    Which Snow-Chain are you using with your Model S?

    Just because it hasn’t happened doesn’t mean it won’t. I went 8 years w/o a front plate and got a ticket. From a cop I drove by daily for 8 years.

    Which Snow-Chain are you using with your Model S?

    I don’t know about Nevada but in cali even if you have snow tires on your car you are still required by law to carry chains Nov 1-March 31st in your vehicle when going over mountain passes. I know this law is in place in most states. (And many of them will ask to see them and proof they will fit...

    Which Snow-Chain are you using with your Model S?

    Instead of chains which may or may not fit. Then even when you get them on there’s a very good chance they will snap, and take out some very expensive suspension components (happens all the time on teslas) look at auto socks. I use them on both my teslas. They’re easy on. Easy off and they won’t...

    Which Snow-Chain are you using with your Model S?

    Define “original tire” There is 2012-2012 before refresh and then there is 2021-2023 after refresh

    Am I being an idiot trying to hold onto my p85dL outside of warranty?

    My P85D+(software locked p90D) will and has taken a 22m3p on a track. I walked away from it. Then I got into the 3 and my hubby got into the S. Again walked away. I also have a 3 and an S (MY 3 is rwd) and while I’m like you around town I prefer my 3 and long trips the S the S still feels so...

    Car won’t turn off

    For sure no keycard. Or phones I was alone in the car. Did the reboot. I just hesitate to call tesla get until it’s either doing it all the time or I know how to for sure replicate it. Otherise I know the dang thing will behave and they’ll give it back to me and be like “within spec”

    2015 P90D (range upgrade)

    My 90kw part # is 1014116-00-C It’s not on your list. Any clue how this will fare?

    Car won’t turn off

    So about a week ago I went into a grocery store and after about 20 minutes I get a notification that the doors are unlocked (I have walk away locks on) I opened the app and just clicked the little button to lock it. Another 20 minutes another message. I go out to the car. Lights are on, MCU is...

    Bubble on instrument cluster

    You are aware that you cannot just change the bulbs MS it’s a full headlight replacement.

    Some customers are getting offer of $7500 off + 10k free miles

    That’s why I’m asking the question. It wasn’t my paperwork and I highly questioned him because I want to take advantage. I even just simply asked to see the MVPA. I haven’t yet seen either thing.

    Model S leaking glue under touchscreen

    But it’s $100 wasted dollars on a dying mcu1. Your call man. But the way of the mcu’s. The goo starts to leak. And within 6 months black screen. You can still sort of drive the car. But really only in a limp state to get home.

    Some customers are getting offer of $7500 off + 10k free miles

    For anyone that’s already taken delivery and received the credit. Either the $3750 or the $7500 how was the credit classified? A friend took delivery yesteday and was given paperwork so that when she does her taxes for 2022 she can claim the credit. Tesla just did it front end instead of waiting...

    Model S leaking glue under touchscreen

    Mobile would tell you the service is free because they cannot replace this. I mean you no offense but it’s a bit astounding that people feel like it should be recalled after 7 years of being used daily. If something happened on your PC after 7 years would you feel the same way? No because it’s...

    Which Snow-Chain are you using with your Model S?

    You technically only need one set. And they go on the rears according to the tesla manual. I however live with a boatload of snow so there have been times where I’ve needed more than the two. Just a couple of times. Better safe than sorry and since they take a few days to source better to have...

    HV battery died during my road trip (2018 Model S)

    Shouldn’t need this. Tesla almost fully discharges them before they take them off or put them back on. So it would have been at a very very low soc before it was even installed.
  16. Alysashley79

    Which Snow-Chain are you using with your Model S?

    For those asking. Here’s the website (Amazon also routinely has them) https://autosock.us/show-chains-near-me/ I have high awd ms and rwd 3. On my awd I put them on all 4 because they can’t hurt anything and better traction. I put them on the rears on my 3.

    Need help regarding price levels for a used Tesla Model S P85D out of warranty

    I have a p85D (actually p90D that’s locked into 85) My HV has been replaced under warranty. And the Hv/DU warranty is good through April 2023. I would ask mid 40’s for mine. Part of the # though is where you live. I live in the Seattle area so can get a higher amount than say you could in...

