Activating Dog Mode with Low Battery – Pro Tip

If you frequently use Dog Mode to keep your pets comfortable and safe, you may encounter an issue where Dog Mode does not work if the state of charge is below 20%. However, there is a workaround for this issue that can help to ensure your pet remains comfortable and safe.

To activate Dog Mode when the state of charge is below 20%, you can put the Tesla in neutral in the safety menu and manually apply the parking brake. This will allow Dog Mode to activate, even if the state of charge is below 20%, ensuring that your pet remains comfortable and safe while you are away.

It is important to note that when using this workaround, you must manually lock your Tesla as it will not automatically do so. Additionally, if you wish to let passersby know that your pet is safe and in Dog Mode, you can use the drawing app to write a message and display it on the screen.

While this workaround may seem like a hassle, it is an effective way to ensure that your pet remains comfortable and safe in your Tesla, even when the state of charge is below 20%. By following these steps, you can rest assured that your pet is well taken care of, no matter what the state of charge may be.
