    Teslarati not responding to request for return

    There is no label, you must provide it yourself. I managed to get in contact with them via email through their website ( Contact Us - TESLARATI ). Either way you shouldn't need to contact them to initiate a return. Just go to FedEx, UPS or USPS and have them ship it to: TESLARATI, RMA #55850...

    Sentry mode notification but no video

    I don't really use sentry mode but I tried it the other day. Got a few notifications of activity so I went to review when I got back to my car. I forgot where I saw this, may have been Google, might have even been a popup on the car display but it said that Sentry mode clips could only be...

    Sentry keeps turning on after each drive

    Make sure you're turning it off in both your profile and easy entry.

    Camera error in bright sun

    There are known instances where condensation builds up on the inside of the glass, cover the camera. It seems to be most common when there is a rapid change in temperature and sun is hitting that area. Per Tesla, this is by design. It should go away on it's own but I've read cases where the...

    Tesla mobile service replaced 12V lead acid battery

    In regard to changing the 12V yourself...does the car need to be powered off when switching out the 12V? Also, is the 9V trick behind the front bumper always required when the 12V dies? I was under the impression that you could not open the frunk if the 12V dies.

    Car Won't Lock When I Walk Away

    Are you solely basing this off the the lock/unlock status on your app? Keep in mind the status is not in real-time and can take a few moments to update the locked status of the vehicle. I recommend performing a test. Start by unlocking your car with your phone like you normally would. Then walk...

    Any Recommended Tesla EV Charger Installers in NYC?

    That's a pretty sus quote. $50 in material? That like a few feet of 6AWG.

    Regen braking - Clicking feeling and weak at times

    Might be. I did just update recently.

    Regen braking - Clicking feeling and weak at times

    That's funny you say that. I decided to turn off "Apply brake when regen braking is limited' and it seems to have stopped the feedback that I have been getting. I re-enabled the setting but was not able to reproduce after that. Strange. I'm going to continue to monitor. I have a service appt...

    Regen braking - Clicking feeling and weak at times

    Alright so I think I can reproduce this at will. If I accelerate to say 45-50 and then completely let off the accelerator, the car slows and regen feels normal. However, if I put my foot back on the pedal, give it a bit more throttle and then let off, I feel a click/vibration in the pedal. So...

    Long, LONG time Tesla...analyst I guess at this point. AMA about what's going on in the news.

    What's your overall sense of Tesla leading the EV market for the next 5-10 years?

    Can’t charge new Model Y with home charger but can charge at Tesla Supercharger Have Model 3 and the same Tesla home charger it works.

    This reminds me of the issue where the OP's M3 would charge but his MY would not. Turned out to be a dead end from the M3 charge port that got stuck inside the handle for the charging cable. LOOK inside the charging cable at the circular connections and see if they look different. DO NOT stick...

    Regen braking - Clicking feeling and weak at times

    I'm on version 2022.40.100. It's a new car and I haven't been pushed an update yet. As far as I can tell, regen isn't being limited.
  14. Villainthrpist

    Regen braking - Clicking feeling and weak at times

    I tried finding similar threads on this topic but unsure if what I read was the same as what I am experiencing. Sometimes when I let off the accelerator I can feel a tactile click/pop coming from the pedal during regen braking. From what I read this appears to be the brakes activating. I just...

    Leaving car at a shop. Tips?

    I understand what Valet mode is and how it works. My question is, should I put it in valet mode when dropping it off and overall what are best practices and experience with this. Thanks.

    22% Rate Increase from Geico 🤬

    Was paying $175 on my 2015 WRX with Geico. Their quote on a 2023 MY was in the $300s. StateFarm was nearly the same. Finally got down to $255 with AllState and working on completing defensive driving for another $25 off.

    Leaving car at a shop. Tips?

    Looking to schedule an appointment to get my stock wheels powder coated. Called a few places and they all said it would be a couple of days to complete. What's the experience like leaving a Tesla with a third party shop? Do I leave the car in Valet mode? Anything I need to communicate with them...

    Some questions about 14-50 receptacles

    I appreciate you bringing it my attention.
  19. Villainthrpist

    Some questions about 14-50 receptacles

    Exactly my thought process. It looks like I will be charging about every 2-3 days, overnight. If this were my home or if I were planning on staying here for a longer time, not only would I do it right but I also wouldn't settle for a 20A breaker haha.
  20. Villainthrpist

    Some questions about 14-50 receptacles

    Correct. The ceiling here is 20’ high. The cheapest option of getting 240v to the garage would be to run wire track from the wall heater to above the door frame leading into the garage and then run the wire to the mounting location of the WC. This also results in more demo which I would be...

    Some questions about 14-50 receptacles

    That is correct. The heater housing consists of a metal "molding" the sits in the cutout in the dry wall. I believe it is anchored to a stud. The wires sit inside that metal housing and then the heater + fan is mounted to it. Takes 3 screws to remove the vent and the heater. no splicing behind...

