    If your Model S's push-to-talk doesn't work, try this DIY fix:

    It worked for me, but now I have to apologize to other drivers and pedestrians when I want to navigate by voice or play music.

    Sounds to me (lol) that the steering wheel has something mechanicaly awry, like the wiring is actually misplaced or it's hitting the microswitch for the PTT. Especially when it honks and also triggers the PTT.

    I really doubt it's a generic 'fix'.
