    Servo noise when heater is on

    I forgot to post a follow-up to my own thread. Oops! It turned out in my case that a mouse had gotten in and built a nest that got sucked into the fan (the mouse didn't). They cleared out the nest, and it's been fine ever since.

    Rear seat heater not working?

    I haven't used the rear seat heaters in my car yet, since my two kids have been in carseats since I've had the car. My daughter is finally tall enough to not need one, so I told her she would finally get to enjoy the heated seats. But it doesn't seem to come on. I turn it on on the max setting...

    Servo noise when heater is on

    Interesting - I'd love to hear what the diagnosis (and fix) is. Is yours still under warranty? (I got mine 2 years ago from Tesla, so I still have about 2 years on the warranty)

    OEM Facelift on older car, would it add resale value?

    Personally it would make me suspect that there was front end damage, and an updated nosecone was put on when doing the repairs. And that would make me wonder if everything was repaired properly. So for me personally, it would decrease value.

    Servo noise when heater is on

    I have a 2015 70D, and yesterday the heater started making weird noises. Initially, on my way home, it made sort of a repeated clicking noise - kind of like a fan hitting something. I turned the heater off the rest of the way, and hoped the windows wouldn't fog up. This morning I tried the...

    2016 Model S70D

    Tesla's prices are firm, and cars come with either a 2 year warranty (to max of 100k odometer miles) or 4 year/50k mile warranty (for vehicles that are less than 4 years old and currently have less than 50k miles). Prices have dropped a lot in the past 6 months. I bought mine about 8 months ago...

    2013 Tesla Model S P85 Rebuilt 25k

    The full charge range is 292 miles? With an 85 kwh battery? Usually P85s have a max range around 260 miles or less.

    Cold drafts, freezing occupants

    Interesting. Yes, I have a sunroof. But the primary draft we felt was coming from the bottom of the doors. I didn't specifically feel up around the sunroof though.

    Cold drafts, freezing occupants

    I'll check with the service center about the weather strips, thanks! I need to tell them about condensation in the taillights anyway. I couldn't feel any warm air coming out from the vents in the back of the center console (for rear passengers). Maybe a very slight airflow. The cabin heating...

    Cold drafts, freezing occupants

    Unfortunately mine is not a refreshed model. That seems odd that this wouldn't fit earlier ones - that presumably mean something about the footwell vents changed when they refreshed the front fascia?

    Cold drafts, freezing occupants

    While driving home from Thanksgiving in 10 F weather, despite having the heater blasting for the entire 45 minute trip, I and the rest of my family never felt warm. Ok, the seat heaters and steering wheel heater help, but our feet were freezing. Feeling down to the left of the driver seat, it...

    Four TPMS gen 1 for sale, $90

    I bought a set of 19" wheels with snow tires last winter while still shopping for a Tesla, and ended up getting a 2015 (whereas I had been expecting to get a 2013 or early 2014). So I had to put gen 2 TPMS in the wheels, and have the gen 1 ones for sale now. My understanding is that the person I...

    Why are there 4 cold weather icons on the main screen???

    Wow, I'm really glad I haven't done the update, and have no intention of doing so. Did they lay off all their QA people or something? Every new thing I read about v9 seems worse than the last.

    Can I *not* update to version 9?

    I find it to be a helpful way of keeping track of other cars around me.

    Petition to demand "camera on top, media player on bottom" be retained in UI

    I fully agree. I have no interest in having half the screen permanently dedicated to the map. 95% of my driving is in places I am very familiar with, and do not need a map. So I greatly prefer using that screen real estate for the media player and rear view camera. Not being able to do that is a...

    Can I *not* update to version 9?

    Many of the improvements in software version 9 seem to be for cars with AP, which mine does not have. From my perspective, for non-AP cars, the biggest change is to the user interface. Personally, it's a change I do not like. I really like being able to have the rear view camera and media player...

    Off-Topic: From the "Tesla Hate Crimes" thread

    And to me what is most bizarre is that these people who have been paranoid about government overreach in the past, are now supporting an administration that is pushing towards authoritarianism, and massive government overreach. Trying to block California from being able to have its own emissions...

    Off-Topic: From the "Tesla Hate Crimes" thread

    I do agree about how the right wing media has been portraying Tesla. I think part of it likely also ties in with a disdain for "intellectualism" and science. Part of it may also stem from the view that climate change is a myth that we scientists are spreading to somehow line our own pockets, and...

    Off-Topic: From the "Tesla Hate Crimes" thread

    It isn't patriotism. It's fierce nationalism. All authoritarians have managed to seize power by stoking nationalism in their followers. It's a "you're with us or you're against us" mentality. They are using the flag to try to make it seem that anyone who disagrees with them must be against the...

    Off-Topic: From the "Tesla Hate Crimes" thread

    Yup. I hate people who use an over-the-top display of nationalism to build themselves up and manipulate other people. When you look at this picture below, do you think "man, he really loves this country"? What I see is a snake oil salesman who has learned how to manipulate people.

