    Does Service Center perform any courtesy perks?

    Taking my Y in for service and wondering if they do things like top off windshield fluid, vacuum interior, wash the car, charge the battery? Any of those? I know for my old ice car they would do a lot of these as a courtesy.

    Winter preconditioning and max regenerative braking

    Is there a reason you charge at 11KW? My wall connector goes to 48KW, which is overkill for nightly charging. Should I maybe turn that down.

    Woke up this morning to find my rear windshield spontaneously shattered!

    At least I don’t think it was tinted (there was a prior owner). If it was, it would’ve at least held the pieces of glass together. Instead it was shattered to bits. Don’t really see why anyone would tint that, they’re pretty dark to begin with, right?

    Winter preconditioning and max regenerative braking

    That makes sense for everyday driving. But what do you recommend for a long trip where SOC has to be closer to 100% at departure?

    Woke up this morning to find my rear windshield spontaneously shattered!

    Nope, no tint. If I did have tint, would it still have shattered?

    Woke up this morning to find my rear windshield spontaneously shattered!

    No signs of vandalism. Sentry mode was on. I doubt it’s due to expansion-contraction, after all the Y is considered an off-road vehicle, so the glass should be able to handle all kinds of bending annd forces etc. After some research I found that it’s rare but not uncommon for tempered glass to...

    Spontaneous Window Shatter

    Similar happened to me, except entire rear liftgate window. Spontaneous explosion. It was cold, about 33-degrees F outside. Car was parked and I had the defrost on blast for about 15 minutes. Hope this is a one-off thing, and not due to living in cold regions. Some say it is ultimately the...

    Cold weather road trip glass shattered

    Same happened to me, except entire rear liftgate window. Spontaneous explosion. It was about 33-degrees F outside. Car was parked and I had the defrost on blast for about 15 minutes. Hope this is a one-off thing, as @android04 mentioned and not due to living in cold regions.

    Woke up this morning to find my rear windshield spontaneously shattered!

    Seems like it! But sentry mode would've caught that. The edge breakage is odd. I was thinking the ice around the edges expanded into the gaps and force the whole thing to explode.
  13. terraform

    Woke up this morning to find my rear windshield spontaneously shattered!

    Not sure when exactly it happened, some time between 11pm and 7am. It was 33-deg F outside and I had turned on the defrost at around 6:45am, where my Long range MY was parked. As you can see, there is ice from the previous days snow storm (not sure if it’s related to the breakage). You’ll also...

    Inflation Reduction Act - petition to make it fair

    This article brought my attention to that petition. The fact that a Jeep Wrangler with only 21 miles of range gets the $7500 tax rebate, meanwhile a Model Y with 300 miles of range, does not qualify.... it's absurd. Hopefully signing the petition will make an impact.

    Breaker Fuse Blew with Mobile Charger

    OK. This is why I came here! I'll have them switch that 50a breaker for a 30a one. After that, I should have no problem unplugging the dryer to charge my Tesla on that 14-30 outlet, correct? I still don't know why that 50a breaker blew to begin with, but luckily it did.

    Breaker Fuse Blew with Mobile Charger

    Good clarification -- I meant breaker, not fuse. I did put it in the OFF position, and then back to ON. And still there was no snap, not even any spring to it. So not only did it trip, but it's guts probably burned or broke somehow.

    Firmware update for Mobile Connector?

    Is there a way to check for a firmware update to the Mobile Connector? The reason I ask is because I had a charging incident where it blew a breaker after charging for a few hours. I know the Wall Connector gets updates, but have not seen anything for the mobile connector.

    Breaker Fuse Blew with Mobile Charger

    In the picture I had already tried putting the breaker back in the ON position. But it did not matter since it was blown—it had no snap to it, if you know what I mean.

    Breaker Fuse Blew with Mobile Charger

    Thank you for the help! Unfortunately my brother in law already replaced the breaker with a new 50A one. I guess he assumed that the original one was correct. Anyhow, do you think it should be fine with the 50A breaker, as long as someone does not try to plug in anything more powerful than that...

    Breaker Fuse Blew with Mobile Charger

    Oh I see. So you would say that the breaker looked like that before it was blown, and not “because” it was blown. Also, would it still be okay to replace it with a 50A and continue to use the dryer and on occasion to charge my Tesla with the 14-30?

