    Sorry still new to our Model X but did do a forum search.

    I set our car schedule to charge at midnight last night. Pretty sure it hit all the right buttons and the watch over the charger icon shows. I think the phone app as well showed the scheduled charge. Woke this morning to find the car didn't charge. Had to manually turn on charge. Did I miss a step somewhere?

    Also, if we forget to set the charge scheduler, is there a way to do that from the official Tesla phone app (android). I see only turn on or off charging via phone.

    thanks,

    Its easy to confuse AM/PM when setting at midnight. Set at 12:05 am and it will work just fine. I have done the same thing. Setting the time to charge at a particular location must be done from the car, not the app.

    As to your second question, the answer is no, you cannot schedule a charge from the phone app. You can manually start or stop the charging from the app, and you can change the charging limit.
    As to the first question, it is hard to say whether or not you might have missed the step. But the settings are retained from day to day. So if you go to your car and look at the charging screen, it should show that scheduled charging is turned on, and both the charging start time and the charge limit should be set to what you want. I suggest you have a second look, and maybe see if it starts to charge tonight when you want it to. (Maybe set the charge start time to an earlier hour, before you go to bed, so you can see on the app whether or not charging has started.) If your car has successfully charged before at your house, my guess is that you simply missed something in the setup.

    thanks Lloyd/ Dave, good point on the AM/ PM setting, I might have overlooked that... doh! We have charged a loaner MX we've been using for a few weeks prior with our wall charger without problems (but didn't try the scheduler) so I'm sure it's not the charger.
