How do you lock a Tesla X?

My dad just purchased a Tesla Model X. He’s really excited, but I think he’s also a bit overwhelmed by the technology. I want to help him get the basics down, but I’ve never used a Tesla. How do you lock the doors on a Tesla?

A Tesla Model X is a very cool car, but it can be overwhelming to learn about all of its high-tech features. Thankfully, locking a Tesla X is easy!
There are a few different ways to lock the Model X, including:
  • Walking away with the key fob. Anytime your Tesla detects you walking away with the key fob, it will automatically lock the doors. To ensure this feature is enabled, you can go to Controls, Vehicle, and Walk Away Door Lock.
  • Locking manually. You can manually lock your Tesla while inside by touching the icon on the touchscreen.
  • Using the key fob. If you click the top of the key fob once, it will lock all the doors of your Tesla.
  • Using the key card. The Model X comes with two key cards you can use to lock and unlock it. To lock the doors, hold the key card up to the driver’s side door pillar.
  • Using the mobile app. You can set up your dad’s phone as a key to lock the car. When his phone is connected via Bluetooth, his Model X will automatically lock as he walks away.
Once you get your dad set up with the basic features of his Model X, make sure he has the proper car insurance to protect it. Jerry will help him find the best deals.
