How to open or lock glovebox on Tesla

To open the glovebox, touch
Controls > Glovebox
on the bottom corner of the touchscreen. The glovebox automatically opens and its light turns on.

To close the glovebox, push it upward until it clicks into its closed position.

Glovebox PIN

For additional security, you can protect the contents in your glovebox with a 4-digit PIN (Personal Identification Number).

To enable this setting, touch
Controls > Safety & Security > Glovebox PIN
and follow the on-screen prompts. When enabled, you are prompted to enter the PIN to open the glovebox.

To disable this setting, return to Safety & Security, select the toggle to disable and then enter the PIN.

If you forget your glovebox PIN, reset it by entering your Tesla login credentials, then follow the on-screen prompts.

NOTE: When you open the glovebox with both Glovebox PIN and Valet mode enabled, you are prompted for the glovebox PIN and taken out of Valet mode after the glovebox opens.

NOTE: If you leave the glovebox open, its light eventually turns off.

NOTE: The glovebox locks whenever closed and you lock Tesla using the mobile app, key card, you leave Tesla carrying your authenticated phone (if WalkAway Door Lock is turned on), or if Valet mode is active.

It does not lock when Tesla is locked by touching the lock icon on the touchscreen.

WARNING: When driving, keep the glovebox closed to prevent injury to a passenger if a collision or sudden stop occurs.
