No panic button?

    How does one invoke a panic function (honking and flashing lights) like one would by pressing the red button on the key fob of other cars?

    Also, it snowed and frosted today and I noticed there is no way to heat the LED headlight lens. Does Model 3 have a heat element that defrosts the headlight lens from being frosted which reduces visibility at night?

    Nope. I don't think it has a panic function either - at least I've not found it.

    There is a honk and flash lights button under the controls section in the app.

    The LED lights don't have heaters.

    There are two separate buttons on the app for flash and honk and they both only beep/flash once. I was hoping for a button or quick launch shortcut that would activate panic function to keep beeping and honking at the mothaf** that is trying to invade my space.

    Future models will have lasers to zap the ice off your windshield, light cover, and also a high powered laser to vaporize incoming coal rolling trucks. ;)

    This is a whole level of cold that makes me a little less disturbed by the ridiculous cost of living in Southern California.

    My sympathies for your weather challenges.
