    Anyone seen this? My right blinker today has started blinking really fast acting like the the bulb is burnt out, similar to how old school blinkers are. But i checked both front and black blinker. They both work.

    Only the right side is blinking really fast. The left side is normal.

    Dumb auto correct: how to I edit the title to fix blinking

    You can report the post to have a mod fix the title!

    As for the actual issue, you could call national support and see if examining the logs would give any insight.

    Thanks, I do see that now. On mobile, that’s a really small up-arrow. :D

    Lol and still doesn’t say what firmware. Probably the most critical piece of info around here since it changes so much.

    That happened to me when the mobile service replaced my TM3 headlight due to the DRL was dimmer than the other one. The mobile service texted me that he is sending a FW update OTA to fix the blinking problem...and it did!

    I scheduled an appointment with the local Tesla service center yesterday. Today they were reviewing the appointments and manually pushed the 24.1 update to my car. Called me and left a voicemail telling me to update the car software and let them know if it fixed the issue. 3 mins after I completed the update they called back and told me they saw that the updated completed and to check LoL.

    Sure enough the OTA was able to update the headlight firmware. No need to goto the service center.
