    Anyone know how I can activate the cabin overheat protection please?
    It's just greyed out every time I go to it in the settings.

    Hmm.
    Ah, from this thread it would seem this often happens when the car hasn’t been marked by Tesla as “delivered”, it’s still in transport mode which disables unoccupied battery draining features

    Cannot enable Cabin Overheat Protection

    In my S you can't have sentry mode on with o/h protection - weird.

    Hmm I have sentry mode and dash cam so not sure it would still be in delivery mode?
    Others have their model 3 sentry mode and cabin overheat protection on at the same time?

    @Fullerene why do you disagree? Have you got a model 3 where you are not able to do this either?

    If you deselect Tilt/Intrution or the car alarm you will be able to use COP.....It is either or.

    Best wishes,

    Try disabling tilt/intrusion detection, then cabin overheat protection should be selectable...

    Controls > Safety & Security > Tilt/Intrusion is a Model X/S only thing I think, the OP has a Model 3

    Figured bit out.... can't have sentry mode on and overheat protection on at the same time in the model 3 apparently!

    This smells like a bug, can’t think of any plausible reason for this restriction. Any thoughts?

    Yeah. The internal sensor for the alarm uses a change in air pressure. Eg when a window is broken or a door opens.

    a fan blowing air around, especially with variable speed, will confuse it

    the S and X are the same, but they say so in the manual. The model 3 manual doesn’t say it and I thought they’d got around it somehow.

    Don't think that there are actually any sensors in the model 3 for movement - just a tilt sensor?
