Restarting the Touchscreen Tesla Model 3

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

Warning: Only restart the touchscreen while the vehicle is stopped and in Park. The car status display, safety warnings, backup camera, etc. will not be visible during the restart.


  • 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 3 off and on.
