View Tesla JSON API Documentation

This is unofficial documentation of the Tesla JSON API used by the iOS and Android apps. The API provides functionality to monitor and control the Model S (and future Tesla vehicles) remotely. The project provides both a documention of the API and a Go library for accessing it.


go get github.com/jsgoecke/tesla


You may get your tokens to use as client_id and client_secret here.


Here's an example (more in the /examples project directory):

func main() {
	client, err := tesla.NewClient(
			ClientID:     os.Getenv("TESLA_CLIENT_ID"),
			ClientSecret: os.Getenv("TESLA_CLIENT_SECRET"),
			Email:        os.Getenv("TESLA_USERNAME"),
			Password:     os.Getenv("TESLA_PASSWORD"),
	if err != nil {

	vehicles, err := client.Vehicles()
	if err != nil {

	vehicle := vehicles[0]
	status, err := vehicle.MobileEnabled()
	if err != nil {


	// Autopark
	// Use with care, as this will move your car
	// Use with care, as this will move your car

	// Stream vehicle events
	eventChan, errChan, err := vehicle.Stream()
	if err != nil {
	} else {
		for {
			select {
			case event := <-eventChan:
				eventJSON, _ := json.Marshal(event)
			case err = <-errChan:
				if err.Error() == "HTTP stream closed" {
					eventChan, errChan, err := vehicle.Stream()
					if err != nil {



Thank you to Tim Dorr who did the heavy lifting to document the Tesla API and also created the model-s-api Ruby Gem.

Current Issues

Right now Tesla appears to have broken the Autopark and Homelink commands of their API in a recent cloud API update. I have started a thread here and will update as information becomes available. And fix if/when the community discovers the fix. Keep an eye on these two issues for resolution:
