If you’re trying to remove a Bluetooth device from your Tesla’s connections but are encountering issues, this comprehensive guide will provide you with several methods to resolve the problem. 

By following these troubleshooting steps, you can successfully disconnect and forget a Bluetooth device from your Tesla.

Deleting a Device from Tesla’s Bluetooth Settings

To “delete” or “forget” a device from your Tesla’s Bluetooth settings, tap the Bluetooth symbol located at the top-right corner of your Tesla screen. Find your device in the list, and tap the “disconnect” option. Your device should no longer be connected to your Tesla via Bluetooth.

However, if your Tesla still won’t forget the device, there are other troubleshooting steps to consider.

Remove the Connection on Both Devices

Sometimes, your Tesla Model S might not forget a Bluetooth device because you need to remove the connection on both the car and the device. To fully remove a device, follow these steps:

  1. In your Tesla, go to Controls > Bluetooth > Settings, and select “Forget Device.”
  2. On your phone, open your Settings, go to Bluetooth, and remove the connection to your Tesla.

By removing the connection on both devices, you should be able to resolve the issue and successfully forget the Bluetooth device.

Perform a Four Finger Reset (FFR)

If you’re still having issues with your Tesla not forgetting a Bluetooth device, you can try performing a Four Finger Reset (FFR). 

To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Ensure all doors on your Tesla are closed.
  2. Place your foot on the brake pedal and hold it down.
  3. Press and hold the scroll buttons on the steering wheel.
  4. Continue pressing the brake and the buttons until the screen resets.

The FFR can help resolve various issues, including Bluetooth device connectivity problems.

Turn Off Bluetooth on the Device First

Another potential solution to consider is turning off Bluetooth on the device you’re trying to remove before deleting it from the list in your Tesla. After turning off Bluetooth on the device, remove the key in the Tesla app while far away from the car. 

This approach might help resolve issues with your Tesla not forgetting the Bluetooth device.

Try Scroll Wheel Reboot or Brake Pedal Reboot

If you’ve tried the above methods and your Tesla still won’t forget the Bluetooth device, you can attempt a scroll wheel reboot or brake pedal reboot. 

These reboots can help resolve various software glitches, including issues related to Bluetooth connectivity.

Check for Software Updates

Occasionally, issues with Bluetooth devices can be related to your Tesla’s software version. For example, some users have reported Bluetooth connectivity issues after upgrading to the 2022.24.5 software version. 

In this case, you might want to check for software updates and ensure that you’re running the latest version available. Updates can help fix known issues and improve overall functionality.

Contact Tesla Support

If none of the above troubleshooting steps resolve the issue of your Tesla not forgetting a Bluetooth device, you may want to reach out to Tesla Support for further assistance. They can provide guidance on any additional steps to take and help identify any underlying issues that might be causing the problem.
