    Cruise Control vs Auto Pilot

    I've been driving with both and the smoother more relaxing drive is using cruise control. If I use Auto Pilot the ride is jerky, hard braking, and sometimes downright dangerous. Sometime when traveling on a twisty, winding road it waits until the last second to make the curve and it is...

    Model 3 not recognizing cars or stoplights. FDS mode & auto pilot not working

    In early July my 2020 model 3 stopped recognizing other vehicles and traffic signals. As a result, FSD mode and cruise control have also stopped working. Sentry mode was disabled as well. I contacted Tesla for service and after some back and forth they said that the car should fix itself. It did...

    Model 3 Multiple Issues

    I have had my M3 for about 18 months now. I still absolutely love driving it but I am becoming increasingly frustrated with multiple issues. I was not able to find similar threads so I have started a new one. I took it in to a service center once, which is 2 hours away from home, only to be...

    Cruise Control Slows Down on Curves

    While using cruise control, driving on a 60mph highway, the road curves here and there, the car slows below the speed limit to go through many of the curves. The curves are not much, and there is no suggested slower speed limit around the curves, and the car, as I would or do, go through the...

    Teleurstellend ritje Hoofddorp-Eindhoven en terug

    Ik heb dit weekend begin van de middag van Hoofddorp naar Eindhoven (139km) gereden, en 's avonds weer terug. Dit was mijn eerste "lange" rit, en hierbij werd ik toch wel (onaangenaam) verrast door een aantal zaken. -- De verwarming bleef koude lucht blazen, wat ik ook probeerde, en ondanks dat...

    Bug in "dumb" cruise control

    I've owned my M3 LR AWD now for over a year and love it, but I've finally worked out a strange (minor but potentially unsafe) bug with the non-AP cruise control. I've been able to replicate this behaviour several times now. When I am travelling up a hill (around 5% incline) at around 50-60...

    GPS, autosteer, autopilot, cruise control fail

    I have a 2019 model 3 performance w/FSD, picked up 8/2019. This morning, the GPS location stopped updating and my location/arrow was fixed at my home address. Also, the car was unable to display lanes of the road and surrounding cars. Autosteer, autopilot, and even simple cruise control would...

    Driving with intelligent cruise control

    Model 3 owner, going on month 3 now. Love the cruise control, except noticed that very often the vehicle lows down a little as I turn on the turn signal before a lane changes. It is quite annoying, as I'd rather it held the speed or gave it a little boost at that moment. Anyone else experienced...

    Autopilot issues after last update

    I have a Model X 100D with software version 2019.16.3.2 After the last update I have a lot of issues with the autopilot function: When driving in Autopilot, I can no longer change lanes when turning on the indicator. Instead I get a message 'Lane change inhibited'. This makes the autopilot...

    UI Suggestion: Cruise Control without gear lever

    One thing that bugs me about M3 User Interface is the Cruise Control (CC). Whenever I want to restart the CC I need to move my right hand off the steering wheel and reach behind it to slam down the gear lever. One, that is a safety issue as I am supposed to have both hands on the steering...

    Cruise control unavailable [Update: Turning off Sentry Mode fixed the problem]

    The cruise control on my Model 3 quit working today. I now get a message "Cruise control unavailable" each time I attempt to engage cruise control. Tesla support had me "Power Off" the car from the Safety & Security menu. That didn't fix the problem. Cruise control worked during two drives...

    Cruise, autopilot and sentry mode not working

    Recently, I added a USB drive to my model 3 to test the recording of sentry mode. I formatted the drive and created folder structure. It worked however the videos quickly filled up the drive. I deleted the videos and did another test. This time I did not drive my car for a full day...

    Cruise control false positive, "taps" the brake

    Just completed 1,200 mile round trip on interstates (95 and 16) and excellent secondary roads in FL, GA and SC. My car is new, as in 3 weeks and 1,200 miles, Model S, 100D. My previous car was a 2016 Model S 90D that I drove for 34,000 miles and 3 years. When using cruise control and auto steer...

    Auto Pilot and Cruise Control for Software Build 2019.5.15 has Serious Problems

    While the previous software installations on on my Model 3 have worked very well, 2 weeks ago my car updated to build 2019.5.15 and my car's performance immediately changed for the worse. I have cleaned the camera lenses and windshield glass to make sure that is not the issue. Here are the...

    Cruise control activates randomly - Becoming rather dangerous!

    Hi. My Model S Cruise control activates randomly. There appears to be no pattern to when this occurs. - This is becoming rather dangerous as l have a number of near collisions at intersections and roundabouts. Tesla have quite rightly first replaced the steering column assembly however the...

    Is TACC 100 percent reliable?

    I don't think so. Shouldn't the car automatically come to a stop behind another stopped car every time if TACC is engaged. There's definitely been times when I had to break myself when coming up to a line of stopped cars. I'm sure others have had to. Especially when coming around a bend. Just...

    One month ownership update - features that don't get enough attention...!

    It is exactly a month after taking the delivery of my Model 3 LR Dual motor. Before buying decision, I researched, read many blogs and watched youtube videos. It gave me a clear picture of what to expect and how to adopt. But there are many more niceties that are not covered. Thought I will jot...

