Unable to Wake Car Up from Phone

Hi everyone,

I recently picked up my SR+ and was trying to play around with the app and check out what it can do. However, I've noticed that the app after about 25ish minutes will no longer be able to connect to the car and eventually errors out with a "Vehicle Connection Error".

This isn't a problem if I turn the car on, it'll connect instantly but it does make using summon in the morning an issue.

Anyone experience this?

Phone(s) I've tested with: Pixel XL & S10+ w/car connected to wifi AND Pixel XL w/ car connected to LTE. [Pixel XL is on Android 10]

Thanks!
 
This use to happen to me a lot, and I found the fixes for me varied. I am using an iPhone though.

You can try some of these to see if it wakes up:
- On your phone turn off and then on Bluetooh
- Turn off Wifi on your phone and try to connect
- Ensure the car is connected to either LTE or Wifi
- Sign out of the Tesla app and re-login

Another random thing that worked for me was to go into the controls page within the app and wait a few seconds. For me the car would connect a bit quicker then it would from the home screen.

Again, it's been a while since I had this, but all worth a try. Hope you get through, and congrats on your SR+
