    Tesla App Touch ID?

    Can someone that uses the Touch ID in the app explain how it works? My thought is that when you try to unlock your car you will get a message to touch your finger. Is this correct? If so, I can see this as added security to prevent someone from taking or finding your phone and being able to...

    Auto Park and 40.2.1

    I have noticed that after 40.2.1 I have begun to see more of the P for Auto Park and not having to be as close to the cars as before. I have not had a chance to use it due to busy parking lots. I found a chance to try it this morning in my gym parking lot. It did the perpendicular parking...

    Enhanced AutoPilot changed to AutoPilot

    I went to my Tesla Account to download the new Owner’s Manual. I noticed that under my Vehicle Details that my Enhanced AutoPilot has been changed to AutoPilot. Anyone else? It still says Enhanced AutoPilot on my MVPA and I would think that is what counts for insurance or resale purposes.

    First car inspection

    I took my car for it’s first inspection at my neighborhood Valvoline Oil Change location. I was immediately surrounded by 4 young gearheads with rapid-fire questions. They seemed to know a lot about the things they were most interested in. How fast have you driven this car? 90 How fast will...

    Iihs - Public Doesn’t Understand Tesla Safety System

    Apologies if this has been posted before, I searched but could not find anything. I read this article in my local newspaper. It lists Tribune News Service as the source.

    Browser Time Setting

    I noticed for the first time today, when I was looking with the browser on ESPN for bowl games, that the time is PT and I am on the East Coast. Is there a way to change the time? I feel like the answer is no, since Tesla is in CA, but cannot hurt to ask.

    Locking Phone in Car - Or Not

    I have read multiple posts about phones being locked in cars. Tonight I left my phone on the charger to go to dinner and turned off the Tesla app. I was expecting the car to lock when I walked away, like I have read in other posts. I walked away and waited but it did not lock. I had to go...

    TACC Distance Following - Start/Stop

    I was in a 1 mile line this weekend to enter a Christmas Light show at a popular garden. It was stop and go the entire distance, with the typical people trying to go as far as they could in the left lane and then trying to dive in the right lane at the last minute. TACC set to 1 kept right up...

    EAP Terminology

    Is it just me or does it bother anyone else that so many people use the term EAP so loosely? They say they were using EAP when this or that happened. What part(s) of EAP were you using? EAP covers several subsystems: - TACC - AutoSteer - Auto Lane Change - Navigation on AutoPilot - AutoPark -...

    AutoSteer limited to 50 mph

    i was driving on a US highway within the city that is 4 lanes with a 50 mph SL. I had the TACC speed limit set at 55 when I engaged AutoSteer. The car immediately slowed down to 50 and I received an “AutoSteer limited to 50 mph message”. I looked around and realized there was no median, just...

    AutoPark - Car and Concrete Curb

    I have used AutoPark one time before to perpendicular park between two cars and it worked perfectly. Today at the gym I was going to back in between a car and a concrete divider curb. When I put it in reverse I noticed the AutoPark symbol and was surprised that this was not between two cars...

    12V Fuses?

    Does anyone know where the 12V fuse box is located? I have looked in all of the normal places without removing any fastened covers. When I search the Model 3 Parts Catalog for fuses only a fuse in the HV Battery Assembly and a fuse in the Penthouse are listed.

    V9 AutoPark

    I have had my car for just over a month now. Until this morning I have not really thought about AutoPark since I normally park front end first. The gym parking lot was unusually crowded this morning and as I was driving past a row of cars and an empty slot, the gray P appeared. It took me a...

    Cabin Air Filter Question

    Where is the cabin air filter on the Model 3? It is typically behind the glovebox, but with the glovebox electrically activated I do not see a way to drop it. The new parts diagram in the Parts Catalog seems to imply that there are two filters?

    LR Battery - Usable Capacity Rating and Rated Wh/mile

    I have read a lot of different opinions on the usable capacity of the LR battery and the Wh/mile rating. The EPA rating for range miles is 310 and 26 kWh/100 mile, or 260 Wh/mile. The EPA rating suggests 80.6 kWH usable battery capacity. I have seen posts that say the rated Wh/mile is as low...

    License Plate Question

    How does Tesla handle license plates? I know at dealerships they install a 30-day tag and you get the real plate in about two weeks. I have a custom plate that I would like to transfer. I have only dealt with emails with Las Vegas so far and he is setting up home delivery.

    Home Charging Rate - Fast or Slow

    I understand that on trips you want the fastest charging rates possible. How about at home, is slower better than faster if you can get the needed charge during Off-peak hours? The UMC is limited to 32A but you can always lower the current limit: @32A ~ 30 mph, @20A ~ 20 mph and @10A ~ 10 mph...
