  11. To change the direction of airflow from the front vents, touch. Examine Changing the Front Vents.
  12. By preconditioning the Battery and cabin climate and charging during off-peak hours, you can specify a repeating daily time when you want Model Y/Model 3 to be ready to drive when it is in the park—touch Schedule to do this (see Scheduled Charging and Scheduled Departure).
  13. When the temperature control system is active and outside air enters the cabin, the medical-grade HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filter installed in your Model Y/Model 3 assures the highest possible air quality within the cabin (recirculate is off). The HEPA filter removes particles, including pollutants, allergies, germs, pollen, mold spores, and viruses. The HEPA filter includes activated carbon in the secondary filtering systems to eliminate various odors and gases. Positive cabin pressure reduces the quantity of outside air entering the vehicle while the Bioweapon Defense Mode is activated.


14. Activated carbon is ineffective in effectively removing some gases, such as carbon monoxide.

15. The airflow inside the cabin is managed by touching. Air can be recirculated inside the Model Y/Model 3’s cabin or taken in from the outside.

Keep the heat on, the dog, and camp.

Even after you’ve departed Model Y/Model 3 or decided to stay inside the car, the temperature control system can be kept running in the park by selecting the Keep Climate On, Dog, and Camp options. When it’s crucial to manage the cabin’s temperature in hot or cold weather, these settings can be helpful. For instance, you would wish to set Keep Climate On when keeping groceries in a Model Y/Model 3 on hot days to prevent rotting.

A dog is made to keep your pet’s cabin at a comfortable temperature while you actively and repeatedly check this temperature using the mobile app (which requires both your phone and the vehicle to have cellular connectivity). The touchscreen in the dog shows the current cabin temperature to let onlookers know that your pet is secure. This option is not meant to be used by people. Therefore you should only use it briefly while staying nearby in case you need to get back in the car when the temperature can no longer be maintained.

In addition to preserving the cabin’s temperature, the camp offers USB connections and low voltage outlets for powering modern devices. You can use the touchscreen to play music, surf the web, play games in the arcade, or watch movies in the Tesla Theater. A linked phone can also control the media and climate settings. When camping or vacationing with a youngster, camp is the best option for staying inside your car. Sentry Mode and the car’s alarm system are deactivated when it’s on.

Keep Climate On, Dog, or Camp must be activated:

  1. Make sure the battery has at least a 20% charge.
  2. Activate Park. Only when Model Y/Model 3 is in the park are the settings Keep Climate On, Dog, and Camp accessible.
  3. Make appropriate climatic adjustments.
  4. Touch the climate control screen on the Keep Climate On, Dog, or Camp.


By swiping up from the grey bar on the Climate screen of the smartphone app, you can also control Dog and Camp from there.

The temperature control system tries to retain your climatic settings until you move out of the park or manually turn it off. Keep Climate On, Dog, and Camp should not be used when the battery is low. The Tesla mobile app continuously sends messages reminding you to check on everything you have left in Model Y/Model 3 if the battery’s charge level falls below 20%.


Software upgrades cannot be made when Keep Climate On, Dog, or Camp are in use.


If one is present, the intrusion sensor (if provided) turns off automatically when Keep Climate On, Dog, or Camp are in use. The intrusion sensor can still be active if you override this behavior. After enabling Keep Climate On, Dog, or Camp, touch Controls > Safety > Tilt/Intrusion to accomplish this. However, keep in mind that keeping the intrusion sensor turned on when Keep Climate On, Dog, or Camp is turned on may cause an alarm due to air movement inside the cabin.


Never leave a child alone in a moving car.


Check your local laws to prohibit leaving pets in your car unattended.


Your dog or other pet’s security is your responsibility. Never leave them in the Model Y/Model 3 unattended for a long time. Keep a close eye on both their welfare and the car’s temperature. Make sure you have enough time and cellular reception on your phone to, if required, return to the vehicle.


Avoid utilizing Keep Climate On, Dog, and Camp if your climate control system unexpectedly needs repair or is not performing as intended. Never trust your car to keep something priceless safe.


You may remotely operate and monitor the temperature control system using the smartphone app. However, Keep Climate On, Dog, and Camp stop working if you use the mobile app to turn off the climate control system.

