Do you have notifications for charging interruption enabled?

I was getting duplicate notices, but they had same time stamp. I deleted and reinstalled the app.

This is happening to me tonight. Did you ever get this resolved? Why is it happening? I think I am going to unplug right now to be safe.

I saw the same thing last night. I had it set to charge to 80% starting at midnight, which it did, but then it kept cycling back on about every few minutes, all night long! In all cases it turned back off within a minute. It's not a notification bug with the app, Teslafi.com shows 35 (!) charges overnight. There's no reason for it to turn back on since it was already at 80%.

This happened a year or two ago with the S and X, and if I recall correctly the issue was with Tesla’s servers rather than what was happening in the car.

I sat in the car while it was happening and it was starting and stopping the charge every minute. So if it’s just a server issue it was actually making the car charge on and off, not just the notifications

@opencar I've also experienced these notifications after my charge was complete at 80% overnight today. I only did receive about 4 notifications in the morning about 10-15 mins after my charge was complete and I had opened the app to check.

I'm running iOS 12 beta 4 on iPhone X and on the latest Tesla app update (Versions 3.4.3) Haven't had this issue before the new update.

This is a good data point. I had this happen 2-3 times so far and chalked it off as a server issue, the server which is pushing notifications to the app. Didn't know the car was entering the charge cycle each time we get a notification.

maybe after being fully charged, the car climate control would kick in for a few minutes and drain the battery. then the car would start charging again to top it off, then the process repeats itself.

Can you try this again at 78 or 79%? I read somewhere that when they did that, it stopped... Now if it was permanent... who knows. Good to know Tesla is aware though of the problem.

I came to this thread because I got the notification barrage last night. I notice several other posts mention they had the charge value set to 80%. I did as well, and I don't usually. The only time this happened to me (last night) I was charging to 80% overnight.

Had my AWD since Saturday. Each night had a scheduled charge for 90%. Last night, I knew I wasn’t going to drive far today so I set it for around 60% I believe. This morning, I received the barrage, when up to this point I received only one start and one stop. Fired up the app and observed the charging started and then stopped. Clicked on/off with no change to remaining range. Recorded video showing one of the “cycles”. Version 28.3
