In case this happens to anyone. Attempted to turn on Tesla once seated. BLACK, BLANK touchscreen. Information panel where speedometer is located said to WAIT for Touchscreen to Power On. Could not start car for about 90 seconds. Could start car but no touchscreen to turn on A/C or open charge port, etc. Called Tesla. Had to do re-boot, said it was bug in system, should be resolved in 2 weeks.
Solution to re-boot:
Keep foot on brake whole time. Top buttons on steering wheel press and hold at same time for about 20 seconds and speedometer display will blink. Let go and then press and hold BOTH scroll wheels at same time for about 20 seconds until actual touchscreen gets WHITE T showing. At this point all worked ok.
Hope this helps anyone that may have same glitch in system.
