    Does exceeding 80mph or unbuckling seatbelt count against FSD?

    We've all seen the email from Tesla involving inattentiveness around the internet: While I have not personally received this email, it does raise a question: Does pressing the accelerator to force Autopilot to exceed 80 MPH count as a strikeout (normally this puts you in Autopilot jail) and...

    Model 3 Cameras Will Not Calibrate

    Hello Everyone, My Tesla Model 3 SR w/ FSD arrived on June 24, 2021. I have not been able to get my cameras to calibrate despite driving over 200 miles on roads with lines that could not be more clear. Furthermore, in the Self Driving Visualization view, I only see the lanes on the roads, no...

    Model 3 Will Not Calibrate

    Hello Everyone, My Tesla Model 3 SR w/ FSD arrived on June 24, 2021. I have not been able to get my cameras to calibrate despite driving over 200 miles on roads with lines that could not be more clear. In my first call to support, I was informed that the right pillar camera was at 0% but the...

    Do I need to recalibrate autopilot after installing coilovers?

    I’m installing coilovers in my Model Y for a softer ride, and to give about an inch more clearance that I sorely need in my neighborhood. My question is: will this change in height affect autopilot functionality? Should i recalibrate autopilot after installation?

    Driver assist features unavailable - front radar alignment

    I took my model S long range 2020 to a car wash and as soon as I left the message « Driver assist features unavailable » appeared. At first I thought some water might have leaked inside the bumper so I decided to give it some time to dry out. After a month or so of waiting nothing happened and I...

    2021.4.10 Bugs

    Hello everyone, On my Model Y, I have noticed two frequent bugs on 2021.4.10. The first is visualizations (Lanes, Cars, Traffic signs, Traffic lights, etc) not showing on the screen. Only the Model Y render displays on the screen. This problem only occurs when I start a fresh drive (Twice...

    Backup camera cracked or peeling from the inside?

    Put my car in reverse today and noticed the backup camera screen was blurry and unusable. Upon inspection it looks like it’s cracked. What’s odd is it doesn’t feel rough or jagged, almost like the issue is from the inside. I assumed a rock or something flew up from the road (winter conditions...

    Autopilot Disabled When Sold

    Hello all, I am looking to buy my brothers used model 3. He has the autopilot package, but I remember reading an article a while back about tesla disabling the autopilot after it was sold to a dealership. I was just curious if anyone knows if they disable autopilot or if this was just weird...

    Can cars ever really FSD until they can read body language?

    The more I use autopilot the more I see the complexities of self-driving cars. Here's an example that would be impossible for a car to deal with correctly unless it can read human body language. I was on autopilot in a 50/60 limit with a very wide lane, the car was in the middle of the lane as...

    Enhanced Autopilot Vs. FSD

    Thoughts? Should I spend the $4000 for enhanced autopilot or $8000 for FSD. Let me know what you think.

    Model 3 not recognizing cars or stoplights. FDS mode & auto pilot not working

    In early July my 2020 model 3 stopped recognizing other vehicles and traffic signals. As a result, FSD mode and cruise control have also stopped working. Sentry mode was disabled as well. I contacted Tesla for service and after some back and forth they said that the car should fix itself. It did...

    Hard, random highway breaking on autopilot

    Driving with my family on the highway yesterday afternoon at about 70mph on autopilot, my M3 suddenly hit the brakes hard, and sustained for what felt like a few seconds, though was probably just a second. I had to hit the accelerator to continue, and avoid being rear-ended. AP did not correct...

    $2K Autopilot Upgrade Option – worth it? Mid-Range M3

    My first post! Hope I do this right. Thanks in advance for whatever wisdom is about to come my way! I have a 2018 mid-range M3. I'm considering the current promotion (deadline July 1) from Tesla to get autopilot for $2K. I've done the trial of that in the past and thought it cool, but I never...

    2020.20.12 Vanishing cars?

    Hi folks, Installed my first update since getting the car last night went from 2020.11.103 to 2020.20.12 and I did notice something odd today when I went driving. The sensors no longer pick up cars in front of me or front sides when standing at the lights. When the cars drive away maybe 30 feet...

    Autopilot nag bug

    Since a couple of weeks my autopilot isn’t working as expected. Usually you get the ‘apply light force’ warning if you’re not holding the wheel, then the blue flashing thing, and eventually the red warning + sound alert. However, I now sometimes get the red warning instantly including the...

