    Model S Refresh Long Range - GPS/Location off by blocks. Sometimes Miles

    Had this same issue and they replaced a bunch of parts including the mcu. They replaced the antenna on a previous visit but that wasn’t the issue. These are the parts they replaced which fixed the issue: TLA,AP-T,CONN- Q,MCU-Z,MSX FUSED. Someone on another thread said this is a known issue...

    GPS accuracy new model S Plaid

    Same as dgs said. I including pics of nav which I included in the service call. I took video as well but they never asked for it. It’s still working normally few hundred miles in. Good luck. I hope this is the last of the issues.

    Model s navigation location incorrect

    Received the car back after 3 days. They replaced the mcu and it seems to be working. This is from the invoice “ Parts Replaced or Added Part Quantity TLA,AP-T,CONN- Q,MCU-Z,MSX FUSED” Looks like it worked, from the few miles I’ve driven so far 🤷‍♂️

    Model s navigation location incorrect

    A few months ago it did, it fixed it self and I wish I had video or an image to show service but I was just happy it fixed itself. This last time I was hoping it fixed itself again but I took video and multiple images. It stayed that way for weeks and never did. Car is in the shop now and they...

    Model s navigation location incorrect

    They replaced my antenna but that didn’t help. I have an appointment next week and they are scheduled to replace the harness, and entire mcu 🤷‍♂️ Let you know if it works 🤞I miss autopilot

    2021 Refreshed Model S w/ 21" tires - suspension issue?

    Def does. It does it in while in auto or comfort. I just wish it made a bigger difference. Maybe I’m expecting too much.

    2021 Refreshed Model S w/ 21" tires - suspension issue?

    Hm. Ok I always run it on low because it looks better 😆 but the car raises itself when the road gets rough. I personally don’t feel the difference but who knows. Hopefully this gets addressed soon or if at all.

    GPS Sometimes Tracks in the Wrong Direction

    This started a few months ago, then went away so I never made an issue of it. It started happening a few weeks ago and I finally recorded video and took multiple pics. Had it in the shop for 2 days, they replaced the gps antenna. Same issue, almost seems worse. Autopilot was a main reason for...

    GPS Antenna Replacement - Cutting out rear windshield??

    My 21 MSLR was in the shop for the car location being off 50-100 feet, making autopilot, navigation, homelink(auto) useless. These are big deals and very frustrating. They said they replaced the gps antenna. Still having the issue. 🤦‍♂️

    2021 Refreshed Model S w/ 21" tires - suspension issue?

    I have not. I do feel a difference between sport and comfort so I guess it is working. It’s just that comfort is way too rough on nyc roads. In comfort it seems as if the initial impact from a bump is very abrupt/harsh then it gets bouncy afterwards as If it’s trying to smooth it out. In...

    2021 Refreshed Model S w/ 21" tires - suspension issue?

    I have both the 19s and 21 arachnids and the ride on both is equally harsh. Very disappointed in the suspension in “comfort”. It feels like comfort should be sport in most other cars. I currently have a 16 model s with coil suspension as a loaner and it seems infinitely more smooth over the...

    Model s navigation location incorrect

    Model S refresh Car is constantly about 200 feet off it’s true location. Essentially makes navigation, autopilot and homelink(auto) useless. Hear it can be an antenna issue but they have to remove the entire rear glass to replace it. I’m certainly very nervous about this car out of...

    2022/2023 model s refreshed refresh changes?

    Any other changes noticed other then the headlights and taillights? Swivel screen? Additional Ambient lighting since wires are present? Passenger dash screen? Removed ultrasonic sensors?

    Model S refresh rattles/creaks

    I had the same exact noise and it was also a loose subframe bolt. They tightened it up and I haven’t heard it since.

    How to clean the sand/salt from undercarriage?

    ryobi makes a 50 dollar one at HD that will do a great job at rinsing the undercarriage, but I have read on a few forums that high pressure UC wash isn’t recommended. 🤷‍♂️

    Model S refresh rattles/creaks

    I’m curious if we have the same issue. I have an intermittent rattle coming from the yoke/front dash area. I seem to have isolated it to the lower part of the dash. The “shelf” of the dash console screen. I’ve grabbed it to stabilize it when running over bumps and it solves the issue. I have...

    Stolen Tesla Leads Police On Wild Pursuit

    Maybe it was a strongarm car jacking and not ridiculous? Or les pose this question, if there was no fear of getting caught since you know they won’t chase you, what environment does that create? Slippery slope

    Plaid Suspension / Steering clicking issue.

    I believe it is what holds most of the suspension components. So …yeah. Pretty important to torque that properly

    Wrong time Zone

    Actually, it wasn’t in service for that reason. I brought it in for the time issue about a month and a half ago, they couldn’t fix it then but stated they would have to send me an OTA patch. On the last service visit, they were going to fix a rattle and install the trunk cover I didn’t...

