Cabin overheat protection...is it working?

To my understanding, cabin overheat protection is designed to help keep the cabin from... overheating... when the car is not being operated. However I have encountered multiple instances where it does not appear to be functioning as I would expect. I would appreciate any insight...

Many of the instances, the battery has been at least 40% charged, if not fully charged or even plugged in... the car has been operated within the last 6-12 hours, and cabin overheat protection is ON.

Yet the cabin routinely is >120*F and even >130*F.

Isn't the cabin overheat protection supposed to help with this? This morning, My car is plugged in and battery is full... yet it was 134*F...

Insight is appreciated.

When you get it working properly. Be careful because it will cycle on off every few minutes unnecessarily and use battery power. Might be better to just turn a con from phone prior to having to drive car.

I looked at TeslaFi data from the last time I parked outside. It would reach 105F and then cool for a while, then repeat. There have been a few threads where it doesn't seem to activate.

Mine seems not to be working in the last few days. Noticed the car at 114F when I got a notice my blackvue 4K was shutting down due to high heat.

The car has been held to 104F up until recently. Guessing something has been broken in the software..,

on top of the child/pet safety, I felt I was getting some protection for the electronics, flash memory, screen, etc by keeping the car to 104F max.

Noticed mine at 115 F today. Checked that cabin overheat protection is still toggled on, and it was. Energy savings was off.

Had my update yesterday and seemed to work. This morning I went to leave, opened the app and saw it was 141 inside the car. Settings are still activated not sure why it didn’t turn on.
