    I need to charge - Big Bear

    Big Bear won the supercharger vote last quarter, so there will be one in a year or so. :) I hope you make it down the hill okay. I was shocked when we were planning a trip up there and learned there wasn't a supercharger. So many Teslas in SoCal and such a popular destination. Good luck!

    Does car keep temp when idle?

    Tessie says it doesn’t, but I don’t know.

    Does car keep temp when idle?

    It did it again last night. I also noticed that the car doesn’t sleep when charging. Is that normal?

    2023 Model Y no USS discussion

    An early October delivery definitely had USS. They didn’t stop making them until mid October.

    Does car keep temp when idle?

    It's a 2023 MYLR Austin built in November 2022. I just installed 2023.2.10 last night and saw this this morning. I just checked Tessie and it's happened twice before, so it wasn't the update. I was on 2022.40.30 before. I only got Tessie a couple of weeks ago, so don't have a lot of data. This...

    Does car keep temp when idle?

    Hmm...as you can see in the picture, the outside temp was a constant 62, but the inside temp spiked twice and then cooled slowly, also to about 62 degrees. It spiked to 68 degrees, which is the temp set for the last driver, but the climate control system is off according to the app.

    It’s just plugged in overnight and charging.

    2023 Model Y no USS discussion

    Interesting. It’s not in the release notes and lots of people have that version, so I’m surprised we haven’t heard about before. I just updated to 23.2.10 and will check it out when I head out today.

    Does car keep temp when idle?

    Does the car keep the internal temp within some range when it is idle? This is a graph from Tessie showing the heater kicking on when the interior temp gets down to 61 and turning off when it hits 68. How is that controlled?

    2023 Model Y rattles in the back

    I have a Nov built Austin MYLR and had an annoying rattle from the back. They changed the seatbelt recoil and that fixed half of it. After ripping up most of the car they determined it was the clamps holding in the rear right quarter panel window. They replaced that and it was fixed. I still...

    J1172 extension cable?

    I found lots of J extension cables on Amazon, but my genius wife solved the problem by backing into the garage. Duh. We won’t get one just for traveling unless we start to find it being an actual issue.

    Time of Use/ Off peak charging Programs

    Our utilities are investor-owned, so they get a nice profit. Electricity prices are continuing to rise too which is why we installed solar last year. Now it’s almost free :)

    Time of Use/ Off peak charging Programs

    Scheduled charging seems to work fine, but I’ve only been using it for a few days. If you have a short window for off-peak charging and your charging sessions might run long, you can use the Tessie app to schedule start and stop times. It’s also nice if your off-peak times change on the...

    Time of Use/ Off peak charging Programs

    Super off-peak rates depend on your electricity provider and plan. I’m in San Diego on the SDGE TOU5 plan and super off-peak is 1/4-1/6 the cost of off-peak or on-peak, depending on the time of year. I pay about $0.13 per kWh at night, which I would consider dirt cheap compared to our standard...

    Time of Use/ Off peak charging Programs

    Can you download your energy use for the last year? If so, a bit of excel work can help you model what it would cost using the TOU rates. We can download ours as granular as 15 minute tranches.

    Time of Use/ Off peak charging Programs

    We have a TOU plan here in San Diego and it saved us a ton. We only use our AC a couple of weeks a year, but even then our smart thermostat helps ensure the house is cool before the peak rates start from 4pm-9pm. We set the dishwasher to run after midnight and try to do laundry before the peak...

    J1172 extension cable?

    I just installed a Tesla Wall Connector for my MYLR and moved my ChargePoint to the other side of the garage. It’s a stretch to reach the front charge port, but since we’ll probably replace the Leaf with a M3 in the next year or so, I wanted it to be conveniently located for the Tesla port on...

    Yes! Took me a few days to figure this out after I got the car, but it works fine.

    Glovebox vibration/rattle

    I had three rattles vibrations on my new LRMY. They fixed the first two, a bad seat belt recoil and insecure clamps on the rear left quarter panel window. Unfortunately, they couldn’t recreate the glovebox rattle/vibration. Of course, it happened all the home from the SC. I know it is the...

    Price Drops: Do you think Tesla should offer FSD for Q4 2022 buyers?

    Just signed the petition. As someone who took delivery on Nov 28, I missed out on everything. That said, I love the car and paid what I thought it was worth when I ordered so I’m happy. Still, given the hard sell Tesla was giving for people to take delivery in Q4 and the fact it doesn’t cost...

    Is there anyway to force ONLY off-peak charging?

    My ChargePoint charger delivers 32 amps and I think it is on an 80 amp circuit as the main panel shows two 40 amp breakers connected together. Can I run a Tesla Wall Charger on 40 amps? I know for max speed, it needs 50, but I'm wondering if I can split my existing (presumably 80 amp circuit)...

