Unable to use 12V Tesla Tire Repair compressor with USB connected TapTes Dual Qi wireless phone charger.
I recently attempted to “top off” tire inflation using the air compressor from the Tesla Tire Repair Kit, which was connected to the 12V outlet in the center console. After about 90 seconds it shut off. After doing a bit of troubleshooting, determined that the 12V outlet didn’t have power. Called my service center asking how to reset power to the outlet, since a “reboot” didn’t work. They ended up sending my M3 a s/w update, which was a reinstall of the current version and this did the trick. I scheduled an appointment to determine the root cause.
I was told the center console had a power limit that was affected by my wireless phone charger, and the car was unable to provide 12V power to a Tesla tire compressor while having the wireless charger used with the portable compressor. They disconnected the charger via the USB port, and demonstrated that the 12V works with the compressor, on both my M3 and another at the shop. And I incurred a $97.50 service charge, since it was a result of using a 3rd party wireless charger.
Question - has anyone else experienced this type of problem, does it sound right? Know of any local user method to reset the 12V outlet?
Issues - Once the 12V outlet powers off, there is no user reset, thus making a portable compressor useless, thus negating the ability to repair and/or inflate tires.
