    Wall Connector network connections to AWS servers

    PMF would allow the wifi connection to happen or not happen. Does the new device have any additional helpers enabled by default? (Tftp, sip, etc)

    12v question

    Most of the time the 12v can be overpowered by the main battery. But some failures like a dead short in a cell are still problematic.

    Another Tesla Insurance Rate Increase! Seriously Tesla?

    Capitalism. Everyone chasing the $. Non stop mergers & venture capitalists.

    Need Advice on allstate declaring my bumper/panel damage totaled!

    Yup. That’s the question. I have a 2017 S100D that I feel the same way about. It happens to have a smaller dent in the rear quarter that I’ve lived with for 3 years now. (Parking lot bump). The fusc/FSD transfer is about to push me over the edge to get a new warranty. But honestly, I’ve only...

    Need Advice on allstate declaring my bumper/panel damage totaled!

    Definitely not worth $20k with that damage.

    Creaking noise (control arm again!)

    My L & R compliance links were priced differently.

    Installing wall connector questions

    Sure. Get a cover with a hole. Flex conduit. Proper wire. And a WC. Or an electrician to verify the existing circuit and connect it up. Be sure to have the WC configured properly for the circuit size.

    About to lose it with rats in my Model 3

    The owner of the field might? It’s just what I’ve read on trying to rid myself of furniture eating squirrels.

    CCS Adapter Support

    Tesla has been inconsistent with some features as they navigated supply shortages.

    About to lose it with rats in my Model 3

    Unless catch and release is many miles away, it won’t help. And it’s not legal in some jurisdictions to release a wild animal on someone else’s property.

    Yup. Been there. Yuck.

    battery fuse requires replacement soon? what is this?

    The word is that the warning has plenty of lead time and isn’t urgent.

    battery fuse requires replacement soon? what is this?

    I don’t believe they are doing this repair under mobile service.

    I’ve had good luck with electronic rodent traps.

    How long Tesla typically take to ship and deliver a new Key Card in USA?

    As long as you have a working card you can add another. I *think* with the more recent software versions it might just require the app properly logged in and not a key card.

    Passenger Restraint Fault - 6 hours after delivery....

    I’ve been told once you mention lemon or talked to a lawyer it’s pretty much a conversation with Tesla legal. For better or worse.

    Power steering has gone and its going to cost me to get it to Tesla Service...

    You have made up your mind and they will tow it. Go for it!

    Power steering has gone and its going to cost me to get it to Tesla Service...

    Call them and argue safety, that doesn’t work, pay for it or just drive it. I’d personally just drive it. I’ve driven many cars that never had power steering. Sure, it’s not great.

    Power steering has gone and its going to cost me to get it to Tesla Service...

    Does it should steer fine when it is moving? I’d personally just drive it. I hate watching my car get put in a truck and however they end up tying it down.

    Ticking/Clicking noise

    Well, a bolt just fell out of the front end of our 3. One that holds the lower arms on. Get it checked, esp if it’s under warranty.

    Insurance cost difference between MY and MX

    Call your agent. It’s going to be highly variable.

    Advice please: Trade-in 2017 MX 100D w/free supercharging for a 2024 MY?

    I was impressed with the Y in terms of storage. But I don’t have an X to compare. I have a S and a 3. Like both for different reasons. My wife on the other hand doesn’t like the S due to it being less nimble.

    Passenger Restraint Fault - 6 hours after delivery....

    Keep records of amount of time it’s been in service. Look up your states lemon laws, and consider asking for a buyback before you spent $$ on a lawyer and mention the word lemon.

    Even Trade-In from 2023 to 2024 Model Y

    Totally depends on the state.

    Advice please: Trade-in 2017 MX 100D w/free supercharging for a 2024 MY?

    They are different cars. Have you driven the Y? It’s going to depend on what is important to you.

    Confirmed. Several recalls out there for this but none appear to cover our specific car.

    Suspension rattling sound turned out to be a loose bolt!

    pretty sure limited access to the back and quicker assembly.

    12V Battery Replacement - Local Options?

    Pricing is typical for an S. It has the AGM battery. Agree on the cusp, but saves the trip to buy a battery and return the core.

    Suspension rattling sound turned out to be a loose bolt!

    Bolt fell out of my 3 from the same year range as the recall, but my car is not listed in the recall. Check your suspension folks!

    How long Tesla typically take to ship and deliver a new Key Card in USA?

    No idea. Their product ship times are all over the place. From same day to weeks. I picked one up at a service center, but that’s not convenient for everyone.

    Found bolt - which car?

    Thanks! Noticed it while pulling the car out to go to it’s appointment to have the upper control arms replaced @ Tesla. Perhaps wasn’t my smartest moment driving the car there…

    Found bolt - which car?

    Wife found this on the driveway. In one of the expansion cracks, so no idea how long. We have a 2017 S100D, a 2018 M3LR, and a 2003 Dodge Ram. Likely came from one of our cars, but we did have tree people here a few weeks ago that parked in the drive too… Any ideas?

    How much super charging is considered too much for good battery health

    The leaf used to overheat with no active cooling and hurt the batteries. The Tesla has active cooling so charge away.

    12 Volt Replacement Battery- MF, EFB, AGM or Lion?

    An AGM battery can be charged faster, has a higher bulk charge voltage and has a higher float charge voltage than a flooded lead acid battery. Putting an AGM in a FLA place should do no harm. However, putting a FLA battery in a system designed for a AGM will likely cook the FLA.

    Supercharger - Temple, TX

    With a bucees going in the Hillsboro area that will likely have a large number of chargers, I don’t see need to add more here for a while. Perhaps some new configurations for drive through with trailers or V4? I don’t see adding to the current location. It wraps all the way from one entrance...

    Supercharger - Temple, TX

    Yea. I’m not sure. Those two photos covered everything under construction at the time. The pad was in the top right corner of this picture and the dispenser pads continued clockwise (down) from the main pad. The equipment pad looked huge compared to recent Tesla designs.

    Supercharger - Temple, TX

    Sure had a long restroom line on the women’s side. Definitely the preferred travel stop. In the short term, I feel like the only thing that will help is more bucees

    Supercharger - Temple, TX

    Thus is the northeast corner of the lot- looks like they are doing a big Buccees add on south of the store. Sorry no photo. And cyber truck spotting in the wild charging. Founders model per etching on back.

    Does your state charge you a penalty for owning a Tesla?

    The reason for the difference is a first year registration from a car purchased at a licensed dealer is a 2 year registration.
  49. B

    Charging question!

    The car will avoid damage, but will not keep the battery “warm”. The temperature to avoid freeze damage is quite low.
