    Hi all,
    Has anyone encountered a problem with the EZPass transponder not responding going through a too both? Had that problem yesterday. Had to hand it to the Toll Taker for scanning. Booth scanners could not recognize it.

    Thanks,

    Search "EZ-pass", and you should find several threads with all sorts of information.

    Or you could just answer his question by saying Yes, the Model S windshield blocks EZpass signals. Most of us switched to external tags or mounted the transponder on the back of the nosecone.

    What year is your car?

    I have the refresh, and the EZpass works right next to the cameras.

    I didn't just "answer his question" because there is no simple answer. At various times during various build periods people reported no issues with EZ Pass placed in certain locations.

    I wasn't trying to be difficult. I just didn't want to try to summarize several threads and dozens of posts in one post.

    I put mine on the inside of the top left rear window. Works fine but on hot days sometimes the Velcro gives out.

    Both of mine ( IPass and SunPass) are mounted bottom center of back window. Have had no problems with either one.
