Tesla is continuously working on improving its Service Mode to enhance the diagnostic capabilities and ease of maintenance for its vehicles. In the latest Tesla software update, version 2023.38, a new brakes service panel has been introduced, allowing for the diagnosis of wheel speed sensors and various brake systems.
The new brakes panel, accessible in Service Mode, provides owners and service technicians with the ability to diagnose the Electronic Park Brake (EPB), Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Electromechanical Brake Booster (iBoostor), and wheel speed sensors. Additionally, certain actions can be performed, such as releasing EPBs, bleeding brakes, and running a stiffness test.
This expansion of Tesla’s Service Mode is part of the company’s ongoing efforts to improve the efficiency of its service centers and reduce customer wait times. Elon Musk has emphasized the importance of optimizing service operations, and these updates are likely to contribute to that goal.
