    Vendor eas | Hansshow Power Frunk/Trunk Sales & installation - Tesla Model Y

    Depends on the configuration of cells within the battery. More info on how to figure this out - Questions about the voltages of a lithium jump starter I purchased. As for state of charge of the Lead acid or Li Tesla/aftermarket batteries in the frunk - When the car is awake, I would expect the...

    Vendor eas | Hansshow Power Frunk/Trunk Sales & installation - Tesla Model Y

    There is a minimal draw on the battery by the electronics in the control box, so it can monitor for frunk open signals from the car (many times smaller than the power used when the struts are opening the lid). I have installed at least 100 kits directly connected to the 12v battery without...

    Vendor eas | Hansshow Power Frunk/Trunk Sales & installation - Tesla Model Y

    Cables you reference in the front bumper are not for "jumping" anything. They are not connected to the 12v battery. They are for powering the solenoids that latch the frunk, for popping the frunk, now, when the 12 battery is dead.

    Vendor eas | Hansshow Power Frunk/Trunk Sales & installation - Tesla Model Y

    The emergency release just releases the soft close motor from holding the lid closed should that be the case when needing to pop the lid with the contacts near the tow bar connection in the front bumper (I do believe Hansshow kits still pull the lid closed, then release the lid, not using power...

    Vendor eas | Hansshow Power Frunk/Trunk Sales & installation - Tesla Model Y

    An experienced installer can access the soft close motor that is usually what holds the frunk down when that is an issue (rarely) via the wheel well. Probably the method Tesla used, but $600 is an insane price for them to fix this from my experience.

    Vendor eas | Hansshow Power Frunk/Trunk Sales & installation - Tesla Model Y

    Maybe seeing this too late, but I am an installer of a number of Tesla aftermarket kits, including frunk kits on pre 2020 Tesla's, in the Washington D.C tri-state area.

    Max wattage of the rear cigarette plug?

    There is a DC - DC converter from the HV battery to 12v at somewhere near 200A draw. It is needed to charge the 12v battery, should be the first thought. It is exposed, to run to VC Right, and I expect VC Left also (though haven't pulled apart the dash to confirm the cable runs from one to the...

    External speaker retrofit to enable boombox on 2018 car?

    What can you confirm? I have heard many things from Tesla Mobile Service. Much of it true, some of completely false (in many cases countered by the cars manual!!). The only official word on a retrofit comes from Elon Musk,or on Tesla.com .

    External speaker retrofit to enable boombox on 2018 car?

    Thanks for the reply, but agree with the other poster above. "official" has to come from Tesla HQ, not a private reply to a single owner. Someone else posted on prior pages of this thread that Elon was "looking into it" (as it isn't definite, this is also not promising).

    External speaker retrofit to enable boombox on 2018 car?

    Sorry, while I see a single SC responding to an owner that it is possible, haven't seen Elon say so which would (I trust) overrule SC say so. Also don't see where $300 is mentioned...

    External speaker retrofit to enable boombox on 2018 car?

    @TomT - Any chance you can pull the threads you found this info on and supply to me via this thread/PM. I would be interested in giving this a try, know where the MCU is, but need to know which unused pins are eluded to above.

    External speaker retrofit to enable boombox on 2018 car?

    @Tranquil Rage - Can you share the wiring diagram you found this in. I searched the copy I have and didn't see it. Interested in figuring out where this connects to on the controller/ECU end.

    Model 3 EU Tow hitch part numbers

    Thanks MrHosping. I checked out epc.tesla.com with my U.S., based Tesla account login and part 1 (the hitch itself) is shown, but not numbered, nor with a part number in the table below. Might you be able to advise if the column to the right of part number lists any restrictions on sale for...

    Might anyone have the part numbers for the tow hitch Tesla installs in EU, and the part numbers for the wiring harness also?

    Model S: Hansshow Trunk Kick Sensor - Wiring

    Hansshow has recently changed their hookup method for the wires from the control box to the factory liftgate button/factory latch mechanism/factory trunk open button <rant> and is being even more unhelpful than usual in providing a simple answer to simple question of where 3 silly wires from...

    12v for accessory in April 2018 delivered Model 3

    I read elsewhere on the internet that the pictured, and held out by screw driver largest red wire in that bunch, can be tapped for 12v, however when I measure voltage with that red wire and the also pictured ground nut, or the grounding point next to the driver's seat under the trim, I get 2v...

    12v switched power available once vehicle detects authorized phone, fob, or keycard?

    I am aware of but from other videos I understand this pin only has 12v applied to it when Sentry mode is on, or when the car is "awake" (not sure if this means after detecting an authorized unlock device, or once a door handle has been opened). Unfortunately I won't the opportunity to test this...

    Aftermarket accessory install: Source of 12v power only when phone w/app / fob is detected in range

    Thanks for your reply Garlan Garner. I am familiar with Arduino, but haven't touched programming micro controllers since the PICAXE days ;) I have a friend who is well into them though, so should be able to get some help there. I presume that the "power relay connected to one of the outputs...

    Aftermarket accessory install: Source of 12v power only when phone w/app / fob is detected in range

    Hi M109Rider, Sorry, seems I wasn't clear enough. I am not reinventing the wheel. The testing I am doing is with one of those commercially available kick sensors that is designed (though it is all passive, so I use that word loosely) to (using ultrasonics) pop the trunk. I have it working (as in...

    Aftermarket accessory install: Source of 12v power only when phone w/app / fob is detected in range

    I am working on testing a kick sensor for the Model 3 for the frunk and realised the 'trapped person' button inside the frunk is constantly active, meaning tapping this button to pop the trunk with the kick sensor also allows opening the frunk while the car is locked. I am aware that there is...
