    Garage door opener antenna

    Does anyone know details of the antenna used in the model 3 for opening/closing the garage door? I think it is on the driver’s side, but I was wondering its orientation and, thus, Polarization. Any details would be appreciated— model specifications would be awesome as well. kurt

    Designing a Tesla Garage -- Cars, Powerwalls, and Solar Roof

We are planning on doing quite a few unique tesla items such as a "POWER WALL" (all 4 powerwall 2's to be mounted on one wall...

    220V outlet spliced from water heater line?

    I've got a friend who is looking at a M3 and doesn't have any affordable/easy way to add 220V charging in his garage. His water heater is in the garage and is set to run on a timer. Charging 110V is out of the question since his commute is about 75 miles. What do you guys think of the idea of...

    How do you fit a BAC into a SBG

    How do I fit an M3 (=Big American Car) into my SBG (small British garage). I've seen a few videos on YT from the US demonstrating how to reverse an M3 into the typical huge double american garage. Some of these videos also add a few obstacles for fun. But I can't find any video where the...

    Don't do what I did

    I picked up my Y on Friday and drove it home without incident. I pulled into the garage and congratulated myself on not getting into an accident on its first trip. I then opened the hatch and watched in horror as it hit the open garage door! I almost had a heart attack, but, miraculously...

    Hello all. So this will be my first summer with my model 3. Unfortunately my home is east/west facing with the garage on the west side of the home. As we are starting to get in to the summer months it typically gets hot in the garage in the afternoon when the sun is hitting it. The last...

    Show me your garage renovations prior to power wall installations

    Hello, I bought just over a 200k house in small city in Missouri. This is not likely a forever home and whatever renovations I do, will not likely add much to the value of the house. I was planning a DIY renovations. I want to support Tesla, but until out of student loan debt, I will likely...

    WiFi won't connect to strong signal, low bandwidth AP

    Is anyone else connecting to a Plume or similar mesh network? I finally got electricity into my detached garage (ongoing house renovation), and added a Plume pod out there, so the WiFi signal in the garage itself is strong, but the node actually has a very weak uplink to the rest of the mesh...

    Summon, snow and a narrow garage PSA

    This was a first for me, and I don't recall ever seeing anyone having this issue. After driving home last Saturday in a heavy, wet snow storm with large clingy flakes, I manually parked in my garage, offset to one side so I could open the door enough to exit. Normally I just use summon to pull...

    Garage & Homelink Issues

    Ever since the recent software update, my Model X always forgets the garage programming. Anyone else experiencing this? When I talk to Tesla about it, they claim they don't know why this would be and they don't see any issues when they pull the car logs. I've owned my X for a little more than a...

    For those with HomeLink issues.

    I'm not sure if it's random luck or not but if you're having issues with HomeLink go to the center screen and turn the vehicle "Off". Then once the vehicle comes back on immediately do a scroll wheel reset. My HomeLink would only work after I did a reset and then it would open and close once...

    Wifi vs 4G for SW Updates?

    When I park the MX in my garage, it gets around 300-400 Kbps from the 4G. I tried connecting to my home WiFi but it only gets slightly better speeds 400-500Kbps. I've read that when you get the "Software Update Available" notification, the car has already finished downloading the update. Does...

    Update Withdrawal...a WiFi issue?

    I've not gotten my update fix in nearly two months. Not since 17.17.4. I can't take it much longer. Where's my silky smooth? I'm tired of being jerked around on the highway and have my mediocre parking skills challenged every time I back in to a parking spot. And the latest and greatest is...

    Constant hum while parked in the garage

    I've recently upgraded my 2013 MS to a 2016 model, and noticed that the new car always seems to have a hum while parked in the garage. Doing some searching revealed that it's expected that there would be some humming due to coolant circulation and such, but I don't think it should be lasting...

    Stopping in Garage

    Summon allows for setting the stopping distance from the front wall to the front of the car. Why isn't there such a thing for when I drive the car into the garage. I would like the car to stop at 15" from the wall every time I pull into the garage. As it is now I need to creep up to the limit...

    Summon and Homelink question

    Hello everyone, I like the fact summon opens the garage door automatically when the car gets out of the garage, but I don't want summon to close it once the car has been taken out. Is there a way to avoid that? Thank you in advance to anyone!

    Supercharger - Chattanooga, TN

    http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/2014/may/21/chattanooga-on-teslas-supercharger-radar/ Chattanooga is a perfect place for a Supercharger; but there's nothing at the airport. Interesting, since Chattanooga is "end of 2015" on Tesla's map.

    What other vehicles do you have in your garage?

    It didn't take long to notice that a lot of Tesla owners have owned and/or currently own some pretty cool cars. I've personally owned some really fun 4x4's, old Japanese sports cars, and a few bikes. :smile: Here a couple of them! What else is lurking in your garage?? :wink:
