Washington: Tesla has initiated an over-the-air (OTA) software update for nearly 2.2 million vehicles in the United States, addressing an issue with the font size on warning lights for the brake, park, and antilock brake systems. This move, although widely referred to as a “recall,” is not technically one, as it involves a simple software update rather than a physical recall of vehicles.
According to a report filed with the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the small font size on these warning lights makes them challenging to read, potentially increasing the risk of crashes. However, Tesla states that they are not aware of any accidents, injuries, or fatalities linked to this issue.
The affected models include the Tesla Model S (2012-2023), Model X (2016-2024), Model 3 (2017-2023), Model Y (2019-2024), and the Cybertruck (2024). Tesla plans to fix the problem by releasing a free, over-the-air software update to all affected vehicles. Additionally, the company will mail owner notification letters starting March 30.
Separately, the NHTSA has initiated a preliminary evaluation regarding reports of power steering issues in some 2023 Tesla Model 3 and Model Y vehicles. The agency has identified 2,388 complaints from drivers who experienced a loss of steering control. This evaluation is a step taken before issuing a formal recall.
Tesla has faced several recalls recently, including nearly 200,000 vehicles in the U.S. due to malfunctioning backup cameras and over 2 million vehicles across four models to fix a flaw in the Autopilot system.
