Tesla Model 3 2017-2022 Owner's Manual: Activate Transport Mode

Transport Mode keeps the parking brake disengaged while winching Model 3 onto a flatbed truck. When active, Transport Mode displays a message indicating that the vehicle will remain free-rolling. The following are required to enable Transport Mode:

To activate Transport Mode:

  1. Ensure the vehicle is in Park.
  2.  Chock the tires or otherwise ensure Model 3 is secure.
  3. Press and hold the brake pedal, then on the touchscreen, touch Controls > Service > Towing. The touchscreen displays a message reminding you how to properly transport Model 3.
  4. Press and hold the Transport Mode button until it turns blue. Model 3 is now freerolling and can slowly be rolled (no faster than walking speed) or winched.

To cancel Transport Mode, shift Model 3 into Park.

Note: If Model 3 loses 12V power after Transport Mode is enabled, Transport Mode will cancel and the parking brake will be reapplied.

Caution: If the electrical system is not working, and you therefore cannot use the touchscreen to activate Transport Mode, use self-loading dollies or tire skates. Before doing so, always check the manufacturer's specifications and recommended loading capacity.

Note: If Model 3 has no 12V power, you need an external 12V power supply to open the hood or use the touchscreen
