    My son used Zebra , and my daughter used GetJerry to find the best rates where each of them live.

    what phone VPN works with Tesla app?

    Wireguard works great with the Tesla app, and everything else. I've got a Wireguard server at my house that I can tunnel into. For this I use a GLiNet GL-A1300. I also subscribe to AzireVPN which has Wireguard servers around the world. It's been one of the few ways I can break through the...

    Advice on repairing damage from minor fender-bender

    I know your post is several months old, but I have similar damage do to someone bumping me in a parking lot. I'm curious - with the $1400 quote - did that include them replacing the bent fender?

    "Charge port latch not engaged" only for scheduled charging

    We're seeing the same thing on my wife's 2019 M3 SR+. Her car is currently on 2022.40.4.1, and we first noticed it on 2022.40.4 about a week ago. We have her car scheduled to start charge at midnight, and the overnight lows have been in the mid-20's - mid-30's for the last few weeks. TeslaFi...

    Experiences with AAA towing?

    I've had AAA for over 25 years, most of that being a Premier member. I have myself, wife and 2 kids on the acct. Yes, we've had to wait an hour at times, because AAA farms out the tows - but if you're Premier , you get priority, and if you say you're 'not in a safe place' , you get more...

    MYLR insurance recommendation for Bay Area

    I'm not in the bay area, but if you check with an insurance broker, they should be able to shop rates for you amongst a bunch of different companies. I've been an AAA member for 25+years, and they do this. That's how I wound up with Travelers. Both of my kids (ages 24 & 22) live on their own...

    Gen 3 Wall Connector Delayed Charging?

    Since you don't know anyone with a wall connector, can you try a free Tesla (not J1772) destination charger, which is basically the same thing? Check Plugshare.com or the Plugshare app to find one near you.

    Uncomfortable Front Seat(s) / Thigh Bolster Mod

    Very cool. I had 20+ years and several black belts in different "Asian" martial arts before I found Systema. Wish I had found it sooner! My son & I practiced Systema for about 5 years, but I've been out of it for a few years as my "local" group disbanded. Thanks for the seat info too! :)

    Uncomfortable Front Seat(s) / Thigh Bolster Mod

    Good info in the video's - thanks. I was considering options to make my seats more comfortable. :) A non-Tesla question - are you the George Borrelli that teaches Systema? (found via google when I was looking for the youtube vids).

    Does Model Y trim still discolour from carwash?

    Can you share what the product is? I'd like to give it a try. Thanks!

    Does Model Y trim still discolour from carwash?

    I've got the issue with my Model-Y, and the WD-40 is temporary solution. It lasts a few weeks at best.

    Does Tesla make people impatient?

    I'm from NY. I've been that way ever since I started driving. :p With the Tesla's, at least now I know I can pass them with ease... :cool:

    I was going to suggest doing the same thing!! :)

    Teslas - Family /w Teenagers

    My kids are 22 and 24, and I'll be honest - If I had a Tesla when they were teens, I wouldn't have let them drive them. Heck, I wouldn't let them drive our Tesla's now. :) You're probably better off getting them safe beater cars, because they will damage them/wreck them. Both of my kids...

    Thanks for the heads-up. My new MY isn't set to be delivered for a few months, but I signed up for the checking account today!

    12v switched power for Radar Detector

    It's off unless you open one of the doors. You can also add a 12v switch to make sure it stays off when you want it to - which is what I did.

    NJ Windshield replacement (Geico): Need advice

    I just had my MYLR's windshield replaced last week (10/06) at Tesla in Richmond/Glen Allen, VA. Labor was $282.75. Here's a copy of the invoice as a reference. I checked with Safelite too, and they wanted $1705 for their "economy service".

    MYLR + Mobile Charger tripping breaker??

    You should be able to add a sub-panel, and add the EV charger and some other outlets to the sub-panel. And yes, the NEMA 14-50 outlet requires 2 slots (double breaker).

    Credit Unions with good rates that accept applicants anywhere within the US?

