    Has our MCU been hacked?

    Your original post said "after a few hours the problem was gone " referring to the gps. Regardless I still think your trying to tie together unrelated events.

    Has our MCU been hacked?

    I would hardly call these "failures" as they resolved themselves. Sounds like typical Tesla glitches to me regardless of the time frame.

    Has our MCU been hacked?

    Doutful, I've had all those things happen on my S's. The GPS one is common if the car loses satellite connection for a long time, it just happened to me when I parked in a parking garage in downtown San Francisco for three days.

    Tesla won't ship or mobile service winter tires???

    How did you order? Did you order just tires or tires and rims? The on-line order page is pretty clear it includes mounting at the service center. Mobile techs dont have the required tools to mount and balance tires. I would say you dont read any complaints because most of us dont buy tires...

    2014 Model S lurches left when accelerating, right when regen braking. Steering wheel 10-15 degrees off center to the right.

    The lurching is almost certainly coming from a rear toe arm. Either a bad bushing or an undertorqued bolt. I've had it happen twice on my '14 and both times it was an undertorqued inner toe arm bolt. This is the bolt used to adjust the toe and I have a feeling they dont always get it tight...

    Account hacked

    I use TeslaFi but currently they dont use the Tesla login credentials. Instead they have you login to your Tesla account and generate an encryption token that you enter to their system.

    Account hacked

    I'm an IT systems and network admin and always use minimum 10 character complex passwords and this is the first time I've ever had an account compromised. I guess I had my guard down not being aware Tesla offered MFA. It does seem like a database was compromised somewhere.

    Account hacked

    Yes, myself and two other people that I know of have had wall connectors ordered from their account without their knowledge. Mine was set to be delivered to an address in Georgia. My credit card company caught it and denied the charge and called me. I was able to cancel the charger and secure...

    2015 front head light went out, warning, went back on

    Yes, this is the failure mode of the lamp. It will go out, give the warning but will restart when the headlights are turned off and back on again. This cycle will become more frequent as the lamp ages and gets worse. Last I knew, Teslas policy was to replace the whole assembly for 1000 bucks...

    Computer failure, $3.5K fix?

    Model 3's combine the MCU and the FSD computer boards into one chassis. The reason those are so cheap and plentiful is that they contain the older HW2.5 FSD computer board in them so it wouldn't be a direct assembly swap (pretty sure all 3's had HW3 by 2019). Used MCU2/HW3 computers look like...

    Computer failure, $3.5K fix?

    I think you are operating under a series of assumptions that may not be valid. (a) Where did you hear Tesla is "highly regarded"? It's really not when talking about reliability. (B) all electronics have a failure rate and this one is very low, you are just unlucky here. (c) you are replacing an...

    I've used RoadWarrior in the past but now I just use Google My Maps. I believe Google will import directly from CSV but I do a little column cleanup and convert to Google Sheets before importing to Maps.

    A simple way to make everyone happy with super charging idle fees

    The system is not broken. As I posted in your other thread, in 9 years, 3 cars, 300k miles, over 2000 charging sessions at 1500 different superchargers, I have never been assesed an Idle fee.

    None of our existing tools does routing so I use the "lasso" tool in Tableau to export data from groups of unvisited sites to be able to import that into mapping/routing apps.

    SC Idle fee...??

    It's not unusual for cars of this age to not charge all the way to 100% even on level 2 connections. My '14 would only go to 96% until I did several <20% to full charges now it goes to 100 again for now. My '15 stops at 98%. It's the cars BMS doing this, not the supercharger. Also, as point...

    PPF.....Specifically the rockers

    I would highly recommend rocker panel ppf. I've seen cars with the paint completely worn off in front of the rear wheels. I have both mud flaps and ppf, the mud flaps didn't do much to reduce the material impacts. I did the ppf myself with this kit...

    Automatic wipers don't recognise spray

    Normal behavior. Tesla doesn't use a traditional rain sensor since introduction of AP2 instead they tried to use a forward facing camera with mixed results.

    AC Hot when supercharging?

    Had that happen on my 2015 85D. Service menu showed compressor overheat and overcurrent errors. Needed new compressor.

    Help with error codes

    Both of my S's of that vintage always show those three codes and HVAC works fine. In researching them it seems all cars of that age display those errors so probably not relevant to your issue.

    Supercharger - Portland, OR - N. Pavilion Ave. (LIVE Jul 2023, 8 V3 stalls)

    FYI everyone, the Tesla nav and app has the pin for this supercharger in the wrong place. The nav has it on the west end of the Home Depot parking lot when it's actually accross the street from the east side of the HD lot. Supercharge.info, Google and Plugshare all have it in the right place.

    Left headlight bulb and ballast replacement, hopefully not a wiring issue

    Had same with one of my headlamps on my '15 85D. Replaced lamp and all has been good since. It's recommended replacing both lamps at the same time. I didn't since the other side had just had the whole headlight assembly replaced due to a deer hit. The new lamp was noticeably brighter.

    Model y doesnt stop for pedestrian crossing road while driving forward , no chimes , nothing, no alert , AP not engaged . any suggestions?

    Your car has a problem. It's somewhere between the driver seat and the steering wheel. I suggest you have someone look at it ASAP before it hurts someone.

    Door handle Calibration

    You have to physically remove the handle assembly and adjust the microswitches. It's a very tedious operation. I would just have service replace the door handle with a current updated version. It costs $300.

    HOT! Supercharger Cable

    Normal on V2 supercharger. If the handle gets too hot the system will sense this and reduce the charge power. Some folks will carry a damp rag to put on the handle to cool it and return to full power.
