Tesla Model X Owners & Service Manuals

Tesla Model X: Valet Mode

When Model X is in Valet mode, the following restrictions apply:

  • Speed is limited to 70 mph (113 km/h).
  • Maximum acceleration and power are limited.
  • Front trunk and glovebox are locked.
  • Home and Work locations are not available in the navigation system.
  • Voice commands are disabled.
  • Autopilot convenience features are disabled.
  • The Allow Mobile Access setting cannot be changed
  • HomeLink (if available in your market region) is not accessible.
  • Driver Profiles are not accessible.
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are disabled. When Model X is in Valet mode, you cannot pair new Bluetooth devices or view or delete existing paired devices. However, if a Bluetooth-paired device or a known Wi-Fi network is within range, Model X connects to it.

NOTE: Model X does not automatically shift when in Valet Mode.

Starting Valet Mode

With Model X in Park, touch the driver profile icon at the top of the Controls screen, then touch Valet Mode.

The first time you enter Valet mode, the touchscreen prompts you to create a 4-digit PIN you will use to cancel Valet mode.

When Valet mode is active, the instrument panel displays the word Valet while the driver profile changes to Valet Mode on the touchscreen.

You can also use the mobile app to start and cancel Valet mode (if Model X is in Park). When using the mobile app, you do not need to enter a PIN because you are already required to log into the app using your Tesla Account credentials.

NOTE: If the PIN to Drive setting is enabled (see PIN to Drive), you must enter the driving PIN before you can define or enter a Valet PIN. Once in Valet mode, Model X can be driven without the valet needing to enter the driving PIN.

NOTE: The PIN to Drive setting is not available when Valet mode is active.

If you forget your valet PIN, reset it from inside Model X by entering your Tesla Account credentials (which also cancels Valet mode). You can also reset your PIN using the mobile app.

WARNING: Do not use Valet mode when towing a trailer. The torque limitations of Valet mode can make it difficult for Model X to pull a trailer up a hill.

Canceling Valet Mode

With Model X in Park, touch the Valet Mode driver profile icon at the top of the Controls screen, and enter your 4-digit PIN.

When you cancel Valet mode, all settings associated with the most recently used driver profile and climate control settings are restored, and all features are available.

NOTE: You do not need to enter a PIN to cancel Valet mode from the mobile app.
