    "Charge cable may not be plugged in correctly"

    same issue here. my car did not charge over night because of it. i initiated charging from the app now and its charging fine. not sure why it didn't start overnight, i did not touch the cable.

    What am I missing? Serious question.

    My VIN is 41XX, delivered in January, so I probably have the worst fit/finish, and the original seats. After 10,000 miles in the car, I can say you pretty much forget about everything negative. The longer you own it, the harder it will be to get into gas-cars. Pumping gas is super weird after...

    Rear Wheel Well Liner

    my liner looks like that too. vin 41XX i took it in for service for that back in January and they pressed it back in, and it popped out again on the way home. i gave up.

    17” wheels on Model 3 possible?

    i have 18" aeros inflated to 39 psi (per elon's tweet). i'd love 17" wheels and a suspension tuned for cruising. these roads in chicago are killing me. i noticed the 'luxury' trim mercedes e-class has 17" wheels and a comfort suspension. it would be great if tesla made a comfort version of their...

    Fan Noise

    the service center did a recording and sent it to engineering. they called and said they will build a retrofit fan part because a lot of people complain about it. that was a few months ago. i'm not sure if the newer VINs have this issue. hopefully once they complete their ramp up phase of...

    Fan Noise

    any word on your fan issue?
  7. NOCO24U

    Static/crackling on some random slacker songs.

    mine does it. if you stop the song and start it again it goes away in my car. i do this by clicking the left steering wheel button twice really fast. i'm getting so good at it that it's an instinct.

    Fan Noise

    i went on my account, emailed from there, and then marked it as "escalate to executive". they called me back and said many people were complaining about the fan and they will work on a part. if i were you, i'd do the same, and also tell your service manager to contact fremont to inquire. this...

    Noise cancelling technology?

    noise cancelling tech bothers my ears. i specifically bought a tesla to avoid it. when it works, it works, but it's never going to perfectly replicate and produce the anti-wave, which at times could result in rogue peaks that are too pure to sound "right". i'm sure i'm the odd man out here, so...

    Fan Noise

    has anyone with a newer VIN noticed excessive fan noise? still no word on the retrofit for my 41XX build.

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    it was solved for me with 2018.4.8. I'm on 2018.10.5, no issues.

    18" vs 19" wheels - ride quality

    i have the aero wheels (18") on my 3 (#41XX), there are no other 3's around that i can compare to. i did this test on a volvo s80 (17" vs. 18"), and mercedes e350 (17" vs. 18"). The extra 1" in those other cars made a noticeable difference in my opinion. I would always go for the smallest. it...

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    i have had nothing replaced, so i can confirm it was 2018.4.8 that fixed it. I'm on to 2018.4.9, apparently 4.10 is on the way, with heated rear seats (some rumor i read on facebook tesla forum)
  14. NOCO24U

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    i don't want to get too excited but the update 2018.4.8 seems to have fixed it. I haven't put the car through the all my tests yet, but so far so good!

    Fan Noise

    Good news! About 2 weeks ago, I wrote a formal complaint about the fan noise and asked for it to be reviewed by the exec team (through my tesla account). Today, Fremont contacted me and said they know about the issue as many people have complained about it, and that they are working on a new...

    Model 3 Drive Selector Replacment URGENT notice on my VIN

    i think sound spectrum is more important than decibels. a loud low frequency rumble is easier on the ears than a higher pitched wind noise, or worse a super high pitched beep. While the soundscape will sum to the same decibel level, the frequency of the sound itself is whats going to be...

    Model 3 Drive Selector Replacment URGENT notice on my VIN

    my S has the panoramic roof (glass sunroof), which i would have thought would create more wind noise than just the all glass roof.
  18. NOCO24U

    Model 3 Drive Selector Replacment URGENT notice on my VIN

    my model S, no wind noise. my model 3, lots of wind noise. not a ICE adjustment issue here. i agree about getting used to it though. the problem is switching between the S and the 3 makes me realize how loud the 3 is.
  19. NOCO24U

    Model 3 Drive Selector Replacment URGENT notice on my VIN

    +1 on the wind noise. seems to be a lot more than any other car i've been in.

    Fan Noise

    unfortunately in chicago the fan needs to be on all the time to heat the car. my plan is to see how mine compares to another model 3 when i can actually find another model 3 to test. my suspicion is that my fan is uniquely loud, because there is no way what i have in my car is acceptable. i will...

    For owners of the 3. How many miles do you currently have? (and how many problems?)

    those high frequencies get cut off with age. you probably have normal hearing. i have extra sensitive hearing in general + age working to my disadvantage to these tesla model 3 noises

    For owners of the 3. How many miles do you currently have? (and how many problems?)

    this is a new one for me: sometimes my car just starts whining... the whirring noise is normal after a charge, but the high pitched whine is really piercing. i can hear it in the house through the garage, which has a laundry room in between.
  23. NOCO24U

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    agreed. i built custom LED lights for my coral reef aquarium and i experimented a lot with the drivers to eliminate noise like this. if i could do that in my apartment, i would hope tesla engineers could do it better than me on a 56k car.

