Any of you who with recent deliveries (March 2021) have issues with the heater not working?

Hi duran505, my SR7's heater delivered on 3/11 works fine so far. I tested it last night. Sorry, I couldn't test it for 2 hours. It's 80 F degree here. My wife would think I am crazy or lock me in the car during the heater torture test. :) You can ask your SA to test your heater as part of the essential safety feature before delivery. Or ask to have access to your car via the Tesla app so you can test climate remotely yourself while the car is plugged in charging, etc. Best wishes.

Yep. I've had my '21 MYP for 4 weeks and 2 days now. The first two weeks went perfect. Then on the third week, first thing Monday morning, I was unable to preheat the car with the app - 'Failed to turn on climate' on the screen. Car had no heat in 30 degree weather. In the afternoon when it was warm, I also had no A/C. This lasted all week long. Side Note - Dog Mode was unavailable as well, even though I don't have a dog.:)

Now, this past Monday, I turned on the climate (through the app) and just like that, working again. Car was nice and toasty when I opened the door. A/C is working again too!

My Service Appt. is for 3/30, but I'll probably postpone if it continues to work well.

Hope your climate control continues to function well! Thank you for responding
 
Hi everyone, 2021 Model 3 DM/LR picked up Feb / 2021

My heat stopped working last week. Brought in for service Monday morning 4/19/21 and they replaced the following sensors/pressure switches:
2 of these: PT SENSOR, HIGH PRESSURE(1581610-00-B)
1 of these: PT SENSOR, LOW PRESSURE(1581608-00-B)

They told me only one was bad but they replace all 3 because there was a bad batch from the factory for 2021 . Well that fixed it . 3 days later . Heat is dead again . Ugh !!!

I'll update with more info after my NEXT appointment
