THE MAIN SCREEN, MCU, ON MY Tesla Model S, 2015 70D BEGAN REBOOTING DURING DRIVING. ON SATURDAY, JULY 4TH, 2020, THE CAR WOULD NOT START AT ALL. TESLA CUSTOMER SERVICE COACHED ME ON GETTING THE CAR TO WORK WITHOUT THE MAIN SCREEN, HOWEVER IT IS NOT SAFE. THE BRAKE LIGHTS, SIGNAL LIGHTS, REAR CAMERA DO NOT WORK, VERIFIED BY MY SPOUSE. FURTHER, MOST OF THE OTHER CONTROLS, E.G. DE-FOG, AIR CONDITIONING, ROOF, ETC, DO NOT WORK. THE RE-BOOTING OF THE SCREEN, WHERE IT WOULD BLANK OUT WITHOUT WARNING, AND EVENTUALLY COME BACK LATER, OCCURRED WHILE THE CAR WAS IN MOTION -- VERY DISTRACTING. AT THIS POINT, THE MAIN DISPLAY, OR MCU, IS "BRICKED" -- IT WON'T DISPLAY ANYTHING AT ALL, SO THAT HAS HAPPENED WHEN THE CAR IS STATIONARY.

The vehicle was parked and locked. When i unlocked the car and opened the door, the infotainment screen on the tesla will not boot up. As a result, the side rear view mirrors will not unfold and the rear view camera cannot be viewed. In addition, the climate cannot be adjusted. I attempted to reboot the infotainment system several times and locked & unlocked the car, but the infotainment screen did not turn on and the side mirrors will not unfold.

The touchscreen which controls everything including climate, navigation, rear view camera, sun roof, windshield heater , music etc *extremely slowed down* after upgrading the autopilot hardware to full self driving (fsd) computer. The touch screen response is very slow or often fails. Now tesla is asking $2500 to upgrade for faster & more responsive touch screen. I believe the latest fsd upgrades & over the air upgrades are showering the response of older cars and tesla is monetizing this opportunity
