TPMS Gets Confused - 2013 Tesla Model S Long-Term Road Test

2013 Tesla Model S: TPMS Gets Confused

May 13, 2013

2013 Tesla Model S

We recently performed the first track-test of our long-term 2013 Tesla Model S, and during the 60-0 mph braking test, this message flashed up on the screen and on the instrument panel as well.

I poked around for a few minutes looking for a screen that displays individual tire pressures to no avail. I got out of the car and made a visual check for obvious deflation.

Nope. I was wheeling the car back to staging to put a gauge on each tire when the message simply disappeared from both displays. Huh. I wonder what happened.
