    Model 3 12v battery dead

    This morning, the 12v was completely dead because the door wouldn't even open. But, I managed to jump start it :) Does a 9v battery not open the frunk anymore? I heard a weak servo noise when connecting to battery terminals, but it sounded like it was too weak to pop the frunk. I had to use the...

    Model 3 12v battery dead

    I got zero warnings, have about 25k miles. My car was manufacture in October 2018, so, almost three years. Guess I have to make it a 2 year maintenance habit, then. I am going to try jump it, let it stay awake tonight with summon standby or sentry, and drive to service center tomorrow to...

    Model 3 12v battery dead

    I see. For roadside I can call the roadside number, but what about how to reach mobile service? I had to Uber to work today, so I'll probably have to take care of it tomorrow. Is this better for mobile service?

    Model 3 12v battery dead

    Hey everyone, this morning when I got into my car, the display would not turn on, the front headlights were weak and blinky, and when I depress the pedal, it makes this really weak motor noise. Also the button to unlock the car makes a really weak sound, and rolling down the windows is very slow...

    Supercharger - Westminster, CA (LIVE 22 Dec 2018, 24 Urban stalls)

    Anyone visit this supercharger frequently? Large chunk of stalls either have trouble sustaining charging rate (starts at 60 kW then drops to 0 and stuck < 5 kW or fluctuates up/down) or today it was stuck at 40 kW. I don't think it's just me. See some other cars charge then leave a few min...

    Sorry to hear this. Did you ever find a fix? I still haven't updated from 2020.20 and no update feature is going to be worth losing this! :D

    He tried to use cURL to access my page and could not, even though I could load it in a browser. I uploaded to a different hoster and it worked :) I am trying to see if I can make my own icecast stream(s) to shuffle my own playlists, but I'm not a pro with Linux but I always run into weird errors...

    Vendor Scan My Tesla, a CANBUS reader for Android

    Hi guys, I took a recording from the All tab after clicking the red button, then let it record, finished the drive, left the car. Then at my computer, I uploaded the csv file, and tried to use CANBUSAnalyzer and SavvyCAN but neither are able to load anything. What steps do you usually take to...

    Vendor Scan My Tesla, a CANBUS reader for Android

    Thanks. I hope there is an automated data collection in the future once the app detects the BT device is connected, or some cloud API trigger to start recording.

    Vendor Scan My Tesla, a CANBUS reader for Android

    No problem. Can this app start recording everything every x-seconds the moment it turns on to when it turns off? It is not clear how it ends up saving data. I found a few files in the scan my tesla folder but they were of only from one tab. Thanks.

    DI.FM premium channels streaming with the native music player

    I tried a few times-loaded the station (the PHP page) on the app, and got the favorites station to show up on TuneIn in Tesla, but if I click it I get an error: "Unable to reach TuneIn, try again". Did you ever run into this? So when I added custom URL on the phone, and then add it to...

    How did you fix the error? I have the same problem. Is a premium TuneIn account required? Thanks, I'm on the same software, let me see what above poster did to fix it before I bug you about it.

    DI.FM premium channels streaming with the native music player

    Thanks! Do you know if I need the latest 2020.24.6.1 for this to work? Mine loads TuneIn favorites (stations that are part of TuneIn) but none of the custom URL favorites show up. I can access the PHP from a desktop browser fine.

    Anyone still rocking a Pi Zero W smart drive for TeslaCam on Sentry Mode?

    Have you guys tried something like this: Controlled shutdown on power loss - Raspberry Pi Forums (capacitors to bridge that short transition period), or Bolt Portable Charger ? I set up a relay-type in my car (to power a dashcam; charges battery and runs dashcam off car power while driving, but...

    2020.16.2.1 killed my LTE connection

    What are your car specs (year, HW2.5/3, ?FSD)? Do we know if certain car configurations are affected? I have the update pending, but hesitant to install. If it is a known issue that affects specific configurations, I would like to assume they would pull the update on those cars?

    EAP to FSD - bite the bullet now or risk it?

    I'm with you guys. In a certain other place we'd all be downvoted to oblivion XD I've only found it useful on non-busy highways, otherwise it brakes too often/hard to slow down, among other issues, and yes, I bought the car to be able to drive it!

    Laptop/Food Tray for Model 3

    Haha, imagine enabling autopilot on a straight road, then proceed to set up the tray with burger and open drink. Then a sharp curve comes up, you see the tray tilting, instinctively grab the steering wheel and turn it in opposite direction to stop the drink from spilling, and you don't really...

    EAP to FSD - bite the bullet now or risk it?

    Buy the subscription when it comes out, maybe get a free upgrade to HW3 computer, cancel subscription after a month, enjoy the better visualizations, maybe they'll add red-light/stop-sign warning alerts as a safety feature. And still enjoy the decent autopilot on highways with EAP.

