What temperature does overheat protection kick in? Any way to check its working?

Side note. If you have kids or pets I think it's a good idea to leave it on. I know everyone thinks it won't happen to them but so did the people it happened to. That 1 in a million chance you are tired and make a mistake that fan running in your Tesla could give you a few hours to realize it and save your kids life.

It's a good idea. I bet whoever thought of it at Tesla prob saved at least one kid or pet by now.

On a side note…. Ive been getting the ‘wake up clicks’ a lot today, could this be the cabin overheat protection kicking in?
I normally only hear the wake up clicks when I open the app up.

It depends when it's happening really.

Assuming you've got COP enabled, and have driven the car within 12 hours (or opened a door or done something else to wake it up), and it's in direct sunlight, then in theory yes it could be waking itself to cool down. You'd ordinarily start to hear a constant fan noise once it starts doing this though.

Thanks, I do have it enabled but the temps up to 47 now and the fans haven’t come on, the cabin protection doesn’t seem to be working. (Did have a drive this morning)
It must be something else waking the car up. Had to do a reset this morning as the screen was messing around.
Could be the last update causing a few issues.

Pretty much wakes up as soon as it hits 40C, from what I can see...

Worth noting that COP doesn't work the same way as putting climate on to reach your desired target temperature. It appears to just try and get the temperature slightly under 40C before falling asleep again (assuming it doesn't get back to 40C before it does), rinse and repeat.
