery...

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    So Tesla is now offering to replace just the daughterboard rather than the whole MCU for a much reduced price? [email protected]#$#@$!! Anybody have any luck getting a refund for Tesla unnecessarily raping me for replacement MCU and 12V battery that IMO wasn't needed?

    Supercharger - Elk Grove, CA - Elk Grove Blvd. (LIVE 21 Jul 2020, 16 V3 stalls)

    Story time... So I get to the Supercharger today to charge and notice a big pickup truck with a huge camper in tow. The guy was working underneath it but he was blocking multiple Tesla Superchargers so I approach him with my mask on and tell him that he's blocking the chargers for other cars...

    Replaced MCU, Tesla wants to keep part of my old MCU (need legal argument)

    No. I told them I would not pay for the part once they told me there would be a core charge even though they said otherwise earlier. The issue is always the same being the eMMC is worn due to Tesla cheaping out on parts and excessive logging of data. So it's not a matter of if the MCU will...

    Electrified Garage did a video yesterday detailing the whole step and some shortcuts.

    Supercharger - Sacramento, CA - Freeport Blvd. (LIVE 29 Sep 2020, 8 V3 stalls)

    Funny how you mentioned nothing was to be done anything soon. I drove by that same day but about 5PM and they dug in that area. Kinda hard to see when it's shrunk down. Don't mind the bird poop or bug guts on the windshield.

    Supercharger - Elk Grove, CA - Elk Grove Blvd. (LIVE 21 Jul 2020, 16 V3 stalls)

    I drove by this afternoon and saw a little of the yellow tape still around. Didn't see any Teslas so I assume it isn't up.

    Supercharger - Sacramento, CA - Arden Way (LIVE 11 Aug 2018, 19 urban stalls)

    These are 72kW Urban chargers though. Anyway, noticed they still have issues with certain stalls where it doesn't charge or is very slow to charge. If it is a preventative maintenance issue, I'm all for it.

    Supercharger - Folsom, CA - Iron Point Rd. (4 V2 stalls)

    I noticed on the way there was there was no status indicator showing how many stalls are available on the map. Just a little further down the road, it showed the Palladio status so I know it wasn't my car. I was also surprised that there were no other Teslas charging as this was on a Saturday...

    Supercharger - Folsom, CA - Iron Point Rd. (4 V2 stalls)

    Damage I found in stalls 3 and 4 when I arrived. Back and front images of stall 3. Less damage in stall 4. No excuse as you only pull forward and these are easiest of the stalls to park in.

    Supercharger - Elk Grove, CA - Elk Grove Blvd. (LIVE 21 Jul 2020, 16 V3 stalls)

    Looks like they're installing the pedestals today. This was zoomed 4x digital from where I was standing.

    Supercharger - Elk Grove, CA - Elk Grove Blvd. (LIVE 21 Jul 2020, 16 V3 stalls)

    Does anyone know why the parking spaces closest to the Superchargers have cars there all the time? I stopped by there on the weekend and saw at least 5 commuter vans. Normally Superchargers are out of the way of other frequently parked spaces which is why I haven't seen ICEing in NoCal.

    Supercharger - Elk Grove, CA - Elk Grove Blvd. (LIVE 21 Jul 2020, 16 V3 stalls)

    Never cared for that shopping center. The last time I went to Fuji Sushi Buffet, the parking lot was pretty packed even with an hour before closing. It's a madhouse when they put out the raw oysters, the customers rush over like cockroaches and grab everything they can in sight. It's pretty...

    Makes me wonder if I can drop that 4G SIM card into a phone now and have it work.

    Replaced MCU, Tesla wants to keep part of my old MCU (need legal argument)

    Not sure what to tell you if they're charging $1k core fee now. You're basically at their mercy. And if the MCUv2 ever comes out for our cars, you would want that rather than the original MCU which is already refurbished. They made me buy another 12V battery too even though I explicitly told...

    Supercharger - Sacramento, CA - Freeport Blvd. (LIVE 29 Sep 2020, 8 V3 stalls)

    I was hoping more by Dutch Brothers just before the mouth of the Freeway heading north. Going east of Elk Grove Blvd is a nightmare to maneuver especially if you need to turn around. The traffic is horrid with single lanes going into Old Elk Grove.

