Parts and Accessories

Parts, Accessories, and Modifications

Use only genuine Tesla parts and accessories. Tesla performs rigorous testing on parts to ensure their suitability, safety, and reliability. Purchase these parts from Tesla, where they can be professionally installed and you can receive expert advice about modifications to Cybertruck. Accessories are available for purchase online at the Tesla Shop. Some accessories may not be available in your market region or compatible with your exact vehicle.

Tesla is unable to assess parts manufactured by other distributors and therefore accepts no responsibility if you use non-Tesla parts on Cybertruck.

Tesla does not accept liability for death, personal injury or damage that occurs if you use or install non-approved accessories or make non-approved modifications.

Body Repairs

If your Cybertruck is in a collision, contact Tesla or a Tesla-approved Body Shop to ensure that it is repaired with genuine Tesla parts. Tesla has selected and approved body shops that meet strict requirements for training, equipment, quality, and customer satisfaction.

Some repair shops and insurance companies might suggest using non-original equipment or salvaged parts to save money. However, these parts may not meet Tesla's high standards for quality, fit, and corrosion resistance. In addition, non-original equipment and salvaged parts (and any damage or failures they might cause) are not covered by the warranty.

Connecting Accessories to the 48V Power Feeds

Cybertruck is equipped with two power feeds. The power feeds provide access to the 48V low voltage system, which can be used to power accessories.

CAUTION
Do not connect a power source (such as a solar panel or external battery) to a power feed. Doing so may damage Cybertruck.
Warning IconA warning icon, calling your attention to a possibly risky situation
Warning
The two power feeds are the only points at which you can connect accessories directly to the low voltage system. Do not use any other low voltage wiring in Cybertruck to power accessories. Doing so can lead to unpredictable or unexpected results (such as a total loss of power steering) and can affect the performance of Cybertruck and the safety of its occupants. Any damage caused by using or installing non-approved parts, or by performing non-approved modifications, is not covered by the warranty. Tapping into the power feeds should only be done by knowledgeable and experienced individuals. Tesla does not accept liability for death, personal injury or damage that occurs if you install accessories using non-approved methods or circuits.

48V Power Feed Specifications

There are two power feeds:

  • One power feed is located on the roof (400W maximum draw).
  • One power feed is located in the powered frunk (400W maximum draw).

Each power feed operates in the following range:

  • Minimum: 28V
  • Nominal: 44–50V
  • Maximum: 58V

Each power feed contains three wires:

Table 1.
Wire Color Function
Red with a blue stripe Positive (+) terminal: Provides 48V power
Green Provides access to the Local Interconnect Network (LIN)

Roof power feed: Black with a blue stripe

Powered frunk power feed: Brown with a blue stripe

Negative (-) terminal: Provides a grounding point
Informational PurposesAn informational icon, calling your attention
Note
The power feeds are designed to stop providing power when current that exceeds the listed specifications is detected. If a power feed unexpectedly stops providing power, reset them by touching Controls > Outlets & Mods > Reset.

CAUTION
If the wires in the vehicle do not match this information, use the mobile app to schedule a service appointment.

Accessing the Power Feed on the Roof

  1. Ensure that Cybertruck is powered off (see Powering Off).
    Warning IconA warning icon, calling your attention to a possibly risky situation
    Warning
    Failure to ensure the vehicle is powered off can result in serious injury. Tesla recommends wearing appropriate personal protective equipment to mitigate any potential for injury.
  2. Locate the strip of applique on the right side of the roof and use a flat, non-marring tool to gently lift under the edge and release the five clips that hold it in place. Lift upwards to remove the applique.
  3. Locate the shrink-wrapped loop of wires. This is the power feed.

  4. Remove the shrink wrap from the power feed, then splice or solder the accessory's wire harness to it.
    Warning IconA warning icon, calling your attention to a possibly risky situation
    Warning
    Use extreme care when accessing the power feed. Assume that the low voltage components of Cybertruck, including all wires and connectors, are always energized. Because the 48V low voltage system operates at a higher voltage than a typical low voltage system, there is an increased risk of personal injury, arcing, or component damage if the low voltage components of Cybertruck are handled improperly.
    Warning IconA warning icon, calling your attention to a possibly risky situation
    CAUTION
    Carefully check the wiring of the accessory and ensure that you are connecting the positive (+) wire of the accessory to the positive wire (red with a blue stripe) of the power feed, and the negative (-) wire of the accessory to ground (black with a blue stripe). See 48V Power Feed Specifications. Accessories without proper power and grounding may not function as expected, and may be damaged as a result.
    Warning IconA warning icon, calling your attention to a possibly risky situation
    CAUTION
    Ensure that the wires are properly insulated (taped or heatshrinked) after splicing or soldering an accessory's wiring to the power feed.
  5. Ensure your accessory or attachment is properly secured to the vehicle.
  6. Replace the roof applique by pressing it into place to ensure that the trim clips are secured.
  7. Power on the vehicle (see Starting and Powering Off) and enable power to the power feed, if desired (see Enabling Power to the Power Feeds).

Accessing the Power Feed in the Powered Frunk

To access the power feed in the powered frunk, you must first remove the frunk lining.

  1. Open the powered frunk (see Powered Frunk).
  2. Ensure that Cybertruck is powered off (see Powering Off).

  4. Remove the two bump stops (one on each side above the headlights) by turning them counterclockwise.
  5. Remove the windshield washer fluid cap.
  6. Using a trim tool or flat, plastic tool, remove the two pieces of trim on the bottom of the frunk lining to expose the four bolts that hold the lining in place.

  12. Replace the powered frunk lining, connect the emergency interior release connector, and replace all fasteners and trim. Torque the bolts to 12 Nm (8.87 ft-lb).
  13. Power on the vehicle (see Starting and Powering Off) and enable power to the power feed, if desired (see Enabling Power to the Power Feeds).

Enabling Power to the Power Feeds

Once you have connected an accessory to a power feed, enable power from the touchscreen. Touch Controls > Outlets & Mods and then touch a power feed on the touchscreen to enable it.

Warning IconA warning icon, calling your attention to a possibly risky situation
CAUTION
Leaving an accessory powered depletes the High Voltage Battery. Power to the power feed shuts off when the capacity of the High Voltage Battery is very low.

By default, the power feeds stop providing power when you exit Cybertruck and close the doors. To instead keep the power feeds on when you leave the vehicle, touch Keep On Cabin and Bed Outlets (see Keep On Cabin and Bed Outlets).

Using RFID Transponders

When attaching an RFID transponder (used by many automated toll systems) inside Cybertruck, place the transponder next to the rear view mirror. This ensures best results and minimizes any obstruction to your driving view. Refer to the RFID manufacturer's instructions for specific placement.
