All recent Tesla vehicles include a powered trunk

The Tesla 2022.16.0.2 update includes a fix for power trunk issues

Some Tesla owners have recently had a problem with their powered trunk.

In some cases, owners have reported that their powered box shuts down before closing completely.

Similar to the tweak feature in electric windows, the stem problem appears to be related to the stem detecting an object in its path and stopping closing prematurely.

According to user Kenners on the Telsa Motor Club forum, according to the Tesla service, the trunk issue is due to a software issue and the fix is ​​included in the 2022.16 update.

“Proper diagnosis of the concerns you have about your trunk and can confirm that this is a firmware issue. The powered trunk has been programmed to measure amperage/resistance to determine whether or not it comes into contact with an obstacle, the programming has been found to be very sensitive and therefore stops Motion unexpectedly as it is suspected that it has touched something.Our engineers are working on a solution and have reported improvements to the 2022.16 firmware level, which will be rolled out to your vehicle in due course.We apologize for any inconvenience this issue caused, please let us know if I was happy to close the reservation.”

Tip: For owners who own an electrical box, you can adjust the maximum height that the box opens. This can be useful to prevent the trunk from reaching the top of the garage, or to make it easier to access when closed.

The first signals of 2022.16 were seen about a week ago, but 2022.16.0.2 is now starting to appear on a larger scale. Like other updates, it may be several weeks before everyone receives 2022.16.

The 2022.16 update also includes other features such as saving music service credentials to your driver profile, and improvements to how your vehicle calculates how much charge is left when you reach your destination.

The Tesla app can now display vehicle recalls

Like other automakers, Tesla issues vehicle recalls (many of which involve minor software modifications) when a vehicle feature or hardware change needs to be done.

With the latest app update (version 4.9), Twitter user Tesla_App_iOSNote that Tesla has added a new API that can display vehicle recall information.

The Tesla app doesn’t seem to be using this new API yet, but only a couple of days later it can now be seen in the service area of ​​the app.

The Service section of the application is loaded via a webview, which is basically a web page that the application loads when the user navigates to that section.

This allows Tesla to make changes to this section without having to update the app to display new information.

Tesla, along with other car manufacturers, maintains a database of applicable recalls based on each vehicle’s VIN, so Tesla already has all the information needed to display recalls for your specific vehicle.

in the app

The Tesla app can now display vehicle recalls

When you go to the Service section, Tesla will list any available recalls for your vehicle.

Tapping on an individual summons gives you additional information.

Tesla also has a Learn More button that links to the Tesla website, where they display detailed information about the selected recall.


Since the feature appears to have been rolled out recently, it is not yet clear whether Tesla will send an immediate notification to the owner when a new recall is issued.

The notice may prompt the user to schedule the service for critical recalls.

What is currently unknown is whether software recalls will also be included in the app, or if they will be limited to callbacks that require Tesla service.

Some software-based recalls, such as removing the Boombox while driving, are shown in the vehicle’s release notes.

This is a welcome new feature in the Tesla app that makes managing recalls simple and convenient.

Now you can easily look at or confirm if there are any pending recalls with just a few clicks.

The feature is available on iOS and Android.

It seems that this feature may not be available in every region yet, as some users like it Tesla China Rider They don’t see it available in the app yet.

Tesla has a history of testing new features in select markets before launching them on a large scale. Hopefully that will be the case with this feature as well.

New car models used in FSD Beta 10.12 . visualization

The first signs of Tesla’s FSD Beta 10.12 finally surfaced yesterday when Tesla employees started receiving the internal beta.

The internal beta was initially a build of 2022.12.3.10, but it appears that Tesla has already released an update with version 2022.12.3.15 (FSD Beta 10.12.1).

It is not yet clear if this is the exact version that will be rolled out to public testers or if additional updates will be made.

If Tesla finds any major issues, they’ll need to fix them before rolling out the update to third-party testers.

New Car Models

New Car Models

FSD Beta 10.12 introduces new car models for almost every type of vehicle.

Some vehicles have been completely redesigned and are more detailed and realistic in appearance than previous models.

For example, the sedan now has wheels, windows and a glass roof, rather than the previous streamlined KeyFob-style look.

