    Is there some secret handshake to turn on the overheat protection?

    Mine is on in the software, but right now the car is at 46C while plugged in and I thought it kicked in at 40C.

    Why not post this to the Model 3 forum? It's likely not Canada-specific.

    My understanding from the release notes is: "When active, your vehicle prevents the interior temperature from exceeding 105F/40C for up to 12 hours after you exit your vehicle.”

    So, I think this means that if you don't enter/exit your vehicle after the 12 hrs is up, the vehicle no longer continues to keep the interior cooled.

    Agreed, but I exited my vehicle only about 5 hours ago so shouldn't it still be active?

    Yes it should. I am at a loss as to why not. I have monitored mine for this behaviour over many hot days and it appears to follow the 12hr window.

    Do you have the 'No A/C' option set? If so, it won't be able to maintain 40 C

    All else fails, try an MCU reboot.
