    I picked up my new AWD Long range battery Model 3 on Tuesday. I love it. On Thursday I took a trip. After 125 miles of driving I stopped for lunch. After lunch the AC would not come on. No fan or air of any kind. Called Tesla and they rebooted the system but that did not help. They told me to bring it in for service. I turned around. About 50 miles down the road I stopped at a supercharger. After charging the AC came back on. Stopped again about 75 miles later and the AC would not come back on. The AC would not come on the rest of the day. Charged it over night, and in the morning it worked again. Took it to the Telsa service center today an they said they studied the logs but cannot pinpoint a cause. They said engineers in California are looking in to it. They are keeping my car over the weekend. Has anyone else had this problem? Any success in getting it fixed? So disappointed that my car will spend its first weekend in the shop. Otherwise, love everything about it.

    I'll had this issue once and a soft reset fixed it. Hope you got a loaner. Service center is one of the best in the industry.

    Got a loaner, but it is not a Tesla. Left the car on Friday. It is the end of day Monday and still no fix. Hoping tomorrow will bring some answers.
