Tesla to recall over 800,000 cars due to seat belt horn issue

Electric car maker Tesla will recall 817,000 vehicles in the U.S. due to a possible bug with a seat belt warning horn, Reuters reported, citing a report from the country’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Some 2021-2022 Model S and Model X vehicles, 2017-2022 Model 3 vehicles are subject to recall. and Model Y 2020-2022 The report indicated that the models listed do not meet the federal motor vehicle safety standard “Occupant Collision Protection”. Experts have found that due to a software bug, the horn that alerts the driver about the unfastened seat belt may not work when the car is started.

The company, in turn, promised to fix the error and update the software. As of January 31, they are not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue.

The company previously pledged to recall 53,822 vehicles due to a possible bug in the autonomous driving program. The NHTSA report indicated that the problem was with braking in front of a no traffic sign. Experts noted that the autonomous driving program includes a rolling stop feature (“stop on the go”), due to which the car can continue to drive at a speed of 9 km / h, despite the warning sign. Model S and Model X cars produced in 2016-2022, Model 3 2017-2022 are subject to recall. and Model Y 2020-2022

At the end of December 2021, Tesla promised to recall about 475,000 vehicles due to possible technical defects. Cars could have damaged rear view camera wires when opening and closing the trunk. In June 2021, the company recalled over 285,000 electric vehicles in China due to a potential cruise control failure. Then the company warned that the system could activate by itself, which leads to unintentional acceleration of the car.
