    My AP1/TACC is not slowing before curves in road anymore. It starts slowing at the apex of the curve in the road (too late). Very scary. Coincidently with S/W update: My battery pack warmer error went away, but now I have random TPMS fault errors. Maybe its just old car quirks.

    Backing into charging spots

    Backing into ALL parking spots is proven safer (better visibility when pulling out). My company has required this as a safety standard for company cars. I try to avoid using the pull-in superchargers and save those for the occasional Tesla with a trailer or bike hitch. You know about the A/B...

    What is reasonable super charging speed degradation

    I have a Oct 2014 P85 RWD w/AP1 and starting to notice the supercharging is taking longer. Everyone asks me about total range degradation but it slower charging speed is bigger PITA. Maybe just recent colder temp related and my occasional batter heater failing warnings, but I thought I would...

    BMS_w035 alert popped yesterday and this morning

    I got this same message(s) yesterday too. Definitely coldest weather our 2014 P85 has seen in long time. Mine went away after 10min of driving and supercharged 45 min later no problem. Software (2021.44.6) glitch ??

    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    Sorry, dont know windshield cost. Service replaced it for free due to an accident during 12v battery replacement. VERY IMPRESSED with almost ever Tesla service visit -- as opposed to stealership service visits almost never impress.

    Cybertruck production likely delayed....Post your best guess of WHEN for the record!

    That might be an outdated mindset that works with frames or engine/transmission combos. With giga-pressing and exoskin folding already more efficient. The computers and motors are already crossing over from 3>>Y>>S>>CyberTruck. IF these are truly just computer-on-wheels, then the are all...

    How many will look into the F-150 Lightning?

    Common misconception due to marketing double speak: The F-series (including F150, F250, F350,SUPERDUTY...) is best selling "VEHICLE" (if you can call it ONE vehicle). --- I think if that's a thing, then all the VW/Audi A-series cars should be lumped together too. --- The F150 maybe the...

    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    One full day. Last week Tesla Sterling, VA upgraded my AP1 to MCU2 and replaced a windshield in one full day. The MCU2 upgrade includes new screens (both dash and map screens). New screens are noticeably higher resolution and contrast even to my old eyes. Service almost spilled over into...

    YES. Your charger: Gen 2 Mobile Connector Bundle - Gen1 chargers came with S&X until 2018 are up to 40amp and have interchangeable tips - Gen2 chargers come with 3&Y are up to 32 amp and have interchange able pig tails, thinner cords, - New "Corded Mobil Connector " looks to be 40amp, but...

    Found a roadster charger on ebay (mislabeled UMC Gen1)

    Tesla Gen 1 Mobile Connector 1P NA Charger 40A UMC Charging Kit PN: 1015786-99-B | eBay Not mine. I was looking for a new cord for my Tesla-S and found this 'odd' looking connector. Not sure if these are hard-to-find, but figured someone might want it. Cheers!

    FS Tesla UMC with 20 foot cable

    This looks like less powerful Gen2 (32a) charger at OG (40a) prices. Both types are in stock at Tesla.com and the Gen2s are only $275 brand new (plus ~$60 for the 14-50 adapter). Best offer $225 (incl shipping to 24121)

    Model S - HPWC (High Power Wall Connector)

    Does you S have a 2nd onboard charger? If not 40A is the max. Have you had and eMMC MCU1 problems? Mine would sometimes default down to 12A before it was replaced with the new 64G version Lastly, maybe it is just a bug in the current S/W that MCU1 Tesla dont negotiate with 60A HWPC.

    Software update 2020.48.26.x update, font size problems

    Did font change on MCU1/AP1 cars also? probably not many that can answer that.... Checking TeslaFi: Of the 1,600+ cars to receive Version 2020.48.26, only 23 are AP1 cars.
  27. morrisdl

    Is anyone impressed with the overly-hyped "holiday update"?

