    Since I've installed 7.1 I'm getting a random single click sound when I approach my car. It sounds like when the door handles present something clicks down in the battery area. Not sure if it's the car starting up but I find it strange that I didn't start hearing it until this update. Am I crazy?

    I got involved with this thread a bit but my sound seems to be coming from a different area from what they've described. Perhaps it's the same issue but the RW version.

    Perhaps someone has reached out to Tesla to inform them of the issue and we will have some info available very soon.

    Sounds like you're describing the sound of the battery contactor? Not new since 7.1, but wasn't sure how experienced you are with the car.

    I've only had it a month but definitely never noticed it before couple days ago.
