    Charging stopped red ring on mobile connector

    My 2015 P85D (transformed to a P90D with replacement battery Jan. 2020) was charging on the mobile connector at 110V and stopped suddenly in the middle of the night. It had the red ring on the car and red indicator. When unplugging and replugging, I get the behavior of a little dance of red ring...

    Strange low frequency rumbling sounds.

    Hi all, This is my first post on the forums as I just received my 2021 Model 3 SR+ last week. So far I absolutely love it, but have noticed a strange intermittent low frequency rumbling coming from the car while in park, and while driving. The best way to describe the sound is a 2 second...

    Dirt in model 3

    Hi! I've done a few tesla video to YouTube, and I noticed that the car's chassis collects a lot of sand. I drive 99% on asphalt, not offroading. This is not a critique of tesla, but good to be aware of

    Weak Seat Motors

    Howdy y'all! I recently did a test drive of a Model Y. Amazing vehicle, but I was surprised and disappointed to find out that the seat motors for both driver and passenger are too weak to adjust the seat without me lifting myself off of them. I am a large dude (350). I've never had this problem...

    I took delievery of a new MY today!

    I'm so excited to get my first Tesla. I've been wanting one for years (and years) and was finally able to make it happen. My son and I went over (almost) everything and apart from some minor scratches / paint issues, it was great. We drove it home (2 hrs) without any squeaks or groans or...

    Autopilot toont irritant gedrag..

    Ik rij in een Tesla model S 2018 FSD HW2.5 (Binnenkort 3.0). Mijn probleem is wanneer ik achter een vrachtwagen rij op de snelweg met Autopilot aan, lijkt de auto na een aantal minuten snelheid te minderen en daarna weer 'gas' bij te geven.. Scenario: Ik rij 85kmph achter een vrachtwagen op...

    If I find issues during pick up. What do I do?

    I been hearing a lot of buyers picking up their newly purchased Model Y and finding issues with the car. They either find them during inspection or after they take it home. I ordered a Model Y and I’m a bit scared that I will find problems. I’m going to create a list known problems and go...

    Delivery Rejection - At least 18 issues found

    Hi all. First post. Wish it was a more positive one. Looking for advice / suggestions on what to do.... I had to reject collecting my Performance Model 3 yesterday because I found 18 issues with the car and they couldn't confirm they would fix them before I drove away. After asking around it...

    Side mirror won't hold adjustment

    The driver's side mirror on my Model 3 was replaced by a Tesla authorized repair center, after it was damaged when I was side-swiped by a pickup truck. Prior to repair, adjustments made to the mirror position held fine. Since the repair, the mirror gradually sags over about a 2 week period...

    Unable to schedule service due to existing phantom appointment

    The only way to schedule service these days is through the app. When I go to "Schedule Service", it shows an appointment for a service I did back in November. I'm not sure why it's still showing there, but the net result is that I am unable to schedule a new one. On that same page, a button...

    Samsung phone issues

    I have tried a Note 8, S9, S10, and Note 10 with my Model 3. All have Bluetooth issues. They fail with proximity unlock leaving me standing in the rain. When on a call and entering the vehicle they fail to properly handoff audio (mainly mic transfer). However, two different Pixel 3 XLs and a...

    Streaming issues

    Anybody else having issues with the streaming from Slacker? In the last 4 months or so the same songs keep skipping part way through. One in particular always has the same problem every time that is very obvious and I'm hoping I can get some feedback on this. The song is Money by Pink Floyd...

    HELP - fans running constantly overnight

    I unplugged my car around 11 p.m. yesterday and it was making a humming or whirring noise. Looking online it sounds like this is the car sucking in air to cool the battery. Seemed odd to me given that it’s only ~14 Celsius in the evening here but if it stopped soon then whatever. I checked the...

    Stuttering Audio/Low FPS Rear Camera/Stuttering Alert Tones

    Hey - New M3 SR+ owner here in the UK. I am on 2019.28.3 fd63a5e. I'm having a lot of trouble with my the infotainment system right now and the issues all seem to be interconnected. It feels like when you're running an iPhone on beta software and it just gets too overloaded or an old computer...

