Tesla Model Y: Activate Transport Mode

Transport Mode keeps the parking brake disengaged while winching Model Y onto a flatbed truck. When active, Transport Mode displays a message indicating that the vehicle will remain free-rolling. The following are required to enable Transport Mode:

  • Low voltage power. You are unable to use the touchscreen to activate Transport Mode if Model Y has no power.
  • Model Y must detect a key. Transport Mode is available only when a key is detected.

To activate Transport Mode:

1. Ensure the vehicle is in Park.

2. Chock the tires and make sure Model Y is secure.

3. Press and hold the brake pedal, and then on the touchscreen, touch Controls > Service > Towing. The touchscreen displays a message reminding you how to properly transport Model Y.

4. Press and hold the Transport Mode button until it turns blue. Model Y is now free-rolling and can slowly be rolled (no faster than walking speed) for short distances or winched.

To cancel Transport Mode, shift Model Y into Park.

NOTE: If your vehicle is equipped with a low voltage Lead-Acid Battery (see Jump Starting the Low Voltage Battery): Transport Mode may cancel if Model Y loses low voltage power after Transport Mode is enabled.

CAUTION: If the electrical system is not working, and you therefore cannot use the touchscreen to activate Transport Mode, use self-loading dollies or tire skates. Before doing so, always check the manufacturer's specifications and recommended loading capacity.
