    MCU2 Upgrade Audio EQ Balancing - Coming From MCU1

    I have been patiently waiting for any feedback from Tesla, but nonecso far. Have sent them a mail with an official complaint and demanding a solution. So far no reply. Has anybody got any feedback o this matter? If nothing happens, I intend to take them to court. (I am not joking)...

    I did the work a few weeks ago, if you want I can walk you through how I went about it. I took pictures of most of the steps. Would that be the info you are looking for?

    Unswitched power

    I had seen the thread before, but the link in it is broken. Also the picture was not clear as to which connector was the correct one. So I did some measuring myself... The top left connector is what you want, grey cable is plus, black is negative so I hooked up a cable to allow some extra lights...

    12 Volt Always On for Small Freezer

    I 've been looking at a solution, but found nothing better than changing the ODB2 fuse to 10 Amps (my fridge - custom built- is 9 Amps). Other than that, one could go through the firewall and draw current straight from the 12V battery.

    Unswitched power

    Thanks for the reply Aerodyne, but no, that thread does not provide the answer. (mine is a 2017 and quite a few solutions are no longer applicable. However, one solution is to use the ODB2 (I changed the fuse to 10A. The wire is big enough for that.) I use that to keep the fridge on (9Amps)...

    Fogging camera

    I experienced the same. It is condensation that builds up in certain weather/temperature conditions. The camera (in my 2017 model) has a small heating element ( not very powerfull) built in which should help clear the fog. Warming up the car to higher temperature might also help. Other then...

    Interior map light upgrade

    Can't say where, but I vaguely remember one guy taking them out and tamper with them. Most probably in this forum. Maybe have a deep search.

    Help identifying cable on left/driver side left panel

    The picture is not very clear, but the shape of the connector makes me think of coax cable. (perhaps to connect an antenna.) You mention a service manual. Does it cover 2017 and inwards? If so, can you point me in the right direction to get a hold of it? (I found a connector left and right in...

    Front Footwell Lights. Any way to have them remain on?

    I decided on another approach. I bought a cheap set of stick-on LED lamps that can be plugged into the cigarette lighter. But instead of doing that I powered them from an unused fuse an ran the leads under the dash.

    Unswitched power

    All I can find on the center console is the 12V socket and the 2nd row USB feed. Both are switched... There could be a source behind the right rear wheel cover. Supposed to be for the motor to open the trunk.

    Insulating the panoramic roof in winter

    I used this: 7 layers. Often used for mobile homes. You can buy them in big sheets. Cut them to size, had them trimmed (tape was included). Te side windows don't need fixing. Roof and trunk get held by the sun screens. Front window fixes with suction cups (also included). The insulation effect...

    Front Footwell Lights. Any way to have them remain on?

    No, but I would be I interested as well. I recently changed the lights to blue and it looks so fab, I would be happy to have them on all the time. One way would be to connect them to the ambient light wiring. This would be found in the door, or under the dash... I might have a look one of these...

    Ultra High Fidelity Sound, opinions from true audiophiles?

    This is exactly my thoughts. Until... I upgraded to MCU2. Don't know what they did, but the decency of their premium sound system has seriously degraded since. I am making formal complaints to Tesla.

    How do you remove sliding armrests?

    Be careful with this procedure. As of 2017 model, things are probably different. I took out the center console and thus got the whole cup holder box off. From the bottom I can see srews that seem to hold the sliding armrests in place. It might still be possible to yank them off. But I would be...

    Raam gaat niet dicht Model S

    Het meest logische is dat de schakelaar in de deur kapot is. Het lijkt alsof deze blijft 'plakken' in de down positie. Dat kan effectief plakken zijn, of een slecht contact zijn. In ieder geval moet de schakelaar eerst bekeken worden.

    Switched 12v power line to tap into?

    One wire is for the 12V socket (15A), the other one feeds the 12 to 5 V transformer which feeds the 2nd row USB ports. BTW: the USB connectors allow an easy upgrade to move one USB data port to the glove box where you can safely tuck a USB or SSD disk to record sentry on and play music from. I...

    How many kWH will be used in CAMP MODE

    Hi Candleflame, I am not certain about the 20%, but when we sleep in the car we much prefer not to use camp mode. The main reason being that the screen remains on (amongst other things). We find the light emitted from the screen quite annoying in our otherwise perfectly dark car (we use...

    DIY Almost Free Super Bright LEDs

    I agree with the above, but damaging your car or get a window busted because a lamp will fail is of a different level. Especially because lamps Will fail at one point, be they OEM or after market. It's just a ticking bomb... And one day, bam, window broken or chrome trim damaged. Unbelievable...

    How many kWH will be used in CAMP MODE

    I understand everything about it. (When in camp mode, not available under 20% SOC) I am only trying to point out that one can skip camp mode and keep the HCAV on regardless. So the 20% SOC restriction is no longer there. (unless it would be applicable outside camp mode as well, In which case a...

    How many kWH will be used in CAMP MODE

    Sorry, what I meant, is that it is not necessary to put the suitcase, because it is not necessary to use camp-mode. I do not see the advantage of it. So I just keep the HVAC awake to sleep and shut the car down. This results in low loss of energy overnight and waking the car up is as easy as...

    How many kWH will be used in CAMP MODE

    Which should not be necessary. You can keep the airco on via the main screen. There are several options, like 'dog-mode'. But there is also the option to keep airco or heating on, even if the car is shut down. (I have the suitcase under the mattress as support. In the morning I wake up the car...

    DIY Almost Free Super Bright LEDs

    This seems unlikely. They may well take the power from the connector, but not from the light itself. It would mean that whenever the OEM led breaks down, one would be in trouble... That would be very bad design...

    DIY Almost Free Super Bright LEDs

    The folding could actually work as a heat dissipator. But since these are the footwell lights, they only work for entering the car. By the time they would get hot, they are switched back off again. For those interested, i find the blue led awesome. Will post pictures later.

    DIY Almost Free Super Bright LEDs

    You probably solved it by now. But just in general: soldering needs to be done neatly. And any electrician connection needs to make good contact. To fix the problem you need a multimeter to measure if you get 12 volts at the connecting wire. If not maybe the fuse is gone. If you do get 12v, then...

    MCU2 Upgrade Audio EQ Balancing - Coming From MCU1

    I am happy that I am not the only one noticing the difference. I have a 2017 S with premium audio. Since the upgrade to MCU2, indeed I experience less bass in the rear speakers. The car went in for service yesterday and Tesla claims it is perfectly ok. (Their test being that they got into...

    MCU2 upgrade mogelijk, maar hoe?

    Vooreerst is er het wegvallen van de radio. Je kan nog enkel via TuneIn luisteren. Dat valt soms wat tegen omdat de verbinding niet altijd stabiel is waardoor de verbinding soms weg valt. Bovendien kan je ook niet meer van station wisselen door op de stuurknop te drukken. Dat moet nu via het...

    En ja, de computer voor HW3 wordt geplaatst, én de schermen worden alle 2 vervangen. Dat is één van de minpunten, de schermen bij mij zijn van beduidend lagere kwaliteit. Vooral de Instrument Cluster is van veel slechtere kwaliteit. Ik gaf dat gisteren aan toen ik de wagen binnen bracht bij het...

    Convert 12V Outlet to Unswitched ("Always On")

    Hi Akikiki, I looked for the thread you talk about, but could not find it. If you could point me there... I am looking for the 12V socket to be "always on" in my 2017 Model S. Or another permanent 12 V supply of at least 10Amps. If anyone has a solution, I'd love to hear it! Thanks beforehand, Kurt
