Third party apps can provide a dashboard that includes battery temperature. You can turn on standard preconditioning, this may warm the battery.Sounds good. Is that for diagnostic purposes or do they have extra functionality to force more battery heating?
Since the 2022 Holiday Update my 2020 LRMY behaves differently. This A.M. it was 38F inside my garage. I preconditioned for ~5 minutes and then drove 4 miles. The blue snowflake icon was being displayed. Battery warming may have taken place while driving but there was no grid heating icon on the screen or other message. I parked and charged for 1 hour using public L2 at a 6kW charging rate. After charging, while I was walking to the Model Y I turned on the Climate Control for preconditioning and the heating grid icon appeared. A minute or so later I unplugged the charging connector and checked the app. T he battery heating icon was no longer being displayed in the Tesla app.
I wonder if we turn off the Blended Friction Braking will this initiate or extend a battery heating session the next time we drive.
