Reordering the line: “Because of a software glitch that can cause the backup camera to go dark, Tesla is recalling nearly 200,000 vehicles.”

Tesla is pulling back nearly 200,000 cars in the U.S. over a glitch with the backup camera not kicking in when the car’s in reverse. The recall involves specific 2023 Model Y, S, and X vehicles equipped with the “Full Self-Driving” computer 4.0 and running certain software versions.

As per documents shared with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Tesla explained that software instability might cause the backup camera to fail, posing an increased risk of accidents. The company maintains there haven’t been any reported crashes or injuries tied to this issue. They’ve addressed the problem with an online software update.

The recall pertains to cars using software versions 2023.44.30 through 2023.44.30.6 or 2023.44.100. Tesla plans to inform affected owners via letters starting March 22.

Tesla became aware of complaints about the problem in late December and decided to issue the recall on January 12. By January 22, the company had received 81 warranty claims potentially linked to this glitch.

It’s worth noting that despite having a “Full Self-Driving” system, Teslas can’t drive autonomously, and drivers need to be ready to take over at any moment for safety.
