    Poll: Will hands free driving be a big win for Tesla?

    I live on Ohio and have had FSD Beta since the first week of Novembr 2021... I used it to drive 95% or more of all my driving. It drives roundabouts better than the vast majority of adults that I know. My biggest issue is that it at times misses a turn a must reroute...

    Poll: Will hands free driving be a big win for Tesla?

    I truly believe that we would already have hands free if it was not for idiots showing off and doing stunts that they should not have been doimg... I have driven almost every car out there with self-driving and nothing begins to compare to what my FSD Beta can accomplish... My car executes...

    How can I see how many miles I have driven on FSD vs total driving

    I am also interested in this because of Elon's announcement to eliminate the steering wheel nag for those ith more than 10,000. I really believe that I have in access of 10,000 miles, but I would love to know for sure... I received FSD Beta the first week of November 2021, 14 months ago and I...

    2021 heated steering wheel Discussion thread

    If the harness is there, then it would not be a problem. I would not make my own or modify the existing harness... If the harness is there I am will to bet (figuratively) that the Tesla SC would hook it up or allow you to pay to add the feature...

    2021 heated steering wheel Discussion thread

    The issue I have with doing that is this, everything and I literally mean everything in the Tesla is interconnected. Tire, wheels, suspension parts etc... use what you wish, but the way in which everything electrical is tied together attaching anything to the system could have a cause and...

    Has anyone used a Tire of a different size on their Tesla Model Y

    I am thinking of going with the 245/50-R19 it is 1/2 in. 4% narrower with a 1.9 in. 2.1% increase in circumference. I really would like a 245/55-R19 it is 1/2 in. 4% narrower with a 5 in. 5.7% increase in circumference, but that tire is not available in a 245/55-R19....

    uGreen USB C to lightning melted and fused itself to the USB C center console port

    When this happens it is absolutely an issue with the cable. Some of these devices are pulling 45 watts. At 45 watts a small defect in a cable will cause this issue. But it can happen with any device and almost any current draw.

    can pre 2021 model SR+ steering wheel be retrofitted to allow heated steering wheel?

    uGreen USB C to lightning melted and fused itself to the USB C center console port

    I would guess that you havea cable that has a bad conne connection. When charging you are pulling more current through the connector than the connection can handle which wod cause theover heating and melting.A bad connection will result in a high resistance at that location. The high resistance...

    2021 heated steering wheel Discussion thread

    Before you EVER tie anything into the Teslas battery or computer check to see if the Service Center can add the option or changes that you want. I know that you can replace the old center console with the new one and the Service Center will reprogram the Keycard reader. A year a half ago I had...

    Has anyone used a Tire of a different size on their Tesla Model Y

    I am considering a 245/55R19 - It is 0.4" narrower, is 1.6" taller. The Circumference increases by 5" or 5.7%. The taller sidewalls might soften the ride and increase in circumference means that I would travel further per revolution and might help to overcome range loss due to the stickiness of...

    Bought Tesla Model Y from Inventory

    I have had FSD beta and driven GM Supercruise and everything that is even close and my FSD beta far exceeds their capabilities.

    Has anyone used a Tire of a different size on their Tesla Model Y

    My car used 255/45 R19 from the factory. I am thinking about the CrossClimate2s in 265/50 R19 110V XL BSW. The 5% increase in circumference show in theory help with the approx. 5% loss in range. Has anyone out there done something similar???

    Model S Aftermarket CV Axles - Success!

    Similar to other forms of warranty, a powertrain warranty does not encompass parts that are prone to wear and tear or degradation with time. These elements include the battery, clutch, wheel bearings, CV joints, and certain drive belts and fluids...

    1 week review (M3LR).

    My Model Y has no issue with passing a Semi in the next lane. It will also not drop out of Adaptive Cruise on a corner unless you put to much friction on the steering wheel. Let the wheel glide through your hands and drop not put a firm grip on the wheel especially if you have larger arms...

    Kicked out of the FSD Beta! (Long Post)

    I know that being kicked out of FSD Beta to where it will not re engage during the drive will kick you out. But I also know of individuals who have been warned with the inattentive on screen warning have been kicked out for FSD without any Autopilot Lockouts. "Hello, You are receiving this...

    Precondition car plugged in vs not plugged in

    I had a long talk last your with a few of the guys in the service center. They explained that Lithium Ion Batteries do not like to operate at low temperatures and that operating them when they are cold puts a strain on them. Read this: How To Store Lithium-Ion Batteries During The Winter -...

