    Model 3 - Broken Power Window Switch Button

    OK - There's something going on. My front passenger switch broke then the passenger rear. I bought the switch cluster ($45). Could it be the heat? I have 90K miles, so I'm not rough on it.

    No can drive: "the electrical system is unable to support all features"

    You might have something there. My 3 is a 2018 (end of the year), and we're just coming up on its three-year birthday. I don't think it's the weather because I live in San Diego, where it never gets 🔥 or 🥶. Three years and 80,000 miles guess I can live with it.

    No can drive: "the electrical system is unable to support all features"

    Is it my imagination, or are we having a run of dead/dying batteries lately? Mine is slowly going away as well. At least the car has given me warnings.

    Supercharger - San Diego, CA - Scripps Poway Parkway (LIVE 9 Nov 2021, 12 V3 stalls)

    I have to agree with the east county folks. When I bought my car, they had a pin in El Cajon for a future Supercharger. Now they have removed the pin altogether.

    HELP ASAP!! [back at home, issue resolved]

    I have a 2018 M3P+ with 75K miles running on the original 12v battery. I'm starting to think that I need to get a new battery and sit it in the garage just for the inevitable.

    Phone Key and Key Card stopped working

    Installing the update caused a reboot of the computer. That's probably what fixed the issue. Go ahead and keep the appointment. If nothing else, you get to drive your car and meet the service personnel who will keep you on the road.

    Speed limit detect disaster

    This is my problem here in California. Of course, everybody is driving at 80 then I start to slow down to 55 until I can reset the speed. This can't be good for Tesla's reputation.

    Emergency Tyre Change need to change?

    I think you're safe as long as the tire (oops tyre) circumference is the same side to side.

    Question on TeslaCam - Making copies

    OK, this feels like a really dumb question, but... I see all these YT Vids where Tesla drivers make copies of video clips to hand off to cops. How are they doing that? Do they happen to have a laptop with them to copy the thumb drive? Is there a way I don't know to have the car copy it? When I...

    Disable rear seats seat belt warning

    Yes, when the warning comes up just click it and it'll be disabled (goes grey). I have dogs and have to do this often.

    2021 LR not getting 250 kw at V3?

    Hey TinTin, I'm over in Santee. I tried the CV supercharger when it first opened and had a hard time getting V3 juice out of it. The place was busy though and I just assumed someone was using my chargers twin.

    Help: I Can't Connect the Connector Under the Glove Box.

    Can someone verify that this connector just pulls apart? In the pictures, it looks like there's a locking tab that need to be released.

    Any Model 3 Performance Package Owners Switch from 20" Wheels to 19"?

    Anybody ever have a problem getting your 245's mounted up? I went to Discount and asked for 245's Pilot Sports and the sales guy went to the MGR to talk about it. The MGR came over and said they couldn't mount the 245's because they don't have the Load Carrying Capacity that the 235's have. I...

    Any Model 3 Performance Package Owners Switch from 20" Wheels to 19"?

    I have an M3P+. I changed from the 20's to 19's just to drop a few pounds. The ONLY thing I can complain about is the speedometer. No matter what tire size I pick, the error is still +5% on the speedo. I went with signature. Great help and they didn't complain as I he m-hawd about which set to get.

    Suspension differences - LR-AWD vs. Performance

    He used the wrong 'breaks' rather than 'brakes'. It's a noob mistake :)

    Wawanesa insurance experiences?

    I have Wawanesa. No complaints, good inexpensive insurance if you qualify. I have had a couple of bang-ups in other cars, and they have always come through. I have heard that they will drop you if your driving record isn't up to snuff.

    Suspension differences - LR-AWD vs. Performance

    Get the inexpensive car and then call up Mountain Pass Performance. You'll want the comfort kit. They come either adjustable or fixed. If you can wait, they usually have black Friday and Christmas deals. Almost forgot. Jump over to Signature Wheel and get a set of ultra-lightweight wheels in...

    Touchless carwash is safe right? Flooding! (sorry it's wordy)

    To answer your question - Yes, take it by a service center and ask the service writer about it. No appointment is needed. Just ask for his opinion. Make a decision then about checking it into the shop for a teardown. If I remember right, there's a straightforward way to calibrate the windows...

    How's about a REAL XM radio. I'm tired of steaming my radio stations and have them drop out because I lose my WiFi connection in the middle of nowhere.:mad: And don't tell me you don't have a place for the antenna, my Corvette puts the antenna in the rear bumper, and it works just fine. They...

    Total braking system failure?

    I'd go for the brake booster as well. With multiple system failures, I think it's pointing towards the 12V battery.

    Ohmmu 12V Battery Feedback

    That's why I'm going to wait until the stock battery dies before I switch over. So far the stock battery has lasted two years without a hitch. Of course, I live in San Diego where it never (until 2020) gets really hot or cold.

    Anyone out of warranty?

    Get the 3. Mine has 55,000 miles in two years and is running fine. The only time it has been back to Tesla was to get the computer upgraded to v3. I charge it up to 100% every night and run it from 100-200 miles a day. The battery degradation has been minimal. My range still says 306 miles...

    No way to get to Carlsbad Caverns?

    I'd like to go from El Paso to CC via 62. If I remember right it's a nice drive, but it's also 300 miles one way. I guess I could do Barstow, TX to CC. 97 miles one way, but looks sort of boring. Hey Elon, looks like we need a SC around Cornudas, TX. Or, at least by Whites City, NM...

    Quick ? on Auto Lane Change

    :) - When I said "Shake the wheel" I didn't mean I threw the car back and forth in the lane. Yeah about a half-inch is all that's needed and the passenger doesn't even know it happened. I also DID RTFM but was confused because the setting said "lane change - no confirmation" and I was having to...

    Quick ? on Auto Lane Change

    Thank you. I thought that was the way it should work but I keep seeing Youtube vids where it doesn't appear the driver is confirming the lane change. I just wanted to make sure. I guess I still have to stay awake :)

    Quick ? on Auto Lane Change

    I have an M3 with all the bells and whistles. I'm trying to turn on the auto lane change - the car tells me it wants to change lanes but first, it always asks to continue and I have to shake the wheel to acknowledge the lane change. Is that the way it's supposed to work or am I missing a...

    East San Diego Tire Dealer

    OK, I bought a set of Signature Wheels in 19x9. I thought I would mount up some P4s in 245/30/19s. Discount just refused to mount them because they are a different load range. Anybody in San Diego/Santee/El Cajon have a shop that can mount these that also knows Teslas?
