    I have seen this message on three separate occasions. Does anyone know what causes this and can it be prevented? When this happens it takes 10 to 15 minutes for my car to be responsive/drivable. This happened to me this morning and it made me late to an appointment.

    Thanks,
    Wade

    this happened to me twice but they were short delays like a minute or so. 10-15 min seems why too long and not normal. i would call service just in case

    i just had this happen yesterday, (sort of), when i left work for home. my center stack/mcu/screen was black and my dash was on but not really responsive. i could restart the the dash but nothing happened in the middle...

    i called roadside assistance and you have to do a full hard reset.

    how do you do that!? you press both scroll wheels while simultaneously pushing in the brake pedal. be patient! you will have to hold this for 30-60 seconds or until the "T" shows up on the screen!!!

    I’m on MCU1 and the long power up has happened to me every morning since I got the 2018.26 update.

    I had this happen on a recent trip I took, where the outside temperatures were over 100 degrees. Not sure if that had anything to do with it, but maybe parking outside for a longer period of time, or driving for a couple of hours, in the direct sun on really hot days has something to do with it...?

    My car is in a garage every morning. Pretty sure it’s not heat related.

    I have 3/18 build, new MCU2

    This “system powering up” message appeared fairly commonly for me since 2018.24 update. Sometimes I’d have to wait less than a second, other times 10-15 seconds.

    Since the new update a few days ago, I haven’t seen it once.
