Picked up new MYLR on 6/3. On 6/13 car stopped in middle of street at stop sign. Received 2 strange messages on screen:
1. Regenerative braking reduced
2. Maximum speed reduced
Car would not move, tried screen reset, then complete reset with both scroll buttons depressed, could get nothing. Tried Roadsde service on app-could not get thru because the app could not locate me, although I was only 1.4 miles away from a Service center. Finally got a phone number for roadside assistance from a sales person. Tow truck arrived 1 hour later and took car to service center. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

Yes. Tesla had to replace components. Could also be a cooling issue. In my case, I believe they had to purge the coolant system after installing a new battery heater. Model 3 SR+, one year old, 7,400 miles. I had no problems at all for one year prior.