    HV battery died during my road trip (2018 Model S)

    Sorry this happened. Typical turn around is anywhere from 5 weeks to 8 weeks. It was 6 weeks from the day the tow truck dropped off my car until I picked it back up.

    2014 sunroof drain plugged

    Just pour some hot water and make sure they’re draining. I waited until it was too late. I ended up having to pull the a pillar. The sun visor off and part of the headliner to get it fixed.

    Model 3 : control arm disengaging

    I know it seems like “new” but they haven’t made any 90 packs in years. They’re just putting reman packs on. My invoice doesn’t say one way or the other but I was told they’re ALL reman.

    Model 3 : control arm disengaging

    Again I’ll ask where you’re getting your info that tesla is offering “new” replacement batteries. They don’t. Call them and ask. They don’t. They’re all reman

    2014 sunroof drain plugged

    Last night was our first heavy rain where my car was parked in the rain. Came out to a small puddle. Was able to absorb the water. This morning in the light I opened the sunroof. Cleaned the rails and found the passenger front drain plug is clogged. I searched the internet and was told to...

    Model 3 : control arm disengaging

    Just out of curiosity. Where are you getting your info on a “new” 85 pack for ms? You are aware that tesla hasn’t actually made an 85 pack for several years. They put 90 packs into the old 85 packs. And then software limit the cars to 85kw. I had a 90 pack out into my ms in July. It charges...

    Model 3 : control arm disengaging

    1)the model 3’s battery doesn’t cost $16k. He’ll even a ms 85 pack isn’t that much. The 3 only has a 60kw pack. 2)I own a Toyota. For my model S it cost me $528 for two control arms including labor. I also had to replace the control arms on my Toyota (shocking I know. Other types of cars also...

    Model 3 : control arm disengaging

    While I’m really sorry this happened to you this isn’t technically on tesla. This could have happened to any vehicle. They aren’t finicky in any manner. They’re just cars.

    Dashboard Issue?

    It’s a crazy amount. I think like $700 or something stupid like that. You might inquire about mcu2 upgrade. It’s $1500 BUT you get a new IC and MCU. fwiw my MCU followed with dripping about 6 months after my IC. (Tesla fixed my IC under used warranty)

    Getting new wheels and tires with no $120 BT TPMS sensors. What error will display?

    I guess what I meant was you pick up a nail. Slow leak which tpms would have picked up and you keep driving. Now it’s a full blow out. That could have been avoided.

    HV battery died during my road trip (2018 Model S)

    I know i don’t live in the same area as you but this has NOT been my experience in 9 years of being with tesla.

    New model 3 LR, grinding sound during turns, SC says ok?

    They’re only quoting that because it’s a “noise” complaint. If something is actually wrong they won’t charge you. Fwiw I’ve had three teslas. Teslas are silent. Beyond that it’s not normal. Not ever.
  31. Alysashley79

    Getting new wheels and tires with no $120 BT TPMS sensors. What error will display?

    the downfall of not having them is that if you blow a tire you won’t know until it’s to late. Honestly. If that happens you’re out $400 for a new tire and $300 for a. I know it’s an expense that no one wants to spend BUT it could also save you $. Just my two cents.

    Model 3 : control arm disengaging

    If you’re out of warranty with suspension stuff don’t take it to tesla. Take it to a reputable suspension place in your area. My out of warranty ms only goes to tesla if it’s HV or du related.

    Hit today; am I totaled or not? Any guesses welcome

    dude…so sorry that happened. I’ve seen worse sitting at tesla collision in Bellevue. BUT guessing that’s going to cost upwards of $30k and will be down into early next year. When my 3 had some minor damage I took it to exotic and they couldn’t even get me in to begin anything until end of...

    HV battery died during my road trip (2018 Model S)

    An HV battery replacement is one of those things tesla is supposed to give you a loaner car for. Not an ICE. Not Uber credits but a loaner. It can and likely will take upwards of 6-8 weeks before your car is returned. I’m a little shocked the service center you’re at isn’t willing to give you a...

