    Back to MCU1?

    Wow. From another post on here I tried the voice command "Switch to USB" and that continues playing from it left off, exactly as it should. I have no idea why the two ways of selecting an input source behave differently. That certainly wouldn't be true of any software I wrote. It would be nice...

    Back to MCU1?

    SC said teslawaze.azurewebsites.net did not load at all on a similar vehicle, and they found no concerns with my vehicle. I think I had 4G from the start though I couldn't swear to it. Currently running 2022.16.3.

    Back to MCU1?

    I'm about to the point of wanting to go back to MCU1. Yeah, I had to reboot every day. But today I have to reload the teslawaze web site every few miles when the browser crashes out to its main screen. And every single time I enter the car I have to bring up the media player, reselect USB, and...

    Voice command taken as browser input

    A weird thing happened today. I pressed the voice button on the steering wheel and said "navigate to (store)". It took the words as input to the browser. Showed a dropdown from the address bar with that phrase and similar phrases shown. Not once in 6.5 years has it done that - it always gets...

    How is your rear camera after MCU1 to MCU2 upgade (dark?)

    Got 2020.48.26. Rear camera view is no better. The miles of charge remaining on the instrument cluster seems to be using a smaller font, unless that's my imagination.

    How is your rear camera after MCU1 to MCU2 upgade (dark?)

    I didn't notice any difference in sound, but I don't have Premium and I am hard of hearing, so .... I would still do the upgrade because it really annoyed me having to reboot every time I got in the car because the browser was hung.

    How is your rear camera after MCU1 to MCU2 upgade (dark?)

    "Me too". 2015 S70D just got MCU2 upgrade Nov 24. Rear camera isn't just darker at night, it's completely black - useless. It's fine during the day, or in a well-lit parking lot. 2020.44.15.

    Upgraded MCU1 to MCU2 - Are you experiencing New Problems?

    After MCU1-to-MCU2 ugrade 2015 S70D: Rear camera isn't just dark it's totally black at night - useless (fine during the day). With MCU1 I could see perhaps 10 feet behind the car. Where's the best link to follow to track this? Music does not resume when I reenter car. I have to bring up media...

    Browser won't download pages

    Update on my situation: email support alternately ignored me or gave content-free replies for a couple of weeks before finally telling me to schedule an appointment for service. Fired up the app and wound up with a mobile service appointment for 8 days later. During the days leading up to it the...

    Browser won't download pages

    Browser remains blank white page? I've got that right now. Tesla say there are no alarming logs, and nothing to indicate MCU is failing. Also "What's New" release notes is blank white page. 2015 S 70D. Multiple varieties of reboots and power offs. If they would integrate Waze into their nav...

    It's too late, my MCU1 Died....

    For the past week I've had totally blank web browser and "What's New" dialog. Persisted through two updates. Is this another symptom of the same thing? I'm at the right time, one month past 4 years on a 2015 S 70D.

    Browser now full screen only s/x on v10

    Sent a bug report before I found this. Also emailed feedback. This was a bonehead change.

    Turn Signal Lever

    That collar or whatever where the lever goes into the column had cracked, and when the lever moved the pieces could get in the way. Pic is of a good one on the loaner, I didn't get a pic of mine when it was broken. The SC replaced it STEERING COLUMN CONTROL MODULE - 1 ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL...

    Service Center wifi

    The Service Center wifi "Tesla Guest" works with my Android phone but not with my Linux laptop. Connection is made, but can't browse/ping. The only incoming packets are ICMP TTL exceeded messages. Is it a captive portal thing? It never redirects my browser anywhere.

    My local utility sends out emails periodically advertising various products. Is there any point to this one? JuiceBox® Pro 40 WiFi-enabled EV Charging Station - 40 Amps Seems like it needs a 14-50 outlet to feed into it. But if I have a 14-50, I already have a cable from Tesla which goes...

    Turn Signal Lever

    Based on my description of the problem, the Service Center has ordered a replacement SCCM ("steering component module" - I don't know what the other "C" is for). We'll have to wait and see if that does the trick. In the same email in which they told me this, they also referred to this as my...

    Turn Signal Lever

    Also, when I push the lever up it is biasing toward me, so that I have unintentionally been turning on the high beams. Once, after completing a right turn, when the lever normally snaps back to center, it instead snapped too far and began signalling a left turn. My annual service center visit is...

    Turn Signal Lever

    Coming up on 3 years with my 2015 S 70D. The turn signal lever has recently become much stiffer to push when signalling a right turn. Still normal when signalling a left turn. Ever heard anything like that before?

    8.0 Music Player Unusable

    December 2017. It stayed broken for a loooooong time. I had given up hope that it would ever get fixed.

    8.0 Music Player Unusable

    I hope I don't jinx it, but in December a ranger came out and replaced my 12v battery and installed 2017.50.2, and finally after nearly two years it is actually shuffling USB music, not just playing one of the same four sequences as it has been doing.

    Firmware 8.1

    I've seen the same for the last several days. As I drive, the map in the browser moves, as if it is still tracking my location, but no icons for me or any incidents or anything. I can't be sure that it coincided with 8.1 though.

    Anyone know of a public charger with power today in the Rochester area? (80mph winds yesterday have left most of the area without power)

    Embedded USB Album Art - How Do I Do It?

