    Gen 2 Wall Charger Now Only Goes to 16 Amps

    That's really good info to have. Thanks for the follow up. It figures that's what it is. Hopefully they push out an update soon.

    Gen 2 Wall Charger Now Only Goes to 16 Amps

    Not that I know of. The charger has worked flawlessly for the last year until the last week or so.

    Gen 2 Wall Charger Now Only Goes to 16 Amps

    Update from me - mine still doesn't work. Charging now at 16 amps again. I hate to blame it on my wife, but she was the one who told me it was working fine this afternoon. I'll chalk it up to her misreading things on the display.

    Gen 2 Wall Charger Now Only Goes to 16 Amps

    I never tried it on a neighbors - that may have been someone else in the thread. I went to a destination charger, which had the same type of HPWC and it worked fine with no problems. I'm stumped, but glad it's working. We'll see if it stays that way.

    Gen 2 Wall Charger Now Only Goes to 16 Amps

    Things make even less sense today - plugged it in and everything is working like normal. Strangest thing I've seen. We didn't do anything differently. Wonder if it was just a temporary glitch or if this is just a temporary fix. Glad it appears to be working as designed now.

    Gen 2 Wall Charger Now Only Goes to 16 Amps

    Yeah, very strange. In my instance, the issue doesn't seem to be tied to any event - didn't happen after installing an update, I didn't have any work on any of the electrical systems in my house. What's really strange is the distination charger I went to (not sure if it's a Gen 1 or Gen 2...

    Gen 2 Wall Charger Now Only Goes to 16 Amps

    I think you're right. Fortunately we live a couple minutes from a super charger and a few other free destination chargers if all else fails. Hopefully Tesla pushes something through quickly as I was so spoiled with the 44 mph speeds. Funny how spoiled I've gotten since I survived the first 3...

    Gen 2 Wall Charger Now Only Goes to 16 Amps

    You did what I was going to do, but figured the electrician would charge me $150 to tell me it's the car or charger's problem. If the 18 ft. Gen 3 chargers were in stock today, I probably would have bought one since I was convinced that would fix it. Maybe it wouldn't.

    Gen 2 Wall Charger Now Only Goes to 16 Amps

    Agreed. I think it's some kind of software compatibility issue. I don't think it has anything to do with power fluctuations. When I put in my charger a year ago I upgraded to 200 amp service, which required a completely new line in from the power line. The whole panel, breakers, etc. is...

    Gen 2 Wall Charger Now Only Goes to 16 Amps

    Based on all the above it must be some kind of software issue. I'm installing the 2020.36.11 update right now to see if that does something. Otherwise, the only thing I can think of is that it's some kind of software issue. If I could get someone to plug their Tesla into my charger and have...

    Gen 2 Wall Charger Now Only Goes to 16 Amps

    Yep, I just did that this afternoon. Took apart my whole breaker panel to check the current coming out of the panel (no issues). Also tried turning off the breaker for 20 minutes. Tried a reset on the charger, as well. I even went as far as going out to Home Depot to buy the Torx 10 and 20...

    Gen 2 Wall Charger Now Only Goes to 16 Amps

    I can increase to 48 without issue. It starts at 48 by default, but if I lower it down before or after charging I can raise it back up. If I move it under 16 amps and then try to raise it higher while charging I get the "Charge Rate Reduced, unplug and try again message". If I unplug it and...

    Gen 2 Wall Charger Now Only Goes to 16 Amps

    I know exactly what you're referring to. It's already set at 48 amps by default. I've tried adjusting it down while charging and then raising it back up. I've also adjusted it down to 16 amps before plugging in the charger and then increasing it after I start charging. That's when it gives...

    Gen 2 Wall Charger Now Only Goes to 16 Amps

    After reading your post I did try the mobile connector and suprisingly had a similar issue. Very funny. I'm still on 2020.28.6. I have an update pending, but the wifi sucks in the garage so who knows when it will download. I'm hoping that might help with the issue. Very frustrating. How...

