Tesla Model S Owners & Service Manuals

Tesla Model S: Park

Model S automatically shifts into Park whenever it determines that you are exiting the vehicle. For example, the driver's seat belt is unbuckled and the vehicle is stopped. Model S also automatically shifts into Park when the driver's door is opened or if no action is taken within one minute of shifting.

To manually shift into Park, press the brake pedal and touch the Park button on the touchscreen's drive mode strip. If the touchscreen is unavailable, press Park on the drive mode selector located on the center console.

NOTE: The touchscreen's drive mode strip displays the Park button only when the brake pedal is pressed and shifting into park is allowed based on the driving speed.

NOTE: You must always press the brake pedal to shift out of Park.

CAUTION: Model S will not shift out of Park if a charge cable is plugged in, or if the charge port is unable to determine whether a charging cable is plugged in. In situations when Model S does not shift out of Park, check the instrument panel or touchscreen for instructions on how to proceed.

WARNING: It is the driver's responsibility to always ensure the vehicle is in Park before exiting. Never rely on Model S to automatically shift into Park for you; it may not work in all circumstances.
