    Something wrong with Tesla (2017 S75D) this morning. Woke up to find it burning hot 121F in garage when outside temp is 38F.

    Anyone has noticed this issue?

    That Bjorn post was hilarious... I had this once where the climate didn't shut off when I exited the car in my garage. Since, I've taken to checking the car status at night to be sure it's 'resting comfortably'. My GF tells me Samantha (the car) is like a fussy baby, we need to check on her temperature, her feeding, etc. :D

    Not happened since, but every new firmware is new worry for what did she learn at school! :confused:

    I have precondition disabled. I manually turn on the climate control in morning as needed.

    Same thing happened to me. 2013 S parked in the garage. A weird update last summer totally messed up the centre console screen and was pretty much unusable for a couple months. Then an update fixed that but made my home charging intermittent. Next update fixed home charging but added preconditioning, which I tried a few times in the super cold over the Xmas holidays when the car was outside. But then a couple months ago whilst parked inside our garage in town it heated of it's own accord to about the same temperature. The garage was a sauna. Tesla reported I set something to do that but I don't have any recollection of that. Suffice it to say I'm nervous about charging it indoors now even though I check it all the time!

    Precondition is not the same as turning on the climate controls, is it? I thought precondition was to warm the battery only. Or does it do both?

    The word Preconditioning can be used to mean either manual or automatic. I’m this case we were talking about the setting in the car that is the “smart” preconditioning that does it automatically.

    A fairly recent update introduced this bug. I talked to the service center about this and the recommendation was to disable smart pre-conditioning until told otherwise.
