    I've only had my Model 3 for a month, so bear with me here.

    Situation:
    My wife is in the backseat with newborn and I need to go inside a store. How do I keep the music on when I leave the car? I know "Dog Mode" for AC, but I can't figure out how to keep the music on too.

    For other M3 owners, how do you keep the AC and music on when going to far from the car?

    Can you turn the car on from your app? I think there is a start button under controls. Maybe that would work?

    Ok. Thanks! I didn't pay attention to that. I'll definitely try this soon.

    If the car is running from your phone, maybe it's as simple as leaving that with her and take her phone with you (in case of emergency)?

    @strykeroz - I've tried leaving my phone in the car. It still shuts off when I leave the car. It must sense when the driver leaves.

    Have you tried "Keep Climate On"?

    The trick is to place the car in Neutral Gear to keep it alive and electronic brake to keep it from rolling.

    It only dies when the main battery is depleted in a week or so. Hopefully, you'll come back by then.

    See page 55.

    My wife’s phone is registered as a key with my Model 3. The car doesn’t shut off if I run into a store for a little bit while she waits in the car. AC and music keep going.

    Not sure from the backseat. When there is a passenger in the front seat, simply touching the screen does the trick.

    I am amazed why Tesla does not change this after so many years. The car nags me when my wife does not put her seatbelt on - yet it ignores the fact there is a passenger inside when the driver leaves the car.

    Nope. Doesn't work. It allows remote access for driving, but doesn't turn on the screen or AC.
