    Evie EV charging networks

    It is a little bizarre considering with the Eastern Freeway and Tunnel etc you'd like it'd be a good middle point etc.. Western Ring Road has Chargefox AirPort West, Evie Bundoora in close location to the Highway etc also.

    Tesla Model Y in Australia

    My Best Mate just saw a Transporter with a Black and Red Model Y running into Burnley Tunnel in Melbourne heading somewhere. He drives a Model 3 so would know the difference between 3 and Y on a Truck. Maybe they are going to Richmond ;)

    Energy retailers asking customers to leave

    I had similar messages/emails from Electricity in a Box over the weekend also.

    Supercharger - Gawler, SA - Q2 2023

    I think unfortunately it's probably a missed opportunity for Gawler. I'd suggest they'd probably look at Alternative locations or skip the site entirely. If Paul Koch was the person speaking against the motion, his understanding of the fast charging landscape seemed very limited for a former...

    Model X - 12volt battery died

    @EcoCloudIT: I wouldn't think the search is impossible. Looking at the Ohmmu Battery Specs in indicates their Model X LiPo4 Battery is 190mm x 121mm x 205mm NS40LMF Batteries have similar dimensions of 182mm x 127mm x 199mm These are commonly used in latest Gen Prius etc... Obviously the AGM...

    Repair/Parts wait times

    I took it as a Joke/Reflection on the Model Y Wait Times... Maybe Jdizzl11 should be apologising for not releasing that not everyone in the World has sweet delicious Model Y's available to order. Especially those succulent Texan Bred 4680 Dual Motor models... Hmmmm,...

    Model X - 12volt battery died

    There appears to be an issue with the Supply of Tesla Batteries into the Country at the moment. I remember when I first got my Model S I had a "Dead" 12V Battery and being impatient I managed to rig up something with a Generic Century Small Battery. (Although I did secure it using Ratchet...

    Starlink in Oz

    Yeap it's a toggle option in settings on the StarLink account.

    Starlink in Oz

    They have enabled the Portability option now for $35 a month so moving StarLink is possible.

    Model S giving much grief

    @eclectricdave: What Particular Model is your car?

    Name your favourite Non-Tesla DC Fast Charging location in Australia

    Chargefox Airport West is mine... 4 x 350kw Fast Chargers and a Nando's within walking distance ;)

    Model S giving much grief

    I think there's still likely to be some occasional glitches with the Newer Software running on the Nvidia Tegra Processor on the MCU1 System unfortunately. Thankfully the Double Press is a quick fix to resolve issues when they arise. Certainly I haven't had to do that anywhere near as much...

    Model S giving much grief

    Should make her good as New :-)

    Model S giving much grief

    Yeah I believe you can for an extra charge... Around $5-800 from memory. At some point in time people stop liking to spend $$$ on 8 year old Vehicles. Might not make as much sense if your just waiting for a Model Y etc...

    Model S giving much grief

    It certainly is... But you do lose AM and FM Radio and original poster might want to keep those. eMMC is a free fix to get car back to original or better condition for nothing.
  16. B

    Model S giving much grief

    Seems to me you have a Faulty eMMC in MCU. Book an appointment at Brighton Tesla and they will replace under recall warranty etc... If you have issues after that post here and we can try to assist further.

    Model S giving much grief

    Where abiuts in Melbourne are you? We could plug in the Scan My Tesla Tool for you if you need. Perhaps give you a better idea of the health of the car etc :) Have you had the MCU1 SSD Recall completed and/or upgraded to MCU2? Mine is a Pre-Facelift 2015 so should have the same connectors as...

    ChargeFox EV charging Network

    Price Increase for the 350kw Chargers... Doesn't make a massive difference for Tesla Owners... Actually just makes the Superchargers more attractive again.

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    I've got Disney+ with latest update to 2022.12.1 on my Model S

    Tesla App - Android Minimum version

    Bigot: Android 6 was released on Oct 5 2015. That's a fairly decent life cycle on the handsets of almost 7 Years. Are you sure you can't upgrade the particular handsets to a Newer Android Version? As of February 2022, approximately 2.84% of devices ran Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which was...

    Chuq Delivery Day Thread #ChuqDay - 2199 Days and we're finally here.

    Chuq's had some stop/start situations and changes of mind.. waiting for Model Y etc until eventually deciding to go for the Model 3 he has now :)

    Chuq Delivery Day Thread #ChuqDay - 2199 Days and we're finally here.

    Hopefully the Mods will allow this small indulgence on the behalf of the community. I just felt that this day was worthy of it's on thread. I know most of the world is probably focused on Cyber Texas... but we in Australia know this day is truely monumental for more important reasons. I'm...

    General consensus is within 5-10 minutes of @Chuq been handed the keys on his Model 3.

    Family home destroyed in fire reportedly started by charging Tesla

    I'm not on Twitter but a quick google search indicates the writer has one publicly showing her employment at news.com.au etc. Would be interesting to see if she responds to a query regarding the story.

    Tesla Model Y in Australia

    Yeap.... Guaranteed that will be the case Chuq. You'll have to Sell the 3 for Profit :-)

    Three-phase charging question

    I don't understand why it shows that... I believe it's got to do with how it measures the Input on each phase etc.. Basically what your seeing though is correct.... My 2015 P90DL shows 240V with the Circled 3 and 32A because it can 22kw Charging. Some general articles here gives you an idea...

    FSD Beta 10.11

    I think perhaps you might need to check your Calendar in regards to this conversation :)

    RHD Full Self Driving beta approved?

    Wol747: They probably won't like you posting on here about it... it is supposed to be selective and private ;)
  35. B

    RHD Full Self Driving beta approved?

    I haven't had any problem downloading the BETA on my Model S. Did you fill out the special NDA Email Tesla sent about the "Private Beta" we are undertaking? I had to fill that out first before it let me download.

    Charging is tripping circuit breaker

    Have you tried charging with the 10Amp Standard Tail instead... Just to make sure the charger itself is initially fine. Once that is confirmed ok....set the car charging down to 10a Max with the 32a Tail and see if it chargers... Then increase until it trips... You may find it chargers at...

    Ideal or Cost Effective Home Charging

    Joe-B: As long as you have a Tesla Car with the Tesla Wall Charger it works fine. You control the charging Start/Stop via the Car. I've tested with my Tesla Model S and works fine. However it won't work with the MG ZS EV I have running on a Gen1 Tesla Wall Charger (because as stated the...

    I guess we can see why Tesla doesn't have any issue raising prices :-)

    Delivered with Rust on brake rotors

    If you are referring to "Inside the Wheel Hubs" as being the Brake Discs themselves... then I'd expect there to be some surface rust on these and that it would disappear after driving for a small distance. Do you have any pictures?

    Tesla S loud at night

    Brian: I think that sometimes it can just be that Token's don't purge properly etc.. Ever Since I've resolved the issue I've been able to have the Car plugged in at night and charging and haven't heard it at all. It's right outside my window.. Charging at 32A (7KW) everynight... even when it...

    Tesla S loud at night

    Brian: I had exactly the same issues when I first purchased my Model S 2nd hand. It was driving the family utterly insane... waking us up every 45 minutes and night. I had to Park the Car in the Back Corner of our Yard at night to keep everyone sane!!! Subsequent discussions with Tesla didn't...
