    Hi, Other than breaking the driver's window, reaching in, and pulling the door handle, is there a way to open my 2020 Tesla Model S driver-side door(s) if you assume there is absolutely no power?

    Door handle glitch

    My driver-side rear door will not fully unlatch (lost of the time) when the front door is open more than a few inches. This occurs because a "sliding" sound (solenoid) that normally is heard from aft of the door (when the presented rear door handle is pulled) does not occur. This is not a...
