TESLA X Side Door Malfunction, Does This Make the Car a Lemon?
Any time that you experience a Tesla Model X side door that won’t open, it may be a malfunction that is related to a lemon defect. The Tesla X door should open in the rear, if the touchscreen, door pillar, program the “enable closing all doors with key fob” feature, or the top of the key fob is touched three times in the middle to close the rear doors of this vehicle.
Suggestions for How to Open the Tesla X Rear Door
The Tesla Model X rear doors open up and curve into the vehicle. This is an innovative way for the doors to open, which open up onto the roof area of the car. If you are in a tight parking spot, this door more than comes in handy, as it does not need to open out onto another vehicle nearby. The doors are completely automatic, and can be opened from using:
- The touchscreen on the dashboard of the vehicle
- The phone key fob
- The interior handle on the door
- The exterior handle of the door
- Press the brake pedal to close the driver door
- Press the inside door jamb area
- Press the key fob on the corresponding side as the rear door
- Outside press the rear door handle to open the door
- Sensor in the doors adjust depending on objects or cars in the surrounding areas
The Tesla X doors close automatically with a “soft close,” which will close itself softly once pushed in the general direction to close. It is always the driver’s responsibility to ensure that there is nothing in the way of the automatic doors closing, to ensure people are safe around the vehicle.
The idea of being able to enter the Tesla Model X car with both hands full and not needing to touch the door seems highly appealing. The falcon wing doors that can open on their own seem to be a perk of owning a truly futuristic car, that is until it is a defective feature of your Tesla Model X vehicle.
Tesla X Rear Driver Door Malfunctions Can Be Hazardous on the Roads
While a Tesla X driver is driving down the roads, the Tesla rear door defects can seriously affect the drivability of the vehicle. If the rear door hatch latches at inopportune times, is unable to open properly when engaged, or does not properly release on the cable, it can be difficult to feel safe in the vehicle. Tesla X doors can have an issue with the microswitch wiring harness, or other components of the door latch. If this is the case in an accident, it may prevent a passenger from exiting the vehicle safely in an actual emergency.
