Model X

Disable Parking Sensors?

I have to park my Model X in the garage very close to my other car. Tesla Parking sensors do not obviously like the proximity and scream.

Is there an option to temporarily turn off parking sensors?

    Instead of turning it off completely, is there any way to lower the threshold it starts beeping at? I believe they start warning once something gets within ~20 inches or so, is there a way to lower that to say ~10 inches or something? Maybe that would be helpful
  • You may be able to turn on Joe Mode in settings? It reduce chime volume to minimize disruption

    To enable Joe Mode, tap Controls > Safety & Security > Joe Mode.
  • I believe that there is a way of changing the front or back settings of the sensor to alarm at different distances, but I have forgotten exactly now. I did it once to get this big car in my garage and I set the front sensors to alarm at 9 inches, which was perfect in getting the back end of the car safely in the garage and away from the garage door. I would suggest reading the manual.
    I do not know of any way to disable them, however, as you requested.
