    Version 2022.16.x

    I just got 16.1.1 and no use brake when regen is reduced feature. How new does “newer” hardware need to be. My Y was manufactured mid Jan 2022.

    Version 2022.16.x

    This is awesome. Having recent come into Tesla family I have been wondering why Tesla doesn't do this when many other EV makers who has copied Tesla's one pedal driving do this, and all the necessary pieces of technology to implement this are already there (for Autopilot). I am happy powers that...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Tesla service center sent me to Hertz for a service loaner recently and Hertz gave me a Y. It was a Fremont made Y probably made in early Feb going by the VIN.

    Spotify - entering vehicle

    Thanks for the left scroll wheel tip. Works most of the time. And so much better than first 1-5 minutes with blank Spotify switching between sources, clicking reload when it shows up and cursing Tesla for releasing something so buggy.

    Spotify - entering vehicle

    8.3 was better but 12.1 seems to be as bad as 8.2. The music UI defaults to "Choose Media Source" and lot of clicking around is required (e.g., switch to Radio and back) before Spotify shows anything and some playlists need several minutes of driving before displaying the playlist. Amateur hour.

    Diring in HOV lane without sticker

    Yes it is a mess since it is on a per express lane basis. Some express lanes you can travel with a non CAV flex and occupant count set to 3 to get 100% discount if you have a valid sticker. Other express lanes you need to have a CAV flex to get the 50% discount and always keep occupant count to...

    Diring in HOV lane without sticker

    You can keep the old one. And use it on another vehicle on your account. I believe up to 3 devices are free per account and additional ones have a nominal fee.

    Diring in HOV lane without sticker

    I don’t know if the cops are enforcing Flex violations at all but if they are I would think they would blindly check if the Flex count matches passenger count and not make a distinction between ICE and CAV. What’s the point of focusing on ICE violators but not CAV violators?

    Diring in HOV lane without sticker

    No it doesn't give a single person that justification. If you want CAV discount, you need FasTrak CAV.
  10. leaftoy

    Diring in HOV lane without sticker

    By setting FasTrak CAV to 3 passengers while driving solo, you are basically doing what you said some people do? ("some people risk going through the HOV lanes hoping a cop won't notice and catch them").

    Diring in HOV lane without sticker

    Out of curiosity, what are you considering the "bribe" here? $22 application fee?

    2022.8.2

    About 2022.8.2 vs 2022.4.5.x, why is it that there is only a single 2022.8.2 release and that is the only March code line release but there are so many 2022.4.5.x releases? How does Tesla decide which releases constantly get updated and which don't? Based on this thread, it is not like 2022.8.2...

    Model Y windshield washer no longer works

    Without even looking at the vehicle to see what the issue was, service center claimed mobile service cannot solve the issue, and parts to repair have been backordered (which repair?) and schedule a service center visit a month out. So they keep making and selling more and more cars without...

    Supercharger - Goleta, CA (LIVE 6 May 2020, 12 V3 stalls)

    SB had spots open. I didn’t see how many (new UI seems to obscure that info while you have a trip active in the nav). I chose to wait for a spot instead of driving to SB since I was traveling north and didn’t want to drive south just for a charge (and didn’t have enough at least according to the...

    Supercharger - Goleta, CA (LIVE 6 May 2020, 12 V3 stalls)

    Waiting in one of the EA spots is a sure way to lose your spot in the line as people waiting on one of the sides don't realize a Tesla is waiting in EA spot for super charger to open and take the spot that opens up. Saw this happen at least once while I was charging yesterday. Can't Tesla...

    Supercharger - Goleta, CA (LIVE 6 May 2020, 12 V3 stalls)

    3:30pm on a Sunday (end of spring break week for UCSB) all slots were full and several cars waiting. Is this normal for a Sunday afternoon at this charger? Also, all the Electrify America chargers were free with no one charging (except for a Ioniq5 which rolled in after some time). If only...

    Model Y windshield washer no longer works

    I have the same problem. Windshield wiper fluid ran out in 2 months and message popped up saying no fluid. Bought a gallon from an auto supply store. Made sure it is not bug removal fluid or water repellent fluid (since manual says not to use those). Just regular 32 degrees fluid. It took the...

    Fastrak Flex or Fastrak CAV?

    I just received the replacement velcro from Fastrak. Hopefully this one stays on. Otherwise I will have to look into a suction cup mount like the one mentioned above. BTW, in the velcro, is there supposed to be a window side and a fastrak side?

    Fastrak Flex or Fastrak CAV?

    How do folks here mount fastrak flex/cav? I tried windshield next to camera using provided Velcro tape and it keeps falling off every time I park in the sun.

    August Order Estimate Delivery

    Isn't it 9k more? Price changed to $53990 on 7/22/21 and it is $62990 today. Which is still a lot of money that we saved by ordering in August! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1F5IQOynIawoXiJPVarLDgPQDJAdzY8b5Vamw-Vf3eSY/edit?usp=sharing

    Homelink module: garage door closed on the car

    I have Tesla homelink installed on the Y and until today has been working just fine. I have auto close enabled (at 40ft) but not auto open. Today I was pulling out of the garage and my wife wanted to talk to me. I was half way out of the garage and put the car in park. And as soon as the car was...

    Still on software version 2021.43.102

    I have Ryzen but have been on latest versions (2022.4.X) for almost a month. It did take a few weeks for first update to show up.

