Force LTE Connection

Force LTE Connection

I live at a condo that lacks LTE service in the underground parking. When leaving the parking garage the majority of times my Tesla will not search for an LTE connection and will be unable to connect to the internet for the duration of the journey. Is there a way to force the system to look for an LTE connection? I have have tried a full reboot and this usually helps but was hoping for a better solution.

just a guess, maybe press on the LTE icon on your screen?

That just brings up nearby wifi networks Jim.

Try pressing the clock three times. This will reset the gps and might force a reset of the LTE system too.
I say might because I’ve never had to try it before.

How can I hookup my LTE service. I just got a 2016 model x?

@larryestes4 - There is nothing to hookup. It should work immediately. Contact service if it is not working (and you're in an area of working cell coverage). In the USA, Tesla uses the AT&T network.

@Larry: I have shitty AT&T coverage at home. 1 bar at best. Often only connects by Wifi.
Try going to a starbucks and see if it works.
