Tesla Audio Not Working

How to Fix Tesla Audio Not Working

One of the most common Tesla audio problems I’ve experienced is Bluetooth not connecting. This can be frustrating, especially if you’re trying to listen to music or podcasts on a long road trip.

Once, I was on a road trip to California, and my Bluetooth stopped connecting to my Tesla. I tried everything I could think of, but nothing worked. I restarted my Tesla. I forgot my Tesla from my phone’s Bluetooth settings and then paired it again, and I even checked my Tesla’s software for updates. But nothing worked. I was starting to get really frustrated. I was in the middle of nowhere and couldn’t listen to music. I decided to try one last thing: I turned off my phone and turned it back on. And it worked! As soon as my phone turned back on, my Bluetooth connected to my Tesla, and I could listen to music again.

This article will discuss the most common Tesla audio problems and their solutions. I will also provide some additional tips for troubleshooting Tesla audio problems independently.

Tesla Audio Not working.

There are several reasons why Tesla Audio is not working. Some of the most common reasons include:

  • Bluetooth is not connecting.
  • The audio function turned off
  • Software bugs
  • Audio cutting out
  • The audio quality is poor.

Now that I’ve outlined some of the most common causes of Tesla audio not working, I’ll be giving solutions for them.

Let’s get started!

1. Bluetooth is not connecting.

Solution 1: Check your Bluetooth settings.

I’ve encountered situations where the Tesla audio wasn’t working, and I realized it was simply because I didn’t even turn on my Bluetooth. So, this might also be the case for you. So, ensure Bluetooth is enabled on your device and your Tesla is visible to other devices.

Solution 2: Restart your Tesla.

Restarting your Tesla is a quick and easy solution to fix minor software glitches, which might be the reason for your audio not working.

There are two ways to restart a Tesla:

  • Soft restart

To soft restart your Tesla, press and hold both scroll wheels on the steering wheel until the touchscreen turns off. This may take up to 10 seconds. Once the touchscreen turns off, wait a few seconds, and then the Tesla logo will appear. The touchscreen will restart after about 30 seconds.

  • Hard restart

To hard restart your Tesla, go to the Controls menu and tap on Safety & Security. Then, tap Power Off. Wait at least two minutes without interacting with the vehicle. Do not open the doors, touch the brake pedal, or touch the screen. After two minutes, press the brake pedal or open the door to wake the vehicle.

Solution 3: Re-pair your device’s Bluetooth settings.

Another solution for fixing Tesla audio not working is by pairing your Tesla to your phone’s Bluetooth setting. Forget your Tesla from your Bluetooth settings and pair it again. It’s basically what you do when trying to pair your phone to another device but having issues.

To do this, go to your device’s Bluetooth settings and find your Tesla in the list of paired devices. Tap on your Tesla and select “Forget this device.” Then, pair your Tesla with your device again.

Solution 4: Update your Tesla’s software.

Tesla regularly releases software updates that include bug fixes and improvements. To check for a software update, go to the Controls menu and tap on Software. If there’s a new update, download and install it.

Solution 5: Restart your phone.

Turn off your phone and then turn it back on. This can sometimes fix your Bluetooth problems. I can attest to that.

Solution 6: Try connecting to a different Bluetooth device.

If you can connect to another Bluetooth device, then the problem is likely with your Tesla. If you cannot connect to any Bluetooth devices, then the problem is likely with your device.

Solution 7: Reset your Tesla’s Bluetooth settings.

Resetting your Tesla’s Bluetooth setting can help you get your audio to keep working. To do this, go to the Controls menu, tap on Software, and then tap on Reset. Select “Bluetooth” and then tap on “Reset.”

2. Audio function turned off

Solution 1: Check the audio function toggle.

The audio function toggle is located in the Controls menu. Tap on the Controls icon and then tap on the Audio icon. Make sure that the audio function toggle is turned on.

Solution 2: Restart your Tesla.

Restarting your computer can often fix minor software glitches that may be causing the audio function not to work.

Solution 3: Check the audio source.

Make sure that you have selected the correct audio source. To check the audio source, tap on the Audio icon in the Controls menu and then the Source icon.

Solution 4: Update your Tesla’s software.

Tesla regularly releases software updates that include bug fixes and improvements. To check for a software update, go to the Controls menu and tap on Software.

Solution 5: Reset your Tesla’s audio setting.

To reset your Tesla’s audio setting, go to the Controls menu, tap on Software, and then tap on Reset. Select “Audio” and then tap on “Reset.”

3. Software bugs

How to fix software bugs

The most common solution for troubleshooting software bugs in Tesla Audio is to restart your Tesla. This can often fix minor software glitches that may be causing the problem. You can also try restarting your Tesla’s audio system by going to Controls > Software > Reset > Audio > Reset.

If restarting your Tesla or audio system doesn’t fix the problem, you can try updating your Tesla’s software. Tesla regularly releases software updates that include bug fixes and improvements. To check for a software update, go to Controls > Software.

If you’ve tried all of the above and the software bug is still causing problems, you can try resetting your Tesla’s audio settings. To do this, go to Controls > Software > Reset > Audio > Reset.

If resetting your audio settings doesn’t fix the problem, you may need to contact Tesla support for assistance.

4. Audio cutting out

Solution 1: Check the volume.

Check to make sure that the volume is turned up on both your Tesla and your device, as that could be the reason your audio isn’t working. I remember when my wife had an issue with the audio on her Tesla, only to realize that the issue was that the volume on her phone was down.

Solution 2: Check the audio source.

When checking the audio source, make sure that you have selected the correct audio source.

Solution 3: Reset your Tesla’s audio settings.

When resetting your Tesla’s audio setting, go to the Controls menu, tap on Software, and then tap on Reset. Select “Audio” and then tap on “Reset.”

Solution 4: Check the audio cables.

If you are using an audio cable to connect your device to your Tesla, make sure that the cable is properly plugged in at both ends.

Just like with Bluetooth, it’s possible the cable wasn’t properly connected.

Solution 5: Try a different audio device.

If you are able to play audio through a different audio device, then the problem is likely with your Tesla’s speakers or audio system.

5. Audio quality is poor.

The solutions for poor audio quality are basically similar to what you’ll do when your audio is cutting out.

Conclusion

There are a number of things you can try to fix about Tesla Audio if it is not working. The most common solutions are to restart your Tesla, restart your Tesla’s audio system, update your Tesla’s software, and reset your Tesla’s audio settings. If you have tried all of this and you’re still facing the issue, you may need to contact Tesla support for assistance.
