    Hello everyone.

    Now that there is a TON more Model 3's out there in the world. I will ask the question.

    Does anyone know how to turn ON and turn OFF the showroom mode for the Model 3?


    I would make this a "first answer" contest, however I don't have anything to offer … except for a boost in pride for the winner.

    What is showroom mode.
    Are you saying the cars we’ve sat in, in the Tesla showroom were in a showroom mode?

    If so, I suspect it’s something you would need a code for to turn on.

    What do you need that for btw. ?
    Curious.

    Yes indeed the car that you sat in, in the Tesla showroom was probably in showroom mode.

    Where the headlights and taillights were on indefinitely ...and you could access certain vehicle functions while the driving mode was disabled.

    I show my Model 3 quite often at shows - etc. and it would be perfect if I could let the car remain "ON" during the various shows.

    I believe you hold down the Tesla logo at the top of the screen for about 10 seconds and a prompt comes up. Enter in “showroom” info the prompt and I think that enables it. Same process to disable. There are likely other codes that do other things but I haven’t seen mention of them anywhere.

    That works on the Model S and Model X.

    They seem to have changed the Model 3 for some reason. I've tried that option.

    Does the prompt not even come up? It definitely used to on my Model 3.

    Indeed the prompt comes up. However typing in "showroom" does nothing.

    They won't tell me. I've asked.

    Every time Tesla sells another 50K Model 3's I'll ask.

    Did you try typing “Dealer”...or is that illegal in some states?
