How do I lock a Tesla?

I’m house-sitting for a friend this weekend and they said that I could drive their Tesla. I’ve never driven one before but I figured most of it out. Now that I am back home, how do I lock it?

I hope you have fun house-sitting and test driving your friend’s car! When it comes to a Tesla the lock senses the key. If you’ve got the key on you and you walk away, the whole thing will lock up. Simple right?
When you’re inside of the car and you want it locked it’s also pretty easy. You can lock everything via the touch screen by selecting the lock icon.
If you are worried about your friend’s car while you’re out on the road it can help to have roadside assistance so you have peace of mind. With the Jerry app in your pocket, you’ll never have to worry about being stranded again. Jerry partners with a monthly roadside assistant to provide jump starts, lockout service, key replacement, and towing.
