Tesla Model 3: Adjusting the Front Vents

Model 3 has a unique horizontal face-level vent that spans the width of the dashboard.

Using the touchscreen, you can pinpoint exactly where you want to direct the air flowing from this vent when heating or cooling the front cabin area.

Adjusting the Front Vents


  1. Driver vent and controls
  2. Passenger vent and controls

When the face-level vent is on you can adjust the direction of the air flow from each vent. To adjust the direction of the air flow, simply touch the radiating air waves from the corresponding vent on the touchscreen. The air flows in a single stream when centered or splits into mirrored air streams when air is directed outward or inward from the center of the vent.

Note: When you split a vent into two separate air flows, the air flow in each direction is not as strong as when all air is flowing in a single direction.

Note: Outside air is drawn into Model 3 through the grill in front of the windshield.

Keep the grill clear of obstructions, such as leaves and snow.

Adjusting the Rear Vents

Model 3 has vents located at the back of the center console where air flows from when the setting is turned on from the touchscreen. To direct the flow of air in the rear cabin area, adjust the vents at the rear of the center console up, down, or from side to side as necessary.

Keep Climate On, Dog Mode, and Camp Mode

The Keep Climate On, Dog, and Camp settings allow you to keep the climate control system running when in Park, even after you've left Model 3 or choose to stay inside the vehicle.

These settings are useful when it is important to maintain the cabin temperature in hot or cold weather conditions. For example, when leaving groceries in Model 3 on hot days, you may want to use Keep Climate On to prevent spoilage.

Dog mode keeps your pet comfortable while also displaying the current cabin temperature on the touchscreen so people nearby are informed that your pet does not need to be rescued.

Camp Mode allows you to power electronics through the USB ports and 12V outlet in addition to maintaining the cabin temperature.

The touchscreen remains on so you can play music, browse the internet, play games in the arcade, or watch shows in Tesla Theater. You can also control media and climate settings from a paired phone. Camp Mode is ideal for remaining inside your vehicle, such as camping or staying with a child.

Note: In Camp Mode, Sentry Mode and the vehicle alarm system are disabled.

To operate Keep Climate On, Dog Mode, or Camp Mode:

  1. Engage the Park gear. The Keep Climate On, Dog, and Camp settings are available only when Model 3 is in Park.
  2. If necessary, adjust the climate settings.
  3. Touch the fan icon then touch Keep Climate On, Dog, or Camp.

Note: To initiate Keep Climate On, Dog Mode, or Camp Mode, the Battery's charge level must be at least 20%.

The climate control system maintains your climate settings until you shift out of Park or manually turn it off. If the Battery's charge level drops below 20%, the Tesla mobile app repeatedly starts sending you notifications reminding you to check on anything that you have left in Model 3.

The next time you drive Model 3, the climate control system continues operating using the previous climate settings from your most recent trip.

Note: Software updates cannot be performed when Keep Climate On, Dog Mode, or Camp Mode is active.

Note: The intrusion sensor (if equipped) automatically disables when Keep Climate On, Dog Mode, or Camp Mode is active. However, you can override this behavior and keep the intrusion sensor enabled. To do so, touch Controls > Safety & Security > Tilt/Intrusion after enabling Keep Climate On, Dog mode, or Camp mode. However, note that keeping the intrusion sensor enabled while Keep Climate On, Dog Mode, and Camp Mode is active can trigger an alarm event as a result of air movement inside the cabin.

Warning: You can adjust the climate control system remotely using the mobile app. However, if you use the mobile app to turn off the climate control system, Keep Climate On, Dog Mode, and Camp Mode stop operating.

Warning: Avoid using Keep Climate On, Dog Mode, or Camp Mode when the battery charge is low. When leaving a dog or pet in Model 3, you must ensure that you have your phone with you and that the Tesla mobile app is running. This allows you to proactively monitor the cabin temperature. To ensure the safety and comfort of anyone or anything in your vehicle, always make sure you have adequate cellular coverage to receive notifications and allow enough time to return to Model 3 should the climate control system stop operating-on hot days, the cabin temperature can become dangerously high within a few minutes.

Warning: Check local laws for any restrictions on leaving pets unattended in your vehicle.

Warning: Never leave a child unattended in your vehicle.
