    Tesla Service

    I've had my Model Y for a little over a year and have developed a few issues. I scheduled an appointment at the service center and have a few questions. Is it normal for Tesla to send cost estimates for things that SHOULD be warrantied? I don't understand why they do this. For example, my...

    2nd Row automatically reclining without touching the button

    This is an odd one. I have a 7 seater and I've noticed when driving around with just passengers in the 2nd row, everything is fine. But when I put my 6 year old in the 3rd row and slide the 2nd row forward, while we're driving, the 2nd row (on the driver's side) will engage the recline motor...

    7-seater 2nd row seat noise

    I'm having this exact problem. Glad I'm not alone. Going to schedule a service appointment.

    Tesla Wall Connector - TERRIBLE SOFTWARE!

    Yeah, I definitely wouldn't want to mess with an adapter and not having the button to press to unlock the charger. Whenever I use my adapter I always forget how to unlock the charger to get the adapter off. It's a pain and I don't want to deal with it. I have 34 wifi devices on my network...

    Tesla Wall Connector - TERRIBLE SOFTWARE!

    No rules. the password is rather simple with no special characters and I confirmed my network is NOT using WPA3. SO WEIRD. The wall charger can see my main network, but it just refuses to connect even when I'm 100% confident I type the right password. As for the firmware, I cycled the...

    Tesla Wall Connector - TERRIBLE SOFTWARE!

    After mulling it over for a few weeks I decided to buy a new Gen 3 Tesla Wall Connector. I got it installed, turned the circuit on and then went to configure it. Then the problems started rolling in. For starters, I scanned the QR code on the side and my phone said "no data". So I decided...

    NEMA 14-60 plug on a HPWC?

    Yeah, I added the GFCI breaker myself a few years back. I plan to keep it there unless I have to remove it ...depending on how I decide to install my HPWC. I appreciate all the help you've been...given me a lot to think about. I think (at least initially) I'm just going to wire the NEMA...

    NEMA 14-60 plug on a HPWC?

    2 reasons: I already have a 50 amp circuit I can run my HPWC from. If I'm going to run another circuit, I might as well max it out. Is it code though? When I built the house in 2009, it didn't have a GFCI breaker. I added that when I started brewing with the outlet (for safety). The outlet...

    NEMA 14-60 plug on a HPWC?

    Something like this? https://www.homedepot.com/p/Square-D-Homeline-1-30-Amp-2-Pole-1-50-Amp-2-Pole-Quad-Tandem-Circuit-Breaker-HOMT230250CP/311939386#product-overview I guess I could take that run my dryer (30 amp) and wall outlet (50 amp) on that and then that will free up a slot to run a...

    NEMA 14-60 plug on a HPWC?

    Right. I thought of that after I posted. The problem is, my 50 amp circuit is on my main panel... they're all "big" circuits. 60 amp Furnace 35 amp AC 50 amp Range 60 amp Interior subpanel 30 amp Dryer 50 amp NEMA 14-50 outlet Obviously I can't do anything with the interior panel since it's...

    NEMA 14-60 plug on a HPWC?

    I do not...until now. Oh my gosh. This is brilliant... and could allow me to retain a 50 amp for my existing plug and then run a 60amp hardwire for the HPWC. The question is, do the tandems comes in 50 and 60 amp variety? I only see them in 15 and 20 amp.

    NEMA 14-60 plug on a HPWC?

    Interesting complication... My brewing rig is actually a 240V 30amp system. It has an integrated 30amp breaker and plugs into my existing 50amp circuit. ...but all that aside... The 50amp breaker in my main panel is GFCI (because of the brewery). I know the HPWC has built in GFCI...

    NEMA 14-60 plug on a HPWC?

    I only brew a few times per year. This would be no different than how often I plug/unplug my mobile charger. Interesting idea about the A/B switch... I actually have a A/B switch on the brewery controller that I use but it's only supporting <30amps of current. I like the idea, but looking...

    I know. But I also know you can wire a plug pretty easily.

    NEMA 14-60 plug on a HPWC?

    I have a NEMA 14-50 outlet in my garage that I use for changing my car AND running my brewing equipment. I recently ordered a Tesla HPWC and obviously want to get the most I can from it, but that would require upgrading my circuit to 60 amps. I verified that the wire is 4 awg, so I should be...

    Has Autopilot gotten super conservative lately?!

    I’ve had my car since Feb 2021. It seems like about 2 months ago, my Autopilot has gotten extremely conservative. For example, let’s say I’m cruising along at 70 mph (speed limit). I approach a car in front of me going slower (40mph). My car will obviously slow down and match the speed. When...

    Model Y Going into "Deep" Sleep?

    Well, glad I'm not alone here! I just quit my Tesla app and reopened but still just "spun" trying to wake up the car. Nothing. I am an iPhone user if that helps. My car has 2021.4.18.2 and I've noticed even when I get into the car, the screen is dark and takes several seconds to "wake up"...

    Model Y Going into "Deep" Sleep?

    This is weird. I've had my Y since February 2021 and haven't had any issues. I've already put 8,000+ miles on it and driven it on a 1,000 mile road rip (each way). About 2 weeks ago I went on a trip to Nashville and left my Y at home in the garage (plugged in). I couldn't wake my car at all...

    Kid's Booster Seat

    GREAT. I love the fact that the rigid latches lock the seat in place so it doesn't move around. It's super easy to install and remove as well. The only downsides to the seat... while the bottom is more narrow, the back is still pretty wide, so putting my kids 3 across in the 2nd row is...