    How to enable car autolocking after walking away from the car for a period of time?

    1. use the API to monitor if driver is present or not. once driver is not present for x seconds, if car is unlocked, then lock it. 2. use Tasker on Android, once BT connection is lost with the car for x seconds, if the car is unlocked, then lock it.

    Supercharger - Buena Park, CA - Beach Boulevard (LIVE 17 Jun 2020, 24 urban stalls)

    Scouting report. Main bank of 22 chargers still walled off with cones. The two across the stairs tried to charge but had no power. Pretty busy this afternoon, going to anticipate some angry ICEing when it opens.

    Supercharger - Anaheim, CA - East Katella Ave (LIVE 23 Dec 2019, 16 V3 stalls)

    A recent charge I did was also in the 80s kW, starting from approx 30%, but the battery pack was cold from overnight and only had preconditioning for about 4 miles of street driving, so it was expected. Similar thing happened with Groveland charger without adequate preconditioning for the...

    Supercharger - Buena Park, CA - Beach Boulevard (LIVE 17 Jun 2020, 24 urban stalls)

    Nice addition to the area. I wonder how traffic will cope, though, when having to stop and pull back into the stalls, especially since some impatient drivers love tailgating in the parking structures.

    Self parking in a very tight garage - doable?

    You will be fine. I have maybe three inches clearance at the door edge on each side with mirrors unfolded, but inside the garage I am able to open the front driver door one stop without it hitting the wall. Just take your time and park slowly and carefully, have someone sit on the passenger side...

    Supercharger - Huntington Beach (likely cancelled)

    Accessing vehicle data (odometer etc.) over the internet w/ API ?

    Search for tesla data logger and pay for a service, use an app on your phone to log data through the API, learn and do it yourself via the API Tesla API, or run one of several scripts on Github.

    Looking for real world - someone must have made this drive...

    Probably stop at Harris Ranch or Kettleman City depending how low you want to let car run, then do Tejon Ranch so you get enough or more to get to hotel. Once you enter the LA/OC area, the supercharger are busy all the time. ABRP is reasonably accurate. I don't like sitting around for 40 minutes...

    Plan to Fix Decrease in "Est. Range at 100%" Problem

    My battery is doing the same thing, too. Currently about 9000 miles. I have to SC to 90% about once a week at 72 kW chargers because no place else to charge. Every now and then if schedule permits, I do some partial level 2 charging. But I don't go out of the way just to charge on level 2. I...

    Paranoid in LA

    Bro, before I had phone key set up, I would use the key card to unlock, and then I'd always lock the car with the screen button. And then I locked myself out in Joshua Tree. I left my key car inside because needed to hit the RFID each time to drive. I left my cell phone in car because it was...

    Tips on removing severe water spotting/etching

    Side note, man I am never hiring a mobile guy.

    Tips on removing severe water spotting/etching

    I think it is worsened by sunlight. My previous car parked at work and home in garage so it did not get as dusty nor did rain water get a chance to dry in the sun. Currently, with no covered parking at work, because so close to the freeway or something, one day under the sun already there is so...

    Tips on removing severe water spotting/etching

    Oh yea that's right it breaks down to a polish. This might be easiest after vinegar. I don't want to buy too much stuff, because it'll end up costing more than having someone do paint correction on the entire car when I realize I can't get the job done safely XD

I would have used Ultimate Polish and if that doesn't work I would need someone to do it for me because I've never dealt with compounding before. I don't have any DA...

    Unable to use 12V Tesla Tire Repair compressor with USB connected TapTes Dual Qi wireless charger

    The fuse on the 12V plug should reset on its own after 1-2 hours if you leave it alone. Or I've heard to disconnect 12V battery for a few seconds.

    Tips on removing severe water spotting/etching

    Neglected to take care of the car. Dusty with some rain, water accumulates on the rear of the car, lots of sunshine and I guess this is the result. What do you think I should try? I might have to try to do this all by hand. It was present in the past, tried to claybar but that did not do the...

    Still confused how to keep the car locked properly

    I was doing some car stuff in the garage. In this garage, I pull forward into it. I closed the door, walked to the front of the car, the car locked doors (lights and audio confirmation). I placed the phone on a shelf that is in front of the car (so car, about 18 inch gap, then shelf). I walked...

    Supercharger - Downey CA - Stonewood Street (LIVE 28 Jun 2018, 12 Urban stalls)

    Agree, it's a high traffic outer perimeter road. It's crazy what one year makes. One year ago, I could stop by here at 4pm on a weekday and only 20% of the stalls would be occupied. Now, it's close to full capacity almost at all times. I was there a week ago with same situation (a good 33%...
