    Hi folks, I had an issue (browser wasn't working) so I wanted to restart just my 17". The forums/help things I read said this:

    "SCREEN REBOOT (Main Display): Hold down the middle steering wheel buttons on both sides for a few seconds to reboot the main display. SCREEN REBOOT (Driver’s Display):Hold down the top steering wheel buttons on both sides for a few seconds to reboot the driver’s console display."

    On my car (5.9 firmware), holding both top steering wheel buttons does nothing. Pressing in on the middle scrollers and holding reboots the driver display first but not the 17". If you hold longer both will reboot at the same time.

    Is this normal/expected? Why is it different than what everyone else seems to have documented/mentioned? Can anyone confirm this?

    FWIW the reboot fixed the browser issue and oddly also fixed my seat heater issue (4/5 seat heaters weren't working before reboot).

    as you wrote should do what it says above. The center buttons should reboot the 17" screen.

    I don't know if it's just me, but it seems I have to hold them down longer on 5.9 to start the re-boot process than with prior firmware versions.

    I noticed it being longer back on 5.8. 5.9 didn't see too different (I had to do it several times)

    You have to hold down those top buttons longer. It feels like it's not doing anything, but just when you're ready to give up...

    Yes, my 17" screen wouldn't wake up tonight. Was about to give up on the reboot option, but it finally took after holding the wheels in for an inordinate amount of time.

    Count to 7 seconds for the reboot. I don't think it's ever been "a few seconds".

    After some trial and error it seems that you have to hold the top 2 buttons for longer than 10s for the reboot. About 20-25 works for me but then you have to let go and then wait up to 10s to see it start booting.

    The big screen you just press in on the wheels and it reboots in about 10s. Odd that they're different.

    Didn't you leave out Select before start?:). Oh, that's for two players I guess.

    For the instrument cluster display, you have to hold the respective buttons for a ridiculous amount of time (~30s). The main screen is more reasonable (~10s).

    Does Tesla really think people will hold down these buttons for prolonged periods by accident?!

    Have you tried holding those down for 30s while driving? 10s is not great, 30s is dangerous.

    Fortunately its usually the 17" you need to reboot.

    Oh, I agree! I'm just curious as to why Tesla went this route.

    Surely 10 or even 5 seconds would be more than enough to prevent people from rebooting the screen when they didn't intend to?

    I wouldn't do either reboot while driving.. It's an electric car! If it's that important to reboot immediately, pull over.

    Rebooting during driving is fine. The systems that run the car are separate from the reboot.

    However, I think with 5.9 they made it so you can no longer reboot while driving. I tried once while in drive to do the reboot sequence (on the scroll wheels) but it seemed to be ignored. Later, I did it after getting in the car while it was still "off". It rebooted as expected after 5-7 seconds. I haven't tried it again to confirm. Prior to 5.9 I had rebooted the center screen 4 or 5 times while driving without issue.

    Not true. I've rebooted while driving in 5.9. I do believe you have to hold down the buttons longer.

    I rebooted the 17" fine while driving. Haven't been brave enough for the dash display though.

    For dash/instrument cluster, I now hold for about 10 seconds and release. There is then about a 5-10 second delay before the reboot occurs. Yes, different than before 5.9.

    Correction on this, with 6.2 a couple times the dash display has spontaneously rebooted on me. A rare event and freaky the first time but didnt affect the driving.
