Back on April 3rd Sheryl Crow tweeted Elon Musk to complain she was stuck in a parking lot with a black screen. It turned out the screen brightness at night was turned down too low to see.
Elon promised a software fix for this issue.
Last night I got the 2019.20.2.1 (Sheryl Crow) update. When I got into my car this evening I could barely make out what was on the screen and reversing was guesswork; the rear-view monitor was so dark. I couldn’t make out street names. I took the screen setting off automatic and set the brightness myself. The car worked just fine on automatic before the Sheryl Crow update. Automatic now turns the screen down to 12% which is way too dark, 40% is more like it. Now I need to tweek my screen brightness as it gets light or dark outside, the automatic feature is no longer of use to me.
Hey Elon can we have a Sheryl Crow button. I’d like to turn that off so my car works as it used to when I bought it back in October 2018. I don’t mind Sheryl having a special little snowflake button just for her, just give me the same screen automatic brightness feature I bought back in October 2018.
Yes, I have exactly the same problem with the new update. Hopefully Tesla will fix it soon.
We are not alone. A colleague at work has the same issue and there is a slew of complaints on the Tesla forums.
