For those that have a Tesla Car & HA integration or similar

I feel bad for you, but somewhat good for me that it may not be something I did wrong.
This is the log

Something to do with authentication, inserting an e key via Tessie. It hasn’t worked for me yet.

Has anyone been able to adjust the heater setting for recycle/fresh? We have a road tunnel where you get a lot of diesel fumes if you leave it on “fresh”. Love to be able to use GPS to automatically switch to recycle just before we enter the tunnel, but that setting doesn’t seem to be exposed in the API.

I created an automation to automatically stop charging and unlock the charger port when the car is fully charged, is at home and the front door of the house is opened.

I don’t have a Tesla charger so it lacks the button on top to disconnect the charger by pressing it. Meaning that you have to use the tesla display or app to disconnect the charger. Also, there is no native option to unlock the charger cable when it is fully charged. So now, as long as the location is “home” and the battery raw SoC is 100, the charger disconnects when the front door is opened.

This is mostly a WAF initiated automation to accept the car as part of the family :slight_smile:

Hi @Kvessen how are you connecting HA to your Tesla? The reason I am asking is because my Tesla Integration doesn’t allow me to send commands to the car or to Tesla. It only reads car’s stuff. I can see many Car’s sensors but I can’t send commands back to the car.

yes that is my case as well. For the past few months I can on only READ data from the car.

There is a new authentication method for the Tesla API.

& @EndUser I assume you are using the Tessie integration. If so you need to add an authentication virtual key to

I did not know that Tessie integration but I am not inclined to pay $ 150/yr

Tessie is the home assistant integration for Tesla cars. What are you using?

If you are using this GitHub - alandtse/tesla: Tesla custom integration for Home Assistant. This requires a refresh token be generated by third-party apps to login. there are instructions for using the fleet API right there.

Hi there,

I use this integration. Works great and I can push these kind of commands to the car perfectly fine. Releases · alandtse/tesla · GitHub
