    Anyone have the driver door "auto present", or is it "auto open" just stop working?

    2 week update - changed the battery in the FOB that no longer (stopped abruptly after 15 months) auto opens driver door, and still does not work. So FOB #2 works fine, but the FOB I have been using for 15 months without issue, does not auto open door. I know I could just switch FOB's, but...

    Anyone have the driver door "auto present", or is it "auto open" just stop working?

    1 week update - with the backup key FOB, everything works fine. So it is it the battery on the Keyfob I have been using for 15 months? And if it is the battery, why does everything else work, except the auto - door open? I guess I'll get a new battery and see.

    Anyone have the driver door "auto present", or is it "auto open" just stop working?

    Thanks - I do have that option checked off, but no auto open door since Tuesday. It does open mirrors, but no other activity until I get in the car (now that I think about it, it used to open the door and wakeup the car, radio, AC, etc...).

    Anyone have the driver door "auto present", or is it "auto open" just stop working?

    The auto door open for the driver based on the key fob stopped working. Has worked flawlessly since March 2020 purchase, until 2 days ago it just stopped. I kind of liked the MX opening the door for me! I cant find a setting for it, I do only use 1 FOB (the are tucked away for safe keeping)...

    Navigation issue with Easy Pass lanes - always wants to re-route me through the toll booth

    Hmmm that makes sense - a lot easier than playing the blinker on/off game. Will do that from now on. But shouldn't the system know to route me through the easy pass lane (after being told of course) - there is a button to "Use HOV lanes", should also be one to use Speed Pass (or other term)...

    Navigation issue with Easy Pass lanes - always wants to re-route me through the toll booth

    Kind of annoying (unless I am missing a setting) that while navigating, and approaching tolls with easy pass lanes vs booths, it always puts on the blinker to change lanes to the toll booth side, instead of maintaining my route through easy pass lanes. Example: I am Navigating on auto pilot...

    Software feature suggestion for Keyless Drive (remote start)

    I would like to use the Keyless Drive feature more and have a simple software suggestion to make it more usable. Currently, when you enable keyless drive, the app (phone app) confirms your request, then gives you 2 minutes to get in the vehicle and drive. But each time you stop, you need to...

    Unresponsive driver window. Reset options?

    How about a window position reset? Press down button and hold for 10 seconds. Press up button and hold for 10 seconds. Press down button and hold for 10 seconds.

    Could new Yoke Wheel be retrofit to back models? And would you want to?

    It would appear to me they could (for a price) retrofit the new yoke steering & associated software & controls to earlier models. Any reason why they wouldn't be able to? Also, if so, do you think you would be interested? I've noticed I keep my hand on the top of my wheel a very large...

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    I don't believe (and hope I am proven wrong!) that the current Model X uses bluetooth to connect the phone as a key (though i am aware the Model Y does). I have twice been stranded while I assume the Tesla Network was temporarily down, and could not start my car for 15 - 30 minutes (until the...

    Sound System - How?

    Depending on the service I use, my 2020 MX does do that (remembers last station always, often picks up where the song left off).

    GPS Frozen?

    ShawnA - that worked! Thank you very much (I'm sure Scottf200's idea would have worked as well, but I didn't want to mess with disconnecting the battery, etc). Meanwhile, service is still trying to figure it out! I will let them know what worked, and will cancel my mobile appointment - thanks...

    GPS Frozen?

    I have done the dual scroll wheel resets 3 times, and the "Turn System Off" one once. Still frozen! Now realize I can't use the homeland either (as the GPS thinks I am 30 miles away!).

    GPS Frozen?

    Any advice on how to reset? GPS froze yesterday while driving in AP mode. Received message saying auto pilot unavailable for remainder of the trip, and GPS has stayed at that location since. App shows vehicle at that location as well. Can’t use summon (too far away). Can’t navigate (start...

    Inside wheel/tire damage on both Front and Back Passenger Side wheels

    Anyone else experienced this? Just had snow tires put on my 2020 X, 7,000 miles, and both passenger side wheels and tires have severe damage (could not be seen from outside). I have never put it through a car wash, and can not explain how this could have happened while in my possession, so I...

    Raven (non Performance) real world range?

    You will not be able to do a round trip (Boston to NYC and back to Boston) without stopping at a super chargers (actually 3 stops). A quick round trip check of a route planner (with a 2020 Model X, at typical highway speeds, 1 passenger, starting at 100% charge) would take 8hrs 11minutes, with...

    Phantom hard braking on autopilot

    I accept that we are running Beta, so it is not perfect yet. I have noticed it happens to me most often while passing a truck to my immediate right lane. It is almost predictable for me now, as I pass 1/2 to 3/4's past a truck, and mostly when they move towards my lane, the phantom brake hits...

    Driver side window would not close for 10 minutes after 2020.36 update...but eventually did.

    Tested window this morning and it worked fine. Not sure what the issue was, I hope It doesn't happen again! I did read somewhere that you can re-set (calibrate?) the window by holding button does for 10 seconds, then holding it up for 10 seconds, then holding it down again for 10 seconds.

    Driver side window would not close for 10 minutes after 2020.36 update...but eventually did.

    Forgot to mention I did do this reset while driving - it did not work. While resetting, I also tried to close the window a bunch of times (window buttons do operate while reset is in progress).

