Hi

I have a refreshed 2021 Model 3 LR which has covered around 600 miles since taking delivery in December.

Due to working from home etc, the car isn't getting used every day.

One day last week, as I got in the car, the screen came on but as soon as I pulled off the drive, the screen went blank, it was as if it had done a re-boot as a couple of minutes later, the Tesla logo appeared and all worked fine other than there was an error message saying that the SOS system required a Service appointment. Got to my destination and when coming home, the SOS error disappeared.

At the weekend, the exact same thing happened, the car hadn't been driven for a couple of days, screen off, SOS system error, get to destination, re-enter and no problem.

I haven't driven the car since, has anyone else had a similar problem?

I've had my M3 around 18 Months now and I think it's happened to me twice so it is a 'thing' but if it happens repeatedly then I would book a Service Call.

Had the same issue. Picked up my car 31st December. It happened once and never happened again. Tesla couldn’t see anything in the system even though it said it needed service or something in the error. This happened after a software update. Can’t remember which one
