    Unswitched power

    I'm trying to read up on unswitched 12V power options. What I'm seeing boils down to: tap one of a variety of unswitched 12V power sources throughout the car use the OBDII receptacle replace the relay for the 12V power outlet with a straight connector Of those, the first one doesn't appeal...

    Front Left USB Dead from factory?

    Hi all, I just picked up my new SR+ a few days ago. When I was leaving the Tesla dealership I went to plug in my phone to charge it and the front left USB port wasn't charging my phone. The front right one works. Is this normal? My car is running v2019.40.2. Any suggestions that don't...

    I was looking for something similar to this, does anyone know of a similar product or guide for providing more power than the existing ports do? My current setup is a taptes dual wireless charger for my phone, and a 1-to-2 usb splitter thing for the flash drive for dashcam. When playing...

    Sentry Mode & USB Power

    Hopefully an easy question.... When Sentry Mode is active, are the front two USB ports powered all the time or just when it needs to save an event?

    Designing a new USB Hub for Model 3

    Hi, I'm a month old SR+ owner. I really like how Tesla has data enabled front USB ports for connecting your phone or storage device (for Sentry). However I realized that the front USB ports do not allow for fast charging (Limited to USB 2.0 standards of 0.5A each). I recently came across the...

    New Model 3 front USB ports no power and data w/direct wired

    Well I don’t know what to say, I was pretty happy that the new software upgrade fixed my autopilot calibration issue (New Model 3 autopilot calibration stuck at ~3% after 151 mixed miles), but then I found my front USB ports do not work, at all. This is my first try on front USB ports since I...

    Splitter Cable for both USB Dashcam and Charge Phone

    Got V9 for my Model 3 this morning - sweet! With my family, having the ability to charge two phones at once in the front is nice. I was wondering if I could use a USB splitter cable to have BOTH the USB storage for the dashcam AND power the second port for charging. I am looking at something...

    Front USB charging problems

    I can't seem to get the front USB ports to charge... it charges for a few seconds, then stops, then charges, then stops, then charges, then stops... like the USB supply in the car is so appallingly wimpy that charging a phone overloads it. First tried it with an Anker PowerLine 1-foot MicroUSB...

    USB Ports 3.0?

    Are the 2016 MS with face lift - USB port 3.0? or are we still kicking with 2.0? I just ask because I want to load all my music on my flash drive -- trying to figure out how to structure it and which flash drive to get...

    Compact and Durable USB Hubs and Power Splitters

    I am looking for compact and durable USB hubs and power splitters for the Model S. What are your experiences with products that work and don't work? I have been using a "Cute USB Mini 2-Port USB 2.0 2-Port Power Only Splitter" (you can find them on Amazon and eBay) for just about 11 months. The...

    4G in my model S - OK, not really, but good workaround

    Since we received the 5.8 update and with it Wi-Fi access, I decided to try an experiment. I took my iPhone 5, running under Verizon's 4G network, and placed it in personal hotspot mode. I plugged it into my MS' USB port for continuous power, then connected the MS to my newly-created hotspot's...
