    Tire repair kit on Tesla tires with sponge lining

    Hi. Does anyone know if a foam tire repair kit, such as the one sold by tesla, works on the low road noise tires with a sponge lining running around the inside? My model 3 was supplied with Michelin Pilot sport TO tires which have such a lining. I'm not sure tire foam would penetrate it and plug...

    Share Google maps location to model 3 not working from android

    Interesting again! I've done some more tests. There was a street address I "shared" which is ignored by the car, yet it will route to it if you input it directly :confused: If you share a house very close by on the same street, the car does route to it! Very strange. I have discovered that...

    Share Google maps location to model 3 not working from android

    Interesting. I have my phone set to restart overnight and it just worked now. I went and sat in the car to test it. It appears to depend on the location you are sharing. I tried cities, a couple of house addresses and things like shopping parks. If it "liked" a specific destination it would...

    Share Google maps location to model 3 not working from android

    This feature seems to have stopped working. It has only worked on a couple of occasions. I can wake the car, sit in it and do the "share". The tesla app says the destination has been shared with the car but nothing happens. The car doesn't route to the location nor does the location appear in...

    How I Recovered Half of my Battery's Lost Capacity

    Yes, I agree, at a high level I'm concluding I can do about 200 miles in my M3 LR in the cold (just above freezing) without preconditioning the battery starting at 90% and ending around 10%, using about 320 Wh/mi. I'm expecting this to increase in summer, particularly as the UK summers are...

    How I Recovered Half of my Battery's Lost Capacity

    Thanks for this, makes sense and I'll try this out soon. I give up trying to find out the exact full capacity of the battery as I read different things everywhere. Calculating the usable capacity using this method sounds like a more useful approach. I did try using the rated miles to try work...

    How I Recovered Half of my Battery's Lost Capacity

    I'm struggling a bit to get my head around all this :confused:. So to work out range, I'd have to charge the battery to 100% and look at how many rated miles that equates to on the battery meter. Let's say for ease of math, it says 400 miles. If I then drive 50 miles, say, but find the rated...

    How I Recovered Half of my Battery's Lost Capacity

    When you say to use the rated range, do you mean set the battery meter to show miles and work out the actual miles achieved per mile the meter reduces by? Also, I'm pretty sure the UK 2021 Model 3 has the 82 kWh battery from everything I read. The WLTP range did go from 348 miles on the old...

    Model 3 won't wake up from app OR in the car

    I certainly didn't have my foot on the brake when I held down the scroll wheels, so I just ignored that! Hopefully the car isn't prone to launching itself into a wall when rebooted :eek: Although I'm an ex-mainframe programmer and no Windows expert, this makes much more sense to me. When I...

    How I Recovered Half of my Battery's Lost Capacity

    I'm not sure about Wh/km. In the UK the long range AWD has a WLTP range of 360 miles. On an 82 kWh battery that would mean 228 Wh/mile. I only used 410 wh/mile to make the math easier for my example as 1% should be 820 Wh on a 82 kWh battery, and so you'd expect to get 2 miles per 1%...

    How I Recovered Half of my Battery's Lost Capacity

    Apologies if this is covered somewhere in the 22 pages of comments :confused: but given all the talk of battery calibration, how accurate is the percentage battery remaining and the wh/mile figures given in the trip counters? I've got a 2021 Model 3 which has a 82 kWh battery. As such, I'd...

    Model 3 won't wake up from app OR in the car

    The Tesla advisor responded with: "The screen going black is something which has happened to me before and can be quite worrying. In essence as the screen is very much like a standardised PC/Mac or tablet device it has a cache. Cache memory is a chip-based computer component that makes...

    Model 3 won't wake up from app OR in the car

    Yes, I agree about the reboots, I think I'll follow your lead on this one, cheers. It'll make me feel better if nothing else!

    Model 3 won't wake up from app OR in the car

    I've never owned a car which only has a 15" laptop screen to provide feedback and without which the car is undrivable (pedals and gear stalk dead and phone app was hanging). A better analogy is "have you never had to hold down the power button to hard reset your phone or Windows laptop?". The...

    Model 3 won't wake up from app OR in the car

    Cheers for this, I'm quite happy around computers etc but it is a bit offputting when the car is dead and undrivable. I don't like the idea that one day maybe I'll do the two finger salute and the Tesla logo won't appear on the screen!

    Model 3 won't wake up from app OR in the car

    I've not driven my model 3 for a couple of days but it has been plugged in the whole time. This morning the app was hanging with the "waking up..." message. I went to the car which did open with the bluetooth phone key but the screen would not wake up. I managed to reboot it by holding down the...

    Precondition car plugged in vs not plugged in

    I'm interested in maximising range. There's a rare round trip I will need to make which will be border line do-able without a charging stop. The quoted range for the 2021 UK model 3 is 360 miles. On a recent shorter trip in 40 degree F temps I calculated it out to be not much more than 200 miles...

    Precondition car plugged in vs not plugged in

    I've had my 2021 model 3 a couple of weeks now. So, purely from a range point of view, is it best to precondition the battery while plugged in for 30 minutes or so before going on a long trip? I'm guessing this means the car will use less energy heating the battery when driving as it's already...

    MASTER THREAD: Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, How to Maintain Battery Health

    Hi. So the trip readings don't include preheating etc, but if I'm driving with the heater or AC on, does the reported consumption include that or is it just the energy used to turn the wheels?

    Power use while plugged in but not charging

    Interesting stuff, thanks. Perhaps it depends whether the "feature" in use is powered by the 12v battery or the main battery. AC and heaters (I guess) would use the main battery (and so use wall power if plugged in) and the radio/display maybe the 12v battery. Perhaps when the car wants to...

    Power use while plugged in but not charging

    The tesla manual says "Whenever Model 3 is plugged in but not actively charging, it draws energy from the wall outlet instead of using energy stored in the Battery. For example, if you are sitting in Model 3 and using the touchscreen while parked and plugged in, Model 3 draws energy from the...

    Power use while plugged in but not charging

    I'm planning on getting a PodPoint 7kW charger in the UK for my Model 3 I get next week. Tesla recommend you leave the car plugged in all the time, even when not actively charging. I assume the charger will let the car draw even minimal amounts of power as it likes, even when not actively...

    Non-Tesla Charger Warranty issues

    Apologies if this is covered elsewhere, I couldn't find it mentioned. I would like to install a Tesla wall charger in Sheffield, but all this talk of additional electrical requirements in the UK and expense is off-putting. However, the Tesla dealer told me if I use any other home charger any...
