When using the Mobile Connector, first plug the Mobile Connector into the power outlet, and then plug in Model 3. For more information about your Mobile Connector, see the Mobile Connector Owner's Manual (available on the touchscreen).

Open the charge port door using the touchscreen, plug the adapter into the charging port on Model 3, and then connect the station's charging connector to the adapter.