New brake lights

Although brake lights were already on display as of Beta 9.0, Tesla now offers a third brake light as well, which has been required in the United States since 1986.

open doors

FSD Beta 10.12 will now show the doors open

FSD Betas have been able to detect, park, or roam vehicles with open doors for a while now, but Tesla will now display open doors in visualization.

When the surrounding car door is open, the 3D model will also display the open door and highlight the door in orange.

turn signals

FSD Beta now displays turn signals

Elon said back in the summer of 2021 that Tesla would detect and respond to car turn signals, hand gestures, and more to come.

With this release, the FSD Beta now detects and visualizes turn signals as well as brake lights.

The car will reportedly react to the turn signals it has detected as well, helping to understand the intentions of other vehicles.

Two steps forward, one step back

The last major release of the FSD Beta was version 10.11, which was first seen over two months ago.

Tesla has been on beta 10.12 for a while now, and the amount of changes included in this update is huge according to Elon.

Musk said that given the number of changes in this beta build, we can expect two steps forward and one step back.

This is a great one! Expect some two steps forward, one step back. This would be great on bitmap versions, thus ~10.12.2 or 10.13 for a wider beta.

– Elon Musk

There will be some issues, and in certain cases FSD may roll back.

Tesla plans to fix any issues that arise with minor revisions to this release. We expect to see additional FSD Beta 10.12 releases such as 10.12.1 and 10.12.2 in the coming weeks.

Existing beta testers

As we’ve seen in other recent betas, it may take some time for all current beta testers to receive this latest beta.

With the 10.11 beta, we saw two revisions before the majority of our testers even received the beta. We may see a similar situation with this update, given the amount of changes that have been made.

If you are a current beta tester, you may wait a couple of weeks before getting this updated FSD Beta.

Additional testers

There have been no signs of Tesla adding additional beta testers in the US since late 2021.

Elon previously said he hopes Tesla can add more beta testers with a safety score of 95 or higher in post-beta reviews of 10.12.

Interpretation of the 10.12 beta release notes

We have the technical release notes for FSD Beta 10.12, but Reddit user asimo3089 did a great job interpreting the release notes to give us a better understanding of what Tesla has improved in this update.

1. Your vehicle better understands what is a drivable and non-driving space. This makes him more confident in easy situations and more capable in difficult situations. Your car can now also use averages in hard left turns, and accelerate faster to complete turns.

2. Your car now has a better idea of ​​what is blocking the camera’s view. Crawling should be less terrifying.

3. Improved route predictions for where others are on the road. This gives your car better cornering decisions.

4. Sounds like: Your car will drive itself to safety more smoothly if your car finds itself somewhere it shouldn’t be. better solve the problem?

5. Your car should better see the lanes on the road, and how many lanes there are on the road, thanks to the new data. This gives better turn confidence and track layout during the bend.

6. Your car is now trained on 180,000 new sections of what driveways look like.

7. Your vehicle is less likely to explode from the brakes in a yellow light scenario, and has a better understanding of lane steering when passing through an intersection.

8. Road edges and lines are now more precise.

9. Your car now better understands vision from cameras, thanks to 30,000 new videos of training data.

10. The speeds of motorcycles, pedestrians and cyclists are now more accurate. In addition, your car now better predicts the direction pedestrians are going.

11. Your car is now less likely to be jammed with parked car and parked car thanks to 41,000 new pieces of training data. This should result in fewer “phantom brakes” or ridiculous lane changes.

12. Your car now understands better things far from you.

13. Your car will plan a better route around the vehicles with the car doors open.

14. Objects other than pedestrians, cyclists, etc. should have more accurate speed predictions.

15. When turning into an adjacent lane, your car will look more forward at its speed. If someone in front of you brakes, your car will handle it more comfortably.

16. Your car is used to predict only the acceleration (not speed) of things that are moving in close proximity. Now your car will predict the acceleration of all moving objects including objects accelerating through your path.

17. New 3D vehicle models on your screen. You will also be shown vehicles with their doors open.

18. Tesla retired some older systems and got two frames per second per camera, which resulted in better performance during autonomous driving.

FSD Beta 10.12 is currently available to employees only, but we may see a broader release in the next couple of days that includes public testers.

However, it may take several weeks before all existing testers receive this update.

More details about this beta version will definitely be revealed in the next few days. Stay tuned for more.
