    Model S Auto Present Handles setting not saving...

    Hi. Sorry if already posted but anyone have issues with the latest update where the settings made to the “Vehicle” setting does not save, particularly, the auto present handles? On 2020.44.10 and no matter how many times I trigger the auto present handles to on, it’ll “Save” but the minute I...

    Do you have shudder on hard acceleration? AKA death rattle?

    Just took the car into the Fremont shop for this issue. 2018 Model S 100D - Dec 2018 Build (Non-Performance) First showed the SA/Technician a recorded video that produced the ratting noise. Then we went off for a test drive and right there on the spot, we were able to replicate the noise by...

    AC Noise - Loud!

    Is it an an A/C issue though? Can someone confirm? Or just "normal" and you just have to live with it? Mine sounds the same, at fan speed of 5 or higher. If I try set the climate control to cool down my car via app, before I leave work, I'll definitely hear the loud AC noise the minute I step...

    AC Noise - Loud!

    Bay Area has been a scorcher lately, with yesterday's temp over 100+ (at least, in the South Bay). Today's another scorcher as well and this is my first summer with the Model S. 2018 Dec Build Model S, 100D. The loud AC noise was startling. It almost didn't sound normal but from reviewing this...

    Powder coat wheels black, gunmetal or....?

    Yeah, haven't had time to pick some up. Though, I don't mind the look right now but eventually, I'll get some black lug nut covers.

    Software Update 2019.12.x

    Not sure if someone has reported this but I've been experiencing the screens just lagging and freezing up on me to the point where it'll turn off and reboot itself, as I'm driving. It won't reboot until after it's been frozen for a couple minutes . Car still drives but nothing is operable...

    Model S Wake up Problems

    It's happened to me twice, in the morning heading to work, in the last two days. On Monday AM, I went out to my car, doors unlock, and I was pretty much sitting in the dark. Both screens were off and I wasn't sure what as happening. Had to eventually do a reset and the screens finally booted...

    Software Update 2019.12.x

    Same. I got this update last night.

    Software Update 2019.8.x

    In a way you're still confirming lane change, just a different way because it's not going to change lane until you have your hands on wheel, which you should anyways. I don't know how sensitive your steering wheel is against touch but even with hands on the wheel, it'll ask me to apply light...

    Software Update 2019.8.x

    Thanks. Appreciate the insight. Yeah, there were times where it'll turn on the blinker, chime, vibrate the wheels, but won't change lane. It'll just keep going straight with blinkers on. I'm like, wtf? Lol, then I look at the screen and realized that "Apply light pressure.." message is on the...
  13. J

    Software Update 2019.8.x

    I've noticed with the no-confirmation lane change on NOA, almost all the lane changes, simultaneously, prompts the "apply light pressure to steering wheel" before the vehicle will change lane. I would have to apply pressure, and then the car will change lane. Will play with it again later when...

    Best USB stick for Dashcam?

    Thanks. Glad this is a problem specific to my vehicle. Hopefully they can come out with a fix. It worked at first, but then the green started showing up on the left repeater recently.

    Best USB stick for Dashcam?

    Anyone have any issues with video distortion? I'm noticing left repeater videos are distorted and are green for the button half of the videos. Front and right repeater seem fine. Not sure if it's related to USB?

    Software Update 2019.8.x

    Just got an update. Installing now. I'm guessing it's 2019.8.5. We shall see.

    Trade in process / inspection?

    No inspection here as well. Just handed off the keys and that was it. They didn't even check or asked where it was parked.

    My theory why the S/X will never get sentry mode

    Same with mine. It's pretty sensitive . There a lot of saved clips on the USB drive, which meant that Sentry mode was activated but there's a whole lot of nothing. Some of the video, particularly from the side camera were distorted and half of the video is green but it did a system reset and...

    Sentry mode first impressions

    Any idea if Sentry mode would record using the rear camera in the bear future? Would be nice. Noticed some scratches, paint chips and small faint dent on the bumper. Argh. Wondering if someone backed into it but didn't have Sentry mode as I probably could have checked the side cameras. Also...

    no sentry mode

    Received 2019.8.3 overnight and installed. Sentry Mode is included and noticed the app controls has a Sentry Mode on/off toggle now. 2018 MS AP2.5 Dec18

    Poll: "Systems are powering up" error message

    Same. I could turn off the car, leave to go run inside the house for a quick minute, come out, and I'll still get that message when I try to boot up the car.

    Powercoated slipsteams on pearl white

    Anyone here have their stock OEM silver slipstreams powder coated by any chance? If so, could you share photos? Specifically look for photos on white MS. Debating on either power-coating my stock silver slipstreams either Matte Black or Satin Black with white painted calipers.

    Poll: "Systems are powering up" error message

    This + backup camera going black/white screen are my two biggest complaints so far on the 18 Dec build MS. I haven't had a chance to take it in for Service Yet.

    How long does it take to receive HOV decal in CA?

    Ok, so DMV called me back. So, application mailed January 25th, and my payment was posted on March 16th. They said I should be receiving the decals very soon. They also did say they have 45-60 days backlog.
  25. J

    How long does it take to receive HOV decal in CA?

    They are experiencing about a 1.5 month delay. When did you mail in your application? Have they cashed your check yet? I mailed mine in January 25th via USPS regular mail, untraceable. I would guess they received it on the January 28th but there's no way to tell. I sent a money order i/o check...

