Tesla is updating its recently released “Dog Mode” feature after an owner pointed out a bug in the software.
“Dog Mode” uses the vehicle’s sensors to keep the cabin temperature comfortable for pets that may be left in the car. The mode also shows a message on the center display telling passers-by the interior temperature and that the owner will return soon.
However, the owner discovered that the feature doesn’t activate if the fan speed has been manually changed, rather than set to auto.
Chief Executive Elon Musk said replied to a tweet about the problem, saying the company is working on a fix.
Dog Mode was developed after a suggestion to Musk from a canine-loving Tesla owner on Twitter.
Given that many areas of the U.S. are experiencing extreme summer temperatures, it’s great to hear Tesla is addressing the issue.
