I enabled the Alexa skill yesterday, so I can stop having to fumble with my phone in the morning to start the cabin heater while getting ready for work. The skill works fine for most queries, providing historic data, but anything trying to control the car, like "Alexa, ask my car to turn on the heater" results in "I'm having trouble accessing your electrifi.com skill". This continued over 5-10 minutes, presumably because the car was asleep. Once I opened the Tesla app in my phone and waited for it to wake up the car, those same commands started working as expected through Alexa.
Is it possible to adjust the skill so if a command fails it wakes up the car and retries, or at least wakes up the car and gives a message the car is waking up, try again later?
My car is a Model 3 LR Dual motor if it matters.
