    Yesterday, for no particular reason I had both front screens go black - car has been stable since I've received it last year. I had left the car running the a/c on Dog Mode for about 5 minutes before returning (which I've done many times before). It took roughly 5 minutes to get the car to...

    Frequency of reboot

    I have a 2017 Tesla MS 75D. I upgraded to the MCU2 about a year ago. It works much faster than the MCU1, particularly with navigation, and overall the performance is less glitchy. But, I still find that I have to reboot my MCU2, perhaps once every 2 weeks, for various reasons: 1) The center...

    Software downloads bugged - update notifications disappear when on wifi

    I've had a software update pending to 2021.24.4 since getting my Model 3 back from the service centre a week ago. It asks me to get on Wifi to download it. As soon as I get on wifi, all the relevant prompts to download it disappear and the car says I'm already up to date (it's the same behaviour...

    Model 3 No longer powers down to reboot?

    I used to do a full reboot after some upgrades by putting my phone in airplane mode, and sitting calmly in the car after tapping "power off" on-screen. You could hear mirrors fold, everything gradually power off, then contactors clunk release after about 2 minutes. After waiting another minute...

    Don't know what else to do, frozen screen, unresponsive scroll wheels

    Just bought a used 2017 Model X. Everything was fine for a couple days until the screen froze up.

    MCU2 Upgrade - Backgammon not working

    I know this is trivial compared to almost any other issue, but when charging I would always play Backgammon. Earlier this year I had my HW3 and MCU2 upgrade completed and other issues aside that were fixed, my Backgammon doesn't work. When I select the game and press the button to play, the...

    In the past week or so, i have had 3 instances in which I have gotten into the car to find the instrument cluster off, and it does not seem to start.

    MCU on Mid 2014 MS Replaced

    The MCU on my mid 2014 had to be replaced. It all started with the screen going black. The first couple of times a reboot resolved the issue. After about the 3rd time of this, the MCU would no longer reboot. No, AC, or control of anything. The app could not access the car either. The SC said...

    I've had my X100D for 5 days. Since then, I have rebooted the car 4 times. Three of those 4, the car went into a loop where the IC screen would flash the Tesla logo and then come up for maybe 5 seconds and then reboot again. The MCU remained black the whole time. I made a small video today...

    How common is a unexpected reboot of the touchscreen?

    (I am brand New X owner.) Put in a destination for Navigation. Started driving but when I look down the touchscreen was black. (Everything else worked fine.) About a minute later the display came back to exactly where it was before. Just curious about how common this is.
