2016 Tesla Model X Owners Manual

Braking Systems
Emergency Braking
In an emergency, fully press the brake pedal
and maintainfirm  pressure, even on low
traction surfaces. The ABS varies the braking
pressure to each wheel according to the
amount of traction available. This prevents
wheels from locking and ensures that you stop
as safely as possible.
Model X has an anti-lock braking system
(ABS) that prevents the wheels from locking
when you apply maximum brake pressure. This
improves steering control during heavy
braking in most road conditions.
During emergency braking conditions, the
ABS constantly monitors the speed of each
wheel and varies the brake pressure according
to the grip available.
Warning: Do not pump the brake pedal.
Doing so interrupts operation of the ABS
and can increase braking distance.
The alteration of brake pressure can be felt as
a pulsing sensation through the brake pedal.
This demonstrates that the ABS is operating
and is not a cause for concern. Keepfirm   and
steady pressure on the brake pedal while
experiencing the pulsing.
Warning: Always maintain a safe distance
from the vehicle in front of you and be
aware of hazardous driving conditions.
While the ABS can improve stopping
distance, it cannot overcome the laws of
physics. It also does not prevent the
danger of hydroplaning (where a layer of
water prevents direct contact between
the tires and the road).
The ABS indicatorflashesbriefly    on
the instrument panel when youfirst
start Model X. If this indicator lights
up at any other time, an ABS fault
has occurred and the ABS is not
operating. Contact Tesla. The braking
system remains fully operational and
is notaffected  by an ABS failure.
However, braking distances may
If Model X is equipped with Autopilot
hardware, Automatic Emergency Braking
automatically applies full braking in situations
where a collision is considered imminent (see
Automatic Emergency Braking on page 89).
Brake Wear
Model X brake pads are equipped with wear
indicators. A wear indicator is a thin metal
strip attached to the brake pad that squeals as
it rubs against the rotor when the pad wears
down. This squealing sound indicates that the
brake pads have reached the end of their
service life and require replacement. To stop
the squealing, contact Tesla Service.
If the instrument panel displays this
indicator at any time other than
displayingbriefly  when youfirst   start
Model X, a brake system fault is
detected or the brakefluid  level is
low. Contact Tesla immediately.
Brakes must be periodically inspected visually
by removing the tire and wheel. For detailed
specifications and service limits for rotors and
brake pads, see Brakes on page 158.
Warning: Neglecting to replace worn
brake pads results in damage to the
braking system and can create a braking
