SoCal man says car computer on his new Tesla froze, causing vehicle to be stuck at 83 mph on freeway
The owner of a new Tesla Model 3 was left in shock after the car's main features allegedly froze while he was driving on the freeway.
I got 3 different Tesla cars since 2012 from classical manual mode to the fancy FSD and each one of them has its screen displays frozen from time to time but I thought nothing of it. They would either reboot themselves or I could reset myself while continuing the drive. I’ve never lost the propulsion and my accelerators have always worked in these cases.
However, this brand new Tesla Model 3 got into KABC7 TV news when its screen froze while at the speed of 83 MPH.
According to the owner:
"Diagnosed and found poor communication from charge port door causing power conversion system to shut off in order to protect on board components during drive."
So, does the computer actually shut down the propulsion and render the accelerator useless in this case?
