The last few days the Charge port on my Model 3 is failing to open close to 100% of the time. I've tried every which way:
-Pressing the charge icon next to the charge port on the picture of the car on the screen
-Pressing the Open Charge Port button at the top right of the charging screen
-Pressing the Open Charge Port button in my app while the car is unlocked and nearby
-Pressing the button on the charging cable
-Tapping the chart port
-The one option which isn't available, which was my go-to in the past, is pressing the Unlock button on the right side of the charging screen, I don't know why this isn't available.
My wife had trouble with this recently. Last night it took me 15 minutes of fiddling with it, including manually opening the door which I know I probably shouldn't be doing, and it finally worked after I manually pushed the door closed, maybe catching some latch that wasn't caught before? Right now I can't get it to open at all though I am not attempting to manually pull the port door open this time.
Has anyone else had this problem? And if so did you figure out any gotchas to get it to work normally again?
