Android 13 update phone key not working

My wife's Pixel 6A is occasionally not unlocking or letting her drive with the phone key. It does work with using the phone's NFC feature and using it as a key card on the B pillar and using it behind the cupholder to drive. After she arrived home, I tried it myself with her phone. I turned on/off Airplane mode and I was still NOT able to drive. It's a bit irritating. Other days, it goes fine without issues.
I dont know if she's on Android 13 or 12 (I can check, but doesnt seem to matter). I've already allowed the Tesla app to use battery unrestricted

I am having the same issue with Samsung Galaxy S22 running Android 13.
There is a work around mentioned in the troubleshoot section where is says that enable airplane mode and then disable airplane mode. That seems to be a workaround for now to fix the issue and the phone starts working as a key again.

Just updated my Samsung Galaxy S20+ to Android 13 and toggling flight mode temporarily fixes it for me. What a pain.
 
Been following this thread for a while. For the past month or so my bluetooth key would disconnect multiple times a day. Very frustrating. Other bluetooth items, such as my garmin watch and a blood pressure monitor would not work properly as well. Constant phone reboots or airplane mode toggles to fix. I've always had an Android smartphone, starting with the Motorola Droid, and my current phone is a Pixel 6a that has been on Android 13 since release. I told my wife four days ago I'm factory resetting my phone, and if that does not fix the issues I'm buying an Iphone. I was tired of dealing with it. However, since the factory reset everything has been rock solid. Hopefully it will remain that way. Factory resets are a pain in the ass, but it seems to have fixed the issue for me. Knock on wood..... YMMV
