    Every drive now takes an hour longer :-(

    Dear Tesla Thanks for releasing games getting my family hooked on Fallout Shelter in the car. Because of this, getting to places takes longer in an EV. - soccer practice takes 2hrs now, 1 hour on the field 1hour playing FS - food runs used to take 15min, now they’re 1:15 I get police peeking...

    HANSSHOW Trunk Liftgate v3 install

    Im not sure how different the trunk lights can be, its only 2 wires. I took a photo of my rear light connector from Hanshow v3, see if this matches yours.

    HANSSHOW Trunk Liftgate v3 install

    There technically was never a v2, I assume Hanshow just leapfrogged to v3 because their competitor came out with a v2 of their lift gate. V1 and v3 are essentially the same however the wiring is different. I have both cables and V1 wiring was a bit harder to install and V1 didnt give you the...

    I think I already know the answer to this but does the Hanshow work with one powered strut?

    HANSSHOW Trunk Liftgate v3 install

    Hand show has been good to me, spent a good few weeks troubleshooting my install over FaceTime and even sent me a v1 cable for so I could diagnose my issue. I’ve been very satisfied with their support, I’d suggest you hit them up on WhatApp, you should have gotten an Aftersale WhatsApp contact...

    HANSSHOW Trunk Liftgate v3 install

    If you’re latch isn’t catching then the Power hook loop on the car side is not lined up correctly with latch on the trunk lid. I find it’s easiest to line up the latch by folding down the rear seats and close the trunk and watch where it lines up. Check out the electrified garage YT install...

    HANSSHOW Trunk Liftgate v3 install

    Yes, when the trunk I is open the touch screen AND the app flashes between Open and close (about once per second) when the touch screen is flashing open you can’t do anything, however once it flashes close you hit it and it closes the trunk.

    HOWTO: Remove the rear deck

    I did some videos while installing and the Hanshow v3 Tailgate a few weeks ago but I ran into a thread today that wanted to know how to access the rear deck...so kill 2 birds with one stone, here you go.

    Accessing third brake light...had an insect in it

    Here's a video that might help, it shows how to access the rear deck lid

    Accessing third brake light...had an insect in it

    wouldn't consider it "easy" to access the third brake light but It's doable if you're handy but it is a pain in the azz. The rear light is attached to the rear trunk deck and to remove the rear deck you'll have to remove the top side panels (the ones that cover the rear airbags) as well as the...

    HANSSHOW Trunk Liftgate v3 install

    Not yet @bondo, it was too cold in my area to tackle it this weekend. When the trunk is close I cant see the gap in the bumper but its still bugging the hell out of me and I wanna get it back to normal ASAP.

    HANSSHOW Trunk Liftgate v3 install

    ---let me know if you find a good video about this, cause I still have a gap. I saw a video this morning that says there are some snap hooks under the car has to be removed as well so maybe for me those tabs arent lined up which is why I have a gap....gotta figure that out this weekend.

    Lifting the 3

    Take your pucks with you...I've had a few nails on the 3, none of the shops I took it to had there own pucks or any idea how to patch under the foam, (which looks like this)..all they have to do is pull it away, patch under it and glue it back down.

    HANSSHOW Trunk Liftgate v3 install

    I watched every install video while I was waiting on the unit to arrive, they are all old and wrong...none of them showed you how to route the V3 wiring. I'll need to pull off the bumper again this weekend to adjust it so I'll take some videos. Basically the strut wire routes under the tail...

    HANSSHOW Trunk Liftgate v3 install

    Completed the install last night, it took me 10hrs (though the printed instructions were only 25 steps) to install mainly because there weren't any good videos or install guides. Hansshows documentation is lacking BIGTIME. The main headache of the install was to remove the panels from the car...

    Garage door opener alternatives

    Nexxt Garage door opener, I've been using this for about 2yrs now...works with wifi, has geofencing so it will open and close you're garage once you're car approaches you're driveway, similarly to how Tesla garage door does it. Has a phone app too so you can open garage door from anywhere. I use...

    Missing Sound Insulation?

    You know under the evaporator there is space/hole somewhere that allows the condensation from the evaporator to drain from the car. I honestly don't know where those vent holes are located but I do know once I blasted cleaning foam on the evaporator and ran the AC my car peed a little from those...

