I have a 2020 Model 3 AWD Long Range with Autopilot and software at 2020.4.2
The manual says:
"When following a vehicle with Traffic-Aware Cruise Control active, briefly engaging the turn signal (to indicate a move into the passing lane) accelerates Model 3 towards the vehicle ahead. By momentarily holding the turn signal lever up or down, you can quickly accelerate up to your set speed without having to press the accelerator pedal. The turn signal causes acceleration only when all of the following conditions are met:
• Traffic-Aware Cruise Control is operating and detects a vehicle in front of you.
• No obstacles or vehicles are detected in
the target lane.
• Model 3 is traveling below the set speed,
but over 45 mph (72 km/h)."
It does not work at all for me. With the turn signal lever up (to change right) it does not accelerate at all.
For example, I have the TACC set to 105 km/h and I approach a car that is doing 98 km/h. My car slows down to 98 km/h as expected. I hold the turn signal lever up and I'm still at 98 km/h. I have to physically change lanes and then once fully in the clear lane does it slowly accelerate to 105 km/h. I have met all the conditions listed.
Is it broken or am I doing it wrong? Note that I have tried both the soft up (momentary turn) and hard up and it makes no difference.