    Gen 2 Wall Charger Now Only Goes to 16 Amps

    Yes, I tried manually adjusting the amps down on the settings. It didn't change anything. I'm occassionally getting the "Charge Rate Reduced - Unplug and Try Again" error. Sometimes I don't get that error. Very frustrating.

    Gen 2 Wall Charger Now Only Goes to 16 Amps

    It starts out saying 1/48 A and then it slowly ramps up to 16/48 after a minute or so. Went to a local destination charger, which is the same type of wall connector and had no issues hitting 48/48 A. No issues at super chargers either. That leads me to believe it's not a car issue, but...

    Gen 2 Wall Charger Now Only Goes to 16 Amps

    I've had my Gen 2 wall connector for the last year+ with no issues. I've always got 48 amps of power and typically charge around 42-44 mph. Starting a couple of days ago the car only hits 16 amps and 12 mph when using it to charge. The light on the outside shows green like it's charging...

    the "rear camera doesn't work" problem

    Had my appointment this morning to get it fixed. They said it would take a few days to complete so they gave us a loaner. Was surprised to get the notification that service was complete in the afternoon. My wife picked up the car and didn't ask questions, but here's what the service invoice...

    the "rear camera doesn't work" problem

    I hope they have a solve for this. It looks like there's been a complete failure of the camera system so it's not just a small thing. You don't realize how much of the car is run by the cameras until something like this happens -- cruise control/autopilot has been completely shut down, the car...

    the "rear camera doesn't work" problem

    Going to schedule service to see what they can figure out - hopefully remote diagnosis. Will post back on what they come up with.

    the "rear camera doesn't work" problem

    Yes, I believe I disabled everything required to put into a deep sleep for the 9 hours I was at work. Not sure if there's a way to check if it actually went into deep sleep, but everything was off except LTE, didn't check through the app, Sentry off, etc. I'm going to schedule service to see...

    Interface/Software Issue

    Thanks for the suggestion. Yeah, I tried that too. Cleaned out the USB. It wasn't full (I have a 256G stick), but did it just in case.

    Interface/Software Issue

    Yes, I tried turning it off from the menu, but it didn't work. It's been like this for two days now so I've given up hope that it will fix itself.

    the "rear camera doesn't work" problem

    No, it was at work and it was not connected to a charger at all. I left it all the way in the back of the parking lot by itself. I tried the opposite last night by leaving it plugged into the wall charger at home all night. Still hasn't fixed itself this morning. I'm about at the point of...

    the "rear camera doesn't work" problem

    Yep, my autopilot isn't working either. So you didn't do a hard reset or anything and it just fixed itself? Mine has been like this for over a day now. I've tried everything short of a hard reset -- soft reset, turning off the car, letting it go to sleep for 9 hours today with no Sentry mode...

    the "rear camera doesn't work" problem

    I'm having the same exact problem. I think this is a different glitch beyond just the issues people have had with the backup camera not working. Beyond the backup camera issue, my location is stuck at one spot and doesn't change as I drive. Looks like I"m parked and not moving even through I...

    Interface/Software Issue

    Having a few software-related issues today. The car location on the map is stuck at a spot from earlier today and doesn't move. It looks like the car is parked there when I'm driving so it doesn't recognize where I'm currently at. If It's like the GPS froze and doesn't recognize the car has...

    Was the glass break intentional? (EDIT: No it wasn't)

    Definitely not intentional. I think they probably had different glass on the actual truck that wasn't completely the same shatter-proof material they used in the demos. It looks like Franz might have known the glass wasn't the same since he kind of looked at Elon funny when he told him to...

    SoCal LA/OC wood dash/ white dash Swap

    I posted this in another thread, but Tesla mobile service will swap out your dash for you. You'll need to pay for the dash, but if you can't find anyone in your area to swap and don't mind the cost it's an easy alternative. I believe it cost about $250-300 and took about 3-4 weeks for the part...

