    Telsa Replacing Computer (Warranty)

    Tesla is replacing my car computer due to a hardware fault with the WiFi. I currently have AutoPilot Hardware 2.5 (It's a 2018 LR) Would they replace it with the new Hardware 3.0 FSD computer? Curious if anyone's gone through something similar via warranty. Thanks!

    GPS Marker Stuck, Computer Replacement on 2 week old Model Y

    I just wanted to share the issue we have had with my wife's brand new Model Y. This is our second Tesla. I have a 2020 Model 3 Dual Motor. We've only driven it 800 miles. The GPS marker is stuck at the last location. It will not move. The car works as usual. These are what works. Car is...

    2021 Model 3 Problems

    First off, I want to love my M3P. This is my first Tesla, and I took delivery of it on 23 Dec. Upon delivery, there were a couple issues. Minor scratch/gouge on front bumper, spoiler wasn't stuck on well, and after getting home, realized there was some type of overspray on all of the glass...

    Interesting and unique tech accessory

    Hope it's ok to start a thread about this...I figured it's a one of a kind setup and is worth sharing. Anyways, working in IT, I'm always used to having lots of monitors around me, so I used two of these clamps: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GVF445X To attach this monitor...

    Passenger door window not functional

    I'm driving 2019 Model X with 11,000 miles. My passenger door window will not go all the way down, and when raising the window it goes to top, than backs down half way. No history of damage. I suspect the auto door closure is too hard and it derailed the window. I have appt with service to...

    HVAC (or, at least A/C) settings depending on GPS data???

    A fellow Hungarian was tapping in to the computer the other day and found this: UI_solarData UI_solarElevationAngle: 56deg UI_solarAzimuthAngle: 126deg UI_solarAzimuthAngleCarRef: 48deg UI_isSunUp: YES He claims that the car uses this information and adjusts the vents accordingly (when using...

    Tesla's a Software Company

    I made a video on what it's been like owning a Model S. The key realization I had was that Tesla, more than any other company selling cars, is actually a software company that happens to sells computers on wheels while most others are hardware companies selling mechanics. Wondering if others agree?

    What happens to the reclaimed AP2.5 computers?

    I'm curious about what Tesla does with the AP2.5 computers they get from doing the HW3 upgrade? Do they throw them away? Use them for alternate computing tasks? Keep them as spares for repairing non-FSD cars? Install them in new non-FSD vehicles? Collect them in a warehouse somewhere? As the...

    Smart Summon HW3 vs HW2.5 differences yet?

    I'm surprised I haven't found any threads on this already, but has anyone done any testing or comparison of Smart Summon with the HW3 computer compared to HW2.5? Is there any difference in the performance, speed, or accuracy of the routing between the two systems? Also I recall reading that...

    Dropping numbers on projected range

    A couple of years ago my Tesla’s computer was so corrupt it had to be replaced. I noticed at that time my energy readout became erratic. Now it’s happening again. Notice the two photos where a digit is blank. Seems this can’t be replicated at service center. I suggest you document with...
