First, the car owner who had a serious accident questioned that the model 3 had a serious out of control safety hazard, and then it was exposed that the app had a potential failure, Causes the personal vehicle to disappear, and can control the other person's vehicle remotely. Tesla's been

A few days ago, a netizen posted an article on the Internet saying,After opening the Tesla app, I found that my car was missing, but someone else's car appeared.(Click here to watch the video)

What's more, what's even more surprising is that by using the various control functions of Tesla app, they can remotely control the car hundreds of kilometers away.Including unlocking the door, opening the air conditioning and ventilation, speed limit and other functions.


Owners believe that if they can control other people's vehicles, in turn, others may be able to control their own vehicles.After careful consideration, how dare you drive such a vehicle in the future?

In response, Tesla also made a response. Yesterday evening,After thorough investigation, it was found that the maintenance staff mistakenly input the similar vehicle identification number when replacing the on-board computer, which led to the information mismatch.

We immediately corrected the mistakes and took a series of measures to prevent them from happening again. We are deeply sorry for the trouble caused to the two owners and will keep in touch with them and actively take corresponding responsibilities.


It's just that Tesla's app problems are the cause,Is it all over if the maintenance staff's mistakes and mistakes are counted? I'm afraid it's not that simple.

On August 20 of this year, there was also an article from the circle of friends of domestic car owners saying that there were five other Tesla models in their Tesla app,Through vehicle positioning, it is found that the five Tesla models are all far away from Europe.

And Tesla App as like as two peas in the above.Its own Tesla app can't find its own vehicle, but it can remotely control five Tesla as far away as Europe.

According to Tesla's reply above, such an error is due to the wrong input of similar vehicle identification number when replacing the on-board computer during vehicle maintenance, resulting in information mismatch.

But the owner was able to control five Tesla vehicles at the same time,Can the computer of one car input the vehicle identification numbers of five other vehicles at the same time?

obvious,According to Tesla's reply, such a wrong logic may not convince everyone.

Such app program failure is related to personal and vehicle safety, so it is worth every Tesla owner's attention. We will continue to pay attention to this matter in the future.
