24hrs Post Front Windshield Tint - A/C Fan Speed Acting Weird/Abnormal

Car Specs:
- LR AWD Stealth
- Build: 09/20
- HW3/ AP3.0

Before: PhotoSync Front Windshield and Side/Back Window Tint
- Software: V9
- 90º Outside w/ 72º set inside A/C FAN speed would blast when I first entered the car but level out to FAN speed (2 or 3) while driving or sitting inside with no shade.

After: PhotoSync Front Windshield and Side/Back Window Tint
- Software V10.11
- 90º Outside w72º set inside A/C FAN speed now blasts when I first enter the car and levels out to FAN speed (5 or 6) never getting back to (2 or 3) anymore. This is while driving or sitting inside with no shade.

Variables: Software (unable to change the software to get control)

Troubleshooting Steps:
- Hard Reset - Press Brake & Two roller buttons until Tesla Logo appears
- Soft Reset - Press both roller buttons until Tesla Logo appears
- Power Off - Powered off car inside Safety settings

Questions/Comments:
- I would assume the Window tint should have decreased the heat inside the car keeping the FAN speeds consistent or lower as stated in "Before"
- What could have been damaged during this Window tint that could be causing this issue?
- I read that there is a front temperature sensor somewhere close to Windshield, could this have been damaged from the liquid used on Front Windshield tint.

It is possible, thats why some tint shops wont do Tesla's windshield. If water got into those sensors, everything is possible. Hopefully if water got there, it dries off soon and all will be back to normal. good luck
