My husband and I took our first road trip to Napa this past weekend and we were pleasantly surprised that we could get from Tejon to our home in SD.
We did have one problem. An error saying "Check Tire Pressure System" kept appearing on the dash along with the tire pressure light. We called Tesla and they said to pull over and check to be sure our tires are at 42 psi (21" wheels), reboot the screen and dash. The alarms went off after a few miles but we checked at Harris ranch anyway and they were all between 42-44 and we re-booted for good measure.
The light cam back between Harris and Tejon and went away again and then came back on before we reached Tejon. This time we made sure every tire was at exactly 42 before setting out for LA. But the alarms came on twice more before reaching home, where our tires all measured 42.
We read that the alarm will come on and then turn itself off after driving a certain amount of time with the pressure fixed (10 miles?) so I think that's why it kept turning itself off. Question is, why did it come on? Anyone else have that problem? I would call my service center but they already have a laundry list of fixes they are supposed to be working on for me and I have a hard time getting return calls :(
On the bright-side, the car beat it's projected range so we were thrilled :)