    MASTER THREAD: Jack Points — location, use, damage, pads, etc.

    Model S and X have rectangular lifting pads with 3 holes and they are located on the outer edge. Model 3 Jack Points look different (triangular with 1 hole?) and they are not located anywhere near the outer edge but rather more inward. Would anyone please take a picture because the drawing is...

    2019.12.1.2 Update Problem with Sentry Mode

    I usually turn Sentry Mode on when parking our Model 3. The latest update to 2019.12.1.2 appears to have problems when Sentry Mode is active. I've been getting notifications on the app that an update is available and it will take 25 minutes. I've told it several times to install but the install...

    Car heating up when parked upwards of 90 degrees farenheit

    I have a Model 3 LR AWD. The car appears to heat up on some days when parked at work. When I say, heating up, it is sometimes as high as 103F when ambient temperature is sub-freezing. The service center found nothing wrong (but did confirm that the temperature was high). Tesla claims the...

    Updates and Unaware Tesla Owners

    Battery not charging properly

    So before my Model 3 charged to what ever limit I set it to. I dropped the car off at a paint shop to get delivery issues fixed, and they had it for a week and a half. Since the day I picked up my car my battery has been acting up with charging. Before when I set the limit to 90% for example...

    FAIL: Car does not charge 3 phase at home

    Tesla has a simple error. If you charge for example at home from 3 phase, and then one of phases is off (due to breaker for example) then car starts to remember, that this place is a single phase place and does not charge from 3 phases anymore. If I move car to neighbour (30 m distance), or to...

I got in it today and the touchscreen wasn’t turned on and I got the ‘Powering up systems’ HUD message we all know of. Then the Center screen still never turned on?? So I did the restart procedure...

    Radio goes on after ending a phone call -- when it wasn't on before!

    Does anyone else have this problem? I'm in my Model X with the radio OFF. I make a phone call, hang up, and then the radio comes on automatically -- every single time. It is off before I make the call. Sometimes it's very startling because I'm driving and it's loud. The radio will also come...

    Tesla Model 3 Down: Won't Power Up, and is Inaccessible

    This afternoon, I opened my app to check on the Model 3's charge status. I noticed it wasn't updating and hadn't updated since before 7am, about 9 hours earlier. I went out to the car and it was completely "dead." By that I mean unresponsive with no lights or activity. Tesla was originally...

    Issue with Lowering Brackets by Unplugged Performance

    Does your Model X do this?

    When your passenger closes the door after being dropped off for a second and you drive away, does your Model X automatically lock itself? If it doesn’t, there’s a problem. Try it.

    Was shooting a video during roadtrip and came across an Autopilot problem

    I was shooting a video during a road trip and autopilot started constant beeping without the initial warnings... It feels like a bug to me. You can go to around 1'30" directly to see the issue... Shouldn't AP give visual warnings, then single beeps, then double beeps, then the constant beep...

    Supercharge cable button opened another charge port

    I was about to supercharge my Model X, brought the Tesla charge cable close to the port and pushed the button. Not only my charge port, but also the port on a (unoccupied, presumably locked) neighbouring Model S opened up. Did the other owner forget his key in the car? But even then, isn't...

    Feeling misinformed on my CPO order (substantive previous damage) -- what should I do?

    So... the time had finally come. After months of searching EV-CPO and carefully watching all of my custom alerts, I'd found a CPO that matched exactly what I was looking for (the day after it was added). The CPO specialist I'd been working with gave me a call about it as well, saying he thought...

    Surpercharging difficulty for my new 70D

    AM Radio Needs Filter...?

    I listen to several local AM radio sports talk stations here in LA, but with the new S it's almost impossible as the AM radio is picking up so much interference from the internal electric interface of the car. While it can be entertaining for a short bit to hear the frequency sound increase as...
