Tesla vehicles are loved for their high-tech features, elegant design, and top-notch electrical components. One of the most popular features included in these cars is the ability to check tire pressure using the interior display screen. But how do you enable this feature?
Here's how to view the tire pressure on the Tesla Model 3:
- Turn on the vehicle.
- Swipe left near the microphone symbol on the screen.

1. Turn on the vehicle
To see the tire pressure display, you need to turn on the car. So once you have started your vehicle, you will have to wait a few minutes to give the car the opportunity to check the pressure. This is one of many routine checks your Tesla will perform every time you turn on the car, so it may take a few minutes.
Also note that it may not display any numbers. This is likely to happen if the car has been sitting for a while. To get the readings, you'll need to drive and allow the vehicle to go through its internal checks.
2. Swipe left near the microphone symbol on the screen
Once your Tesla is powered up and activated, you will notice that the display screen in the center has two distinct sides. On the right side, you'll see options like:
- Quick checks
On the left side of the screen, you'll see a small image of a Tesla, under which there should be three symbols. This is where the tire pressure will be displayed. Touch and hold the screen near the microphone symbol (right) and swipe left.
The display will change, showing you an enlarged image of your Tesla along with the PSI readings of each tire.
How do you check the tire pressure on a Tesla?
Checking your Tesla's tire pressure is a simple process, but it differs slightly depending on the type of Tesla model you own. We've already covered how to check this on a Tesla Model 3, but it's a little different process on newer vehicles.
Therefore, we delve into the tire pressure check of the other three current Tesla models.
Tesla Model 3 e Tesla Model Y
Checking the tire pressure on your Model Y is as simple as it was for the Model 3. First, you'll need to put your vehicle in and turn it on. Then access the digital display screen to the right of the steering wheel.
From here, we advise you to pay attention to the left side of the screen, the part which shows a digital view of your vehicle. Make a swiping motion (from right to left) to increase the current tire pressure of your vehicle. You will see the three symbols move and be replaced by a large image of the car with the PSI information clearly visible.
There is not much difference between checking the tire pressure of a Tesla Model Y and that of a Tesla Model 3.
Here's how to check the tire pressure on a Tesla Model Y:
- Read the label on the driver's door pillar.
- Remove the valve cap.
- Push an accurate gauge onto the valve.
- Read the pressure from the pressure gauge.
How to Check Tesla and Model X Tire Pressure
To check a Model X's tire pressure, you must use the Click Wheel on the right side (located in the steering wheel) to access the dashboard menus.
To do this, press and hold the Click Wheel for a few seconds, then move it up or down to scroll. You'll see this motion displayed on the screen behind the wheel, not on the center console like Model 3.
View the digital dashboard as you scroll to find the 'Car Status' menu. Press the Click Wheel down to select this menu and view the tire pressure. Remember that your vehicle will not display this information if it is currently in parking mode.

How to check the tire pressure on a Tesla Model S?
Another popular Tesla model is the Tesla Model S. Follow the same steps to check tire pressure on a Model S as you would on a Model X.
Here's how to check the tire pressure on a Tesla Model S:
- Drive your Tesla Model S approximately one mile.
- Press the scroll wheel down.
- Scroll down to “Check Status” using the left wheel control.
How do you pump up a Tesla tire?
If you're running on underinflated tires, it's crucial you fill them with air as soon as possible. If you drive with underinflated tires for too long, you risk causing an accident or damaging your tyres.
Here's how to pump up a Tesla tire:
- Connect a pressure gauge to the valve stem.
- Use a foot pump to inflate the tire to the correct pressure.
- Remove the gauge from the valve stem.
- Reconnect the valve cap to its stem.
Note: If you don't have a foot pump, you can use an air compressor with a pressure gauge attached. For best results, make sure your tire pressure reaches the recommended number on your car's tire and load information label.
Questions people ask
Can you put any tire on a Tesla?
Just as with any other vehicle, you'll want to make sure you put the right tires on your Tesla. You can find out which tires are best for your Tesla vehicle by referring to the tire information inside the driver's side door jamb.
The most important consideration is tire size and pressure. That said, it's also worth considering the type of tire (all-terrain, all-season, snow, sand, etc.) to ensure your tires enjoy a long life. Tesla is equipped with top-of-the-line tyres, so it is recommended that you replace them with the same ones.
Why do Tesla tires have foam in them?
If you buy a brand new Tesla from a Tesla dealer, you'll likely end up with a vehicle with Tesla-specific tires. These tires are often equipped with a layer of insulating foam. The main purpose of this foam is to reduce noise.
To check Model S or Model X tire pressure, press and hold the knob on the right side of the steering wheel. Then, scroll to Car Status and press the Click Wheel down to access tire pressure information.
Tesla's cars are some of the most popular electric vehicles on the road today. From a safety standpoint, it is imperative that you check your tire pressure as soon as your tires begin to sag. If you don't, there is a risk of an accident or damage to your tyres.
Get an accurate reading by following the steps in this guide when checking your tire pressure. For best results, make sure your tire pressure reaches the number recommended on your car's Tire and Loading Information label.
Electric cars are likely to be the future of personal transportation. They are environmentally friendly, economical to run and even outperform petrol cars. However, electric cars rely on batteries to store charge, and people often wonder if batteries can lose charge when the vehicle is parked.
Electric cars lose a small fraction of their charge when parked, which amounts to about 2-3% per month. Of course, this amount varies depending on battery voltage and make and model. Fortunately, you can change settings in your EV to reduce the amount of charge lost when your car is parked.
Electric vehicles contain high voltage batteries which can be sensitive to various factors affecting wear. However, the most likely cause of battery deterioration is use. Charging your batteries and then using only a small percentage before fully recharging will greatly reduce your storage capacity.
Even if you store your electric car in ideal conditions, you will most likely lose some battery capacity over time.
Electric cars are growing in popularity year after year. One reason electric cars are growing in popularity is the addition of powerful lithium-ion batteries that allow them to go faster and further than before.
