In the United States, Tesla recalled more than 300,000 vehicles due to a software flaw that might cause the taillights to turn on and off randomly, increasing the possibility of a collision.
According to the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Saturday, some Model 3 and Model Y vehicles may have one or both taillights affected by the bug.
The business claimed that the software issue does not affect brake lamps, backup lamps, or turn signal lamps.
The company announced that it would address the issue with an online software update.
A few Model Y SUVs from 2020 to 2023 and Model 3 cars from 2023 are included in the recall.
That translates to a possible 321,628 automobiles.
After getting complaints about customers’ vehicle taillamps not lighting up, mainly from that outside of the United States, Tesla learned about the issue last month.
Early this month, the business finished looking at the issue.
Owners will be informed in writing commencing on January 14th.
According to business papers, the update was applied to vehicles in production and those scheduled for delivery as of November 6.
According to the records, as of Nov. 14, Tesla had three warranty claims due to the issue but was unaware of any accidents or injuries connected to the bug.
