The letters are fading on my keyboard. Is there something wrong with them?

The lettering on the Model S is laser-etched which means it will not fade or rub off. What appears to be fading is actually just oils, dirt, lotion, etc. from our fingers that transfers to the key caps. The key caps can be cleaned with a little rubbing alcohol (91% works well) and a q-tip. You will just want to be careful to not drip any into the keyboard, or you can remove the key cap (although the larger keys do not remove easily). Cleaning with alcohol will remove the dirt and restore the lettering on the keys.
