    2022.8.10.1 on MCU1

    Oh and I would like the turn signal indicators near the top of the IC. I would be more likely to notice them if the signal is left on. Sometimes my radio is turned up and the tick sound can't heard.

    2022.8.10.1 on MCU1

    I read this whole thread as my 2013 S60 with MCU1 and upgraded emmc received a notification of update on and I'm still on non-functional 3G. Yeah if I need net access I use my phone as a hotspot. Most times I don't need it but maybe I'll pony up $200 for the LTE board. But yeah I'm hesitant...

    Having a heater issue and can’t find a solution. Hope someone else has gone down this rabbit hole and can give me some direction.

    When my 2013 S had intermittent heat I put scanmytesla on it and noticed a thermocouple would read 50 degrees for a few seconds and then jump to 400 degrees for several seconds and back to 50 degrees. Whenever it jumped to 400 degrees the PTC would turn off. So I searched for which...

    Experience with 2020.48.37.6

    I have solid roof and SXM. Maybe because mine is an older 2013 S. Oh and for those that disappeared my SXM went MIA a couple days ago and I had to power the car down from the service menu to get it back. I haven't installed 48.36.7 yet.

    Model S HVAC issues

    Might be an intermittent mixing door motor issue. Mine would not defrost and it turned out the motor was stuck. I removed it, took the motor apart, added lithium grease and it started working again. Then I had no heat in the winter. The thermocouple in the PTC heater would read normal 55...

    PTC heater woes

    PTC heater replaced and all is well again. Took about 3 hours start to finish. Biggest road block was being extra safe with removing passenger knee airbag.

    PTC heater woes

    Ok so my heat hasn't been working for a couple of days now. SMT shows 415 again for Heater R. I took the trim panels off and pulled the PTC plug (power to board and canbus). It still showed 415. I then closed SMT and restarted it low and behold both Heater sensors disappeared. So I think...

    Tesla Thermal Management System - explanation

    Quick question, I have smt and my heater R is bouncing from 55 F to 415 F which is causing my PTC to shutoff and not warm the cabin. Where is the physical location of Heater R probe. Is it in the heater box or ducting or is it within the PTC itself? Thank you

    PTC heater woes

    This morning it was 43 F outside. I turned on preheat and set to 80 degrees and it took 30 minutes to get to 60 degrees. I drive to work and about ten minutes on the highway I notice warm air coming from the vents. Set climate to auto and car quickly gets to 80 degrees. Damn gremlins lol. So...

    PTC heater woes

    So I fixed my defroster flap and now I have a new issue. NO HEAT. I ordered the DCDC fuses in case those were bad and almost bought a used PTC. I hooked up scanmytesla and am observing some interesting behavior with the HEATER R sensor and PTC air heater. HEATER R shows 415 degrees F and PTC...

    2013 defrost actuator not working

    I fixed my defrost actuator. Earlier this year I was using the defrost vents to cool my dashcam. A few months later I noticed my defrost vents stopped blowing air. I fiddled with various vent settings and did some reboots but nothing worked. I figured it was either stuck or the actuator died...

    Clicking Noise Coming From Center Of Dash Sounds Like Fan But It Is A Motor This Cannot Be Normal?

    The actuator for the defroster is behind the glove box on LHD cars and inline with the center passenger vent. It's the closest to the firewall and has VG-INLET (ADS) on its side. There are three screws holding it in. A stubby screwdriver is best to remove it.

    Poll: TACC vs. Normal Cruise Control

    Tesla has a speed limit mode. I've done this on my S and it works.

    Model S vs Golf R

    Although I have an S it's not the easiest for some people to ingress and egress especially the back seat. On the other hand people would probably enjoy riding in a Tesla especially if they have never experienced one.

    Michelin vs. Goodyear, what to get?

    I went with goodyear RSA on 19s. The previous set lasted for 50000 miles and I was satisfied with the tires.

    Tesla should only publish 5-60 times for the Model 3

    Yup, every time I enter a highway I come to a full stop and then mash the pedal. It doesn't matter what the cars behind me think. "Why is this idiot stopping when there is no stop sign." 5-60 can be a useful metric.

    Any insight on this noise?

    Wow 1g for a condenser replacement? I believe mine is leaking on the passenger side and the condenser and o-rings were about 460 before tax. I haven't had it installed yet. I can't imagine paying 500 for labor.

    Report: Tesla Considering Austin, Tulsa for Next U.S. Factory

    RE: Texas. I also believe you can't buy a car that is currently in the store or service center. It has to be delivered, Or am I missing something?

    I did two reboots and mine came back. 2013 with 3G.

    Cooling louvers never open

    They open whenever the cooling system needs more airflow over the condensers. Mine will open if it's hot outside and I precondition the car. The ac compressor will ramp up and fans will ramp up to high speed and louvers will open.

    Any insight on this noise?

    Strange, I think the fan spins faster than the clicking noise you hear. I had taken my fan off yesterday because my condenser is leaking and will need to be replaced. You might check for debris. You can either see it from the top by removing the driver side apron under the hood or removing...

    Model S Dual Chargers, what do I need to do?

    Hardware needed to charge at 80 amps is either a Tesla Gen 1 or Gen 2 high powered wall connector (HPWC) and dual charger equiped Model S. The HPWC is made by Tesla but I'm not sure you can get a Gen 2 new, it is listed on Tesla site. They have the Gen 3 HPWC which is limited to 48 amp output.

    Model S Dual Chargers, what do I need to do?

    I have had my S for two years and have 45 mile round-trip to work and 40 amp charging has been fine. In those two years I have put 45k miles on the odometer.

    Do I buy the Y or keep my S?

    I added an aftermarmrt dashcam on my 2013 S and Open Pilot. Although new would be great I still like the design and ride of the S. And the S can haul a lot of cargo.

    SiriusXM channels are back! 2020.12

    SiriusXM channels are back! 2020.12

    Voice Recognition

    My 2013 S changed how voice commands are initiated with the latest updates. Previously I had to hold the voice button down, speak the command, and then let go of the button. It does not work this way with the new update. Trust my I thought my commands were broken until I tried a different...

    Is it noted in the manual for the new method? I didn't see anything in the release notes.

    Well the old firmware worked with holding the voice button down until the command is done being spoken then let go of voice button. Try that and see if it works.

    I'm on 2020.4.1 and I noticed now on my Model S I just tap the voice button once, speak a command and it works. My S used to operate by holding down the voice button and speaking the command then letting go. That method no longer works in my car. The click, speak, click method didn't work on...
