Steering Column Control

Steering Column Control

My 2018 TESLA S has experienced three instances of steering wheel control malfunctions. The first two occurrences were corrected by TESLA service by replacing the “Module - Steering Column Control.” The loss of a horn and thumb wheel functions are tolerable. The inability to “reboot” could prove to be a major problem. I am reluctant to correct the current failure because the repair is ineffective. Has anyone else had this experience?

I think you may be describing the problem I had with my 2017 S. In my case this has been a winter and low humidity problem, and after lots of troubleshooting it was decided it had to do with static electricity frying some delicate circuits in the steering column. The Indianapolis SC has finally gotten it fixed with lots of extra insulation.

Ask your SC to call my SC to tell them how they fixed the doughnut lady’s black S100D.

Yep Same problem with my 2016 s60 (november 2016 delivery at the factory) it has happened twice. first time was iin june of last year said they replaced the steering wheel control module (controls?) they did not look replaced. it happened again a few weeks ago and killing power from the screen (power off) can sometimes restore it for a bit but it dies again. Now that it is out of warrantee I am hoping for a good will replacement as this is the second time in a year
