Python interface for connecting to Tesla vehicles directly using the BLE API

Project description


Python library for communicating with Tesla vehicles directly using the BLE API

:bangbang: WARNING: This library is not supported by Tesla, and it could break at any moment. It should be noted that this library stores private keys and other sensitive data unencrypted on your machine. I am not responsible for any (extremely unlikely) damage done to your car.


pip install pyteslable

from pyteslable import BLE
tesla_ble = BLE("private_key.pem")

print("Scanning for vehicles...")
list = tesla_ble.scan()

# Connect to a specific vehicle by BLE address
vehicle = list.getAddress("05:eb:6d:b7:f7:92")
if not vehicle.isAdded():
  print("Tap your keycard on the center console")
# Now we are ready to send commands!

Cryptography Library Modification

If you have the latest cryptography library, you will likely get an error about not supporting 4-bit nonces. For now, the best solution I have is to simply modify the if statement that produces the error.


Huge props to Lex Nastin for putting together some documentation for the Tesla BLE API. Check out the documentation here.

Also many thanks to Kevin Dewald from Neuralink for the BLE library!
