Tesla Model Y Owners & Service Manuals

Tesla Model Y: Restricted Speed

On a controlled-access highway, the cruising speed reflects the speed limit, taking into consideration any off set you've specified using Speed Assist. However, if you choose to use Autosteer on residential roads, a road without a center divider, or a road where access is not limited, Autosteer may limit the maximum allowed cruising speed and the instrument panel displays a message indicating that speed is restricted. The restricted speed will be the speed limit of the road plus 5 mph (10 km/h).

In situations where the speed limit cannot be detected when Autosteer is engaged, Autosteer reduces your driving speed and limits the set cruising speed to 45 mph (70 km/h). Although you can manually accelerate to exceed the limited speed, Model Y may not brake for detected obstacles. Autosteer slows down to the limited speed when you release the accelerator pedal. When you leave the road, or disengage Autosteer by using the steering wheel, you can increase your set speed again, if desired.

Hold Steering Wheel

Autosteer determines how best to steer Model Y. When active, Autosteer requires you to hold the steering wheel. If it does not detect your hands on the steering wheel for a period of time, a flashing blue light appears at the top of the car status section of the touchscreen and the following message displays:

Apply slight turning force to steering wheel

Autosteer detects your hands by recognizing slight resistance as the steering wheel turns, or from you manually turning the steering wheel very lightly (without enough force to take over steering). Autosteer also qualifies your hands as being detected if you engage a turn signal or use a button or scroll wheel on the steering wheel.

NOTE: When your hands are detected, the message disappears and Autosteer resumes normal operation.

Autosteer requires that you pay attention to your surroundings and remain prepared to take control at any time. If Autosteer still does not detect your hands on the steering wheel, the flashing light on the car status section of the touchscreen increases in frequency and a chime sounds.

If you repeatedly ignore Autosteer's prompts to apply slight force to the steering wheel, Autosteer disables for the rest of the drive and displays the following message requesting you to drive manually. If you don't resume manual steering, Autosteer sounds a continuous chime, turns on the warning flashers, and slows the vehicle to a complete stop.

Autosteer unavailable for the rest of this drive. Hold steering wheel to drive manually.

For the rest of the drive, you must steer manually. Autosteer is available again on your next drive (after you stop and shift Model Y into Park).

Take Over Immediately

In situations where Autosteer is unable to steer Model Y, Autosteer sounds a warning chime and displays the following message on the instrument panel:

Take over immediately

When you see this message, TAKE OVER STEERING IMMEDIATELY.

Canceling Autosteer

Autosteer cancels when:

  • You press the brake pedal.
  • You start steering manually.
  • You exceed the maximum speed at which Autosteer operates - 90 mph (150 km/h).
  • You shift.
  • A door is opened.
  • An Automatic Emergency Braking event occurs

When Autosteer cancels, it sounds a chime and the Autosteer icon either turns gray to indicate that Autosteer is no longer active, or disappears to indicate that it is not currently available.

NOTE: If Autosteer Activation is set to Double Click and Autosteer cancels because you started steering manually, Traffic-Aware Cruise Control remains active. If Autosteer Activation is set to Single Click and Autosteer cancels because you started steering manually, Traffic- Aware Cruise Control also cancels.

NOTE: If you move the drive stalk upward and hold it up for more than one second, Model Y shifts into Neutral after canceling Autosteer.

To disable Autosteer so it is no longer available, touch Controls > Autopilot > Autosteer (Beta).