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    our S75 makes some strange noises too, so I was expecting that. the model 3 noises sound more like something is wrong.
  25. NOCO24U

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    at least you can hear it. glad it doesn't bother you. i can hear the beeping through normal stereo use.
  26. NOCO24U

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    yeah, who knows how many actually do it, and how many people it actually bothers. i'm hoping they can resolve it. it isn't just me though, i've had 5 people in my car that commented on the annoying beep without me prompting them. that's not going to work well for Tesla if it is not unique to my car.
  27. NOCO24U

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    i have not seen another model 3 yet. the service center told me they all do it and they're trying to correct it.

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    i made an updated video that hopefully is more concise. it includes the sound recording, spectraview graph, and spectraview graph vs. time. i am super bummed because i was going to take the Model 3 to florida, but now i am flying. i don't want to hurt my ears anymore and i wonder if this issue...

    Model 3 high pitch whine post charging

    Hi My Model 3 (VIN 4XXX) makes a high pitched whine after it finishes charging. I was not able to notice this sound while driving. I made a video with the sound and a SpectraView graph. Does anyone else's do this? Is this normal? (my car also makes the morse-code beeping that i started a thread...

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    to be completely honest, no. it's really distracting, and it aggravates my ears if that makes any sense. i am uncomfortable for a few hours after i drive the car and i worry about what it's actually doing to the fine structures of the ear. we're not meant to hear high pitched beeps like that...

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    it really depends on your individual hearing. typically younger people can hear it. it drives my girlfriend and i nuts (both 33), my mom can hear it but it doesn't bother her, and my dad can't hear it at all (parents are in their 60s). it may also depend on your computer speakers. everyone is...

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    yeah, 'fan noise' can induce the 'morse code beep', but if you shut off the fan, then toggle the lights from 'auto' to 'parking' you can isolate the morse code beep pretty well (in my car). tesla is on it. im thankful the SC tech could hear it and recorded it with his equipment.
  33. NOCO24U

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    the blower fan i mentioned is the HVAC blower on the heater/ac system that can be heard inside the car. the outside fan noise you're hearing sounds like its the battery fans or LED headlight fans. mine are on a lot as it manages the battery, i also leave my car plugged in at 65% charge since its...
  34. NOCO24U

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    in what way? mine does it all the time, whether the seat heater is on or off. were you able to isolate/reproduce it following the instructions in this video? do that and then try toggling the seat heater to see if it affects the sound: -turn the car on with the key card and press the brake...

    Cancelling my reservation

    it's worth the wait. maybe a good option is buy a used model S and trade it in when the 3 comes. treat it as a long term rental.

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    this is what my service invoice says: "Concern: Customer: states there is a high pitch whining sound inside of the vehicle when the headlights turn on. Corrections: Interior NVH General Diagnosis Diagnosed and created sound recording of the noise which was submitted to engineering for further...

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    i got a call from the SC just now. This is what I was told -the beeping is a known issue in the model 3 -it is almost all the Model 3's that do it -a lot of people are reporting it -tesla engineers are working on a fix -it will be resolved "pretty quickly" -once they have the fix they will call...

    For owners of the 3. How many miles do you currently have? (and how many problems?)

    mine does it all the time, but what i show in the video is how to isolate it and reproduce it. there are instructions in the description of the youtube vid. if yours does it, please call your SC and report it so we can get it fixed ASAP.

    For owners of the 3. How many miles do you currently have? (and how many problems?)

    274mi in the shop for the past 7 days, just got it back, for: -weird high pitch morse code beep (no fix yet, deal breaker for me if they can't): , and Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code' -loud HVAC blower fan noise and rattle (not fixable, not happy): Fan Noise -torn front...

    Fan Noise

    i got my car back from the SC (7 days total). they said my fan noise was normal, but man it is really loud and annoying. i would trade the car in if they improve the fan alone.

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    i got my car back, no fix. they reported to tesla. i would copy/paste exactly what they did but i am still waiting on the email from them that was supposed to come yesterday. i called fremont to ask for the papers and am still waiting. will post the exact details soon.

    Part recall for Model 3

    do you know the VIN? Model 3's built before Dec 25 are getting suspension replacements for being too stiff.
  47. NOCO24U

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    not yet... i am picking up the car tomorrow morning and will get more details then. hopefully i can get some kind of documentation showing what they reported to tesla. i'll update tomorrow.
  48. NOCO24U

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    they said they could reproduce it, there is no fix, and they reported to tesla engineers and will have to come back for repair when they have the fix.
  49. NOCO24U

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    just got a call back, it's there! they couldn't fix the beeping issue but they did report it to Tesla. what happens next?
  50. NOCO24U

    Model 3 annoying beeping sounds like 'morse code'

    probably so you don't honk the horn at the tech, or start up the climate system while they are doing diagnostics or whatever. who knows, but my app says "mobile access disabled"
