Tesla Recalls Over 2 Million Vehicles Due to Warning Lights Problem


Tesla Inc. is issuing a recall for more than 2 million vehicles in the U.S. following a problem with warning lights, making it the company’s largest recall to date.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), warning lights with a smaller font size can hinder the readability of critical safety information on the instrument panel, increasing the risk of accidents. Approximately 2.19 million vehicles are potentially affected.

The affected models include the 2012-2023 Model S, 2016-2024 Model X, 2017-2023 Model 3, 2019-2024 Model Y, and 2024 Cybertruck vehicles.

The issue arises from an incorrect font size displayed on the instrument panel for the Brake, Park, and Antilock Brake System (ABS) warning lights. Consequently, these vehicles do not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards number 105 and 135, related to Hydraulic and Electric Brake Systems and Light Vehicle Brake Systems, respectively.

To address the problem, Tesla is rolling out an over-the-air software update free of charge. The company plans to send owner notification letters by March 30, 2024.

It’s worth noting that last month Tesla recalled nearly 200,000 vehicles in the U.S. due to a software glitch that caused the backup cameras to go dark. Furthermore, in December, over 2 million vehicles were recalled by Tesla over issues with autopilot control.

Shares of Tesla experienced a slight decline of 0.3% in premarket trades on Friday. The stock has decreased by 0.6% over the past year, while the S&P 500 index has gained 18.6%.

The response from Tesla regarding this latest recall is yet to be obtained.