    Premium White Interior, regrets?

    My wife really wanted white on white, but I told her all the issues she'd have with keeping the white seats clean so she reluctantly agreed to go with black seats. She regretted it from the day the car showed up. She has now swapped out the black for white seats from Tsportline and had Tesla...

    Model 3 seats wearing out early?

    Many manufacturers have abandoned real leather seats not necessarily because of environmental concerns (even though that might be what they publicly say) or cost , but because of weight. Non-leather seats are so good now they provide just as much, if not more, durability, as real leather and...

    Dashswap

    Yes, absolutely got to keep the old dash.

    Dashswap

    Long story short, but wife ordered black seats at my behest (June 2019 delivery) and has regretted it ever since so she decided to change everything to white. For the dash we asked at a service center if we could just order the white dash part (like you'd do at the parts counter of a regular...

    Swapping Black for White Seats

    Thanks for sending. Can't believe how low some of those are listed for. Some don't look like they're in that bad of shape. I wonder what they actually end up selling for. Very few with white seats, but definitely something to consider monitoring as the assortment changes and more M3s with...

    Swapping Black for White Seats

    So my wife has now had her black seats for 1.5 months and is really regretting not getting the white seats to go along with the white exterior on her M3. I know Katzkin and TSportline (and others) have white seat options that can be installed, but she's really hoping to get the Tesla factory...

    Model 3 Gen 2 White Vegan Seats

    Are you sure you have Gen 2 seats? They are slightly different widths from what I understand so they aren't interchangeable. You can see the difference below in these images from the TSportline website. Can you post pictures of the seats?

    Model 3 Gen 2 White Vegan Seats

    Would definitely be interested in purchasing white seats to replace my current black seats. If you're selling, please let me know.

    Which wireless charging mat

    We have the Nomad charging pad. It fits very nicely and looks like it came with the car. It came with two splitter cables, which was an added bonus. So I was able to connect USB drives for both Sentry and music separately. Charging speeds actually seem really fast. I haven't measured...

    Homelink Now An Extra Charge

    Ordered May 28th, door jam manufacturing date says June 2019 and I took delivery on June 12th and it came with Homelink. I kind of thought it was stupid before I received the car (how hard is it to press the button manually??), but I have to say it works better than the clicker that always...

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Mine didn't come with any phone charging cables, but my phone doesn't fit in the charging area anyway (Samsung Note 8). It's about .25" too long. I ended up buying the Nomad wireless charger and I need to take my case off for it to fit.

    App Spinning With No Updates

    The Tesla app is acting weird for both my wife and I. Started at the same time and the same exact thing is happening on both our phones (same Android phone). The app opens just fine, but nothing updates and the notification at the bottom to refresh just keeps spinning. I can go into the...

    Help, One Electrician Wanted To Charge $1500

    The cost is certainly all relative to the type and complexity of the install. I'd love to find a guy who'd charge $1500. The person doing my install said on average it costs $700-900 for everything. I got 2 quotes (both from electricians on the Tesla site) and the first was $2700, the next...

    Best Usb Drive For Sentry Mode?

    I bought this for mine. 128gb Sandisk drive. Very small and low profile. https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-128GB-Ultra-Flash-Drive/dp/B07855LJ99/ref=sr_1_4?qid=1561237593&refinements=p_n_size_browse-bin%3A10285018011&s=pc&sr=1-4

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    When we ordered I was told the 2 weeks stated on the website is really more like 4-6 weeks. Ordered on May 28th and it was ready for pickup 2 weeks to the day. White ext/black inter LR AWD.

    Homelink Garage Door Opening no longer included with Premium Interior Package

    I ordered a LR AWD on May 28th and received it June 10th. It was produced in June and it came with Homelink. I set it up and it works great. We really like it.