    Service Bulletin out on Hard Acceleration "Shudder"

    I’m so confused why anyone is having to pay for the repairs for this when a TSB was issued which means tesla is on the hook to replace them for free.

    Can you pair a Model X key fob to Model 3?

    This is quite false. They’re all just programmed to the car. The older cars cannot be programmed at home and require a visit to the service center. I had an older fob from my 2013 tesla that they paired to my 2014 model S.

    Sales advisor offered me a Model 3 LR upgrade ready for pick up THIS week [Sep 2022]

    This question is really a personal question. You’ll have every one of us telling you to do one thing or another. But at the end of the day I suppose you ordered the RWD for a financial reason or just the sheer fun of driving rwd. Do what’s best for you and your family. Fwiw: wheh I ordered...

    Sales advisor offered me a Model 3 LR upgrade ready for pick up THIS week [Sep 2022]

    Your buddy is either not a skilled winter driver or he had summer tires on. I have a 22 RWD with LFP and have zero issues driving it in the snow. I live at a high altitude and have feet of snow on the ground that I drive through. I have nokian snows on in the winter and haven’t once gotten even...

    Front Lower Control Arms (Fore Links) and Upper Control Arms Left & Right - AWD- Brand New, bought from Tesla, never installed, with hardware

    Don’t know if you sold them or not. But you can return all your parts to tesla. I’ve done so twice in the past week. (They will take for up to 6 moths after purchase)

    Model S leaking glue under touchscreen

    The good news here is that with mcu2 upgrade you get a new IC. Two birds one stone

    2015 Model S shutdown again!

    Sorry you’re going through all of this. Roadside should have been able to see all the errors the car was throwing and have a basic idea of what was wrong. My HV died a couple months ago and they were able to see the errors staring around 1am and told me over the phone the HV was going to be to...

    MCU Failure and AC stuck on

    It actually will if he gets into the car in the drivers seat for any reason because it’s the mcu1 fail safe so that it can be driven. Safely and comfortably.

    MCU Failure and AC stuck on

    I don’t recommend letting the AC run for 10 days because then you’ll end up paying for mcu and condenser unit. $$$. Have you tried doing the two finger salute? (Assume so) Tesla built in the “on” for air if the mcu fails so if it’s hot or cold you won’t be either sweating or freezing. If the...

    Just come across the phantom braking issue, considering canceling my order

    If you’re paying attention to your surroundings it’s a quick move to continue accelerating. honestly for me it’s not a big deal. It’s got over 50k AP1 miles and over 12k vision miles and still use it all the time. There are soooo many people that truly Turn on AP and think. Oh. I can text. Or...

    Just come across the phantom braking issue, considering canceling my order

    I have a ms with ap1 and a 22 m3 with AP (No FSD) Here is my take on the situation. Have I experienced phantom breaking? Sure. Is it “severe” or “harsh”? Maybe twice. Does it keep me from using AP. Nope. Part of it happening is how you as the driver react. Tesla (and no other mfg) is at a...

    2015 P85D, 84K... What to worry about....

    Something else you might try is to balance the pack. Max charge drive it down to around 10% repeat. (Just make sure to drive it as soon as it finishes charging at max)
  48. Alysashley79

    2015 P85D, 84K... What to worry about....

    just gotta say. NEVER. EVER. max charge your car and let it just sit there. It will degrade the battery like no one’s business. Some of the older 85kw packs actually will stop at 99% and will say charging complete. My old 85 pack would only go to 98% and would say charging complete. After...

    2015 P85D, 84K... What to worry about....

    so a couple questions. Why 94%? (Best charging practice would be to not charge over 90% unless you need it and plan to immediately drive. When you unplugged did you unplug from a supercharger or home? Going from 94% down to 36% does feel a little bit to much. In the summer I can usually get...

    2015 P85D, 84K... What to worry about....

    It originally came with an 85kw pack. Two months ago it died. No idea why. Just got up to leave one morning and it was dead. Tesla put in a 90kw pack but it’s software locked to 85kw (which honestly is fine by me. It has more power than it used to have and when I super to max charge because it’s...
