    I have the Tesla app on my iPhone - just noticed this morning that the phone is having problems connecting to car - it has a "Vehicle Connection Error" - does anybody have a solution to fix? I logged off on the Tesla app and re-signed back in and that didn't help. Thanks for any input!!

    Look under your iPhone settings , under blue tooth and make sure you see Tesla , and make sure it's connected . I had few time had to go in iphone manually turn it on

    Might also check that your car is connected through LTE or WiFi. If not, and you think you have good signal, reboot the MCU (the 2 finger steering wheel roller button maneuver) and see if it fixes it.

    I have this issue on an ongoing basis. Sometimes the car will connect, sometimes it will just spin. right now it's 7:05 PM and it says it was last updated at 9:54 AM. I am wondering if it's because I have one of the last 3G cars. FWIW I live right in the heart of a big city and the car is out in the garage right now. Rebooting sometimes works, but not always. It's really frustrating, especially when the car tells me it's somewhere it's not.

    This started happening to me since one of the last several updates. It happens much more frequently now. I have tried rebooting the car. I have also experienced the car to require rebooting when it sat in the sun for all day. I get in the car and the car won't do anything. Both of these items have occurred since one of the last two updates.

    I have the same problem and it started after the last update, also the center screen freezes up every so often.
