    Fly it back.

    Isn’t that what this mode enables?

    Mmm no,
    I know how to get out of this mode (I think restart will do this). I would like to see what are the hidden screens, and how to access them.

    I don’t think you understood me :)

    The pin is entered, I don’t want to remove the service mode, I want to use it.

    I was at my local service centre the other day and they had a notice pinned to their inside charging unit, which says the code to enter and exit service mode is .... service
    But I doubt it would work unless you're at the service centre as i'm sure they have some sort of geofencing going on.

    I've tried service before but didn't work. Then again, I was at home. Maybe next time I'll try it at the tesla service center.

    Touch and hold down the T on the screen for approximately 30seconds.

    I think I understand, you car was left in service mode. You are looking for any fun stuff that can be done to the car or view while your car is still in service mode?

    There's nothing fun really. But now the question is, how do you get the access code to pop up again after Tesla's update
