I can’t seem to find anyone discussing this, and I find it strange.
On most cars, you can unlock all the doors from the outside. For instance, on my old car, clicking unlock on the key fob once unlocked the driver’s side door and a second click unlocked all the other doors, and they could be opened from the outside handle. I find it strange that there doesn’t seem to be a way to do this on the Model X. The outside handles on all the doors except the driver’s side don’t seem to do anything at all whether the car is locked or not!
I was in a situation recently where I was parked at a supercharger, and had to go back to the car to get something. When I walked up, there was another car parked next to my driver’s side with people getting in and out. So I went to the passenger side, but I could not get in the damn car without double clicking the top of the fob which opened my driver’s side door, bumping in to the people standing there, and then again to open the passenger door. Pressing the passenger door handle by itself does nothing, even while holding the key fob, and even after unlocking the car via the app.
Is there a setting I’ve missed? Are the handles just for show or what?
