Prior Firmware 2019.20.4.2 update, 50 mi vampire drain

After installing 2019.20.4.1, I got around 50mi vampire drain in roughly 24 hrs. The next day 2019.20.4.2 was waiting for me. After installing, I went for a drive, parked the car and noted it had 145 miles left. 12 hrs later it said 147 miles. Is the battery indicator now working off of other variables? Because since I've had the car, I've never seen it go up overnight, unless it was plugged in.

I just saw where some were reporting that the car didn't auto-lock. I imagine if it didn't do that it didn't sleep, which could account for the drain.

Sentry Mode could use 50 miles in 24 hours.

I've seen mine go up while parked. I just assumed it was due to temp change.

I see it occasionally, like Rob said, temperature

It's wireless charging. Just like Nikola envisioned. Free for the entire planet.

Santa put in the extra while you were sleeping.

I’ve noticed it as well since upgrading 2 days ago. About 10 miles lost in 4 hours today and a gain of 2 when I parked in my garage. I feel like it’s sentry mode. I have it off when parked in the garage and only lose 1 mile over night, not plugged in.

I did not get hit with this until 2019.24.1. Even when powering down the car, it doesn't really power down and I can hear things running out in the trunk and in the dash. I suspect one is a coolant pump and the other is a small fan. I'm losing about one mile per hour now and find this unacceptable as it translates to 2200 kWh per year. That's enough to drive round trip from Phoenix to San Diego about 9 times.
