Homelink Issues since V10?

My homelink seems to be super buggy as of late where my garage door doesn't always open now when I pull up (it use to be 99% successful) and even sitting in front of the garage door, I have to press the homelink button maybe 3-5 times before it activates correctly.

Anyone else experiencing this?

I've noticed that after pulling out of the garage, the car frequently does not attempt to close it automatically like it used to.

On V10, I do have a homelink door setup in the car, but my tesla app doesn’t see it. I logged out and re logged into the app just to be sure. and I get the following message: Homelink - There are no homelink garage doors near your vehicle.

Ours work fine, I’d say better with v10. Have to ask, you reboot the car since loading v10?

Several times sadly, but trying to fix connecitivty issues like HD radio which turned out to be a new UI feature (you can disable HD radio for some reason...)

My homelink works 100% of the time when I'm coming home, but it fails quite a bit leaving my house. When I manually push the homelink icon it does always close the garage though. No difference with V10.

+1.
No difference with Homelink functionality or reliability between v9 and v10.

YMMV

I don’t have auto open as I do it manually so no input there.

Next step in troubleshooting process is to buy a new house and see if you can reproduce the issue.

Apparently you don’t get the Homelink button in the Tesla app under controls if you don’t have FSD option.
Although the release notes do not mention FSD as being a prerequisite.

Is that true? I have EAP. And I do see the homelink in the app under controls. But when I press it. It says “Homelink - There are no homelink-enabled garage doors near your vehicle.”


I’ve tried it at 2 different locations where I do have home link enabled devices near by. But it won’t open the garage door.

I've had home link problems since the day I got this car. Maybe due to my sloped driveway? Anyone else have a sloped driveway and have no issues?

Got it to work! You have to enable homelink under the summon menu in the car.

Mine is very buggy as well as you describe. I’ve submitted multiple bug reports (each time it happens).

Auto-close on pulling out never worked for me (rear of car pointing toward garage door)... (auto open works reliably ~100% of the time- front of car pointing toward garage door)

Prior to V10 closing it manually (rear toward garage) if I hit it at just the right time (basically right as I felt the rear wheels come over the lip exiting garage) it worked 95% of the time.... Since V10 that's more like maybe 50% of the time. Opening (or closing) when front of car is pointing at garage still works ~100% of the time.

Mine has improved with v10. I had to toggle the distance a bit. It always opened upon approaching. The close after back out used to be random. I have it set at 30’. Our driveway does a “J” into the garage. It opens spot on and closes after about 10’ reliably now.
