    Unable to drive - Authentication required

    I got this error after getting my car back from Tesla Service. They left my key in the glove compartment and I used my iPhone to unlock the car. So far, so good. But it was in this mode. I eventually found this thread and figured out how to set passive entry. My handles auto present again and I...

    Scrolling wheel on steering wheel easily breaks. Is the part available separately?

    I bought a new-design but broken unit off EBay for $25 to repair and install rather than doing the whole repair all in one sitting. The buttons are a new simpler design but the plastic axle for the scroll wheel is the same. So it will have a similar lifetime before failing.

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    I don't pay attention to max range that much, and I rarely charge to full to find out. I charge up to a range 220 rather than an amount.

    It was a total surprise to me. In fact, I googled the case to make sure it wasn't a scam somehow.

    Tesla did the retrofit. Do you know what they did?

    Scrolling wheel on steering wheel easily breaks. Is the part available separately?

    Do you know if the new one piece design will fit into a 2015 S which has the old two piece version? Doing a little research, they're selling broken one piece parts for $25 shipped on EBay which means the new part is probably about as robust as the old one. So I may buy the broken part and fix...

    Steering wheel buttons+scrollers not working

    The left volume control wheel on my 2015 S detached and sank in. I can still use it for on/off and I can use the Tesla app to control volume. As Miracle Max would say, mostly dead is still slightly alive. is that failure reparable or is the part only replaceable? the part (1013242-99-I) is $125...

    Door handle not presenting

    SF Bay Area mobile service replaced the driver's door presenting assembly with a Gen 3 module for $330 but that also included a Liftgate Drain Plugs Retrofit ($25). It's within the realm of quantum mechanical possibility that I could have bought the parts myself, maybe just the paddle gear, and...

    Tesla now repairing MCU1 with a new Tegra card for less than $500

    They ordered the eMMC card last Monday and the Tesla app said it had arrived. So it took a week which is fine since my service appointment isn't until this Thursday.

    Tesla now repairing MCU1 with a new Tegra card for less than $500

    Thanks. I didn't get any degraded warning message. It just went blank when I started the car except for the the rear view camera. So it sounds likely that the Tegra card will be available for my service appointment next week. Good. Right now I have a drivable car but no turn signals, no AP.

    Tesla now repairing MCU1 with a new Tegra card for less than $500

    I'm getting it from the fount of all wisdom like the stone tablets brought down from atop Mount Sinai which Mel Gibson himself translated from the original Aramaic. I got it from an old thread. The correct information is: But thanks for the heads up though. Two years is really not that long. I...

    Tesla now repairing MCU1 with a new Tegra card for less than $500

    Even though $1500 is more than free, I'm leaning strongly towards the MCU2 option. The reviews are very positive. Also it's a new screen + eMMC + 4 year warranty. So it resets the ticker on those clocks. But not a chance I'm paying $500 for FM. I mostly listen to podcasts + BBC4 these days. But...

    Tesla now repairing MCU1 with a new Tegra card for less than $500

    So I'd lose AM/FM with the MCU2 ... unless I purchase the Radio Upgrade for $500. I absolutely love the reason they give for this: Why is the Radio Upgrade not included in the purchase of the Infotainment Upgrade? Not all customers use their FM radio. For those that wish to upgrade just their...

    I've read through all 29 pages and gotten up to speed. Thank you, fellow owners. Infotainment failed on Aug 8. The screen shows the rear view camera but no guidance marks, turn signals don't work, no remote connection. AC is on. Car charges + runs. Scheduled service Aug 9. Parts ordered email...

    Ohmmu battery installation by mobile ranger

    I have a 2015 and not a 2020. You get a warning on the instrument panel to replace soon. That's if it's a normal wear failure. If you get a catastrophic failure (bad battery), well your car just doesn't start. I had that on my Nissan Leaf and the AAA guy literally jump started it. He said it was...

    Ohmmu battery installation by mobile ranger

    So the OhmMu 12v was $399 delivered. I had it installed this morning at Luscious Garage in SF for $91 for a total of $490. Installation took an hour and I grabbed a latte across the street since I couldn't wait at Luscious for now due to Covid restrictions. Nice people. FWIW, I got my 12v...

    Ohmmu battery installation by mobile ranger

    I understand your short answer. But I did do a search and yours is the first post I've seen which calls Ohmmu snake oil. By comparison, I've seen several posts saying that even getting a Tesla compatible 12v from Tesla was an ordeal, that the factory battery was often not available. The battery...

    tires at costco

    Installation at Richmond CostCo was fine given the quarantine situation. It took around 2 hours, start to finish, and there isn't really any place to comfortably wait. In summary, I'd recommend that if you do buy tires at CostCo that you figure out what you want and order them online. It took 10...

    Air suspension recalibration

    Thanks. That got me to looking and I found this thread. How I fixed my air suspension leak for $1.00 So there is a "air suspension warning light" which hasn't come on. If there was a leak and the compressor was running a lot, it would have come on. No, I probably won't tick that box when I...

