To pair a phone, follow these steps while sitting inside Model 3:

  1. Ensure both the touchscreen and the phone are powered on.
  2. On your phone, enable Bluetooth and ensure it is discoverable.


Note: Some phones may require you to go to Bluetooth Settings for the remainder of the procedure.


  1. Touch the Bluetooth icon on the top of the touchscreen.
  2. On the touchscreen, touch Add New Device > Start Search. The touchscreen displays a list of all available Bluetooth devices within operating distance.
  3. On the touchscreen, touch the phone with which you want to pair. Within a few seconds, the touchscreen displays a randomly generated number, and your phone should display the same number.
  4. Check that the number displayed on your phone matches the number displayed on the touchscreen. Then, on your phone, confirm that you want to pair.
  5. If prompted on your phone, specify whether you want to allow Model 3 to access your contacts and media files.


When paired, Model 3 automatically connects to the phone, and the touchscreen displays the Bluetooth symbol next to the phone’s name to indicate that the connection is active.