    Is there anyway to force ONLY off-peak charging?

    Honest question, why is this different from using a smart plug for any other purpose? Wouldn’t you have the same issue?

    Is there anyway to force ONLY off-peak charging?

    I use something like this now for my Leaf since it has been relegated to L1 charging since the MY arrived.

    Is there anyway to force ONLY off-peak charging?

    Sorry if I wasn’t clear. It doesn’t matter when I plug in the MY, it will only start charging (and always does) during super-off peak hours as determined by my charger and it stops when the super off-peak period ends.

    Is there anyway to force ONLY off-peak charging?

    Granted I’ve only had my MY for two months, but it has always charged using my ChargePoint charger. I don’t have sentry mode on at home.

    EVOffer & Hansshow auto frunk - do they report status properly? And reliability?

    I’ve been going back and forth on installing I my new MY since I got it in late November. I love the idea of it and think I would use the trunk more, but I keep reading about issues periodically. Anyone go with an EVO certified installer?

    Will you go to the Telsa store tomorrow after the price drop

    I took delivery of a LRMY on November 28, just about the worst possible time price wise, except I avoided the very top of the range since I had ordered so much earlier. I paid for what I thought the car was worth. Tesla is a company and prices go up and down. Sure, I’d love to have $10k back...

    So much Tesla hate now

    If he were driving a Honda, they wouldn’t have said so repeatedly. The make of the car is irrelevant. Maybe give a description once to help catch the guy, but to use it as a descriptor throughout is just sensationalism.

    So much Tesla hate now

    Lots of good reasons to be upset with Elon, but it is quite striking how the media narrative has shifted. I’ve noticed a real uptick in blatant anti-Tesla-ism. The following story is a good example. The basic story is certainly newsworthy to those of us living in SoCal, but the ridiculous...

    Update trajectory?

    New owner. With all the various software versions out there, I’m a little confused as to how the update cycles work. I’m on 44.30 and have been watching lots of updates to 44.30.5 and 44.25.3 on teslafi. Why would they update so many people to 25.3 when 25.5 is available? Seems odd when...

    [uk impact] Tesla Vision - Removal of UltraSonic Sensors

    It still won’t make FSD work, but it will cause all of the fanboys to do a 180 and say it is the only possible solution that makes sense.

    Tesla Solar/Powerwall APP for MAC?

    This one works with solar only too. Thanks for mentioning it as I’ve been looking for quite a while. Also has iPhone widgets which the Tesla app doesn’t offer as well as a watch app with complications. Requires you to log in with your Tesla credentials.

    FSD Beta 10.69

    Naive question: is there a difference between FSD and FSD beta? Is everyone using FSD on the beta or is there some ‘stable’ version that people get when they subscribe or choose to use it?

    Thanks for the advice! I would have said I was happy with the paint two days ago as the car is only 3 days old and didn’t have any issues, but then I noticed this when washing it yesterday. Looks like a fairly shallow chip right next to the T on the hood. I assume that’s something a professional...

    Tesla Solar/Powerwall APP for MAC?

    I don’t think so. I only have solar, but was also looking for something and couldn’t find anything. There are some different things you can do when you have a powerwall. E.g. I think you can connect via a web browser at any time. With just solar, you can only do it within a few minutes of...

    Apple Music "like" button

    Could be due to most songs being available in lossless now. I know when that feature first came out, you could delete your old versions and it would re-download the lossless version. Maybe you have the lossless version and Tesla is giving you the option to download the non-lossless version...

    Is there anyway to force ONLY off-peak charging?

    This is a totally silly omission on Tesla’s part. ChargePoint has been doing it correctly for five years with my Leaf (and now my MY). Just tell it your electric plan and it will charge when plugged in during the cheapest times or you can start it with the app or simply by telling Siri if you...

    Do I need to clay a new car before ceramic waxing?

    New LRMY, about a month old. Lives in the garage and I’ve used ONR Wash and Wax with a two bucket system each week since I’ve had it. Weather is mild here in San Diego. I’m thinking of using the Griot’s 3-1 ceramic wax. The instructions say to do a clay bar step after washing and before applying...

    Washing The Tesla Model Y

    I realize my post may not have been clear. I’m spraying the car with dilute ONR and then wiping with a dry microfiber cloth.

    Washing The Tesla Model Y

    So I have a spray bottle of the diluted ONR which I have been using for spot cleaning between weekend washes. I’ve been just spraying it on small areas that have some dirt and using a microfiber cloth to wipe it off. Then I got wondering if it is okay to use a dry microfiber cloth this way or if...
