Can someone provide me a list of the functions that the Model 3 steering wheel controls can operate (or a link to thread that discusses this)? I don’t mean stalks, just the controls on the face of the steering wheel.

Thanks.

Left Wheel is for audio controls:
Tilt Right/Left = audio track skip forward / back
Scroll up/down = audio volume up / down
Push = Audio play / pause (mute)

Right Wheel is for Cruise Control / Autosteer:
Tilt Right/Left = adjust follow distance
Scroll up/down = adjust target speed
Push = initiate voice command

I wish Tesla let you customize the right wheel like they do on the Model S / X.

Thanks. What about context sensitive stuff? Like steering wheel tilt/telescope?

Those modes would be explained on screen in the appropriate menu/option.

Also, for the left wheel control, if you push left/right and HOLD, that allows changing the source of the music.

Didn’t know that source one. Just tried it and it works but it seems a little inconsistent. Sometimes it just changes stations, and other times changes sources. You need to be at the end of the station / favorite list before it will toggle to the next source. And even that seems to be iffy. Am I missing something or is that just how it works?
