    2023 Model S AC tripping out

    I have a 2023 Model S. I’ve found that the AC and fans trip off every 30-45 seconds when the front and rear is blowing hard. On for 30-45 and off for 30-45. Repeat. If I turn the rear off, the problem goes away. Anyone else seen this?

    6,000 dollar AC failure and fix on Model S

    Just took my 2013 Model S P85 (50k miles) in due to some AC issues. The AC was making weird sounds and wasn’t working all that great. The vehicle is obviously out of warranty. Initially the estimate came back with a receiver and dryer cap replacement, desiccant bag replacement, high pressure...

    2015 Model S AC doesn’t automatically turn on

    I have a 2015 Model S and ever since picking up the car from service, I have to manually turn on climate control every time I get in the car. If I don’t turn it on manually, it stays off and quickly gets hot if I don’t turn it on after a few minutes of driving. Any idea why this is happening...

    The temperature in town yesterday was a whopping 103 degrees. I had to go to a store and was there about an hour. When getting back to the car, the temperature on the dash said 114. I turned on the Aircon and was driving home. Set the TEMP inside to LOW. All the way home it was blowing cool...

    New Tesla owner. Climate control question.

    Hey everyone. This is my first post. My wife is sensitive to A/C and I am not. I like it cranking and it bothers her a bit. Seeing how there are no "vents" to close like other cars is there away to have the fan lower on her side?

    Hi all, just ran into a problem I was hoping you all could help with! My wife was supercharging our 2014 model S and after a couple minutes the ac started blowing super hot air. 5 minutes after that the car displayed an error message saying it couldn’t supercharge. Moved to a different...

    2019 M3 Rear Vent blows warm air when low-level cooling is required

    My 2019 Model 3 SR+ seems to have an issue with blowing warm air to the rear vent when it should be cold. This issue happens when mild cooling is required, for example, outside 76°F and inside temp set to 72°F. The front vents will blow cold, but the rear will blow warm. If air recycle is on...

    Why is there no button to turn off the heat like there is to turn off the AC?

    Why is there no button to turn off the heat like there is to turn off the AC? Use case: in the summer, I might set the AC to the high end of the temperature range that I feel comfortable at. But, in the evening, that may cause it to turn on the heat, even though I would rather have it not use...

    Vibration when blasting the AC

    I have been driving my 2019 Model 3 for over 4 years now. Recently I have started experiencing unusually loud vibration when turning on the AC in hot weather. Let's say it's 90 degrees when I get in the car. I turn on the AC at 68 degrees. AC starts blasting and I can feel the car vibrating...

    I took my car in for upper control arms to be replaced and for an issue with the AC blowing hot. I get it back and AC is still blowing hot? They were nice enough to take it back in almost right away. They already replaced the compressor, next they replaced the refrigerant pump. I get the car...

    Model 3 cabin overheat protection

    A doubt that I still haven’t seen answered in any forum or site, and that in these times of heat popped up into my mind. What is the limitation that exists in the Model 3 that maes it so that you cannot have cabin overheat protection at the same time as you have the alarm on, as happens in the...

    Climate Control Screen Bugs Me!

    When I go into the Climate Control Screen and turn climate control OFF the window closes as well. This bugs me because all I wanted to do was turn off CControl. When I'm done seeing the CControl settings I'll close the screen. As far as I can see this is the only screen that acts like this. All...

    Dessicant bag maintenance

    My local service provider wants $732 to change the dessicant bag. Seems way high when most of the time a machine is doing the work like removing coolant, evacuating and recharging. What is your experience with this?

    Can I turn off driver's side AC but keep passenger side on?

    My contact lenses get extremely dry when cold AC is blowing towards my eyes. I typically angle the driver's side vents away from my face, but I'm still catching enough air to dry my eyes out rapidly. Is there a way to turn off the driver side AC vents while leaving the passenger side on...

    Model 3 - A/C not blowing any air, "Climate keeper unavailable due to system fault"

    I've seen this posted for Model Y and S, but not the Model 3. It's now 97 degrees in my area. I went to my 2020 Model 3 one morning after it was charging overnight in my garage and the AC won't blow any air at all. Not just cold air, any air. I did a soft reset 3 times. It makes a weird...

    2019 MX 6 seater - Rear AC not nearly as cold as front when set to auto?

    I'm wondering if anyone else is having the same experience, just want to confirm if it's normal. When I have the front and rear set to Auto and set the temp to 68deg for example, the rear air comes out much warmer. I can remedy this by setting the rear temp manually to 60, and only then will...

    Climate Control and Auto

    I am a new Tesla owner. I believe our climate control was set to Auto when we picked up the new MY. Does the car try to maintain the set temperature when it is set to Auto but nobody is in it? For example, when it is in the garage at night, will it maintain the temperature when set to Auto? My...

    Climate control sluggish on auto

    Seems to me that when I get into a blazing hot car that's been sitting out in the sun, the climate control takes it's sweet time bringing the coolness. Even with the temp on 69 and the interior in the 90's, the fan stays on medium for what seems to be a long time if you're burning up. When it...

    2022 Model 3P rear ac vent not working?

    My rear ac vent does not flow when I turn the ac on unless I put the ac in Doggie mode first. It will then stay flowing when I turn the dog mode off. Is this really the only way to get the rear vent to flow? I've tries the owners manual without help and every control I see on the screen.
