Tesla Model S Owners & Service Manuals

Tesla Model S: Autosteer temporarily unavailable

Autosteer is currently unavailable. This could be a temporary condition due to external conditions that include:

  • Missing or faded lane markers
  • Narrow or winding roads
  • Poor visibility due to rain, snow, fog, or other weather conditions
  • Extremely hot or cold temperatures
  • Bright light due to other vehicle headlights, direct sunlight, or other light sources

If the alert is caused by a temporary factor like these, no action or service is typically needed. Continue to your destination. The alert will clear and Autosteer will be available once the condition is no longer present.

Please note that the minimum speed to initiate Autosteer when there is no vehicle detected ahead of you and while driving on a road with visible lane markings is 18 mph (30 km/h), unless certain vehicle and environmental conditions are met. If a vehicle is detected ahead of you:

  • You can initiate Autosteer at any speed under 90 mph (150 km/h).
  • You can even initiate Autosteer when stationary, provided the other vehicle is at least 5 feet (150 cm) in front of you.

This alert will be present if you have temporarily exceeded 90 mph (150 km/h) with Autosteer active, and Autosteer will not be available for the rest of your current drive.

NOTE: If this alert becomes active while you are driving in Germany, Autosteer should again be available once your vehicle is traveling below 90 mph (150 km/h).

If Autosteer is not available by the time you reach your destination, and remains unavailable during your next planned drive, the problem might be one of these issues:

  • Damage or obstruction caused by mud, ice, snow, or other environmental factors
  • Obstruction caused by an object mounted on the vehicle, like a bike rack
  • Obstructions caused by adding paint or adhesive products like wraps, stickers, or rubber coatings to your vehicle
  • A damaged or misaligned bumper

The solution might be as simple as washing your vehicle. If you do not find any obvious obstructions or you find damage to the vehicle, schedule service at your convenience. Your vehicle is OK to drive in the meantime.

For more information, see Autosteer.

Autosteer speed limit exceeded

Take control of steering yoke

Autosteer is unavailable because your vehicle has exceeded the maximum speed limit for this driver assistance feature. Autosteer is only available at speeds up to 90 mph (150 km/h).

Take immediate control of the steering yoke and maintain control until you reach your destination. Your vehicle is OK to drive.

In most cases, Autosteer will not be available for the rest of your current drive. To reset it, you will need to bring the vehicle to a complete stop and shift into Park. When you shift into Drive to travel to your next destination, Autosteer should again be available.

Please note that the minimum speed to initiate Autosteer when there is no vehicle detected ahead of you and while driving on a road with visible lane markings is 18 mph (30 km/h), unless certain vehicle and environmental conditions are met.

If a vehicle is detected ahead of you:

  • You can initiate Autosteer at any speed under 90 mph (150 km/h).
  • You can even initiate Autosteer when stationary, provided the other vehicle is at least 5 feet (150 cm) in front of you.

NOTE: If this alert becomes active while you are driving in Germany, Autosteer should again be available once your vehicle is traveling below 90 mph (150 km/h).

If Autosteer is not available during your next drive, and remains unavailable throughout subsequent drives, schedule service at your convenience. Your vehicle is OK to drive in the meantime.
