    DIY MS key fob programming & software re-installing

    Hi, I recently bought a 2016 Model S and it came with only one key fob. In the interest of having a backup (and because my wife and I both sometimes drive the car), I want to get a new one. I know I can have mobile service out for about $200 with a brand new one including programming, and I...

    Is there a way to claim ownership of a Tesla without having the original owner transferring ownership and I don’t have a key?

    Hi guys, so I was looking at purchasing a Salvage title Tesla Model X and I was wondering if I could get access to the car somehow if I can’t get hold of the original owner and if it doesn’t include a keycard. Is it possible or should I just avoid the ones that don’t include keys?

    Dead Key Fob--Twice

    I had a pair of key fobs on my 2017 MX that worked fine (mostly). Sure, early on, my entire car tried to file for divorce and would not talk to me but after a counseling session at the service center, she never misbehaved again. When I took ownership of my $110,000 2023 MX, I was told I would...

    Anyone with passive key fobs for their 3, y?

    Hi Fellow Tesla folks, Could ya'll run an experiment with me? If you have the newer passive key fob for the model 3, could you try to remove it from active keys on the console and then try to use the key on the car, for passive and manual unlocking. Tesla service says the key fob cannot be...

    I have a new to me 2014 (12/2014) and would like to have a backup fob. I know that the programming has to be done at the Service Center, but if you were to buy one on eBay will they still do it?

    Well, my wife is a non-tech person. So far, the MY Bluetooth works ok with her iPhone. But I don't know what is the failure rate in the real world.

    Why can my doors open when the key is out of range?

    I'm sure this is a head-smack obvious issue. The other month I leaned against my '13 Model S doors and the handles presented. I figured my wife left a key in the garage. Nope. They keys were on the other side of the house, along with my phone, certainly more than 30 feet away. It's...

    Key Fob Setup

    Good evening all, I'm a new Model S owner and upon taking delivery, only one key fob was setup. I'm trying to figure out how to setup my wife's key fob with her driver profile.

I got two cars that have those keyless keys and haven't really thought of using one yet. It's definitely easy to use but I'd be seriously...

    Why can't smartphones communicate directly with your Tesla?

    Phones have WiFi and Bluetooth. Teslas have WiFi and Bluetooth. Why should smartphones need to go thru the internet (which isn't always available) just to allow keyless entry and driving? Wouldn't it be convenient if your phone or watch virtually replaced the key fob? One less thing to carry.
