Twice now, I have taken out my phone as I am walking to my car, and the phone key has claimed it is connected even though I am 75 yards away from the car.
When I got to my car, I could open the door, as if the phone key actually had connected, but the car would not go into gear until I had put the phone into airplane mode, and then taken it back out of airplane mode.
Background: My phone key almost never works. Failure rate is more than 99.9%. The mode of failure is that the phone won't connect to the car until it is put in airplane mode, and then brought back out of airplane mode.
Once connected, the phone key works as it is supposed to until I walk far enough away from the car for the car to lock. Then it is airplane mode again.
Yes, I have ordered a key fob at least two weeks ago. As far as I can tell, it still has not shipped. This after checking the Tesla online shop every day for two months before I was even allowed to order it.
