    Power Drain (continued)

    This has probably been discussed a lot before, but I’m new to the club so wanted a clean start! I left my Model 3 with an off-airport parking service for 10 days. It was driven away with 202 miles range and returned with just 60 miles. It had only been driven 16 miles to and from the car park...

    Battery drain while car is sitting idle

    Battery drain while car is sitting idle. Moving to a new city, and have left my Tesla S there for a couple of weeks, before I return. I’ve noticed the battery is draining and a fairly rapid rate, even though it is just parked. I turned off Sentry and climate control. Is there anything else I...

    Tesla iOS app widget & car wakeup

    I have tested the iOS app widget this week. I have read in an old post that the widget should not wake up the car in any way as opening the app does. However, every time I swipe left the phone screen to the widgets page, it first shows the previous range (with a « X minutes ago » tag), then...

    SR+ Battery Drain While Driving.

    Hey everyone, Had my car for a year a half now. Had to get front upper control arm swapped last week due to extreme squeaking that came out of nowhere. Problem solved. They added air to all 4 tires. Was sitting at 41 PSI cold and 45 PSI hot. They jacked it up to 45-46 cold and I hit 49-50 hot...

    Phantom drain & sleep - Solved in 2020.12.11.1

    It appears that a huge phantom drain and sleep problem was solved for me when I updated my 2020 MX to 2020.12.11.1 (from 2020.12.6). Previous to the update I was losing on average 3.3 kWh and 12.6 miles per 24 hours. That loss was totally phantom drain and it would not sleep. Since the update...

    Teslafi Vampire Drain

    I had Teslafi set up with default settings but no polling between 2400 and 0500. I fully charged my M3 before driving to Birmingham airport leaving it with a respectable 210 miles range showing - I thought easily enough to get me home after some ‘vampire drain’ over my 8 days parking. As...

    Model 3 voorverwarming batterij en cabine (precondtioning) en WiFi conflicten.

    Batterij voorverwarming bij koud weer gebeurt door stroom door de stator(s) van de motor(en) te sturen met een vermogen van 3,5 kW per stator dus 7 kW verwarming bij een dual drive. De cabine verwarming en ruit ontwaseming gebeurt via een 7 kW verwarmingselement. Bij rijden wordt dat uit de...

    Liftgate Drain Blockage

    Does anyone else have a problem with the drains in the liftgate getting blocked? Mine have both been blocked several times now, you can tell when you get a nice pond forming under the rear spoiler (mine does not have a active spoiler). I’ve tried using a air compressor (from both directions) but...

    Vampire Drain / Capaciteits Verlies Tesla 3

    De Drain ofwel het verlies aan km van Tesla 3 (of X en S) is voornamelijk afhankelijk van de elektronika die voortdurend aanstaat. Denk aan LTE / WiFi / Bluetooth. Dan als b.v. Sentry mode (Bewakingsmodus zie: beveiliging) wordt ingeschakeld neemt deze verder toe doordat o.a. de camera's dan...

    Losing 3.5KWh sitting in garage for 24h? Normal?

    Hello Tesla peoples! Enjoying my month-old Model X 100D, and just returned from a trip where the car sat idle in the garage while we were away. Each day there was a loss of 3.5 KWh and about 11 miles of range. Is this normal? Should the car go into 'sleep' mode? I have pre-conditioning turned...
