    Tesla model 3 awd lr only getting 286 miles of range at 100% charge

    Just a little update. After a few weeks of charging to 90% (instead of 80%) and running the battery down to <10%, the BMS now shows a max of 269 miles. Better than 255 but still pretty awful! I’m about to take a 600 mile road trip that we do a few times a year and this will definitely mean an...

    Tesla model 3 awd lr only getting 286 miles of range at 100% charge

    Wow - I have got you all beat at 255 on a P3D-! At this point, I’m hoping to loose a few more percent so I can get a new battery

    Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    Well, I hope this is not the case for you guys but my battery started degrading rapidly after 20,000 miles. Prior to that my degradation was only 3-4% and then within a span of a few months and 4000 miles I am looking at >10%. Hopefully it levels off here... Although it has dropped another 1...

    Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    Wow, I think I’m the worst off here. Looking at 10% battery degradation after 24,000 miles. P3D- with areo wheels. Charge every night at home to 80% usually. 250 @ 90% 279 @ 100% I’m thinking about contacting Tesla but I expect to get the standard “degradation is normal” response.

    To all the people complaining about not getting anything for buying FSD first

    MCU1 is different than AP1. We have an AP 2 car with MCU1

    To all the people complaining about not getting anything for buying FSD first

    HW3 computers ARE being rolled out. I have an MCU 1 car. It still gets software updates all the time despite being years old. No other car can hope for that. Not sure what that has to do with FSD?

    To all the people complaining about not getting anything for buying FSD first

    You got to drive a kick ass car for years and the opportunity to completely revolutionize it WITHOUT PURCHASING A BRAND NEW VEHICLE. Are we seriously so spoiled that we have forgotten that legacy automakers offer absolutely no upgrade paths for their vehicles?? That every model year brings...

    Disconnect from grid and power up system before interconnection?

    You’re absolutely right. I just wanted to test it a bit over the weekend. I’m shutting it all down tonight :)

    Disconnect from grid and power up system before interconnection?

    No, I disconnected the main breaker so there is no way for power to flow back into the meter. I have been running all day, 12 hours now, like this and the app treats it like a grid outage. It would probably be illegal to do this while hooked up to the grid before the interconnection is...

    Disconnect from grid and power up system before interconnection?

    They installed everything at the same time. I am waiting for the utility to come out and install the new smart meter and approve the interconnection. The city/county inspections are already completed.

    Disconnect from grid and power up system before interconnection?

    I actually went ahead and did this. I made sure the batteries were on, then disconnected the grid and finally powered up the inverter. Been running great all day!

    Disconnect from grid and power up system before interconnection?

    My utility is taking forever to approve my interconnection application and I am dying to test out my system (solar+pw). Is there any problem with disconnecting from the grid (turn off main breaker on meter) and powering up the system? I don’t see why there would be but perhaps my exuberance is...

    Here we go again... Model 3 wont power up

    I don't think I ever really posted a final update as I didn't want any posts to get back to those involved - this has been over a year now. Yes - the car had more issues. I started to get good at fixing it though, lol. I figured out that if I disconnected and reconnected the 12V battery I...

    Performance Upgrade Price Change!

    Neither. I wouldn't really call this an error on Tesla's part, they adjusted pricing based on demand. I don't believe they owed anyone anything but I think it was certainly the right business move to offer the refund. This happens all the time in the dealership model. Prices can change...

    Performance Upgrade Price Change!

    Same. Just got the email confirming refund is on the way for my P3D- Really amazing if you think about it. This would have no chance of happening with any other car company.

    Car shutting down - PULL OVER SAFELY on the freeway 3 days after delivery

    I’ve had expensive cars strand me before and never once has a dealer brought me a higher priced loaner on a flatbed to wherever I am! There were definitely inconveniences involved, but I always felt Tesla was making their absolute best effort to resolve the situation which made it much easier to...

    Car shutting down - PULL OVER SAFELY on the freeway 3 days after delivery

    I think these posts represent less than 1% of model 3 owners. I also think the percentage gets lower as production becomes more refined. I know that I have the first and only (so far) model 3 buyback in my state. It’s a great car and I never thought twice about ordering another (more expensive!)...

    Car shutting down - PULL OVER SAFELY on the freeway 3 days after delivery

    Good luck man, I had similar issues and they could never figure it out. They replaced the entire wiring harness, the CAN, the drive unit, the dc converter, basically the whole car! Anyway, they took great care of me and offered to buyback the car. I’m still driving a model S loaner while I...