    Conventional cruise control?

    I'm waiting for an AWD with no EAP, and it just occurred to me that I have no idea if the car is going to have a non-enhanced cruise control function. It's hard to imagine that it wouldn't, but I haven't heard anything about it.

    Strange error messages (or lack of)

    I had a strange problem with my Model 3 last weekend. I was going on a short trip and I loaded up the trunk. Then about 20 minutes later I got in the car and headed to the freeway. After 5 or 10 miles I engaged the cruise control, but I got an error that said (something like) "cruise is not...

    Traffic aware cruise control - initial set speed?

    The Manual states “When driving at your desired speed, set the cruising speed by moving the gear level fully down once then releasing”. But I found that if I am below the speed limit, it usually (but not always) sets to the detected speed limit, not the current (and desired) speed. Once in a...

    Traffic Issues

    I do not have the $4000 AutoPilot feature installed. I do have AutoDrive which has two modes--manual steering and auto-steering. I have tried to use the first mode (MS) on many occasions and have noticed some pretty disturbing issues. I'm wondering if it's just my Model X or a more pervasive...

    Model 3 Traffic Aware Cruise/Autopilot touchscreen controls

    I haven't seen anyone mention this so I thought I would post my observations on the Model 3 TAC/Autopilot touchscreen controls. When the touchscreen shows a speed limit sign, if you tap on the sign in the touchscreen display, the TAC speed will adjust to the speed limit on the sign (plus any...

    Cruise not available

    2017 75D, early May build. Ever since delivery, cruise control (and autopilot) fail to work intermittently, about 1/2 the time overall. When it works, it works from the time the car is started for the entire trip. Other times, from the start of the trip there are no visible lane marking on...

    Cruise Control-Wiper Confusion

    How many times have you turned the wipers on when trying to adjust the following distance for the Traffic Aware Cruise Control? After six months, I still keep doing it. I hope that I'm not the only one.

    Autopilot 2.0 is dangerous

    Hi everyone, So I understand that AP 2.0 is still "beta" which is kind of frustrating to begin with because I purchased my AP 2.0 Model S in December and its almost May and I don't see any light at the end of the tunnel when a fully rolled out version will become available. Anyway now that I...

    Adaptive Cruise Control without AP?

    For those who aren't interested in autopilot, or who think the price for AP is too high, do you think there will be ACC available? Can you currently get a model S or X with ACC and no autopilot? Or do you have to choose between autopilot or plain old fashioned dumb cruise control?

    Can I Please Get Basic Cruise Control Enabled on my New Tesla

    When will something as basic as "normal" cruise control function like it's supposed to on the new 2017 Teslas? Something that's enabled on practically every entry level car, STILL doesn't work...!

    Unexpected speed up in Autopilot

    I have had my Model S accelerate unexpectedly on numerous occasions. My wife has also had the same experiences. The below speed behavior happens consistently on a section of road where the speed limit changes from 65mph to 55mph then to 45mph: @65, autopilot allowed 70, @55, it allowed 60...

    AP2 TACC Shortcomings

    As a new user of TACC, I must say that I'm not impressed. It may be OK for light traffic on a highway, but for heavier Bay Area freeway driving or on city streets, it will, at the least, take some getting used to. Here's why: 1. I'm used to backing off the throttle or starting to brake when I...

    Sorry officer, I wasn't speeding. It was my 17.3.2

    Officer: What do you mean? You were going 35 in a 25 mile zone. Driver: I set my Tesla with the latest cruise control update to go the speed limit. I set the car in the 35 MPH zone. Officer: Yes, but when you entered the 25 MPH zone, your car didn't slow down. Driver: Oh. Sorry about that...

    All or Nothing TACC

    Driving from Las Vegas to Jackson, WY I encountered a typical mix of wintry road conditions. It wasn't long before the nosecone iced over to the point where the forward sensors no longer functioned. So, of course AP and TACC were disabled and that's when I first realized that without TACC...

    Waarom herpakt de cruise control op max power?

    Ik heb inmiddels de eerste 1500km achter de kiezen in m'n 70D, waarvan al een mooi aantal op AutoPilot. Als ik wegens drukte niet kan inhalen en dus op de rechter baan automatisch afrem, gaat het volgens plan. Als ik daarna naar links ga en de ruimte krijg, schiet hij als een raket naar de...

    TACC controls speed on sharp bends with ease

    It has always fascinated me how Tesla automatically slows the car under TACC to enable a safe speed on sharp bends. A particularly good example for me occurs on my regular trip from Melbourne to Portland via Cobden. In the attached video, I have the cruise control set at 100 km/hr and am aware...

    Our First Test Drive With A Model S

    Feature Request: On-Screen Cruise Control

    Someone surely has thought of this and maybe it's illegal, but the idea is to have selectable speeds on the 17" screen once in cruise control. Adjusting the cruise lever up and down half or full clicks is not ideal for adjusting speed. The screen could have buttons for: 45 50 55 60 65 70 75...

    Wiper and Cruise Control Light Question

    Just took delivery of my car 6 days ago. I was wondering if the wiper and cruise control levers are supposed to light up at night? Mine don't except for the orange circle on the cruise control lever once I turn it on.
