    I keep a car cover on my Model 3 and have noticed the AC is running frequently even though I don't have my cell phone nearby to trigger it to start like I'm entering. It appears to happen most frequently when temperature outside is above 85. Is it possible the car cover is blocking some cooling intake or causing AC to run? Anyone else experience this?

    This is the model s forum. You should move your question over to the model 3 section

    And then turn off cabin overheat protection.
