    Charge Stats Not Showing In App

    Charge Stats Still Missing

    This fixed it for me and I didn't have to wait, it just started working in minutes: I turned all of the permission on. Later I'll test to see if it's any one of the permissions in particular, as I prefer not to be sharing my driving experience with Tesla.... But now that I can use this...

    Nervous Nelly [FSD Complaint]

    For the record, I do NOT want Tesla to be sued over this. I love the Teslas we have. We need Tesla to help save the climate. I just want this issue addressed so its not a safety issue. How am I suppose to encourage other people to buy a Tesla, when this problem continues to be really...

    Nervous Nelly [FSD Complaint]

    While this 'always done it this way' thinking might apply to some people, I don't feel this applies to me at all. I'm constantly pushing the envelope, and people who know me have said that I'm a bigger, better, faster kind of guy. But safety IMHO is important. It's ok to improve something...

    Nervous Nelly [FSD Complaint]

    I'm hearing that more automated is important to you. But how can you say this in general? Are there not a number of competing 'design philosopy's, including: all electric, safer, fast, powerful, simpler, more automated, fun to drive, top of the line, stylish, affordable, reliable, practical...

    Nervous Nelly [FSD Complaint]

    Thank you for the suggestion. However, the unexpected sudden braking started before I was towing. Towing only makes unexpected sudden braking much more dangerous. I don't think it's possible for the Tesla to know just how slick the road is. Sometimes I even have to find a safe place to...

    Nervous Nelly [FSD Complaint]

    Thanks. I already have. The first time it breaked hard with a load of lumber on the trailer was when I reported it. Thanks again.

    Snippiness 2.0

    Please don't call anyone names. I paid $65k for my Y. We own 2 Teslas and a Nissan Leaf. I also have an order for a CT. I'm also the founder of the Bridgeport Racing Club - Racing to save the Climate, and we show electric cars in a float for the longest running 4th of July parade in the...

    Snippiness 2.0

    Thank you, but I'm not interested in help and if I want your advise I'll ask for it. No one on this forum can fix this issue, unless they happen to be a Tesla software engineer or Elon. But I think it's important to report unsafe software. If something does happen to me, at least my family...

    I heard this a.m. that author Steven King owns his 2nd Tesla, but won't use the auto stuff either.

    I respect your opinion but I would much rather have it without the unexpected sudden braking for no reason.

    Snippiness 2.0

    So someone inappropriately moved this to the FSD category here. HOWEVER, as the original poster here, I don't own FSD. This is NOT about FSD! Stop it.

    For what it's worth, my Y does seem to behave better in city driving, and on more traveled roads.

    Nervous Nelly [FSD Complaint]

    I hear you that you might not drive the way I do. You're welcome to do that. But pleeease don't tell me how to drive. I'm 62. I've been driving since I was 14. I have an excellent driving record. No vehicle I've ever driven has had these problems. I'm 80 miles from shopping and drive a...

    Nervous Nelly [FSD Complaint]

    Because of it's utter stupidity I've decided to rename my Y: Nervous Nelly. The next step will be to sell it. In cruse control (aka: whatever they call it) it drives like a stupid child with bad eyesight. I can't even count the number of times it's braked for no reason. It is only a...

    AC relay for car charger?

    I suppose the other option, is to just wait for Tesla to fix this TOU (Time of Usage) management issue, as they really must at some point, if only because other car vendors will also fix it. (I guess I'm just getting impatient with this, as I think Tesla should have fixed this important issue...

    AC relay for car charger?

    Interesting. I like it but... How do we deal with key privacy? Are we going to be giving our car keys to them? Is that a good idea? Do we just 'trust' them? Why is it that this is free? What do they get out of the deal? Humm? Maybe I'm just an old kodger, but I'm not so hot on...

    AC relay for car charger?

    Was planning ahead, as future vehicles might draw more. There is a J1772 version that draws more I think. Yes if I don't take the software approach, I'm looking at going that way. There are a number of different bi-stable relays I've found. None I'm in love with just yet because they all are...

    AC relay for car charger?

    "will wake my Tesla and start it charging"?? Ok, but how exactly do I tell a Tesla to turn charging on and off?

    Have you tried it yourself? How do I set my electricity time of use rates and times in it?

    AC relay for car charger?

    I'm looking for suggestions for a good power relay to buy to help limit when our cars can charge. Basically I'm looking for at least a 240V / 60A relay that can be switched with low voltage, like 12V. It will hook between our 50A electric service panel breaker and our NEMA 14-50 220V car...

    Should Tesla buy First Solar?

    I think First Solar has a great product: Much better cadmium telluride solar panel technology; i.e. cheaper and better. Trouble is they don't seem to have the business sense to capitalize on it. Their stock price just took another huge dive it seems because they missed a financial target. This...

