I've been having a lot of problems with doing something that should be stupidly simple -- charging my car at home only between midnight and 3PM.
After multiple phone calls, text messages, and an onsite visit from a Tesla tech, it turns out that there's no way to do that.
Their new discovery is that Scheduled Departure is only designed to work up until 6AM. Yes, you can set any time of day in the interface. Yes, you can set Peak Hours to begin at 3PM. No, we can't exactly describe now this feature works but we can say that the software won't do what you're asking it to do.
And BTW, the car will always override the your settings if it decides that it can't get up to the percentage charge limit that you've set. IOW, you may think that setting peak hours will prevent charging during peak hours. Nope, we're going to keep charging because we haven't reached your preset SOC limit.
This is the same company what believes they can make full self driving work?
