Phone Key Disconnected Alert But Working Fine


Nov 29, 2020
For the last 2 days the Tesla app (iPhone) shows key disconnected however the phone works as the phone key should. I have never had a phone key issue and still do not except the app thinks it is disconnected. Have tried turning bluetooth on and off several times and rebooting mthe phone a few time but the error message remains. Any way to correct this?

@Midnightsun no personal experience, but other things you could try:
- sign out of the app and back in
- uninstall and reinstall the app
- delete the phone as key in the car and re-add it
- or the nuclear option: get an Android device :) [just kidding. mostly.]
