Restarting the Touchscreen Tesla Model S

If your touchscreen is unresponsive or demonstrates unusual behavior, you can restart it to potentially resolve the issue.

Note: To ensure the safety of vehicle occupants as well as other road users, restarting the touchscreen should be done only when the vehicle is in Park.

 

  • Shift into Park.
  • Hold down both scroll buttons on the steering wheel until the touchscreen turns black.
  • After a few seconds, the Tesla logo will appear. Wait approximately 30 seconds for the touchscreen to restart. If the touchscreen is still unresponsive or demonstrating unusual behavior after a few minutes, try powering cycling the vehicle.

Note: Restarting the touchscreen using the scroll buttons does not power Model S off and on.
