    Those with MCU1,AP2.5 and no FSD - what will you do ?

    I do use PIN-to-drive, so that might be why my car was bricked. And it happened in my garage which sucked for towing.

    No idea. Not the case with mine.

    Those with MCU1,AP2.5 and no FSD - what will you do ?

    MY2017 | MCU1 | HW2.5 | EAP My MCU already failed once bricking my car in the garage. Not sure if they put in a new or refurb'd MCU but I am guessing that extends my countdown timer to the next bricking. Glad it happened under warranty (the first time). Aside from that guillotine hanging over...

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    Nope. Still does it. Had a service person acknowledge it once but said none of the solutions worked.

    Likely MCU Failure (MCU1 eMMC)

    My 2017 MCU1 died at just under 2 years old and ~15k miles bricking the car in my garage.

    URGENT advice needed on range issues with new Model X.

    Also, I log data myself (into google sheets) so I track my efficiency over time. The presentation here is ugly but it gets the point across. Around 12,500mi (x-axis) I moved to a hilly place in the Fall and you can see my efficiency got really bad (relative to where it was before) and...

    URGENT advice needed on range issues with new Model X.

    I find this table helpful: Tesla Range Table - Teslike.com Generally, I have never achieved the range Tesla advertises in 75D Model S. I have the 20" wheels, and I am determined to one day figure out how to measure how much energy they "cost" because I suspect it's substantial. Disappointed...

    V10 on MCU1

    Exactly. It doesn't respect direction, right-of-way, line markings (like painted spaces), or really anything that isn't a hard obstacle. It just drives directly to where you are trying not to hit anything (and sometimes does so backwards). This is totally impractical in any situation except...

    MCU is dead, car is bricked, Tesla is being unforgivably terrible

    Final update: I got the car back yesterday so it was gone 11 days in total. The MCU was replaced and all seems back to normal. (However, I did lose a bunch of settings, including my "Trip A" which was the car's lifetime Wh/m history. Sad trombone.) Once the service center started responding and...

    My MCU was dead. As such, this was not a possibility.

    MCU is dead, car is bricked, Tesla is being unforgivably terrible

    I feel conflicted about sharing the SC. 1) Coincidence or not, shortly after this post they got their act together and I am getting daily updates and 2) even though I hated to call anyone out, a Company is one thing but a few (potentially overworked, under resourced) individuals is another. On...

    MCU is dead, car is bricked, Tesla is being unforgivably terrible

    Coincidence, or perhaps folks from Tesla monitor these forums, but minutes after I posted I got a text and then a phone call. Once I talked to a human they were great. But, talking to a human was *way* too hard. Clearly something is broken. Maybe they're short staffed. Maybe there is no process...

    MCU is dead, car is bricked, Tesla is being unforgivably terrible

    Car "bricked" in my garage. Had to be towed out. MCU would not come on. Car would not go into D R or N. No reset approach worked. Tesla had roadside service tow car. This is a Friday. Friday: no communication from Tesla, as emergency roadside assistance said I would get (confirming receipt at...

    Possible to disable rear trunk opening via key?

    Is it possible to disable the key fob button that opens the rear trunk / tailgate? I now have a metal structure above my car and am afraid if the trunk is accidentally opened (has happened a couple times over the years when the key is in my pocket) it'll open into the metal and shatter the glass.

    Miserable experience ordering winter wheel package

    I think you might have! :( I bought 20" TSportLine turbine replicas with Pirelli Sottozero 3's and am very pleased. Would highly recommend. No drama. Pictures vs. OEM 21s here: Summer vs. Winter Link to wheel/tire package: 20

    Days on Software Version (before next update)

    Mildly Interesting: As I patiently waited for v9 (got it today woohoo) I pulled the number of days of spent on each software version since I started collecting data in March. Results below. About an average of a month per version which a high of 52 days and a low of 16. (First version data is...

    Mid-October Cross County Drive - 21" summers or 20" winters?

    I am driving cross country in mid-October, Mid-Atlantic to Pacific Northwest. Tesla mapping sends me up past Chicago, into South Dakota, then through Montana and Idaho. Any insight on whether I should use my OEM 21" turbines or my winter set? One consideration would be weather, I welcome any...

