    Tesla app not connecting after idle period

    I am having the same issue, 2020 MY and iPhone12. Oddly enough, this only just started happening for me, typically the phone has been able to connect very quickly. With the latest round of updates I received (both app update and car firmware update) the app no longer registers when it is...

    App downloading 2022.12.3.2

    Got back to the car this week, and it turns out the 12V battery needs to be replaced (again...it was just replaced by tesla service three weeks ago), which is why the car will not update (no updates until the battery is replaced). The first battery lasted 1.5 years, second battery less than 3...

    App downloading 2022.12.3.2

    You are probably right, once I’m back near the car I will do that. The app is still stuck saying the same thing.

    App downloading 2022.12.3.2

    I’m having a similar issue where the app asks me to install 2022. When I click “yes” it goes to “preparing to update” and then stays there for some time, before reverting back to the “software Update Scheduled for [next day, next time]”. It’s been stuck in this loop for a few days now.

    How do you get yourself out if you child lock yourself at the backseat??

    The app does open the trunk. Fold down a seat and climb through.

    Can you turn the screen off?

    Just took the kiddos to the drive in this weekend, and this is still an issue. Aside from simply covering the screen, I guess there's no simple way to turn the screen off (yet). We used camp mode combined with "screen clean" mode. Kind of annoying...

    Tesla Finance Re-registration

    This is just an FYI. CA DMV is months behind on titles. I bought out a lease in October of 2020. Sent in all the paperwork, and received (an incorrectly completed) title in the mail almost 4 months later. I asked the leasing company to fix the title, and received the corrected title another 3...

    Model Y windshield washer no longer works

    I've seen some good replies above. I've had this issue before (with another car), and I checked: 1) Look for low fluid, and refill if low 2) If fluid is good, check for loose hoses/broken T's 3) If fluid and hoses are good, check for blockage at the nozzle/hose 4) If none of the above solves the...

    That is true…unfortunately.

    Motorcycle high fives my passenger mirror...

    Also untrue (at least in CA). Lane splitting is legal by omission here (unless something changed since I last looked). Meaning, there is no speed limit to lane splitting (other than the road speed limit), only suggested limits relative to other traffic. It is up to the person on the bike to make...

    Motorcycle high fives my passenger mirror...

    Untrue. Just like any other activity, you have people who are able to do it with no issue, and those whose temperament does not allow it. I've been riding motorcycles and lane splitting for over 25 years and I've never been in an accident while doing it. I've also never hit another persons...

    Brand new model Y doors wont close due to window glass issue

    My bet is that THIS is likely the issue, if the puddle lights go bad on the bottom of the doors, the windows will no longer close correctly. Since you car is new, you can have service replace the offending light, but if they are taking some time, it might be worth just doing it yourself. Easy to...

    Model Y charging keeps stopping

    Having the same issue with my MY as of today. Never happened before, but it took me about seven attempts to get the car to charge for more than a few minutes at a time. My wall connector has worked perfectly for over a year, so I'm not sure where the issue lies. Maybe a software update is in...

    Will Tesla ever offer Lease buyout?

    Do you mean you want to trade in your current car to Tesla as part of a new lease? My short answer is I don't know, but I'd ask the SA, they can likely give you that information well ahead of time.

    Tesla App car parked at home shows wrong number

    Ours did the same for a long while, eventually it began displaying the correct address though. I didn't do anything to "fix" it, as someone noted above, we have poor cell reception here so I figured that was the cause, and I didn't concern myself with it. I guess after repeated use/trips to/from...

    Hansshow auto frunk warped my hood?

    First, I'm sorry this happened, I feel your pain. I'll preface my thoughts with the fact that I have the same hardware installed on mine, and it worked perfectly the first time, and has for about a year now but that doesn't mean there aren't bad units out there. OP, you said "Hi all, I tried to...

    Who ordered a Tesla Model Y without test driving one first?

    Absolutely test drove it first. Twice actually, once for a 30 min ride, and a second time overnight. I have kids though, so we had to try it out with everyone in the car before purchasing.

    Buying Michelin Pilot AS4

    I was able to order the tires from Tirerack.com and they came in a few days ago, had it installed yesterday at my local tire place. So far I am pretty happy with them. They seem to make a bit more tire noise than the Goodyear's they replaced but the trade off there is they seem to have a bit of...

    I test drove Hyundai Ioniq 5 SEL RWD (short review)

    Same here. A few years back my wife and I were shopping for a Honda Pilot (I think) and the dealer wanted $5k over MSRP. I laughed and told him to call me when he was ready to sell at MSRP. He never did call, but I also got another SUV from the Mazda dealer on the same block for less than MSRP...

    Will Tesla ever offer Lease buyout?

    Also bear in mind Tesla just added the "Buy Out Lease" button to the app (under financing), which was not available previously. I haven't touched it to see if the option is greyed out or not, but I agree with what is being said. At some point, Tesla will have too much inventory and not enough...

    Will Tesla ever offer Lease buyout?

    I leased my car, in fact I've leased all of my cars for the past 10+ years or so. Its faulty to attempt to attach a certain buyer type, or fiscal responsibility level to folks who lease as we all have our own reasons for doing so. In my case, I own a company, and the company leases the vehicle...

    Buying Michelin Pilot AS4

    Can you post up when you actually get it? I ordered the AS4 in December from Costco but Michelin cancelled the order (3 weeks later), the Costco rep said that the manufacturer was in production but didn't actually have stock to ship. So I'm curious if Tesla were able to order them AND they...

    Southern CA Edison rates make it not worth charging at home

    I just had my windshield replaced last week Tuesday, and I had the same HVAC issue for a few days.

    Tesla Insurance - vehicle monitoring data used to determine rates for California drivers?

    I saw that as well, and just like "Pied" I'm keeping an eye on the rate, and if it goes up I plan to switch to another provider. I'm really not a fan of these "monitored" insurance plans. I have no accidents, no tickets, no nothing. I feel like that is how my fees should be determined. I already...

    The only positives for me are: 1) The automatic function and 2) The ability to open my garage door from my phone when playing with my kids outside. That way all I have to carry is my phone. That being said, it's glitchy enough, and costly enough, that if I had to do it again, I would not...

    Cruise control / Auto Pilot is Garbage

    Are school zone speed limits conditional in your area? They are here, so it makes sense here that the AP would maintain the normal speed limit and depend on the driver to modify that limit if the special condition is met (kids present).

    Yes, it is still illegal. They have circumvented the law by opening stores on Native American land where the law cannot be enforced. Texans can then purchase from the Native land (in New Mexico). https://indiancountrytoday.com/news/tesla-opens-store-on-native-land

    I cannot remember EVER caring where my car was made, maybe I should...but I don't. I like my Tesla, but will most likely go Rivian (or even Ford Lightning) as my next EV, for completely different reasons though. Like someone was saying earlier, (most) large corporations will beg for incentives...
