    Can the Model S have the air conditioner or car running continuously, with windows up & doors locked, without worrying about it being stolen?
    In the Nissan Leaf, this can be done, as you need the transponder to engage Drive.

    You can do this from the app, I don't know how long it will stay on though.

    You put your gear to Neutral and use the 17" electronic button to keep your car from moving.

    You can then get out of your car and lock it in usual fashion.

    Yeah, can do in the Nissan Leaf too, but it switches off the air conditioner after 15/20 minutes.
    I want the air conditioner to run for more than an hour

    You can get a 3rd party app that will enable "camping mode".

    Not when you do as I instructed.

    I washed and waxed my car and had my stereo blasted and locked for 3 hours continuously without the fob near by.

    We weren't camping, we were getting rid of an old mattress, but I got an extra long twin mattress in the back of my Model S and got the hatch closed too. I had to run the front seats up far enough, I couldn't get in, my SO had to drive it to Goodwill. Only to find out they don't take mattresses anymore.