    Air suspension recalibration

    My year 4 maintenance is coming up. That $40 is certainly different from the $287.50 Air Suspension Check. I don't think I have any Smart Air problems and I'd rather not pay $287.50. If Air Suspension Recalibration is on the a la carte menu, I think I'll go for that. Any idea how I'd determine...

    tires at costco

    I suppose I could order tires from CostCo or Tire Rack (also $250 for the MXM4) and then have the mobile ranger mount them. If I recall correctly, Tesla charges $120 for installation. Is that correct? CostCo is $80 for installation and $19 for parts + disposal. This difference is in the noise...

    tires at costco

    Thanks. I checked and yes, their price was $252.00 to CostCo's $250.99. Moreover they had them in stock in Walnut Creek. Maybe next time.

    tires at costco

    I went to the Richmond CA CostCo to order a new set of MXM4s for my S. I didn't have an appointment and so I waited for quite awhile. But eventually I was helped. I knew exactly what I wanted. I wanted the same thing. MXM4s. I did NOT want Pilot Sports or anything else. I wanted MXM4s. It took...

    “Cruise Not Available”

    I had this last night but it resolved itself after about 10-15 minutes. It was at night, doing 65 on the San Mateo Bridge and nothing really interesting happened. I had just SC'd maybe an hour before. I did nothing to resolve it. I didn't power down. I didn't reboot. I didn't pull over and...

    Great September Delivery Push

    Yes, but the Carmax quote is only good for a week. From what I've read, Tesla isn't being competitive these days and doesn't match quotes. So I really want that week to include delivery. I'd rather trade it in but I'll get matching offers from Carmax and Carvana. I may list privately as well.

    Model 3 Orders for existing owners

    I ordered a Performance 3 on August 29 and I just got an email scheduling delivery (for which I'm not ready) for tomorrow. However, I'm in the SF Bay Area and I can take delivery at Fremont before the end of the month/quarter. I'm sure that mattered on scheduling.

    Great September Delivery Push

    I have a Performance 3 on order. My order page doesn't have a VIN and says "Estimated delivery by Oct.'18". I got a text today from someone (not my OA and not my DA) saying my P3 was ready for pickup tomorrow in Fremont. Tomorrow. I have no VIN and I was/am expecting about a week to deal with...

    Referrals on Model 3 don't exist !!

    Ok, I think the difference here is that I'm still at the order stage with delivery around Oct 1. So I see View Build Details see instead of View Vehicle Details. FWIW, my build details page *doesn't* tell me free or pay supercharging.
  37. E

    Referrals on Model 3 don't exist !!

    Where is the My Tesla page? I have an S and a 3 Performance on order. The S has free supercharging but I don't see anything on my tesla.com page for it. And my 3 Performance will have free supercharging and I don't see anything for it either.

    Referrals on Model 3 don't exist !!

    I used my own referral code to order the P3D. You can do that? Really? Well, I thought I was done with this today but I'm all over that if I can still do it. I just sent a note to my OA. Yes, it shouldn't be this hard.

    Referrals on Model 3 don't exist !!

    Ok, I just dropped by the Fremont Sales Center and straightened my Performance 3 order out. You can still get free supercharging for Performance 3 orders until tomorrow night. You qualify for free supercharging but you still need to get a referral code (which should not be hard to come by) and...

    Referrals on Model 3 don't exist !!

    I'm getting a Performance 3 with the expectation of free supercharging and a referral for a free charger which would get kicked back to me. I'm confused about how to do this and I've gotten confused texts from my OA. So I'm driving down to Fremont today and talking with them in person.

    I had just switched my car from blue to silver and I was a little worried since Tesla has also just ended silver. But I'm less worried now that silver shows up on my order page.

    Not a Raiders fan (at all) but the aeros look best with silver. It's what I'm ordering.

    Destination + Documentation Fee part of Total Vehicle Price

    Yeah, I worked it out that if Tesla does the delivery then it is in fact taxable. Which begs the question for even having the destination + documentation fee breakout but regardless that doesn't change the answer. Yeah, in CA, it's taxable. https://www.cdtfa.ca.gov/formspubs/pub100/#applying

    Model 3 Delivery Experience in Fremont

    Yep, and according to the Taxes and Fees section on my order, Tesla is mistakenly charging CA sales tax on those Dest+Doc fees. That's gonna get fixed between now and delivery. It pencils out to $111.

    Model 3 Delivery Experience in Fremont

    I asked both at the event and to my OA if they'd waive the $1500 for white interior I don't want. Tesla won't. So regular October delivery it is.
  49. E

    Model 3 Delivery Experience in Fremont

    There were *several* P3D+s with white interiors, like 5. Even if you don't go do and drop coin today, if you talk to your OA they'd hook you up with that car in Q3.

However, my OA hadn't been returning emails at all. So the kind Tesla folks were able to change from blue to silver with no...
