    Warning!! 2021.4.6 - autosteer disengages without input!!

    Probably the third time I've had to mention it in this thread, but we're not talking about "take over immediately" alarm, we're talking about the "ding-dong", as if you just moved the steering wheel to disengage AP, but tacc is still on.

    Warning!! 2021.4.6 - autosteer disengages without input!!

    What's with your reading comprehension. We proved it's NOT lane lines and dirty cameras in this case. Those don't make a ding-dong disengagement. And elon has addressed this before, FSD doesn't rely on lane lines to map its drivable surface, and there are two computers running in parallel, 4...

    Warning!! 2021.4.6 - autosteer disengages without input!!

    Sounds like a faulty torque sensor in your steering wheel. Going from AP engaged to TACC only with the ding-dong chime is what normally happens when you start turning the steering wheel with AP engaged. The vibrations in the road or weight of the wheel itself is tripping yours way too easily...

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    I see. Well as I said I'm referring to the browser being completely broken (frozen white from top to bottom) without the ability to go to any site. The new re-written teslawaze works just fine for me, IF my browser is working directly after a scroll wheel reset.

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    Explain? It's not that site in particular that stopped working. The whole browser turns blank no matter which page you try to visit. During the 1-2 days it is working before needing another reset, it works great.

    Another minor change is the PNRD "D" will be blue instead of white when AP is enabled.

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    My browser with qTesla Waze worked 100% of the time 2016-2018. Literally every day of my commute. Now it never lasts more than a couple days after the last scroll wheel reset, if at all. Horrible loss of functionality, because if you've used that page before you know how great it was to drive with.

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    Charge-gate is over. They fixed it a few weeks ago.

    Is lack of no automatic hold for a 2017 Model S, software or hardware limit?

    I would argue software limitation. While the PMS motor of the Y/3 is used to get down to 0 mph for the auto hold feature, there is no reason the model S can't gently actuate the brake to achieve the same thing. I disagree with the above poster, I think a computer could do it smoother than a...

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    According to tesla's page, the throttling only made about a < 5 minute difference. I guess this confirms it. You're really not hitting that peak for long.

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    Be honest, are you actually happy with tesla removing the limit considering the downside, your battery pack will die faster? Esp with your travel usage. I'm honestly conflicted

    "Service required, car may not restart", battery coolant heater needs replacing, safe to drive?

    Was driving home after a cold night and got that message for about 2 seconds on my IC. Called support and they said the battery coolant heater needs to be replaced. Next appointment isn't available for the next 5 days. Am I safe to drive it until then? Unfortunately I have to work and that would...

    I get 150kw on mine still. Ya'll need to arrive to the supercharger with 10%, that's the sweet spot. 40%+ beyond starts tapering off. Utilize www.abetterrouteplanner.com

    Anyone try adding more panels?

    Now that the price dropped 30%+ it's economical for me to add more panels. I would keep the same inverter (mine doesn't clip), gets to about 5.5kw max on 7.1kw inverter. It's my understanding that oversizing the system is the most economical route to expansion. What's the best way to go about...

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    Got my car back after 64GB daughterboard install, part took 1 week to come in, came out to $320 (requested to skip diagnostic). Sadly one of the problems I was having returned the next day...I opened a podcast, dragged the progress bar to skip ahead to the middle, and 30 seconds later get...

    Tesla now repairing MCU1 with a new Tegra card for less than $500

    Here's mine: Also, super lame that I scheduled this appointment 3 weeks ago, specifically asked to order the part and skip the diagnostic, and they still waited until I dropped off the car to order it.

    How I Recovered Half of my Battery's Lost Capacity

    After your experiment was complete, continuing the calibration routine seems like a lot of work to change what is essentially a display inaccuracy. As long as you understand the "why", I am not concerned about small changes in the displayed range estimate until I'm at <100 mi and I need to...

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    So I got a notification about an upgrade being complete (never initiated one). Then couldn't connect to the car via app at all. When I got in the car, all my settings had reset to factory defaults. I still had profiles and homelink locations though. Just had to go through my settings and turn...

    Tesla now repairing MCU1 with a new Tegra card for less than $500

    I don't think 8x capacity = 8x longevity. That was disproven by the tesla owner who works in data recovery and did a microscope inspection on an old eMMC. He revealed that the failure was due to silicone degradation in the chip's controller and not necessarily excessive write cycles...

    Tesla now repairing MCU1 with a new Tegra card for less than $500

    Honestly I think it's just cause early Model S owners are in the minority now. They are focused on model 3, Y, and soon Cybertruck. If this was a model 3 issue it would get squashed quickly.

    How hard should I have to torque the steering wheel to keep autopilot engaged?

    There's definitely something wrong with your sensor. It takes me one finger of force resting above the 9 o'clock scroll wheel

    NHTSA Investigates Failing MCUs

    Amazing if true. Source? So they just replace the "daughterboard", a $120 part? Anyone have more details? Does this part have the same eventual defect? @EV-Fixme thoughts?

    Are you sure that twitter post is talking about AP1? Tesla hasn't really touched that for awhile and has no access to the mobile eye firmware. My nags still seem to be 60 ish seconds, but they do instantly pop up at overpasses if I'm not applying pressure. So maybe if you're in an area with...

    Interesting take...my home inspector tested all safety features of the garage before I closed on the sale, I think it's a required liability item. Like if you leave your water heater turned too high, liability falls on the homeowner, not the installer, there's a few legal cases about this...

    AP1 ONLY Please -- life after 2018.50.6

    A lot of people afraid of their garage closing on them here but if your garage is following proper safety protocol, it should have sensors on it to reverse the door if anything is in the path (you can adjust these to be high enough for the belly of the car). Also, as a backup, torque sensors...

    I also got the email asking for more information, from the Federal Investigator, Office of Defect at dot.gov. I submitted a NHSTA report about a month ago . When you reply about your safety concerns, I encourage everyone to focus on the fact that backup cameras became mandatory in 2018 for...

    Why I'm Scared to Leave My Tesla At Home

    Again it's not a legal thing. You can do whatever you want to your house, it just won't be "in code". Which is only something you need to worry about if selling or renting.

    Why I'm Scared to Leave My Tesla At Home

    Spend a couple hundred on a real 220v outlet. You can still change the max current to something like 5 or 10a in the settings. And absolutely take the fridge off the same circuit, that's making it worse for sure. I would even swap out the GFCI for a normal outlet, just the circuit breaker is...

    2016 build here, and I'm starting to see early signs of MCU failure. Could a side effect of software updates but in the past few months I've seen a couple issues that I've never seen in 4+ years. Once, my car was just black when I got in and put my foot on the brake. It reset itself before I...

    Incorrect. Browser has been broken for almost 2 years now. v10 is still noticeably slower and choppier than v8 was. Many had range/supercharging speeds cut, and this isn't helping you have a "longer lasting" battery, because your battery has an unlimited warranty. It's only saving Tesla money...

    What does this do? Keep warmer batteries cooler and colder batteries warmer during higher SOC? Would it be advantages to set my charge limit to 78% to avoid wear and tear and slightly higher consumption to run the pumps?
