Bluetooth + Wi-Fi Stuck on Initalizing

Hey everyone,

Apologies if this has been discussed already. I just purchased a 2016 P90DL, and I’m already having issues. I cannot get the Bluetooth to connect to my phone, or the Wi-Fi to connect to my house. Both menus get stuck on the initalizing screen, and never make it past. I’ve reset the screen using the steering wheel buttons twice, but it’s still persisting. Any suggestions?

For the Bluetooth issue, make sure Bluetooth is enabled on both the phone and in the Tesla app settings. For WiFi, try using 2.4GHz if you’re currently using 5GHz. You can also try to connect the car to your phone’s WiFi hotspot to rule out a WiFi hardware issue.
