    I am trying to do some quick tests to determine my vampire drain. One of things I noticed is that when I try to “turn off” the car, it just comes back on 3 secs later. No way to completely turn off the car. Anybody else have that experience?

    I'm going to assume you did not get out of the car yet since you said 3 secs later. Have you tried getting out of the car, go put your keep far away and then walk back to the car to look inside ?

    I have noticed this. Using the power off option only seems to reboot the car.

    On my S when I tell it to power off, it stays off until I press the brake pedal.

    I have the same issue with this `Power Off` button on Model 3, It's Just turn off the display for 5-10 seconds then back to light.
    On my Model S, it will goes to sleep/Shutdown unless you press the brake.

    Yeah, on the S it basically tells the car to kill all the rails. The car should enter sleep within a few minutes.
