Just returned to the Tesla owner community! Previous Model X owner, took delivery of a 2015 Model S P90DL on Friday. It updated to v9 Saturday night and it won't activate launch mode. Here's what happened:
Before update I had Chill, Sport, and Ludicrous acceleration modes with the "Max Battery power" option in blue text. After the update I have Chill, Sport, Ludicrous, and Ludicrous + options but no "Max Battery Power" option. When I push Ludicrous + it goes back to Ludicrous. If I push a second time it stays but there is not a countdown for optimal battery power. I follow the launch mode sequence to a T, it preloads when I blip the throttle but launch mode doesn't come up. If I push petal 2nd time I get the "both pedals pressed" warning. I really want to experience a launch on my new car. I've done it on older P85's before. It only has 20k miles... and drives like it's brand new so I can't imagine it's an issue with the battery.
Anyone else having this issue on older Model S post-update?
The online customer support Rep at Tesla just argued with me that I "Shouldn't have ludicrous + and launch mode". I scheduled a service visit but it's 2 weeks out. I just got the car and this was a key reason I bought it.
Any help is much appreciated.
