    Having taken delivery of my lovely new S85-D I'm delighted with the drive and the finish of the car, but I have a problem with the Autopark facility!:smile:

    Each time I tried to park my 'Titanium Bronze' S85 it either cancels out halfway through the manoeuver, or it doesn't turn into selected space, but keeps on reversing in a straight line. I reported this last week, but no-one has rung me back from technical support! So I'm wondering if Autopark works correctly in your model? :confused:

    Congratulations on the purchase of your Model S. Share with us the conditions of where you park your "S". Is the space on an incline? How's the surface of the parking space? Is it concrete, gravel or some other material?

    Don't have enough information about the parking problem to help you yet, but the key fob sensitivity could be from interference.

    Do you have another key fob for another type of car, or your cell phone nearby (maybe in the same pocket?)

    I found that my BMW key and the Tesla key fob would not work or would be erratic when they were in the same pocket. When I moved the BMW key fob to the other pocket and left the Tesla alone it solved the problem. Also found the iPhone would do the same if in the same pocket or too close.

    Also, make sure you have a fresh battery in the Tesla fob.