    Have you found any documentation which lets you know what state's they're approved to lend in? I looked online and couldn't find anything.
  28. skydve1

    MYLR + Mobile Charger tripping breaker??

    I was going to suggest that as well. They get weak over time. They're cheap and very easy to replace. You can also wire up a new outlet , using a new breaker and breaker slot - if one is available.

    How many windshields have you replaced on your Tesla?

    Mine cracked yesterday, and I have an appt next week at the local SC to get it replaced. Every now and then I'd hear a loud "pop" from the windshield while driving. Did anyone who had a stress crack ever experience that? Mien cracked from the top center edge of the windshield, down the...

    Model Y windshield replacement

    My windshield cracked yesterday, and I made an appt for next week at my local SC (Glen Allen/Richmond , VA). I was told they have a 'glass crew' in on Thursdays, so I have an appt next Thursday. As of now, they don't foresee any issues with inventory or labor to take care of it, so it might...

    Vendor Teslogic — Mobile Instrument Cluster for Tesla Model 3/Y

    I took a screen shot of mine today. When I enable Nerd mode, it opens up (4) new options. Debug window was the only thing I could turn on where I'd actually see something overlaying the other windows.

    FSD Beta 10.69

    1000% agree, and it used to be much better. I found an e-mail I sent to the Beta team on 10/28/2021, when I was on v10.3.1. I measured out where it was signaling for 'normal' roads (using google maps, and observing when the signal was initiated), and it was consistently about 600ft. It was...

    Mic for phone calls not working after car sleeps overnight - MYP 2022

    This happened to me when my car updated to and installed 2022.20.15 (FSD Beta 10.69.2). After I got another update to2022.20.17 (FSD Beta , and the problem persisted. My fix was to shutdown the car, and reboot several times. Eventually the voice commands and the issue with people...

    FSD Beta 10.69

    I had some time to kill, so I messed around with my Model Y today. I was able to get the mic working by doing multiple shutdowns and reboots. Eventually the mic started working consistently for voice commands, texts, and calls. So give that a try.

    FSD Beta 10.69

    Anyone else having a problem where your car's mic doesn't work since ? On both and , it doesn't hear any voice commands , I can't reply to texts with my voice, and when on the phone, nobody can hear me, but I can hear them. I was hoping that would have...

    FSD Beta 10.69

    I got FSD beta 69.2 early this morning. I was really bummed that you can't move the blind spot camera display. My wife's M3 (non FSD) got 2022.24.6 last week, and that was one of the best features. Hopefully it'll be in the next release...

    Sheared Lug Nut

    You need to find a thin wall impact socket or extractor if they can't get a regular one on there. When going thin wall, the impact socket will be stronger and more resistant to shattering as compared to a standard socket.

    Sheared Lug Nut

    Try to find a slightly smaller impact socket that you don't mind sacrificing to the cause, and hammer it onto the rounded off lug nut. (Use a Big F..kin Hammer!) The socket needs to be super tight and biting into the nut. If you can do that, you should be able to use an impact gun or a large...

    Vendor Teslogic — Mobile Instrument Cluster for Tesla Model 3/Y

    Programming key card

    Yes. You can use the same card for multiple vehicles. I've got a MY and my wife has a M3, and we added the keys to both cars, so we can each carry a physical card that works for either car. Also - nothing is being programmed into the keycard - the Tesla's are being 'trained' to recognize the...

    Sunshade Melting Fastrak Transponder Glue

    I bought one of these: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B08TQQ1319/ , and I put my EZ Pass in the "sunglass holder" on the back of the screen. The EZ Pass just sits in the holder, and it reads fine while going through tolls. No adhesive needed. The only thing I needed to do was add 1...

    No Software Updates for 3 Months!

    As an example - I received my last FSD beta update on 06/05/22. Since then, my wife's M3, which DOES NOT have FSD beta, has received 6 updates. It just makes the updates we get more special. :)

    Tesla 14-50, at the campground...ack

    The NEMA 14-50 adapter with the Tesla Mobile Connector (charger) will charge your car at 32amps. As someone else pointed out, the 14-50 is the one on the left.
