Power Cycling the Tesla Model Y
If your car exhibits unexpected behaviour or displays a generic alarm, you might try power cycling it to see if the problem is resolved.
- Put the vehicle into Park.
- On the touchscreen, go to Controls > Safety & Security > Power Off.
- Wait for about 2 minutes and do not interact with the vehicle during this time. Do not open the doors, touch the brake pedal or the touchscreen, etc.
- After the time has passed, press the brake pedal or open the door to wake the vehicle.
