    Regen causing unintended acceleration, according to new study?

    This new scientific article, below, seems like a huge big deal. Basically it sounds as though EVs, including Teslas, may be interacting with Bosch brakes to in essence short circuit (especially when the brake lights error code is triggered) and accelerate due to loss of regen/addition of motor...

    NoA brakes on highway for merging vehicles

    My wife and I are big fans of Tesla. We have a model 3 and a Y and both have NoA. I love to use NoA on the highway, but have found this issue to be a safety concern that should be resolved as anytime the car brakes suddenly and unexpectedly it could cause an accident. When driving in the...

    Your helpful guide to the Tesla Model 3 parking brake

    These three things are true: 1. Whenever the car is put into Park (P), the parking brake is applied. You can call this "automatic parking brake" 2. If you press and hold the right stalk end-button for 3-4 seconds it will apply the parking brake if it is not already applied. If already applied...

    Accident for unable to brake efficiently: Tesla's or my fault?

    Hey all, I've got into a small accident couple months ago and hope we can discuss about this. Dash cam recording goes first: (I only blurred the license plate for privacy concerns. Nothing else edited, for example speed, resolution, color, etc) This rear end accident happened last year, and...

    BeastMode13's Dual Purpose P3D Build Journey

    I have the curse of being an enthusiast that can't just leave things alone. Perhaps a few of you out there can relate to this. :) After starting several threads on installations and track performance related FYI, I find myself going back to those threads time and time again when I'm working...

    Brake Light: Regen Braking!

    Greetings Teslarati and fans! I know I'm kinda posting a lot lately because I'm doing a lot of research before ordering my Model 3 in February. I've noticed that with EVs in general and namely with regenerative braking, that brake light is constantly going on. Even if the car maintains a...

    Noise from passenger front door - like a loose nut in door

    This noise sounds like a nut that is loose in the door. I doubt there is a nut that is loose in there, but it's just to explain what it sounds like. I hear a "knock" when I accelerate or decelerate. If I accelerate/brake very slowly, the noise doesn't happen. But if I drive normally, at every...

    Tesla in Park suddenly moved forward [air temp 33, snow on ground, parked on incline, OEM tires]

    Good evening folks. I know this will sound nuts, but I recently leased a new 2019 Tesla Model 3 long range. The car is amazing. I leased it in central CA where we don't have much weather, and other than a few odd issues that have all be explained and/or resolved, I took it on a road trip to...

    Accelerator pressed : cruise will not brake when pedal isn’t pressed

    So here’s a new one. 2019.36.2.1 AP1 last few days has popped up a message “accelerator pressed, cruise will not brake”, which I’m used to seeing if I actually accelerate on autopilot, but this time I’m not pressing either pedal. The first time it happened, I instinctively pressed the...

    Model 3 Wake Up Noise

    I noticed that everytime the model 3 goes into sleep, then wakes up. There's a fairly loud clank coming from the car, near the floor (batteries). Wondering if other people experienced the same and whether I should bring it up with the service center? Also, I noticed that sometimes when I apply...

    AutoPilot braking on cut-in and brake-check. Does car brake enough?

    Here is what happened during a autopilot session. I am new to AP and learning how to use it too. At this point in time, I let AP negotiate the situation, but AP did not do to my liking. I Like, if AP applied the brakes more. Not sure if others have seen similar behavior. I was on autopilot on...

    MPP AWD/Performance Coilover Impression and Installation

    Two of the weakest link of P3 are the brakes and suspension. Tesla walked a fine line between performance and comfort, for most of the customers, it might be perfect. However, I like my brake a lot more aggressive and suspension a lot more controlled and tight. When Mountain Pass Performance...

    Racing Brake XT910 vs XT970

    This is a comparison between RB XT910 and RB XT970 as daily driver pad. RB XT910 is part of the Racing Brake BBK upgrade I installed a month ago. You can read about the brake job here. The caliper is a 4-pot just like stock P3 Brembo caliper. Unlike Brembo with a pair of same-sized pistons...

    Model 3 braking

    I've had my M3 for 2 months and put over 3000 miles on it, overall very satisfied, however one thing I've always thought was a bit weak are the brakes. When pressing the brake pedal, it doesn't feel like a typical powered ABS I'm used to on ICE vehicles - it feels more like non powered brakes...

    Should I be concerned if the 'brake' icon lights up initially then turns off after about a minute?

    Just picked up my Model 3 and have noticed this behavior a few times. Also get a "windshield wiper fluid low" message that eventually goes away as well. Could it be related to the 110 degree + heat?

    Stronger, more aggressive Regen?

    Over the past week or so I've noticed my Regen is a little stronger than usual. It's been really cold where I live, and after I precondition for 45 minutes or so (with the new battery warming feature) and when I leave, I still have the dotted lines for limited Regen (pic attached) but it seems...

    Recommended brake calipers painters in Sydney

    Apologies if this topic has been covered before. I'd like recommendations of local Sydney businesses that offer brake caliper painting services. I'd like to paint my brake calipers red. Is this recommended? Interested in those who have done this and their experiences.

    Rock in between rotor and shield, help!

    after driving on a gravel / stone road I heard a metallic screeching sound that screeches at low speed and tapes off at high speed. After doing some research it appears I have a rock in my rotor shield scraping off the rotor. I'm 196 miles from a service center. Should I take it to a local...
