falcon wing door

    All the falcon wing sensors stopped working for a few hours to a day

    Hi I had an episode opening the falcon wing door in the garage (have done it before hundreds of times with no problem) where it quickly went up and hit the ceiling cracking the glass. I then noticed that on the screen, I did not see the sensors at all (usually I would see the ceiling and door...

    First day of delivery. Falcon wing door fails to close on slope. What shall I do?

    Hi all, I just took the delivery today for Model X. Everything was smooth until I drove it home and found the issue of falcon wing door: it fails to close on slope (i.e., my home's drive way). It will sound alarms and says obstacle detected. I will have to press the close button twice...

    FWD & child in second row seat

    I had a six-year-old boy riding in one of the mid-row seats today. He was trying to open the FWD next to him when we parked somewhere using the B-pillar control, and it was very unresponsive. The door would open just an inch or so at most and there were lots of beeping noises. I could...

    Falcon Wing upper glass hairline cracks with no apparent reason

    I just had my MX brought to service center for a hairline crack on the upper glass on the falcon wing. There was no visible point of impact anywhere near the crack so I suspect that it could be anything from design, installation or material flaw which I believe should be covered by the car...

    Late 2018 MX Falcon wing door sensors?

    Hi Folks, I picked up a Dec 2018 MX75 recently and am not sure if all the FWD interior sensors are working correctly. The doors have no problem opening, but have closed on our heads a couple of times. I've found touch sensors along the trim of the door (prevents pinching on fingers), an...

    Model X Quality

    First I want to say that I really like this car. I have 2018 Model X deliver in December. I think acceleration is amazing. I like the seats, the window, the spaciousness and autopilot...although the latter can kill you if you don't pay sharp attention. The issue I have is the quality. In...

    FWD put a hole in my garage drywall after upgrading to V9

    I had a feeling that the FWD sensors either stopped working (a bug in V9) or were made more “confident” with V9. The FWD never opened to full height previously since it would sense the garage motor (although it could). After v9, I saw that it started opening with full speed and to the full...

    Locking the FWD buttons...

    Hi. Does anyone know if it’s possible to disable the interior FWD buttons? I know the child lock function prevents the open button from working, but not the close button. The reason I ask is that when I’m putting my 3yo into his seat he sometimes reaches forward and presses the close button...

    2018 MX: FWD not closing at all, phantom obstacle.

    2018 March MX here. Just got the car back from the SC after 10 days for aa firmware upgrade failure that was traced to the ECU on the FWDs. Now the passenger side FWD keeps "detecting" a phantom obstacle. Refuses to close unless I use the override. I don't want to head back to the SC again...

    Manually push open a partially opened falcon wing door

    I just watch a video where a Model X crashed in NY and noticed that the Tesla guy manually pushed open the passenger side falcon wing door that was already about 80% opened. Is that something that can be done normally or would that mess up the mechanics of the door? Here is the link to the video...

    New sensor in Falcon Wing doors. No more bruised heads.

    I took delivery of my MX this week and while going over the car I was told about a new sensor that is now built in to the interior of the Falcon Wing doors. The sensor checks if anyone is present underneath the door prior to closing. I have tested and can confirm that it works. Before I...

    Problem with Falcon Wing Door

    After 4 months of happy driving, one of my doors stop operating. I called the 800 number, but notwitstanding a number of over-the-air resets, they were unable to fix it or stop the annoying alarm that sounded repeatedly while the car was in drive mode. It took Tesla 48 hours to have a ranger...
