Won’t go into Drive or Reverse without a reboot.

Anyone else have this. Never had it before today and had it twice.
Ive had it happen. The solution i found instead of doing a reboot was to use the key card to "start" the car.

The weird thing is that solved the issue.. but i never recieved a prompt on the screen asking for the card. The damn car recognized my phone enough to unlock the doors... but not to start the car.

Keep in mind i havent had this issue in a while. I believe i was still on Version 8.

Maybe try the key card next time it happens to see if it works.

Try doing a “power off” from the menus. Sometimes that works better for certain issues instead of just doing the two button reboot.

This happened to me for the first time today. Couldn't get into D or R.

I set the parking brake, then everything worked as usual.

Happened to me Friday morning on 2018.46.2. No Drive or Reverse. Car started OK (all warning lights on and then off), indicated it was in Park and that was it. Wasn't asking for the card. Tried D and R several times with zero effect. Opened and closed the driver's door and it worked after that. Timing or effect, I don't know. But maybe no need to reboot or turn off.
