    Hi,

    I recently updated the firmware on my HW 1 X, I can no longer double tap the key (unlock the car) to open the driver's door. I don't want to enable automatic driver's door, I merely want to open the door from the key fob as I use to. How can I enable this?

    Thanks

    Apologies if this was discussed before, I was abroad and just got back into my X.

    Yeah they bundled those features together. There doesn't seem to be a way to get around it for now. You might consider opening a feedback report for them. I will as well.

    Yes I was the first to report that they bundled it together with automatic front doors.

    They also now allow you to open the passenger door with the double tap instead...so with auto opening = driver door, double tap = passenger door. I welcome the change :)

    Cool! I just have this problem where the auto open function drives me insane is all. I liked the previous option where you could double click twice to open the front doors without one of them auto opening.

    The most common reason auto open opened the door for me was I had gone to the garage to take the trash out. I could change my habits to keep the key in the house, but I don't really feel comfortable with auto open anyway.

    It is annoying that it constantly opens when you're waking around the car in the driveway or garage.

    I've found that if I hit the remote 3 times to close all the doors the car shuts all and then sits off while I move about the garage. It no longer responds to me walking up to the door, in fact I have to push the door open bar or hit the remote to open the door. I have to leave the key range and then return before it reacts again.

    That's normal. Likewise you can push the fob once while approaching the car and the front door will stay shut.

    I kind of mean in general, not just after locking up. If I have to go to the garage to get or do something, the car opens up. I had the X in the driveway on Sunday, and was walking from the garage to the front yard and back to the garage (multiple times) and every time it would open up.

    Tesla could easily solve this by adding an option to "keep car unlocked at this location". I sent them a request a while ago but who knows if they will ever implement it.
