    Brain Transplant Gives my Model S Higher Aspirations

    Your street has some very nice lane markings. My 2017 with the same upgrades feels new again! I even saw a toppled cone detected a few days ago. :) It made me irrationally happy. We’ll see what AP4 and MCU3 brings in the next 4 years. If future MCU and AP upgrades continue to be possible I know...

    MCU1 to MCU2 upgrade - technician skipped screen replacement

    Yes, I was initially charged for replaced damaged parts and labor. It took a few rounds of negotiations but eventually I ended up paying $2500+tax. I actually feel bad for the technicians at service centers. If the parts cost is almost $2500 and the labor can be several days with issues...

    MCU1 to MCU2 upgrade - technician skipped screen replacement

    I just checked my screen again in detail. I believe my MCU 2.0 upgrade came with a new screen. 1. No yellowing around border at all. 2. Screen has no grease dust or fingerprints. 3. It has that “new-screen” feel still where there is no oil or dust buildup from years of use. If I was paying...

    MCU1 to MCU2 upgrade - technician skipped screen replacement

    Actually it’s possible that the service did the UV treatment on my old screen without me knowing. I’ll check Around the screen border today.

    MCU1 to MCU2 upgrade - technician skipped screen replacement

    One of the main reasons I paid $2500 for MCU2 was to fix the yellowing screen I had with my MCU1. That and the MCU was dead.

    Going to purchase "new" 100D 2018 non-raven. Is this a mistake?

    Congrats! Good deal with $10k post tax savings. I have mixed feeling about raven too. I would love the suspension but the other features I would give up make it a harder sell. I have 2017 S90D with FSD and MCU2 upgrade and the pano roof, leather, ventilated seats, wood trim I like, more trunk...

    Missing security cert after MCU2 upgrade causes App problems

    Sneaky! I like it. ;)

    Instrument Cluster Marred during MCU1 -> MCU2 Upgrade [Resolved: Needed to Remove Screen Protector ]

    Honestly, I still can’t believe they are not removing the film before installing the shroud. I wonder how many people with the MCU2 upgrade end up driving around with a dim high glare and less crisp instrument cluster. Initially I was surprised how bad mine was at night and was so relieved when...

    Missing security cert after MCU2 upgrade causes App problems

    Yea I had the same thing. They can do it remotely. In 15 min you will have full unlock and drive control from the app.

    Would You Buy a New Model S Today?

    I totally feel you on this because my car has a sunroof the ventilated leather seats Alcântara headliner and wood trim that I actually like. I use my sunroof regularly. Ventilated seats help a bit and I prefer the leather. But the raven suspension is compelling.

    Would You Buy a New Model S Today?

    3.5 years in and recently had MCU2 and FSD computer put in. Car feels very fresh now. I’ll try to drive it until it falls apart which could be another 10 years.

    HW3 & MCU2 upgrade in Bay Area - anyone ?

    I decided not to keep my old MCU one because it was basically dead but I recognize the risk of personal data being lost because I have no way to wipe it since it was dead when I drove it in

    2020.20.12 Release Notes?

    What is your GPS issue? Are you seeing your car at home in the Tesla APP when you park at home? After my MCU2 upgrade my GPS is off enough when Parked at home to think it’s at the neighboring address.

    2020.20.12 Release Notes?

    Seems to be a quick bug fix since it was a very fast install.

    2020.20.12 Release Notes?

    I just got this installed. Will check if any changes to GPS location accuracy.

    Just getting 2020.20.5

    this was my experience as well for the first 3 years of ownership with MCU1. Tesla App location was flawless. This time it seems off more often. I’ll have the service center look at the antenna cable and maybe re-seating it in the MCU2 will resolve the issue. Other than that the update seems to...

    Just getting 2020.20.5

    After testing the update I can confirm that on freeways the GPS seems more accurate seems to keep me correctly positioned within each lane but I still have the drift problem in Windee roads in less open areas

    Just getting 2020.20.5

    I just got this on 2017 S90D with MCU2 and FSD upgrade. My GPS has been drifting since they MCU2 upgrade. Hope this resolves it!

    GPS is off position

    Ok good info thanks! I might try to access back of the MCU from the right side.
  20. D

    GPS is off position

    Just for fun I checked the back of the hatch. Are any of these GPS antenna connections? They sure do seem sharply bent. I guess they could be cellular and radio antennas?
  21. D

    GPS is off position

    @drklain thanks for your input. Do you know if it’s easy to access the GPS antenna Plug from the MCU without removing it.
  22. D

    GPS is off position

    Yes it’s off. Today it’s to the left of the road. I reached out to service. Too bad because the MCU2 upgrade has been great otherwise.
  23. D

    GPS is off position

    Driving around more today it’s definitely off by about 50-100ft to the right of the road. It seems to Drift off more when turning right and somewhat re centers back when turning left. It’s a bummer because AP3 FSD MCU2 upgrades are otherwise flawless.

    2015/AC won’t turn off/screen won’t turn on/can’t reboot via steering wheel!

    I had the same issue on a 2017 and yes it was a dead MCU1. Eventually I was able to get MCU2 upgrade with my ore paid FSD upgrade. Highly recommend it if possible to upgrade your MCU.

    App won't unlock doors....

    Talked to service and they were able to re-enable it remotely and after 15min I was able to unlock and open trunk.

    What's the likelihood we will see Speed Limit Sign recognition?

    Sorry meant to say AP2 to FSD. My GPS drift seems to Have re centered after a few drives. Thankfully it’s not slamming on the brakes when it thinks it’s suddenly jumped to a slower speed limit on the map.

    Late 2016 / Early 2017 S Owners: How Are Your Daytime Running Lights Holding Up?