    Plaid Impressions, Road Noise & Real Solutions

    I agree. Test drove the eqs last weekend at an eqs event and wasn’t impressed. Shape wasn’t flattering and surprisingly there was a d noticeable amount of rattles. Unsure if they are still pre production? I would not switch until I get wowed, still love the Model S

    Wrong time Zone

    They finally fixed it. Said they had to escalate the issue to engineering and they fixed it on their end. 🤷‍♂️

    Model S Refresh Mud/Splash Guards

    Here is what is embossed on the flaps. I asked the seller prior to buying if it fit the plaid/long range 2021 and he said yes. Clearly it doesn’t and wasn’t designed for it.

    Model S Refresh Mud/Splash Guards

    Does not fit. I am trying to get a refund with zero success so far. Seller has stopped communicating. Fyi

    Plaid Suspension / Steering clicking issue.

    Service center fixed it. Was a improperly torqued subframe. They torqued it. Alignment. It’s gone. FYI.

    Plaid Suspension / Steering clicking issue.

    Car is in the shop right now for this very same issue. Any updates?

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

    Not a crazy Star Wars fan, but IMO it has a stark resemblance. “STORM TROOPER”

    Service could not fix it. States engineering is going to send me a patch OTA. Still waiting, very frustrating

    Model S refresh rattles/creaks

    The service center is going to label me as annoying but I refuse to accept these defects in a car of this price. Shoot, my daughters Nissan Sentra has ZERO rattles in it. Coming from similar prices bmws and RRs, I expect similar fit and finish. I hope this isn’t a fools errand.

    Model S refresh rattles/creaks

    Had one rattle in the driver side rear door that they had to fix. Service tightened a Loose wiring harness. I still hear it slightly. Second rattle/creaking noise coming from the front area when backing out of the driveway and cutting the wheel left or right. Or driving forward slowly...

    Plaid Impressions, Road Noise & Real Solutions

    Same, no wind noise, all tire. First ev but it is very distracting. Just wondering if it’s so much more noticeable because of the lack of engine noise.

    More Price increases…..

    I think plaid stays the same. LR goes up again to close the gap. Elon mentioned he will be adjusting pricing based on demand, EDD for LR is June - insane.
  34. Plaidish

    More Price increases…..

    Thanx for explaining what inflation is 👍
  35. Plaidish

    More Price increases…..

    Looks like in addition to the Y and 3 increases, the Model S LR went up 5000 to 95000. I suspect another 5000 by the end of the year to close the gap to the plaid.

    Refresh arachnids with or without lugnut covers?

    Do you like it with the factory lug nut cover center thing or with the aftermarket center cap?

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Unsure if I’m crazy but in the beginning I experienced the same things you just described. Now with 2000 miles on, unsure if the car learns or just the recent updates but it is sooo much smoother. It brakes smooth, much sooner than before. I have to say I’m VERY pleased with it thus far...

    Plaid Yoke Turn Signals

    To be honest. It’s been pretty good. Lets see over the next few weeks.

    Plaid Yoke Turn Signals

    I agree with the customization option but I love the update. It prevents alot of the accidental presses that plagued my drives. It’s not going away, so the only hope is they make it more livable.

    Wrong time Zone

    I’m curious, if I factory reset it shouldn’t it be bare bones firmware? Why would my software be any different than any other model S refresh. It may be a pain to reconfigure profiles etc but i don’t understand how my car is different and needs a patch.
  41. Plaidish

    Wrong time Zone

    They were unable to fix it. States they are developing a firmware to correct it and will OTA it to me. I’m screwed

    Model S CCS adapter

    With the recent announcement of a CCS adapter for the model 3/Y, any word on the street about one for the S/X, specifically the refresh (if it matters) Would be nice to be able to fast charge at more stations if needed in a pinch.
  43. Plaidish

    Wrong time Zone

    Car is still there. Unsure why they needed to keep it overnight. Hope it isn’t a complicated lengthy fix. Car is still stuck in service mode

    It’s at the service center now. Lets see if they come across any solutions.

    19" Tesla Model S Cardenio Wheel From 2021 Plaid/LR with Pirelli Pzero tires and stock TPMS

    Less than 100 miles on them. Removed and swapped shortly after delivery. Prefer local delivery, NYC/LI but will ship at buyers expense(shipping, packing, insurance). I would think around 250-300. 4 wheels, Pirelli Pzero tires, Stock TPMS Asking 2700. Specs: Size: 19X9.5" Front, 19X10.5"...

    Accident in Tesla S....any advice??

    “You don’t need the stress” - that’s fine and ok with some people. But just remember that will cost you as avoiding stress and work usually isn’t free. You can always go through your insurance company if the 3rd party claim is unsatisfactory. But it is never advised to go through your...

    Accident in Tesla S....any advice??

    IMO. If you are clearly not at fault especially with witnesses or video I would always suggest filing a 3rd party claim with the OTHER parties insurance company. By you going your own insurance, they will pay out any damages and injuries themselves and then go after the other insurance company...
