    Climate (lack of) control

    We've had our MY for just over 2 months and have gone on several road trips already. Love the vehicle, but haven't been able to figure out the climate control. It seems like the rear passenger was rarely comfortable, often super cold. Many times, the vents were not blowing air, regardless if...

    Location of ventilation holes for camp mode?

    I'm gonna follow my bliss* through continental Europe. I don't know whether this will actually happen but I like the *idea* of being able to sleep in my car. I know that I'm meant to find places that will allow me to sleep but let's just say - hypothetically - for the sake of argument - by the...

    Air flow to my face

    How do I get air to blow in my face. Quite a warm day in the UK today and wanted the cool air blowing on my face but after playing for the nearly 2 hour drive, I couldn’t get it any higher thank my waist / knees. Not normally and issue but just felt warm today and would have liked the air. Think...

    Is there a way just to let some natural air in without the windows?

    Hi, I am in a black tesla, and it is really cold outside, but the interior still gets really hot because it is black. Is there a way to just let the outside air come in through the filter and into the cabin, that is, just to get some fresh air in through the outside without turning on the ac...

    HVAC Control - for those over 50

    30 years ago, most houses had a thermostat with two settings: How LOW the room temperature will go before the HEATER kicks on. How HIGH the room temperature will go before the A/C kicks on. Yes, you set a temperature range. There were two slider adjustments to limit "how warm" and "how cool"...

    Airconditioning valve noise

    With my Model S 2013 model, I have a noice (thud) every 20 sec or so and it sounds like someone is closing a car door near by. After some investigation it appeared originating from the ventilation system and stops when air conditioning is switched off. Anyone any ideas if this is a problem with...

    Don't want heater on, want vent

    Afternoon is still warm enough to require AC. Next morning I keep forgetting and after about 10 minutes of driving I realize heater is on. It is around 62 degrees out which is lower than the 72 degree setting in the car. In that scenario I don't want heater! I want vent. Keep the car cool until...

    turn off heater?

    so is there any way to turn of the heater? i can’t find one. if the temperature selected is just a little bit warmer than the cabin, i see the red tinted air graphic, which i assume means the heater is powered up. The ac can be switched off in manual mode, but i can find no such option to...

    Fan Only: Peculiarities of the Model 3

    I'd like to spell out a couple different uses of fan only and implementation details. I'll need help on most of it and will try to update this OP with a moderator's help when it is well flushed out. 1. The easy one is fan only while driving. This just requires that Auto and AC be greyed out in...

    My Rear Jumpseat Cooling Solution

    Now that summer is nearing, I thought I'd share with you what I used all last summer for cooling my rear jump seats. First things first, make sure that the a/c setting is either on fresh air or biohazard mode NOT re-circulation. Even though you can turn up the fan to 11 on re-circulation, the...

    Model S Rear Facing Seat Cooling

    So we are quickly approaching year 3 of Model S ownership and it's always been a goal to try and make the rear facing seats as comfortable/useful as possible even in the hot summers. One would think that Tesla does not care for the well-being of it's 3rd row passengers when you look at how...

    Ventilation Discrepancy Rear Climate Control

    Wondering if anybody else has this problem. Model X 90D. The air flow on the 2nd row, driver's side vent is markedly decreased compared to the 2nd row, passenger's side vent. When I first noticed the problem, there was actually no air flow in the 2nd row driver's side vent. I took it into...

    Why fresh air setting for jumpseats?

    Tesla encourages the use of the fresh air setting for better air circulation when using the rear jumpseats. Can anyone explain why that setting has better circulation to the trunk? When I put that setting on, the speed of air exiting the rear vents noticibly decreases.

    Anyone use the Noggle?

    I know it looks silly but does anyone have experience with the Noggle in the Model S? I have 3rd row jumpseats and wanted to hear from anyone that's used one before either with that or with rear-facing car seats. Specially, what length is appropriate and how well does it fit on the rear vents?

    Ventilation for Rear Facing Seats

    I had an idea that might need quite a bit of fleshing out. I understand there would be inherent risks involved, but I'd like to discuss the merits of 'if it could work' rather than 'if it should be done'. I've used the rear window defroster exactly 0 times so far. My thought was to discover if...

    Heater on/off Button?

    We need a heater on/off button, similar to the AC on/off. I picked-up my car in May so I haven't spent a winter in it yet. The other day, it was 70-degrees (F) but humid in the early evening. I turned the AC on to take the humidity edge off, but with the temp set at 70-degrees, I felt a little...

    Interested in 3rd row seat ventilation?

    I'm currently fabricating a ventilation system which pulls the air from the 2nd row to the rear facing seats. My kids get hot/cold back there and I needed a solution. Here are my goals with this system: 1. Make it look as much like an OEM unit as possible 2. Quiet and yet providing enough...