    Driver side window would not close for 10 minutes after 2020.36 update...but eventually did.

    I tried that, let window open all the way, and then hold the button in the up position (and hold it), but the window would still go up to about a half inch from closing, then immediately reverse down to 2/3rds open.

    Driver side window would not close for 10 minutes after 2020.36 update...but eventually did.

    First drive after 2020.36 update to my March 2020 MX. Of course, it's raining for the first time in 90 days here in NH. I lowered the windows to get some air while I reset the AC, and the driver side window would not close: I would press the auto close. Window would close to within 1/2 inch...

    Is the web browser really bad?

    I almost cant even use the web browser on my new X, as it is so slow. Much faster to just connect my iPad to my phone's LTE. Is it just me or is that normal? I know the vehicle shows an LTE signal, nice and strong. I have also found many websites i can not log in to. I use NEST cameras, but...

    Model X Phone Key via Bluetooth

    Well the data connection thing kind of just happened to me today (1st time since March purchase). Around 1pm, Eastern time, my phone would don't connect to my Tesla, and I was in effect stranded. I had a good signal, and the Tesla was in a spot I have been many times, but the phone APP stayed...

    Model X Phone Key via Bluetooth

    Also, you do not need an apple shortcut to run the MX without a fob. You can just go to the Tesla App on your phone, and press the round "keys" icon, which enables keyless driving for your Tesla. Just open the app, press the button, and your X will engage.

    Model X Phone Key via Bluetooth

    I downloaded the "Tesla Remote" app to my iPhone (because apple's shortcuts app can access commands from this app). Then you create a shortcut (mine is called "Start my Tesla", because the name of your apple short cut is also the siri command to launch it). The Shortcut logic looks like this...

    Model X Phone Key via Bluetooth

    I have a 2020 MX - bluetooth does not work in place of fob for the X, but you can start and operate it with your phone (using various Apps), and leaving your key fob at home. I do this 90% of the time. I use a shortcut via siri mostly, I just say "start my tesla" and the shortcut: 1. checks...

    The Model X Car Alarm is loud!

    I used the phone to start the car (keyless drive), and the alarm went off (unless you are asking if you can disable the alarm in advance?). I do think having the FOB would be quicker, and actually would cause less false alarms than using the "keyless drive" on the app. Better be careful with...

    The Model X Car Alarm is loud!

    Funny Story - I don't cary my FOB (I use phone and Apple watch for access and starting, etc). I needed to double park outside a hotel to run in and get my credit card (which i had left inside accidentally). I jumped out and left my phone in the car, with my wife in the passenger seat. When I...

    2020.28.5

    You can override the +5 by pressing the accelerator pedal. It is beta mode, so we are helping the system "learn". I run in AP whenever possible, and generally press the accelerator pedal to keep up with traffic. I didi note it piloted a little worse with this update, in areas I drive often...

    2020 X, Front Passenger door only opens to 1/2 inch

    Anyone have any advice on why my passenger front door only opens to about 1/2 inch now? From outside (pressing door handle) or using the display, door only opens a crack. Can then pull it open (but its stiff). Didn't start this way - it worked normally a few weeks ago. Made an appointment...

    Mobile App controls - unlock, frunk, etc.

    You can use the app and iPhone to drive without a FOB. Choose the middle icon with the set of keys in the circle - "keyless driving". Once authenticated, gives you like a minute to start driving - no FOB needed.

    Great shortcut for MX Iphone/Apple Watch and start w/out key (no FOB)

    So, without a key FOB you would be able to run the Apple shortcuts 3 ways: 1. You can place the shortcut on your home screen of the iPhone, So open your phone, and press the icon, and the shortcut(s) run. 2. You can use Siri on your phone to run the shortcut(s). "Hey Siri, start my car" 3. You...

    With the App and Apple Siri Shortcut I created on my iPhone, (above), I was able to do the following: Without a key FOB or iPhone, and wearing only my Apple Watch, I lifted my arm and said "Start My Car", while heading to my garage. The Charging door unlocked, the Cooling started, the drivers...

    Great shortcut for MX Iphone/Apple Watch and start w/out key (no FOB)

    Right - not locked when on my wrist. I just pull up my arm and say "Start my Car". Also, added "open front" and "open back" for trunk and truck as shortcuts. So just pull up my arm and say "open front" and the trunk opens. Last week I went out with just my Apple Watch (no FOB or phone)...

    Sure! The App you download is Remote for Tesla ($19.95). Log in w/ your Tesla credentials. Then use the apple app "Shortcut" to create a new shortcut. (Name it "start my car"). Hit the plus sign to add a step. Choose "Apps", then "Tesla Remote", then "Awaken Tesla". Add another step (plus...

    Great shortcut for MX Iphone/Apple Watch and start w/out key (no FOB)

    We were discussing the start with phone vs FOB on a different thread, and I complained about the number of steps I need to use on the app (First, unlock the charge port, then unlock the doors, then enable start with phone). Using the app "Remote for Tesla" on the iPhone, I set up a Shortcut...

    If you use the Tesla App to access/drive your X...

    Why wouldn't the X and S work the same way as the 3 and Y? Sounds like a better system - I would love to not have to carry the FOB.

    If you use the Tesla App to access/drive your X...

    Does the M3/Y phone app work differently then described here? Different than the X?
