Did you name your car 'Christine' ?
My guess is it's a message to the mother ship, which will come down from orbit and collect all her kids when the owners are asleep.
Neh, the one is just slower - each had a short blink followed by long blink, so still an "A"
It happened 3 minutes before midnight PDT for me.
Car locked. Key away. No updates (it did update the day before). No meaningful internet traffic (see below traffic graph for just that Model S - lights blinked just before midnight).
Maybe Christmas Show code intermingled with sleep code. Just wait until the racing game code intermingles with auto-pilot!
I have the same issue. Talked to Tesla today and they haven’t heard anything. The couldn’t see anything in the logs.
Point them to this thread, 2 videos on page 1 - one on each continent so it's not limited to geographical area.
We now know it's not random - both videos show identical blinking pattern.
Here's another video. This happened to me last night as well. I had a headlight replaced in the afternoon yesterday due to a dimming DRL and thought it was related to that, but apparently not. I reached out to service and was told it's a firmware bug. My last software update was August 2nd and I have not seen this happen until yesterday.
Has anyone seen this happen before yesterday? I wonder if this is related to a firmware version, or some sleeper code which activated itself on a specific date.
Happened to me this morning, at least two times while cleaning my S, did not get video but it flashed each headlight at different times. I had the fob in my pocket the entire time.
I upgraded to 28.2 yesterday or the day before.
I noticed this started happening to ours a week ago, I want to say it was after getting 28.1 and still happens with 28.2. It seems to happen when the car wakes up from sleep, last night it happened after I plugged it in when it had been asleep for a couple hours. All told I have seen it happen 3-4 times in a week, always at night after, although I don’t haven’t been around to see it during the day.
I speak Morse Code. Each headlight is "saying" ET.
On any other day I'd say this is a weird firmware bug (Tesla has many). But because of the timing of the article claiming there are unfound easter eggs, and because the blink lengths are different, I'm giving it a small chance of it not being a bug, but the lead up to something more interesting.
It's not "A". It's two letters, "ET", which someone thought would be funny to go along with the Mars app that makes absolutely no sense.
Must be related to 2019.28 as I had never noticed this before but this morning when walking into my garage my driver side headlight did this.
looks super creepy
Same exact thing started happening to my model S since a few days ago; coincides pretty close with my last firmware update. My first guess was that it was also a bug in the latest update. Relieved to see I’m not the only one experiencing this issue, hopefully Tesla adresses it soon.
Mine did this again tonight, noticed because we were outside in the hot tub. Creepy.
I checked, my car does few times a night, I guess whenever it wakes up periodically. It might do it during the day too. It seems Tesla software bug. Evidently their QA doesn't watch what happens to the car when parked.
