Experiencing a bug that prevents you from logging into your Spotify account on your Tesla’s integrated Spotify service can be frustrating.

This common issue often manifests as an endless login screen loop. Here’s a step-by-step guide to troubleshooting and resolving this problem to get your tunes rolling while you drive.

1. Soft Reboot Your Tesla:

A soft reboot is usually the quickest fix for this Spotify login loop:

  • Ensure your Tesla is in park.
  • Hold down the brake pedal.
  • Simultaneously hold down the two scroll buttons on either side of the steering wheel until the touchscreen turns off and reboots.

2. Check Your Connectivity Subscription:

Ensure you have subscribed to Tesla’s Premium Connectivity which is essential for accessing Spotify:

  • This subscription is priced at $9.99 per month and comes with added features like Traffic Visualization, Satellite-View maps, and more.
  • You can subscribe right from your Tesla screen or via the Tesla app on your phone.

3. Reset Your Spotify Password:

Some users have found success by resetting their Spotify password. Try this if the above steps didn’t resolve the issue.

4. Accessing Spotify on Your Tesla:

Tesla firmware (2019 onwards) includes an integrated Spotify app, enhancing your music experience:

  • A premium Spotify subscription is required which costs between $4.99 to $15.99 per month depending on the plan.
  • To access, tap the Music icon on your Tesla screen, select Spotify, and log in to your account.

5. Alternative Music Streaming Options:

If you prefer not to opt for Premium Connectivity or Spotify Premium, there are alternative ways to enjoy music on your Tesla:

  • Convert Spotify songs to MP3, AAC, WAV, or M4A files using a Spotify music converter on your desktop, then transfer them to a USB drive. Plug this into your Tesla’s USB port to play the files.
  • Alternatively, connect your phone to your Tesla via Bluetooth and stream music as you would in any other modern car.

6. Hard Reboot (if needed):

If the soft reboot doesn’t resolve the issue, a hard reboot might be necessary. It’s similar to a soft reboot but turns off all of Tesla’s systems, not just the infotainment system:

  • Follow the same steps as a soft reboot but keep holding the buttons until the Tesla T logo appears on the screen.

Final Remarks:

Tesla’s integrated Spotify feature elevates your driving experience by providing a seamless music streaming service. While bugs like the login loop can be a hiccup, simple troubleshooting steps like a soft reboot or checking your subscriptions can get you back on track.

If problems persist, considering reaching out to Tesla or Spotify customer support for further assistance.
