    Model S vs Model X

    3rd world problems are such a pain, eh? You already know, for many months, you will be able to sell that X without any effort.

    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    @tga, yeah, sorry you had to go through that. Yes, we too learned the 'fix" process had been complicated with "can't do that remotely" any more. We posted that too when we learned it in later posts. There's no place good where all the lessons learned could be published or point people to, to...

    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    Hey, @Droschke, reliving everything we did on this project is sort of futile, because Tesla won't help you. But if you would like to know some of the highlights, you can read up. There's a owner that is not a frequent poster here, called Teslatap. (teslatap.com). He's a good guy that I...

    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    Well, (I still say after 27-28 months of having MCU2), that the $1500-$2000 for even just MCU2 is a bargain and worth twice that. I paid $2500 and don't regret it. Worth every penny. And for almost a year, Tesla said the radio option was not possible. We showed them, that's B.S., and could be...

    My used 2013 P85 came with unlimited supercharging

    That's accurate statement. Car that old, might have also be traded-in to a third party/non Tesla auto dealer. If Tesla found out a car dealer other than Tesla owned it, they were removing Supercharging. There's a number of ways that cars sold originally with SC lost SC.

    My used 2013 P85 came with unlimited supercharging

    April 2017 was when FUSC was no longer an option when we bought a new Tesla. After that, some used Teslas' sold by Tesla also had FUSC removed. But people buying those that where it had been removed, could see it was no longer with the car when they were shopping via its Used cars on Tesla.com

    Like oldies? Try ABC 50's on Tune In. Its the only station that I listen to car or via Alexa.

    My used 2013 P85 came with unlimited supercharging

    When you ask, "accept", do you mean can I plug it in and it will charge? If so, yes, you can.. Car will throttle down to is possible charging speed, even on fastest Supercharger. But its batter will not charge at V3 speed. If its the original battery (it may not be the original battery that...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Its worth the wait. And that's an understatement.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Hi Mike. Maybe, I don't remember exactly. Been about two years now since I removed it.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    yes, that's what I was saying. Its more responsive. Less false starts.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    @SilverGS, what year car do you have? I ask because AP2 Summon does not like the installed front camera kit. The summon gets confused when the car is left in front camera view when you attempt summon. And default on the switch is front camera view. There may be other "reactions" that AP2...

    Supercharger - Aiea, HI (6 stalls)

    Thank you Big Earl. I wish I could raise my wand and add EV Level 2 charging to every building. Let's assume, we had the permits and HOA approvals as in who/which gets the capability, do only guest parking spots get the charging station, if owners, who gets left out when too many it? But...

    Supercharger - Aiea, HI (6 stalls)

    I'm quite impressed that you can be in CA and "see" that Tesla owners in HI don't need superchargers. Maybe you can help them install the L2 chargers in the high rises? (Just a little jab of less than perfect humor there.) We are all on the same team. You don't have all the facts. The...

    Supercharger - Aiea, HI (6 stalls)

    Well, you are allowed to have and share your opionion. And we Oahu owners are not opposed to B.I., getting 3-5 or even more. And we have voiced that to the Tesla Supercharger Team. But they 3,000-4,000 Tesla owners living in high rises that can't charge at home would likely stand in line to...

    Rail this decade on Oahu. Superchargers on all the islands. This is the funniest thread on TMC.

    Supercharger - Aiea, HI (6 stalls)

    Yes Sir. $ 10.x Billion spent. I would say invested, but not sure its an investment, vice just money given to the building industry.

    Hawaii Superchargers

    Yeah, know that location. Single sided strip like shopping center. Likely a compliance EV charger as required by city for parking lots. That parking lot is very often full and difficult to find an empty space. Translation: Non-EVs will have no hesitation to park when there's not an EV in it...

    Update on AP Camera Update for Older S/X Vehicles

    @brouck, I did exactly the same. I even booked an appointment in Nov for the cameras since they had started replacing them. Appoint was for 3 weeks in advance. And was accepted. Confirmed by a SA. Then day before, they cancelled it and told me to wait for an invite. That has never been...

    2013 S 85 Charge Port Replacement Tips?

    Thank you. I've been around a while. I can remember when we move up to FW 3.1, My comment was a reply and primarily intended for @Keysla, as he had a reason to watch for one. I think the majority could see that, though.

    2013 S 85 Charge Port Replacement Tips?

    2017 S MCU2. Mar 2020. (It was an error that my SC made, but mine was one of the first MCU2 upgrades in the country. And first done by my SC in Hawaii).

    HECO Fast Charger Etiquette

    ChaDeMo. Please don't call those superchargers. They don't deserve to be called that. They are merely DCFC.

    Supercharger - Aiea, HI (6 stalls)

    I understand what you are asking. I am not currently there, sitting in area. But it is usually busy. The past four times that I have been during daylight and as late as 8-9 pm, all 6 stalls are full. People are very good about leaving as soon as they have completed their charge. And there...