    There is a screen shot in the X forum: 2020.48.12.26 fonts are smaller? I also hope this does not impact AP1 cars

    Just received this warranty email

    There seems to be some flexibility on the 100K limit...my dead eMMC was just replaced at 113k miles for free. I was expecting to pay a fair $400 for the service, but they did it "good will / no charge" :-D

    Its not like you are hand-cuffed to a gas pump...that could be 340 very productive supercharging hours!

    Tesla Covering Some MCU1 Issues for Some Owners

    JUST got my 1st email notification last night (3am) about the eMMC warranty adjustment period. Still states "8 years/100k miles" but they already replaced mine for free at 113,000 miles last month. Tesla is not perfect and not all mistakes are nefarious. I am still REALLY enjoying 2014...

    Free supercharging

    Free super charging isnt all that valuable, but it is weirdly enticing to go on "free road trips". We have done 3 family road trips just because its "FREE". In the my past 50,000 miles...168 Charges At 105 Locations (total 5,607.00 kWh) only $184 worth of charging.

    Tesla Covering Some MCU1 Issues for Some Owners

    Tesla shocked me and replaced my eMMC under warranty for FREE @113k miles! Happy Thanksgiving :-D New MCU rolled me back to 2020.36.11 from 2020.40.0.4. The swap also added a couple bubbles at the top of my screen - no charge :-/

    16 17 or 18 FSD differences. Please help me understand.

    In version 10.2 "AP1" was renamed "Highway Autopilot" on the mcu software screen (same page as release notes). I support the name change and clarification as long as the dont disable my ability to use AP1 everywhere with lines.

    16 17 or 18 FSD differences. Please help me understand.

    Production year means nothing (no concept of model years). Tesla perpetually makes updates all the time. The various iterations on autopilot hardware are called AP1, AP2, AP2.5, AP3. Until recently not much was functionally different. more dealt on AP version: This website lets you...

    My MCU is 100% DEAD for 10 days and counting...frustrating, but not stranded. Wife still daily-drives it.

    MCU died, car now charging slow. Is this normal?

    Are you sure you can connect AND that the MCU is dead? Seems implausible. Do you happen to know what version were you on? There is different default/limp mode behaviors depending on the version. I sub to teslafi, so I could see mine was on 2020.40.0.4 when it died. Fulltime backup screen...

    NHTSA Investigates Failing MCUs

    Have to disagree: I am also 2014 w/110K and a dead MCU, but ~$400 seems like a reasonable repair price. Less than $2k for a new upgraded computer also seems fair. I think there were was definitely a programming design flaw (logging level) that abused the eMMc and also a little under spec'd...

    Made an appointment yesterday to get fixed...just missed the cut off at 109K miles :-( Mine is permanently displaying only the backup camera now and never goes to sleep. Consumes 4% battery /day Seem like most people get 100% black screen, anyone else seen backup cam?

    Life before your S

    Tesla replaced two ICE cars: Cayenne Turbo and Scion xD The Cayenne was a bit of a unicorn w/factory lockers, tree sliders, disconnecting sways. If I didnt have the Land Rover, I would have wheeled it.

    TeslaFi - Battery Degradation Reports (upload your data)

    It only matched me with 1 one other P85 with >100K miles. Im winning! ;-) Our annual mileage and and battery degradation are pretty liner (so far).n SO, In 10 years we would have 350K miles on the odo, and a usable range of only 100-140 miles.

    Renewing the debate on the best Fridge/Freezer for 6 seater MX

    CF3 looks sweet! My parents got the NEW cheaper version that: Dometic CC 40 - Electric Cooler Much lighter! Only Refrige - No freezing options. Maybe less efficient and not as durable, but way cheaper.

    "No Battery Performance" -Tesla.com

    Thanks kkillebrew and BPeter - both seem plausible explanations. Weird those are the only two options displayed, but maybe the website designers didn't bother to go back and add all the 2014 and older option codes.
