Perform reset at Tesla: Soft Reset and Hard Reset

There are two types of restarts, the soft reset, and the deeper or hard reset.

If the car has restarted, but unfortunately the problems still persist,

you can try the hard reset procedure.

This procedure is very similar to the previous one, in addition, you must press the brake pedal and then press the two wheels on the steering wheel and wait for the infotainment to restart.

At this point, as soon as the "Tesla T" appears, you can release the two wheels, while waiting a few more seconds to release the brake pedal, at least until the radio is reactivated.

The two methods described above, it is preferable to do them with the car in P and the driver's door closed.


For some months now, Tesla has updated the manuals of its cars, pointing out that, by doing the hard reset, it is practically useless and will no longer have any impact on it.

If even this does not solve the problem, all you have to do is call Tesla Support and ask for a remote reboot, which will surely fix all the problems.

The guide has been compiled, using a Tesla Model 3. If any user has another Tesla model and the procedure is different, please let us know in the comments.
