Tesla recalls 1.1 million vehicles in US to update window reversing software

Because the window automated reversal system may not respond appropriately after sensing an obstruction, increasing the risk of damage, Tesla (TSLA.O) is recalling nearly 1.1 million U.S. vehicles.

The manufacturer of electric vehicles informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that it will update the automatic window reversal system’s software over the air. Some Model 3, Model Y, Model S, and Model X vehicles manufactured between 2017 and 2022 are included in the recall.

According to Tesla, the recall has not been the subject of any warranty claims, field reports, crashes, injuries, or fatalities.

According to the NHTSA, a window that closes improperly can apply too much force by pinching a driver or passenger before withdrawing, increasing the risk of harm.

The federal motor vehicle safety standard on power windows, according to NHTSA, was broken by the automobiles.

According to Tesla, employees discovered performance issues with the window automatic reversing mechanism in August during product testing that exhibited “higher than intended variability in response to pinch detection.”

Tesla came to the conclusion that the vehicles’ pinch detection and retraction performance in the test results did not satisfy the requirements for automatic reversing systems after doing significant more testing.

According to Tesla, starting on September 13, software updates were applied to vehicles in production and in pre-delivery, adjusting power operated window operation to the specifications.
