    Hi guys! I bought 2015 tesla model s on copart auction. In Ukraine Tesla shows LA time. It thinks that It in USA!
    How I can change time manually? Is it real?

    I don't think an owner can manually change the time.

    It sounds like your car is not connecting to an internet to correctly update its time.

    Did you try to connect it over a WiFi?

    Just to be clear, that means you can go to the web browser on the 17" display and go to on a site can't you?

    That means you can go to slacker and play music from the 17" display?

    Are you using a proxy or VPN?

    It's interesting that your car should play Spotify in Europe, not Slacker as in the USA.

    Nevertheless, I am sorry that I am not knowledgeable enough to help you in this case.

    Tap the time on main screen a couple of times (3-5), it could help.

    It uses the GPS to determine location that many features depend on. Have you ensured the GPS is working properly? My guess is the map still shows the car in LA as well.

    Try rebooting. Hold both steering wheel buttons down for 10 seconds.
    Make sure you're connected to wifi at the time. Hopefully it will search for time as it boots up.

    Yeah, definitely a GPS issue. I would ensure the antenna is good, nothing is interfering with reception and no fuses are blown. Otherwise the cable or module are likely bad.
