    Powerwall Backorders

    Since you are not in Norcal, I don't think it would help. You should ask your solar installer if you could talk with the appropriate rep for your area.

    Powerwall Backorders

    Yes, I wanted to work with a local Santa Cruz, CA company that was certified for the Self-Generation Incentive Program.

    Powerwall Backorders

    Well things certainly can change. I spoke to the Tesla Energy rep. on June 22, 2021. He said it would likely be late September or the end of the year at worst for delivery. Not a week later, my solar contractor said they had received some Powerwalls, and I would be having my 3 installed this...

    Powerwall Backorders

    Well a sales rep actually did contact me today. There is a chip shortage with the inverter chips that go into the powerwalls. So powerwalls each have an inverter chip. Meaning the Tesla gateway does not act as an inverter. Interesting. They have two sources for these chips and BOTH are...

    Powerwall Backorders

    My solar contractor said Tesla "Senior Management" will be contacting me directly in the next couple of weeks to explain their delays. I will report back here what I learn.

    Powerwall Backorders

    I have a SGIP contract with a 3rd party. No powerwalls for the last 9 months. I was told yesterday that there is now a chip shortage. My concerns are that I have until October to complete the SGIP process to get the rebate. I have asked the installer if that date can be extended due to...

    How to get a hold of service, not using the app

    Update: I drove to the Service Center, explained my dilemma, and they made an appointment for me tomorrow. So it seems that going in person is the best way!

    How to get a hold of service, not using the app

    It is not making an appointment, it is returning the wheel within 3 business days, unless mutually agreed upon. If I could actually talk to someone at tesla, or if they would even respond to my texts or emails, then we could be assured I would not be charged for the wheel

    How to get a hold of service, not using the app

    So, I had a flat tire after my 800 mile journey from Santa Cruz, CA to Kirkland, WA. They have quickly given my a loaner tire. I then dutifully made an appointment for a tire swap. Earliest appointment was 3 weeks out. Now Tesla says in the tire loan agreement that I need to make an...

    What is the current lead time for Power Wall installation?

    I just received a similar notice from my installer yesterday. Started a thread specific to this.

    Powerwall shipping delays?

    I am very early in a project to provide powerwalls for the Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) here in Northern CA. My installer called me last night and said Tesla had called to inform them that there would be a significant delay in ordering powerwalls. Has anyone else received similar...

    California SGIP Equity Resiliency

    I have also just entered into a contract for 3 powerwalls. I am a High Resiliency candidate. I chose a local installer as they manage the entire project and are most familiar with local code requirements. They are also a certified installer. Interestingly, they are using a subcontractor...

    Air suspension kit Recommendations?

    My only real complaint about drivability is due to living on rural roads and the harsh suspension on said roads. I came upon a kit that looks good. Has anybody tried it or have other recommendations? Tesla Model Y Luxury Coilover Suspension Kit by Unplugged Performance

    Mirror auto-fold changes after update

    Thanks X-P, I might delete the profile and create one with a different name to be sure it doesn't "hold on to" old data.

    Mirror auto-fold changes after update

    My user profile seems to change after a software update. Specifically, my mirrors, which auto fold at home, do not unfold. I have to stop a short ways from my house, unfold the mirrors, turn off auto fold for the location. Then when I get back home, the mirrors do not auto fold. I have to...

    Voice command "No connectivity"

    Periodically when I try to use a voice command, I get a "No connectivity" reject. Do voice commands require that phone service is available? It seems that when I am not in cell range that this is when the car doesn't want to listen to me. ;)o_O

    Key Fob ceased to open frunk

    Solved, battery was low, but not dead. Retrained my wife to double click to open frunk/trunk. Did not know that holding the fob for more than 2 seconds opens the charge port. Helped to reread (RRTFM).

    Key Fob ceased to open frunk

    I got a key fob for my wife. It no longer opens the frunk/trunk, but lets you in the vehicle. When I push the trunk soft key on the fob, the charge port opens! I deleted and reinstalled the FOB, no change. Suggestions? Or should I just ask for a replacement.

    Adjusting Steering Effort. Is it more than just steering?

    I live in a rural area and frequently travel on one particularly bumpy road. Recently I had switched the steering effort to Sport. When I traveled this road, the suspension seemed much firmer, to the point of being uncomfortable. The next time I traveled the road I put it on Comfort and the...

    Gen2 Wall connector does not open MY charge port

    Thanks, I think you may be correct about the car being unlocked. Now I always take my paired phone with me when I use the charger.

    Gen2 Wall connector does not open MY charge port

    We have had the car about a week (Yay!) and the gen 2 wall connector worked fine until yesterday when the button on the charger does not open the charge port. I can still open the port from the car display and the charger works fine otherwise. I power cycled the charger and verified I can see...

    Received a delivery for next week but VIN appears to be wrong

    Tesla replied to my query saying it is LR AWD. Thanks for your replies. Interesting about insurance costs.

    Received a delivery for next week but VIN appears to be wrong

    I received a text from Tesla for delivery next week. However it appears that the VIN is for a performance model, not LR AWD. The eighth digit of the assigned VIN, is an "F" which decodes to performance. I think the digit needs to be a "B". Can anyone confirm this?

    My delivery postponed, Model Y going to the bodyshop

    I have similar issues. My saga: I won the lottery! No, not that one, the Tesla runaround lottery! First I received a text last Saturday that I would be receiving my car the next day. But I had no loan, no contract, so no go. But I had a VIN. Then they texted for me to sign a contract Yay! But...

    Anyone taking delivery of Model Y this week?

    Lack of transparency with Delivery ppl

    I too have had "issues" with the way the delivery experience is being run. I received a text Sat. saying to be delivered Sunday, with no contract to be seen. Various issues on my part about a trade in (living trust on a trade in car) I was assigned a VIN, then that VIN was changed. Everything...
