Vehicle Option codes

splee 2 years ago updated 2 years ago 5

Can you confirm if you are pulling the vehicle option codes from the vehicle itself? Reason I ask is that my vehicle was supposed to be built with APH3 option (supposedly AP 2.5 HW) but you are showing APH2 option in my option code area.

Yes, they come directly from the API.  I've tried looking to see if I could break out software updates for 2.5 but so far I can't tell any differences in the option codes between 2 and 2.5,

Prior to my car being built, the vehicle spec codes for Auto Pilot HW changed from APH2 to APH3, and we all presumed that it represented HW 2.5. The codes stayed the same as it was built but are not available anymore on MyTesla. So I'm surprised to see it still show up as APH2 via the API. Do you see any recent vehicle option codes that show up as APH3? On model S, it should be VINs around 2100xx onwards or built from Sept onwards...

Looks like there are vehicles reporting APH3 now.  I just changed the software page to reflect them.  Looks like your is as well.

My MS has a build date of 9/2017 and should have AP 2.5 but is being listed as 2.0

Yes, it seems there were quite a few cars built AFTER the APH3 option started to appear that seem to be built with the APH2 option. They were built AFTER and have VINS higher than many AP 2.5 cars, but report as AP 2.0 cars. You can check this in the firmware listings for the 2017.42.1 cars, which are only AP 2.0 and AP 2.5 cars and see that there are quite a few AP 2.0 cars that have higher VINs than AP 2.5 cars. The only way for sure to determine what you have requires disassembly....
