On my way home Saturday afternoon, Tesla nav indicated I would arrive with an estimated 7% charge remaining. I stopped at my kid's soccer game for a little over an hour, which was about 6 miles from home. On returning to the car with kids in tow, I was dismayed to find the charge display now showed solid red and indicated only 4 more miles of estimated range, and the display on the nav now read that I did not have enough charge to make it home.
The weather was mild, maybe about 68 degrees, not particularly windy. I have not experienced any other unusual battery charge loss recently, and my 2017 MS (about 28k miles) was serviced two months ago.
Any idea why this happened? And thoughts on how to prevent this? Are there certain settings that need to be adjusted in order to park for a short period of time if you need to maintain a certainly level of battery charge?
Thanks as always for any advice.
