Wifi issues in new Tesla

5549 Views 18 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Luke Henley
I've just received my new Tesla Model Y and cannot connect to wifi.

When I try and connect, it searches for networks but doesn't find any. My phone however does connect to my home wifi so the Tesla should be within reach (it is parked on my drive). But even then, it's not just that it doesn't find my home network, it doesn't find any!

Just worth mentioning the following before anyone mentions them...
  1. I have tried rebooting the Tesla
  2. Wifi is definitely on, not off.
  3. I have not yet connected the car to my phone (if it makes a difference) as I'm still waiting for my lease company to transfer ownership to me or something like that.
Any ideas? Until this is sorted I'm unable to download updates, get traffic info when using sat nav, etc.

Will it connect to your phones wireless hotspot for example if you enable that?
FWIW my Leased model 3 had premium connectivity for a year before losing it, was only supposed to be 1 month.
I do not subscribe to it now.
I just do not think i need it, i can use wifi on move if i want to stream music on the dedicated players but normally just use Spotify on my phone and audio in car as bluetooth source.
Not worried about sat view maps or live traffic.
Not had is since last Sept and not needed it once.
Fair points, for reference the Supercharger info still works for me.
