Ventilation fan is on at odd Times

Stranded? I think that is a bit extreme. If you asked any car owner to walk into the garage hours and hours after driving for 10 minutes I doubt they would expect any car to be doing anything. Losing 5 miles when you drive 20 in a day does not compute in my book, but I am not stranded. Our 3 is our around town car and local car. Very little daily usage

Do you have Sentry turned on at home? If the car isn't sleeping, it will loose range just sitting regardless of any fans running.

My ventilation fan was actually defective in my 2018 Model 3. I noticed the front vents were stuck closed while it was running and it would run at odd times of the night as well. I was able to get resolved through warranty service visit and they replaced the vent assembly.
