Tesla is recalling nearly 2.2 million vehicles for a software update to fix very small warning lights
WASHINGTON (AP) — Tesla is recalling nearly all the vehicles it sold in the United States because some warning lights on the dashboard are too small.
The documents were published on Friday US safety regulators say the recall will be triggered by an online software update. It covers the 2012 to 2023 Model S, the 2016 to 2023 Model
The agency says brake, stop and anti-lock brake warning lights have a smaller font size than required by federal safety standards. This may make it difficult to read important safety information, increasing the risk of an accident.
Tesla has already started rolling out the software update, and owners will be notified by message starting March 30.
NHTSA says it found the problem in a routine safety compliance audit on January 8.
Tesla has identified three warranty claims potentially related to the issue, but has no reports of crashes or injuries.
