"car shutting down, pull over safely.."

After most recent update, (46.2) the dreaded error messages came up while my wife was driving (gulp)... luckily in town, with plenty of parking.

Sure enough, she exited and re-entered. All fine again.

I've read in these forums that about others experience with this.

Any advice on best way to determine if this was "a false or intermittent fault" or a something more important, like failing drive unit, voltage issue etc.

Thanks in advance.

BTW - ULTRA helpful Tesla roadside assistance called. explained in detail why not to be concerned about this error message. Was quite interesting to here her go through the car log and explain why this "error message" can be disregarded since it went way after restart. Very helpful.

- More error messages. Still present after power off- recycle. "Auto Emergency braking, traction control disabled, regenerative braking disabled, tire pressure system needs service, stability control disabled, car needs service." Tesla sending tow truck. Service center (Dedham) "will be in touch in next hour to arrange a loner"

A real bummer. 1,200 miles on car.

Well, we rebooted and kept the car. Error messages have not come back.... We were a home delivery. 200 miles from service center... so tesla was willing to tow the car to the service center and then pay Enterprise rentacar $59/ day for a "nissan altima" for us... while they had the car for an estimated +2weeks. Just seemed like a waste of time and money for an "error message" that might be a simple fuse issue. So anyway, Telsa has the error logs, hopefully it never comes up again.. .but if it does, it is nice to know they are there are ready to "make it work"
