Tesla Model S dead in driveway

lol well it sat for 20 minutes and then woke up. Cancelled the tow truck. Definitely wasn’t 12v. Apparently the computer was hung. Did full reboots on everything. Hopefully the gremlin is gone.

My car was towed in for service on Sunday and the same thing happened to them. Monday morning I got an “alarm triggered” alert in the app. Service told me they had to manually pop the car open thinking the 12V had died. Car came back to life after that.

Do you think she started a software update?
Definitely not that. TeslaFi shows upgraded to 2019.32.2 on Saturday. I think it probably needed a reboot after that update. 1 weird thing though. I have been noticing for the past month my car started falling asleep again after months of insomnia. 1 hour at a time only. Coincidentally the car was offline for 1 hour before it came back to life today. Going to start watching more closely and see if I can wake up next time it falls asleep.
