Approximately 130,000 Tesla vehicles in the United States are being recalled due to an issue with their touch panels, which may overheat and become blank.
Some Model S sedans and Model X SUVs made between 2021 and 2022, as well as Model 3 cars and Model Y SUVs made in 2022, are included in the recall.
According to documents released on Tuesday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the central processing computers may not be able to maintain a sufficient level of cooling during the fast – charging process. Because of this, the computer might slow down or restart, making the center screen run slowly or appear blank.
Without a center screen, drivers might not be able to see their rearview cameras or control their windshield defrosters, which increases the chance of a collision.
Tesla is trying to fix the issue with online software updates.
