Tow mode


Nov 26, 2019
Can anyone with a tow bar fitted to their Model 3 help?
When I connect my electrical lead from my trailer to my m3, the car automatically goes into towing mode. I.e a caravan light illuminates on the screen and my rear reversing sensors are de activated.
However when I disconnect the trailer the tow mode stays on and I have to delve into the menus to manually turn it off.
Is this right?