    Why doesnt my autopilot stop at signs and lights?

    I purchased a 2018 model 3 and I have all available upgrades including autopilot. I'm signed up for advanced updates in my settings. I have friends who rave about the update that lets their Tesla autopilot stop at stop signs and traffic lights but for some reason mine doesn't do that. I'm a...

    Stop sign problem with TACC - stops before traffic is visible

    While I see many good things about stopping at stop signs under TACC and Autosteer I've experienced one very serious problem and it will be interesting to see how this gets solved. I regularly approach a stop sign at a T intersection and the cars coming from the left and right don't have a stop...

    Can’t adjust speed on Autopilot

    When autopilot is engaged, I can’t adjust the speed using the scroll wheel or touchscreen. My work-around is to disengage AP and then reengage it at the desired speed. This is a new problem—used to be able to adjust the speed just fine. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Going faster than Autosteer limit

    Has anyone pushed the accelerator to go faster than the autosteer’s speed limit and cruise like that say on a two lane highway where autosteer is limited to 5 over the posted speed limit?

    I hate Navigate on Autopilot

    We got our model 3 about a month ago and navigate on autopilot was the number one feature I was excited about in the car! We have done about 1800 miles in the last month almost completely on the highway around southern California. Navigate on autopilot is a terrible driver. The auto lane...

    My experiences with AP as a new owner

    So I have a 2020 MS LR, with FSD. Here are a few quirks I’ve noticed with AP and I’m not sure what to do. When engaging AP early on the on-ramp to an interstate highway, it speeds up to the merge point at the end of the lane, regardless of any traffic in the nest lane and doesn’t seem to find...

    Autopilot Acceleration too rapid

    Any advice on any settings to change? In traffic, car waits for other in front to take off. There is some delay and then it launches after the other cars and 80% of time it then needs to brake... Exactly the same in ‘Chill Mode’ almost as if it ignores on Autopilot.

    What about railroad tracks and FSD?

    I hope Tesla is giving some thought to rail crossings. FSD should be able to detect oncoming train alarms, such as when the gate comes down and signals are pulsing red lights. And some places still probably have those old-fashioned crossed boards to warn of the tracks. Would FSD recognize...

    Dashcam video of avoided accident - would autopilot have avoided this?

    This happened to me yesterday: (fast forward 40 seconds) Autopilot was off at the time and I instinctively swerved to avoid the accident. Wondering if autopilot would have avoided a crash if enabled and I had not reacted? I think it would have slowed but not swerved, and Model 3 would be in...

    Tesla - Post Tax Credit

    I'm very happy overall with my Tesla, but I can't help but feel taken advantage of. I took delivery of a mid-range model 3 with premium package in late 2018. At that time it was about 47k + Tax, and I took advantage of the 7.5k tax credit. Nowadays, the standard model 3 is pretty much the...

    First time using autopilot

    I know this is going to be old news to most of you here, but I made a road trip largely using autopilot for the first time and wanted to share my experience/thoughts and see if they're consistent with the general consensus of other AP users. 1. Drove up from San Diego to LA mostly using...

    Autopilot Error - Following Car in Adjacent Lane

    I'm not sure if there is another thread specific to this issue, as I haven't been able to locate one. As you can see in the picture I took last night, my car is thinking that the car all the way in another lane is my "follow car" which you can tell because the car is dark gray on the display...

    API data point when AP is active

    Good day all, I am trying to determine how much of my driving is on Autopilot and I cannot find any data indicating when autopilot is active or not within the API data stream. Does anyone know if there is a special endpoint for this?

    AP and TACC

    Hi all Can anyone tell me where AP (autosteer) and TACC are supposed to be used, and/or where they work well. I know that AP is only supposed to be used on "highways". From what I have read, I think that would be motorways and dual carriageways over here. Can anyone confirm? What about TACC...

    I bought a 6 digit car...not a video game.

    It seems that every other recent update has to do with some enhancement to games or other entertainment distractions. I'd really like Tesla to prioritize updates to vehicle operability...better navigation, autopilot, internet browser, or user interface (how about a trunk release button on the...

    Car can't change lanes into HOV lane because of the double dashed lines.

