Car doesn’t fully turn on after entry

Car doesn’t fully turn on after entry

I’m using an iPhone and I can enter my Model 3 without issue. The problem that I have is that the car doesn’t wake up (turn on) sometimes for a period of time and I have to open the app again. It seems to happen at random.

Anyone else have this issue?

Is the touchscreen blank while you're waiting for it to turn on? If not, are there any messages on the screen?

Screen is black. Eventually Tesla logo appears

Not seeing that in our Model 3, but we've only had it a couple of days. Is this a new issue or has it been there all along?

Been going on for around 2 months. Was hoping a software update would have resolved the issue but no luck yet. It seems like it started after version 9

I have similar issue, sometimes car is already driving, screen is still blank.
Also hoping the software update will resolve it, but not yet, still happen randomly

Had my car since July, it’s done it maybe half a dozen times, no consistent reason or time or software version, usually remedies itself (screen eventually comes on). One time it didn’t, and I did the simul-press on the steering wheel nipples, and it powered up. Hasn’t affected the car. My iPhone sometimes dies the same thing. Not worried about it.

This has only happened once to me right after the latest update. Figured maybe the console was doing a deep boot. It was blank for maybe 30 seconds, then the logo and finally it all came up. The controls were sluggish for a bit. Has been fine since.

Do you have a USB memory device plugged into the car? If so, this has been known to cause this symptom.

Dual scroll wheel reboot. Especially after firmware update is complete.

I do have a flash drive plugged in for the dashcam. I haven’t rebooted it in a while. Thanks for the tips
