    So weird thing happened today. My EAP stopped working. I get the error that Cruise Control and Autosteer are temporarily unavailable. Roster the car and everything, no success.
    Then I get on the highway, and the car will not accelerate past 70mph. simply limits the speed to 70 mph.
    Anybody had any similar experience?

    Valet Mode is right below Easy Entry item in the driver profile menu at the top of the main screen. Also, Valet Mode is at the bottom of the Controls screen in the phone app.

    You likely had a stray touch in one of those two locations.

    Valet Mode can also be enabled from the mobile phone app. Did you leave your phone somehwere, for a "friend" or family member to have some fun?
    It is worth noting that protecting your phone (and access to your Tesla) with a fingerprint may not be entirely secure, as some Iranian guy found out last year.
