    How do you activate FSD?

    PEOPLE!!! Doesn't need any hocus-pocus...just wait, and drive a bit, and the button will appear!!! All the stuff you are doing is NOT needed....but I've found that it can be activated by reading a good book, mowing the lawn, or simply contemplating your navel....

    Slacker custom stations aren't visible...???

    I did find a fix. And this thread comes from the same issue you had...when switching from an S to a 3. Tesla won't give out the Tesla login info, so you can't log in on a computer and set things up, and you have to go through the hack described in another thread, using a PC to load modified...

    How to get Tesla Slacker back after give up personal account?

    Now with Spotify, and with the Slacker hack no longer working that gave me my Custom Stations, I want to revert back to the Tesla account and dump my personal one - how do I do that? I don't have login info the the Tesla account that came with the car (they won't give it out if you ask)?

    [Tip] How to access your custom Slacker stations on the car

    Custom station on slacker recently stopped loading (maybe a firmware release or two ago, there have been a bunch of new releases)...just get the spinning wheel and never plays....any thoughts? Maybe it also had something to do with the transition from "Slacker" to "LiveXLive"? My custom...

    Review: Magnetic Power 2 XVIDA Qi Charger - The perfect Model 3 mount?

    Mine only falls off once every few months, when it is hot out....so I haven't even put on the new suction cup yet. There is a little video no their site showing how to get the old one off, FYI... -s

    Review: Magnetic Power 2 XVIDA Qi Charger - The perfect Model 3 mount?

    They do peel off, not pull off....I've sent a note to Xvida asking if there is a better way to keep them mounted in hot cars...will let all know when I get a reply.

    Review: Magnetic Power 2 XVIDA Qi Charger - The perfect Model 3 mount?

    Mine has fallen twice in a year...I think it isn't the adhesive, which isn't what holds it on - it is the vacuum from the suction mount. When the sun shines directly on the mount it makes the air inside expand, which cancels out the vacuum, and thus, the suction.

    Model 3 Performance Battery Degradation One Month (Story)

    I think it is the sudden drop that get to folks - it was to me. And surely some of those drops are actually battery issues...I lost 15 miles (down to 290) essentially overnight, a few weeks after getting the car....the quick "charge to 100% and then let it go down really low a few times" thing...

    Wheel Bands Kit for Tesla Model 3 (curb rash protection)

    I love Wheel Bands - had them on my S for 4 years and now on my 3...they do a great job, easy to apply, easy to repair - they win over the others for having both of those characteristics. And go directly to Wheelbands company to get a big discount on a whole second kit to use for repairs when...

    Review: Magnetic Power 2 XVIDA Qi Charger - The perfect Model 3 mount?

    brad's - the answer turned out to be simple...the mount does swivel up to about 15 degrees after installation, when the weight of the phone is on it...so just flip up the lever and rotate it about 15 degrees above vertical...then lock it in...and when the phone is on it it now is level...

    Model 3 Performance Battery Degradation One Month (Story)

    Funny - the suggestion in the last line in the recent message from Tesla Executive Care, re Service being able to do "a kind of recalibration", is unknown to Service here in Portland. And that recommendation isn't in the original Jerome Guillen version of the message...so either it is so new...

    Battery Degradation?

    From tesla corporate support: We have found that in cases where the battery is consistently charged to a lower state of charge, between 60-80% capacity, estimation becomes less accurate and tends to underestimate the true capacity of the battery. The result is an incorrect reduction in the...

    Model 3 Performance Battery Degradation One Month (Story)

    NEW NEWS from Tesla Executive Customer person - I think it means that it doesn't count driving style, but DOES lose accuracy based on charging level...so you have more miles than than indicated, i.e., maybe you could drive more miles than expected from range estimate and wh/mi; somehow it would...

    Model 3 Performance Battery Degradation One Month (Story)

    Hmmm....so in fact, the battery isn't degraded (maybe, keep reading), but your range actually is degraded - if charging will stop before all cells are charged. I did the charge to 100%, go down 100% thing and still get (extrapolated) 290 charge on my AWD...so it isn't simply balancing. Brought...

    TeslaFi - Battery Degradation Reports (upload your data)

    I'm now down 5.5% and losing about 1 mile every day or two...I'm really wondering if there is a significant flaw in the Model 3 battery design...there are too many of us in this situation...My old Model S had nothing like this level of loss after 50,000 miles!

    Model 3 Performance Battery Degradation One Month (Story)

    Re not using shore power if charged up to set limit - that quote was about using SCHEDULED charging, which is used to avoid using power when it is expensive, so it makes sense that it would not use shore power at all until the scheduled time. Non-scheduled charging will use shore power as...
