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

Tesla is recalling more than 321,000 vehicles due to a software issue preventing some cars’ taillights from lighting properly (via Reuters). According to a filing 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 pertaining to the Model 3’s seatbelt buckles), the company is fixing the issue with an over-the-air (OTA) software update.

This is the electric vehicle manufacturer’s 19th recall this year. Last week, Tesla recalled nearly 30,000 Model X vehicles over an issue where the front passenger airbag could not deploy properly in low-speed collisions, potentially resulting in injury if a small child is in the front seat. It also recalled more than 40,000 Model X and S cars over a problem that could cause loss of power steering when driving on bumpy roads or after hitting a pothole.
