    I am using software version V10.32.12.2 and I can no longer access my Voice Commands. The icon won't appear on the Dashboard monitor, so I can't dial my connected phone nor ask for Navigation. I have tried resetting the software via the steering wheel buttons and Power Off. Nothing works.

    Any ideas?

    There is a button above your right scroll wheel that is for Voice Command. Once you press it you can give a voice command. If you mean that does not work I have no idea. Has always worked for me.

    Honk your horn, then it will work. Really! See thread on Tesla Forum. Started being a problem for me yesterday.

    Actually the button won’t start working but the voice command will. The horn takes the place of the button. Go figure ...

    This is amazingly illogical--but it works. I just dislike honking the horn whenever I want to place a phone call or inputting a hands-free address for navigation....Just wish I knew what happened to disable the button-press...

    Am I missing something here? "An icon on the monitor?" To my notion there is only one way to enable voice command and that is the bottom above the right scroll wheel on the steering wheel, as has been mentioned here. Is there a "soft" button on the display as well?
    By the way I have the same software release and the steering wheel button works fine.

    this happened to me twice, coincidentally after firmware updates...take it to Tesla or have mobile service come out. The entire button module on the steering wheel needs replaced. Takes about 20 min. The scroll wheels and associated buttons are a component.

    Honk your horn and then your voice commands will be recognized.

    I think that is a Model 3 feature that has a microphone icon on the main screen. On a slightly off topic comment... I used the phone app to honk the horn while I'm traveling for work, I get a voice command from wife to CUT IT OUT (**#&*($($((!
