    No text message functionality anymore after UI update

    AP1 2016 model S here. I used to get my text messages on my iphone delivered in the dashboard. It would make a sound and give me a prompt allowing me to choose whether to read it out or not. After the recent update with the new UI (I actually like it, it gives me one button access to the...

    Seat Back Organizers for Tesla Model X

    @CarsonGallo How is this working out for you? Those MOLLE organizers seem… a bit much. But curious if it was a good solution for you. I have a model S so I’m looking for the mesh one that you linked that you originally said you wanted, but now I cannot find a place to buy it. A tacticool MOLLE...

    Powering the 12v port to run a fridge, can an app keep the Tesla awake?

    This is neat! Unfortunately I'm on AP1 and don't get sentry mode, so not sure how much I could benefit from this knowledge myself, but under 200W is decidedly not too bad. I'm very curious what your 1KW load is! Based on my ScanMyTesla app observations I could agree with this but I don't know...

    Vendor Scan My Tesla, a CANBUS reader for Android

    I'll play around with it some more. Definitely jumped to this conclusion without a lot of data gathering.

    Powering the 12v port to run a fridge, can an app keep the Tesla awake?

    Nice, I haven't exactly seen those types of units, that is cool. Yeah I think a DC powered PC build would be neat. But for my personal use I would want a single high spec SFF PC that can take as input either 120VAC or 12VDC with reasonably practical hotplug interface and 400W or so of capacity...

    Vendor Scan My Tesla, a CANBUS reader for Android

    My 2016 post facelift AP1 S has now been upgraded to 2021.24.4 and SMT is no longer working. Does anybody know what's going on?

    Powering the 12v port to run a fridge, can an app keep the Tesla awake?

    Yes. At this point in time, there are not quite any widespread adoption in high end pc parts of 12v only motherboards but I think it will come around within the next 5 years for sure. I forgot to mention I also had the diagnostic port under the MCU hooked up to an OBDLink MX+ and was using the...

    Rear/ Side mirrors auto-dimming in Model S, and my attempt to disable it

    Driving back from NYC this weekend I noticed my dimming mirrors had stopped dimming. I don't know what the cause might be but it may be somehow related to the fiddling around I did with the rearview when I was originally trying to run the 12V ACC to dashcam hardware kit. I ended up giving up on...

    Powering the 12v port to run a fridge, can an app keep the Tesla awake?

    As I understand it, (older?) model S (of which I have one) is ok to tap 12v (and draw from it at rates that are within sane reason). For 3 and Y this is not as feasible due to the car detecting the drain on the 12v battery and assuming at that point that the battery is degraded/defective. But...

    Power management/Energy saving mode gone from menu

    I see. Pretty much all fuses are populated on mine! The SC replaced the blown cigarette port fuse for me for free. Maybe there are some spares stashed in here. I’m slightly worried that this passenger panel will become loose from all the repeated opening up and closing I’ve been doing lately…

    Powering the 12v port to run a fridge, can an app keep the Tesla awake?

    Pretty sure the best solution to this one is a direct tap on the 12V battery, because any other solution to keep the 12V accessory powered on will power on the car computers which will draw 5x more than your fridge (when it runs…) If it’s only for the fridge then you’d only need wires that...

    Power management/Energy saving mode gone from menu

    To clarify for posterity they are F202 and F207 listed here: Tesla Model S (2015-2017) Fuse Diagram • FuseCheck.com Both are blue 15A fuses so it indeed does not seem to matter which one to tap. The 3rd and 8th from the top on the left side tall column of them. I’ve got these posi-taps that i...

    Power management/Energy saving mode gone from menu

    OMG I’m an idiot for not considering the cornucopia of connectivity options at passenger footwell, which is far easier (it’s along the way…) to run to the dashcam area than the center console! Thanks for that reminder 🤦‍♂️

    Anyone have experience with this rear seat cup holder console?

    Wonderful. The ability to pop out and put a larger cup is great, I wonder if it’ll be strong enough for that much liquid but I could easily reinforce the 3D model myself if necessary. PLA is what you used, I’m assuming?

    Power management/Energy saving mode gone from menu

    I’ve set up a Viofo A129 Pro Duo dashcam in my 2016 post-facelift pre-rearseat-cupholder S75D (AP1) via the always-on 12V from the microphone area using the hardware kit. Side note on this dashcam install: Turns out the time consuming part by far was routing the cable to go to the rear camera, I...

    MKBHD Dumps on Tesla’s Yoke Implementation

    I looked into this some more, and I now see that there are little positioning nubs on the surface, and supposedly there is haptic feedback when a button is activated? That helps but it still doesn’t necessarily allow you to feel it with your fingertip before you push the button in, you only get...

    Initial yoke impressions

    I just don’t understand going stalkless at all. This is a concept in product design that a car maker simply cannot afford to toss out. It’s about making the controls accessible and unambiguous AT ALL TIMES, it’s a safety issue! Stalks are great because they do not move with the wheel. To put...

    MKBHD Dumps on Tesla’s Yoke Implementation

    One of the reasons i went used model S over used model 3 was that the 3 (with no instrument cluster) felt like a toy in comparison. I somehow had an issue with the autopilot control on the shifter stalk. The logical part of my brain keeps thinking that the layout of the controls (i.e. stalks!)...

    Anyone have experience with this rear seat cup holder console?

