Help, advise, suggestions..any clues will help

:confused:have owned the magical car MX since Friday. Today it's the first time it acted unusual...like i had the dancing cars on my screen by the steering column..it noted that i had a truck behind me on my street...(No trucks allowed on my street) earlier i went to plugin to have my car chg according to the schedule i set up i thought on the Tesla phone App/ or Stats for Tesla...to begin @ 12;30 a.m. ...well, it started chrging right away @ 7:00 pm (Not sure which i used.). Neither showing the possibility to do that scheduled start....when i realized it wasn't going according to plan..i tried to find where i set up chg time...Can't locate where
also my one key fob works but not on the Butler option i have to press the handle to get the front door opened. To add to my interesting day..the software update arrived..waiting to see what happens now...Any suggestions on how any of this i can solve will be greatly appreciated..i luv tech so i'm not upset just in a quandry
thanks mucho in advanceo_O

jersey, don't worry about the dancing cars. Its part of the sensor still adjusting to autopilot so to speak. Most of us see it. Its nothing to worry about. The software will improve and it will disappear or settle down.

You likely selected the charging time while you were not at home. When you schedule the charging at home it knows then the time you want it to begin charging. I can't unwind in my head from here what you did to make these choices that you don't like now, but it will make sense as you gain experience.

Use the little icon on the screen down in the very left corner to get to the car's controls. You are looking for "Charging".

I don't know what you mean by Butler option. Maybe I will figure that out when I see the new Downton Abbey movie this weekend.
 
Could be the car just using "shore power" when plugged in and active. It's not charging in that situation, just drawing power from the grid instead of the battery. But it does show the incoming power on the screen, so it looks a lot like it's charging. That stops when the car turns off, soon after you leave in most cases.

The "dancing cars" only dance when they are stationary. I think this is the old problem of detecting stationary things, only with cameras instead of radars. 3D vision through one camera can kind of be faked if things are moving, either you or the target car. But if everyone is stationary there's no simple way to pull distance numbers from a 2D camera. And apparently Tesla is not building a 3D model of the environment and simply remembering where everything was while stationary. At least not for this display. Just one possible explanation.

If the doors/fob are behaving differently than they used to a reset might be in order. That's the first thing to do when strange things happen.

You are new to this forum. You posted 50,000 new threads in every section of this website in a few days. I can also suggest for your to have some respect for the forum and us old regulars and at least state your questions clearly. Borderline rudeness will evaporate quickly.