    Supercharger - Sacramento, CA - Freeport Blvd. (LIVE 29 Sep 2020, 8 V3 stalls)

    I know that's not the exact placement but you can be assured that it will be closer to 99 than 5 though.
  21. CuriousG

    Supercharger - Sacramento, CA - Freeport Blvd. (LIVE 29 Sep 2020, 8 V3 stalls)

    Tesla's updated map suggests there will be one near 99 in Elk Grove.

    Supercharger - Lincoln, CA (LIVE 14 Oct 2020, 8 V3 stalls)

    Weird that Tesla has updated their Supercharger maps for 2020 and they don't even show this one being planned. Whereas they list a future site for South Sacramento and Elk Grove. edit: Looks like the South Sacramento one is actually going to be on Freeport Blvd near South Land Park and under...

    Trading my TM3 for a TM3

    This is exactly the reason why I didn't even consider FSD before the recent $1k price hike. I debated it since it would upgrade my AP 2.5 to 3 but in the end, all I'm getting is cones displaying on the MCU and smaller files for Sentry because of CODEC they use in HW3. You can get into a wreck...

    Cybertruck Poll

    I was thinking of changing the poll to include a "Yes, but not planning on purchasing" but alas I don't think I can edit the poll.

    Trading my TM3 for a TM3

    My point was since product was not delivered, they should transfer to a new car. You basically threw another $6k out the window. I doubt they will resell that car with the feature included.
  26. CuriousG

    Trading my TM3 for a TM3

    Did they transfer your FSD over to the new car or did you have to buy it all over again even though the original FSD was never delivered? Why not post some pictures of your panel gaps?

    Cybertruck Poll

    If you change your vote, that in effect is an adjusted impression.

    Cybertruck Poll

    I believe I left it so that you can change your vote so there's no need for another poll. Maybe it should have been a Pyramid. Because the only people that could have built it was the Egyptians and way before it's time.

    Maybe it's just Franz being weak?

    Cybertruck Poll

    I'm wondering why they didn't show inside the truck. Guess when they give rides, there will be videos of that out. It was pretty funny watching Elon standing in front of the door trying to cover up the cracked window only to exacerbate the issue when he tells Franz to crack the other window too.

    Cybertruck Poll

    That was quick to get a disagree in a minute of posting poll and 12 responses to poll already. Please suggest another question to add to poll if it doesn't fit your needs and I'll see if I can edit.

    I think Elon should have done some design polling first.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    People may tag it as funny but it is a reasonable one considering Tesla isn't selling new MCUs anymore and use the refurb option to take back your original MCU unless you're lucky and get away with them not charging you a core fee. YMMV in other states but in California they are allowed to...

    Preventive eMMC replacement on MCU1

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Seats both front and rears with rears being much more comfortable AP2.5 -> AP3 hardware Alcantara headliner -> whatever the fabric is now Leather steering wheel -> vegan leather Glass roof coating EAP broken up to FSD package Those are the things that come to mind.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    So once again, SC doesn't know what they are talking about. How does Tesla explain why they will warranty the MCU for 4 years when it is replaced but will not do so when original ownership is under 4 yrs but mileage has exceeded the original warranty.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I specifically asked about this and asked for it in writing when I got my refurbished unit and was quoted 1yr or 12k miles, whichever comes first. According to my Tesla Service Center, it is specifically stated on the back of the estimate or the last page.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    This is the first thing I would do (test charging) if an MCU dies as I learned the hard way. I had to get car towed on my dime.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I think this is case by case by service centers. California probably has their whole fleet coverage from Enterprise. When I had my MCU replaced, they had my car for 6 days. Well actually 5 but I didn't want to drive out there when they told me it was done. In actuality, it probably took more...

    There is no small cosmetic damage in a Tesla at least in cost to repair. Backed into from parking lot less than 5mph and dent on driver side passenger door. Result? Replaced door, repainted adjoining panels to color match. Rear ended on freeway after person behind was not paying attention...

    Likely MCU Failure (MCU1 eMMC)

    Have you tried calling Tesla lately? Unless your car has recently been in for service and you have a previous extension they have given out, you'll have a hard time getting to talk to someone.

    Likely MCU Failure (MCU1 eMMC)

    Does this require a SC visit or can this be done via mobile service? I think this may be the post you're looking for and it appears mobile service can fix it. Tesla app won't work correctly

    Likely MCU Failure (MCU1 eMMC)

    Calling all people with replacement MCUs, just found out that my Tesla App doesn't work for door unlock, frunk open and trunk open. It goes through the motion and doesn't display any kind of error message and even momentarily displays your car with frunk or trunk open if you hit those buttons...
