First Responder Loop
Model S is equipped with a first responder loop in the front trunk that can be double cut to disable high voltage in an emergency situation. Follow these steps to locate the first responder loop and disable the high voltage system.
- Open the hood (see Front Trunk).
- Remove the access panel by pulling it upwards to release the clips that hold it in place.
- Double cut the first responder loop to disable the high voltage system.WarningAlways double cut the first responder loop to remove an entire section. This prevents wires from accidentally reconnecting.WarningAfter deactivation, the high voltage system requires two minutes to de-energize.WarningEven if you have double cut the first responder loop, ALWAYS ASSUME THAT ALL HIGH VOLTAGE COMPONENTS ARE ENERGIZED! Cutting, crushing, or touching high voltage components can result in serious injury or death.
