    With touchscreen freezing, why would I buy FSD

    Got it back a few weeks ago and have had no issues at all since.

    Screen Flickering in New MY

    Mine had the same issue. This is a known thing to Tesla now so just schedule an appt and show them a video of it as proof. They most likely will just have to replace the screen cable. It’s a $23 party and an easy fix. CABLE, IP, CENTER DISPLAY Part #: 1091280-00-D

    With touchscreen freezing, why would I buy FSD

    Got it back this past Monday good as new. I took it on a road trip and had zero screen issues the whole time. I wouldn’t worry about overloading them, just call your SA and have them double check everything. My guy was freaking great and triple checked everything at my request.

    With touchscreen freezing, why would I buy FSD

    Without going into too much technical detail... when a cable is bad, it can cause all kinds of errors depending on whether it has an internal short, poor connection, etc. Lots of ways it could be damaged as well. If rebooting fixes the issue, it may be as simple as your computer detected the...

    With touchscreen freezing, why would I buy FSD

    I heard they only update new cars on Fridays. I picked up my car on Tuesday, put in a service request and got the latest update that night. I posted elsewhere but they isolated it to a bad cable.

    With touchscreen freezing, why would I buy FSD

    I took a video of the flashing and showed it to him. They replaced the screen on Monday, then I get a call that afternoon saying that the screen flashed when they were doing QA checks so they were going to replace the computer the next day. That next day they realize it’s a faulty cable... a...

    With touchscreen freezing, why would I buy FSD

    I have a service appt on Monday AM for this and a fe other things. The Service dude called and bumped me up as I've been having more and more problems. I got he 2021.4.12 update last night and the issues have persisted... My screen went completely blank at the end of my drive today so it appears...

    7-seat config waiting room

    Yes, I took delivery in Rockville, MD. When I mentioned this to the Delivery Specialist when I picked up the other day he said they have been doing this for the last 5 months or so... not that it was a MD thing but that would make sense. Has anyone else received a Tire Repair Kit outside of MD?

    With touchscreen freezing, why would I buy FSD

    Got mine yesterday and have the same issue. Mine is unresponsive, like it's freezing up quite often. Resetting it doesn't really help. Submitted a service appt today for it.

    Ear pain/Pressure help

    So I just picked up my car today and have a new theory... think the root cause is the hatch hinges are weak and allow for a lot of movement... I noticed that if I opened my hatch and wiggled it up and down (and side to side but less though) the hinges would flex quite a bit. Not just the hinges...

    Picked mine up today 2 days early. Ordered 1/29, vin on 3/4, built on 3/3 Blue/Black, LR AWD, 7 seater, 20” rims, hitch, no FSD, old headlights, VIN 141xxx. Gaps were great but a piece of the plastic protective film must of came loose and was flapping in the wind so there are some scratches...

    Gap insurance?

    Wasn’t looking for a finance lesson, thanks... deff could pay cash, but my investments will make more than the 2% interest I’ll pay. Given the 35k miles I drive a year, I’ll be upside down for a while, even on a 3 or 4 year loan and the $400-500 that gap Insurance costs is an afterthought. To me...

    Gap insurance?

    Did anyone get Gap Insurance on their loan through Tesla? I emailed finance and they said all they handle is leases and directed me to my soon to be lender to add it. I called Wells Fargo and apparently they don’t offer it... they said it’s a 3rd party thing offered at dealers. Gap Insurance...

    MYLR delivery declined-no pre-delivery interior inspection

    I spoke to my delivery coordinator yesterday... She said the car would be locked but they could unlock it so I could inspect it prior to making my final payment and accepting delivery. To her the idea of spending that much without being able to inspect it first was insane. I'm scheduled to...

    VIN Assigned! 140286...Highest I've seen yet.

    Mine is 141,0xx. Ordered on 28 January, build date was 3 March, VIN assigned 4 March, and I was given 18-21 March to schedule pickup. I chose the 18th of course, lol. I haven't seen anyone take delivery of one over 135xxx and none that were made in March. My SA seems tho think that all March...

    How do you confront someone you catch trying to unplug your car?

    Make a hang tag that says something like “Warning - Risk of electrocution or damage if you try to remove this while charging. You are being recorded, smile for the cameras!” and put it in the handle.

    Any Model Y with new projector headlights in the USA?

    Mine was built 2 days ago and my SA said that’s, as he understands it, my LR7 seater will have the new headlights. He said it started in March 2021

    Anyone use this Romex 6/3 cable during install?

    Agreed... or just do it right and run 6 AWG THHN wire if you plan to use a 60 amp circuit. I bought that wire and everything else tonight to properly install my Wall Connector and my wife commented on how expensive it was. We will literally save that much in one month of not buying gas. I...

    Anyone use this Romex 6/3 cable during install?

    No need to limit the charging in the vehicle... If you install the correct circuit and use the Tesla Wall Connector, or the Mobile Charger, that is. They automatically limit themselves (as per NEC) to 80% of the rated circuit. If you select 60A when initializing the Wall Connector, it will...

    Talked to my SA today... all he can see on their internal system that is being or is slated for manufacture is SR MY’s. No LR’s. Didn’t say anything about 5 vs 7 seater though

    Keycard cracked, vehicle stuck

    https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=tesal+keycard+hack Check out these videos... you can make your keycard much smaller and more robust by dissolving the plastic and putting the chip and antenna in a smaller enclosure. That way it won't snap when you're hitting the trails.

    Tesla EV Tax Credits coming back?

    Not if there is some kind of price ceiling on the tax credit... like in some states their credits don’t Spot over $60k purchase price. Makes more sense to offer FSD (or a reduced capacity version) cheaper every February or March when folks will be getting their larger tax refunds. Kinda like...

    Tesla EV Tax Credits coming back?

    So does "sold date" mean the day you ordered or the day you took delivery?

    Ear pain/Pressure help

    It sounds like you need to try to isolate where it is coming from. It could be a door or something that is vibrating or just the natural resonance of the vehicle. I know what I'm about to recommend is unsafe but find a stretch of road or a rough parking lot where you can consistently hear the...

    General "Should I Wait for Upgrades" Thread

    But as Elon said, they cut the price as the tax credit was phased out because: 1. They had to in order to continue selling cars 2. The manufacturing costs went down due to scale and efficiencies That being said, prices could go up but I don't think they will but demand will go way up.

    How are quality issues with Model Y currently

    Easy fix... include Homelink in every vehicle as a standard feature. With their constant work in reducing costs ($/KWH, manufacturing efficiencies, going to mega castings, etc.), this $300 option, which costs them WAY less, can be easily added with little to no net effect on profit. This is one...

    Picking up our 2nd Tesla. Must keep it a secret from my wife until she sees the car

    Buying a car for your wife is great, but if I were in your situation I know my wife would be furious... not about the car, but rather that I let her worry and feel that we were struggling financially this whole time and then I turn around and buy her a car AND tell her that we are all good.

    He just reiterated this in his interview with Sandy Monroe. He also said he would like to go to 48V at some point because you can make the wires a lot smaller.

    Ear pain/Pressure help

    Without definitive proof that there is a low frequency pressure/sound you will have a hard time. I test drove one last week and noticed the same... almost felt like misaligned active noise canceling. My wife and kids did not hear/feel it. Have your audio engineer test the car. If he is still...
