There are a few possible reasons why your Tesla charging port keeps opening.
- The charge port door is not closing properly. This can happen if the door is damaged or if there is debris blocking it. To check if this is the case, try closing the door manually and see if it stays closed. If it does not, you may need to clean the door or have it repaired.
- The charge port door is being opened by a sensor. Some Tesla models have a sensor that opens the charge port door when the car is near a compatible charger. If this sensor is malfunctioning, it could be opening the door even when the car is not near a charger. To check if this is the case, try parking your car away from any chargers and see if the door still opens. If it does, you may need to have the sensor repaired.
- There is a software problem. Tesla vehicles are constantly updated with software updates, and sometimes these updates can cause problems. If you have recently updated your Tesla’s software, and the charging port door has started opening on its own, then it is possible that the update is to blame. To check if this is the case, try rolling back the software update.
If you have tried all of the above and your Tesla charging port is still opening, then you should contact Tesla customer support for help.
Here are some additional tips to prevent your Tesla charging port from opening:
- Make sure that the charge port door is clean and free of debris.
- Park your car away from any chargers when you are not charging.
- Update your Tesla’s software regularly.
