Updated to 28.2 yesterday model S. Parked in garage, charger not connected, car off, keys in other room. Vehicle solenoids clicking, Right headlight comes on, more clinking then left headlight. More clicking vehicle raises more clinking then lowers. More clicking and repeats. Did hard reset nothing changed. Car possessed. What next. Any ideas?

It's very likely your 12 volt battery is low or dead cell (oddly enough the battery voltage detection doesn't seem to notice dead cells), and it's causing failures that the car is trying to work around. It may have also caused the firmware update not to complete. Plug the car in and let it go to sleep, and see if that fixes everything. If not, service is still an option.

EDIT: Sorry, was under the impression all of that stuff was happening AFTER the software update was completed. Which a low 12v battery can cause some of the background task tests to keep repeating. Normally it only does those tests once.

All the clicking and flashing is normal during a software update. What you don’t want to do is do a reset before the update is complete, that can cause the install to fail. Best to just go inside your house and wait until you get the message software update complete before touching anything. That being said, at this point, you’re going to need the SC to force another update.

Ended up doing a factory reset. Now it works fine. Beats me?

A factory reset is pretty serious, and should be the last resort. You want to try the power off option first (and sit in it for 3-5 minutes, not touching anything, until all the little noises stop).

Factory reset was the only thing that seemed to work. Tried unplugging, turning everything off, driving it, parked it and it still was cycling. Once I did the reset, it all stop, saved the latest update and put me back in California. Once I drove it out of the garage it recognized home and everything worked, but I did have to reset the garage door and gate and turn everything back on I turned off. Runs fine now.

You were correct, it was after the update.

Totally agree here, as I bricked Middie the first day I had her when I reset while an update was in progress.

Back on thread topic - installed 2019.28.2 today (from 24.2) and seems to me that EAP is MUCH better at anticipating traffic and therefore also very much smoother with acceleration, slowing/stopping and steering adjustments. Still not perfect (for example follow distance is much closer on a downhill than on the level or uphill for the same follow setting — and therefore not as smooth in particularly slowing/stopping on the downhill than in other conditions); but, sure felt much, much, much more improved and confident.

Quite the opposite for me, Max seems awfully nervous now on the roads I usually drive. Lots of jerky course corrections. YMMV :)

May not matter but I never stay in the car during the software update. Just adds a variable that isn't necessary. And for what it's worth I've never had a problem after an update.
Had my car for 16 months.

I’m seeing even more phantom braking in TACC than before updating from 24.2. Had one slowdown to about 15 mph in a 45 zone. No traffic behind or in front of me so I just let it happen to see how slow it would go.

Aside from an occasional failed update that works on the next try, neither have I since.

I noticed tonight, the display flipped from day to night mode right as the sun completely dipped behind the mountain range (3 minutes before the official sunset time for that area), and the mirrors dimmed approx 30-35 minutes later.
It has been a while since I've driven right at sunset/dusk, but this is earlier than how it was acting previously and seems to make much more sense with the actual ambient light levels. Previously, it seemed the mirrors wouldn't dim until more like an hour after sunset - at least for me.

I haven’t updated yet and I think you are correct; I’m on AP so often I never really noticed the mirrors.
