Problem with changing lane while auto steering

Hello,

we are unable to change lane when the auto-steering is on.
The software is updated and we have a full autopilot option. I tried many times, but never succeed.
Does anyone have an idea what should be the reason?
Here is the video of an attempt:

Your vid doesn't play ?needs to be made public.
The most common lane change error is putting the indicators on fully - just hold to the first detent in self-steer and the car should respond.

A couple of updates before v10 in my car the lane to the left of the car sometimes disappears even if there really is a lane there. When that happens autopilot will not allow an automatic move into that lane.

It works fine when the car detects a lane.

Next time you try it, first check the display to see if the car is detecting the lane you are trying to move into.

Thanks for your comment, changed to public.
In the auto-steering the car never detected next lane to move into, only the current lane.

Try giving it more time, you shut the turn signal off quickly in the video, it isn’t instant.

Explain the “full autopilot” option you think you have. What year is your car, when did you buy it, and what did you pay for the “autopilot” option?

If they don’t have Auto Lane change, AP will disable when the blinker is activated. That doesn’t look like what is happening.

there is a warning on screen, but the movie is too small to read it. What does it says?
Anyway, it looks like your car is not recognising adjacent lanes, therefore no lane change.
Maybe there is a need for a visit to SC.

Also, some others have reported issues in recent firmwares with lane changes to the left on surface streets / non-divided highways.

have you tried to the right or on a freeway?

The car is 2019, paid $6000 for "full self-driving capability" option.
The warning is tire pressure, it was 2.7 instead of 2.8 because of cold air. I don't think it might be the reason

The car is used in Russia, unfortunately we do not have any authorized SC.

That’s not how it works, at least not on Model 3. If you have autosteer but not auto lane change, putting on the blinker does not turn of autosteer, but it does make the resistance to manually turning the wheel much lighter. Turning the wheel, of course, does disable autosteer.

I believe this is different in EU at least, it was established by the regulation and it requires much longer time to keep that signalling ongoing. This is way to short period on the video.
