I’m having this exact same issue on my 2020 model. Basically is making this feature useless. I was expecting it to play the sounds I selected every time and not overtake existing playing audio. Had to be a bug because this just isn’t right.
You need to make sure it’s actually plugged in. Is it plugged in?

Model X... When in Park I can activate the Replace Horn. But once I go into Drive, then the Replace Horn gets deactivated (grayed out).
Any ideas?
Thanks

The boombox feature is useless. If you play media through your phone, it doesn't work with the files you have on the USB drive. It's amazing how they can't program something so simple like connecting keeping two different inputs connected at the same time.

Example, when you play media from the tune-in radio or slacker, you won't get audio from the phone even though you have bluetooth connected and it supposed to make notification sounds.

When you don't have the USB input set, the Boombox doesn't work.

Have an 07/19, bought an oem speaker thinking it must have the wire being that close to 09/19 but doesn’t appear to. Pulled wheel well apart, and frunk too - nothing just laying in there or even tied up.

Tesla replaced the speaker they forgot to reinstall this summer. Was surprisingly painless.... They sent mobile support to my house. He looked and saw the wiring harness hanging down to where the speaker was but said he had to change me to a service center to have it replaced. Tesla was able to confirm that my car originally had one and replaced it. It's back to making sound at slow speed, but haven't had a chance to try anything else.

No...if ur car didn’t come with the speaker, the option isn’t available, even if u plug one in. It’s about what Tesla has ur car configured too, and until they find a way to update the configuration for the speaker we are SOL when it comes to the Boombox app. But if you just want the forward and reverse sound, it works. Go figure!!!

How did you get the forward & reverse sound & how did you purchase the speaker?
