Three chimes when exiting?

    I tried searching a bunch on the forum, but have been coming up empty handed. I'm hoping this is something that's been figured out by the crowd here since I'm at a loss.

    Over the past few days I've parked the car a few times and as soon as I open the door and get out of the seat, I get three slow chime sounds and the parking lights flash. No messages on either display, just the chimes and the flash. Any idea what the car is trying to tell me?

    Maybe your pants are too tight and pressing the key upon exit.

    I think you may be right. The shorts I've been wearing sorta squeeze the keyfob as you're moving to get out of the seat.

    I switched to taco salad and it solved the issue. :D

    I've had the exact same issue, starting about a month ago. I'll check my pants.

    Make sure the car is actually going into park before you open the door. I had an issue where that control module failed and it had chimed when I exited the car because it was still in gear.

    We have the technology today ..Tesla could do a lot better than simple "chimes" about issues.

    How about having the car actually say something over the speakers if something is the matter... "Car not Parked." "Your lights are ajar." "Driver is overweight."

    There should never be a chime without an explanation on the dashboard. These mystery chimes are disconcerting.

    -Your car is about to explode
    -Your coffee is ready
    -You're too fat for your pants
    -Ding, fries are done
    Ok car, which is it? :p

    Years (and years) ago my uncle bought a new Cadillac. It would verbally voice in either male or female things like "The Door is Ajar". The little kids thought it was hilarious. That's about all it was worth. I wonder if Caddy still has this feature.

    Thanks. Now I'll forever be self-conscious about the Tesla checking out my pants when I get out.

    Or maybe this is an AP2-only thing?

    Maybe your car is still in Drive instead of Park when you open the door?

    No, it is not. Same here with AP1

    It is funny that the car knows /about/ if I am going to make it to the next SC and asks me to slow down if charge is running low but doesn't tell anything about why it chimes on exit

    I have the same issue. What's worse, in my case, the driver's door tries to close with three chimes, pinching myself with the door. Happens many times, now I'm careful enough to be ready to push the door back when it's about to close.