    Early Access Program (overflow from 2018.39 4a3910f thread)

    If you are in Early Access and want to follow the rules but like data logging I just found a gist with code that logs a Tesla's data into a private Google Sheet (I guess you own the data, not a 3rd party, so it follows the rules): Link to gist. Functionality seems minimal compared to something...

    Anyone have an east coast -> pacific northwest iteneraty?

    I am considering doing a cross country trip this fall from the mid-atlantic region out to the pacific northwest. I looked at the route suggested by Tesla, but I am wondering whether anyone has recommendations for hotels (e.g., with destination chargers) or places not to miss along the way. Also...

    Looking for some wisdom for choosing 75D vs 100D

    Wat? The 100D 0.1s faster than the 75D - 4.1s vs 4.2s. Imperceptible. So absolutely not "substantially quicker." The 100D will charge faster because of the battery pack. This matters most when supercharging and is a nice benefit.

    Why I Won't Be Purchasing My 3rd Model S

    Worse. The exhaust notes in an M5 are fake, piped in through the audio system. As a former NA in-line 6 and then V8 M3 owner, this was the moment I mentally broke up with BMW. Why they thought it was OK to create a fake exhaust note for the cabin I have no idea, but says everything about...

    Have you installed this on a Model S? Was there enough depth to the carpet/map for the anchors?

    Mats. The velcro stinks. Is there a solution?

    I am nearing a year of ownership and my (driver) floor mat no longer sticks to the velcro sewn into the floor. Therefore, the mat tends to slide and bunch up around the pedals. No bueno. I have Weathertech in the trunk and frunk but don't like the aesthetic in the cabin. Anyone have a solution...

    Looking for some wisdom for choosing 75D vs 100D

    This is very true, though I think 200 is a bit low. Probably in the 210-215 range. Yes. In the bottom left chart you can see the times it charged up to 259 and near 259. But you can also see how the peaks are decreasing.

    Looking for some wisdom for choosing 75D vs 100D

    See below for data I've collected on my MS 75D (I started collecting at ~2700mi). This is what I have learned in 10 months of ownership. 1) You cannot count on 259 miles of range. If you look at the bottom right chart you can see my efficiency in Wh/mi. The rated range (259 miles) requires ~280...

    Data over a few thousand miles

    About once a month I charge to 100%. I thought charging to a lower max (e.g., 70%) was good for the battery in the long run. It that not correct?

    Data over a few thousand miles

    I wrote a Google Script to pull data from my MS (75D) every hour (using the API) and dump it into a Google Sheet. Of course that makes charting really simple. Finally got around to playing with the data and thought it was mildly interesting, enough so to share. Takeaways: max range does...

    Where can you report a glitch in EAP? / 1st Drive on Pickup AP 85% of the way Home

    Have some of this with the 2.5 hardware as well. It's scary. I've also noted that there is a spot on my local highway that runs directly next to a normal street and for some reason the speed limit data briefly flips to 25mph on the *highway" which seems to cause the car to suddenly want to...

    My Model 3 Got Wrecked Today :(

    In absence of OPs confirmation, it does look like the Camaro is pulled off ahead, to the right side sandwiched between two State Trooper SUVs. So, I am guessing they did catch up with the at fault driver for those wondering... OP, really glad you're OK regardless of circumstance.

    Musk Says Model 3 Brakes Need Work, Firmware Update Coming in a ‘Few Days’

    I have no idea whether it is typical for ABS systems to "learn" and adapt over time. I always assumed that ABS is static. If not, your explanation makes sense.

    Musk Says Model 3 Brakes Need Work, Firmware Update Coming in a ‘Few Days’

    The answer of "ABS calibration algorithm" is interesting. The *calibration* is the problem? I guess the logical conclusion is that there is a subset of cars whose calibration is flawed and needs to be reset/reinitiated. This could absolutely have to do with regen. In fact, it makes perfect sense.

    Musk Says Model 3 Brakes Need Work, Firmware Update Coming in a ‘Few Days’

    Still not sure I'd believe ABS OTA updates are a capability. Seems ... risky. But, I understand your point and recognize that it's very possible. Just to clarify my point - if ABS is tuned out of the box to work a certain way with regen (as it would have to as you point out with full/cold...
