    Rattling noise from seat belt tensioner

    I just noticed this rattle on my car as well, now that my wife started driving it and adjusted the drivers side all the way down.

    Slow discoveries, or How to silence the entry chimes

    Easy Entry + buckling up before touching the bake pedal = seat belt squeeeeeze :confused: Have to keep some slack on the belt even after it’s buckled until after the seat has stopped moving, then let it tighten. Or just listen to a chime or two and wait till things have stopped moving around...

    Supercharger - Angola IN

    Turns out TMC didn’t have a thread that was specific to Angola IN — so I made this one, and moved your post to here. Now that there is a new dedicated discussion thread, we can ask @BlueShift to update the Angola link on SC.info. Thanks for pointing this out.

    Tesla: The CURE for range anxiety

    ^ what he said. Coming from a 70-miles-in-good-weather BEV and going to a 300-mile 3LR, and with supercharging to boot -- I didn't realize how constraining the previous vehicle was till now. Freedom feels good.

    Callers consistently having trouble hearing me on phone

    Are callers complaining about an echo? My significant other complained of a bad echo from my car BT a few times recently when I was on firmware 2018.21.9. Supposedly fixed in FW 2018.24.x — see Summon anyone? 2018.24.1 Could also ask for someone to sit in your car and then borrow their...

    Spammer on the Forum?

    The site is seeing a common pattern of spam influx around the same time each day. I’ve taken to reviewing both New Posts and also New Members each morning (US Eastern time) to flush it out. The site admins (@doug and @danny) are also tweaking the back-end to improve and automate our defenses...

    Just stopped by for a quick test-charge, works great. Amusing that it doesn't yet show up in the car mapping UI as a Supercharger destination yet, heh

    Supercharger - Carmel, IN

    No pic today, but workers were at the site. Cable conduits are coming up from trenches in several spots (actually not sure if trenches had been covered over or not, will look more closely next time). The Supercharger cabinets have not yet been unpacked or moved to their final locations though.

    Starbase: Boca Chica/Brownsville SpaceX Site

    I think SpaceX is also sizing the BFR to be able to launch from Cape Canaveral (reduced dimensions/thrust a bit to fall within limits of the Pad-39 facilities). They may test subsystems at McGregor but they can't get the whole thing there. So Boca Chica may include test facilities as well as...

    A few Model 3 Questions....

    For #1, are you putting the car in Park? Instead, you could shift to Neutral (when in D, push up lightly and hold, car will go to N — same thing from reverse except push/hold down lightly), if needed can apply the foot brake. This should keep the charge port door shut.

    Tesla app update 3.3.6

    Android app v3.3.6 now has Loot Box icon/page, which wasn’t there before (for this Model 3 owner). Checking the Tesla site shows referral code and info added there too.

    Supercharger - Fishers, IN

    As of yesterday evening the Fishers supercharger was (still?) down. Icon is grey in the Tesla interface, no signage or appearance of any work at the site itself but the SCs are dark. (I missed the grey icon indication and pulled in with 5%/15 miles left — oh $#*&@ — had to use a destination...

    AC Cobra vs Tesla in Ludicrous mode

    You'll want to read this article: The 2017 Tesla Model S P100D and the 0-100-0 Test - Motor Trend Summary: - The claim was that the 1965 Cobra did the 0-100-0 in 13.8 seconds. But that time is disputed and not (easily) replicated. - The Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous does 0-100 in 6.0 seconds...

    Ford Focus Electric. Haven’t sold it yet, drove it today for the first time since getting my Model 3 a few weeks ago. It feels so different now, in a bad way, heh. Tesla has raised the bar through the roof with the Model 3. Concur on the need in Bloomington and Evansville

    Bluetooth - unlocking the door survey

    Specific to the Auto Unlock on approach (mirror behavior) — this was changed in a firmware update a few weeks ago, now the car will unlock and mirrors fold out only when a door handle or trunk button is pushed and the phone-key is in range and connected. Too many people I think had issues with...

    Phone as Key Issues

    Another data-point. I have owned my Model 3 for three weeks now, running 2018.14.13 for the last 2 weeks, and I use a Samsung Galaxy S7 phone with Android 7.0 Nougat, Tesla Android app version 3.3.5 Not once have I been unable to access (unlock or drive) my car with the phone. The only time...

    Accident at Oxnard Supercharger Site

    Yep! In the very first picture of the thread you can see two people carrying a cut palm log away from the area, and in the second ‘after’ pic there are piles of sawdust across space 5B. The stump is still under/in front of the truck. Yikes yikes yikes.

    Autiopilot Still Calibrating after 160 miles

    I had an issue where during/after delivery the GPS said I was driving across the hills outside San Jose, when I was thousands of miles from that location. Autopilot also did not activate and I assume the two issues were related. Had to reset the touchscreen (hold both steering wheel buttons...

    Indiana Tesla owners and future owners

    I’m not in that area, but there is a “Rate EVX” for Indianapolis Power & Light that offers time-of-use rates, but requires a separate meter base dedicated to the EVSE only. Bit of a pain, but lets them more easily monitor/study EV charging behavior and encourage scheduled overnight recharging...

    Moonbase Alpha - The Moonbase discussion

    If there is actual ice on the moon, why hasn't it sublimated? Temperatures in the craters are <100K, so the ice is in fact sublimating, but at an extremely slow rate, so as to be not appreciable. Back to the Zubrin article — haven’t done the maths/research yet, but wondering how the total...

    1st week with Tesla 3, quality control issues

    This is not meant as a statement on whether Tesla /should/ be providing more of a "white-glove" or "concierge" service -- but frankly the current market pressure isn't requiring them to do so. Traditional auto dealers from the same manufacturer are in many ways selling a commodity, so one of...

    Non Owner - Just Placed my Order

    Correct. Are you going with the first production config, or waiting for a different option? If the former, what’s your color choice? Why do I ask? B/c I’m jealous :) and I don’t recall if you’d mentioned preferences once you got the invite.

    Indiana Tesla owners and future owners

    Wow, congrats! Wasn’t expecting to see any not-previous-owners in Indiana be invited to configure yet. Since I’m in the same line-waiter non-owner boat, of course I immediately refreshed my Tesla page. :) No dice yet. I did note in the Indiana TMC club section here that the Indianapolis...
