    Passenger HVAC deactivation - is it a bug, or a feature?

    I've noticed that passenger vents stay active regardless whether the front passenger is present: However, if foot vent is not engaged, either automatically or manually, the passenger's vent stays off: I'm trying to understand whether it's by design (or that's a limitation due to how the...

    Question Will I be notified on my phone if the AC fails while in Pet mode?

    If the AC for Pet Mode fails, does it notify my phone? Worried about my dog dying in the Texas heat if the AC goes out while we're out grocery shopping. As of now the only option I'm aware of is to check the temp using your phone every 10 minutes which is scary if I happen to forget to check...

    HVAC Issue: Windshield Vent Louver

    Front HVAC Compressor Inhibited Error?

    Received my Model 3 on 6/13 this month and it's been pretty good so far. VIN 256xx. Had a strange behavior pop up the last couple days. After 2-3 minutes of driving with a hot car after being parked more than 30 minutes, the normally cool air coming out of the vents suddenly gets more humid...

    A/C not working

    A/C not working when it's hot. When it is hot outside ( > 90 deg F inside) the A/C is not able to cool the car down after 15 minutes with the A/C on and the temp set to Lo. I have a service appointment pending. When the car is not hot (< 80 deg inside) the A/C is able to keep the car cool to...
