Prevent Song Restarts in Your Tesla – Pro Tip

If you’re someone who enjoys listening to podcasts or songs on your Tesla’s audio system, you may have experienced the frustration of having them restart from the beginning when you return to your car. This can happen if the car shuts down completely, causing the audio system to reset.

To prevent this from happening, you can use a simple trick: putting the car in Neutral in your safety menu and manually applying the parking brake. This will keep the car from shutting down completely and allow you to leave and return without losing your place in your podcast or song.

It’s important to note that you should manually lock the car before leaving, as it will not automatically lock when in Neutral with the parking brake engaged.

This tip can be especially useful for those who frequently run errands or need to step out of the car for a short period of time but want to continue listening to their audio content without interruption.