    Supercharger - Aiea, HI (6 stalls)

    Wow, do I so very much agree with your statement there. HART/Rail is a stupid racket. Remember when this effort started? Cost was around $4 Billion. And offset by $ 1.5 Billion of that coming from Feds. Then its cost grew and they threw more money at it. More money so they would not lose...

    Supercharger - Aiea, HI (6 stalls)

    Maybe for the good of the planet? Secondary, likely, because we have been paying $4xx+ a gallon for gas fore-v-e-r, and "juice" is less than half the cost to travel the same distance? Hasn't gasoline been $2 a gallon or barrel in Arkansas for years until recently? Does it really matter, should...

    Who here is going to lose 3G Connectivity - Feb 2022 when it sunsets?

    Yes. Absolutely. The first LTE cards were installed in late April/early May 2015. All factory MCUs since have had LTE, and will not have a continuing connectivity issue. When Tesla started making the refurbished MCU1 and the upgrade MCU2 available, those too have LTE cards and no connectivity...

    12v battery warranty?

    EXACTLY CORRECT/RIGHT. Save it, print it. Date it. Keep it. AND any hard copy any receipt that you paid for a repair or item before/during that warranty.

    Supercharger - Aiea, HI (6 stalls)

    Thanks for asking that. When we just volunteer that info it sounds more like we are whining or entitled than not. What did people do before we got our first & small supercharger (compared to most cities). Tesla owners that could not charge at home would attempt to charge in the wild, at...
  36. Akikiki

    Supercharger - Aiea, HI (6 stalls)

    Yes, no charging at home. Don't be amazed, they are desperate to charge. Many of our owners live in high rise condos in downtown area. Many of those in building don't have extra power. Who would have thought we would need electric welder capable outlets at every other parking space, 25+ years...
  37. Akikiki

    Supercharger - Aiea, HI (6 stalls)

    Thanks. That makes some sense. I certainly don't mean to criticize the effort behind this charger, but it was "sort of put up/together quickly. This one is located where the Sears (withing 50 feet of the supercharger), was recently closed. There's a possibility that if the store had not...

    How do we get Tesla to add a speed limiter feature

    I am not interested or looking for a speed limit feature on a Tesla, but. I was looking at the Tesla Remote app, to pair some NFC tags to Tesla Remote shortcuts. I saw a shortcut within the Tesla Remote app that is named Enable Speed Limit. Anyone looked at that? (I'm not bothering, but I...

    2nd run of camera switch that show a front image on the touch screen

    Why not thermal. But that's not what we wanted at the beginning of artsci's project. In 2013 when all this started the S didn't have parking sensors. The front camera was a way to literally see how close we were coming to walls and parking bumpers. And even when parking sensors were added...

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

    I agree, but there's no one on TMC or owns a Tesla that already knows better than @Krash the benefits of MCU2 over MCU1. Believe me, please. He knows.

    2nd run of camera switch that show a front image on the touch screen

    Well. Good work so far. Two questions, and I hope @appleguru jumps in. 1. Where did you get power for the #3 terminal on the little green switch connector? Which brings me to #2. Are you using appleguru's hybrid (what is it called?) Python? It sounds to me like his device is not getting...

    2nd run of camera switch that show a front image on the touch screen

    Looking back at one of domodan's recent posts, I think he's saying he want to buy and install the "Beatsonic HDMI mirroring solution." kit but wanted to know where the rear cam cable is.

    2nd run of camera switch that show a front image on the touch screen

    Shows? No, I don't think there are any pictures posted around here. But I explained earlier. Its on the right hand side. Remove the glove box and you can see all the Fakra connectors going into the AP engine. You won't find tag or labels to show you, but study it a bit, then look for one that...

    2nd run of camera switch that show a front image on the touch screen

    Yes, that's accurate. That too is a good idea. Nice to have alternate ways to get this done. Thanks for that. I had forgotten that. I now suffer from CRS. (Can't Remember S**t). :)

    2nd run of camera switch that show a front image on the touch screen

    @S-ALSET, I am not answering for them, but from my experience. you are going to need to install it at the left end of the dash. Probably after you pop off the crazy 4-ish side dash end panel of the dash. There's enough room front the end of the dash to slide it in. But you might have to attach...

    2nd run of camera switch that show a front image on the touch screen

    I believe the original question was "where's the cable/connection/place to disconnect the feed from the rear camera so something else can be plugged in. If that is accurate, "where": On 2012-2014 with AP0 (no AP) the rear camera cable comes up the inside floor side driver side. Behind the...

    Getting billed for using a normal looking wall connector?

    You make some excellent points. Not only does Tesla have to make a CCS plug available, they can't forsake the existing fleet of Tesla connectors. So, it's not going to be a simple swap, but more likely a cable addition (I would dare to guess). After being in a queue for 7 years, we still only...

    Getting billed for using a normal looking wall connector?

    No sir. Subject sort of popped up when we were talking about WC ver 3.0. The WiFi feature and complementing programming on the owner's side will allow a WC to be configured to allow people like the OP to use, but will charge them and make money for he property owner/WC owner/Electricity...
