    Frunk LED Light Strip for Model 3 or Y

    for model Y and if you have time to play around. I would attach another spare shorter LED or a 5w bulb or more extreme to disable the light bulb inside the switch to give it a try.

    Frunk LED Light Strip for Model 3 or Y

    It could be the power sucking from the LED wire triggers the error. the 12v should draw around 1A, I am thinking 10watt total from 2.6meter LED strip. Anyway, if you want to keep the LED, suggest to buy a LED controller with brightness adjustment, see if the 50% brightness would keep the...

    Is there a clean way to tap into Model 3 frunk lights?

    you might ask EVoffer for actual design of their power frunk module. From what I know I can trip the car efuse and still get the frunk switch to click. I have a sense the module is not giving enough or simply stop working with extra power from the LED. There are 4 issues I encountered after...

    Frunk LED Light Strip for Model 3 or Y

    gee...that RGB LED strip light is weak as hell. I have encountered 2 problems with model Y power frunk. 1) EV offer frunk, the physical frunk button becomes not useable 2) Taobao generic frunk, the wires are skinnier than other kits, the LED brightness was cut half. by the way, I bought some...

    Is there a clean way to tap into Model 3 frunk lights?

    can the frunk switch light up? if not, it could be e-fuse triggered You might try another 12v source to get the LED strips. I have never seen a blown LED strip before.

    Model 3 lowered - How many of you guys are using Camber Arms in the rear?

    my Mazda 5 running almost zero toe and -2.2 front and -2.5 rear with Kumho PS91, very even wear, mostly driven in town only. my Model 3 running almost zero toe and -1.0 front and -1.0 rear with Falken FK510, the MPP rear camber arm becomes handy to make both side camber even. I don't see the...

    Is there a clean way to tap into Model 3 frunk lights?

    what year is your M3? pre-facelift uses VW 3pin connectors, pretty easy to find and very cheap. I made my own extended core, no wiring cutting required. Parts no: 1-968700-1 The newer connector is 4pin, can't find the parts number online.

    Upgraded my Frunk lights

    Only to the frunk light wires...just stay away from the purple wire on the 3 pin connector. The middle wire is negative and wire on the other end is positive. LED isn't polarity sensitive, either it lights up or don't. If both neg and pos touch each other, e-fuse will be trigger but will...

    Upgraded my Frunk lights

    Hannshow kit is not available in my town, so can't test it. In general model 3 seems okay. the LED strips aren't expensive, just buy one and take 10 minutes to give it a try.

    Added LED lights to frunk! But switched stop working ?

    imo, this doesn't look good as the frunk, power source can tap to the existing LED wires.

    Added LED lights to frunk! But switched stop working ?

    I have been asked many times...but why for the trunk? the LED likely will be crushed by the trunk. If you find the existing trunk LED to be dim, just add some ebay LED.

    Added LED lights to frunk! But switched stop working ?

    yes, I installed a lot of these LED strips...it just won't work with EV offer power frunk kit for model Y. Known problem, seems like the power frunk module doesn't support additional power.

    Upgraded my Frunk lights

    I see you have a model Y and installed their power frunk. Most likely not working, I did talk to Warren from TeslaOffer about it, maybe a relay could fix it. You might check out with him.

    Coilovers and alignment question

    Always find the best alignment guy in town to tune your suspension. It was day and night even though this shop charged me around 50% more than other shops I used to go. The tires immediately go so much smoother, mileage increases for sure.

    Alcantara roof and steering wheel

    it is slightly darker than the door panel piece, same colour as the dash. As for the handled by bare skin, there are different types for street use. The one I pick has very good grip, better than buy it online and could not try it before paying. I also wrapped the door sills, B-pillars...

    M3 LR vs M3P vs MS P85D

    when I was in my early 20s, couldn't afford a fast car. I had a beater and a USD5000 used Yamaha R6. Worked my ass off for almost 15 yrs to afford a house, a family, and 2 cars. None of my cars before Tesla worth more than 10k. if you buy a P90D, but you have to lower your living quality, just...

    Subwoofer box

    I did all sound deadening and audio upgrade by myself a year ago, and recently paid someone to do alcantara roof + roof pillars sound deadening. I have to say the car now is much quieter than ever, the roof used to be rattling like crazy with the heavy bass, the sound deadening material could...

    Worst PPF Ever

    I can do better than him at home with zero experience lol. anyway, complain it to ceramic pro and demand your car to be taken care by someone else. No fricky way it should be done like this.

    Alcantara roof and steering wheel

    I don't work or sponsored for this shop, but a happy customer only. Since I bought the car in 2019 I already want to wrap the roof and steering wheel with alcantara. This is what should come out right from the factory. Not every piece can turn dark grey, but I am super satisfied with the...

    Pic of your Model 3.......RIGHT NOW! [model 3 pictures thread]

    I am helping my friends to install by following the youtube video above. It's simple 10 minutes wiring to the frunk button (no, I did not disconnect the battery LOL) . It looks absolutely awesome.

    Sound Deadening Model 3

    the major noise of my car is from the suspension, I filled the entire trunk with deadening materials, not in particular these holes. Road / rattling / motor noise are significant lowered, but not cutting them all.

    Few metal clips under the center speaker grill fell behind the dash.

    Just a drop of super glue. Grab a piler to pull it out

    Is it possible to increase the volume of the OEM subwoofer?

    yeah, everything is complete and perfect with amp + sub. Now with Tidal, it's so awesome. The JL was refurbished, but re-coiled by professional, after it was blown I didn't bother to re-coil again and ordered Kicker CompR 8" DVC for $90. Re-coil costed me about the same as buying the kicker...