    Yes, embedded album art is working for me. I run Ubuntu Linux at home and used the eyeD3 program to embed the folder.jpgs I had around (for Sonos) into the individual mp3 files.

    What are your preferred audio sources?

    <-- old guy I only listen to the 3400 tracks I have on USB, which I've been listening to in one form or another for decades. Zero interest in any streaming services with the possible exception of MLB GameDay - but I can get that from the phone via Bluetooth on the rare occasions I want to.

    Comprehensive USB Bug List

    I find that when I've removed the USB overnight (to add more art) and insert it in the morning, after a brief scan it starts playing in the middle of the track it was in several days ago, rather than where it was when I removed it. Is anyone else seeing that? I can then forward skip through the...

    Media player in 8.0 actually got worse (for local music)

    Twice the car has forgotten that I had shuffle on. But this morning it remembered. I don't know what the trigger is.

    CN Tower Dead Zone

    FYI I stayed at Delta Toronto this weekend and when I went to get in my car it wouldn't unlock. The valet said there was another Tesla there with the same problem, and they'd seen it on BMWs also. Apparently CN Tower creates some kind of dead zone for key fobs. Earlier I had been cursing how my...

    Driver Assistance Features Unavailable

    Well, the past 10 days it has NOT done it every time, and when it does it has cleared up within 3 minutes of driving. I can't tell whether it's due to a software update, or some component needed to be "broken in", or there was some environmental change, or what. So I guess I don't know anything...

    Driver Assistance Features Unavailable

    Every freaking day when I leave work, if there has been any amount of sunshine during the day. Argh. 30 minutes of driving tonight didn't bring it back. I did call Service last week, they didn't have any idea, just pushed out a software update which didn't change anything. Yet it's okay every...

    Hatch won't close, beeps

    It was open for two hours so that's it. I didn't know that was a thing, losing the ability to close. Thanks.

    Hatch won't close, beeps

    Yesterday I was helping my friend move and had some stuff loaded in the trunk but when I pushed the button to close it, it just beeped at me. I thought it might be complaining about an obstruction so I took several tries at moving things around and eventually removing things so that there was...

    Driver Assistance Features Unavailable

    This is a bullshit error message. If there's a problem, tell me where the $!^# it is! Not just "oh something somewhere might be wrong in some manner". I'm seeing it on days when the car is perfectly clean. I live in Western NY, not exactly known for an abundance of sunshine, yet that's the only...

    New Forum Design

    Initial reaction on the desktop is "yuck". Where there used to be nice lists, it now seems like items are strewn about in two dimensions. The profile popup doesn't go away - it's obscuring part of this window as I type this. On the phone, I don't know yet - without Tapatalk I guess I'll have to...

    Why did they put the least important information in the most prominent spot? Put the source at the bottom, in the smallest font.

    NYS Inspection

    Two Great Lakes border this state and I wouldn't call NY either New England or Mid-Atlantic, but whatever. Where are us poor New Yorkers accepted?

    NYS Inspection

    Western/Central New Yorkers, with no Service Center near, what are you doing for NY State Inspection? Just take it to any shop and hope they don't get confused by systems they have to inspect which simply aren't there (exhaust) and hope they don't break anything?

    Calendar sync no longer working

    Since 7.1 calendar sync is no longer working. Android 4.4.4, no change since before I bought the car. I haven't yet tried re-pairing (I shouldn't have to). It does still make a Bluetooth connection and phone calls still work. I don't know how they managed to break this, I didn't think they were...

    Navigation voice cuts out early

    Glad it's not just me. Share the misery! :-) I sent a bug report on it the other day. I'm sure they'd rather spend the effort on some headline-grabbing new feature (just like my management would) but if enough people report it maybe they'll fix this instead.

    Key fob failure - temporary?

    Well, any comparison a consumer cares to make is "valid". Would you say that it's not valid to compare 0-60 time between P85 and a McLaren F1 because they "don't work quite the same way"? People do compare them. And those comparisons are valid to them. Likewise we can compare key fob performance...

    Key fob failure - temporary?

    Unlikely in this case. Alone in the middle of a parking lot where I've not had an issue in the past months.

    Key fob failure - temporary?

    How can I tell what's "close enough"? Normal resting place is about 25 feet from the car through the garage wall up up through the floor. In the same place, I didn't have this issue with the Prius key.

    Key fob failure - temporary?

    When I went out to the parking lot tonight, Model S wouldn't let me in. I pressed the handles, waved the key around, nothing. I had to unlock it from my phone. Luckily it wasn't pouring rain or a blizzard, just cold. Got inside and it wouldn't let me start: "Key not inside car". Bah. Had to...

    Cold weather regen?

    If regen is limited/nonexistent when cold, okay, whatever. If the display of that fact has issues, they can be dealt with. What really disturbs me is I take my foot off the pedal and the car doesn't slow down. For a couple of months now (before it got cold outside) the car always began to slow...

    Liftgate close button

    I emailed my DES about something else so I mentioned this too. He says he went out on the lot and tried it and had the same results I did, so "it does not look like it's a fault of your vehicle". Of course I still think it's wrong, no matter how many vehicles he finds which do this - I'm...
