    Unable to drive with new iPhone 12

    OK, thanks everyone! I forgot that I needed to use the Tesla App to add the iPhone 12 as a digital key. I did that and now it works fine.

    Unable to drive with new iPhone 12

    I just got an iPhone 12. Every time I try to shift into reverse or drive from park I have to use the contact card. I paired the phone many times and the same problem persists. My previous phone was a Pixel 4a. I didn't have this problem with that phone. I did delete the Pixel 4a, so the only...

    Strange Bell Sound

    Thanks everyone for the replies. I noted that I had the Speed Assist Chime enabled (Ref Page 114 Owners Manual). I disabled this 'Feature'. I haven't driven the car yet, but hope this change solves the problem.

    Strange Bell Sound

    I am getting a strange bell sound every few minutes. It started after the last software update. It is very loud and I can't determine the source. Does anyone have this sound? How do I suppress it?

    Ping Sound

    I just downloaded the 'Christmas Present' software and now I get a loud ping sound intermittently. It appears to be stop light related, but I only got one ping going through a stop light. No other stop lights generated a ping. Does anyone know what this sound is for?

    Windshield Wipers in Carwash

    I just went through a carwash for the first time. I could not stop the auto wipers. The wiper action was a real pain. Is there anyway to stop them from activating?

    AP Initial Set Speed

    I have my AP speed control set to 'Relative' Speed. The car accelerates to the posted speed limit anytime I engage the speed control function below the posted speed limit. It didn't use to work that way. I want the car to hold the current speed at engagement. Has anyone else seen this...

    Increased Steering Effort Message

    I got an 'Increased Steering Effort' Message today. When I pressed on the message a pop-up stated to contact Tesla service. I drove a few miles and didn't notice any difference in steering effort. When I got home I shut the car down and repowered - that cleared the message. Has anyone else seen...

    Aero cover paint color

    Another option is to just purchase a new wheel cover at the Tesla parts department. They are located within the service centers. I believe the price is only $30.00. Not that much more than touch-up paint.

    Rear Sun Shade

    I just installed the rear sun shade and it fits great. The shade only came with two clips. It looks like I am missing one or three clips. Does anyone know how many clips the shade should have?

    Cracked plastic mesh

    No it isn't. I found defects on my car weeks after delivery and they were repaired under warranty. I took delivery at the Tempe, AZ delivery center. I would press them to cover this defect.

    Rear Glass Sunshade

    I purchased the shade and did not like it. The shade had gaps around the edges and the clips were cheesy. I returned it. As others have stated, it isn't really needed.

    M3 Steering Wheel off-center

    My M3 tracks perfectly straight with the stering wheel centered. Sounds like you need an alignment. They will adjust the left and right tie rods to make one longer and one shorter be equal amounts. This will center the steering wheel while retaining the straight-line tracking.

    Windshield stickers?

    I would try a wet Magic Eraser with a small amount of comet cleanser added to the Eraser. This worked for me to remove a circular stain on the outside of the rear window.

    40 Amp Charge Rate Bug

    I have my charge rate set to 40 Amps. For some reason when I plug in the Wall Connector the charge rate reverts to 48 Amps. Has anyone else seen this bug?

    Regen Braking with Brakes

    OK thanks for the detailed response. I still don't fully understand what happens when I depress the brake pedal. The energy bar shows regen, but from your explanation the friction brakes are applied. Which is correct?

    Regen Braking with Brakes

    When I apply the brakes lightly during low speed driving (15 MPH) the energy bar shows green regeneration. I thought regeneration was not enabled when brakes were applied. Can anyone explain what I am seeing?

    Radio Audio level as a Function of Speed

    I am constantly adjusting the radio audio level as a function of speed. Does anyone else do this? There should be a menu option to add an automatic audio level increase as speed increases. The feature should be variable to account for different cabin noise levels with different tires, ear...

    I got my working after a Mobil Service Rep came to my house. First he had me do a soft reset (hold both steering wheel buttons down for > 7 sec while in park.

    Cabin Air Filter Question

    I believe the metal plate in the glove box allows access to the AP processor/graphics card. This is the card that will be replaced for free sometime in the first quarter to allow AP tracking on Navigation.

    Knee Airbags

    I guess my RWD Model 3 has dual knee airbags according to all the links I have read. I looked under the driver's and passenger's knee area and can't really see an airbag, but there are plastic covers that probably hide the airbags.

    Knee Airbags

    I guess it is hard to tell. My window sticker stated the car had six airbags total so that would indicate no knee airbags. There are driver's and passenger's front seat airbags and I can't tell if they are there. In older cars with seat mounted airbags there would be a text on the seat side...

    Knee Airbags

    Return Aero Wheel Kit

    OK I figured it out. Tesla will provide a free return shipping label. I am returning them because the allow wheels show too much of the inner wheel for my taste. Also, the wheel nut caps are not very secure. The last reason is that I want to keep my car in the configuration it was delivered...
