    Several times, when I plug my S in to charge. The next morning, when I go to the garage, the car is running and has been all night. Anyone else have this issue. Why is it happening and can I do something to keep this from happening?

    What do you mean by "running". Do you mean you hear fan noise? If so, that's normal.

    I've had this happen recently also, so I assume you mean the climate is running all night. I have the same question - why is my climate kicking on by itself? I've noticed in over the past couple of weeks, and I think it coincides with downloading 2018.14.2. I say "I think" because I never noticed it before, but hard to say if it never happened. I have a 2016 (pre-facelift) 90D, for reference. It only seems to happen at home in the garage - I use Summon about 80% of the time pulling into the garage also. I feel like the times I've noticed this happen is when climate is off when I park outside the garage, and then for some reason as part of the Summon process, the climate kicks on.

    I'm more aware of this now, so I will continue to monitor how this issue repeats.
