Key FOB

You're probably auto locking the car instead of using the fob meaning the fob is not paired. Follow this guide (model x is very similar) to pair your fob: Model 3 Key Fob

Check the production date of your car by looking on the sticker inside the driver side door.

Also you can check if you have adaptive suspension damping option.

“ADAPTIVE SUSPENSION DAMPING: Choose from STANDARD or SPORT to adjust the feel of the suspension system. STANDARD provides a softer and more fluid ride whereas SPORT provides a firmer, more controlled ride that increases driver engagement and connection to the road.”

Panicking is definitely not necessary. :) Updates will come fast sometimes and slow other times. I'm currently a bit behind on updates, but I know one will come soon. Patience is key.

Sometimes I've found my X not "seeing" my key depending on what else I have in my pocket, etc. If I just jostle it around, it finds it right away. Is this key thing happening every time or sporadically? Where is the key when it's happening?

Funny, i just got the notice of the update 15' ago..doing it now..
the key is usually in my hand..the one that is acting up has a "tile" connected to it...thinks it's not playing nicely with the Tile??

i'm thinking it won't self present the driver door if the car is locked?!

to all my new "tesla Mentors" please advise one key for not working after 2 days..it closes the doors but isn't found by vehicle to open the driver door...is there anything i can check @ home vs going over to the SC??
thanks in advance...

UPDATE: SA solved she realized i was keeping the fob inside the house too close to the car....

While you resolution is posted just above my response here, to answer the question I'm replying to, there is an option called "Passive Entry" in the Security section. If that setting is OFF, the driver door will not open while the car is locked. If that setting is on, it will, because the fob being close will unlock the car. If you disable passive entry, you only have a limited time to start the car after unlocking it before you have to unlock again to be able to start it even though the fob is in the car, but it tries to tell you this in the IC.
 
Probably a good idea to put that fob in a faraday pouch while in the house. Don't want someone to just open the door and drive off without you knowing.
The fob has to be in the vehicle for it to be driven, and both fobs would have to be isolated or passive entry would have to be disabled for any feasible repeater attacks to be prevented. However, isolating the fob from the vehicle one way or another (distance may be fine vs a faraday pouch) while the fob is in the house is still a good idea if solely for fob battery life and/or vehicle energy saving sleep patterns.
