Hi all. Happy Holidays. I kinda want to do a poll to find out has anyone been experiencing the same "issue" as I am. I am not sure if this is an issue I need to bring up to the service center but lets say the night before I will set a charge of 90%. However, the next morning I wake up...it will charge sometimes to 95 or in this case 98%.

It doesn't happen all the time. Any thoughts?

2 years into model 3 ownership - yep happens to me occasionally. I think it’s due to the temperature changes from overnight to daytime and rebalancing

It shouldn't happen. Certainly not 90% to 97%. I would bring it up with the service center. Also, you should watch it sometime to see if it stops at 90%, and then resumes later, or something else is going on.

Hi Bktiger86,

I have seen some other reports of this on some of the recent software 2019.36.x.x
Are you charging on a HPWC?
If you are on 2019.40.2.1 and are still having the problem contact your Service Center.

Very interesting...yeah I'm not sure if it is weather related or not. I live in California and lately it has been pretty cold in my garage.
def not weather for me... had the car too long and been through all 2 seasons we have, lol... I'm still simply blown away that I woke up to my 1st ever overcharge after reading this thread about overcharging for the 1st time....
will be monitoring next few charges and will post any anomalies....

This happened to me for the first time in years of ownership (two cars since 10/2013) when I tried the new "depart at" option in the charging scheduler. Once I realized it was still charging even when the car was at or above the charge limit I had set, I immediately went back to my the start charge at 2am option and it hasn't happened again since.