    In Palm Beach County, FL on I95 which is the main N/S highway, the left most lane is the HOV lane for a few hours a day, and just the fast lane other times. Using NOP, when I try to have the car change lanes itself into this lane, it gets part way, and then aborts and changes back. The lanes are...

    If you want AP/FSD covered by your insurance, purchase before delivery

    Just had an odd chat with our auto-insurance company about the value of over-the-air factory options. We're adding Autopilot now, a few months after delivery, and evidently they don't care the value of our vehicle is increasing by a few thousand dollars. The representative couldn't tell me...

    AutoPilot Q&A

    Hey guys, I'm still a newbie had my Tesla Model 3 Standard Plus for 3 weeks now. I've used autopilot but had some questions. I don't believe I found anywhere that breaks things down to well. I know them is a difference between, AutoPilot, Autopilot enhanced and Full Self-Driving FSD I do...

    Accelerate/Brake Yo-yo

    I’ve had a great experience with autopilot on highways for over a year now. Was really happy when hard braking for overpasses became a thing of the past (mostly). Totally love auto navigate. However, I was on a highway yesterday, with a very light traffic pattern, and no one in my lane for 20...

    FSD worth now and future?

    Is 6k for the FSD worth with the current available features? OR Is it wise to add it later when all the features are available? If so, will it be expensive to add later?

    New Model 3 autopilot calibration stuck at ~3% after 151 mixed miles

    Just another data point. I picked up my Model 3 Performance (standard autopilot, no FSD) yesterday and has been driving 151 miles mixed with local and freeway traffic. I have Autostreer enabled on autopilot panel, but the "calibration in progress" always there and the progress circle stuck at...

    GoParking feature for a group of cars with auto pilot

    Hi, I came up with idea to save space on parking lot. A group of cars with autopilot could coordinate their actions to be closer on a parking stripe. In the chain of cars must be just 1 bigger space allowing a car to leave the lot, but not enough to park a yet another car. If a car in the...

    Feature Suggestion: License Plate Recognitionto

    (I know this is not a feature suggestion place, but just curious of opinions on the idea. If this has been proposed, mods, please delete). Driving today, I saw a billboard related to an AMBER alert. Given the power of the current (and, of course, FSD) computers in the Tesla vehicles, doing...

    Differences between AP

    I've rented a Model 3 with full AP and drove it on a 500 mile round trip and the AP worked wonderfully. It was a RWD LR model. I knew I wanted a Tesla but boy did I enjoy driving that car. However, I'm really thinking about leaning towards a used 70D with AP1 and I'm wondering when driving what...

    A new Autopilot free trial

    I have an M3 LR RWD without EAP, FSD, or any of the new variations. Just got another free trial offer for AutoPilot. Has anybody else seen this? I wonder if this is another round to get sales since they’re including it in new orders. I also wonder if holding out for eventual free possibility...

    Autopilot goof. Good thing I was paying attention :)

    Just decided to hit the "save" button on my dash cam to show this. Not a big deal, and nothing dramatic, but this is just a bit of evidence that Autopilot in its current state isn't ready for the streets of my town, at least. The dream of "full self driving" seems painfully far away when a...

    Autopilot nag "Apply light force to steering wheel"

    Help please! I'm a bit frustrated with my autopilot. (Model 3, version 2019.8.5) Despite holding the wheel, I frequently get the nag "Apply light force to steering wheel." I move my hands to another location on the wheel and try holding lighter... the alert flashes again... so I try harder...

    Autopilot order page gone from my account

    Considering that Autopilot is now standard on all cars (BTW, I don’t have it), I wanted to take a peek at my account page to see what the after-delivery price is now. Weirdly, it’s gone. It was there a few days ago. I’m curious if others are seeing the same thing. If so, I’d be curious if...

    Finding if you have new autopilot chip.

    I just get my Model 3 standers + two weeks ago and I was wondering if there was a way to check if I have the new AP3 computer or if I have AP2 hardware. How can you check for this?

    Autopilot versus Adaptive Cruise?

    Hi guys, thanks for being super helpful with my questions. I have another one. My current vehicle has adaptive cruise control (ACC). I set the speed, and then it maintains up to that speed, at a safe and consistent distance from the vehicle in front. It's a useful feature and although I don't...