Making Front Vent Adjustments

The dashboard of the Model Y/Model 3 contains an unusual horizontal face-level vent that runs the whole width of the car. When heating or cooling the front cabin area, you can use the touchscreen to direct the airflow from this vent.

  1. Vent and controls for the driver
  2. Controls and passenger vent

You can change the airflow direction from each vent when the face-level vent is on. Simply tap the airwaves emanating from the matching vent on the touchscreen to change the air flow’s path. When centered, the air flows in a single stream; when directed outward or inward from the center of the vent, the air separates into two mirrored streams.

The passenger vent and controls automatically turn off when Model Y/Model 3 determines that no one is occupying the passenger seat. Enable passenger airflow by adjusting the climate controls.


The airflow in each direction is weaker when a vent is split into two independent air flows than when all the air flows in one direction.


Through the grill in front of the windscreen, outside air is pulled inside the Model Y/Model 3. Keep debris, such as snow and leaves, away from the grill.

Making Rear Vent Adjustments

When a setting is activated using the touchscreen, air flows from vents at the rear of the center console on the Model Y/Model 3. The vents in the back of the center console can be moved up, down, or side to side as needed to control the airflow in the back cabin region.

Cabin air filter(s)

The Model Y/Model 3 includes one or more air filters to stop dust, pollen, and other particles from entering through the vents.


Periodic replacement is required for the cabin air filter(s). Check out Service Intervals.

Prevention of Cabin Overheating

When the outside temperature is very high, the climate control system can lower the cabin’s temperature for up to twelve hours after you leave Model Y/Model 3. Select Cabin Overheat Protection under Controls > Safety.

  • Turn the cabin overheat protection off.
  • No air conditioning: Only the fan runs when the interior temperature rises beyond 105°F (40°C). Although it uses less energy, this option could result in a cabin temperature of more than 105° F (40° C).
  • On: When the inside temperature rises above 105°F (40°C), the air conditioning turns on.


Until 12 hours have passed since you left Model Y/Model 3, or until the Battery energy falls below 20%, whichever comes first, Cabin Overheat Protection is in effect.


Never leave children or animals alone in a car. Even with Cabin Overheat Protection turned on, the car’s interior can get dangerously heated due to automated shut-off or severe weather outside.

Operating Guidelines for Climate Control

  • The face-level vents can be pointed at the windows to assist in defrosting or defogging them.
  • The climate control system automatically shuts off after four hours or if the battery level falls to 20% when you use the mobile app to switch it on. You must turn it back on if you want to cool or heat the cabin for longer.
  • In particularly chilly or frosty weather, your charge port latch may freeze. Enable Defrost Car in the mobile app if you have trouble removing or inserting the charging cable or if your car won’t Supercharge because the latch is stuck open. This aids in defrosting the charge port latch’s ice coating so that the charging cable may be inserted or removed. For more details, see Cold Weather Best Practices.
  • Reduce the fan speed manually if the climate control system is too loud.
  • The air conditioning compressor cools the battery in addition to the interior. As a result, even if you shut off the air conditioning, the compressor may still start up during hot weather. This is typical given that the system’s top objective is to keep the Battery cool so it can operate at its best and maintain longevity.
  • You might hear the Model Y/Model 3 whining or water running even when it is not in use. These noises are typical and happen when the internal cooling systems activate to support various vehicle functions, such as preserving the low voltage battery and regulating the high voltage battery’s temperature.
  • Close all windows and check that the external grille in front of the windshield is free of ice, snow, leaves, and other debris to ensure that the climate control system functions effectively.
  • It is typical for the windshield to somewhat fog when you first switch on the air conditioning in extremely humid circumstances.
  • When the Model Y/Model 3 is parked, it’s typical for a little water pool to develop underneath. The excess water created during the dehumidifying process is dumped below.
  • The air conditioning compressor and exterior fan may run and generate noise even when it’s chilly outside. Your car is heating up or supercharging because the Model Y/Model 3 is built to maximize efficiency automatically.
  • The fan may activate to vent the cabin while the car is parked in hot weather to lower the temperature. This happens only when the battery’s charge level is greater than 20%.
