Tesla remembered 3 . sample and Model Y in Australia to fix problems with their taillights.
“Due to a software bug, the taillights on one or both sides may not be as bright as they should be. If this happens in the dark, traffic behind will be reduced to visibility and may not be able to identify the vehicle,” Tesla said in the recall notice.
“Note: The brake lights, reverse lights, and turn signals are not affected by this condition and continue to function as intended.”
“If traffic behind cannot identify the vehicle, that can increase the risk of a crash that causes serious injury or death to occupants and other road users.”
Instead of requiring a return to the dealer or service center, the problem can be resolved with an over-the-air software update that the owner downloads at home.
“The software release containing the remedy has been rolled out over the air (OTA) to all affected vehicles,” Tesla said.
“If your vehicle is running software version 2022.40.100 or 2022.40.1 or later, your vehicle is not subject to this issue. You can confirm your vehicle’s software version by tapping ‘Controls’ > ‘Software’ on your touchscreen.”
