My app turned on Speed Limit Mode via the butt-dial method.
Does anyone know if there is a way to reset the pin without the help of Tesla CS?
On the app in controls there's a clear pin under speed limit mode.
@kthang The ‘clear pin’ is only available after turning off the speed limit mode. I can’t turn it off as I don’t know the code.
It explains how to do this in the manual.
@njchillie thanks for making me look again. Was looking for the speed limit mode and it doesn’t specifically talk about it. Tried the valet mode solution and it did work. Phew.
I use chill mode all the time, but......for sure was missing some of that acceleration.
From the owners manual
Speed Limit Mode
Speed Limit Mode allows you to limit the acceleration and maximum speed – between 50 and 90
mph (80 and 145 km/h) – of your Model 3. This feature is protected by a 4-digit PIN that you
create when enabling it for the first time, and which must be re-entered in order to disable and reenable
If your Model 3 comes within approximately 3 mph (5 km/h) of the selected maximum speed, a
chime sounds and text appears on the touchscreen above the driving speed. Additionally, your
mobile app will send you a notification.
To enable Speed Limit Mode:
1. Ensure the vehicle is in Park.
2. Touch Controls > Safety & Security > Speed Limit Mode on the touchscreen or CONTROLS in
your mobile app.
3. Select the maximum driving speed that you would like to limit the vehicle to.
4. Touch Enable.
5. Enter your 4-digit PIN that will be required to disable Speed Limit Mode.
Note: If you forget the PIN, you can enter your Tesla Account login credentials to disable Speed
Where do you enter the Tesla Account login credentials?
inside vehicle or on website?
It’s kind of counter-intuitive, the place where you put in your Tesla account credential is under Safety and Security instead of Driving.
Someone above mentioned that they got the following statement from the owners manual: "Note: If you forget the PIN, you can enter your Tesla Account login credentials to disable Speed Limit Mode." However, I am not getting the option to enter my Tesla Account login credentials. Is there another way to remove the speed limit mode without knowing the pin?
I'm also curious what does this mean: "Note: If you forget the PIN, you can enter your Tesla Account login credentials to disable Speed Limit Mode."
Have you tried with your phone app?
You can disable Speed Limit mode from the app, without having to enter credentials.
@Joseb: That statement just means if you forget the PIN you selected for Speed Limit mode, you're supposed to be able to enter your Tesla credentials instead of the PIN. I assume there's a "forgot PIN" link or something like that on the dialog where you enter the PIN. Of course it's a lot easier to just use the app.
Does a Valet need the Pin number in order to drive the car with the Valet card?
