Tesla is recalling more than 321,000 cars due to taillight software problem


- Advertisment -

Tesla is recalling more than 321,000 vehicles due to a software issue preventing some cars’ taillights from lighting properly (through Reuters). According to to a declaration along with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the recall affects certain 2023 Model 3 vehicles and 2020 to 2023 Model Y vehicles.

Tesla says the taillights on one or both sides of the vehicle “may illuminate intermittently” due to a problem “that can cause false fault detections while waking the vehicle.” The NHTSA says this “may increase the risk of a collision” in dark conditions, but Tesla has not received any reports of injuries or accidents related to this issue. Like most Tesla recalls (except for the one involving the Model 3 seatbelt buckles), the company is addressing the issue with an over-the-air (OTA) software update.

This is the electric vehicle manufacturer’s 19th recall this year. Last week, Tesla is recalling nearly 30,000 Model X vvehicles about an issue that could cause the front passenger airbag to fail to deploy properly in low speed collisions, potentially resulting in injury if a small child is in the front seat. It too recalled more than 40,000 Model X and S cars due to a problem that can cause the power steering to fail when driving on bumpy roads or after hitting a pothole.
