Tesla Model 3: Stop Light and Stop Sign Warning (U.S. only)

Tesla Model 3 2017-2022 Owner's Manual / Autopilot / Autosteer / Stop Light and Stop Sign Warning (U.S. only)

Depending on market region or vehicle configuration, Stop Light and/or Stop Sign Warning may not be available on your vehicle.

While Autosteer is in use, Model 3 displays a warning on the touchscreen and sounds a chime if it detects that you are likely to run through a red stop light or stop sign. If this happens, TAKE IMMEDIATE CORRECTIVE ACTION! The visual and audible warnings cancel after a few seconds, or when you press the brake pedal, whichever comes first.

Note: Touch Controls > Autopilot > Full Self- Driving Visualization Preview to display more details about the roadway and its surroundings, such as road markings, stop signs, stop lights, objects (such as trash cans and poles), etc.

Caution: Stop Light and Stop Sign Warning require the vehicle's map to know that a particular stop light or stop sign exists in a certain location. It may be unaware of new stop lights or stop signs that are not captured in the map data.

Therefore, Stop Light and Stop Sign Warning may not detect all stop lights and stop signs due to potential map inaccuracies.

Warning: Stop Light and Stop Sign Warning do not apply the brakes or decelerate Model 3 and may not detect all stop lights and stop signs. Stop Light and Stop Sign Warning are designed for guidance purposes only and are not a substitute for attentive driving and sound judgment. Keep your eyes on the road when driving and never depend on Stop Light and Stop Sign Warning to warn you of a stop light or stop sign.

Warning: Stop Light and Stop Sign Warning are designed to only warn you when approaching a visible red stop sign, solid red or later portion of a yellow traffic light; it may not issue warnings at intersections with flashing lights and does not warn you of yield signs or temporary stop and yield signs (such as in construction areas). Additionally, Stop Light and Stop Sign Warning will not warn you of an approaching stop light or stop sign if you are pressing the accelerator pedal or brake pedal (which disables Autosteer).
