    Round two: how much control will Tesla have on my manual driving?

    As a potential new Tesla owner I'm disappointed that you deleted my lengthy post... And to accuse me of trolling...? I have legitimate safety concerns before spending fifty thousand dollars on a vehicle that could potentially endanger me or my family with previously unincorporated driving...

    Falcon wing door refuses to open

    Hi everyone, I’m new to these forums so please forgive if this has already been answered. We have had our 2017 MX100D since December 1, 2020 and have loved it! But the passenger side rear door has now decided it doesn‘t want to open - not with the fob, outside handle, inside button or center...

    Confused about charging in off-peak hours

    I'd like to take advantage of off-peak hours for charging, obviously. But... In the settings, there is only one time that you can set; for when the off-peak hours end. But there is no setting for when they start? How does it know when to start charging? If you aren't going to leave until 2...

    Manual Model 3

    Right, so if you’re ever having a moment missing a manual you can get at least the feeling of a manual with Tesla’s great Autopilot. It’s as easy as engaging TACC and sitting behind a manual car in front of you. At a set of lights the Tesla will rocket off behind the manual car only to brake...

    Hi, Im from Sri Lanka and I own a 2015 Tesla Model S 70D. My current software version is v7.1 (2.10.56) and Tesla wont allow any over the air updates as the current version is too old to connect to their servers. Only option is to ship my car to a Tesla service center as we dont have any SCs in...

    Manual door release - OK to use? How to avoid?

    My passengers always seem to use the manual door release, although I have pointed out the correct button. Is there a problem with using the manual release, and if so how to direct them to the correct button?

    Manual Transmission / Stick Drivers

    I currently own a Honda Civic SI 2008 model and have been driving that bad boy for the past 11 years. Anybody else get rid of their stick shift car for a Tesla? I was planning on getting another stick car (VW Arteon), but seeing how two of my coworkers love their Tesla so much, I jumped on the...

    Battery coolant does not need to be replaced for the life of your vehicle

    This was posted in the Model 3 forum (and I mistakenly replied to it), so I thought I'd post it here for Model S owners to see. The new MODEL S OWNER'S MANUAL (2019.16.1.1 dated May 16, 2019) states that "Your Battery coolant does not need to be replaced for the life of your vehicle under most...

    Dry, short and basic walk-through video for Model S and X

    Does anyone know if there is a quick dry and short walk-through video to show the basics of operating and charging a Tesla that I can forward to a friend borrowing my car or a renter on Turo? All the videos I found are either very limited, specific to particular rental services in Canada or...

Twee knopjes voor de falcon wings en bovenop twee keer drukken open en drie keer drukken is dicht en op...

    Limited Context Sensitive Help

    I've only had my model X since Aug and was still getting used to the User Interface (UI) when it was significantly changed with the new software update. Ok, I can live with that. But now I'm starting over again and having to view all the controls many of which I had researched in the manual...

    Version 9 Documentation

    After the Version 9 install, the Owner's Manual and Release Notes are blank, and the browser is inoperative. I could find no description at all regarding the update, until I finally happened on this site - thought it might be helpful to others who may find themselves in the same situation...

    Did your owner's manual disappear?

    Today, I noticed that my Autopark feature did not seem to be working, so I thought, maybe I didn't do something right, so decided to look at the owner's manual. No dice on that....the whole thing is blank... seems to be a table of contents, but no text. The latest Release Notes page is also...
