Firmware 4.4

Someone at is posting that they received 4.4 this morning but can't tell any difference.

Any one else get the update? Any version notes?

Mine is scheduled to load tonight. I'll let you know.

Yeah I got an update notice today, will load tonight.

jeez...i just uploaded v4.3

I'm still waiting for v4.3!

I had my first problem with my car yesterday. The front passenger door popped open when I pushed the park button. When I called Tesla service, I told them about the problem and also said I'm running the latest (.45) version of the 4.3 firmware. He said he's pretty sure it's a software problem, so they're going to give me an update in additional to inspecting the hardware at the service center.

I just installed 4.4
No differences observed from 4.3 by me
Release notes appear the same as 4.3

Got the car yesterday and and notice for update today. Not sure what version it will be.

I've had my car for three weeks. On Wednesday I called about side mirror auto-tilt on reverse not working (it has never worked, but I thought at first it was user error), and they sent me an update that night. Did not fix the problem. Today I got a notice for still another update that I'm running tonight. Hope it fixes my problem because I have to back into a narrow driveway to get the charging port within range of the outlet, so auto tilt would be most helpful.

I have been running on version 4.2 for a whole month now, and no problems :))

@Jill S - are you aware that you have to set the mirrors first? Put the car in reverse, put your mirrors where you want them, then save your profile. Your profile will now have two mirror settings, one for drive and one for reverse and it will change as you alter direction. I hope this works for you.

@jill s - be sure you have the option set for that to happen as well... its a configuration setting

(85, tech package)Installed 4.3 update .45 last week which supposedly would correct the walk-away door lock and auto present handles issues I had after installing 4.3. Corrected the problem for two days but then auto present mysteriously happened after I left the car leaving the door handles out, lighted and the car unlocked. Service Center did not have a fix so I've turned off the auto present and walk-away functions and using the fob to open and lock the car. Not a big issue, hopefully 4.4 will address the problem.

4.4 is out, but what it does is a secret.

Early installs of 4.3 had same release notes as 4.2.

I had 4.2 when I picked up the car two weeks ago. Last night I got the update and downloaded 4.4. I apparently completely skipped 4.3. Release notes appear to be the same as others have mentioned for 4.3. At least now I have scheduled charging!

Does scheduled charging work if you're using a Chargepoint station or is it likely to timeout and be unavailable at a future scheduled time? Currently, I receive text messages when the battery is charged and only drawing very little power, but this can go on for hours without the charger actually shutting off.

I got the 4.3 download a week ago. It kept failing to install until 2 nights ago when it finally installed successfully. Not sure if this is related to the upgrade, but there was a noticeable humming noise coming from the back of the car when I was on the freeway driving between 65 and 75 mph. I only hear this when driving on the freeway. Prior to 4.3, I had not noticed this noise. My Tesla is a S85 with the tech package. Has anyone else noticed this humming noise?

That same day, I got the notice for 4.4 which installed last night. The humming noise is still there. I don't see any difference in the release notes between 4.3 and 4.4.

I've noticed that low level humming, the pitch of which is directly speed related, since early on. I didn't remember hearing it on the first day, but I put no stock in my preceptive abilities of that day, because my head was in the clouds. I was going to have it checked out - just in case it is something, but haven't got around to it yet. It doesn't worry me much. Mine is a 60, V 4.2

I got 4.4 last night. It does seem to be identical to 4.3--the only change seems to be support for scheduled charging. After browsing another thread about driver profiles, I suspect 4.4 might be for people who need partial support of driver profiles.
I did not get the tech package. I have driver profiles that can store the seat and steering wheel position. My profiles don't store the mirror positions :(. The fancy mirror upgrades are needed for that and some early buyers got them, and some didn't. It also means my mirrors don't rotate downward when I go into reverse. :( I wish they had advertised that, or I had noticed that was part of the tech package.
Going forward, I understand that driver profiles will be available only with the tech package, avoiding this partial profile stuff. I was actually worried I might lose my seat/steering profile settings with new software updates.
Thus my suspicion that they created a special version scheduled charging for cars like mine. Just a guess.

Just received my update...doing it right now.
My previous update was I look forward to see what the new one brings.

Just competed the 4.4 update. It took 19 min.
No apparent changes to 4.3. Still great to perform an update.

Got mine yesterday night. Today I noticed something strange- I washed my car, and was wiping the center screen, when I hit the front defogger. I turned it off, drove a bit into the garage and parked,. I opened the door and heard a drone like that from a motor. It was not the AC, as it was off. So I turned the climate control off, and there was a loud pop and the sound of air rushing out, like the way big rigs o sometimes with their air brakes.

Everything seems normal, but I never heard my car make a sound like a big rig parking before.

The droning sound went away as I turned off the climate control, BTW, and simultaneously three was the pop and whoosh sound...

Update was done and got 4.4. Release notes talk about timed charging which I already had on 4.3
No issues to report so far except a freeze on Slacker search which needed a CTRL ALT DEL

Thanks, guys, but I know that I have to put the car in reverse, set mirrors lower, and save my profile; and I do have the auto-tilt on reverse set as well. Still not working after last night's update. Called support again, and the guy I got said he thought auto-tilt was only available with the tech package and he would have to have someone who knows what they're doing call me on Monday.


There is indirect mention in various threads of auto tilt problems. I have 2012 reservation textile seats with tech package and have never had auto tilt and there is no button to turn it on in my control menu. I've read others mention it's a problem in textile seat cars and has been fixed by a visit to a service center. I'm still on 4.2 (!) and was hoping the update would fix this problem.

@hf: I have leather and I do have the option to enable on the control menu, so I seem to have a different issue.

Is update 4.4 supposed to re-enable sleep mode? I'd like to be able to worry less about losing so much charge while the car sits in the parking lot at work. :-)

@Jewsh, nobody has reported the return of sleep just yet. :-(

TM -- urgent! Your cars and their owners are suffering from sleep deprivation, a very serious medical condition. Only you can supply the cure.