    Price increases 3/18. Will FSD option go up as well?

    No idea. I purchased it so it no longer shows up on my account page.
  27. J

    Price increases 3/18. Will FSD option go up as well?

    No, they didn't. Elon tweeted price increase delayed to Wed. Go figure.

    EAP / FSD after delivery price as of 3/19/19

    Interesting that it is still showing up as $2k on many people's account (those with EAP). ...Yeah, I took the bite and purchased the $2k FSD last night.
  29. J

    Price increases 3/18. Will FSD option go up as well?

    Believe midnight it'll go back up. Just purchased the $2k FSD upgrade myself about 5 minutes ago.

    The Great HOV Sticker Hack (making your HOV stickers removable)

    Can you remove and reapply more than once or is this more of a remove when expire and that's it? Should be getting my HOV stickers soon and like Jeff, trying to strategize a way to be a key to apply and remove as needed. The purple stickers, or anycolor for that matter, look horrendous on any...

    Software Update 2019.8.x

    Thanks for the sharing the video. The Blind Spot seems different for the S. Mine shows "Blind Spot Collision Warning Chime" whereas the 3 just shows "Blind Spot Warning Chime." Not sure if both are the same. The additional info (I) just describes that sound will chime when a potential collision...

    Software Update 2019.8.x

    How does it work, exactly? Mine is on but I almost never hear any chime? Does it only work with Auto Pilot and with a turn signal on, if a car is in a blindspot, you get a chime? I was under the impression the chime only occur with a possible collision is detected, not so much a car is in a...

    Vendor Tesla Model S Flow Forged Wheels - Model TSS Available in 19" & 20"

    Ah got it, thanks for the feedback, appreciate it.
  34. J

    Vendor Tesla Model S Flow Forged Wheels - Model TSS Available in 19" & 20"

    Right, that's why I'm asking. Have heard SC refusing to service a vehicle due to aftermarket wheels so I was just curious, that's all.
  35. J

    Software Update 2019.5.x

    Yeah, agreed. I'll play around with it on my way home and report back.
  36. J

    Software Update 2019.5.x

    Ah, got it then yes, there wasn't really a way prior to the update.
  37. J

    Software Update 2019.5.x

    Interesting. That's what I was hoping but I don't get a chime. The blind spot chime setting indicates it'll only chime in a near collision. I recall using my signal the other day with a car in my blindspot but it never chimed. I'll test it again later on my way home.
  38. J

    Software Update 2019.5.x

    Actually, on the new update, whenever a lane change is suggested, you can deny/suspend by tapping on the screen where indicated. I noticed this when on AP the other day after I had updated my software. No need to turn or lift the stalk in anyway.

    Vendor Tesla Model S Flow Forged Wheels - Model TSS Available in 19" & 20"

    @Tsportline Tempted but am concerned about aftwrmafter wheels and Service Centers. Any issues with SC saying no to service due to aftermarket wheels?
  40. J

    Software Update 2019.5.x

    Is the blindspots warning loud? Seems like you have to be in a near collision for the chime to go off. A bit risky to test.
  41. J

    Software Update 2019.5.x

    There's no setting. When you're on AP, and the vehicle suggest a lane change, you'll see on the screen in blue to "Tap here to delay..." or something like that. I noticed this change recently after the update .

    “Systems Are Powering Up. Press Brake When This Message Clears

    Man, I've been getting this message almost every time I get into the car now. Argh....
  43. J

    Software Update 2019.5.x

    Yeah, I've been experiencing the camera blank screen issue more and more lately. Both the blank screen and the "System are powering up..." message are two that I find rather annoying.
  44. J

    Software Update 2019.5.x

    18 Dec MS and just installed 2019.5.15. Mine, too, is showing my S in Palo Alto. Haven't gone out to the car to see the release notes yet though.

    Still waiting for price cut on AP/FSD

    Debating if I should pull the trigger as well. My Tesla page shows $2k now (it was showing $3k yesterday).

    So frustrated with the HEAT in my model S

    Bumping this topic. I'm experiencing the same issue as OP but I'm noticing it more and more lately. When I set to High, it blows all-out to produce as much warmth as possible, as you mention, but when you set the temperature down to a few degrees lower, it automatically produces cooler air...

    So frustrated with the HEAT in my model S

    Yeah, I experience the same on my Dec 18 MS build. Thought it was just me, but I haven't brought it up to SC yet. A few degrees down from "High" will result immediately with cold air. There's no gradual change from Hot to warm to cooler, to cold. It's just completely cold air in the 70s...
  48. J

    Software Update 2019.4.x

    From what I understand, the blind spot chime isn't working at the moment.

    “Systems Are Powering Up. Press Brake When This Message Clears

    Yeah, I keep getting this message as well, even after I just had put my car in park, ran in to do a quick errand, come back out, and I'm sitting there, waiting for the message to clear.This happened just now. 18 MS Dec 18 build. I'll bring this up to SC on my next appointment.

    Center Console Upgrade!

    I installed the stock Tesla docking kit for USB-C just now. It's Ok. The guides seem to only work for iPhone and not for any other phones as I have the USB Type C dock for my OnePlus 6T phone and the guides do not work. Plus, can't seem to get the phone to charge with a case one.