    Any problems or challenges in having two Model 3's in the same household?

    Thanks, but someone above already said as much, but the Q remains, how was this setup if you recall? Perhaps once delivery gets closer, this will just magically happen, or there is some other mechanism that I'm not seeing to get this done. I hear you that this works. My Q is how to set it up?

    Any problems or challenges in having two Model 3's in the same household?

    Did you ever get an answer? I share a M3 with my partner under her email address, but also have ordered a CT and an MY under my email address. But when I login to www.Tesla.com and go to product-finalize, it says, (emphasis below is mine): How am I suppose to use the App on my phone that is...

    The perfect Model 3 emergency jack?

    I just rotated the tires w/ 1 AL sissor jack, and one floor jack to lift up one side at a time. Works fine. I got my AL scissor jack off ebay. It was a used porche jack. I had to grind the nub off the top a bit to fit the Tesla hole when I first got it.

    Scheduled charging vs Scheduled Departure

    I think someone at Tesla really needs to take a look at these 'features' because they are poorly documented, don't do what you want, and really could be much better.

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

    I think it was a brilliant marketing tactic, to get publicity! This clearly demonstrates that this is a man toy. We're not interested in a pretty little sports car here, my gal already has a M3. I want a mean, tough truck. And I think throwing a steel ball at the window was just the sort of...

    This truck design had better be a joke....

    I ordered one. It's a man truck, not some pretty boy toy. I just love it. And I can't afford the star-ship yet, so I'll get the truck.
  29. Togg

    It's a boy!

    I love it. Zero to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds. And I really I loved the shattered glass demonstration. Very cool. Very masculine! What a cool marketing stunt. I ordered one. God knows how I'll pay for it, but I've got a year to work on that.

    Running the Tesla app in GNU/Linux on a desktop or Librem 5?

    I downloaded this and tried it, but so far can't get it to work. I'm trying this: $ java -jar VisibleTesla.jar Error: JavaFX runtime components are missing, and are required to run this application Then I found that this helps get past that error: $ sudo apt-get install openjfx So trying...

    Running the Tesla app in GNU/Linux on a desktop or Librem 5?

    Has anyone run the Tesla app under Linux, like on a desktop, via something like this or this procedure which leverages a Chrome browser and ARChon? They say that some Android apps can be run on Linux, and some can not, ...so before digging in I just thought I'd ask if anyone else has already...

    Judge not, lest ye be judged I think.

    Got hit by a tire today.

    When you pull the back wheel off, you get a certain amount of access inside that is not obvious until the wheel is removed.

    Preventive eMMC replacement on MCU1

    I think it would be interesting to get a team of software people together to write and build a fully open source, and open hardware Tesla controller, to replace the existing controller in one's car, much like this smartphone project. Or perhaps even better, get one of the companies producing...

    0-60 time button

    That's just supposition on your part. I'm a safe driver. Just asking for 0-60, i.e. ordinary highway speeds; in other words, I wasn't requesting this with a 1 in front of the 6, which I might also then agree with you. Also this probably should be disabled when in chill mode, as it's not...

    0-60 time button

    This test can be run with or without the feature I asked for. It just would make doing it easier. If the car is not performing, then it's not performing and service might be an option. So your point makes no sense to me.

    As far as I know there is only one person in the world who wants this: Me. How you arrive at 7 is beyond me.

    0-60 time button

    To Tesla engineers: I want a button to automatically compute my 0-60 time (or 0-x time would be even better). Works like this: 1) I touch this special screen button while stopped. 2) When I press down the the accelerator petal the timer starts. 3) When the car gets to 60 mph the timer ends...

    Home built EV + 5 Teslas featured in Bridgeport's 157th 4th of July parade

    I think there are about 5000 people who come to this parade. The whole area just gets packed with campers everywhere. We had planned to show the cars later, but unfortunately I was under the weather from a cold and so we just had to let that go. But we got lots of cheers, and we gave out...

    Home built EV + 5 Teslas featured in Bridgeport's 157th 4th of July parade

    Wow. When I screw up, I screw up big! But looking again at what the web drags in I see a range from 3.2 to 5.9. Bunches of people are wrong on this. 3.2: Model 3 | Tesla various: Tesla 0-60 Times | Tesla Model 3, Model S, Model X, and Roaster 5.1: Tesla Model 3 Specs: 220-310 Miles Range...

    Home built EV + 5 Teslas featured in Bridgeport's 157th 4th of July parade

    Just wanted to share... Our little town of Bridgeport, CA, population 600, explodes with people on the 4th each year with countless thousands of fun loving parade goers. So we gave them our best show. Our float was led by our friend's home made EV which towed our float, (made from an old...

    IDEA drop box

    No doubt, other EV companies are reading the forums here for ideas and information for their cars, e.g. VW, BMW, ...
