    I’ve been noticing every day when I get in my car, the temperature (set to HI in the winter) is still maintained, but the directional setting for air flow is changed to the lower (towards the feet) direction instead of the towards the face setting that I prefer. Also, the toggle for A/C is on while I have to consistently turn it off every day. Each time I get back in to the car throughout the day, it resets and I have to change the air flow direction and turn off the AC manually. The repetitive nature without a solution is getting to be more than an annoyance.

    Anyone have experience dealing with this issue?

    Is it also going back to "auto" mode?

    Nope, just changing from directional face to feet and toggling AC on from off

    That sounds like going back into auto mode.

    it's definitely not auto-mode, if I change the setting in the car it saves heated seat preferences for when I want to pre-heat, but no matter what the AC toggles back on and the air direction changes back to feet every time I pre-heat.

    I am having exactly the same problem. It is incredibly annoying. It does exactly what you described: turns on the AC compressor, and switches the air flow to feet (usually).

    For a while I thought it was a result of turning on the heater from the app. However it seems to do it whether I turn on heat from the app or wait until I get in the car.

    I thought perhaps I could avoid the problem by turning the heat *off* from the app (in other words, turn on heat from the app, let it heat up, then turn it off from the app, then get in the car). The first time I tried it, it worked. But it hasn't worked since then. I believe the first time was a fluke.

    I have loved many, many things about my Teslas. This, however, has been a constant annoyance in the wintertime. If anyone has a workaround it would be greatly appreciated!