    Ride Quality of Tesla Model Y

    Unpopular opinion: I enjoy the ride of the Model Y with my 20" inductions. I've always preferred a tight suspension over a loose and bouncy ride. I see people suggesting aftermarket coilovers but those will probably have the same if not higher spring rates so...it's not really going to make...

    Autopilot and Trust

    I actually just took the car out to run some errands and tried the scroll wheel "flick" when traffic was stopped up ahead. This really helped. I guess I thought AP would just know how I'd like to drive (joking of course)... but having the ability to at least slow down sooner really makes...

    Autopilot and Trust

    Wow. I'm glad I'm not alone here. Wasn't sure what to expect from others. I will say that I'm learning to trust AP more, but still haven't been able to trust those "stopped traffic ahead" scenarios. I KNOW the car will stop, but I don't like last minute hard braking when it can be avoided...

    Autopilot and Trust

    I’ve had my car since mid February and have already taken a few short trips which have allowed me to get some seat time with Autopilot. I’m definitely a picky driver and enjoy being in control, so this took some getting used to. Had a few thoughts... For general highway driving at consistent...

    Tesla Paint Repair Kit - BEST Application Process Discovered!!

    The default instructions are so unnecessarily complicated. The squeegee is by far the dumbest tool in the box. I knew there had to be a better process. Let me know how yours turns out.

    Tesla Paint Repair Kit - BEST Application Process Discovered!!

    2 weeks after taking delivery of my Multi Coat Red Model Y, I pulled my car into the garage nose first and opened the hatch. The hatch hit the garage door and I earned my first two chips right on the hatch lid. A couple weeks later, during a short weekend trip to Dallas, some mysterious road...

    2021 Factory tint?

    This is what my reputable tint shop told me as well. It's just privacy glass. No UV protection or heat blocking. So...I had them put clear UV film on the rear windows because I didn't want it any darker, but wanted the protection.

    Tesla service, what a joke!! Extremely frustrated.

    I picked up one of those air compressor / sealant kits recently. I want options if I'm stuck out in the middle of nowhere or have difficulties with roadside assistance. I hate the fact that there's not a number I can call to immediately get a hold of someone. I'll still keep roadside...

    What do you do if your Tesla is stolen?

    THANK YOU. I know we often times joke that our cars are "spaceships", but the truth is... they're JUST CARS. Chasing down your Tesla to confront your thieves sounds ridiculous and dangerous. Call the police. Report the car stolen. Offer that you can tell them exactly where it is and see...

    Curious... is there any reason it can’t be mounted vertically as opposed to horizontal? I didn’t see anything stating that would cause issues.

    Should I full ppf my new white model y?

    You're SPOT ON. I'm in a very similar situation... I have 3 kids and have been driving long enough to know that no matter what you protect, something will still find a way of getting damaged. Case and point: I spent $1600 on full front PPF. 1 week later I pulled into my garage nose first and...

    TxTag Placement?

    Where is everyone putting their TxTag? I hear just to the right (passenger side) of the mirror. Caveat: I tinted my windshield, but my car wash rfid seems to work through it.

    Yikes... I hope “summer” means definitely early June, because that’s when we’ll be rolling through. April to June is a lot of time to just wrap things up when it looks ready to go.

    Paint repair of scratches from road debris

    I actually got my Tesla touch up paint kit today and gave it a go. Not terribly impressed with this kit. I think I need to add a few more layers. It’s definitely better that it used to be but only maybe 25-35% less noticeable. I caught a rock on my driver door as well so I had to touch that up...

    Oh man... just reading that made my blood pressure rise. So what happened at your VRBO where you couldn't get juice? I assume you were using a mobile charger? What was the problem? It's these edge case scenarios that definitely worry me, but with a little preparation, I'm not worried to...

    Should I full ppf my new white model y?

    Having gone through the exact same questions in my head, I feel I can safely give accurate and relevant advice on this topic. Buy as much PPF as you can afford or are willing to spend. I paid $1600 for a full frontal suntek PPF. It was a plotted install as opposed to bulk. 60% of the edges...

    Can we talk about Tesla paint real quick?

    That's a great explanation and sounds about right. Would that mean that after a period of time, the paint WILL cure and receive less of these delicate scratches? (in theory)

    Can we talk about Tesla paint real quick?

    I picked up a Multi-coat Red Model Y on February 13th. It came in great condition. The gaps were consistent (within 1mm at least) and the paint looked stunning. I took the car home and dropped it off for a full frontal PPF and tint the following week. I've been driving the car for the past...

    Noise reduction kits worthwhiled?

    I'm curious...are y'all experiencing THAT much wind noise on your cars? I have a Y and I guess I hear a little wind noise on the highway, but it's nothing different than what I'm used to hearing on any car.

    I dunno... Poteet strawberry festival isn't that exciting. If you're coming down, check out Wurstfest in the fall in New Braunfels or Fiesta in the Spring in San Antonio. Sherwood Forest Faire in Lockhart also in the spring. All way better than Poteet.

    Supercharger - Clayton, NM

    Wow -- this progress looks like it won't be long at all! Maybe a couple weeks? We're planning a road trip to Colorado in the summer and the Amarillo to Trinidad stretch is doable in my LR Y, but I don't like cutting things so closely. We like to stop and recharge often. I imagine this...

    Ear pain/Pressure help

    Just wanted to follow up on this. I followed these exact instructions and reset all of my stoppers and then adjusted them out until they were all balanced. I think this got me to about 90% reduction in pressure issues as well. It's not completely gone, but it's drastically improved to the...