    Some questions about 14-50 receptacles

    The door leading from the garage to the hallway is definitely more robust than the normal doors in the apartment. The connect from the bottom of the door to the floor is tighter but I wouldn't call it sealed. It is also self closing. I would presume that it is either fire-rated or akin to. It...

    Some questions about 14-50 receptacles

    Right...Currently, the splice resides in the housing behind the wall heater. The electrician didn't mention anything about addressing the splice. I know you're talking about a run to the garage, not the current set up, but I figured it was worth mentioning. Ugh, well crap. I might have to make...

    Some questions about 14-50 receptacles

    Well that's disconcerting. Your interpretation is correct. The picture is from a foyer/stairwell (1 flight) that leads to another door upstairs to the apartment. The cable runs through the doorway leaving it slightly ajar. The garage is small and we have parked gas vehicles in there in the past...

    Some questions about 14-50 receptacles

    Wall Connector has been installed and no issues other than connecting to the wifi with my phone. Needed to disable private relay on my phone to get it to connect. Thanks again to everyone for the helpful feedback. Since the original wire was already routed to the wall heater, they just spliced...

    Some questions about 14-50 receptacles

    D.E., thanks for taking the time for sharing this lengthy response. I took away a lot of good information. I do have some questions however. I think I am going to forgo pursing a 5-15, 5-20 or 6-20 receptacle. There aren't any dedicated 120V or 240v going to the garage other than this wall...

    Some questions about 14-50 receptacles

    Unfortunately extending the wire into the garage just does not seem worth the extra $500. The electrician quoted me $450 to set up the charger right where the wall heater is. $1k to extend the wire into the garage. I’m going to test out the length later. Will need my girlfriends help. Some...

    Some questions about 14-50 receptacles

    Noted. Thanks. The HPWC should be fine on the 20A, right? As long as I configure it to run at that?

    Some questions about 14-50 receptacles

    I'll look into the 6-20 as an option. Thanks for the feedback!

    Some questions about 14-50 receptacles

    Just wanted to give a quick thanks for all the replies at 6:30AM haha. But you nailed it on the head. I assumed the wire would have be good for at least 20A given that's what the breaker is rated for. 20A(16A) is perfect for my needs. My girlfriend and I will be sharing the car and it would see...

    Some questions about 14-50 receptacles

    Thanks for the thorough reply. To be clear, the $1000 is to run additional wire from the lines connected to the wall heater into the garage, not from the breaker box. The original plan was to connect that wire to the Wall Connector. Running new wire from the panel is not an option. I was...

    Some questions about 14-50 receptacles

    I'm looking to get a NEMA 14-50 receptacle installed and had a few questions, if anyone can help out. I'm looking to disconnect a wall heater right next to my garage and use that line to power the receptacle. It is powered by a 240V 20A breaker. The heater is the only thing that is on this...

    MY LR waiting room.

    Not sure if it came with PPF. I got my own mudflaps anyway. Not a fan of the OEM ones. Should I go back and ask about the PPF?

    Tesla App and Thanksgiving screwed me (vent)

    Then why won’t they let me push my delivery date? I would still purchase the car before 2023. I just sold my previous so if this falls through I’m kinda f’d.

    Tesla App and Thanksgiving screwed me (vent)

    Ordered a MY on 4/15, fast forward to 11/22 where my EDD was 12/5-12/31. That morning I also submitted my loan application to my CU and by the afternoon I was provided a VIN and requested to schedule my delivery for my now EDD of 11/23-12/2. Ok that was unexpected, now I need to scramble. At...

    Need to schedule delivery - Just applied for loan

    This was not the case. I received the VIN but no MVPA. I think I need to submit the financial information first.

    This is really helpful. Thanks. I got approved for the loan today but still need the MVPA. Still only have the order agreement.

    Need to schedule delivery - Just applied for loan

    My EDD was 12/5-12/31 as of the morning of 11/22 and then that afternoon I received the vin the EDD was bumped up to 11/23-11/30. I received two alerts to schedule delivery. This is obviously extremely abrupt and I do not feel prepared at all now. I've been waiting for the vin to submit my loan...

    Model Y has anyone received 2023 VIN yet?

    This is great post. Just got confirmed for an Austin 2023 LR. I am curious about your range, 240-250 @ 100% seems very low. I may be wrong here but I believe your car needs to cycle through charges and the reading will get more accurate? Don't quote me on that.
  43. Villainthrpist

    MY LR waiting room.

    EDD was 12/5-12/31...Just update today, got my VIN and EDD is now 11/22-12/1! They messaged me schedule delivery. Totally not ready...applying for loan tomorrow and just ordered a Wall Connector. VIN PA0...So 2023 Austin build?

    Credit Unions with good rates that accept applicants anywhere within the US?

    Dumb question - If I finance privately through a CU, do I give Tesla the down payment and finance the difference or do I finance the whole cost with the CU and give them the down payment?

    Preconditioning question?

    So the Climate Control preconditioning also preconditions the battery? Or is there a separate option for that?

    Previous EDD: Dec 8 - Dec 31 Current EDD: Dec 5 - Dec 31 wtf? so does this mean it will come earlier? lol
