Tesla recalls 321000 vehicles for software problem

Tesla is recalling more than 321.000 vehicles due to a software bug that causes the taillights on some cars to not illuminate properly (via Reuters). According to a statement to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the recall covers certain 3 Model 2023 vehicles and 2020 through 2023 Model Y vehicles.

Tesla says the taillights on one or both sides of the vehicle may "intermittently illuminate" due to a problem "that may cause false fault detections during the vehicle's start-up process."

NHTSA says this could "increase the risk of a crash" in dark conditions, but Tesla has yet to report any injuries or accidents related to this problem. As you probably know most Teslas update their software over-the-air (OTA).

This is the electric vehicle maker's 19th recall this year. Last week, Tesla recalled nearly 30.000 Model X vehicles for a problem that could cause the passenger airbag to improperly deploy in "low-speed" crashes, potentially resulting in injuries if a small child is in the front seat. It also recalled more than 40.000 Model X and S cars because of a problem that could cause a loss of power steering when driving over rough roads or after hitting a pothole.
