    MX Key Fob Battery - 2354 or 2032??

    Anyone ever try putting two CR2032's in instead of a single CR2354? Seems like they would fit and the voltage should stay at 3V. So hard to find CR2354's locally. Just a thought... -m

    External 4G and wifi antennas

    Hi! MCU 1 2017 Model X here.... I would love to add external antennas for the 4G and the wifi systems for better reception. I'm an IT tech so I'm somewhat familiar with this stuff, but not to this technical level. From the forum here, there are cables and plugs in the doors running from the...

    How to reduce road noise in 2017 X ?

    Hi! So... what did they do to the 2020 X to reduce the road noise? Can I do it on my 2017? I'm fairly handy with the Dynamat, etc products. Thanks. -m

    Tesla 2016 model x versus 2020 model X

    Slower AC charging sucks.... I charge at home regularly on the weekends and often need fast last-minute charging to happen.... I'd pay another $500 to have the second charging module put back in..... -m

    I've been stuck (at my office at least) twice now with this message. I had to have my wife pick me up tonight.... i waited 45 minutes for it to finish whatever it was doing........???? IT says it is checking for updates.. not installing an update. But still can't drive? -m

    How hard is it to go from a 2017 6 seater to having the fold down seats in the middle row (for more cargo area room) ?

    Serious? Ugh... They should be upgrading the processor, even in Tegra, as the years go by.. I mean we have processor from 2012 in our 2017's?? -m

    Nitrogen ?

    Yes the other gasses expand and contact with temperature enough to make a difference. Here's some descriptions of it: UCSB Science Line Pure nitrogen has very little change when temperatures change. -m

    I have one of the original wall chargers from my Model S and I charged at 80amp. I use it now on our Model X 72amp. That handle does get hot... like almost to burning hot. This is normal as far as I know. Yeah, as Electric700 says, try lowering the amperage to on the X to 32 (to match the 3)...

    Nitrogen ?

    I've used it on a number of cars in the past... Since we have wide temperature changes (even in the same day), the Nitrogen kept tire pressure equal at all times. I have just air in my Tesla tires because the Service Center doesn't do nitrogen and they end up doing my tire work.... else I...

    News for Model X owners with the dreaded shudder

    Does it kinda feel like torque steer when accelerating? I have that for sure... I'm a 50,000 Vin from summer 2017.... Thanks for this thread. -m

    Cabin Overheat Protection almost stranded us

    I turned it off right away. It should maybe use no more then X percent of available charge. It could also alert the phone app if it's not going to cool any more..... -m

    Winch power connection

    Hi! I have a Dutton-Lainson TW4000 power winch to pull my boat onto the trailer. Great product, BTW. My problem is getting sufficient 12v power in the rear of the X. I now have to bring a separate car battery to just run the winch--which seems unnecessary. I know there's a cigarette...

    Added lighting to center console (mod)

    Hey.. I'm trying something similar... but I want to hard wire it to the 12v plug connection so I don't use up a USB or the 12v power point. Anyone know how to get into the back of the 12v power point? Thanks.. -m

    AP2 AutoSteer swerviness...??

    I find it searches side to side if: 1. If the lane you are in is wider then a normal lane 2. The road lines disappear on either side for a short time 3. On a sunny day, when you drive through a shady spot Otherwise it's fine on the freeway..... -m

    Anyone else find their MX unlocked when they don't expect?

    Absolutely.... Thank goodness it's happened most in my office garage.... driver's door usually stays open after getting out. I try to at least listen for the door to close now..... or I triple click the fob if I'm thinking it won't close itself. -m

    Auto-Presenting Doors not working

    I believe I had this same unit replaced too, but also I find sometimes the door won't swing open by itself. The SC recommended opening and closing it 2-3 times in a row, to help re-adjust the sensors. After doing that, it works fine again.... (for a while).... -m

    Auto open drivers door intermittant

    yes mine works intermittently, even in the same locations. The service center said to open and close the door a couple of times so the sensors reset.... And then it does work again for a while. Happens to me with power saving on and off. I even had the drivers door gently hit the car next...

    Just received my P100DL im sort of dissapointed and embarrassing and I'm having AP2 issues

    On side streets is can be scary, definitely pay attention. I get only the avatar of the car in front of me. I've noticed the limited super limit thing before... A couple of smaller roads that were upgraded in width and speed the car thinks are the original speed limit. Finding that out is...

    I have a two month old X100D. Had a model s85 previously with no ap. It does take done getting used to and a lot of trust. I use it mainly on interstate type larger freeways and I find it does s very very well job.

    Hi! Wondering if there's a way for VisibleTesla to e-mail me when the car reaches a mileage milestone (like say, every 10,000 miles)? Also it would be nice to have it e-mail me on Jan 1 to help my records know how many miles I had at that time. I just noticed the notice if odometer passes X...

    Sound deadening work begins next week: will report before and after data

    I did pretty full Dynamat on the doors (inner and outer door panels), around the trunk wheelwells, and played with some Dynapad as well. I could find no appreciable difference before vs after Dynamat. The car is solid and does not vibrate that much. I do not recommend doing this. But I will...

    Is waiting 2 months+ for P90D parts normal?

    Yep.. parts are not easy to come by. My repair on 6th day of ownership took about 3 months with most of that waiting for parts from Tesla. It sucks not to have the car, but it's like taking delivery of the car all over again when it's done! Hang in there... -m