    Breaker Fuse Blew with Mobile Charger

    Was charging my MY Long Range at my sisters house over the holidays. On the last day I used my mobile charger using the 14-30 adapter, and plugged into her dryer outlet. Everything seemed fine and it began charging right away. To be sure, i checked the app and it Har automatically adjusted the...

    Update to 2022.44.2 or wait for 2022.44.5 (holiday update)

    So, would I basically need to wait until FSDb is 2020.44.x (or higher), to get it? Then I just go into Settings and request FSD?
  24. terraform

    Update to 2022.44.2 or wait for 2022.44.5 (holiday update)

    FSDb would be nice too. Would it include the holiday update features?

    Update to 2022.44.2 or wait for 2022.44.5 (holiday update)

    Ah, makes sense. They replaced the pillar with the side camera. Also, I did get the holiday update, like 4 hours later.

    Update to 2022.44.2 or wait for 2022.44.5 (holiday update)

    I just installed the update and can confirm it is not the holiday update. It was in fact a re-install of my previous 2022.44.2. Not sure why I had to install that again!

    Tesla Referral Program

    Just curious, what number did you call? Is there like a general Tesla number or was it the number that you used for delivery?
  29. terraform

    Update to 2022.44.2 or wait for 2022.44.5 (holiday update)

    Yeah, I don't know why it would be the same version. It downloaded while I was at the Service center, and the release notes don't say much. Maybe you're right and what's shown as 44.2 is actually 44.2x, where x is "5". I think you would know if you had the holiday update which came out 3 days...

    Update to 2022.44.2 or wait for 2022.44.5 (holiday update)

    After a service visit, I got the notification to install 2022.44.2 (which is strange because it is the version I already have installed). Anyway, I am wondering if I should install this or wait for the 2022.44.5 holiday update? Meaning if I update it now, will it take longer before I receive the...

    Passenger window rolls down and up slightly when drivers door is shut.

    Oh I see. Yeah, now that you mention that. My Model Y does the same thing sometimes. I close the driver side door, and its window goes up (as it should). But then I can hear the window on the passenger side door go up as well, which does not seem normal. I do not think this happens every time.

    Passenger window rolls down and up slightly when drivers door is shut.

    Yes completely normal. This is not new, I used to have a 2001 BMW 3 series that did the same thing on its frameless windows.

    Winter preconditioning and max regenerative braking

    I live in Boston and lately I've been using Preconditioning and Scheduled Departure. However, I've noticed that my regen braking is still not 100% ready once I get in the car. I mean, I believe preconditioning helps a little bit--so instead of 8 dots, I will see 5 dots or something. Is this...

    DIY magnetic front license plate holder

    @Kairide @towndrunk this is meant for temporary placement of the plates, for example when parked in public so not to get a ticket while parked. As for stealing, is that a thing?

    @RoBoRaT thank you for the video, super helpful. I may give this a try. Do you think the front bumper would have to come off too? Or would I be able to reach back there to attach the magnets?

    DIY magnetic front license plate holder

    I was researching options for a temporary front plate holder. I came across the usual SnapPlate, QuickBandit, and OttoSteer. Pretty solid options, but none of these are cheap and they all require attaching a frame to the grill. I was thinking to implement a more elegant solution, using very...

    Rats...[question on preventing rodent damage in model 3]

    I live in an area where several neighbors have already had rodent damage (small animals like rats chewing wires / insulation). I am wondering if Sentry Mode can somehow be utilized to 1) Detect and better yet 2) Deter rodents, like rats and squirrels etc. Edit: I know Teslas are not the only...

    What would/will you pay for heated steering wheel?

    Aw man... thanks for this detail. I'm waiting to take delivery on a used Model Y I got from Tesla. It's VIN shows it as a 2021, but I later found out it was built circa October 2020. From the specs it looks like it does not have the heated steering wheel (see pic). I'm bummed because I didn't...

    Thank you for the answers. If I call and cancel… do you know if I get back the $500 deposit and $1000 shipping I paid upon ordering? After all I was confused about what the car had, with so little info on the order page.

    Ordered used 2021 Model Y but build date says late 2020?

    After ordering this Model Y, which was advertised as a 2021 (even the VIN says 2021) I realized it was actually assembled in 2020. And of the few pictures they provide on the website (before you actually receive the car) show what looks like the older center console. So I am worried it also will...