    Jan 2017 Model S Build and had passenger entire light replaced due to DRL outage.

    App won't unlock doors....

    In having this same issue. I recently had our MCU 1.0 upgraded to MCU 2.0 with FSD. I’ll contact support tomorrow morning and ask about e-cert. Wish Tesla had all this figured out. :confused:

    How LONG must I wait for my MCU2 UPGRADE???

    It was eventually resolved and I only paid $2500+tax. The car works well now and is Nicky refreshed after 3 years of ownership after having pre paid for FSD.

    2020.16.2.1

    I have been testing out 2020.16.2.1 for the last few days. This is on a early 2017 Model S 90D with FSD upgraded and MCU2. Seems fairly stable in slower traffic and in sharper turns it slows as takes safely. I did notice a bit more ping ponging than my AP1 at 75-80MPH on long sweeping turns...

    What's the likelihood we will see Speed Limit Sign recognition?

    This was AP1 and MCU1 to AP3 and MCU2

    What's the likelihood we will see Speed Limit Sign recognition?

    Also with GPS Drift (I’m experiencing now) you could be safely driving at 70mph only to pass by a road and have your speed limit shift to 35mph and AP slam on the breaks.

    GPS is off position

    I’m having that intermittent fandom breaking during AP after MCU 2.0 upgrade. I think my GPS is off too which reads the wrong speed limit when I’m driving by other roads.

    How LONG must I wait for my MCU2 UPGRADE???

    Thanks! :D I did pay for it $2500+ tax. No free MCU2.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I had FSD pre purchased and still had to push the service team over about a month to schedule my MCU2 + FSD upgrade. It may have helped that my MCU1 was completely dead and I was not going to allow them to rip apart the dash twice to replace MC1 only to have to do it for FSD later. After the...

    MCU failed after 36k miles

    Like Croman, I had the same issue. 33.5k mikes MCU1 died. I had FSD pre paid for so I was able to pay for MCU2 upgrade and got FSD upgraded while they did MCU. I would have not upgraded MCU if mine was not dead.
  37. D

    What's the likelihood we will see Speed Limit Sign recognition?

    I’m having the exact same experience. Random speed limit changes without reading signs. Driving down a 45 and suddenly thinks it’s 25. I will have to disable traffic light control too. Basically makes AP useless if you have to touch the accelerator for every green intersection.

    Honolulu SC just completed my MCU2 Upgrade

    Finally got the car back after this upgrade. Figured I would let this thread know it’s all working well after several rounds of broken dash and trim parts at the service center. Fast MCU 2.0 is more exciting to me than FSD for now. ;) @Akikiki I noticed in your pics you may also have the IC...

    MCU2 worth it?

    $2500 is steep but they replace the MCU and IC and while the FSD features are not really that much more usefully with stop and light confirmation the speed of MCU 2 is worth it alone.
  40. D

    How LONG must I wait for my MCU2 UPGRADE???

    Ok I got to take a test drive today with all the FSD features enabled. It worked fairly well but the stop sign and light confirmation is more work than worth it. Another thing that I noticed was my IC had a screen protector film they forgot to remove before putting all the trim back. It was...

    Instrument Cluster Marred during MCU1 -> MCU2 Upgrade [Resolved: Needed to Remove Screen Protector ]

    Ok so I got lucky and pushing up on the top middle of the rounded black plastic IC frame cover caught the edge of the screen protector and pulled down the middle and it came off fairly easily. Phew! It’s so glossy with no glare now!

    Instrument Cluster Marred during MCU1 -> MCU2 Upgrade [Resolved: Needed to Remove Screen Protector ]

    I just had my MC2 and FSD computer replaced. Looks like they forgot to remove the Instrument Cluster screen protector too. :( How did you get it off. I don’t want to go back to service.
  43. D

    How LONG must I wait for my MCU2 UPGRADE???

    Picked up the car. So far things look good. It was dark so I could not really look in detail. The MCU 2.0 is super snappy! I will need to try out FSD Computer after the maps update downloads and I can enable the stop light detection.
  44. D

    How LONG must I wait for my MCU2 UPGRADE???

    So after a few more rounds of invoices I finally got to sign the one for the $2500+tax for work completed. I’m picking up the car tonight from lockout service so hopefully things work out.
  45. D

    How LONG must I wait for my MCU2 UPGRADE???

    Another update. The car is ready for pickup! Excited to get it back. They sent me the invoice and immediately I was surprised and disappointed to see that 1. They are attempting to charge me $170 for the trim they broke and called me about (claiming full responsibility and that they will...

    How LONG must I wait for my MCU2 UPGRADE???

    Well car is still in the shop. Apparently the new MCU is not communicating with my car? Weird. Hopefully there is nothing wrong with the MCU since we are paying $2500 for the upgrade. They said FSD computer AP3.0 seems fine. I’m asking them to confirm they are upgrading the instrument cluster.

    How LONG must I wait for my MCU2 UPGRADE???

    Service advisor called me this morning. They completed the retrofit, however one of the wood trim pieces was damaged so they are trying to track down a replacement. We'll see how it works out... I'm not surprised something would be damaged during this type of retrofit. Hopefully they complete it...

    How LONG must I wait for my MCU2 UPGRADE???

    Got updated from Service Rep. My AP2 > AP3 + MCU1 to MCU2 upgrade is going to take longer than expected. They said that the service tech has to work with Tesla Engineers at headquarter because my current MCU1 is dead. I believe they need to sync some data from the existing MCU1 to the MCU2 for...

    How LONG must I wait for my MCU2 UPGRADE???

    Car is still in service. We are starting day two today. Hopefully they complete it by end of day but I told them not to rush since we are in lockdown any way.
