My shelf arrived today.
...well it is from California after all. I'm surprised it doesn't have the "contains materials known to cause cancer by the State of California" warning on it too!
So true. I will email Elon and let him know. (PS just kidding)
Shouldn't a similar warning be posted for passengers in the rear-facing seats +/- second row seats ?
Sitting above the electric rotor and all...
Just wondering if medical device testing (pacemakers, ICDs) has been performed in all areas of the car susceptible to carry passengers.
One would assume so, but a man is curious (to paraphrase a character from GOT).
Did you get two warnings? My shelf came with two of the pacemaker/magnet warnings. :tongue:
A buddy of mine has a pacemaker and has been warned about magnetic fields, keeping cell phones in breast pockets etc. I took him for a test drive in my Model S. He survived.
But he may not be pacemaker-dependent (i.e. his heart will keep beating at an adequate rate if his pacemaker malfunctions).
Got this warning with my parcel shelf, as well. It's interesting they've decided only to warn those of us who bought the parcel shelf, considering all Models S have the magnets.
Yeah, but I thought he was going to have a heart attack anyway when I floored it :tongue:
Bringer a strong magnet really clos to a pacemaker will not stop it from working,Tit goes into a "fixed rate modus" . This was a way we tested pacemakers about 20 years ago before we had modern customized device specific programmers.
So don't get any ideas about seating your rich pacemaker dependend childless uncle in the back seat
Regards psirnes (cardiologist, EU Sig 52)
Just one warning. But I don't have a pacemaker (yet).
Unless his PM goes into VOO mode and causes R-on-T with subsequent TDP-VF and asystole ! :biggrin:
Apologies for the cardiology humour, but nice to meet a colleague on the boards Psirnes !
Very good point. What can I use to measure the magnetic field?
That must be where mine went. I got no warnings.
Where is the magnet anyway, I don't see it.
I'm assuming this magnet warning has nothing to do with the motor and Tesla is probably using some neodymium magnets to hold the parcel shelf in place.

The warning has nothing to do with the motor. The motor is magnetically shielded. It says quite clearly in the first sentence "the parcel shelf ledge on your vehicle may contain magnets."
Problem is, while the early versions of the parcel shelf contained magnets (or magnetic metal to adhere to the magnets in the ledge), the newer ones do not. I just received mine and it flops around as I drive over bumps. Not acceptable to me - it's getting returned.
I think that they originally intended the shelf to be held down by magnets, but it's not. There are magnets hidden in the rails that the shelf sits on, but at least with the current design of the shelf, there's no ferrous metal to stick to the magnets.
A warning about magnets with no magnets? I feel much safer.
I'm gonna sue. I didn't get a warning and I didn't get any magnets. Heck of a way to run a RR.
