I've been out of town for a week and the car's been plugged in, sitting in my garage. I checked on it once a day using the app and I lose about 3 miles each day. I have the charge level set at 50% but left it with a higher state of charge than that so it has not needed to charged at all yet.

As of today, exactly one week since I left, the app will not wake up the car. I called the help line and they said they would try to wake it up but it didn't seem like it was any different than what I was doing. They told me I might not be able to wake up the car unless someone tries to open a door or do something physically with the car.

I'm on firmware 18.13. Just wondering if anyone else has had a similar issue or knows a way to wake up the car?

I'm hoping that once the state of charge drops below 50% and the car has to charge that maybe it will help to wake it up.

Any thoughts?

Okay, after more than a day of attempts to wake the car up it just came back online. I don't know why it took so long but all is well now. Gotta love these 1st world problems!

Is it parked in an area with strong/reliable cell service? Could it have "dropped off the network" for a period of time?

That's a great question and I should of mentioned it in the first post but it does have good coverage. It's back working now so I'm not sure what happened.

How much did the car lose after the deep sleep?
It did come back online and I was able to access all the functions before I got home. It seemed like the mileage still dropped around 2-3 miles a day so I really don't think it was sleeping any more than usual, just wasn't respond for whatever reason.

Seem to be having the same problem. The app says “updated yesterday”, and I just get the spinning wheel. Hope it comes back, so I don’t have to worry about something being wrong all week!

Mine did not respond for a day and a half, then came back online and worked just fine. Give it some room, maybe your car is taking a little "me time", after all, these things do have a mind of their own!

Same sw version, mine does the same thing every other day or so after leaving the vehicle for 30 minutes to an hour. When i get back to the vehicle in this state it comes back on with a no cell service icon for a moment then goes back to full bars.
