    I have had my MS for 4 months now. For the past few weeks Homelink only works intermittently. Meaning that it does not always open the garage door on the 1st try. I have to press repeatedly and it will eventually open. This use to work flawlessly. Anybody aware of recent software changes that broke this? Thanks

    I have this issue as well. Sometimes I have to switch driver profiles to get it to work.

    LED bulbs in garage (or neighbor's home) could be the issue. Certain manufacturer bulbs infer with the signal. Also put a larger antenna on your garage door opener drive unit. Worked for me.

    Happens all the time to many, many people. Lots of threads on this topic. One or all three of the following will fix it:
    1. Full reboot of the main screen (foot on the break, press both scroll wheels and don't let off on all three until you see the Tesla "T" on the screen.
    2. Reset Homelink location.
    3. Remove then re-link Homelink.
