    Issue With Phone Key Card? Tesla Model 3

    In the past, I was able to unlock my Tesla Model 3 without opening the Tesla app. Recently, I've noticed my phone key card started only letting me open my Tesla while using the app. I'm not sure why all of a sudden it stopped working, has anybody else ever experienced this? Or have any solutions...

    Phone keeps slipping off charger pad

    I just got the Jeda wireless charging pad and installed it. Before, the charging connector kept my phone from slipping completely into the storage space. It just dangled. Now that I have a wireless pad, there is nothing to keep the phone from slipping off the tray into the storage area below...

    If I don't want wireless charging...

    ...can I get a replacement phone platform for my model Y that has the slots for the wired phone charging plug at the bottom? My Pixel 2 doesn't have the Qi charging, but I'd like it to connect to plug in the tray as shown in the manual. Clearly the wireless charging tray doesn't have the slots...

    A Miracle or Business as Usual?

    It is a few weeks ago now, however, it comes to mind often. I went to pick my partner up, from her volunteer job. Road was busy, so I had to park 50 yards away. She had not seen me, so I got out of the car and waved. She still di not see me. I walked towards her and when I was about 10 yards...

    Brand new in box, "never used" Jeda Wireless Charging Pad for the Tesla Model 3. I purchased this charging pad and never read the FAQ where it specifically states it won't work with the QuadLock phone case that I'm using. I don't want to swap phone cases out when I go mountain biking so...

    Undercarriage inspection DIY with phone

    Might be an obvious thing to many but in case it's not, thought I'd mention that you can use an extending Selfie stick with your phone attached to it and put it on Video with the camera recording facing you and easily record the undercarriage of your car this way. No lifts or jacks needed. Sort...

    I've got a new Raven X and I'm experiencing very low Bluetooth phone call volume. In order to hear anything while the car is in motion I need to have the phone volume in the car at 8 or 9.

    So, I went on vacation for two weeks and came back to my car (with new 2019.28.31 software installed) and my car will not unlock or go into gear unless I have my app up and running. I've tried turning on and off my bluetooth on my phone but that doesn't seem to work. The car will lock when I...

    I bought a 6 digit car...not a video game.

    It seems that every other recent update has to do with some enhancement to games or other entertainment distractions. I'd really like Tesla to prioritize updates to vehicle operability...better navigation, autopilot, internet browser, or user interface (how about a trunk release button on the...

    Depending on whose phone the car detects first, will it select the associated driver profile?

    When the model 3 arrives I want to setup both my wife and myself for the phone proximity/Bluetooth unlocking option. If my wife and I both setup our custom profiles with our individual seating and mirror adjustments, does each profile get associated with their respective phone? Depending on...

    Bluetooth problems on phone calls only

    I took delivery of a Model 3 on March 30 of this year. At the time, it was running 2019.5.15, but within a day it had upgraded to 2019.8.4, then 2019.8.5, then 2019.12.1 a couple of days ago, and finally to 2019.12.1.1 today. Through all of this, I've had no problems with Bluetooth connections...

    Bluetooth Kidnapping

    Why is it that my Model X takes over my phone call before I get into the car? Why is it that when I'm at home and walk by the garage door, the car takes over my phone call and I can't hear the caller because I'm NOT IN THE CAR? I'm talking to my doctor or another important caller (or any caller)...

    Before the most recent update, I had an 100% success rate of unlocking the doors using my phone as a key. After this update however, it feels like 70% of the time it fails to unlock, and I turn my bluetooth off and on again and same thing, won't unlock even when under bluetooth it says it's...

    Spouse/partner multiple Tesla app access

    My wife and I are preparing to purchase our second Tesla. My question is for those who have multiple Tesla's: both will be in my name financially, do I create her a "my Tesla" account or do I just use mine and have her logged in on her phone? It is there a setting other than swiping back and...

    Aftermarket idea: Wireless phone charging coil on the Model 3 charging tray

    Just examined that well-designed lift-up charging tray in our Model 3, and there's no question it's thick enough to hold a Qi-type charging coil, or even two. This way you could just place your phone(s) in the charging tray without messing with that little lightning/usb connector if you have a...

    Official USB c for center console?

    I've been to the service center several times, and asked about a USB C adapter for my center console that replaces the lightning one that came with my model s.

    Phone too wide for the bracket? 3D print this!

    I found the smartphone handling in the 2017 mX to be a bit behind the times. Ignoring the lack of USB-C, the most techie car in the world wouldn't even hold my Nexus 6P. However, we live in the golden age of Makers, so I decided to solve the problem myself: These new clips hold thicker and...

    You can adjust the EQ while on a phone call

    I just disdiscovered that you can adjust the EQ while talking on the phone. There was a weird kind of rattling noise while talking on the phone so I thought I'd check to see if I could EQ you out that sound, I presses the EQ button and you can adjust the EQ and turn on or off Dolby surround.

    Blind Holster for phone

    This feature is quite cool, although I fear that I am missing parts. In a ziplock bag I received one of the smaller sidewalls of the holster labelled with a number 1, but they didn't include another of the same sized sidewall for the other side of the holster. Is this normal? Also, I received...

Even selecting it and hitting the Connect button doesn't work. When I delete...

My case is pretty standard - just a rubber grip thingie around the back and edges of the phone. If...