    Still on software version 2021.43.102

    Didn’t it take a while for your Model Y to get its first update? Give a couple of weeks and you will have your first update and then you will be on everyone else’s upgrade train.

    Your experience delaying EOQ delivery?

    I am not sure if this is true any longer (or if it ever was). There were plenty of CA deliveries this Jan (including ours). And if you look at Teslike spreadsheet you can see CA deliveries are made throughout the quarter, though possible at a higher rate very near EOQ.

    California DMV - Plates & HOV Stickers

    This is what sales persons have done for each of my previous EVs to get a head start on the hov sticker app. Didn’t think of asking my SA since I didn’t think they would help. Good to know they can. About custom plates, if we apply for hov stickers with originally issued serial number plate do...

    California DMV - Plates & HOV Stickers

    Cash. And no trade-in. The two paper forms were "Vehicle/Vessel Transfer and Reassignment Form" and "Application for Registration of New Vehicle (DMV Copy + Dealer Copy)".

    California DMV - Plates & HOV Stickers

    The passenger seat had an UPS envelope with couple of forms to sign, and instructions that said to send it right away to reach within 24 hours after delivery to avoid any delays in registration processing. Mailing address was I believe the delivery center. (This was home delivery).

    California DMV - Plates & HOV Stickers

    8ZS. Received 2/17. Sent the paperwork back to delivery center same day as delivery.

    California DMV - Plates & HOV Stickers

    Plates from my 1/18 delivery showed up a week ago and were still 8Z. But there have been some 9A sighting in the wild so it just depends on when Tesla’s DMV processor runs out of their 8Z stock.

    Do I want 2022.4.5 (currently 2021.39.104)?

    The wiper heater button is sitting there in the UI, never used. We are in "freeze warning" right now but still I am sure warmer than temps where wiper heater could be useful. :)

    Garage Door Opener?

    I do have homelink add-on installed and love everything about it. Especially the auto open. I have set distance to where I have line of sight to garage door, and know how to cancel auto open if I see the door open. And I don't know why other manufacturers haven't moved beyond the standard 3...

    Just sold my Model Y - Parting thoughts

    It is not as absurd as you make it out to be. There seems to be a dial each manufacturer can turn to skew the EPA range to more accurately reflect real-world range, and Tesla always turns the dial towards higher number while other manufacturers (at least a few of them) turn it to make it closer...

    How long after getting VIN assigned did you pick up your Y?

    1 day. I think the gap between VIN and delivery depends on how far you are from the factory.
  37. leaftoy

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    I don't think people in CA get their deliveries sooner than average. If someone gets moved up during EOQ push, someone else will probably get moved down early in the quarter to compensate for it. Also, where are we seeing these MYLR December order deliveries? Teslike spreadsheets shows couple...

    Won't the VINs for all these be assigned already?

    Length of EDD range

    Sure. I live less than 25 miles from the Fremont factory and initially when I completed profile I was only offered a factory pickup and no home delivery. VIN assignment was on a Monday morning, and automated text to schedule only offered delivery slots on the Friday of the same week. Butlater on...

    Garage Door Opener?

    So my point of view was controversial enough for you to deserve a downvote? Yes, Homelink is not a long range device, but individual circumstances vary and in my case default homelink auto open distance is farther than line of sight. I am sure there are a lot of others for which this is true...

    California Timeline: Car Purchase, License & Registation, HOV Stickers, and FasTrak CAV Toll-Tag

    What's old form/old address and new form/new address? I filled form "REG 1000 (REV. 12/2021) WWW" recently and sent it to: DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLES SPECIAL PROCESSING UNIT - MS D238 P. O. BOX 997601, SACRAMENTO, CA 95899-7601 Is this old or new?

    Any info about software versions 2021.43.xxx appearing on new vehicles?

    Took me 3 weeks to get the first update and it was to the main release. It does appear to vary a lot as to when someone gets their first update to the main release, and getting it immediately after delivery seems to be more of an exception rather than a rule (going by various posts on this site).
  43. leaftoy

    Length of EDD range

    It certainly has so far. Courteous delivery team (got delivered the morning after VIN/manufacturing). No obvious fit and finish issues. Registration was handled in a timely manner. Mobile service has been easy to schedule. Even the one service visit was handled really well (except for Uber...

    California DMV - Plates & HOV Stickers

    I didn't get to find out if we move to 9 series next since I got an 8Z series one in mail. Looks like just like the VIN, this isn't quite sequential and depends on which DMV processor Tesla uses and what they have on hand.

    August Order Estimate Delivery

    @kc1953 did you wait until license plate before applying for the HOV sticker, and have you received them yet?

    Any info about software versions 2021.43.xxx appearing on new vehicles?

    With all the supply chain issues I wouldn't be surprised if there were minor changes in your config that needed firmware updates and it is easier/safer to do this on an stable older branch. Eventually it will get merged to the main line and you will start getting those updates.

    Garage Door Opener?

    Except for the location based automatic open/close feature. Ideally someone should set the range for auto open to be after you have visual contact with garage door, but nothing is stopping someone from leaving it at default distance where the auto open signal could be send before you see the...

    2022.4.5 Software release

    Model Y steep driveway

    Are you actually scraping or it is just wheelspin? I have a similar problem. Our driveway is no where close to what OP's driveway is, but I hear something that feels like wheel spin when I make a right from the road up the driveway. Making a left turn into the driveway, no issues. Reversing...
