Tesla Model S: To Use Autopark

When driving, follow these steps to allow Autopark to maneuver Model S into a parking space:

1. While driving slowly on a public road, monitor the instrument panel to determine when Autopark has detected a parking space. The instrument panel will display a parking icon if the vehicle detects a potential parking spot.


NOTE: The parking icon appears only if the vehicle's position and/or the circumstances of the surrounding area are such that Autopark can determine an appropriate driving path. If Autopark cannot determine an appropriate path (for example, when driving on a narrow street where moving into the parking space causes the front of the vehicle to extend into the adjacent lane), you can either reposition the vehicle, find a different parking space, or park manually.

2. Check to determine if the detected parking space is appropriate and safe. If so, pull forward and stop approximately one car length ahead of the parking space (as you normally would when parallel parking or when backing into a perpendicular parking space).

3. Release the steering yoke, shift Model S into Reverse, then touch Start Autopark on the touchscreen.

4. Release the steering yoke, then touch and hold Autopark in the drive mode strip on the touchscreen. You can release the button once Autopark engages.

5. Autopark displays a message when parking is complete.

NOTE: If you press the brake pedal when Autopark is actively parking Model S, the parking process pauses until you touch Resume on the touchscreen.

WARNING: Never depend on Autopark to find a parking space that is legal, suitable, and safe. Autopark may not always detect objects in the parking space. Always perform visual checks to confirm that a parking space is appropriate and safe.

WARNING: When Autopark is actively steering Model S, the steering yoke moves in accordance with Autopark's adjustments. Do not interfere with the movement of the steering yoke. Doing so cancels Autopark.

WARNING: During the parking sequence, continually check your surroundings. Be prepared to apply the brakes to avoid vehicles, pedestrians, or objects.

WARNING: When Autopark is active, monitor the touchscreen and instrument panel to ensure that you are aware of the instructions that Autopark is providing.