    Precondition car plugged in vs not plugged in

    You get X number of Chargers to a Lithium Ion Battery. Anything that puts an additional load on the battery means that it will requires more charge cycles which in turn shortens the battery life.

    Precondition car plugged in vs not plugged in

    Driving the car in cold weather without preconditioning can effect the battery life. When plugged in while preconditioning the power to does not come from the Battery at all and only comes from the wall connector. Since the battery does not need to be topped up, it creates less wear on the battery.

    Kicked out of the FSD Beta! (Long Post)

    It is three (3) Inattentive warnings within 10 miles and you are removed from FSD Beta. I believe that is is extremely sensitive. I average about 1 per day, but recently my wife kept asking questions during a drive, looked down briefly and bam a second warning close together. The remainder of...

    Precondition car plugged in vs not plugged in

    It depends on your charge state and the distance driving. Preconditioning the battery regardless of the temperature will ensure that you you burn the lowest Wh/mile and have a longer range. The Snowflake means the battery is really cold, like brrrr... Preconditioning also helps the life of the...

    Can we manually set the charging speed to a lower rate in a Tesla Wall Connector?

    As far as I know, the Charge Rate was put into the App, because when you use a non-Tesla destination charger you need to be able adjust the charge rate seeing that the car cannot talk to a non-Tesla Wall Connector...

    Tesla App reducing charging current by itself?

    Absolutely, I believe that the car will reduce the Amperage if the voltage is low to prevent a current issue. Volts = Wattage divided by Amperage. If you have a Gen3 Wall Connector 240 volts = 11,500 watts/48 Amps or if the voltage drops to 230. 11,500 Watt/230 Volts = 50 Amps draw, But I...

    Tesla App reducing charging current by itself?

    Ok, yes, 6 AWG Romex is rated at 55 Amps and 6 AWG THHN in a conduit is Rated at 65 Amps. But I have seen a number of installations of individual using 6 AWG Romex on a 60 AMP breaker. By NEC when using a continuous load (A load that may extend beyond 3 hours, as with charging an electric car)...

    Tesla App reducing charging current by itself?

    I will highly disagree with your thoughts, in the US 5% is considered out of spec, please see NEC 210.19(A)(1) below... NEC 210.19(A)(1) Informational Note No. 4 limits the voltage drop at the furthest outlet of a load to 3% of the applied voltage. This allows 2% drop in the feeder...

    Driving Your Tesla in the Snow

    Instead of a second set I would suggest looking into the new Michelin CrossClimate2 Tires. They have a 3 Peak Rating (which is the full snow tire rating), carry a 60,000 Miles Tread Life Warranty and can be used year round without damaging the tire. They are a true all-weather, all-season tire.

    Tesla App reducing charging current by itself?

    Properly torqued with the initial installation with Copper Wire you should never need to re-torque, aluminum is a totally different matter and I would never put aluminum wire in my house.

    Tesla App reducing charging current by itself?

    I think that the car is getting smarter and adjusts according to the voltage. But with a continuous charge your voltage drop is recommended to not exceed 3%. I think when the car sees a voltage drop of greater than a given percentage is is backing of of the current to lower the resistance in...

    Tesla App reducing charging current by itself?

    If your voltage is dropping from 208 volts to 190 volts you have an issue. Tesla recommend no greater than a 3% voltage drop which would be 202 volts. From 208 voltage to a 190 voltage is almost 8%. At 8% you are going to have conductors getting hot. The NEC recommends that the maximum combined...

    Hey, can you tell us how the CrossClimate2s effect range. I really like these tires for year round use, but have heard nothing as to how they effect on range. Also, remember that no matter what tires that you use, they will make no difference on ice.

    Tesla App reducing charging current by itself?

    I can tell you for a fact that I have seen many botched installations where the Conductors were undersized. Remember that most of the time a Continuous Load requires a wire one gauge larger than would normally be used. Since a 6 gauge wire is rated for only 55 Amps and a 48 Amp draw times 125%...

    Tesla App reducing charging current by itself?

    I am willing to bet that it is not the App. I have a Model Y and am running the Android App Version 4.3.0-766 and the Car is running Version 2021.36.8.8. My Voltage sometimes runs as high a 248 volts and it will be charging at 12Kw instead of 11Kw which it is rated and I am absolutely seeing no...
