Is anyone experiencing long wake up time for Model 3?

Is anyone experiencing long wake up time for Model 3?

Got my Model 3 delivered on 11/16/18, experiencing long wake up time for my car since then - the display is black when I get into the car and it take about a minute to boot up. It does not always happen but sometimes it could happen even when I only park the car for 10 minutes. Scheduled a service but the representative told me it is a firmware bug and the only I could do is to wait for the fix in the next firmware (55?) upgrade.

If this is software problem, is anyone else facing the same issue?

Yes, I am having same issue. My son says car is in deep sleep.

I’ve found a trick that seems to work well for me:
1) if you’re car connects to the app via Bluetooth to do things like unlocking doors (which is possible whole car is still deep sleeping) then tap the unlock button first;
2) hard reboot iPhone. Dunno if this works in Android.
3) now open Tesla app and I’m pretty sure car will wake up.

Leaves me to wonder if this is car issue or app issue.

The next update will supposedly take care of this problem by adjusting the wake habits of the car

Just so you know, this isn’t a long wake up time issue. This is a known issue with the intel computer module crashing upon wake when you open the door. You’ll notice that typically, you open the door, the headlights come on, then the screen comes on. When this issue happens, the headlights come on, the computer then crashes and reboots. This is why your headlights go back off. It’s taking long because the mcu is rebooting. It’s a known issue affecting many vehicles in the fleet and it sometimes happens a lot, and other times doesn’t. Tesla is aware of it, but there’s no fix yet. I heard v52 software update will fix, but we’ll see.

Typically, it happens when the car has been sleeping for a while. For me, has nothing to do with the doors being opened or not

And yeah, I will sometimes wait 2 minutes or more for it to wake up. It's why I got the fob. I'm not standing out there in -30 weather with 3 kids waiting for my phone and car to do its thing.

I don't experience this problem. In my opinion, it has to do with the phone and its OS. I have a Samsung S8 running the latest OS. So far the phone is 100% reliable.

My MX "wakes up" much faster than my M3 on my iPhone app. No idea why, just an observation.

AWDTesla | 15. tammikuu 2019

My phone is also a S8

@EM34ME: The OP is talking about the car waking up slowly when you open the door, not when using the app. Our Model 3 wakes up immediately when opening the door, but sometimes the app takes a while to wake the car. The phone key works immediately.

my bad, door wakes up car immediately

ModernTriDad | 15. tammikuu 2019

Is the issue with the car waking or is it with the message sent to the car not getting a timely response? The car is waking fine because it responds to Bluetooth and NFC immediately, but the modem is in a power saving mode that doesn’t respond quickly even though the car isn’t “asleep “.

EM34ME | 15. tammikuu 2019

My car wakes up immediately with the app, when I walk up to it, before I ever touch the door handle, is what I am saying. I don't know if this makes a difference, but I park my car in the garage, always plugged in but necessarily charging, in a very mild climate area of SoCal. I don't have or need any pre-conditioning set on the car.

EM34ME | 15. tammikuu 2019

I haven't noticed any vampire drain either. If there is some, it is probably less than a mile per day.

jdirik | 15. tammikuu 2019

My iPhone 8 never had problems. After I upgraded to XR, wake up is erratic. One fix is to turn off and then turn on the Bluetooth.

Spartan24 | 15. tammikuu 2019

I misinterpreted the OP. apologies. I have trouble waking care from iPhone app. Never trouble when opening the car door.

CST | 15. tammikuu 2019

One of the Model S that I drove had a message about waiting for the car to wake up - its not just the 3 that does it.. but the 3 has no message.

Dmitrysml777 | 16. tammikuu 2019

My takes a long time to wake up. If I am charging overnight, I cannot pull out the charging cable unless I open the car door first.

CST | 16. tammikuu 2019

Yes.. On & off. Of course, if I want to use Summon, it'll be the longest wait ever!

CST | 16. tammikuu 2019

Also, I'm pretty sure that Tesla invented a feature to determine if you are showing off the car, into which the app will never connect.

The "I-told-you-this-Tesla-thing-will-never-work" app.

My observation is that on colder days the car wakes up slower.

cpxazn | 17. tammikuu 2019

Mine has been slower since I took it into service and they replaced my MCU and upgraded me to 2018.50.5. It used to be instant when I opened the doors. Now I can open the door and sit down and the screen will have just turned on or may not have turned on yet. It definitely is not crashing and rebooting.

russr1123 | 18. tammikuu 2019

Why did they replace your mcu? What did you take it in for?

cpxazn | 20. tammikuu 2019

I was having static noises coming from the emergency speaker under the glove box. Apparently there is a service bulletin for this issue and the fix is to replace the MCU. Funny enough, it didn't actually fix the issue, and it seems like they scratched my kicker panel in the process.

Wake up time a lot quicker after the update today...
