    Hi there,

    My father has a P85D since march 2015 and have enjoyed every minute in it.
    But one week ago, the front radar seems to not working anymore. Car sees lane, and speed limit but doesn't see the cars in front anymore. The result is autopilot doesn't work, as Tacc...
    We called SC, tried several things but nothing works... Yesterday we had a software update with spotify and other things and we believed it would have repair the front radar but it seems to be a hardware problem....

    Tesla wants my father to go 300 miles away to the SC. It is very disappointed, when he bought the car, we were told that the Rangers could repair at home. Even if we go there, SC is not sure to give an other car to my father for the delay of repair... Very poor response of Tesla.

    Is somebody here had the same issue ?
    We live in France by the way..

    thx
    Johan

    Try to schedule a day to drop off when they can commit to trying to fix while you wait or give you another s to drive home if they need more time.

    Yes, I had this issue in October last year. I made sure that no dirt obstructed the radar unit and there was no visible damage. Had to take it to service centre and they had to re-align radar as per work order.

    Is Tesla simply can't send a ranger to repair ?
