    Lifetime Alignment Cost for MS

    so i called and demanded an explanation and the manager just gave me the expected BS excuse that the teslas are more complicated computers and require the advanced testing, blah blah blah. he really wouldnt do anything. she said if i wasnt satisfied, he would refund me the $324 lifetime, but...

    Lifetime Alignment Cost for MS

    i live in the socal area and was looking to get a lifetime alignment started on my 2015 70D MS due to the fact that my last set of tires wore unevenly (more on the inner wall). most places said they didnt do it. i finally found a firestone in the area that said they would do it. i went today...

    needless to say super pissed today. we parked in a neighborhood area in Los Angeles and went hiking today. when came back, saw a huge dent in my nose cone. that appears to be the only thing damaged. on the photos, it looks like tape is coming off, but its the clear bra that has been damaged...

    Problem with connections after factory reset

    i had my emc chip replaced on my 2015 Model S 70D in June, and seems to have a problem with the "navigation" voice response (when you press the right side of the scroll wheel). the mic doesnt seem to pick up my voice now for some reason. i also went out of town in June/July/August for around...

    How would i calculate how much it cost me to charge?

    so does this mean if i charge 6 hours to get my 150miles at 20 amps, the calculation is this? (240v*20a/1000)*.10*6 = $2.88 does ran349's calculation take into account my 20amps?
  23. J

    How would i calculate how much it cost me to charge?

    pardon my extreme ignorance, ive been driving my Tesla 70D Model S since 2015, but not proficient at anything electrical. i charge my car at night in my condo, and my wife gave me an assignment to figure out how much we spend on charging this vehicle. so here are the facts, but not sure how...

    Screen went black...

    haha sorry, guess i should change that. we lived in dallas, bought car in dallas, but have lived in LA for past 3 years. thanks so much!
  25. J

    Screen went black...

    yea, i hope you arent right either haha. but even if you arent right, it sounds like the eMMC is going to fail most likely as a matter of time. i live in the LA, CA area.....does anyone trust other 3rd party auto shops to fix this? or just go back to tesla?
  26. J

    Screen went black...

    extremely helpful, thanks so much Akikiki. awesome explanation. it certainly sounds like my problem. esp since my car is 2015, with 50K miles on it now, and im noticing maps being an issue lately.

    Screen went black...

    ohhhh boy. i must confess im pretty auto illiterate and alot of what you are saying is greek to me. ive read a bit about that link you sent me, and it does appear to have some of my problems, namely, · Center display (MCU) is black and wont power on · 3G/LTE connection lost frequently where...

    Screen went black...

    so i have a 2015 Model S 70D and today when i took car out of garage (it was charged and happy), the screen refused to turn on. when this usually happens, i reset the screen by putting car in park, pressing brake, and pressing both scroll buttons until the T pops up, usually between 30-60...

    "Charge Current" keeps changing back to 40A

    its interesting, i had a chat with tesla.com/support and explained my problem and they had no solution. he said that he preferred that i DONT change the car current charge amperage while charging. now im really confused.
  31. J

    "Charge Current" keeps changing back to 40A

    yes, i have one fixed spot that is mine. however, no signal gets down there. so in order to get tesla updates, i need to go to street level. so maybe i need to change the amperage when im charging?

    "Charge Current" keeps changing back to 40A

    Maps showing up very very slow

    this is everywhere. not at my condo. just on major streets in west LA. i have a 2015 Model S, so its also MCU1. it says LTE on the screen most of the time, so i assume its on LTE.

    Maps showing up very very slow

    when i press the map button to show maps, to zoom in to where im looking more closely, i start the timer. there is a red arrow only with ALL blank tiles. it takes about 20 seconds for the tiles to fill in, and then another 5-7 seconds or so for traffic colors to show up. im in the los angeles...

    Maps showing up very very slow

    hoping someone has some advice for me. i live in a condo in LA where i mostly park underground with no cell or wifi coverage. as a result, its hard to get updates. i also work from home. every once in a while, i try and park in front of the building (has to be right in front) to catch the...

    Model S stops all of a sudden once i drive off.

    dont think thats it homey. seat beat buckled. still occurs.
  38. J

    Model S stops all of a sudden once i drive off.

    yes, i shift car into drive, getting ready to leave my location, and the vehicle goes into park and stops immediately. i dont think its an open door issue or me lifting off the seat.
  39. J

    Model S stops all of a sudden once i drive off.

    chatting with tesla online now...they are saying this... I believe the vehicle may be having a parking brake issue that would need to be fixed at service.
  40. J

    Model S stops all of a sudden once i drive off.

    this has happened more and more frequently lately. so i get in the car, get ready to drive off, and after a split second, the car immediately goes into Park on its own and stops. its very alarming and surprising. there is nothing in front of me, no obstacles or anything like that. seems to...

  42. J

    12V Battery Requires service

    ok thanks guys. i made an appt today with the app. the reason i was wondering the opposite to this was that i was chatting with tesla support today and they said it wasnt covered under warranty. but lets see what the service center says.

    12V Battery Requires service

    got this message this morning. few questions...my car has 45K miles, and is about 3.5 years old. 1. how much does this cost at a tesla service center to replace? 2. is it under the 4 year, 50K warranty coverage? 3. are these "easy" to change yourself? 4. usually how long will car last without...

    Close call...

    why? not sure what you mean? something has updated for this year?
  46. J

    Close call...

    yea i think i agree. although the tweet seems to suggest these cars are superior to others due to the autopilot right? could pretty much any car do this with the same alert driver?
  47. J

    Close call...

    Daniel Hernandez on Twitter are all teslas supposed to stop like this automatically? I don’t think mine does that. in fact i got into a similar accident last year where the car didnt stop at all. Want to make sure im not missing a setting that needs to be adjusted. i own an autopilot 1...

    Does anyone use summons regularly?

    of course i played with it more when it first came out. but i havent used it in months. yesterday, i tried using on my phone and key fob. i was in a tight spot that i had to reverse about 2 more feet. there were no obstructions. i activated the summons and it attempted to back up, then...
