If you frequently travel with your pets may be interested to know that your Tesla’s air conditioning system is designed to disable the passenger-side air vents if no passenger is detected. While this may be a useful feature for energy efficiency, it could also mean that a pet sitting on the front passenger side may not get the needed cooling from the AC.
To ensure that your pet stays comfortable during the ride, you can bring up the HVAC menu and manually select the vent on the passenger side. By doing so, you will see (and feel) the air starting to flow in the on-screen animation, which can help to keep your pet cool and comfortable.
This simple workaround is particularly useful for Tesla owners who frequently travel with their pets, as it allows them to ensure that their furry friends are as comfortable as possible during the ride. By taking advantage of this feature, Tesla owners can enjoy peace of mind knowing that their pets are well taken care of, even on the hottest days.
It’s worth noting that this feature is available on all Tesla models and can be accessed via the touchscreen display in the car. By bringing up the HVAC menu and selecting the passenger-side vent, Tesla owners can easily and quickly ensure that their pets stay comfortable during the ride.