    Can any P3D owners with aero wheels give us an idea of your wh/mi?

    I’ve seen at least 3-4 reports from people on this board.

    Can any P3D owners with aero wheels give us an idea of your wh/mi?

    You know, probably not your all time average with the launching and all. Maybe what you’re getting city/highway during efficient driving? Thanks!

    1 Week into Model 3 ownership and had to get Towed

    Really hope this doesn’t end up being a chronic issue for you like it was for me. I would get this error about every 500-1000 miles. Basically you have two choices to try and clear this and get the car to drive. 1) Put the car into tow mode, wait 30 seconds and then attempt to shift into...

    Almost stranded for a 3rd time in 8 weeks - got home thanks to a trick I saw here

    If you put a 100D and a M3LRD next to each other and said I could have either one regardless of price, I’d pick the 3 in a heartbeat. I think it’s a personal preference, I like smaller cars. But also, the handling, efficiency, cockpit and controls are all superior to me in the 3. It just feels...

    Hmm... Still not ready to comment on that. Only comment is that I have and continue to receive outstanding customer service from my SC and the service manager personally.

    My phone works perfectly 100% of the time, it is a.......

    My 8 works 99% of the time. The other 1% of the time the OS has killed the app and everything works again once I relaunch it. It’s an unpopular opinion but the phone key is one of my favorite features!

    New Autopilot Behavior on 2018.14.13

    Just got my model 3 back from service with 2018.14.13 and noticed something different on the highway (I think). Previously AP would recognize the shoulder as an additional lane on the highway and this time it did not, so I started paying closer attention to when the additional lanes where...

    Almost stranded for a 3rd time in 8 weeks - got home thanks to a trick I saw here

    I no longer have the P90D, I now am driving a 100D. The trick is to just keep breaking your car and eventually you will end up with a good loaner :cool: But don’t get too excited. Even the brand new 100D feels like a downgrade :p (other than the speed of course!)

    Almost stranded for a 3rd time in 8 weeks - got home thanks to a trick I saw here

    Did your car ever give you any more problems? Mine was sporadically throwing errors for a while and it looks like the entire CAN and everything connected to it will need to be replaced! lol o_O

    Almost stranded for a 3rd time in 8 weeks - got home thanks to a trick I saw here

    I won (lost?) the model 3 lemon lottery. If you are interested you can check out my post history. We have never had one problem with our model X so I guess this is the universe correcting itself.

    Almost stranded for a 3rd time in 8 weeks - got home thanks to a trick I saw here

    Yeah, we will see about that. I’m going to wait and see what the diagnosis is. Funny enough, all systems returned to normal after about an hour. Still, my SC just dropped off a 100D and trailered mine to the shop.

    Tesla Model 3 Down: Won't Power Up, and is Inaccessible

    I’ve only had the car back for a few days but so far so good. Their conclusion was that most likely a wiring harness connection was loose. They reseated all the relevant connections and it’s been okay so far.

    Tesla Model 3 Down: Won't Power Up, and is Inaccessible

    Please keep us updated. I’ve had 12V issues similar to you but the underlying cause was said to be missing CAN messages which caused the DC converter to disconnect and kill the 12V. I asked if it could be software related and they seemed to think no.

    Tesla Model 3 Down: Won't Power Up, and is Inaccessible

    Well, as I said in a previous post I could not open my frunk with jumper cables or a 9V when my 12V system was apparently dead.. After I got my car back and it was working fine, I was easily able to pop the frunk with the 9V method. Still doesn’t explain why my SC said they were able to access...

    Here we go again... Model 3 wont power up

    Thought I would post a final update (hopefully). No real issue could be found with the car - they are saying there may have been a loose connection in the wiring harness which caused errors in the CAN and a subsequent disconnection from the 12V system. Happy to have the car back but nervous...

    Tesla Model 3 Down: Won't Power Up, and is Inaccessible

    Interesting. This is exactly what happened to my car the first time it was in the shop. I hadn’t seen many people post about bad drive units. Hopefully it doesn’t turn out to be more common.

    Here we go again... Model 3 wont power up

    Yeah, well technically even though the 12V system failed the first time, they claim it was a malfunction of the drive unit that caused the 12V system to fail.... and the pyro fuse to blow... and the brake calipers to fail. More importantly, I really don't want to be stranded 300 miles away from...
