Adding a new phone key on Tesla Model 3 


Note: Bluetooth must be enabled, and the phone must have the Tesla mobile app loaded and connected to the vehicle's Tesla Account in order to add a new phone key.

  • Open the Tesla mobile app while seated in the vehicle and choose the relevant vehicle (if there are numerous vehicles associated with the account), then tap 'Phone Key' > 'Start.'
  • Scan a key card or key fob that has already been authenticated on the key reader behind the cup holders on the top of the centre console.
  • Touch 'Done' after the mobile app confirms that the pairing was successful.
  • The new phone key is shown in the touchscreen's key list ('Controls' > 'Locks'). The phone key's name is decided by the name entered in the phone's settings.