    I don't want to get the cheap plastic cup holders because it completely blocks the rear air vents... I guess I could keep the velcro in place and just have it in the trunk, to break out only when cup holders are needed, but this is not ideal.

    Vendor Scan My Tesla, a CANBUS reader for Android

    I've got a post-facelift 2016 model S (AP1), the cable is the post-2015 one from maxwell auto tech. I got the self-crimp cable and it was a bit confusing which pins to hook up, but all I needed to do was put the CAN3+ on pin 6 and CAN3- on pin 14 (and the power and ground of course), the OBD...

    Vendor Scan My Tesla, a CANBUS reader for Android

    Great news. So I got my android tablet running and bought SMT for it and it took a slight bit of fiddling but after that it's quite easy to get it to connect to the car. Actually, all the stats are coming up just fine in SMT, so maybe tesLAX is the one that doesn't know my old Model S...

    Vendor Scan My Tesla, a CANBUS reader for Android

    Update, well I connected what I’m pretty sure is CAN3 to OBDLink MX+ On Pins 6 and 14 and I’m getting garbage values in tes-LAX. more experimentation needed :( I’ll use my android tablet instead to try scan-my-Tesla, since it sounds like the iOS app may be buggier.

    Vendor Scan My Tesla, a CANBUS reader for Android

    I unfortunately thought that documentation would be easy to find and ordered the self crimp cable from Maxwell. Now that I have the OBDLink MX+ and this cable on hand, figuring out the pinout turned out to be a bit of an ordeal. The pdf's Maxwell has are laughably bad. But all the information is...

    Anyone have experience with this rear seat cup holder console?

    Car didn’t come with any in the back. My friends didn’t have any to work with last trip. It’s a flat (curved) panel. I guess car is from before they added it (but post facelift). Pretty sure it doesn’t have a cup holder hidden inside even if the console has a power cord I could hide it under...

    75D battery degradation

    Just reporting since I've got some supercharger experience with it now. A 2016 AP1 S75D with 33k miles. I was at the charger in Littleton MA and starting from 5% it was pulling 120kW pretty much the whole time and was still charging north of 100kW when we left at 38%. This charge took only 13min...

    Vendor Scan My Tesla, a CANBUS reader for Android

    I found some useful information on the tes.lax website, it indicates that the OBDLink CX has faster data rate than the MX+? This does seem to contradict the impression that I had initially. I’ve ordered the Maxwell cable and it will take me probably at least a week to work through my Viofo...

    Vendor Scan My Tesla, a CANBUS reader for Android

    Thank you! I think I will order both a MX+ and canserver to maximize the possibilities. I do like to tinker with electronics so canserver is up my alley and I know that there are some related raspberry pi projects along these lines as well, but I also need a solution that is ready to go.

    Hi all. I know which cable to get (this one Tesla CAN Diagnostic Cable (Sept 2015 and up) – Self Crimp OBD-II – Maxwell Automotive Technologies) for my 2016 AP1 Model S (currently in SC for MCU2 upgrade), but what I'm currently struggling with is what is the correct OBD-II dongle to buy to use...

    Intrusion detection worth it? Plus other topics of discussion

    In the heat waves recently I noticed the cabin overheat apparently cracked open the passengerside rear window, I think (not 100% sure) which I was slightly surprised by as I expected it to just run the AC. are you saying that if I get intrusion module installed that the overheat protection will...

    Front and Rear Dashcam Set Up for Model S

    Hi there @5Wheeler , I'm setting up my AP1 model S with dashcams (would like to get at least front and back for now) and I'm very curious what the wiring situation is for your A119V3 cameras that you're using. I'm hoping to get a IRO dashcam in the front (for that OEM-look) and I think having...

    Question about FUSC and ownership change

    Thanks! I don’t think this car had FUSC and since I left the supercharger it is perma-showing the “add billing to use supercharging” so now my anxiety is all about my upcoming weekend trip, although I will be able at least to charge with 1kW at the Airbnb. just cuz Tesla says it may take days...

    Question about FUSC and ownership change

    I’m not concerned about paying for supercharging TBH. Still better than paying for gas.

    Question about FUSC and ownership change

    I’m at the supercharger now. Finally got my 75D! I’m adding the car to my account. I’m worried that I’ll lose the Highway Autopilot and/or the Premium Connectivity when it transfers to my account. Lol

    75D battery degradation

    Interesting. I haven't read about that either! If I understand what you're saying, chargergate/batterygate was introduced by Tesla in 2019 and then resolved by Tesla in late 2020?

    75D battery degradation

    Admittedly this is my first full day of serious research but it's been hard to find confirmation of this information. Is this behavior specific to the 75kWh batteries? I've been to the 85kWh chargegate threads. I'm curious if this is the same underlying behavior or not. I wouldn't be surprised...

    Inaccurate Range Stressed New Owner

    So there's a lot of consensus here that the fastest way to travel is to go fast, and discharge deep so that the state of charge is low, meaning that the supercharger charge rate will be at its highest. While this obviously makes sense, and I understand that we're in the MY forum here, is it...

    Question about FUSC and ownership change

    I bought a 2016 model S and this thread (and many others like it) are making me very nervous. It sounds like if I don't get the FUSC that I might be able to convince Tesla to enable it for me, but there seem to be multiple possible outcomes in which I won't be able to get it: I got it from a...
