    poor WiFi = Sleeping Beauty's "poison apple"

    As a father of a little girl, your story has blatant errors... and since I have no idea about the car technical issues, I will instead correct your story mistakes. Princess Aurora, who is also known as "the sleeping beauty" fell into a sleep after she pricked her finger on a spindle. On the...

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    Had my car since February and I have 3000 miles on it. I finally had what I would consider a significant issue (all others were very minor). Driver rear window became disconnected from it's motor. Can't recall when exactly it happened, but that is a window I rarely use. I noticed that the...

    Firmware 4.4

    I just got 4.4 and I can finally contribute to this thread on topic. I had 4.2 up until 7 days ago, then I had 4.3 for a week, and I've had 4.4 for 1.5 days. When I upgraded to 4.3, I noticed that my HomeLink range had decreased, but I didn't attribute it to the firmware upgrade, I figured it...

    Window Tints: How can you tell if they are legit?

    But how would you ever know? No customer would ever complain about being cheated, because apparently there does not seem to be a way to verify. Customers would complain about crappy service, but never about the tint. Although I do appreciate the effort @Kaivball, all I am asking is if someone...

    Window Tints: How can you tell if they are legit?

    I've been on this forum for a while, and I have been impressed by the depth and breadth of knowledge of the participants. In addition, I noticed that the background of the majority of the posters seems to be in the sciences, so I feel this is as good as any place to pose this question. I...

    Underwhelmed by the technology

    The Model S has a display that tells the same info as the prius. With the prius, when you step on the gas, you see an arrow from the engine to the battery and wheels. When you slow down, you see an arrow go from the wheels to the battery. On the Model S when you step on the Go pedal, the...

    Model S bluetooth issues

    I was trying to get information on this same issue before. I was afraid I was the only one. See post: Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues - Page 148 I am using an iPhone 5. I have noticed that my phone connects 99% of the time when I get in. Only once did I have problems connecting...

    Things you may not have discovered about your Model S?!

    Yes, I have. I can upload a picture later. I can't speak to the complaints about the springs failing over time. I'm not sure what kind of life expectancy the reviewers were expecting for a cheap piece of plastic. As for the complaints about the bottom falling off... well, that's how you get...

    Houston, TX

    The EZ TAG stores have a testing sensor. Do a google search for "ez tag store" to find locations. I went through the test sensor with the sticker in various positions. I found that behind the rear view, on top of the black dots, I was able to get a "yellow light." Since it wasn't "green," I...

    Help with right side of dash display

    I am wondering how I can get something other than the trip mileage on the right side of the speedometer display. First of all, I couldn't find anything in the owner's manual that explains how to reset trip odometer A or B (if I missed it, please direct me to the page). Secondly, is there...

    All 4 Tesla superchargers in DE taken by ICE vehicles.

    Tell that to the people with the "blue wheelchair" spots. Park in one of those, and you get fined and towed! If you park in a fire zone, you get towed. I think the concern regarding PR and diplomacy is stupid. In spite of those, those rules, the general public doesn't seem to "hate"...

    "Charge Cable Unlatched" error (charging at 16A only)

    Just as I was starting to suspect. I wasn't pushing hard enough. I am pretty surprised, because pulling out the UMC was pretty tough (even when it wasn't fully latched. Anyhow, the "two clicks" comment is what finally clued me in. I only recalled hearing one click. So, I went to try it out...

    TESLIVE Speakers and Topics

    In addition to Gen III, I'd like to hear about the replacement for the Roadster. I traded my Roadster in for the Model S. I'd like to know when I can get a Roadster but with less wind noise and a motorized retractable hard-top convertible. (a la Mercedes SL class)

    "Charge Cable Unlatched" error (charging at 16A only)

    OOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooh! Two clicks... I never listened for a second. Perhaps I need to push "harder." [sigh] Ok, I'll try that next. But based on what I am reading, I think that will end up being the problem, because I have the same symptoms as all the other people who didn't push hard...

    Anyone have problem with audio streaming issues? I get clipping of audio playback with both my Slacker source and my iPhone 5 Bluetooth source.

    Model S Software/Firmware wishlist

    I noticed that I have wanted an easy way to enter addresses into the NAV. When someone sends me a text of their address, I would like to cut and paste it into the NAV. Since the text message is on my iPhone, adding an address entry for the NAV via the iOS app would allow cut and paste.

    Should EVs Make Artificial Sounds at Low Speeds?

    I'm with you right up to "noise doesn't have any effect." I believe that needs to be clarified. All vehicles make their own level of sound. Trains make a certain characteristic sound, as do motorcycles, mopeds, ICE cars, and bicycles. When you approach a train track, you have a duty to...

If there is a valet mode, I haven't found it yet, but there needs to be a way we can give the car to the valet and lock the glove box so that they can't get in there. Is that a...

    Slacker error or feature?

    "Charge Cable Unlatched" error (charging at 16A only)

    Yesterday was my first day with the car. I saw that error the second time I plugged in the car (It may have been there the first time, but I didn't look). In any case, I tried unseating and reseating the plug, but the error persisted. The car charged at 16A (but I figured that was because...

    Speculation on what "TESLIVE" actually is?

    Maybe TESLIVE is a version of MacWorld Expo or WWDC, except for Tesla Motors products. That would explain why the name is a mashup of "Tesla" and "Live." And it would explain why it seems to be hinting at some sort of meeting involving a large number of Tesla Motors enthusiasts.

    How often does Tesla miss their delivery window ?

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    If you pay by loan... when you press the "pay now" button, it lets you calculate how much you owe. So if you are financing 90% of your car payment, then if the car is $100,000 and you are getting $90,000 financed and you paid a deposit of $5,000, then it allows you to pay the balance of $5,000...

    Can it replace my Jag XF Suprtcharged? the numbers do not add up......

    I would like to add that the "Super Storm Sandy" concern is a non-issue. Last time we had a hurricane in Houston, power was out in many places for over a week. Power was also out for the gas stations. The gas stations were not pumping gas, so the gas cars had what they had in the tank. A BEV...
