Sometimes it can be difficult to see if an electric vehicle is on, which can be worrying if dogs are inside the vehicle and it is not clear that the AC is running.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk quickly responded that they are fixing the potentially dangerous bug.

Electrek & # 39; s Take
That can be a big problem. I generally keep the fan speed on automatically, but sometimes I manually change the speed to adjust the climate quickly.
I'm sure I'm not the only one doing it.
With the current heat waves around the country, people who use dog mode regularly should be aware of the potential problem.
It's nice to see Tesla address the problem quickly. The owner posted on Twitter and Elon literally replied within a minute.
There are some pretty impressive customer service.
