    In the last couple of days, my model s has experienced that wonderful freezing screen issue that requires what I can best describe as “soft reboot” sequence of holding the two top button on the steering wheel to clean things up.

    Why does this happen?

    Do you have a USB drive attached?
    That was the source of my reboot issues
    Sometimes a reformat and reload of that drive helps

    Have you added a USB drive to your middle console?
    You have 2 USB ports there, perhaps ports in the rear also
    if you added a drive, you would know it
    Check any USB ports for anything attached
    If nothing attached, not a USB problem, and time to check with service center

    I had this issue about a month ago. Did the soft reboot and everything was fine until the next morning. Got in the car and had a message that the 12V battery needed service and to car service to have it replaced. Service Tech came to the house and replaced it and did a software update. Had not had any issues with it since.