    Tesla Hate Crimes

    When I got to my car today after work, a family with two middle or high school age kids was standing in the parking lot. The kids had been taking pictures of my car on their cellphones for a while. :) I showed them around the car some. They were practically giddy. The first day I went to pick...

    Off-Topic: From the "Tesla Hate Crimes" thread

    I agree that many do not see it as a choice. When someone is born into a very religious family, that brain washes them from birth to put blind faith in a book people wrote thousands of years ago, their upbringing has mostly taken away their ability to make a choice. Technically they can make a...

    Off-Topic: From the "Tesla Hate Crimes" thread

    Very well said all around. It's all a good illustration of a fundamental societal problem - we don't teach people how to think when they are in school. We should be helping them build core reasoning skills, be skeptical of claims, etc.. On the issue of the class warfare aspect of this: the...

    Did you name your Model S, and if so, what?

    I made the mistake of letting my kids name my red Tesla. It is now known as "Magma McFirestorm". :)

    Connectors for interior LED lights

    My car doesn't have the premium interior lighting, so I want to use some LED strip lights to improve the lighting in a few areas. Instead of cutting the wires in the car, I'd like to be able to put connectors on the LED strips so I can plug them into the existing connectors for lights my car...

    2015 70D - for sale

    Ultimately you need to get the option codes. How you get them depends. Since I got mine through Tesla, it shows up in the archived list at EV-CPO. The VIN ends in 087535. If I have the options column visible, and click on that, I can see all the codes for what it has. Mine seems to be somewhat...

    2015 70D - for sale

    Yeah, I don't see why someone would pay more for a Tesla without warranty from Vroom than they would for a Tesla with warranty, directly from Tesla.

    My CPO story - a long and winding journey to Tesla ownership

    Oh - I checked, I don't have the interior lighting that comes with the premium package (at least not the lighting strip in the door panel), but I do have the exterior lighting that comes with it (door handle lights, fog lights, puddle lights). My understanding is that the wiring is all there...

    2015 70D - for sale

    My CPO story - a long and winding journey to Tesla ownership

    I mentioned that I would post some more recent photos to show what the rear was like after they tried buffing it out. These pictures are taken after I gave the car a quick waterless wash with Duragloss Aquawax waterless wash.

    My CPO story - a long and winding journey to Tesla ownership

    Ahh, that's very helpful. I forgot that you could see the option codes at EV-CPO. This is confusing - I'm trying to find more info about what the difference between TP03 "Power and Lighting package" is compared to "premium interior and lighting package". On a google search, the primary place...

    My CPO story - a long and winding journey to Tesla ownership

    Sweet! Thanks! :) I wasn't sure if you had it or not. So the Monroney doesn't list the Premium Interior and Lighting Package. So - why does it have the power liftgate and at least some (maybe all?) of the other features from that package? I love a good mystery. :)

    I've asked the OA, but haven't gotten any response from him. I'll try the service center. Thanks for the suggestion.

    My CPO story - a long and winding journey to Tesla ownership

    Excellent, that's very helpful, thanks. That will help me identify whether or not it has these lights. It looks like in early 2015 this premium lighting package morphed into the "premium interior and lighting package", when they eliminated the tech package, making some of those items standard...

    My CPO story - a long and winding journey to Tesla ownership

    Ok, I'll check, thanks! Is this lighting on whenever the car is on, or only when the doors are open?

    My CPO story - a long and winding journey to Tesla ownership

    Where in the door panels is this lighting? Are you referring to the puddle lights?

    My CPO story - a long and winding journey to Tesla ownership

    According to some threads from April of 2016, the power liftgate was still part of the premium package. If that's true, then it seems that mine likely has the premium package since it has the power liftgate, lighted door handles, and at least some of the other items on the list. The headliner is...

    My CPO story - a long and winding journey to Tesla ownership

    Based on the VIN number (in the 87,000 range) it is from around July of 2015, which is after the tech package disappeared. In scanning the forums and google, I found a post from back in April of 2015 when someone was listing items that Tesla says are included in the premium package which were...

    My CPO story - a long and winding journey to Tesla ownership

    Here's a question that I've been wondering about: My car doesn't have the tech package, because it was built after the tech package was eliminated, with some of the options becoming standard, and the rest thrown into the premium interior package (power liftgate, chrome accents by fog lights and...

    My CPO story - a long and winding journey to Tesla ownership

    When I inspected the car I only took these two photos. I'll find time soon to take a new photo of the rear scrapes. The OA said that in the past they would have completely repainted that part, but now they just reduce the price instead. I've had a really good body shop in the area do some...

    My CPO story - a long and winding journey to Tesla ownership

    Yup, I got to inspect the car before signing for the full amount. Here are the pictures that Tesla originally sent (I think the original buyer may not have received the photos of the rear scrape or a slight dent in the black plastic at the bottom of the front of the car): I also want to...