    Disappointed with Jeda

    I have the taptes gen 2 charger, I can’t say I love it. The rubber on the pad isn’t “sticky” enough so phone slides around when I turn and stop charging. I never had this problem with gen 1 jeda or nomad.... was considering jeda gen 2 charger but with hub issues, I dunno, questionable QA????

    Disappointed with Jeda

    I got my hub, weeks late but when it finally arrived it was broken. Left USB input port on jeda hub caused my car to disable the corresponding port on the car. I’m thinking it was some type of protection issues on our cars, if it detects something funky it just disables the port. Also the right...

    USB too slow for TeslaCam

    On 2019.32.2.2 and today I got this message. Ironically I was using my regular (fast) usb stick however the stick was getting full which I know decreases the weird performance of fat32, it’s good to see Tesla picking up on that

    Updated iPhone X to iOS 13 now doesn’t work as key [Update: go to Settings > Privacy > Bluetooth]

    I’ve been using iOS 13 (now 13.1) Public beta since early summer and my phone never stopped working as a key. Tesla app was updated to support iOS 13 months ago, maybe check if you’re running an old version of app.

    I'm amazed at what owners don't know

    I learn new stuff about this car from reading here, some of them are so nuanced that I wouldn't expect the average driver who doesn't sit on TMC all day like we do to know this stuff. There is a thread here that collected all types of little tips and I was amazed about how much I didn't...

    I just realized I haven't bought gas in SEVEN YEARS! Miss it, nah!

    I sold my positions in Oil/Gas stocks after I bought my 3, can't be saving the earth on one hand and enabling its destruction on the other :) I still look at gas prices for the LOLs

    Anyone else cancelling a Tesla 3 order - 2 year free charging!

    Wouldn't it be easier to just ask the manager at the SC for the promo? I know things are different depending on the part of the country you are but they SC here in NY has been very accommodating. When I took delivery in June 2018, they were giving out there limited edition model 3 - toy cars. My...

    Artax hits a Black Bear

    Teslacam has been pretty stabled for me for many months now, make sure you're using a fast USB3 stick and you should be ok. I've tried the USB > microSD converter things and I would get random oddities. If it makes a difference to anyone, this is the stick Im using...

    Check my car up there ^^^ I lowered with T-Sportsline springs its a 1" drop all the way around, the suspension is also much firmer so you feel bumps. I have never bottomed out and I can still slide the lip over a parking curb though admittedly now that its lowered I typically stay a few inches...

    Got the TapTes gen2 pad and while I want to love it my main problem is that under normal driving and tuns my phone (iPhone XS) keeps sliding around. turn left and it slides too far left and stop charging till I turn back right...this never happened with the Nomad I had before this...the rubber...

    I remember when...my 3 would open without me having to open the app on my iPhone

    Im on IOS 13b (beta) for the last few months on a iPhone 11xs. Initially after installing the beta I had a problem where I would have to restart the Tesla app to get into the car but sometime in July Tesla updated the app and its worked fantastic so far even on the iOS beta.

    V10 release notes

    I'm sure these early access features is just the fluff for early access...the full meat and potatoes of V10 will probably go out to everyone in time. This fluff alone does not warrant the version update nor are they playing who's got the bigger version number against Porsche (yet) so Im sure...

    Car needs service, “power reduced” alerts [Update: fixed, loose main ground connection]

    Haven't happened to me personally but one of the M3 owners I follow on youtube had this happened and he simply hard-rebooted the car (press and hold steering wheel nipples while pushing the brake pedal) and everything came back to life. Computers....o_O

    Just got 2019.24.4

    Haven't noticed the other stuff but its definitely more blurry...actually wouldn't say blurry I'd say more distorted. Looking at my shrubs used to be tack clear, now they're more distorted and have less detail. Whatever they did to the camera, I dont like it.

    OK who is this?

    If you're gonna juice up because you're completely dead at least have some respect for the man's lawn, secondly once you get enough juice to get to a super charger just leave and go do that. This is pure disrespect from an inconsiderate azzhole.

    AC odor removal and cleaning

    In my neck of the woods (Long Island, NY) , my SC is about 15 miles away and whenever I book an appointment they automatically fill it as a mobile appointment. In my 1+ year of owning the M3 I've never actually had to bring it in to the SC.
