Wall connector button strangeness


Never thought I'd be driving the world's best car!

With our '18 M3 dual-motor LR, the charging door does not open when we press the button on the Tesla wall connector's cable. However, if we open and close the car's nearby rear door, then the button starts to work.

No amount of waiting after the first press (before opening the car door) makes the car wake up.

My phone is in my pocket as this is happening.

Any ideas?
