Power Cycling your Tesla
While you can often restart your Tesla to fix many issues, you can perform a power cycle if it demonstrates unusual behavior:
- Shift into Park.
- On the touchscreen, touch Controls > Safety > Power Off.
- Wait for at least two minutes without interacting with the vehicle. Do not open the doors, touch the brake pedal, touch the touchscreen, etc.
- After two minutes, press the brake pedal or open the door to wake the vehicle.
