    Now that is interesting! I wonder if there is a fuse for the rear left door.

    Hadn't heard of that before. He didn't say what steps he tried to get it out. Did he try unlocking the car with the key fob?

    Seems like a few of these issues popping up on the forum as well. The comment by Will Owen on that site is appropriate: the charging should be the easiest part of the design and needs to work every time.

    Just posted the following on that site:
    When I was taking delivery at the Fremont factory last week, the Delivery Specialist was showing me how to use the Charging Port and the very same thing happened. But what must be done, is when the button is clicked on the charge cord, it must be wiggled a bit to release. Once you've done it, it becomes second nature.

    I see 29 comments; yours isn't among them. Maybe it takes a while to appear?

    Thanks dflye. It's labeled 'touchscreen'. I tried it and it didn't work. I'll call Tesla tomorrow.

    Not sure if your scenario is the same as mine: 3G worked fine at time of delivery, but stopped working at some point when garaged overnight a few days later. I have almost zero 3G coverage in the garage, very rarely can I type in a destination in the navigation before leaving the neighborhood. Once the S gave up on the 3G, it stayed off for several days (even when going through areas where it had great 3G coverage a few days earlier.) Tesla service had me yank the "touchscreen" fuse to give it a hard reset and then had me wait a few minutes before reseating the fuse. At that point 3G functionality came back.

    Yeah, same thing. Was working fine for 3 weeks then got in the car one morning and I can't remember if it was shortly after take off or at start up but definitely within the first mile I noticed internet radio wasn't working but didn't troubleshoot and only 20 miles later when I went to navigation did it clue me in that 3G wasn't working.

    This time I removed the fuse and waited a few minutes (7 minutes while I went and did something else) and after I plugged the fuse back in, 3G started up again. I'll report it to Tesla so that they have a record of it till they can figure out root cause.

    Thanks again dflye.
