Restarting the Touchscreen Tesla Model X

If your touchscreen becomes unresponsive or exhibits unexpected behaviour, you can restart it to see if the problem is resolved.

Warning: Restarting the touchscreen should only be done when the car is in Park to safeguard the safety of the occupants and other road users.

  • Put the car in park.
  • Hold down both steering wheel scroll buttons until the touchscreen turns black. 

  • The Tesla logo will show in a few seconds. Allow around 30 seconds for the touchscreen to reactivate.  Try power cycling the vehicle if the touchscreen is still unresponsive or behaving strangely after a few minutes.

Note: Using the scroll buttons to restart the touchscreen will not power the Model X on or off.
