    2015 Model S Base Audio Package No Sound

    So today Tesla replaced the MCU1 with the MCU2 upgrade and... still no sound from my door or rear speakers. The tech was completely dumbfounded. They gave me a loaner to take home while they charge me $160/hour to continue to diagnose the issue. Based on the wiring diagrams I studied the...

    2015 Model S Base Audio Package No Sound

    The Tesla service center did the eMMC recall yesterday and attempted to diagnose the speaker issue. Their findings was the built in amplifier in the MCU is faulty and can't be replaced. They recommended doing the MCU2 upgrade for $1500 which I agreed to as I've been wanting to do that upgrade...

    2015 Model S Base Audio Package No Sound

    I have a 2015 RWD Model S with the MCU1 and with the base audio package. Last week all but the center speaker has stopped working. The voice commands still work but there is nothing from the door speakers or rear speakers. I did a lot of research on this issue and have tried just about...

    Slacker slacking off

    Actually.. I looked closer and the Slacker account is listed as "Plus". That's one tier below Premium. Plus doesn't allow streaming from the car. So the issue is indeed the accounts were downgraded. See attached screenshot.

    Slacker slacking off

    Yes I've been having the issue for about a week exactly has described. I called Tesla and they said they have been getting lots of similar reports and it's because the Slacker accounts were downgraded to Basic. So I logged into the Slacker account from a web browser with the Tesla credentials...

    Lexani LX-Twenty Budget Amazon Tires Review

    Just replaced the tires on my 2015 Model S with these super cheap Lexani tires. I had never heard of Lexani and couldn't find much information on them but decided to take the plunge anyway. I ordered them from Amazon with free prime shipping and one of their options was to ship to a Sears for...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Sure, here is the work order for the MCU2 they "accidentally" placed in my MCU1 car. It worked great except the VIN wouldn't come up and it showed the wrong car on the splash screen.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    So the MCU in my AP1 2015 Model S was replaced a few weeks ago with an MCU2. Accidentally. For one day. Yep, my MCU was scheduled to be replaced under warranty and the mobile ranger came out and installed the MCU2 not realizing it was an MCU1 car. And it worked. Sorta. Everything in the car...

    2015 Tesla Accelerated into a wall

    A few weeks ago I floored my 2015 Model S to merge into traffic and to my surprise it just kept accelerating after I let my foot up off the accelerator. I smashed the brakes and it immediately cut the power and slowed but as soon as I let off the brakes it launched forward again. Somehow I knew...

    Slacker Radio Tip for New Owners!

    It's interesting Tesla calls it "abuse" when they never said we couldn't log in on other devices. Why else would we be asking for the credentials? I guess I'm one of the abusers as I use it on my laptop and iPhone. My girlfriend hates it though and will just exit out and go to youtube to play...

    Choosing an insurance company w/a Tesla?

    I started with Progressive at about $750 paid in full for six months of full coverage. After six months they wanted to raise the rate to about $900 for no reason. So I found a start up called Root that offered the same coverage at $720. The catch is they track your driving for a few weeks to see...

    Used inventory quite low according to ev-cpo

    Looks like the prices are higher than when I purchased six months ago. I paid $41,800 for a 2015 with AP1. Now the average for the same car is $46,000. Great news!

    EVannex Tesla Model S Center Console Piano Black

    My CPO 2015 Model S came with the EVannex center console but I personally prefer the yacht floor without the console. It's piano black and black leather. I will post pictures later today. Located in the Baton Rouge/New Orleans area. Console fits tight in my 85 with no wiggle. Used but good...

    The case of the missing lug nuts.

    Same thing happened to me after I picked up my CPO from Fremont. Customer support advised I just show up at the nearest service center which happened to be a Tesla approved body shop and not a real service center. I showed up and in a few minutes they replaced the lug nuts and torqued the...

    CPO financing questions

    I went with Digital Credit Union. They just pulled my credit (perfect credit in the 720s) and instant approved me up to $50k with no proof of income. I have had several car loans before but this was by far my biggest. They offered 3.75% for 65 months. Great to deal with. They overnighted a check...

    Considering buying a CPO and driving it home 800 miles

    Drove mine 2000+ miles from Fremont to New Orleans. Best road trip of my life. Ended up making new friends which lead to even greater adventure to Europe this New Years.

    Been denied refund on CPO deposit three times

    I remember when I bought my CPO last month (which was a great experience and I'm very happy, by the way) I read in the contract that the $2500 payment was a service fee for prepping the car for delivery. According to the contract, if you back out of the deal they still incurred a cost of $2500...

    Need Solid Tips on Removing CA HOV Stickers

    I just took the stickers off my CPO S85. There were 3 stickers and it took 30-45 minutes per sticker. I got a scraper with a plastic tip, a hair dryer, and goo gone. By heating the sticker up and slowly peeling it away with the scraper I was able to get everything but the "void" residue off in...

    Tesla MVPA showing negative down payment?

    They did a similar thing to me. On my end, I had a preapproval from my credit union up to $50,000 but the car was $38,500 after my $2500 credit card downpayment. Tesla saw the preapproval blank check that said "up to $50,000" and went ahead and put in a purchase price of $50,000 and a...

    Model S depreciation

    I looked at photos from at least a dozen CPO cars before buying mine. They do not seem to take damage into account when pricing. Some of the cheapest ones were pristine and some of the expensive ones had damage. Sometimes damage was moderate body damage (like it backed into a pole), sometimes it...

    Picking up this CPO S85 tomorrow.. Any issues you see?

    One thing, they couldn't put a temp tag on the back. They put a sticker on the front windshield that said it was temporarily registered. So to avoid being pulled over every day I just copied the exact info from the sticker and printed it onto a piece a paper and stuck it in the license plate...

    Picking up this CPO S85 tomorrow.. Any issues you see?

    It has the tech package, autopilot, free supercharging.. that's about it I think. No sunroof. I'm on day four of my road trip. So far it's taken me from San Francisco to Vegas to The Grand Canyon and now on my way to Dallas. Slept in it one night and it was comfortable enough for one guy. Loving it.

    Picking up this CPO S85 tomorrow.. Any issues you see?

    Picked up the car yesterday. It's perfect. They cleaned up the curb rash on the wheels and filled in the small nicks. It even came with the center console and all weather matts. Currently driving it back home cross country and having a great time.

    Picking up this CPO S85 tomorrow.. Any issues you see?

    Do you mean the damage pointed out in image 18? It's a very odd angle/perspective and I can't really tell how serious the bump is they are pointing out. The camera appears low under the car but the wheel looks at an odd angle. I'll definitely be taking a look at it closer when I see it tomorrow...

    Picking up this CPO S85 tomorrow.. Any issues you see?

    Thanks! I was wondering if I would be able to use any HOV lanes in California while driving home. Good to know I can jump in them if I want!

    Picking up this CPO S85 tomorrow.. Any issues you see?

    Exactly 7 days ago I placed the $2500 deposit on this 2015 S85 with Autopilot, tech package, and the 4 year warranty for $41,800. Excited to be a part of the club finally! My experience with Tesla has been very positive so far. They've been quick to respond to emails, have issued several MVPAs...
