A software error prevents the illumination of trailer brakelights. This could lead to a failure to illuminate during braking, increasing the risk of a crash. To resolve the issue, Tesla will notify the 2,500-plus affected owners and has already released an over-the-air firmware update to cars as of Sept. 23.
Owners with further questions can call the automaker at 888-518-3752, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
