Won't power down

Won't power down

My 2015 Model S does not power down when I get out. The radio and dashboard stay on for 15-20 minutes after I leave, even with the car locked. I don't think that it used to do this but I noticed it about 3-4 months ago. Is anyone else having this issue?

Are you sure the car is locked? Very likely one of the doors or trunk isn't fully closed, possibly due to a door gasket issue.

Faulty seat sensor?

Did you try a reboot?

Thanks for your suggestions. The car is locked, it happens every time for the last few months. Also, the radio should go off when the car is in park and I've exited it with my fob. At least it used to.
And, yes I've rebooted it, a few times.
I'm not sure about a seat sensor but it does power down after about 15 minutes.

The car will power off after 15 minutes even if you stay in the car, so I agree that the seat sensor is the likely culprit.

The driver display should display "Car Off" as soon as you lift off of the driver seat.
If it doesn't , it's time for a service visit.
