    Powerwall System Error

    I had my powerwall installed yesterday and today I followed the instructions to log into the TEG on the gateway to configure it to my home WiFi. After doing so I hit start system and I get the error "Unable to start syetem: sitemaster needs a default real mode."

    Tesla Support Fail

    Karaoke mode has been discussed before. Just google 'Tesla Karaoke Mode' and there will be several results. Here's an example of one: Elon Musk says Tesla will add 'car karaoke' mode in a software update - Roadshow

    Should my car be jailed for DUI? :-D

    Depends on the car ahead of you based on my experience. If the car is centered you don't get the ping ponging, but if they are close to the side the car will try to match the car ahead in slower speeds. Once the speed picks back up the car will center itself in the lane again.

    Steering wheel moved!

    It's always done it for me. I got mine at the Sept 30, 2016.

    Old maps, new symbols

    I don't think so.... Correct me if I'm mistaken, but I thought the windows were for others to look in to make sure that I was still alive?

    Old maps, new symbols

    Oh weird... I usually get that when I go underground for more than half a mile. So I always assumed that it was telling me that I'm driving on a road that is under the surface in case I couldn't tell visually by looking out the windshield.

    Ideal Aftermarket Audio System for Model S

    Just the 12v. The rest of the cables ran up the driver's side.

    Ideal Aftermarket Audio System for Model S

    Just finished my install yesterday. Took about 10 hours with help. The door speakers make a huge difference and could probably be done in about 2 hours. The sub took a little bit longer since I had no idea what I was doing. I ended up taking the 12v from the fuse box under the passenger's side...

    Ideal Aftermarket Audio System for Model S

    Adding in my 2 cents. I did place an order about 2 weeks ago and it should be arriving this upcoming Thursday (Website says Ships in 1-2 weeks) so at least that much is true in my case. When I called the number on the website to ask a question Brody picked up in a very reasonable time and was...

    Does it come from the steering wheel only when you have the heated steering wheel option on?

    All the Things that Suck About AutoPilot

    There are a couple.... like the times when AP doesn't like the driver behind you and AP decides to brake check them (phantom breaking) or how about when AP is mad at you and tries you kill you via making a drastic swerve (happens sometimes when a car is too far over the lane line)?

    Long Commutes: Has autopilot helped?

    My commute is 27 miles each way (approximately 40-80 minutes depending on if it is morning/afternoon/weather) and autopilot is a game changer. AP1 Handles stop and go traffic like a champ. Basically I get on the free way, move over to the leftmost lane, turn on autopilot, let it take over for...

    Financially Irresponsible or Worth It?

    Insurance might be a bit higher than you think. My ELR was ~$400/6 months and my model S 75D ~$1,200/6 months with the same coverage. Depending on how much you drive tires will need to be replaced every 20-25k miles on 19" rims.

    I got mine within 5 business days, but with all these new orders Norm might need a little bit longer. It'll be well worth the wait though!

    Got one last weekend. Works well! Better than the one being sold on Amazon.

    Xpel Ultimate vs Hail

    So I have read what I could in this forum regarding hail and Tesla's (S and X) aluminum body. I also tried looking up information on if Xpel Ultimate could protect a car from hail damage. Per Xpel's demonstration video the panel (probably not aluminum) looks fine after being hit with some...

    Volt to Tesla Experience

    I went from a 2013 Volt to a 2014 ELR and I currently own both the ELR and a 2016 MS. For driving it pretty much as everyone else has said prior to this post so I won't elaborate. The biggest thing I missed going from the Volt to the ELR was the hatchback and seating space. I really like the...

    Fire at Gruber?

    I'm pretty sure at this point building a time machine would probably be easier than trying to rebuild.

    Free air at gas station.

    This is the one I also bought. It works well even when using the 12V cig socket and I just keep it in my trunk.

    Single wipe switches on the headlights

    Totally happened to me last week. The driver in front of me was happy to show me his rage thinking that I was flashing at him to speed up or something (was on AP and wanted to clear the windshield).

    Folding Side Mirrors When AutoParking or Summoning

    Mine folds each time I summon. I hit the button in between the two buttons that select which mirror to control so that whenever the car locks the mirror folds. So when I summon the car automatically locks and the mirrors fold.

    Firmware 8.1 - Autopilot HW1

    I'm on 17.14.23 and I haven't gotten a take over notice since updating about 3 days ago. If you're possibly referring to the 'hold steering wheel' I usually get it every 7-10 minutes driving on a freeway with no traffic lights.

    Worlds most ironic Tesla sales technique!

    My lawn mower is now also electric so I don't need gas for that, but I did have to make a stop, earlier this year, to get gas for my snow blower :(

    Frunk Security Issue - can be opened without a key - Feature not a bug

    Good point. You could never build enough pressure in the brake line to start the car :)

    Ap1 seems better on 17.4.14

    It's something that happens on and off for me (also ap1). Some days the car will perform better than others. I have noticed, as have others, that the following distance is now a little bit further on setting 1. I have also noticed that the car will 'freak out' more often now and hit the brakes...

    Frunk Security Issue - can be opened without a key - Feature not a bug

    When I pick up fast food I put it in there on the drive home :) ;) To the vandal comment haha. It was mostly the comment 'Horrible design, bad security flaw' that I questioned. It's there so that emergency workers can safely disconnect power. There are probably other methods to make some...

    Frunk Security Issue - can be opened without a key - Feature not a bug

    Yes, that is a valid point and probably was the original intent of the post. Also cutting the wire would probably lead to an expensive repair, but I just thought of another thing that can be done easily and be even more dangerous. Cutting the break line. At least with the orange wire cut you...

    Frunk Security Issue - can be opened without a key - Feature not a bug

    People can also vandalize a car by slashing tires and smashing windows both of which would require arguably less effort.

    WANTED: Engine Noise Simulator

    There are 3rd party apps for that. One such app is XLR8. When I was driving my Pruis a few years back I played around with this app haha. It's available both in the Google Play store and in the Apple App Store.

    For me it's been that way since getting the car at ver 8 in OCT '16.

    Away For A Week

    I would say to get the battery to around a 90% charge so that it'll have power to keep the battery warm if it gets cold. At the same time parking in a garage or somewhere to keep the temperature consistently warmer would probably help. You could also add a battery tender to the 12V battery if...

    Away For A Week

    I was away for a month. During that time I left it plugged in and set it for a 60% max charge and the day before I returned I set it to 90% via the app while I was at the airport.
  45. MoonChou


    I've had it a little over a month now and it's used 67.05 kb on mobile and 10 MB on Wifi. So basically nothing. The battery consumption is minimal on my nexus 6P.

    ICE mechanics HATE Tesla!

    Hahaa the guys at my shop were worried about range so they were thinking about ways to extend the range with extra batteries. I tried explaining to them that it wouldn't work with conventional add ons. Well, it's true. It happened 3 weeks ago this year (Took delivery 4 weeks ago). I can post...
